I have two Brother laser (5240 and 5340) printers hooked up via parallel cable to this print server (HP JetDirect J3254A)
The both show detected on port 1 and 2.
Both users need to print to their own printer but it only prints to one from both stations
How to configure it correctly?

Thank you so much

Are you manually creating the printers on the PC's? If so, when setting up the TCP/IP printer port, you have to select the port on the print server to use. If it properly detects your device, it should list only the two ports.

Hope this helps

Normally, printservers that have several output ports, drive them by using different IP-Ports.
I have not found your specific printserver, but by experience most manufacturers do such things mostly the same way. Here is a "cut and paste" from hp's print server documentation:


•9100 TCP port is used for printing. Port numbers 9101 and 9102 are for parallel ports 2 and 3 on the three-port HP Jetdirect external print servers.

Hence you might try the port 9101 for the second printer.
