HP Laserjet 2200

Hi Experts

Is it necessary to install/configure Print Server for network printer? I am talking about HP Laserjet 2200 Printer. We have 20 user's only.

What is easy why to configure HP Laserjet 2200, in 20 user enviroment.
I dont want to install its as shared printer on some PC, since as PC goes down printer also won't work.

If the printer is on the network (it has an ethernet connector), that's exactly how you do it, but you have to do it for each machine that needs to use that printer.

If your Printer has a Network Interface, you can connect directly to your Network .. No need of print server.

Network Interface is optional in this model, if you have it , you dont need a print server ... If you dont , you have to have a Print Server

Take the side panel off (where the USB/Parallel cables run) and check if there is a JetDirect card fitted already.  If not you should be able to get a 615n or 625n card to fit the slot below the USB port which will act as print server for you and this comes with HP's Jet Direct server software that will allow you to configure it.

If there is already a Network interface try switching the printer on while holding both the top buttons down you should get two pages printed, the second contains the print server details.  No second page - no active print server.
