HP LaserJet P3005 Series Printer - Network configuration

The information in this section applies only to models HP LaserJet P3005n, HP LaserJet P3005dn, and HP LaserJet P3005x.

You might need to configure certain network parameters on the printer. You can configure these parameters from the printer control panel, the embedded Web server, or for most networks, from the HP Web Jetadmin software.

For more information about using the embedded Web server, see Use the embedded Web server.

For a complete list of supported networks and for instructions on configuring network parameters from software, see the HP Jetdirect Embedded Print Server Administrator’s Guide. The guide comes with printers in which an HP Jetdirect embedded print server is installed.

    To cycle through the numbers more quickly, hold down the arrow button.
  12. Repeat steps 10 and 11 until the correct IP address is complete, and then press (SELECT) to save the setting.

  13. Press Menu to return to the Ready state.

  13. Press Menu to return to the Ready state.

Disable network protocols (optional)

By factory default, all supported network protocols are enabled. Disabling unused protocols has the following benefits:

  • Decreases printer-generated network traffic

  • Prevents unauthorized users from printing to the printer

  • Provides only pertinent information on the configuration page

  • Allows the printer control panel to display protocol-specific error and warning messages

Disable IPX/SPX

Do not disable this protocol in Windows-based systems that print to the printer through IPX/SPX.
  1. Press Menu.

  2. Press (DOWN) to highlight CONFIGURE DEVICE, and then press (SELECT).

  3. Press (DOWN) to highlight I/O, and then press (SELECT).

  4. Press (DOWN) to highlight EMBEDDED JETDIRECT, and then press (SELECT).

  5. Press (DOWN) to highlight IPX/SPX, and then press (SELECT).

  6. Press (SELECT) to select ENABLE.

  7. Press (DOWN) to highlight OFF, and then press (SELECT).

  8. Press Menu to return to the Ready state.

Disable AppleTalk

  1. Press Menu.

  2. Press (DOWN) to highlight CONFIGURE DEVICE, and then press (SELECT).

  3. Press (DOWN) to highlight I/O, and then press (SELECT).

  4. Press (DOWN) to highlight EMBEDDED JETDIRECT, and then press (SELECT).

  5. Press (DOWN) to highlight APPLETALK, and then press (SELECT).

  6. Press (SELECT) to select ENABLE.

Enhanced I/O (EIO) configuration

If you are adding a print server to the base model, additional printer memory might be required.

The enhanced input/output (EIO) slot holds compatible accessory devices, such as the HP Jetdirect print server network cards or other devices. Plugging an EIO network card into the slot increases the number of network interfaces available to the printer.

HP Jetdirect EIO print servers

HP Jetdirect print servers (network cards) can be installed in EIO slots. These cards support multiple network protocols and operating systems. HP Jetdirect print servers facilitate network management by allowing you to connect a printer directly to your network at any location. HP Jetdirect print servers also support the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), which provides network managers with remote printer management and troubleshooting through the HP Web Jetadmin software.

Configure the card either through the control panel, the printer installation software, or with HP Web Jetadmin software. Refer to the HP Jetdirect print server documentation for more information.
