Using network protocols

The HP JetDirect 175X supports the following protocols:

TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol)

IPX/SPX (Internetwork Packet Exchange)

AppleTalk

Note

IPX/SPX is not supported on Novell networks. You must configure the
HP JetDirect print server for a direct peer-to-peer connection from the
computer to the device rather than through a Novell server. This is
sometimes called IPX direct mode.

If you are setting up client-server printing on a Microsoft
Windows 95, 98, NT, or 2000 network, you can use the
installation software to configure your Windows 95, 98, NT,
or 2000 print server and then share the printer with client
computers.

If you are setting up peer-to-peer printing on a Microsoft
Windows 95, 98, NT, or 2000 network, you can use the
installation software to configure each client to print directly to
the printer.
