If I under the specs of the above two printer properly, both are
2070N: PCL6, IBM Proprinter, Epson FX
5250DN: PCL6, BR-Script3, IBM Proprinter, Epson FX
and these are the ports that they have:
2070N: 10/100 Base-TX Ethernet, Parallel, USB
5250DN: 10/100 Base-TX Ethernet, Parallel, Hi-Speed USB 2.0
I was actually looking just for the 10/100 ethernet ports to connect the
printer to a switch on the little office network that we have there. How
does this relate to HP JetDirect ethernet interface? And, er, what is HP
JetDirect and wouldn't it exist only in HP printers?
