				HP JetDirect Card Support

		   Patrick Powell <papowell@astart.com>
			  Sun Oct 29 07:42:31 PST 1995


1.  Overview

The  HPJetDirect  card  can  be configured through the front
panel  or through a set of network files.  Here is a summary
of  the  methods  used  from  UNIX  systems, or when you are
desperate, to configure the printer.

2.  Network Address

 You can set the network address from the front panel.

Reset  the printer; use the MENU, +-, SELECT keys as follows:

 MENU  -> MIO MENU (use MENU to display MIO MENU)
 ITEM  -> CFG NETWORK=NO*
 +     -> CFG NETWORK=YES
 ENTER -> CFG NETWORK=YES*
 ITEM  -> TCP/IP=OFF* (use ITEM to display TCP/IP)
 +     -> TCP/IP=ON
 ENTER -> TCP/IP=ON*
 ITEM  -> CFG TCP/IP=NO* (use ITEM to display TCP/IP)
 +     -> CFG TCP/IP=YES
 ENTER -> CFG TCP/IP=YES*
 ITEM  -> BOOTP=NO*
	 (Enable BOOTP if you want to - see below)
 ITEM  -> IP BYTE 1=0*
	 This is IP address MSB byte.
	 Use +- keys to change value, and then ENTER to change
	 Use ITEM keys to get IP BYTE=2,3,4
 ITEM  -> SM BYTE 1=255*
	  This is the subnet mask value
	 Use +- keys to change value, and then ENTER to change
	 Use ITEM keys to get IP BYTE=2,3,4
 ITEM  -> LG BYTE 1=255*
	 This is the Syslog server (LoGger) IP address
	 Use +- keys to change value, and then ENTER to change
	 Use ITEM keys to get IP BYTE=2,3,4
 ITEM  -> GW BYTE 1=255*
	 This is the subnet gateway (router) IP address
	 Use +- keys to change value, and then ENTER to change
	 Use ITEM keys to get IP BYTE=2,3,4
 ITEM  -> TIMEOUT=90
	  This is the connection timeout value.  It puts a limit
	 on time between connections.  A value of 10 is reasonable.








3.  BOOTP Information

 If  you have a bootp server, you can put this information
in  the  bootptab  file.   To  use this, you must enable the
bootp  option  on  the printer.  The T144 option specifies a
file to be read from the bootp server.  This file is read by
using  the  TFTP  protocol, and you must have a TFTPD server
enabled.  Here is a sample bootptab entry.

# Example /etc/bootptab: database for bootp server (/etc/bootpd).
# Blank lines and lines beginning with '#' are ignored.
#
# Legend:
#
#       first field -- hostname
#                       (may be full domain name)
#
#       hd -- home directory
#       bf -- bootfile
#       cs -- cookie servers
#       ds -- domain name servers
#       gw -- gateways
#       ha -- hardware address
#       ht -- hardware type
#       im -- impress servers
#       ip -- host IP address
#       lg -- log servers
#       lp -- LPR servers
#       ns -- IEN-116 name servers
#       rl -- resource location protocol servers
#       sm -- subnet mask
#       tc -- template host (points to similar host entry)
#       to -- time offset (seconds)
#       ts -- time servers
#
# Be careful about including backslashes where they're needed.  Weird (bad)
# things can happen when a backslash is omitted where one is intended.
#
peripheral1:
:hn:ht=ether:vm=rfc1048:
:ha=08000903212F:
:ip=190.40.101.22:
:sm=255.255.255.0:
:gw=190.40.101.1:
:lg=190.40.101.3:
:T144="hpnp/peripheral1.cfg":

If  you  are  using the T144 option, you will need to create
the  configuration file.  The sample configuration file from
the HP Direct distribution is included below.

#
# Example HP Network Peripheral Interface configuration file
# @(#) /home/papowell/LPRng/FILTERS/CTI-ifhp/RCS/README.hpjetdirect,v 3.2 1998/03/19 14:21:31 papowell Exp
#
# Comments begin with '#' and end at the end of the line.
# Blank lines are ignored.  Entries cannot span lines.

