Chris, what OS are you using with the JDEX? The manual mentions IP address only with UNIX. Run hpnpcfg to create the BOOTP configuration files, specifying the IP address. The configuration info is downloaded from BOOTP each time the JDEX is powered on.

I've tried a number of different lengths of time in holding the test
button. Its possible that it is in fact resetting, but I see no visual
indication of it, so I can't tell.

If it is resetting, it still isn't taking a BootP assigned IP, and is
erroring out when I connect it to the network. If it was one unit, I
would assume its broken... but two units doing the exact same thing, I
think I am doing something wrong, and I hope a manual may tell me what
that is.
