HP Officejet 9100 All-in-One Series - Installing the Jetdirect Print Server Card

HP Officejet 9100 Series - Installing the Jetdirect print server card

The HP Jetdirect print server can be used to share the all-in-one across the network. This provides flexibility in identifying a suitable location for the all-in-one. The HP Jetdirect print server can be used in client-server as well as peer-to-peer network.

The HP Officejet 9120 all-in-one and the HP Officejet 9130 all-in-one are available with the HP Jetdirect 620n print server installed. For the HP Officejet 9110 all-in-one, a supported HP Jetdirect print server is required to connect it to a network and must be purchased separately. The choice of print server depends on the required functions, the type of network connection available, and the number of devices that will be connected to the print server.

The following table shows the print servers and their capabilities supported by the HP Officejet 9100 series.
