4.1.6 Set Up Notify Options for the Printer (Optional)
To enable the print server to notify users or user groups if a problem occurs with the
printer, set up the Notify options. The print server supports the enhanced NOTIFY
options for printers, including informing users when the printer:
• Is off-line, jammed, opened, or out of paper
• Requires a manual paper feed or a form change
• Has had an engine failure
1. Choose Notify List for Printer on the Print Server Configuration menu.
NetWare Configuration 4-6
2. Select the printer from the Defined Printers list. The screen appears (which is
blank for an initial installation). Press INS to view a list of Notify Candidates.
3. Select the user or group from the list.
4. Set the First and Next intervals in the Notify Intervals screen. It is recommended
that you use the defaults. The First interval is the number of seconds the network
waits before it notifies candidates about a print job problem. The Next interval
specifies how often in seconds candidates are notified. Enter a number for each
interval and press ENTER.
5. Press the ESC key and then choose Save Changes. Press the ESC key at each
screen until you reach the Print Server Configuration menu. If you have finished
the configuration, press the ESC key and then save the changes.
4.1.7 Installing the EcoLAN 1000E on Multiple File Servers
To install the EcoLAN 1000E on more than one file server, perform the procedures
described in Sections 4.1.1 through 4.1.6 for each file server. You must use the same
name and password for the print server (or no password) on all file servers. You set the
password for the EcoLAN 1000E using the MAP program (refer to 4.3 Configuring
the EcoLAN 1000E in NetWare Directory Services ). If you use a password, specify it
on each file server using the Change Password option on the Print Server Information
menu of the PCONSOLE utility.
NetWare Configuration 4-7
When the EcoLAN 1000E comes up, it automatically searches for and attaches to the
file servers that are no more than four hops and have no more than eight ticks
propagation delay. For extremely large or complex networks, this allows a bounded
search time on start-up. If the print server must attach to file servers beyond this range,
or, if you wish to accelerate start-up by eliminating the need to search all file servers in
the four hops/eight ticks radius, the file servers with which the print server is to
operate may be entered into the Print Server Configuration of a "primary" file server.
The primary file server can be any file server within the four hops/eight ticks
propagation time limits, but ideally is as close as possible to the print server. Once the
print server locates the primary file server and the list of file servers to be serviced, the
automatic search is dropped and the print server will go directly to those file servers
listed (and to no others).
4.1.8 Primary File Server
To use the primary file server option, use the following procedure on a file server close
to the printer:
1. List the file servers to be serviced by the primary file server by selecting File
Server To Be Serviced option from the Print Server Configuration Menu.
2. Press the Insert key to display the Available File Servers list.
3. Select the name if each file server to be serviced and press ENTER to add it to the
File Servers To Be Serviced list.
4. When the list is complete, press the ESC key to return to the menu.
5. Install the EcoLAN 1000E on each of the primary file servers.
4.1.9 Preferred File Servers
The MAP or Web Browser utilities allow you to identify a "preferred" file server, to be
identified within the EcoLAN 1000E itself. If a preferred file server is listed, the
EcoLAN 1000E will attach to this identified file server instead of initiating the
automatic search. If the preferred file server is also a primary file server (for example,
has file servers listed under file servers to be serviced), the EcoLAN 1000E will
connect directly to these file servers.
Note:
The Preferred File Server is only applicable to bindery-based queues. Entering it
has no affect on NDS queues.
NetWare Configuration 4-8
4.2 Configuring NetWare 4.x — Bindery Emulation
Novell’s NetWare 4.x can operate in two modes — NetWare Directory Services
(NDS) and Bindery Services Emulation. For Directory Services, see 4.3 Configuring
the EcoLAN 1000E in NetWare Directory Services . These services run simultaneously
and transparently to each other. The EcoLAN 1000E may be configured to operate
with Bindery Services mode only (this section), or to operate under NDS (4.3
Configuring the EcoLAN 1000E in NetWare Directory Services ). When configured
under NDS, the EcoLAN 1000E will also service older fileservers operating in
bindery mode.
