*********************************************************************

A. UPDATE SUMMARY

HP JetAdmin for Windows 95/98 is used to install, configure, and 
Manage HP JetDirect-connected printers.  This version supports the 
latest printers and JetDirect Print Servers from HP and provides 
simplified software installation and printer configuration.  
Refer to Section C NEW FEATURES/FIXES for more details.

*********************************************************************

B. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

Windows 95/98 Systems

 - PC running Windows 95/98.
 - 6MB to unzip HP JetAdmin onto your hard drive.
 - 14MB to install HP JetAdmin onto your hard drive.
   (Additional space may be required depending on the number of HP
   JetDirect devices on the network.)
 - Direct Mode TCP/IP requires Client for Microsoft Networks and the
   Microsoft TCP/IP Protocol.
 - Direct Mode IPX/SPX requires Client for Microsoft Networks and
   Microsoft IPX/SPX-compatible Protocol.
 - Requires Microsoft Winsock DLL files.  Third Party Winsock files
   are not supported.
 - Novell NetWare is supported using the latest client software.  At 
   the time of this release, the IntranetWare Client for Windows 
   95/98, version 3.01, was the latest client available.  This 
   version is supported by HP JetAdmin 3.4, and is available from 
   Novell on the WEB at http://www.novell.com.
 - HP JetAdmin also supports the Microsoft Client for NetWare
   Networks under Windows 95/98.
 - HP JetAdmin does NOT support the Microsoft Service for NetWare
   Directory Services.


*********************************************************************

C. NEW FEATURES/FIXES

 - HP JetAdmin 3.4 supports Novell NetWare 5 and NetWare 4.2.
 - HP JetAdmin 3.4 supports the latest Novell client software 
   (currently version 3.01 for Windows 95/98).
-  Usability has been improved for creating NDS queues in a Novell 
   environment. Browsing queues now takes significantly less time.
-  Shared NetWare dll files are no longer installed automatically 
   to avoid conflicts with older versions.
-  In past versions of JetAdmin, the Everyone group was automatically 
   created when configuring JetDirect devices for bindery mode in a 
   Novell environment.  Now, this feature is selectable in 
   JetAdmin.  When creating a bindery queue, a box labeled ADD 
   EVERYONE TO LIST OF USERS can be de-selected if the desire is to 
   not have the Everyone group created automatically. 
-  Administrators can now de-configure file servers and their 
   corresponding print queues from the memory of the JetDirect device 
   through JetAdmin if the server is no longer available on the 
   network.  Previously, only print queues that existed on valid 
   file servers were selectable, and JetDirect devices would 
   endlessly search for objects they would never find. 

This version supersedes previous versions.

E. COMMON ISSUES

1.  Issue:     How do I set up my printer to print in Windows 95/98?

    Solution:  Run the Add HP JetDirect Printer wizard from the Start 
               Menu, Programs, HP JetAdmin Utilities.  Choose Easy
               Setup and follow the prompts on the screen. 

2.  Issue:     How do I print from DOS in Windows 95/98?

    Solution:  Run the Add HP JetDirect Printer wizard from the Start 
               Menu, Programs, HP JetAdmin Utilities. Custom Setup 
               must be selected.  When prompted for a port name, 
               enter an unused LPT port name, such as LPT2 or LPT3. 
         
        NOTE:  The port created will be a virtual port. DO NOT enter
               the name of a physical port on your system, such as 
               LPT1.  Also, Microsoft has limitations on which LPT 
               ports are allowed. LPT5-LPT9 are not reserved names, 
               and have been found to not work for DOS printing 
               during testing. 


3.  Issue:     How do I remove ports created by HP JetAdmin?

    Solution A: 1. Click on Start, Settings, Printers. Right click 
                   on a printer icon in the Printers screen.
                2. Click on Properties.
                3. Click on the Details tab.
                4. Click on Delete Port.
                5. Select the HP JetDirect port to be deleted.
                6. Click on OK.
                7. Repeat this process to delete additional HP 
                   JetDirect ports.

        Note:  You cannot delete an HP JetDirect port if it is in 
               use.  If the "Print to the following port:" line shows
               an HP JetDirect port, the printer must be reassigned
               to use another port (such as LPT1) before that HP 
               JetDirect port can be deleted.


4.  Issue:     How do I uninstall HP JetAdmin?

    Solution:  If the desire is to remove JetAdmin completely,
               including all HP JetDirect Ports which have been 
               created, then remove the ports manually prior to 
               uninstalling JetAdmin itself.  Refer to the issue 
               above for removing the ports.
                
