Re: configure dynamic ip for hp 4250 to a static IP

You could do it one of two ways:

1). Enter the IP address of the printer in yoru Browser to get into the Embedded Web Server (EWS) in the printer's JetDirect Card:

http:\\192.168.1.5

the above address is one that my Router would assign to a printer.
2). Then go to the configuration Tab and change the IP configuration from DHCP to Manual and change the last group of the IP address from wahtever is assigned to 50.
3). Click on applied and then you are done.

Anotehr way to do it is through the printer's Control Panel. As follow:

>>>
Procedure by Chris Emmanuel
To configure TCP/IP parameters from the control panel, use the following instructions:

Press the MENU button until HP MIO 1 (or 2), or HP EIO 1 (or 2) appears.

Press the ITEM button until CFG NETWORK = NO appears.

Press the PLUS or VALUE button until CFG NETWORK = YES appears.

NOTE: The CFG NETWORK = XXX (XXX being YES or NO) is a toggle, not a permanent setting. Changing it to YES allows the settings to be changed at that time. It will appear as CFG NETWORK = NO each time this menu is accessed.

Press SELECT or RESUME.

Press ITEM repeatedly until CFG TCP/IP = NO appears.

Press the PLUS or VALUE button until CFG TCP/IP = YES appears.

NOTE: The CFG TCP/IP = XXX (XXX being YES or NO) is a toggle, not a permanent setting. Changing it to YES allows the settings to be changed at that time. It will appear as CFG TCP/IP = NO each time this menu is accessed.

Press SELECT or RESUME.

Press the ITEM repeatedly until BOOTP = YES* appears.

Press the PLUS or VALUE button until BOOTP = NO appears.

NOTE: When using BootP or DHCP, keep the setting BOOTP = YES *. The BootP or DHCP server will configure the TCP/IP parameters on the HP Jetdirect. No other TCP/IP configuring is necessary.

Press SELECT or RESUME.

The following two steps apply to the HP Jetdirect 610n cards only:

DHCP=YES appears.

Press the PLUS or VALUE button until DHCP = NO appears.

NOTE: When using DHCP, keep the setting DHCP = YES *. The DHCP server will configure the TCP/IP parameters on the HP Jetdirect. No other TCP/IP configuring is necessary.

Press SELECT or RESUME.

Press ITEM until IP BYTE 1 = (value*) appears.

Press the PLUS or VALUE button, until the desired value of the first byte of the IP address appears. By pressing and holding the PLUS or VALUE button, the value will scroll rapidly (HP LaserJet 4000, 5000, and 8000 printers have a MINUS button to decrease the value).

Press SELECT or RESUME to save the value.

Press ITEM to continue. Repeat Steps 11-13 to configure the remaining bytes of the IP address.

Repeat Steps 11-13 to configure the subnet mask bytes (SM BYTE 1=), syslog server IP address (LG BYTE 1=), default gateway (GW BYTE 1=), and timeout (TIMEOUT=).

Press ONLINE, GO or MENU. Print a self-test page to verify the IP settings.

If the test page does not show the correct settings, power cycle the printer and reprint the test page.

Hope this helps....

Chris.

Re: configure dynamic ip for hp 4250 to a static IP

Go through the menu map and find the system settings, go to the network settings and make sure that DHCP is turned off, then go to TCP/IP configure and select configure and then allocate a static ip address and save.
You should then have the same address every time. Another way is to open a browser window with the ip address of the printer next time you turn it on and cofigure through there.
