NetWare 4.x
Directory Services Configuration
Bindery vs. NDS Setup
In addition to its native NDS (NetWare Directory Services), NetWare 4.x can also be
used in Bindery emulation. Bindery emulation is provided on the 1000E for users
more familiar with the NetWare Bindery than with NDS. If Bindery emulation is
preferred, please refer to the NetWare section of the 1000E Instruction Handbook.
PCONSOLE vs. NWADMIN Setup
NetWare 4.x setup can be done with either PCONSOLE or NWADMIN. This Quick
Configuration Guide includes the procedures in PCONSOLE because fewer steps
are required than with NWADMIN. If setup with NWADMIN is preferred, please refer
to the NetWare section of the 1000E Instruction Handbook.
Configuration Utilities
This configuration is accomplished using two utilities, NetWare’s PCONSOLE, and
the Windows-based Management Access Program (MAP) included with the 1000E.
PCONSOLE Configuration
1. Enter PCONSOLE.
2. Set the Current “Context”.
Context is the NetWare term for a specific location in the Directory Services tree.
The current context is displayed in the upper left hand corner of the screen. This
is where the Print Server, Printer, and Queue will be located. If this is not the
desired context for these objects, use the following procedure to change the
current context.
➪ Select Change Context from the PCONSOLE main menu.
➪ Press INSERT to browse to the desired context.
➪ Highlight the desired context and press F10.
Once in the desired context, make a note of it as displayed in the upper left hand

print. If the network is large, the powerup status page may take several
minutes to print. (Note: This time may be reduced by setting a Preferred File
Server for the 1000E with the Management Access Program. Refer to the
NetWare section of the 1000E Instruction Handbook for more information.)
➪ The Novell Connection Information in the bottom half of the status page
displays the printer name, file server, queue, etc. If it displays Attached: Yes,
this confirms that the 1000E Print Server is ready to accept print jobs.
➪ If the status page does not display Attached: Yes, please verify that the
Novell Print Server Name on the status page under Novell Network Information matches exactly with the Print Server name that was entered in
PCONSOLE or refer to the troubleshooting section in the Instruction Handbook.

Windows 95
Peer to Peer Printing Configuration
What is Windows 95 Peer to Peer Printing
The peer to peer printing software which is included with the EcoLAN 1000E allows
Windows 95 PCs to communicate directly with network attached printers. A network
server, such as NetWare or Windows NT, is not required for peer to peer printing.
The peer to peer printing software must be installed on each PC that will use peer to
peer printing. Once the peer to peer printing software is installed, all EcoLAN 1000E
boards on the network automatically appear in the list of available printer ports.
The peer to peer printing software can also be used in networks where servers are
present, however, often the server print services are utilized instead. Server-based
print services offer centralized printing management and spooling and do not require
software (other than the printer driver) to be installed on each PC.
Optional: Changing the Print Server Name
The peer to peer printing software displays the NetWare Print Server Name to
identify the 1000E. The default name is the serial number preceded by KYO, e.g.,
KYO-163495. If desired, this name can be changed to a more easily identifiable
name with either the Management Access Program (MAP) or with a standard
browser.
With the Management Access Program
Follow the MAP Configuration instructions in the NetWare 4.x Directory Services
Configuration section in this guide (the settings other than NetWare Print Server
Name do not need to be entered). The MAP utility requires a NetWare server to be
present.
With a Browser
Connecting to the 1000E with a browser requires the TCP/IP protocol to be loaded
on the browser workstation and requires setting an IP address for the 1000E. The
1000E IP address may be set by following the TCP/IP Configuration instructions in
the Windows NT Configuration section in this guide.
After setting the 1000E IP parameters, connect to the 1000E with the browser by
typing, http://<IP address>, e.g. http://192.42.211.5 At the
1000E Home Page, click on 1000E Configuration and follow the MAP Configuration
instructions (beginning with step 3) in the NetWare 4.x Directory Services Configuration section in this guide (the settings other than NetWare Print Server Name do not
need to be entered).
6
IPX Protocol Installation
The IPX protocol is required for peer to peer printing. IPX is not installed by default
when Windows 95 is first installed, but it can be easily added using the following
procedure.