# Name is the peripheral (or node) name.  It is displayed on the peripheral's
# self-test page or configuration plot, and when sysName is obtained through
# SNMP.  This name can be provided in the BOOTP response or can be specified
# in the NPI configuration file to prevent the BOOTP response from overflowing
# the packet.  The domain portion of the name is not necessary because the
# peripheral does not perform Domain Name System (DNS) searches.  Name is
# limited to 64 characters.

name: picasso

# Location describes the physical location of the peripheral.  This is the
# value used by the interface for the MIB-II sysLocation object.  The default
# location is undefined.  Only printable ASCII characters are allowed.
# Maximum length is 64 characters.

location: 1st floor, south wall

# Contact is the name of the person who administers or services the peripheral
# and may include how to contact this person.  It is limited to 64 characters.
# This is the value used by the interface for the MIB-II sysContact object.
# The default contact is undefined.  Only printable ASCII characters are
# allowed.  Maximum length is 64 characters.

contact: Phil, ext 1234

# The host access list contains the list of hosts or networks of hosts
# that are allowed to connect to the peripheral.  The format is
# "allow: netnum [mask]", where netnum is a network number or a host IP
# address.  Mask is an address mask of bits to apply to the network number
# and connecting host's IP address to verify access to the peripheral.
# The mask usually matches the network or subnet mask, but this is not
# required.  If netnum is a host IP address, the mask 255.255.255.255 can
# be omitted.  Up to ten access list entries are permitted.

# to allow all of network 10 to access the peripheral:
allow: 10.0.0.0  255.0.0.0

# to allow a single host without specifying the mask:
allow: 15.1.2.3

# Idle timeout is the time (in seconds) after which an idle
# print data connection is closed.  A value of zero disables
# the timeout mechanism.  The default timeout is 90 seconds.

idle-timeout: 120

# A community name is a password that allows SNMP access to MIB values on
# the network peripheral.  Community names are not highly secure; they are
# not encrypted across the network.  The get community name determines which
# SNMP GetRequests are responded to.  By default, the network peripheral
# responds to all GetRequests.  The get community name is limited to 32
# characters.
#
# For hpnpstat and hpnpadmin, the community name can be stored in
# /usr/lib/hpnp/hpnpsnmp.

get-community-name: blue

# The set community name is similar to the get community name.  The set
# community name determines which SNMP SetRequests are responded to.  In
# addition, SetRequests are only honored if the sending host is on the
# host access list.  By default, the network peripheral does not respond
# to any SetRequests.  The set community name is limited to 32 characters.
#
# The set community name can come from /usr/lib/hpnp/hpnpsnmp
# if it is the same as the get community name.  We recommend that the
# set community name be different from the get community name though.

set-community-name: yellow

# SNMP traps are asynchronous notifications of some event that has occurred.
# SNMP traps are useful only with network management software.  Traps are
# sent to specific hosts and include a trap community name.  Up to four
# hosts can be sent SNMP traps.   The trap community name is limited to
# 32 characters.  The default name is public.

trap-community-name: red

# The SNMP trap destination list specifies systems to which SNMP
# traps are sent.  Up to four IP addresses are allowed.  If no
# trap destinations are listed, traps are not sent.

trap-dest: 15.1.2.3
trap-dest: 15.2.3.4

# The SNMP authentication trap parameter enables or disables the sending
# of SNMP authentication traps.  Authentication traps indicate that an SNMP
# request was received and the community name check failed.  By default,
# the parameter is off.

authentication-trap: on

# The syslog-facility parameter sets the source facility identifier that the
# card uses when issuing syslog messages.  Other facilities, for example,
# include the kernel (LOG_KERN), the mail system (LOG_MAIL), and the spooling
# system (LOG_LPR).  The card only allows its syslog facility to be configured
# to one of the local user values (LOG_LOCAL0 through LOG_LOCAL7).  The
# selectable option strings, local0 through local7 (configured to LOG_LOCAL0
# through LOG_LOCAL7, respectively) are case insensitive.  The default
# syslog-facility for the card is LOG_LPR.

syslog-facility: local2

# This parameter allows the card to treat hosts on other subnets as if the
# hosts were on the card's subnet.  This parameter determines the TCP
# Maximum Segment Size (MSS) advertised by the card to hosts on other subnets
# and affects the card's initial receive-window size.  The card will use a
# TCP MSS of 1460 bytes for local hosts, and 536 bytes for a non-local host.
# The default is off, that is, the card will use the maximum packet sizes
# only on the card's configured subnet.
#
# The configuration utility does not allow access to this parameter.  If you
# want to configure it, you must manually edit the NPI configuration file
# and add it to the bottom of the entry for the network peripheral.

subnets-local: on

# This parameter affects how the card handles TCP connection requests from
# the host.  By default, the JetDirect MPS card will accept a TCP connection
# even if the peripheral is off-line.  If this parameter is set to "on", then
# the card will only accept a TCP connection when the peripheral is on-line.

old-idle-mode: off

4. Paper Tray Selection

Be careful with your paper tray selection.  You should configure the
printer,  using the front panel switches,  to select the FIRST paper
tray.  See your printer documentation on this.  Unfortunately,  different
models of HP printers have different methods of handling paper trays.
