Assigning an IP Address
Assigning an IP Address
Before you can begin working with 10/100 Internal PS, you must get or assign an IP address
for the 10/100 Internal PS device.
There are four different ways to assign an IP address. Here is a list and a brief description of
each method:
• Web View — Browser-enabled method to assign an IP address.
• ZebraNet View — Utility that remotely manages ZebraLink-enabled printers.
• DHCP — See your LAN administrator for more information.
• Telnet — DOS command to assign an IP address.
Important • Throughout the procedures in this chapter, there are some features that require the
default User ID and/or default password. If you are prompted, these are the defaults:
• User ID: admin
• Password: 1234
With Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
If your network uses DHCP, your 10/100 Internal PS device is assigned a temporary IP
address.
Note • Check with your Network Administrator to see whether your network uses DHCP.
Without DHCP
If your network does not use a dynamic IP addressing system (such as DHCP), you need to set
a permanent IP address for the 10/100 Internal PS device. ZebraNet View is the
Windows-based print server management and configuration utility that comes with your
10/100 Internal PS.
Important • The remaining sections are dependent on the successful installation of ZebraNet
Utilities. To install, see ZebraNet Utilities on page 42.

Assigning an IP Address
Assigning an IP Address via a Telnet Session
The methods used for assigning an IP address with a Telnet session are Static Route and
Gleaning.
Important • This applies to any TCP/IP-capable workstation/host networked with the Zebra
printer. Both, the workstation/host and the 10/100 Internal PS, must be on the same network
segment.
Before you can Telnet to the 10/100 Internal PS and configure it, you must first assign the
10/100 Internal PS a temporary IP address.
Static Route
To use this method, complete these steps:
1. Turn on (I) the printer and wait for 2 minutes to allow for the device to complete the
self-test.
During this time, the 10/100 Internal PS performs an address broadcast. If no address is
assigned to the unit (via DHCP or BOOTP), it uses a default address. The default address
for 10/100 Internal PS is 192.168.254.254. Print the 10/100 Internal PS
configuration label to confirm the address. For details, see Before You Begin on page 22.
2. You can use the route add command to place the default IP address into the
workstation's network routing table.
Example • In the next step, **** is the IP address on the 10/100 Internal PS
configuration label.
3. At the workstation/host command prompt (in Windows, at the DOS prompt), type:
route add **** "IP address of the workstation" 0
Note • The zero (0) placed at the end of the “route add” command is optional on some
systems.
4. Telnet to the 10/100 Internal PS by typing:
"Telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"
The password is 1234.
5. At this point, you can alter the settings as desired. When complete, do a reset and allow
the 10/100 Internal PS self-test to complete before proceeding with any communications
activity.

10/100 Internal Print Server User Guide
11/12/2009
Getting Started
Assigning an IP Address
Gleaning
A method by which the 10/100 Internal PS uses the IP address of the first ping packet that is
sent to its hardware address.
Note • Gleaning works only on local subnets at routers. It does not pass Address Resolution
Protocol (ARP) broadcasts.
To use this method, complete these steps:
1. Add an entry to the ARP table that assigns an IP address to an Ethernet (hardware)
address.
The syntax for this command is:
arp -s "temporary ipaddress of print server" "MAC Address
(print server hardware address)" arp -s <temporary ip
address> <MAC Address>
Example • You would type:
arp -s 10.3.50.59 00-07-4d-68-1D-B9-86
2. Power cycle the printer.
3. As the printer reboots, begin a continuous ping to the address assigned previously.
Note • Most UNIX systems use a continuous ping.
To use a continuous ping from a Windows host, you must issue the command:
ping -t "ipaddress".
4. When the 10/100 Internal PS begins to respond, stop the ping activity.
In Windows, Ctrl + C halts the pinging.
5. Telnet to the 10/100 Internal PS and assign the appropriate IP address, subnet mask, and
gateway, if applicable.
6. Once this is complete, reset the 10/100 Internal PS.

ZebraNet Alert Using SNMP
You can send notifications over SNMP only, for use with ZebraNet Alert or a similar network
management utility.
To configure the 10/100 Internal PS to send alerts across a TCP/IP Network
using ZebraNet Alert, complete these steps:
Important • If you did not install ZebraNet Alert during the ZebraNet Utilities installation, see
ZebraNet Utilities on page 42.
1. From the task bar, select Start > Programs > ZebraNet Utilities > ZebraNet View.
2. Select the printer you want.
If...
Then...
A DHCP server is
present

You may need to assign the printer an IP address.
3. To assign your printer an IP address, from the menu bar, select Print Server >
Configuration.
4. For PrintServer SNMP Traps, select the SNMP Traps tab.
5. Enter the trap destination and options.
This tells the 10/100 Internal PS what TCP/IP address to send the alerts to, and under what
circumstances to send error and log reports. Entering 255.255.255.255 broadcasts the
message to every host on the network with an SNMP program running.

