Overview and features
The easy-to-manage HP Jetdirect 250m print server/Internet connector help small businesses and small workgroups save money, flexibly place their printers, link to Internet printing e-services, and improve printing performance. Compatible with the newest HP printers, including the new HP color inkjet printers, HP Jetdirect 250m provides a simple and affordable method of printer sharing.

Maximize your investment - cost effectively share your HP LIO-compatible printers with multiple users over your network

Bottlenecks of parallel and USB printing are eliminated and printing performance is increased - users are linked to printers across the fast 10/100base T Ethernet/Fast Ethernet network with standard RJ-45 connectors

Efficiently manage your business printing process - get timely printer diagnostics and supply levels information over the Internet through HP Web Jetadmin and the embedded Web server

Upgradable HP Jetdirect 250m works with almost every network connecting today's workgroups and enables you to take advantage of future HP Jetdirect features

Quickly and easily add network capabilities and reconfigure office stations - gain the flexibility to place HP network printers with an LIO connectivity slot anywhere in the office and eliminate the need to have the printer directly connected to a powered-on PC

Experience versatile connectivity - utilize the HP Jetdirect 200m with an Apple or Microsoft 10/100Base-TX network

Extend your use of the Internet - turn your printer into an Internet communication device and receive a direct printing path for e-services and other distributed-printing services

Installation is simple - the modular design and intuitive installation software (HP install network printer wizard plus) make the HP Jetdirect 250m easy to install and use across a variety of network operating systems, including both Windows® and Apple® networks

Installation can be completely automated or advanced users can exercise total control over the installation and configuration process

Work with confidence - two indicator lights and test button assist users in setup, provide status information, and reflect the operation of the print server/Internet connector
