HP Jetdirect and Embedded Jetdirect Inside Print Servers - Using Telnet with HP Jetdirect Print Servers with Firmware Version x.24.xx or Newer

Introduction
This document describes how to configure an HP Jetdirect print server with firmware version x.24.xx or later by using Telnet. (Most of these commands still apply to older Jetdirect firmware version for thee models; however it is strongly recommended to upgrade the firmware. See the link below.)
To see a list of the commands available for any version of firmware, open the telnet connection to the Jetdirect (as described below), type a Question Mark (?) and press Return.
Printing a Configuration page
A Configuration page will have useful information, including the current TCP/IP address, a network statistics section showing the amount and types of packets the Jetdirect is sending and receiving, and either ready or error messages that indicate network communication status.
Print a Configuration page by using the front panel of the printer to go to the Information Menu or the Test menu and find the Print Configuration. Refer to the specific printer's manual for more instructions.
Example
  1. Press the ONLINE or GO button to take the printer OFFLINE.
  2. Press the MENU button until a Test Menu, PCL Test Menu, or Information Menu message appears in the display.
  3. Press the ITEM button until a Self Test, PCL Configuration Page, Print Configuration, or Print EIO Configurationmessage appears.
  4. Press SELECT or ENTER.
Using Telnet
  note:
For HP Jetdirect wireless print servers, this document assumes that a wireless connection to the network has been established.
Although a Telnet connection might be protected by an administrator password, Telnet connections are not secure. For networks with high security levels, Telnet connections can be disabled on the print server using other tools - for example, TFTP, the embedded Web server, or HP Web Jetadmin software.
The HP Jetdirect print server provides two interface options to enter Telnet commands:
Using a route add command
To use Telnet commands with an HP Jetdirect print server, a route must be available from the computer to the print server. This means that there must be a match between the system network identification and the HP Jetdirect print server. (For example, if the print server is configured with its default IP address, a route might not exist.)
On Windows®) systems, the following route command at a Command prompt can be used to add a route to the print server:
  • route add <HP Jetdirect IP address> <system IP address>
    Where <HP Jetdirect IP address> is the Internet Protocol (IP) address configured on the HP Jetdirect print server, and <system IP address> is the IP address of the computer card that is attached to the same physical local area network (LAN) as the print server.
    For example, to create a route from the network system to a factory-default print server, try this command:
  • route add 192.0.0.192 169.254.2.1
      note:
    Using Telnet to manually set an IP address overrides dynamic IP configuration - such as through BOOTP, DHCP, or RARP. This results in a static configuration, in which the IP values are fixed and the operation of BOOTP, DHCP, RARP and other dynamic configuration methods might no longer function. Whenever manually changing an IP address, reconfigure the subnet mask and default gateway at the same time.
Typical Telnet session
A typical Telnet session is illustrated and explained below.
Figure : Example of a typical Telnet session
To set configuration parameters, set up a Telnet session from the system to the HP Jetdirect print server.
  1. Type the following at the system prompt:
    telnet <IP address>
    where <IP address> can be the default IP address (192.0.0.192) or the assigned address of the Jetdirect. The IP address is printed on the HP Jetdirect configuration page.
    Use the printer control panel to print a configuration page (scroll to the Information menu or Test menu and find the option for printing the page). For external HP Jetdirect print servers and LIO HP Jetdirect print servers, press the test button on the top or the back of the print server.
  2. A connection to the HP Jetdirect print server is displayed. If the server responds with "connected to IP address," press ENTER twice to make sure that the Telnet connection is initialized.
  3. If prompted for a user name and/or password, enter them.
By default, the Telnet interface does not require a user name or password. If an administrator password has been set, a prompt appears for a user name and password before it is possible to enter and save Telnet command settings. The four valid usernames are: root, admin, administrator, or supervisor.
By default, a command-line interface is provided (see "Interface option: command-line interface (default)" below. To configure parameters using a menu interface, enter "menu" (click here to go to "User interface option: menu interface).
Using the command-line interface (default)
Use the following steps to set configuration parameters with the Telnet command-line interface.
  note:
At any time during a Telnet session, type a question mark and then press ENTER to view the configuration parameters, the correct command format, and the list of commands.
To list additional (or advanced) commands, type "advanced" before typing the question mark.
To display current configuration information, type a Forward Slash (/) and then press ENTER.
  1. At the Telnet prompt type the following syntax and then press ENTER.
    <parameter>: <value>
    <parameter> refers to the configuration parameter to be defined and <value> refers to the definitions to be assigned to that parameter. Press ENTER after each parameter entry. (Click here to go to the list of parameters.)
  2. Repeat the previous step to set any additional configuration parameters.
  3. When finished, type "save", "exit", or "quit" (depending on the system).
  4. When prompted whether to save settings that have been changed, type "Y" (default) for yes, or "N" for no.
Using Telnet to erase the existing IP address
To erase the IP address during a Telnet session, use the following command -line entries:
  1. Type "cold-reset" and then press ENTER.
  2. Type "quit" and then press ENTER to exit Telnet.
      note:
    This procedure resets all TCP/IP parameters, but affects only the TCP/IP parameter. After this has been done, turn the print server off and then turn it on. Parameters for other protocols such as IPX/SPX or AppleTalk are not affected.
    All protocols can be reset to factory default values. (Click here for information about performing a cold reset.)
Telnet commands and parameters
This section lists and describes the available Telnet commands and parameters. They are organized according to the following list.
  note:
If a parameter is supplied dynamically (for example, from a BOOTP or DHCP server), its value cannot be changed using Telnet without first setting manual configuration. To set manual configuration, see the description of the ip-config command.
Whenever manually changing an IP address, also reconfigure the subnet mask and default gateway at the same time.

