TCP/IP configuration tools

Depending on your all-in-one and operating system, the all-in-one can be configured with valid TCP/
IP parameters for your network in the following ways:

Using Software—You can use the HP ToolboxFX software, or you can use the all-in-one
Embedded Web server by entering the IP address in your Web browser.

BOOTP—You can download the data from a network-based server using BOOTP (Bootstrap
Protocol) each time the all-in-one is turned on. The BOOTP daemon, bootpd, must be running
on a BOOTP server that is accessible by the all-in-one.

DHCP—You can use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). This protocol is supported
in HP-UX, Solaris, Red Hat Linux, SuSE Linux, Windows NT/2000/XP, NetWare and Mac
systems. (Refer to your network operating system manuals to verify that your server operating
system supports DHCP.)


Linux and UNIX systems: For more information, see the BOOTPD man page. On HP-

UX systems, a sample DHCP configuration file (dhcptab) may be located in the /etc directory.
Since HP-UX presently does not provide Dynamic Domain Name Services (DDNS) for its
DHCP implementations, HP recommends that you set all lease durations to infinite. This
ensures that IP addresses remain static until such time as Dynamic Domain Name Services
are provided.
