I have a plotter hooked up to an HP Jetdirect x print server which is then hooked up to my network. I can’t find the printer at all. I realize that the print server jedirect have a different IP but I don’t know how to look it up and change it.
ALso i’ve used the software that comes with the server to find the printer ketdirect that doesn’t work either, but if I connect a printer that already has internal networking capabilities thus i dont need the print server the software picks up trhe printer easily and it works fine.

I plugged in a printer that has 030x capabilites, thus not using the print server, and it worked fine. This all seems like jedirect much trouble lol. If I can’t figure it out i’ll probably just move the damn plotter next to my computer in another room cause I need it to work.
