HP LaserJet 2400 Series Printers - The Embedded Jetdirect Print Server Model Numbers ___________________________________________________ In this document: Several new model numbers will appear on an HP Jetdirect Configuration page - J7957A, J79578A, J7949E, and J7959A. These are model numbers for printers with HP Jetdirect embedded or integrated into the printer's formatter. This is sometimes referred to as embedded networking, embedded LAN, or Jetdirect Inside (JDI). Although these refer to an HP Jetdirect product number, the printers will have their own product numbers and options that the customer will see. The Jetdirect product number is only for identifying the product for ease of management. The Jetdirect product numbers are not available for purchase since they are integrated. The printers and related Jetdirect model numbers include: Printer Jetdirect HP Color LaserJet 2550 series J7957A 10/100 (Value Line) HP LaserJet 1320n J7957A 10/100 (Value Line) HP LaserJet 1320nw J7957A 10/100 (Value Line) HP LaserJet 2400 Series J7949E 10/100 (Full Feature) HP LaserJet 4250 Series J7949E 10/100 (Full Feature) HP LaserJet 4350 Series J7949E 10/100 (Full Feature) HP LaserJet 9050 Series J7949E 10/100 (Full Feature) Installation Basic network installation process stays the same utilizing the Install Network Printer Wizard SDK (Use the Printer’s installation CD) Behavior From a protocol perspective, the embedded print server should behave exactly like an HP Jetdirect EIO card.