Note:
If the EcoLAN 1000E is not properly set up for NDS and the Bindery Services
mode is not running, the EcoLAN 1000E can not find its file servers, and the
status page indicates the Novell NetWare protocol is not active.
4.2.1 Confirm Bindery Context
Before installing the EcoLAN 1000E on a Novell NetWare 4.x server in Bindery
Emulation mode, check that the server has a Bindery Context (name for the server
under Bindery Services mode). If the server does not have Bindery Context, it may be
preferable to install in NDS mode. If the EcoLAN 1000E must be installed in the
Bindery Emulation mode, the server must have Bindery Context. Perform the
following steps to confirm the server has Bindery Context:
1. Go to the 4.x server and at the system console type: load install
2.
3.
4.
5.
Select Maintenance/Selective Install from the menu.
Select NCF Files Options from the menu.
Select Edit AUTOEXEC.NCF from the menu.
Search the file to see if you have a statement similar to the following included:
SET BINDERY CONTEXT=0U=ENG
Where =0U=ENG is an example of a name for the file server context. Use your
own file server context in place of =0U=ENG.
NetWare Configuration 4-9
6. At the console prompt, type the SET BINDERY CONTEXT statement that you
entered in the autoexec.ncf file.
Note:
The command at the console prompt takes effect immediately. The definition in
the file takes effect when the server is shut down and then restarted.
4.2.2 Configure in Bindery Mode with PCONSOLE
Once you confirm the server has Bindery Context, use the following procedures to
configure the EcoLAN 1000E.
1. Log into the network as ADMIN.
2. Type PCONSOLE and press ENTER. The following screen appears.
Available Options
Print Queues
Printers
Print Drivers
Quick Setup
Change Context
3. When the Available Options menu appears, press the F4 key (for the Bindery
Mode).
Note:
If you receive a message asking you to login to a server with Bindery connections,
the server you are attached to does not have Bindery Mode enabled. Follow the
procedures in 4.2.1 Confirm Bindery Context or log onto a server with Bindery
Services activated.
NetWare Configuration 4-10
4. From the Available Options screen, select Quick Setup and press ENTER.
Use Quick Setup to connect your EcoLAN 1000E, print queue and printer
correctly. You can modify these later if you need to.
5. Select Print server and press the F3 key to modify the entry.
6. Enter the name of the print server in the Print server field and press ENTER.
Note:
The print server name is printed under the Novell Network Information on the
Status and Configuration report. The factory default name consists of three letter
identifier, an underscore, and the serial number of the unit.
7. Press the ESC key to move to the New printer field. Enter a name and press
ENTER.
8. Press the ESC key to move to the New print queue field. Enter a name and press
ENTER.
9. Press the ESC key to move to the Printer type field and press ENTER. From the
list of printer types, select Other/Unknown and press ENTER.
10. When you are finished, press the F10 key to save the configuration.
Repeat steps 5 through 10 for each file server that the printer server services.
11. To view, add, delete, or modify print servers or queues after the initial setup, select
either the Print Queues or Print Servers option on the Available Options screen.
NetWare Configuration 4-11
4.3 Configuring the EcoLAN 1000E in NetWare
Directory Services
NetWare Directory Services (NDS) offers a different, more advanced approach to
network management than previous NetWare versions. Generally, it stores and tracks
all network objects. As a rule, all 4.x servers must have NDS loaded in order to
function. In this way, every NetWare 4.x server is a Directory server, because it
services named Directory objects such as printers, print servers and print queues. With
the appropriate privileges, you can create a print server object, which, once configured
in its context (or location) on the network, eliminates the cumbersome setup of print
servers on every network server. NDS provides true enterprise networking based on a
shared network database rather than a individually defined physical sites. The result is
greatly improved print server setup and management.
