Affordable Connectivity for HP Printers

The H-260U is a high performance internal print server for connecting HP LaserJets and other printers that have an Enhanced I/O (EIO) slot to 10Base-T/100Base-T networks. The H-260U supports all popular network printing protocols, and it is compatible with the HP Web JetAdmin utility and SNMP for device control and management. It is ideal for handling the printing requirements of enterprise networks, but is also a cost-effective solution for SMB and SOHO networks.

The H-260U is uniquely designed to simultaneously connect two printers on the network, the HP EIO printer plus a USB-compatible printer. It is one of the first print servers to simultaneously support IPv6 and IPv4, ensuring that it will be compatible with current and future TCP/IP networks. The H-260U also supports advanced features such as access control using IP filtering to prevent unauthorized use of network printers. To improve network printer management, the H-260U can monitor the printer status for paper out or error conditions and send an E-mail message to you when such conditions occur. In addition, the H-260U can retrieve E-mail from the mail server and print it on the networked printer without requiring a PC.

The H-260U supports ThinPrint network printing technology as a firmware upgrade. Designed for server-based computing environments like Windows Terminal Services and Citrix MetaFrame, ThinPrint network printing technology provides bandwidth-optimized print solutions and print data compression technology that can work through firewalls and can operate efficiently even with very low bandwidth connections (please note that IPX/SPX and AppleTalk are not supported on H-260U ThinPrint models.

Other H-260U features include:

– Supports HP Web JetAdmin and SNMP-based management systems
– No additional cost to add a USB printer to your network
– IP Filtering allows the network administrator to control who may or may not access a network printer
– Extensive TCP/IP, Novell Netware, and AppleTalk network protocol support
