HP Deskjet 1220C Professional Series Printer - Installing the Printer for Use with an HP Jetdirect Print Server

Overview
There are primarily two configurations that allow the HP Deskjet 1220C series printer to be used with an HP Jetdirect print server. These configurations are:
  • Peer-to-Peer connect
  • Client/Server or Network connect
Figure : HP Jetdirect connect
In a Peer-to-Peer connect (Direct Mode) configuration, the printer is connected directly to the parallel port of an HP Jetdirect external print server. The HP Jetdirect print server is then connected to the network. The computers on the network are known as the client or remote computers. Print jobs sent from the remote computers travel across the network, directly to the HP Jetdirect print server, and then out the parallel port to the printer.
With a Client/Server or Network connect configuration, print jobs sent from client computers travel across the network to a Novell NetWare or Windows server. The Novell NetWare or Windows server will spool all the print jobs for the printer and then send them to the HP Jetdirect print server (which sends them to the printer) one at a time.
A Peer-to-Peer connect requires each computer on the network to spool its own print jobs. The HP Jetdirect print server will determine which client computer is the next to print after the current print job finishes printing. Each client with a print job must wait and check back at periodic intervals for its turn to print. This can create a lot of network traffic when there are print jobs from multiple clients, all trying to use the printer at the same time.
A Client/Server connect can be used to significantly reduce the amount of traffic on the network (compared to a Peer-to-Peer connect) because all print jobs are sent to the Novell or Windows server. The server will determine the print job order and send the print jobs to the HP Jetdirect print server without the client computers needing to wait for a turn.
Peer-to-Peer configuration
The instructions that follow may be used to install the HP Deskjet 1220C printer driver for use in a Peer-to-Peer environment. Steps 1 through 3 need to be performed only once. Steps 4 through 8 need to be performed on each computer that will use the printer.
Windows 95/98 and NT 4.0 or 2000
  1. Set up the printer following the Setting Up steps in the User's Guide or Setup Poster.
  2. Connect the printer to the HP Jetdirect print server using an IEEE-1284 compliant parallel cable.
  3. Configure the HP Jetdirect print server for use on the network. Refer to the documentation that came with the HP Jetdirect print server for help configuring the device.
  4. Insert the HP Deskjet 1220C Starter CD into the CD-ROM drive. After a few seconds, the menu for the Starter CD should appear automatically. If not, use the following steps to run the driver installation program:
    1. Select Start and then Run.
    2. In the Open box, type the letter of your CD-ROM drive followed by :\SETUP.EXE and press Enter. For example, if the CD-ROM drive letter is D, type D:\SETUP.EXE and press Enter.
       note:
      Using the Make Disk Software utility, included on the HP Deskjet 1220C Starter CD, the driver files can easily be copied to a network drive. The driver's SETUP.EXE file may then be run from the network drive instead of carrying the Starter CD around to each computer.
  5. Select Install Printer Software when the Starter CD menu appears.
  6. When asked how the printer will be managed or attached to the computer, select "Connected via the network" and click Next.

Configuring the server
The instructions that follow may be used to install and configure the HP Deskjet 1220C series printer for use with an HP Jetdirect print server going through a Novell NetWare or Windows server.
Windows 95/98 and NT 4.0 or 2000
  1. Set up the printer following the Setting Up steps in the User's Guide or Setup Poster.
  2. Connect the printer to the HP Jetdirect print server using an IEEE-1284 compliant parallel cable.
  3. Configure the HP Jetdirect print server for use on the network. Refer to the documentation that came with the print server for help configuring the device.
  4. Insert the HP Deskjet 1220C Starter CD into the CD-ROM drive. After a few seconds, the menu for the Starter CD should appear automatically. If not, use the following steps to run the driver installation program.
    1. Select Start and then Run.
    2. In the Open box, type the letter of your CD-ROM drive followed by :\SETUP.EXE and press Enter. For example, if the CD-ROM drive letter is D, type D:\SETUP.EXE and press Enter.
       note:
      Using the Make Disk Software utility, included on the HP Deskjet 1220C Starter CD, the driver files can easily be copied to a network drive. The driver's SETUP.EXE file may then be run from the network drive instead of carrying the Starter CD around to each computer.
  5. Select Install Printer Software when the Starter CD menu appears.
  6. When asked how the printer will be managed or attached to the computer, select "Connected via the network" and click Next.
  7. Select "Windows NT/2000 Server or Peer-to-Peer Setup" and click Next.
  8. Follow the prompts on the screen to complete the installation.
  9. Select Start, Settings, and Printers.
  10. Right-click the HP Deskjet 1220C Printer icon and select Sharing. If the Sharing option does not appear using Windows 95/98, enable printer sharing using the following steps.
    1. Select Start, Settings, and Control Panel.
    2. Double-click the Network icon and click the "File and Printer Sharing" button.
    3. Check the option "I want to be able to allow others to print to my printer(s)" and click OK.
    4. Click OK and close the Control Panel.
  11. Select Shared or Shared As and enter a Share Name for the printer (for example, DJ 1220C). This is the name that client computers will use to access the printer.
  12. Windows NT 4.0/2000 allows printer drivers for multiple operating systems to be assigned to a printer. For example, a Windows 95/98 client computer can request the Windows NT server to send a compatible printer driver across the network, provided one has been assigned to the printer. These drivers are commonly referred to as alternate drivers. If the client and server both run the same operating system, an alternate driver is not necessary. An alternate driver or additional driver for Windows 2000 should be installed if you are running a Windows NT/2000 server with Windows 95/98 clients.
    If an alternate driver is not needed, click OK. Otherwise, the alternate driver for Windows 95/98 clients may be installed onto a Windows NT server using the follow steps:
    1. Highlight the Windows 95 operating system from the Alternate Drivers and Additional Drivers in the Windows 2000 listing and click OK.
    2. A prompt will appear requesting the location of the driver's .INF file. Browse to the Starter CD's \WINDOWS\PCL3\WIN9X\ENU folder and select the HP1220C.INF file.
    3. Click OK to install the alternate driver.
  13. Close the Printers window. The printer should now be accessible to other network users.
Novell NetWare
  1. Set up the printer following the Setting Up steps in the User's Guide or Setup Poster.
  2. Connect the printer to the HP Jetdirect print server using an IEEE-1284 compliant parallel cable.
  3. Configure the HP Jetdirect print server for use on the network. Refer to the documentation that came with the HP Jetdirect print server for help configuring the device for use with Novell NetWare.
     note:
    The Windows 95/98 and Windows NT 4.0 printer drivers included on the HP Deskjet 1220C Starter CD support installation using Novell Distributed Printer Services (NDPS). For Windows 95/98, use the DJ1220C.INF file located in the \WINDOWS\PCL3\WIN9X\ENU folder. For Windows NT 4.0, use the DJ1220C.INF file located in the \WINDOWS\PCL3\WINNT\ENU folder. Refer to Novell's documentation for additional information on configuring a printer for installation using NDPS.
Configuring the clients
After the printer driver has been configured for use on the Novell NetWare or Windows server, the printer driver must be installed on each of the client computers to access the printer. Any one of the three installation methods below may be used to configure a Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.0/2000 client to use a locally shared printer.
Installing the driver using Point and Print
A Point and Print installation will copy the required printer driver files from the server to the client system (across the network). Any of the following Point and Print methods may be used to install the printer driver onto the client system.
 note:
If the server is running Windows NT 4.0/2000 and you wish to install the Windows 95/98 driver to client computers over the network, a Windows 95 alternate driver must be installed onto the server.