The Directory Information Base (DIB) is used to store information about servers and
services, users, printers, gateways, etc. It is a distributed database, allowing access to
data anywhere on the network wherever it is stored. Pre-4.x NetWare versions provide
the same data found in the DIB but the data is stored in the NetWare Bindery. The DIB
was designed with more flexible access, more specific security, and, since it is
distributed, it was designed to be partitioned. The Directory uses an object-oriented
structure rather than the flat-file structure of the Bindery, and offers network-oriented
access, rather than server-oriented access found in the Bindery.
The Directory is backward-compatible with the NetWare Bindery through Bindery
emulation mode. This section describes Print Server Operation with a 4.x NetWare
system in bindery emulation mode. When Bindery emulation is enabled, Directory
Services will accept Bindery requests and respond just as if a Bindery existed on the
NetWare server being accessed. Be aware that information obtained from the Bindery
query may not be stored in the server since the Directory is a partitioned and
distributed database. Even though the NetWare 4.x server is not operating from a
Bindery, the applications making Bindery requests will not know the difference.
You may use NWADMIN to configure the printer in NDS. Prior to printing, NDS must
be set up as follows and the EcoLAN 1000E must be set up with NDS Context and
Tree. See Section 4.4. The steps below describe the use of NWADMIN configuration
to create printer, print server, and print queue objects. Then, you will assign, or
associate those objects with each other. If you wish to keep Bindery resources on any
server, you can under NetWare 4.x if you declare a SET statement in your
AUTOEXEC.NCF file.
NetWare Configuration 4-12
For those who prefer, NetWare does offer PCONSOLE as an alternative to
NWADMIN. PCONSOLE can be used to set up static information about print servers
such as: which queues to service, and whom to notify in the event of a problem. See
Novell NetWare documentation for more information about the use of PCONSOLE
for NDS.
4.3.1 Create Printer Object
1. Click on the NWADMIN icon in the NetWare Tools group in Windows. The
NetWare Administrator window will appear. To bring up your Directory Tree,
open a Browser window by clicking on the Tools menu item and, the Browse

menu and choose Create.
2. At the New Object window, scroll down the Class of New Object icon list, select
the Print Queue icon, and click on the OK button.
3. At the Create Print Queue screen, click on the Directory Service Queue button,
then type in values for Print Queue Name and Print Queue Volume and click on
the Create button. If you don't know the Print Queue Volume name (the hard
drive you will be accessing), click on the icon to the right of the volume field. The
Select Object window will appear with the volume listed in Objects. If the
volume is not listed, scroll the Directory Context items until you find the volume
where you want the queue to reside.
NetWare Configuration 4-15
Click on the object (hard drive) of your choice and it will appear in the Selected
Object: field. Click on the OK button. The full volume will now appear in the
Print Queue Volume field. Finally, click on the Create button.
4.3.4 Assign Printer Object
1. Go to the Directory Tree. Double click on the printer object just created and bring
up the Printer window. See below. Find the Assignments button on the right-side
of the window and click on the Add button.
NetWare Configuration 4-16
2. When the Select Object window appears, find the print queue object just created
among the choices listed in the Objects box and select it.
Click on the OK button and the print queue just created is added to the Print
Queues: box in the Printer: window. Click on the OK button again.

to perform the EcoLAN 1000E Configuration in the following section and reset
(power cycle) the printer.
NetWare Configuration 4-20
4.4 EcoLAN 1000E Configuration
The MAP utility or an IP Web Browser must used to define the context and tree of the
Print Server. It is also used to change the Print Server name, set in a password, modify
scan and frame search parameters, and sent in bindery-mode specific values.
Use the MAP utility or IP Web Browser (refer to Chapter 3) to access the Setup pages
of the EcoLAN 1000E. Once you have accessed the Network Administration pages or
the Main Menu, do the following:
1. Select Setup NetWare under Protocols.
2. Click on Enable NetWare. If it is not selected, the NetWare protocols will not
come up, the EcoLAN 1000E will not appear as an advertised device, and the NIC
will not be accessible using IPX SNMP.
