  3. You can setup "local printers" via a direct tcp port connection, not having
    to use netbios shares and logons. In XP or 2K, just select "new port"
    and "tcpip ..." and then give the ip address or hostname (should be
    resolvable via hostsfile or dns) of the printer box.
    You may then choose between "raw" (9100) and "lpr" (515) port.
    There is a free webjetadmin package available at the hp site or even on a cd
    supplied with the jetdirect box, for windows and linux, to manage networked
    printers through jetdirect. Or you can simply telnet to the box.

    Perhaps your teacher could set "how to use google" as a homework project

  6. Hi

    it allows a printer which only has a parallel port to be used as a network
    printer. The Jet direct box is configured with an IP address and converts
    the ethernet signal to parallel

    A jet direct box is the networking that wasn't in the printer. It takes
    the Network traffic, puts it into an LPT cable.

    But they are prone to all sorts of wierdass errors, which aren't
    consistent, spend an extra $50 and buy a printer with networking
