Hewlett Packard's JetDirect print server allows you to make a printer available to an entire network simply by plugging an
Ethernet cable into the JetDirect device which then connects to the printer. All that's left is a little configuration.
Or so the marketing literature says. It's a little more complicated than that in the real world, where you have to know
all of the steps, and follow them in order. That said, once the entire process is laid out line by line, hooking up a
JetDirect print server is fairly straightforward.