3. The default name for the NetWare Print Server is KYO_123456, where 123456 is
the serial number of the EcoLAN 1000E. This is also the name of the printer in
peer-to-peer mode. If you want to change the default Print Server name , type this
name in the Print Server Name space. This name must match the Print Server
name previously defined in the PCONSOLE or NWADMIN setup. Leave the
space blank if the default name is to be used.
4. If you want the EcoLAN 1000E login with a password, this password may be
entered in the Print Server Password field, and again in the Password Retype
field. If a password is used, this password must be the same password for all
bindery-based and NDS-based Print Server entries.
5. Enter the name of a preferred bindery-based file server in the Preferred File
Server field. The Preferred File Server entry is significant only for bindery or
bindery emulation based operations. Refer to 4.1.9 Preferred File Servers for the
significance of a Preferred File Server. The Print Server must be configures on the
preferred file server. Incorrect setup of a Preferred File Server can interfere with
NetWare printing.
6. If the Print Server is to be operated under Novell Directory Services, type in a
Context entry and Preferred NDS Tree entry in the appropriate fields. Be sure to
give the whole context, whether typed or typeless, and do not begin your context
path with a trailing period (.). If you don't know your tree, type: whoami at the
DOS command line. A typed context name example is:
ou=standard.ou=organization_1
NetWare Configuration 4-21
7. In the default mode, the Print Server scans each queue which it is to service once
per second. If you prefer a longer scan rate, you may enter the time between scans
in seconds in the Print Queue Scan Rate field.
8. The EcoLAN 1000E will normally monitor the network to determine which frame
type is being used for Novell. When it recognizes a type, it will assume the same
frame type. Once it selects a frame type, the EcoLAN 1000E will only operate
over that Novell frame type. Monitoring normally starts looking for IEEE 802.3,
then Ethernet II, then 802.3 SNAP, etc. If your network is using multiple frame
types for Novell, you should bias the frame search to the desired type by setting
the button next to the designation under Ethernet Frame Type.
9. You can Disable Bindery mode on the Print Server if are operating in NDS mode
only. To do so, click on that box. If you disable Bindery, the EcoLAN 1000E will
not support Print Servers on a Bindery file server.
10. Once you have selected all desired settings and entered the desired NetWare
information, you may cause this information to be entered in the EcoLAN 1000E
NV RAM by clicking on Accept Settings. As with all value changes, if you have
not entered the EcoLAN 1000E Management Password before, you must enter it
in the appropriate space before clicking on Accept Settings.
11. Entered values do not take effect until the EcoLAN 1000E is reset or power
cycled. You may reset from MAP or the Web Browser by returning to the Home
or Network Administration page, and click on Reset under System. Now click
on Reset Unit. Alternatively, you may power cycle the printer. The new NetWare
values should now be in effect.

Windows Peer-to-Peer Printing
Windows Peer-to-Peer printing allows Windows-95 workstations and Windows NT
4.0 workstations and servers to print to EcoLAN 1000E printers without an
intervening server and without using IP. The main features of the Windows
Peer-to-Peer printing are as follows:
• Runs on Windows-95 workstations and on Windows NT 4.0 workstations or servers
“out of the box”.
• Runs on networks which do not have a NetWare file server, as well as those that do.
• Implements peer-to-peer bi-directional printing between Windows workstations and
EcoLAN 1000E printers.
5.1 Introduction and Preparation
The Peer-to-Peer implementation uses the IPX/SPX stacks that are provided with
Windows 95 or Windows NT. The redirector software provided will establish a
connection with the printers supporting Peer-to-Peer, without using an intermediate
file server, whether or not your network uses Novell NetWare.
When configuring the network capabilities for the Windows computer, you must
include the "IPX/SPX Compatible Protocol". If you are not using NetWare, you do
not need to activate any NetWare Client application.