1. Click on the Windows 95 Start button and select Settings, Control Panel,
Network.
2. Check to see if IPX/SPX-compatible Protocol is displayed on the list of network
components. If it is on the list, IPX is already installed. Please continue with the
next section. If it is NOT on the list, click on Add.
3. Double click on Protocol, click on Microsoft, and double click on IPX/SPXcompatible Protocol. Windows 95 will prompt for the required Windows disks
to install the IPX protocol.
4. Once the files are copied, click on OK to close the network control panel.
Windows 95 will prompt to restart the system. The IPX protocol will not be active
until the system is restarted.
Peer to Peer Printing Software Installation
1. Install and Run the Peer to Peer Software.
The peer to peer printing software should be installed on each Windows 95 PC
that will use peer to peer printing services. The peer to peer printing software is
on the diskette labelled Win95 and NT Windows Redirector which is included
with the EcoLAN 1000E. Follow the instructions on the diskette label to install
the peer to peer printing software onto your system.
2. Select the Printer Port.
If the printer driver has not already been installed, please install it from the CD
which is shipped with the printer before continuing with the following instructions.
➪ Click on the Windows 95 Start button and select Settings, then Printers.
➪ Right click on the appropriate printer driver and select Properties from the
menu.
➪ Select the Details tab and click on the down arrow beside the Print to the
following port: field to display the list of available ports.
➪ Select the 1000E from the list of ports and click on OK. The 1000E is
displayed by its NetWare Print Server Name, e.g., the default name is in the
format KYO-163495.
➪ Peer to peer printing configuration is complete. Print jobs will now be
directed to this 1000E when the current printer driver is used.
7
Windows NT Configuration
There are several options for setting up printing in a Windows NT environment.
◆ If a NetWare server is present, NetWare print services may be used by following
the NetWare configuration instructions in this guide.
◆ Peer to peer print services may be used by following the Windows 95 instructions in this guide, but are only available for Windows NT 4.x, not for Windows
NT 3.51. Peer to peer print services use the IPX protocol and may be preferable when TCP/IP setup is not desired.
◆ LPR print services may be used via TCP/IP by following the instructions in this
section.
Windows NT printing is very flexible. It is possible to configure the individual
Windows NT or Windows 95 workstations to print using a different protocol than the
Windows NT server. For example, a Windows NT server could be configured to
print to a 1000E via TCP/IP using the instructions in this section. The 1000E could
then be designated as shared on the NT server, allowing workstations to print via
the NT server using a different protocol (such as the default NetBEUI).
The optimum Windows NT printing configuration depends upon the particular
environment and user and administrator experience and preferences. Generally,
the LPR printing over TCP/IP covered in the following instructions is the best choice
for environments where TCP/IP is already in use.
TCP/IP Required Components
The Windows NT system performing the 1000E configuration must have the TCP/IP
protocol installed. The following steps describe how to check for and, if necessary,
add the required TCP/IP components.
Windows NT 3.51
1. In the Program Manager group Main, double click on Control Panel.
2. Double click on Network and check the list of Installed Network Software for the
following three components:
Microsoft TCP/IP Printing, Simple TCP/IP Services, & TCP/IP Protocol
3. If any of these components are missing, click on Add Software, select TCP/IP
Protocol and related components and click on Continue.
4. Select TCP/IP Network Printing Support and Simple TCP/IP Services and
click Continue.
5. After all necessary files are copied, click on OK to close the Network Settings
dialog and restart the system when prompted. The new protocol and/or services
will not be available until the system is restarted.
8
Windows NT 4.0
1. Click on the Windows Start button, select Settings, and Control Panel.
2. Double click on Network and select the Protocols tab. If TCP/IP Protocol is not
in the list of Network Protocols, click on Add to install it.
3. Select the Services tab. If either Microsoft TCP/IP Printing or Simple TCP/IP
Services is not in the list of Network Services, click on Add to install them.
4. Click on Close when all protocols and services have been added. If the TCP/IP
protocol has just been added, Windows will prompt for the IP address and other
TCP/IP parameters. The new protocols and services will not be available until
the system is restarted.
