Configure the network product

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 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.

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

Enhanced I/O (EIO) configuration

If you are adding a print server to a base model (HP Color LaserJet CP3505), 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.