               Otherwise, to remove the JetAdmin software while  
               keeping the HP JetDirect Ports intact, select the 
               "Uninstall HP JetAdmin Utilities" icon created under 
               the HP JetAdmin Utilities group, and follow the 
               instructions. 

        NOTE:  If prompted to delete shared .DLL files, it is best 
               not to remove these files.  The Uninstall software 
               cannot determine if these common files are used by 
               other applications.


5.  Issue:     Cannot install new version of HP JetAdmin because 
               Windows 95/98 claims an older version of HP JetAdmin 
               is still installed.



   Solution 1: For HP JetAdmin 2.3x or newer, use the included 
               HP JetAdmin Uninstall utility to remove HP JetAdmin.

    
   Solution 2: For HP JetAdmin 2.2x or older, remove the JetAdmin 
               service located in Control Panel's Network icon.


6.  Issue:     HP JetAdmin does not run properly with the Novell 
               client found on the Windows 95 disk(s).

    Solution:  Download the latest client software from Novell at
               http://www.novell.com


7.  Issue:     How do I configure an HP JetDirect print server for 
               Queue Server Mode under NDS?

    Solution:  This information is available in the HP JetAdmin 
               online Help.  Select Help, Help Topics, Novell NetWare
               Configuration, and Configuring a device in NDS.



8.  Issue:     Why do I have to log into a specific file server to
               complete an NDS configuration?

    Solution:  When performing an NDS configuration, a queue is 
               created on a specific file server volume.  HP JetAdmin
               performs a server-based permissions check prior to 
               creating the queue on a file server.


9.  Issue:     I am unable to manage NDS queues from within HP 
               JetAdmin.

    Solution:  HP JetAdmin displays job information for bindery 
               queues only.  Use PCONSOLE or NW Admin to manage NDS
               queues.


10. Issue:     HP JetDirect print servers are not showing up in the 
               list of configured or unconfigured devices.

    Solution:  Select Update Database and refresh (F5) or Rebuild 
               Database and Refresh (F7) from the Device Refresh 
               menu in HP JetAdmin.  
   
               The discovery options for TCP/IP and IPX/SPX can be 
               configured by selecting Options, Preferences from 
               within HP JetAdmin.  Consult the online help for a 
               detailed explanation of the available discovery 
               options.

               On large networks, it may be necessary to refresh
               more than once.  


11. Issue:     When searching for specific addresses under the 
               IPX/SPX Discovery Tab, why would a user want to select
               where these addresses are stored?

    Solution:  This feature gives more flexibility to the 
               Administrator to manage discovery databases. Select 
               Help on this screen for a detailed explanation
               of each option.


12. Issue:     When performing a subnet ping search of an IP subnet,
               devices are not displayed in the list of configured or
               unconfigured printers.

    Solution:  A subnet ping requires more time to complete than a
               local broadcast search.  While the search is in 
               progress the discovery indicator is displayed on the 
               taskbar.  When discovery has completed, press F6 to 
               display all discovered devices in the HP JetAdmin main 
               screen.  F6 is designed to display all devices which 
               responded to the discovery query after the initial 
               screen displayed discovered devices.


13. Issue:     A device named "NPIXXXXXX" appears in the configured
               printers list, where the X's may actually be X's or 
               just placeholders for other hexadecimal numbers.

    Solution:  "NPIXXXXXX" is either an artificial name or the 
               default name for a device on the network. Under normal 
               conditions this name is replaced by the real name of 
               the device.

               Sometimes this name remains in the printer list if the
               real name could not be discovered.

               HP JetAdmin can fail to discover the real name of the
               device if:

               A.  The card has been reset but the printer has not 
                   yet been power cycled.

               B.  In a NetWare environment, an entry has been 
                   created in a Jetset.ini file (of the form: 
                   NODE=NetworkNumber.NodeAddress) and HP 
                   JetAdmin cannot communicate with the device.  
                   This could be because the device is no longer on 
                   the network or because of network communication 
                   problems.  Jetset.ini places this entry in the 
                   discovery list to indicate that it tried to 
                   discover the device but could not.  Subsequent 
                   discoveries using Jetset.ini will erase the entry.

