Network Installation

The software on the HP LaserJet 2200 CD supports network
installation with Novell NetWare 3.2, 4.x, and 5.x or a Microsoft
network (except Windows 3.1x). For network installation on other
operating systems, go to http://www.hp.com/support/net_printing.


The HP JetDirect print server included with the HP LaserJet 2200dn
or 2200dtn printer has a 10/100 Base-TX network port. If you need
an HP JetDirect print server with another type of network port, see
Accessories and Ordering Information, or contact your local HP dealer.

Before You Install the Printer Software


To make sure that the HP JetDirect print server is configured
correctly for the network, print the self test/configuration pages
(when the printer’s Ready light is on, press and release the Go
and Job Cancel buttons simultaneously). On the second page
look for “Hardware Address” followed by a 12-digit number. You
may need this hardware address number to complete network
installation. (If the self test/configuration pages print in English,
look for “Hardware Address” followed by a 12-digit number. The
pages should print in the correct language for your printer after
you complete the printer software installation. If the pages do not
print in the correct language after the software is installed, see
Printing Special Pages.)


If you are installing the software on Windows NT 4.0, Windows
2000, or Novell NetWare, make sure you have administrator

Windows installation will walk you through the following:


Connecting your printer to a Novell NetWare server. (Answer Yes
when prompted from the Novell Server Detected screen.)


Connecting your printer to a networked Windows print server.
(Follow the “Client Setup” path from the Network Setup screen.)


Connecting your printer directly to the network without going
through a print server. (Follow the “Server or Peer to Peer”
path from the Network Setup screen.)


Connecting your printer to a network, when you are not sure
which method is right for you. (Follow the “Help me to determine
which setup is right for me” path from the Network Setup screen.)

(If nothing prints or if the test page does not print correctly,
see the Troubleshooting Checklist.)

Networking the Printer using Windows Sharing

If the printer is directly connected to a computer using a parallel
cable, you can share the printer on the network so other network
users can print to it.

See your Windows documentation to enable Windows sharing. Once
the printer is shared, install the printer software on all computers that
need to share the printer.


Network computers running Windows 3.1x can access the shared
printer, but the computer directly connected to the printer must be
running Windows 9x, NT 4.0, 2000, or Millennium.