1000E TCP/IP Configuration
A utility called NTBOOTP is used to configure the IP parameters on the 1000E. This
utility may be found on the diskette labelled PC Diskette which is included with the
1000E. Note: The NTBOOTP utility does not work when run on a system configured
as a DHCP server.
1. In Windows NT 3.51, select Run from the File menu in Program Manager.
In Windows NT 4.0, click on the Windows Start button and select Run.
2. Type: A:\NTBOOTP.EXE and click OK to launch the utility.
3. Select Configure from the Admin menu.
4. Enter the IP parameters.
➪ Enter the IP address to assign to the 1000E.
➪ Enter the Subnet mask. If unsure of the correct Subnet mask and the first
number in the 1000E IP address is from 192 to 254, then use 255.255.255.0
as the Subnet mask.
➪ Enter the Default Gateway address (the router’s IP address) or leave blank.
➪ Enter the Hardware Address of the 1000E. This address is listed on the
powerup network status page under Network Address, for example,
00:40:af:13:c9:f0. Please enter it as it appears on the status page. The
status pages (a printer status page and a 1000E status page) may also be
printed by pressing the Status key on the front panel of the printer.
5. Click on Go to send the new settings to the 1000E. After a few minutes (usually
between 1 and 2 minutes, but possibly up to 5 minutes on very large or busy
networks), the 1000E will reset and print its network status page. The new IP
parameters will be listed in the TCP/IP Network Information section on the status
page. If the status page doesn’t print, recheck the Hardware Address entry in
NTBOOTP. (If the powerup status page has been disabled, press the Status key
on the printer’s front panel.) Once the status page prints, the new IP address
may also be verified by selecting Verify from the Admin menu.
9
Setting Up LPR Printing
If the printer driver has not already been installed, please install it from the CD which
is shipped with the printer before continuing. In the following instructions, some field
or dialog names may be vary depending upon the NT release pack in use.
Windows NT 3.51
1. In the Program Manager group Main, open the Control Panel and double click on
Printers.
2. Highlight the appropriate printer and select Properties from the Printer menu.

10
Macintosh Configuration
For Macintosh compatibility, Mita printers must be equipped with the KPDL II
PostScript option.
Installing the Driver and Selecting the Printer
1. To install the Macintosh Printer Driver and Utilities from the CD which is provided
with the printer, open the Drivers folder, then the USA/English folder, and double
click on the DP-2800 USA Installer.
2. Once installation is complete and your system has been restarted, select
Chooser from the Apple menu to open the Chooser.
3. Select the DP-2800 Driver, the zone (if any) and the 1000E printer. The default
name for the printer is KYO_ followed by the 1000E six digit serial number.
4. Click on Setup. Select the appropriate PPD file for the printer from the pop-up
menu near the bottom of the screen. Turn on Background Printing if desired and
close the Chooser.
5. From the File menu within any application, select either Page Setup or Print.
6. Click on the Options button, click on Options Installed, and select the paper
handling accessories that are installed on the printer.
7. Optional: Click on the appropriate selection to set the desired defaults for options
such as Output Tray, Image Refinement, Duplexing, etc.
Naming the Printer and Changing Other Settings
There are two methods for changing additional 1000E settings; 1) with the DP-2800
Utility, and 2) with a standard browser. Connecting to the printer’s IP address with a
browser allows changing Macintosh, NetWare, and TCP/IP settings on the 1000E,
whereas the DP-2800 Utility can only be used to change Macintosh settings on the
1000E. For those users that do not have a browser and/or do not want to assign an
IP address to the 1000E, instructions for using the DP-2800 Utility are provided
below. Instructions for configuring with a browser can be found in the Instruction
Handbook.
1. Double click on the DP-2800 Utility icon on the Macintosh desktop.
2. Highlight KYO_<serial#>, e.g. KYO_163479 in the printer list and click on
General.
3. Click on Rename Printer and type the desired printer name in the Printer Name
field. Click on OK to return to the General Printer Options dialog.
4. Click on Network Options, select the desired zone for the printer from the
Available Zones list and click on Set Zone.
5. Enable or disable the power on status page as desired and click on Done. This
completes Macintosh printing configuration.
