Laserjet 3100 use with an ethernet printserver

HP says a 3100 will not work with a printserver.  Does this mean I can't use it at all, or just can't get the full functionality for scan, etc.  All I need to do is print.  Fax and Copy I can do from the device.

When HP say thet this printer is not networkablwe, they mean it, oyu cannot attach it to a jetfdirect, (you physically can but it will not function)

this is a host based printer/mfp which means it uses the pc's resources to spool and format the job. because of this it has no way to process the jobs that are sent to it..

also you c annot scan or fax over the network from this device, as it has no comprehension of that functionality... the software only handles local connections.


if you need a networkabnle one, i would suggest any model from the 3200 upwards... these are all networkable via jetdirect..
