HP JetDirect print servers support IP configuration from a
Windows NT or 2000 DHCP server. This section describes how
to set up a pool, or “scope,” of IP addresses that the Windows
server can assign or lease to any requester. When configured for
BOOTP/DHCP operation (factory default), the HP JetDirect print
server makes a request to the DHCP server for its IP
configuration when you turn the print server on.
This information is provided as an overview. See the information
supplied with your DHCP software for specific information or for
To avoid problems resulting from IP addresses that change,
Hewlett-Packard recommends that you assign IP addresses with
infinite leases or reserved IP addresses to all of you printers.
