TCP/IP protocol information

Message

Description

Status

The current TCP status:
Ready: The print server is waiting for data over TCP/IP.
Disabled: TCP/IP was manually disabled.
Initializing: The print server is searching for the BOOTP
server or trying to get the configuration file through TFTP. An
additional status message might also display.

Note

If the print server is not ready, an error code and message
displays.

Host Name

The host name configured on the print server. The host name
might be truncated.
Not Specified: No host name was specified in a BOOTP
response or TFTP configuration file.
NPIxxxxxx: The default name is NPIxxxxxx, where xxxxxx is
the last six digits of the LAN hardware (MAC) address.

IP Address

The Internet Protocol (IP) address assigned to the print
server. This is a required entry for its operation on a TCP/IP
network. During initialization, a temporary value of 0.0.0.0
displays. After two minutes, a default IP address of
192.0.0.192 is assigned, which might not be a valid IP
address for your network.
Not Specified: An IP address is not assigned or the value is
zero.

Subnet Mask

The IP subnet mask configured on the print server. During
initialization, a temporary value of 0.0.0.0 displays. Depending
on the configuration parameters, the print server might
automatically assign a usable default value.
Not Specified: A subnet mask is not configured.

Default Gateway

The IP address of the gateway used when sending packets off
of the local network. You can only configure one default
gateway. During initialization, a temporary value of 0.0.0.0
displays. If an IP address is not provided, the print server’s IP
address is used.
Not Specified: A default gateway is not configured.

Config By

Specifies how the print server obtained its IP configuration:
BOOTP: Automatic configuration via a BOOTP server.
BOOTP/TFTP: Automatic configuration via a BOOTP server
and TFTP configuration file.
DHCP: Automatic configuration via a DHCP server.
DHCP/TFTP: Automatic configuration via a DHCP server and
TFTP configuration file.
RARP: Automatic configuration via the Reverse Address
Resolution Protocol.
User Specified: Manual configuration via Telnet, the printer’s
control panel, HP Web JetAdmin, an embedded Web server,
or another method.
Default IP: The default IP address was assigned. This
address might not be a valid address for your network.
Not Configured: The print server was not configured with IP
parameters. Make sure that TCP/IP is enabled, or check for
an error status.

BOOTP Server
or
DHCP Server
or
RARP Server

This message displays if BOOTP, DHCP, or RARP is used for
TCP/IP configuration. This message specifies the IP address
of the system that responds to the print server’s request for
automatic TCP/IP configuration over the network.
Not Specified: The configuration server’s IP address could
not be determined or was set to zero in the response packet.

BOOTP/DHCP Server

This message displays during initialization while the print
server attempts to obtain its TCP/IP configuration from a
BOOTP or DHCP server. The temporary address of 0.0.0.0
displays.
Not Specified: The configuration server’s IP address could
not be determined or was set to zero in the response packet.

TFTP Server

The IP address of the system where the TFTP configuration
file is located. During initialization, the temporary address of
0.0.0.0 displays.
Not Specified: A TFTP server has not been set.

Config File

The name of the print server’s configuration file. The file
pathname might be truncated to fit on two lines.
Not Specified: A file was not specified in the BOOTP reply
from the host.

Domain Name

The Domain Name System (DNS) name of the domain where
the print server resides (for example, support.company.com).
It is not the fully qualified DNS name because the host printer
name is not included (for example,
printer1.support.company.com).
Not Specified: A domain name has not been configured on
the print server.

DNS Server

The IP address of the Domain Name System (DNS) server.
Not Specified: A DNS server’s IP address has not been
configured on the print server.

WINS Server

The IP address of the Windows Internet Name Service
(WINS) server.
Not Specified: A WINS server’s IP address has not been
configured on the print server.

Syslog Server

The IP address of the syslog server configured on the print
server.
Not Specified: A syslog server has not been configured.

Idle Timeout

The timeout value, expressed in seconds, after which the print
server closes an idle TCP print data connection. Acceptable
values are integers between 0 and 3600 seconds. A value of
zero turns the timeout mechanism off. The default is 90
seconds.

SLP

Specifies if the print server sends Service Location Protocol
(SLP) packets used by system applications for automated
installation.
Enabled: The print server sends SLP packets.
Disabled: The print server does not send SLP packets.

Access List

Specifies if a host access control list is configured on the print
server. A host access control list specifies the IP address of
individual systems, or IP network of systems, that are allowed
access to the print server and device.
Specified: A host access list is configured on the print server.
Not Specified: A host access list is not configured on the
print server. All systems are allowed access.

If HP Web JetAdmin finds the print server on the network, the
URL of the host system used for HP Web JetAdmin services
displays. The URL is limited to two lines and might be
truncated.
Not Specified: The URL of the HP Web JetAdmin host
system could not be identified or is not configured.
