NETWORKING NOT ENABLED

By rhonneil ·
Upon installing my new HP JetDirect printer Server on our NT Server the following error occured:

NETWORKING NOT ENABLED ON COMPUTER. UNABLE TO INSTALL NETWORK PRINTER WITHOUT NETWORKING ENABLED ON COMPUTER. TCP/IP AND /OR IPX STACKS MUST BE ENABLED.

What should I do to enable the networking and install my printer? While the network is actually running.

It sounds as if the network is running NetBEUI only. Right click on the network neighborhood and left click on properties. Once in the properties go under the protocol tab and make sure that at the very least TCP/IP is installed. If it is, make sure that the network card and TCP/IP are binded together. If it is then check that the server has a valid IP address that you can ping from another PC. If you are not running Novell then don't install IPX. It will only create more overhead on yournetwork. If this still doesn't work then try uninstalling TCP/IP, rebooting, and then reinstalling TCP/IP.

HP JetDirect printing requires either TCP/IP or IPX/SPX to be running on the network. Apparently, you aren't running either of these protocols, so I can only assume that your network is running on NetBEUI only. You will need to install TCP/IP on your server at least in order to use the HP printer as a network printer. This cannot be done without rebooting your server, so you would have to have the network down for a least a short time while you do that. Hope this helps!
