HP Designjet T790 and T1300 ePrinter Series - Connect the printer to your network

The printer is able to configure itself automatically for most networks, in a similar way to any computer in the same network. The first time you connect it to a network, this process may take a few minutes.
Once the printer has a working network configuration, you can check its network address from the front panel: press , then .
Network configuration
For more details about the current network configuration, go to the front panel and press , then , then Connectivity > Network connectivity > Fast/Gigabit Ethernet > Modify configuration; or, for Jetdirect, Connectivity > Network connectivity > Jetdirect EIO > Modify configuration. From here it is possible, though not normally necessary, to change the settings manually; this can also be done remotely using the Embedded Web Server or the HP Utility.
  note:
You may find it helpful to print out the full printer network configuration on paper. This can be done from the front panel: press , then , then Internal prints > Service information prints > Print connectivity config. If you do not print out the full network configuration, consider making a note of the printer's IP address and network name.
If you accidentally misconfigure the printer’s network settings, you can restore the network settings to their factory values from the front panel: press , then , then Connectivity > Network connectivity > Fast/Gigabit Ethernet > Restore factory settings; or, for Jetdirect, Connectivity > Network connectivity > Jetdirect EIO > Restore factory settings. Then you must restart the printer. This automatically provides a working network configuration for most networks. The printer’s other settings remain unchanged.
Using IPv6
Your printer supports almost all network connectivity features using IPv6, just as it does using IPv4. To make full use of IPv6, you may need to connect your printer to an IPv6 network in which there are IPv6 routers and servers.
In most IPv6 networks, the printer will configure itself automatically as follows, and no user configuration is necessary:
  1. The printer assigns itself a link-local IPv6 address (which starts with “fe80::”).
  2. The printer assigns itself stateless IPv6 addresses as indicated to it by any IPv6 routers on the network.
  3. If no stateless IPv6 addresses can be assigned, the printer will try to obtain IPv6 addresses using DHCPv6. It will also do so if the routers instruct it to do so.
The stateless and DHCPv6 IPv6 addresses can be used to access the printer, and in most IPv6 networks this will be appropriate.
The link-local IPv6 address works only in the local subnet. Although it is possible to access the printer using this address, it is not recommended.
It is possible to assign a manual IPv6 address to the printer, using the front panel or the Embedded Web Server. It is also possible to disable IPv6 completely in the printer. However, it is not possible to disable IPv4 in the printer, and therefore it is not possible to configure the printer as IPv6-only.
  note:
In typical IPv6 use, your printer will have multiple IPv6 addresses, although it has only one IPv4 address.
  note:
You will generally find it easier to use IPv4 unless you have a specific need to use IPv6.
Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows Server 2008, and the new HP Printing and Imaging devices will have IPv6 enabled by default. For further information on IPv6, see http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00840100/c00840100.pdf. This document discusses how name resolution plays a fundamental role in Dual-Stack transition methods. Using the name resolution algorithm in Windows Vista, the document goes through various network environments and studies how the introduction of routable IPv6 addresses will affect network applications. It also discusses DHCPv6, SLAAC and the impact to DNS, and makes some recommendations.
Using IPSec
Your printer supports IPSec.
However, successful IPSec configuration requires advanced network expertise, and is beyond the scope of this document. For IPSec to work, the printer’s IPSec configuration must exactly match that of the other devices in your network. Any discrepancy will prevent communication with your printer until the configuration is corrected or IPSec is disabled. For more information on IPsec configuration, download the file IPsec_Admin_Guide.pdf from http://www.hp.com/go/T790/manuals/ or http://www.hp.com/go/T1300/manuals/.