  • Infrastructure: The print server communicates on the network with other wired or wireless devices through an Access Point.
  • Ad Hoc (default): The print server communicates with other wireless devices directly, without using an Access Point.
desired-ssid
Specifies the desired Service Set Identifier (SSID), or network name, for the print server. Up to 32 alphanumeric characters can be used.
The factory-default SSID is "hpsetup" in Ad Hoc mode. An Infrastructure network SSID of "hpsetup" should not be used.
If the ssid command is issued without an entry (a blank SSID), the desired SSID is assigned <AUTO>, where it associates with the first network that matches its authentication settings
encryption
Specifies the use of encryption.
  • 0 (default) disables encryption.
  • 1 enables encryption.
wep-key-method
Specifies the format for Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP) key entry. WEP key entries must be of the proper length.
  • ASCII (default): Use alphanumeric ASCII characters (0 to 9, a to z, and A to Z). For 40/64-bit encryption, type 5 characters. For 104/128-bit encryption, type 13 characters. ASCII entries are case-sensitive.
  • HEX: Use hexadecimal digits (0 to 9, a to f, and A to F). For 40/64-bit encryption, type 10 hexadecimal digits. For 104/128-bit encryption, type 26 hexadecimal digits. HEX entries are not case-sensitive.
wep-key
Specifies a static WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) encryption key. The print server can store up to four WEP keys using four key positions (key 1, 2, 3, and 4). To enter a WEP key, specify the key position followed by the encryption key value. For example,
wep-key 1 0123456789net
assigns key 1 a 128-bit WEP key specified by the value 0123456789net.
It is possible to use the wep-key-method command to specify the format of the key value (hexadecimal digits or alphanumeric ASCII characters). Alternatively, it is possible to insert an optional parameter (ASCII or HEX) after the key position. For example,
wep-key 1 ASCII 0123456789net
assigns key 1 a 128-bit WEP key specified by the alphanumeric ASCII characters 0123456789net.
When assigning static WEP keys, ensure that key positions and key values match other wireless devices on the network. Ensure that all key values entered are of the same length, and that WEP key lengths use the proper number of characters or digits.
transmit-key
Specifies the WEP key position (1, 2, 3, or 4) that the print server is to use for encrypted communications. For example,
transmit-key 2
specifies that key 2 is to be used for encrypted communications.

server-auth
Specifies a server-based authentication method for the print server before network access is allowed.
  • None (default): Server-based network authentication is not used.
  • EAP_MD5: An authentication method that uses 802.1x Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) and MD5 (Message-Digest Algorithm 5, RFC 1321). It requires that a user name and password be configured on the device. Use the svr-auth-user and svr-auth-pass commands to specify a user name and password, respectively. Dynamic encryption keys are also used.
  • EAP_TLS: An authentication method that uses 802.1x EAP-TLS (Extensible Authentication Protocol - Transport Layer Security, RFC 2716). It requires a user name and an installed X.509-compliant digital certificate for device validation. In addition, a Certificate Authority (Certificate Authority) certificate used to validate the authentication server must be installed. Use the svr-auth-user command to specify a user name. To install certificates, use the embedded Web server. Dynamic encryption keys are also used.
  • LEAP: An authentication method that uses Lightweight Extensible Authentication Protocol (LEAP). LEAP is a Cisco Systems, Inc. proprietary protocol. LEAP requires a user name and password. Use the svr-auth-user and svr-auth-pass commands to specify a user name and password, respectively. Dynamic encryption keys are also used.
  • PEAP: An authentication method that uses Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP). PEAP requires a user name and password for client validation. In addition, a CA certificate used to validate the authentication server must be installed. Use the svr-auth-user and svr-auth-pass commands to specify a user name and password, respectively. To install certificates, use the embedded Web server. Dynamic encryption keys are also used.
  • EAP_TTLS: An authentication method that uses Extensible Authentication-Tunneled Transport Layer Security (EAP-TTLS). EAP-TTLS is an EAP-TLS extension that also uses X.509-compliant digital certificates. TTLS requires a user name and password for client validation. In addition, a CA certificate used to validate the authentication server must be installed. Use the svr-auth-user and svr-auth-pass commands to specify a user name and password, respectively. To install certificates, use the embedded Web server. Dynamic encryption keys are also used.

trap-dest
Enters a host IP address into the HP Jetdirect print server SNMP trap destination list. The command format is: trap-dest: ip-address [community name] [port number] The default community name is "public"; the default SNMP port number is 162. The port number cannot be specified without a community name. To delete the table, use "trap-dest: 0". If the list is empty, the print server does not send SNMP traps. The number of trap destinations supported will vary depending on the Jetdirect model. The default SNMP Trap Destination List is empty. To receive SNMP traps, the systems listed on the SNMP trap destination list must have a trap daemon to listen to those traps.