ZebraNet Connect IP
ZebraNet Connect IP
ZebraNet Connect IP allows you to send jobs to print servers that use Dynamic IP addresses
(DHCP). It also notifies you of printer errors, such as paper out or head open. When
print jobs are printed through ZebraNet Connect IP, they are sent directly to 10/100 Internal PS
and are not routed through a network server, resulting in a reduction of network traffic.
Note • The DHCP feature of ZebraNet Connect IP can rediscover a 10/100 Internal PS on the
local subnet, even when its IP address might be changing (for example, when using DHCP for
IP address resolution). The 10/100 Internal PS is relocated by its port name as configured
through ZebraNet View (the default name is Serial Number-Port Number). This feature is
enabled on the local subnet only. A non-local 10/100 Internal PS device is not rediscovered if
the IP address changes.
Setting up a ZebraNet Connect IP
If you have printing problems while using the ZebraNet Connect IP printing port, you may
check the status of the port or change its settings through the printer Properties dialog.
• For Windows 95/98, select Port Settings under the Details tab.
• For Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000, select Configure Port under the Ports tab.
Windows NT 4.0/Windows 2000
If you are using the Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000 operating system, use the following
procedure to set up a printer port for the 10/100 Internal PS.
To set up a printer port for the 10/100 Internal PS, complete these steps:
1. From the task bar, select Start > Settings > Printers.
2. Select the Windows printer to use when printing with the 10/100 Internal PS.
3. From the menu bar, select File > Properties.
4. To add a ZebraNet Connect IP port, in the Ports tab select Add Port.

ZebraNet View Utility Discovery or Configuration Problems
If you are having problems using the ZebraNet View utility to discover or configure the unit,
check the following:
• Verify there is not a router between the workstation running ZebraNet View and the
10/100 Internal PS. Because the 10/100 Internal PS does not have an IP address, TCP/IP
communication cannot be started across a router. Run ZebraNet View on the same subnet
as the 10/100 Internal PS.
• Verify that the LED on the 10/100 Internal PS is active. Consult the chart above for
details.
Unable to Print
If you are having problems printing, verify that there is communication between the
10/100 Internal PS and the printer. Suggestions include the following:
• Ping the printer to determine the ability to communicate with the printer. See Ping the
Printer.
• Or open a Telnet session and send a ZPL command to print a configuration label. See
Telnet on page 111 for more information.
• Check obvious error conditions such as head open, out of media, out of ribbon, etc.
• If problems persist, contact Technical Support.

Telnet
Open a telnet session to send a ZPL command from a DOS prompt. This procedure can be
used when running Vx.15.x or later firmware. In this example, a ZPL II command is used to
cause a label to print.
Note • You do not need to open a telnet session if you pinged the printer using the previous
procedure. The purpose of these two procedures is to identify whether your PC can
communicate with your printer.
To open a telnet session on your PC, complete these steps:
1. Open a DOS window.
To open a DOS window, click on Start > Run.
2. In the Open text box, type: cmd
3. From the DOS prompt, type:
telnet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 9100
where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of the print server.
This will connect your PC to the 10/100 Internal PS through the parallel port of the printer.
4. Enter ~WC.
This ZPL command will print a configuration label on your printer.
5. Click the X in the upper right-hand corner of the window to exit.
If the configuration label prints, the issue is not a communication problem between the printer,
the print server, or the PC.
Unable to Configure Device
To assign an IP address to a ZebraNet 10/100 Internal PS using ZebraNet View, you must be
on the same subnet. If ZebraNet View has Multicast enabled, you may be able to view the
ZebraNet 10/100 Internal PS on another subnet, but you will not be able to configure the
device.

