I have a HP LaserJet 4 Plus and I need to get it connected to my Sygate home network.  I am running the network cable from the printer to the hub (I was told the printer does not need to be connected directly to my computer if it's networked).  Now what???  I don't see where I can add this printer and have the computer "see" it.  Please advise.

You will need a form of Jetdirect from HPs website, not familar with Sygate Network though.  Once you have JetDirect, set it up on one computer to act as the Print server and have all of the other computers connect as clients to the Print Server.

I currently have a HP DeskJet 600 color printer hooked up to the server computer.  Can't I run both printers through the network (one for high-speed b & w and one for color)?  Do they both need to be directly hooked up to the main computer (print server)?

You can run multiple printers from the same computer.  With JetDirect software it is a network connection that is established to use the HP LaserJet 4 Plus, so it is not directly connected to your computer.

I assume you are using HP JetDirect card for the LaserJet and you are using Windows 2000 on your computer.  You can configure IP address of the JetDirect card from the front panel of HP LJ4+.  On your W2K desktop, you can then configure IP printing to that IP printer.
If possible, please specify your environment in detail.

The answer(s) I received were not considered helpful.  I asked around at work and realized I needed to reset the printer's TCP/IP settings.  Now it works.
