Steps to Setup and Secure an HP 40xx Printer

 

Setting up and securing HP printers involves the JetDirect Print Server. The 40x0s have 600N (J3113A) cards, and the 4550 has a 610N (4169A). The 610N has more options and is described after the 600N. Most configuration is done through telnet and through JetAdmin. Note: Tray 1 is usually the manual feed tray that folds out, and Tray 2 is the paper tray. A “cold reset” of an HP printer resets all settings – hold down [Go/Online] button while powering on. Mac name must be change with Mac HP Namer (see below).

Power cycle printer after changing settings.

 

1.     Determine printer IP name and number [por_lab_bw]

2.     Update JetDirect firmware to latest version – check HP website for latest version

·       Specify device IP address

·      Add IP# of target printer, click “Add”, select IP in “Devices added” window, click “Done”

·       Select target print server (JetDirect card) – verify info

·       Click “Download”, then “continue”

·       View log to verify successful update

·       ews-config (web configuration port 80)      

·       ipx/spx

·       dlc/llc

·       ethertalk

·       allow: ip address, e.g., allow: 128.114.x.x

·       To view list – allow: list

·       To clear list – allow: 0

 

JetAdmin: (Use defaults unless specified below)

·       Security

·      Control Panel Lock:  Maximum

 

From Web JetAdmin: (runs in Windows only, best with IE) (function disabled by ews-config setting above)