FTP
Embedded within the 10/100 Internal PS is an FTP server application that processes file
transfers from a host computer to the printer.
If the printer is on a network, label formats can be generated and data can be transferred
without setting up a print queue.
To send information to the printer in a Windows environment, try this exercise:
1. In a text editor, generate the following ZPL II code:
^XA
^FO100,100
^CF0,55^FDZebra Technologies^FS
^XZ
2. Save the file and name it test.txt.
3. Open the MS-DOS Command Prompt and type:
ftp <IP of 10/100 PS>
Example • If the IP address of your 10/100 Internal PS device is 12.3.4.123, you
would type:
ftp 12.3.4.123
This opens a session with the FTP server.
Note • The default user name is blank.
4. Type your user name and press Enter.
5. Type:
put test.txt
This transfers test.txt to the printer, and the printer generates a label.
6. To terminate the FTP session, type:

Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD)-Style Print Queue
Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD)-Style Print Queue
BSD is a version of the UNIX OS that includes TCP/IP.
Configuring the Print Queue
For remote BSD-style LPD printing, add the 10/100 Internal PS as a remote printer in the
/etc/printcap database to each host printing to the 10/100 Internal PS. You can add printcap
options as needed. If you are unfamiliar with these options, consult the printer documentation.
Important • You must be logged in as root.
The entry looks similar to this:
local_print_queue_name|[printer_model_and_manufacturer]:\
:lp=:mx#0:rm=ZebraNet_name:\
:rp=remote_print_queue_name:\
:sd=path_to_spool_directory:lf=just log_file_name
local_print_queue_name — This defines the name of the printcap entry. It is used by
the LPR/LPD utilities to specify which printcap entry is being referenced. Additional printcap
entries can be added as needed for different queue types. Each entry must have a unique
local_print_queue_name and a different spool directory to work properly. When you are ready
to print, use the local_print_queue_name that matches the data type of the file to be printed.
ZebraNet_name — This is the name (alias) of the ZebraNet 10/100 Internal PS. This must
be the same name as entered in the /etc/ hosts file or your NIS or DNS system. An IP
address may also be used here.
remote_print_queue_name — This entry determines the ZebraNet port where the print
job will be printed and optionally specifies ASCII printing that must end for LF1.
path_to_spool_directory — This is the path to a directory where the print jobs will
be spooled for this queue. You must create a unique spool directory for each printcap entry.
log_file_name — This is the path to a file where error information from the LPD will be
logged.
Example • Your printcap entries might look similar to this:
Ascii_files|form.feed.Queue_on_Port_1:\
:lp=:mx#0:rm=pserver1:rp=MYQUEUELF1:\
:sd=/usr/spool/myqueuelf1:\
:lf=/usr/spool/myqueuelf1/queue.log
Important • Each printcap entry must have a different spool directory to work properly.

Configuring Operating System V Queue for ZebraNet Printing
This section describes the configuration of the printing system on the UNIX operating system.
For clarity and brevity, the following specific names are used to represent general devices or
concepts.
lj4 — The local queue name on the UNIX system to which you want 10/100 Internal PS
print jobs directed.
ZEBRAPRINTER — The host name or IP address of the remote system that is the
10/100 Internal PS device. For example, to Telnet to the 10/100 Internal PS and invoke the
10/100 Internal PS configuration utility, you would enter:
Telnet ZEBRAPRINTER
A host name is not required for the 10/100 Internal PS — the IP address can be used.
yourqueuename — This is the name of the queue on the ZebraNet and must end with LF1.
Prerequisites
Before you proceed, the following prerequisites must be met:
• The name ZEBRAPRINTER and the IP address assigned to the 10/100 Internal PS are in
the /etc/hosts file on the UNIX system.
• The LPD must be running on the UNIX system.
Spool Print Job Configuration
To configure the UNIX machine so users can spool print jobs to the PCL print
queue on the ZebraNet named ZEBRAPRINTER, complete these steps:
1. Log in to the UNIX machine as root.
2. Type:
lpsystem -t bsd ZEBRAPRINTER
3. Type:
lpadmin -p lj4 -s ZEBRAPRINTER!yourqueuename - I any
4. Type:
accept lj4
5. Type:
enable lj4
6. Try printing by typing the command:
lp -d lj4 [filename]

