Network config. menu

Use this menu to establish network configuration settings.

Menu item



Access the TCP/IP menu and set TCP/IP protocol parameters.

BOOTP=YES* Enable IPv4 configuration by a BOOTP Server.

DHCP=YES* Enable IPv4 configuration by a DHCP Server.

If DHCP=YES* and the print server has a DHCP lease, you can configure the following DHCP

RELEASE: Select whether to release (YES) or save (NO) the current lease.

RENEW: Select whether to renew (YES or NO) the lease.

AUTO IP=YES* Automatically assign a link-local IPv4 address in the form 169.254.x.x.

If you specify BOOTP=NO*, DHCP=NO* and AUTO IP=NO*, you can manually set the following
TCP/IPv4 parameters from the control panel:

Each byte of the IPv4 address (IP)

Subnet Mask (SM)

Syslog Server (LG)

Default Gateway (GW)

Idle Timeout period (default is 270 seconds, 0 disables the timeout)

CFG DNS 1: IPv4 address of a primary DNS server (one byte at a time).

CFG DNS 2: IPv4 address of a secondary DNS server (one byte at a time).

IPV6 = YES*: Enable IPv6 operation. Select NO to disable IPv6 operation.

POLICY=RTR_AV/RTR_UN/ALWAYS: Set one of the following IPv6 addressing policies:

RTR_AV: (default) Stateful auto-configuration method is determined by a router. The router
specifies whether the print server obtains its address, configuration information, or both from
a DHCPv6 server.

RTR_UN: Attempt to obtain stateful configuration from a DHCPv6 server (when a router is
not available).

ALWAYS: Always attempt to obtain stateful configuration from a DHCPv6 server (whether
or not a router is available).

MANUAL= KEEP/DISABLE: Set the behavior of a manually configured IPv6 address detected on
the print server.

KEEP (default): Maintain the address in an active state.

DISABLE: Maintain the address but in an inactive state.

Print an HP Jetdirect configuration page to verify your settings. (The print server can overwrite
selected parameters with values that ensure proper operation.)

Embedded Web server accepts communications using HTTPS (Secure HTTP) only, or both HTTP
and HTTPS.

HTTPS: Accept only HTTPS (print server appears as a secure site).

HTTP/HTTPS: Accept either HTTP or HTTPS.


Reset current security settings to factory defaults.

KEEP (default): Retain current security settings.

RESET: Reset security settings to factory defaults.


Disable Firewall.

KEEP (default): Retain Firewall operation as configured.

DISABLE: Disable Firewall operation.


Print a configuration page for the selected item.

SECURITY: Print the current security settings.


Manually configure the HP Jetdirect print server's network link.

Set the link speed and communication mode. These must match the network. The available
settings depend on the print server model.


Changing the link setting can cause the loss of network communication with the print


AUTO (default): Use auto-negotiation to set the highest link speed and communication mode
allowed. If auto-negotiation fails, either 100TX HALF or 10TX HALF is set depending on the
detected link speed of the hub/switch port. (A 1000T half-duplex selection is not supported.)

10T HALF: 10 Mbps, half-duplex operation.

10T FULL: 10 Mbps, Full-duplex operation.

100TX HALF: 100 Mbps, half-duplex operation.

100TX FULL: 100 Mbps, full-duplex operation.

100TX AUTO: Limits auto-negotiation to a maximum link speed of 100 Mbps.

1000TX FULL: 1000 Mbps, full-duplex operation.
