The printer drivers include online Help that has instructions for common printing tasks and also describes
the buttons, checkboxes, and drop-down lists that are in the printer driver.
NOTE: The PCL 5 and HP postscript level 3 emulation universal printer drivers that support this
product are versions of the HP Universal Print Driver (UPD) for Windows. They install and operate in
the same manner as previous versions of those drivers, and they do not require any special
configuration. For more information about the UPDs, see www.hp.com/go/upd.
HP Universal Print Driver (UPD)
The HP Universal Print Drivers (UPDs) for Windows are drivers that give you instant access to virtually
any HP LaserJet product, from any location, without downloading separate drivers. They are built on
proven HP print driver technology and have been tested thoroughly and used with many software
programs. They are powerful solutions that perform consistently over time. For this product, there are
two UPDs available:
● PCL 5 UPD
● HP postscript level 3 emulation UPD
An HP UPD communicates directly with each HP product, gathers configuration information, and then
customizes the user interface to show the product’s unique, available features. It automatically enables
features that are available for the product, such as two-sided printing and stapling, so you do not need
to enable them manually.
For more information, go to www.hp.com/go/upd.

TCP/IP
Similar to a common language that people use to communicate with each other, TCP/IP (Transmission
Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) is a suite of protocols designed to define the way computers and
other devices communicate with each other over a network.
IP address
Every device on an IP network requires a unique IP address. This address can be manually set by the
user or can be obtained automatically, depending on the available network services.
An IPv4 address contains four bytes of information, divided into sections that each contain one byte.
The IP address has the following format:
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
NOTE: When assigning IP addresses, always consult the IP address administrator. Setting the wrong
address can disable other equipment operating on the network or interfere with communications.
Configure IP parameters
IP configuration parameters can be configured manually, or they can be automatically downloaded by
using DHCP or BOOTP each time the product is turned on.
When turned on, a new product that is unable to retrieve a valid IP address from the network
automatically assigns itself a default IP address. On a small private network, a unique IP address in the
range of 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255 is assigned. The IP address for the product is listed on the
product configuration page and the network report. See Control-panel menus on page 9.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
DHCP allows a group of devices to use a set of IP addresses that are maintained by a DHCP server.
The product sends a request to the server, and if an IP address is available, the server assigns it to that
product.
BOOTP
BOOTP is a bootstrap protocol used to download configuration parameters and host information from
a network server.
The product broadcasts a boot request packet that contains the product hardware address. The server
answers with a boot reply packet that contains the information that the product needs for configuration.
Subnets
When an IP network address for a particular network class is assigned to an organization, no provision
is made for more than one network being present at that location. Local network administrators use
subnets to partition a network into several different subnetworks. Splitting a network into subnets can
result in better performance and improved use of limited network address space.
34 Chapter 5 Connectivity ENWW
Page: 46
Subnet mask
The subnet mask is a mechanism used to divide a single IP network into several different subnetworks.
For a given network class, a portion of an IP address that would normally be used to identify a node is
used, instead, to identify a subnetwork. A subnet mask is applied to each IP address to specify the
portion used for subnetworks, and the portion used to identify the node.
Gateways
Gateways (routers) are used to connect networks together. Gateways are devices that act as translators
between systems that do not use the same communication protocols, data formatting, structures,
languages, or architectures. Gateways repackage the data packets and change the syntax to match
that of the destination system. When networks are divided into subnets, gateways are required to
connect one subnet to another.
Default gateway
The default gateway is the IP address of the gateway or router that moves packets between networks.
If multiple gateways or routers exist, then the default gateway is typically the address of the first, or
nearest, gateway or router. If no gateways or routers exist, then the default gateway will typically assume
the IP address of the network node (such as the workstation or product).
IP address