Frequently Asked Questions
What if a print job makes it to the queue, but never leaves the queue? The label
does not print. These are the things to check:
• Confirm that the printer is turned on and receiving power.
• Confirm that the network cable is plugged in and that you can ping the printer.
• If the previous bullets do not change the outcome, it is likely that there was a
misconfiguration while creating the queue. The queue must be recreated verifying the
following:
•
Confirm that you use the print server’s valid IP address.
•
If you are using a UNIX or AS/400 host, there is an option for the remote queue name.
There is only one valid response to use: PORTLF1.
•
If Windows does not have LPR installed, the above required option should be left
blank.
•
See the documentation for other operating system specific queue creation.
What are the minimum requirements to network a printer?
• Cat-5 network cable with 10BaseT connectors
• 10/100 Internal PS
• Hub or Switch
•
If a hub or switch is NOT used, you need a cross-over cable.
• Workstation running a TCP stack with print services installed.
What is the default User ID and password for the print server?
• The User ID is admin and the password is 1234.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are my network connectivity options based on when using a
10/100 Internal PS?
It depends on your environment, but the print server accepts print jobs in any of the following
ways:
• FTP — ZPL/EPL files can be sent to the printer as standard ASCII files via an FTP client.
• HTTP — Using the script option on the printers Directory web page, you can type ZPL
into a specified location of the Web browser and send it to the printer.
• LPR/LPD — Sometimes referred to as queue-based printing. LPR/LPD is the standard in
network printing. Most TCP/IP operating systems are compatible with this option.
• Raw socket connection — You can connect to the printer directly via the network,
bypassing everything in between. This option is commonly used to integrate ZPL/EPL into
existing programs, such as VB scripts.
• POP3 — With proper configuration, you can place valid label format instructions into the
body of an email, and it will print. The print server periodically checks this email box at
the specified intervals and prints the body of the message.

10BaseT A type of Ethernet that uses unshielded twisted pair cable.
100BaseT A type of Ethernet that can transmit 100Mb of data per second with a
twisted-pair cable.
ARP The standard TCP/IP method for determining the actual network address of a device
based on its IP address.
ASCII A standard for the binary representation of characters.
BOOTP BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol) is a protocol that lets a network client configure
automatically. It can automatically configure any of the following information: IP address,
gateway, subnet, system name, name server, and more. It automatically assigns the necessary
settings from a pool of pre-determined addresses for a certain duration of time. BOOTP is the
basis for a more advanced network manager protocol, the DHCP (Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol).
broadcast In a network, a situation when all destinations on the network receive a given
packet.
client A workstation or PC in a client/server environment.
community For SNMP, a relationship between an agent and a set of SNMP managers that
defines security characteristics. The community concept is a local one, defined at the agent.
Each community is given a unique community name.
current mode (parallel port) A mode that the printer and print server negotiate.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) DHCP is an alternative to another
network IP management protocol, Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP). Like BOOTP, DHCP can
configure an IP address, gateway, subnet, system name, and name server. When speaking
about the 10/100 Internal PS, BOOTP, and DHCP configure the same options.

delete bytes This number is used to remove characters from the beginning of every job sent
to the logical printer. The value for delete bytes can range from 0 to 255.
dynamic A dynamic configuration, as the name implies, means that it changes. BOOTP and
DHCP offer time-based leases for the configurations they assign. Their changes depend on the
time-based lease, and how often the printer itself is offline and online again. A dynamic
configuration can include BOOTP or DHCP.
Ethernet A widely used local area network system based on the IEEE 802.3 standard.
firmware Software routines that are stored in ROM (Read Only Memory). This is typically
part of a device, such as a printer or 10/100 Internal PS.
FTP File Transfer Protocol, a TCP/IP-related protocol for transferring files between devices
on a network.
Flash memory A type of memory that allows read-and-write operations, but permanently
stores data when the power is turned off. Useful for storing firmware because it can be easily
updated by downloading new code.
gateway A device that converts one higher-level network protocol to a different higher level
protocol.
gleaning A temporary, local configuration option. Gleaning lets you add the address of the
device you want to configure to your local workstation’s ARP table. This configuration is not
permanent and is valid only from the workstation from which you entered the ARP
information. After the information is entered into the workstation’s ARP table, the user
follows up with a Telnet session to enter the information permanently. This configuration
option is used mostly by non-Windows workstations that cannot run the ZebraNet View
configuration utility.
IP Internet Protocol, a packet-based protocol used for delivering data across networks.
IP address A network address used by the TCP/IP protocol.
JetAdmin A Hewlett-Packard printer management program available for NetWare and
TCP/IP.
logical Refers to conceptual rather than physical. For example, a computer might have a
single physical connection to the network (an Ethernet adapter card), but could have logical
connections to several other devices on the network.
LPD LPD stands for Line Printer Daemon; it is the part that receives and processes the
request. A "daemon" is a server or agent.
MAC Address Media Access Control. Ethernet address that corresponds to the assigned IP
address.
name server A workstation on a TCP/IP network that provides a list of all workstations on
the network.
