LDAP support for Laserjet M3027 MFP

Hi,

we bought a few of these units but too late did we realise that they didnt have LDAP support. Is there a way to upgrade them, via firmware perhaps, to get the LDAP functionality?

If not, has anyone ever attempted to update the fax/email address book via a script. It should be possible. After all the web interface offers an upload function so I suspect it should be possible.

Thanks.

Vic.

Vic,

Check out section 8 (page 109) of the 3027 User Guide:
http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00742673/c00742673.pdf

Post back if the answers to your questions are not provided by the documentation. You should be able to configure LDAP and SMTP with this model.

Thanks and good luck!

Re: LDAP support for Laserjet M3027 MFP

The manual only mentions LDAP with regards to the model M3035.

"The HP LaserJet M3027 MFP models support Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP). The HP LaserJet M3035 MFP models support SMTP and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)."

Besides, I cant find anywhere to enter LDAP information in the web interface.

For anyone else interested I've worked out how to update the addressbook from the command line. I used Linux and the curl utility. Make sure that the URLs are quoted as the shell may get confused.

Here are the steps:

1) Send the the csv file. Filename MUST end with csv!

#curl -L -u admin:password -F addressBookFileName=@AddressBooks.csv -F _import="  Import  " -F htxtRedirect="this.LCDispatcher?nav=hp.AddressBook" http://192.168.2.240/hp/device/this.uploadfile > out.html

2) Get the tmp file created by the MFP

#grep File_ out.html
var url = "this.LCDispatcher?nav=hp.AddressBook&format=xml&importFile=/hpmnt/webServer/tmp.uploadFile_1265716216093";

3) Unsure why this step is necessary but it seems to need it. Probably does the actual loading of the records. We use the tmp file from previous step.

#curl -L -u admin:password "http://192.168.2.240/hp/device/this.LCDispatcher?nav=hp.AddressBook&uploadFileService=1&uploadCount=..." > out1.html

4) Check the status of the upload.

#curl -L -u admin:password "http://192.168.2.240/hp/device/this.LCDispatcher?nav=hp.AddressBook&format=xml&importFile=/hpmnt/web..." > out2.html

#grep SUCCESS out2.html
SUCCESS

Thats all folks!
