Hi Charles,

The HP JetDirect family typically listens for SNMP
communication broadcasts on its TCP port 9100. The
Axis uses 9900 according to IBM iSeries web site

You would therefore need to make sure SNMP support was
enabled in the HP JetDirect 300x via its web interface
and then set the port number to 9100 in the printer
device description on the IBM host.

I've used internal HP JetDirect interfaces with the
OS/400 SNMP driver and choosing port 9100 worked fine
with those type of internal print server cards.
