I picked up a HP Jetdirect EX at a State auction. I thought I would network my printer on the cheap ($0.99). Well after several days of research I found I need Bootp to make it work.

1) What is Bootp ?
2) How does it work ?
3) Is it worth the effort ?

I am using a cable modem & router (DHCP). I have one print server already I wanted to use this one to connect a dot matrix printer for mailing labels. Am I better off ditching this and getting a more modern one. I don't mind the challenge.


Thanks in advance for all advice Acklan
