  • Summary: Comments about HP Jetdirect 170x print server: HP discontinued this very efficient model and substituted a more-expensive model. [...]Only one in four pruchased had the factory seal intact, one box had the lid taped on, and one has an IP address inked on the box.... new?

Easy to use network print sharing

waga, Ciao

  • Excerpt: I got my 170x off ebay for the princely sum of £20 (tho no manual), and it was def worth it! I can now share this printer over the network without using a PC to share it with! It wasn't easy to set up initally, but after running DHCP on my linux box it was easy to configure over the web interface. If you do not have DHCP, you will need the HP network printer wizard app thingy to configure it via ipx/spx, or you will not bed able to access it.
  • Pros: connect any printer to the network,
  • Cons: Can;t really use with non - HP printers, not bi - drectional in that respect, cost (when buying new)

Ahora, cada uno en su red puede gozar de las ventajas de compartir una sola impresora. HP JetDirect 170X es una gran alternativa a compartir software-basado de la impresora. El HP JetDirect 170X elimina la necesidad de tener su impresora conectada con un ordenador huesped.
  • Pros: todo todo
  • Cons: nada nada
