2. XP: Open the Printers and Faxes folder (from the Desktop, click Start, Printers and Faxes).
3. Double-click Add Printer. From the Add Printer Wizard welcome screen, click Next.
4. Select Local printer, and disable automatic detection for Plug and Play printer installation. Click Next.
5. Choose Create a new port, and select LPR Port. Click Next.
6. In the Add LPR compatible printer window:
Enter the DNS name or IP address of the HP Jetdirect print server.
Enter (in lower case) raw, text, or auto for the name of the printer or print queue on the HP Jetdirect print server. (I used "auto" here)
Then click OK.
7. Select the Manufacturer and Printer model. (If necessary, click Have Disk and follow the instructions to install the printer driver.) Click Next.
8. Choose to keep the existing driver, if prompted. Click Next.
9. Enter a printer name, and choose whether this printer will be the default printer. Click Next.
10. Choose whether this printer will be available to other computers (via this PC). If shared, enter a share name that identifies the printer to other users. Click Next.
(If you choose to share via the PC, the PC would have to remain on for you to connect from your other computers, so I did not choose to share via the PC which is OK for a small network.)
11. If desired, enter a location and other information for this printer. Click Next.
12. Choose whether to print a test page, and click Next.
13 Click Finish to close the wizard.
