J4101A
Features
  • Bi-directional parallel port (IEEE 1284)
  • Network port (Ethernet or Fast Ethernet) one RJ-45 for 10Base-T or 100Base-TX
  • Test button, which sends the print server configuration page
  • 6 light-emitting diodes (LEDs) located on the front: Alert, Power, Status, Activity, and Speed (10Base-T or 100Base-TX)
  • Two megabytes (MB) of upgradeable Flash memory, so firmware can be updated as needed
Supported printers
Most HP parallel-based peripherals and non-HP parallel-based printers are supported. However, there are some types of printers that are not supported:
  • Host-based (sometimes referred to as GDI printers). A printer that relies on the computer's processor to rasterize the print job. Most host-based printers use the GDI interface built into Windows (hence the "GDI printer" term), so there is no need to convert the data to PostScript, PCL, or other printer language.
  • PPA (Printing Performance Architecture). Like host-based printing, this architecture relies on the computer's processor. The software driver handles all formatting, such as color matching and correction, half-toning, edge enhancement, tone correction, and ink management.
Such printers include:
  • HP Deskjet 710c, HP Deskjet 712c
  • HP Deskjet 720c, HP Deskjet 722c
  • HP Deskjet 820cxi or 820cse printer,
  • HP Deskjet 1000c, HP Deskjet 1000cxi, HP Deskjet 1000cse
  • HP Photosmart Photo Printer
  • HP LaserJet 3100 product
The following printers are not supported on traditional networks. They are supported on home PNA networks using a Jetdirect Home PNA print server (which has since been discontinued).
  • HP Deskjet 930c, 932c, 935c
  • HP Deskjet 950c, 952c
  • HP Deskjet 810c, 812c
  • HP Deskjet 830c, 832c, 840c, 842c
  • HP Deskjet 880c, 882c
Performance information
The HP Jetdirect 300X OfficeConnect print server sends data to printers at speeds of up to 360 kilobytes (KB) per second, which is as fast or faster than many internal print servers.
Localized product options
The HP Jetdirect 300X OfficeConnect print server localized options include changes in the documentation, software, and power adapter.
