How to configure a HP JetDirect J2382B to access the connected printer from Windows 2000
Posted on 2004-03-30
I have installed Windows 2000 on a Intel box in the office, and need to access the HP Inkjet printer. I have three HP LaserJets where I can set an IP address through the printer configuration menus, and they are all functioning.
I do not know how to access the JetDirect device and set up an IP address on it. When I press the test button on the device, it just gives the LAN Hardware address for the interface. I can't figure out whether it is configurable by telnet, and if so, without an IP address, how can I get to it?
This is the only color printer in the office, and I need to get it operational in fairly short order.