11
UNIX Configuration
UNIX printing utilizes a line printer daemon (lpd) to direct print jobs to the printer.
The 1000E supports two modes of lpd printing, host-based lpd and printer-based lpd.
With host-based lpd, the line printer daemon is run on one or more workstations
(hosts) where print jobs are accepted and sent to the 1000E. With printer-based lpd,
the 1000E acts as the line printer daemon host and accepts print jobs directly. Many
UNIX systems allow either lpd mode to be used, although configuration may be
easier for one of the modes depending upon the UNIX system. Following are some
advantages and disadvantages of each mode:
Banner Page Comparison
The host-based lpd can include the user name and file name on the banner page,
while the printer-based lpd can only include the host name.
Configuration Comparison
The host-based lpd requires configuration on each host that will be sending jobs to
the printer, while the printer-based lpd requires only the 1000E to be configured.
1000E Configuration
TCP/IP configuration of the 1000E is needed for all versions of UNIX and is therefore
covered in this guide. Lpd configuration depends upon the mode selected and the
UNIX system in use. Please refer to the Instruction Handbook for lpd configuration
instructions for your particular UNIX system.
Setting the IP Address
The 1000E IP address may be initially set in a variety of ways, including with the
MAP utility when a NetWare server is present, with the UNIX bootp daemon, with
rarp, or with the standard UNIX command line utility arp. The following instructions
use arp, but the other methods may be used instead depending upon user preference. For directions on using one of the other methods, please refer to the Instruction Handbook.
1. Press the Status key on the front panel of the printer with the 1000E, or, if the
printer is off, turn it on and wait for the powerup network status page to print.
2. Add an entry to the hosts file (usually etc/hosts) that includes the printer’s name
and the IP address. For example, to name the printer ABC7000 and associate it
with an IP address of 197.42.211.5, place the following entry in the hosts file:
197.42.211.5 ABC7000
3. At the UNIX command prompt, type:
12
arp -s <desired_IP_address> <1000E_ethernet_address>
The 1000E ethernet address is listed on the network status page as Network
Address. For example,
arp -s 197.42.211.5 00:40:AF:13:A2:70
4. At the UNIX command prompt, type: ping <desired_IP_address>
For example, ping 197.42.211.5 The 1000E will not respond to this
ping command, but will read the IP address.
5. After a few minutes (usually between 1 and 2 minutes, but possibly up to 5
minutes on very large or busy networks), the 1000E will reset and print its
network status page. The new IP address will be listed in the TCP/IP Network
Information section. If the status page doesn’t print, recheck the 1000E ethernet
address entry in the arp command. Once the status page prints, the new IP
address may also be verified with the ping command.
Setting Other TCP/IP Parameters
Once the IP address is set, the 1000E can be configured via telnet or with a
standard web browser. The following steps describe configuration with a standard
browser. For instructions on configuring via telnet, refer to the Instruction Handbook.
1. In the browser, connect to http://<1000E_IP_address>
For example, http://197.42.211.5
2. At the 1000E’s Home Page, click on 1000E Configuration.
3. Many of the configuration options are password protected. The default password
is: sysadm The password is case sensitive. To change the password, select
Change Password in the System column.
4. Select Setup TCP/IP in the Protocols column and change the settings as
appropriate. If unsure of the correct Subnet mask, and the first number in the
1000E IP address is from 192 to 254, then use 255.255.255.0 as the Subnet
mask. The Base Port Number displayed is one less than the printer’s actual port
number, thus for the default of 9100, the Base Port Number is set to 9099. Hostbased lpd requires a port number of 10001, therefore, if using host-based lpd,
change the Base Port Number to 10000.
5. Type the sysadm password in the appropriate box and click Accept Settings.
After a few seconds the screen should report that the update was successful.
Click the Back Arrow icon twice to return to the 1000E Configuration page.
6. Optional: Click on Configure Status Page in the Printer column to define
powerup status page settings, (e.g. disabling the powerup status page).
7. The changes made to the 1000E do not take effect until the unit is reset. Click
on Reset in the System column and click Reset Unit. After a few seconds the
screen reports that the unit was reset. TCP/IP configuration is now complete.
