Hi folks,

got my hands one of these nifty cards (J2552A) to upgrade my LJ4.
Unfortunately, the firmware is *ancient* (A.03.03) and doesn't even
support a password for telnetting!!! Definitely needs an update.

So I grabbed HP's Web JetAdmin suite and the A.05.05 firmware for the
card. The actual update takes only a few seconds, then "completes" with
a failure, the log indicating a "syntax error". Weird. Whatever the
failure, it's not catastrophic as the card retains its old firmware and
is still usable (much to my surprise). Is the resident firmware too
old/dumb to even perform the update? Anyone run into this problem?

Regards,

unless otherwise proven, I'd assume an error from either your browser or
your network infrastructure. If I were you I'd setup a test machine with
JVM 1.42_03, IE6 without all those patches, don't use a proxy and try
again.

Good luck!
