Updating jetdirect firmware dating selective singles
I tried different settings for a few days, but was still unsuccessful.To get started I pushed the test button to get configuration info sheet printed. I noticed that the device was already configured for a network so did some digging and found out I could factory reset the device.Ok so now I have a local IP address but for this to work properly I need to reserve the IP address issued in my router so that the Jet Direct always has the same IP address. I setup a network printer pointed at the IP address allocated for the Jet Direct. There’s supposed to be a folder called Download on the Jet Direct via FTP but I don’t see one.Upon installing this software, the software detects the print server fine, and wants to upgrade, but it just sat there for a few minutes and then went back to the screen it was on before.I tried with HP Web Jet Admin too, and got the same result.I have an older HP Laser Jet P2035 that I picked up a while back for like .The printer works great but it isn’t networked so every time something needs to be printed I have to tote the laptop into the room and hook it up via USB. An office was getting rid of a bunch of stuff recently and one of the things they got rid of was an HP Jet Direct 300X j3263a.
This device has a network port and a serial port that attaches to the printer.Today I hooked up the Jet Direct to my printer and the network.
