HP Color LaserJet CP2020 Series Printer - Configure the product on the network

To configure network parameters on the product, use the product control panel, or the embedded Web server. For Windows operating systems, use the HP ToolboxFX software. For Mac OS X, use the Utility button.

Set up the product on the network

Hewlett-Packard recommends that you use the HP software installer on the product CD-ROM to set up printer drivers for networks.
note:
You must connect the printer to your network prior to starting the software installation.
This product supports a 10/100 network connection. Plug the network cable into the product and your network connection.

  1. On the control panel, press OK.
  2. Use the arrow buttons to select Reports, and then press OK.
  3. Use the arrow buttons to select Network report, and then press OK.

Configuration page

The configuration page lists the current settings and properties of the product. To print the configuration page from the product, complete the following steps.
  1. On the control panel, press OK.
  2. Use the arrow buttons to select Reports, and then press OK.
  3. Use the arrow buttons to select Config report, and then press OK.

IP address

You can configure the IP address manually or automatically via DHCP, BootP, or AutoP.

Manual configuration

  1. On the control-panel menu, press OK.
  2. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Network config., and then press OK.
  3. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select TCP/IP config, and then press OK.
  4. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Manual, and then press OK.
  5. Press the Right arrow () button to increase the value for the first section of the IP address. Press the Left arrow () button to decrease the value. When the value is correct, press OK. Repeat this process for the other three sections of the IP address.
  6. If the address is correct, use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Yes, and then press OK. Repeat step 5 for the subnet mask and default gateway settings.
    -or-
    If the IP address is incorrect, use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select No, and then press OK. Repeat step 5 to establish the correct IP address, and then repeat step 5 for the subnet mask and default gateway settings.

Automatic configuration

note:
Automatic is the default Network config. TCP/IP config setting.
  1. On the control-panel menu, press OK.
  2. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Network config., and then press OK.
  3. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select TCP/IP config, and then press OK.
  4. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Automatic, and then press OK.
    It might take several minutes before the automatic IP address is ready for use.
    note:
    To disable or enable specific automatic IP modes (such as BOOTP, DHCP, or AutoIP), use the embedded Web server or HP ToolboxFX.

Show or hide the IP address on the control panel

note:
When Show IP address is On, the IP address will alternately appear on the control-panel display with the print-cartridge-status gauges.
  1. On the control-panel menu, press OK.
  2. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Network config., and then press OK.
  3. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Show IP address, and then press OK.
  4. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Yes or No, and then press OK.

Set automatic crossover

  1. On the control-panel menu, press OK.
  2. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Network config., and then press OK.
  3. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Automatic crossover, and then press OK.
  4. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select On or Off, and then press OK.

Set network services

  1. On the control-panel menu, press OK.
  2. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Network config., and then press OK.
  3. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Network services, and then press OK.
  4. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select IPv4 or IPv6, and then press OK.
  5. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select On or Off, and then press OK.

Restore defaults (network settings)

  1. On the control-panel menu, press OK.
  2. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Network config., and then press OK.
  3. Use the Left arrow () or the Right arrow () button to select Restore defaults, and then press OK.
  4. Press OK to restore the factory network default settings. Press X to exit the menu without restoring the factory network default settings.

TCP/IP

Similar to a common language that people use to communicate with each other, TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is a suite of protocols designed to define the way computers and other devices communicate with each other over a network.

IP address

Every host (workstation or node) on an IP network requires a unique IP address for each network interface. This address is a software address that is used to identify both the network and specific hosts that are located on that network. It is possible for a host to query a server for a dynamic IP address each time the device boots up (for example, using DHCP and BOOTP).
An IPv4 address contains four bytes of information, divided into sections that each contain one byte. The IP address has the following format:
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
note:
When assigning IP addresses, always consult the IP address administrator. Setting the wrong address can disable other equipment operating on the network or interfere with communications.

Configure IP parameters

IP configuration parameters can be configured manually, or they can be automatically downloaded by using DHCP or BOOTP each time the product is turned on.
When turned on, a new product that is unable to retrieve a valid IP address from the network automatically assigns itself a default IP address. On a small private network, a unique IP address in the range of 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255 is assigned. The IP address for the product is listed on the product Configuration page and the Network report. See Control-panel menus.

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)

DHCP allows a group of devices to use a set of IP addresses that are maintained by a DHCP server. The device sends a request to the server, and if an IP address is available, the server assigns it to that device.

BOOTP

BOOTP is a bootstrap protocol used to download configuration parameters and host information from a network server.
The client broadcasts a boot request packet that contains the product hardware address. The server answers with a boot reply packet that contains the information that the device needs for configuration.

Subnets

When an IP network address for a particular network class is assigned to an organization, no provision is made for more than one network being present at that location. Local network administrators use subnets to partition a network into several different subnetworks. Splitting a network into subnets can result in better performance and improved use of limited network address space.

Subnet mask

The subnet mask is a mechanism used to divide a single IP network into several different subnetworks. For a given network class, a portion of an IP address that would normally be used to identify a node is used, instead, to identify a subnetwork. A subnet mask is applied to each IP address to specify the portion used for subnetworks, and the portion used to identify the node.

Gateways

Gateways (routers) are used to connect networks together. Gateways are devices that act as translators between systems that do not use the same communication protocols, data formatting, structures, languages, or architectures. Gateways repackage the data packets and change the syntax to match that of the destination system. When networks are divided into subnets, gateways are required to connect one subnet to another.

Default gateway

The default gateway is the IP address of the gateway or router that moves packets between networks.
If multiple gateways or routers exist, then the default gateway is typically the address of the first, or nearest, gateway or router. If no gateways or routers exist, then the default gateway will typically assume the IP address of the network node (such as the workstation or product).
