    Hp laserjet 2100tn via ethernet

    Yeah, all etherent connections via built in/add-on Nubus ethernet card my JetDirect card works as expected for printing from my linux box/Windows machines. But for the few powermac (9600/8100) I've tried, the hp printer program couldn't see the laserjet and thus not allowed me to create the PPD file. So nothing to pick in the Chooser windows Appletalk is set via its control panel to be active via the ethernet port before the driver installation. And LaserWriter 8 extension has been loaded 1.The messagbox reminding me to launch the HP printer utility to create the PPD after the driver installation 2. Empty Appletalk zone *, no laserjet I have tried direct connection via the localtalk port to the laserjet and I remembered i can see the laserjet in the HP printing utility program to create the PPD file, which allowed me to pick the Laser 2100 via the Chooser

    Almost forget there is a web interface, thanks But the configuration page stated clearly Appletalk is ready... X(

    Thanks for your advice. But the 2100tn was a postscript printer and it did support Appletalk. It has its own mac serial/localtalk port apart from the parallel port and the slot for the Jetdirect cart. My 620n Jetdirect card has only one single RJ-45 ethernet and it functioned as expected, printing from Windows / linux machines on the network. In fact the configuration page from the printer has clearly stated the Appletalk network was ready and indicated the printer IP address assigned

    Hp laserjet 2100tn via ethernet

    I recently got the laserjet for cheap to satisfy all my vintage printing needs. It worked perfectly for my windows 3.1/95 machines ( via the parallel port/ the installed Jetdirect 620n ethernet card) ,my OS 8/9 vintage mac ( via the localtalk/serial port) and even by Linux mint PC (via the ethernet port) However while I can print from those windows machines when the laserjet was connected to my home network via the ethernet port, those OS 8/9 macs could never see the printer. I have installed the mac driver from hp https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-laserjet-2100-printer-series/25469 After driver installation, I followed the instruction and try to create the PPD file for the printer with the hp printer utility but it couldn't see any printer connected via Appletalk even though I had make sure the Apple laserwriter 8 extension was there and the Appletalk set to be active over the mac ethernet port through the Appletalk control panel After some googling, I tried to set the laserjet as an IP printer with OS 9's desktop printing utility. But it still didn't work after entering the IP address of the printer. Though I can print with direct connection, I very much hope I can make it work as the ultimate vintage network printer for my home network

    9600 604ev@500MHz

    That's interesting those resistors in my card suggested 300MHz (R13,R20,R22,R19) though it's running at 500MHz Is there is a short made across the R14 & R11 terminals? Too small, can't see clearly with my naked eyes

    got mine at less than 1/5 of what he is asking for I remembered the seller had another 8600/"200" selling at that time

    More photo Memory doesn't serve me very well, the CPU label did indicate the speed, it started life as a 300mHz, overclocked to 500 and finally bricked The motherboard doesn't look like a normal kansas board, some missing rom chips? can anyone here shed some light? newly added brand new EDO RAM Sticker on the cdrom others

    Hi, powerbase Is that something I can set within MacBench?

    Thanks you for your kind words I thought I was doomed when I found someone hand-written "Fired" over the engineering sample label on the daughter card. It booted up just fine after installing a new PRAM battery but kept on freezing every now and then. Before I was prepared to buy another "normal" mach V CPU to replace this overclocked one, my "new" 168pin DIMM arrived. After installing those RAM, surprisingly it ran rock solid and never hanged again. Maybe the better spec newer RAM help stabilize the overclocked CPU BTW I remembered there was a [LAB A] label somewhere inside the case. Probably it is a test machine of some sort ... it has its ROM DIMM slot occupied and even the CDROM had an engineering sample label on it I'll try taking some more photo of the motherboard in the new couple of days

    Not the latest found actually, Grabbed this unusual beast from eBay last year The seller apparently was not very familiar with the vintage mac and he sold a lot of other vintage pc as well From the pictures shown on eBay a 9600 PM labelled as 200Mhz but... the motherbroad from the picture was clearly a Kansas one I was expecting at least a 350mHz 604ev I didn't ask further as the price was right and it looked pretty clean inside. On arrival, I opened the case and found the CPU daughter card labelled as engineering sample with no mention of the actual speed. It freezed every now and then but ran rock solid once I added "new" ram to it few months ago