               C.  The device fails to respond because it is too old 
                   to reply to certain requests.

               D.  Network traffic is so heavy we do not have 
                   reliable communication.


14. Issue:     Are third-party versions of winsock.dll supported?

    Solution:  Hewlett-Packard has tested only the Microsoft
               winsock.dll.  Other winsock.dll files have not been
               tested, and therefore are not supported with
               HP JetAdmin.


15. Issue:     HP JetAdmin does not display a recently reset HP 
               JetDirect card correctly as Unconfigured.

    Solution:  Reboot the printer or HP JetDirect EX Print Server.  
               Press F7 from within HP JetAdmin to rebuild the 
               database and rediscover the printers on the network.
               HP JetAdmin should then properly display the new 
               settings.


16. Issue:     HP JetAdmin has been removed but the printer ports 
               still remain.

    Solution:  HP JetDirect Ports will not be removed by running 
               the Uninstall Shield included with JetAdmin versions 
               2.33 and greater.  The port monitor software is 
               removed using this technique. However, the port 
               monitor appears to be active until all the HP 
               JetDirect Ports are removed.  Refer to the issue 
               above titled "How do I remove ports created by HP 
               JetAdmin?"



17. Issue:     I entered a specific IP address in the hpjaptrs.txt 
               file for File-Based IP discovery.  How do I remove it?

    Solution:  Open the \windows\system\hpjaptrs.txt file with 
               Notepad and delete the entry.


18. Issue:     I am using a PC with 2 network cards, but I am only 
               able to discover printers on one network segment.

    Solution:  By default, HP JetAdmin treats the primary network 
               interface as the local subnet, and the secondary NIC 
               as a remote subnet.  To enable a remote subnet search,
               select Options, Preferences, TCP/IP Discovery, 
               Advanced and enter the IP address of the secondary NIC
               as the remote subnet address.


19. Issue:     I used Easy Setup to configure my printer, but it only
               asked me for the IP address.  Was a subnet mask 
               assigned?

    Solution:  If Easy Setup is used, the subnet mask and default 
               gateway from the computer are assigned to the printer. 

        NOTE:  On computers with multiple network cards it is 
               recommended that Custom Setup be used, giving the user
               the option to manually assign the subnet mask and
               default gateway.  


20. Issue:     Can I print to an HP JetDirect port using Direct Mode
               IPX if I have a NetWare client loaded?

    Solution:  Printing to an HP JetDirect port using Direct Mode IPX
               while having a NetWare client loaded is supported as 
               long as the following conditions are met:

               A) You cannot be logged into a NetWare file server.

               B) You cannot be running a NetWare login script.

               Since the Microsoft Client for NetWare is installed in
               Windows 95 by default when the IPX stack for 
               networking is installed, it makes sense that support
               will be provided for Direct Mode IPX printing when
               the NetWare client is installed but is not in use to 
               connect to a NetWare server.

               However, there is an implied intent that printing will
               occur through a NetWare queue if a NetWare client
               is installed AND the client is logged into a NetWare 
               server.  Hewlett-Packard does not wish to compete or 
               interfere with NetWare printing, and therefore, support 
               for Direct Mode IPX printing is not available when 
               logged into a NetWare server.

               Alternative: If you must print through an HP JetDirect 
               port while logged into a Netware server, configure
               the HP JetDirect Port for TCP/IP instead of IPX/SPX.

21. Issue:     Why does a "paper airplane" icon appear on my taskbar 
               periodically?

    Solution:  The paper airplane appears on the taskbar whenever a
               TCP/IP discovery is taking place. A TCP/IP discovery 
               can be launched by either the HPJetAdmin program itself,
               the HP JetAdmin Port Monitor, or the HP Print Provider.

22. Issue:     Why is a process titled "HPJETDSC.EXE" always running
               when I look in Task Manager?

    Solution:  HPJETDSC.EXE is the file necessary for the HP JetAdmin 
               Discovery Indicator (paper airplane in the taskbar).
               It gets launched automatically through the registry, 
               and remains active to control the Discovery Indicator.

23. Issue:     What is the functionality of the box labeled ADD 
               EVERYONE TO LIST OF USERS when creating queues?

    Solution:  In past versions of JetAdmin, the Everyone group was 
               automatically created when configuring JetDirect 
               devices for bindery mode in a Novell environment.  
               Now, this feature is selectable in JetAdmin.  
               When creating a bindery queue, a box labeled ADD 
               EVERYONE TO LIST OF USERS can be de-selected if the 
               desire is to not have the Everyone group created 
               automatically.