Windows Peer-to-Peer Printing 5-1
This inclusion of IPX/SPX can also be done after initial Windows installation by
going to the Network setup function under Control Panel. To do this, you will need the
Windows CD.
Note:
Because Peer-to-Peer uses the IPX/SBX Protocol, Novell operation must remain
enabled on the EcoLAN 1000E, even if traditional Novell printing facilities are
not being used. The name of the Peer-to-Peer printer, as it appears in the Windows
Port List, is the same as the Novell Print Server name, and may be changed by
changing the Novell Print Server name using the Web-based management or MAP
utilities.
On power up, the EcoLAN 1000E sniffs the network to see if there is Novell activity.
If there is, it will use the same frame type and the local network number that it senses.
If, in addition, the NIC can log on to a file server, it will assume that Novell is
normally used and will store this frame type and new number in NV RAM so that,
when it comes up again, it will not have to spend the time sensing (which can take
some time). However, if the NIC cannot attach to a file server, it will use the sensed
values, but will not store them.
If the NIC does not see any Novell activity, it will use 802.2 on 802.3 as a frame type
and will assign itself a network number of 0. The frame type and network number
being used is reported on the status and configuration sheet.
If a NIC is being moved from a site that had active Novell to a site that does not, the
unit should be reset to factory default to clear the frame type and network number
information.
5.2 Installation and Operation
Install the Windows Peer-to-Peer redirector as follows:
1. Put the Windows Setup utilities diskette in your A: or B: drive.
2. From the Windows main window, click on Start.
3. Click on Run.
4. From the Run screen, select the Setup file from the diskette that you placed in
your A: or B: drive.
5. Click on OK.
Windows Peer-to-Peer Printing 5-2
6. At the Peer-to-Peer Setup screen, click on Next.
If setup detected a previous installation of the Peer-to-Peer Redirector, it will
prompt you to have Setup delete the old driver and continue the installation
procedure. Click on Yes or No.
Once the redirector is installed, each printer on the network that supports this peer-topeer capability will appear as a Port under Printer Properties.
To use the Peer-to-Peer connection, create a logical printer using the Add Printer
Wizard according to the instructions for your printer. Set up the printer as a LOCAL
printer. Use the driver that came with your printer.
When the Add Printer Wizard asks you to choose the Port, select the name of the
Peer-to-Peer printer you wish to print to. When you complete the installation, select
the Print Test Page option.

EcoLAN 1000E and the Macintosh Computer
The network printer information presented in this chapter applies to the Macintosh
Operating System. The DP-2800 Macintosh solution is supported by an installer on
the CD packaged with the DP-2800 printer.
Important:
For Macintosh compatibility, the PostScript option, KPDL-II must be
installed, and the default emulation for the Option interface must be set to
KPDL or KPDL (Auto).
A utility called KyoManage which allows setting the printer’s IP Address from a
Macintosh is available from Mita’s web site (www.Mita.com). Instructions for
KyoManage are included at the end of this chapter. Once the printer’s IP Address is
set, the 1000E may be managed with a standard browser by connecting to the printers
IP address (http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx).
6.1 Using the DP-2800 Macintosh Installer
The DP-2800 Macintosh installer can be found on the Mita CD which accompanies
the printer. Because the DP-2800 Driver and the DP-2800 Utility create their own
preference files on the Macintosh, the DP-2800 installer must be used on each
Macintosh system on the network.
To use the installer, open the drivers folder on the CD and select the DP-2800 installer.
The DP-2800 installer places the DP-2800 Driver, the DP-2800 Utility, the TrueType
Screen Fonts, PPDs, and the readme file onto your Macintosh. After installing the DP2800 files, the DP-2800 installer closes and restarts the Macintosh system.
EcoLAN 1000E and the Macintosh Computer 6-1
The DP-2800 installer consists of the following items:
• DP-2800 Driver - the software works with applications to select DP-2800 printer
features and options. It reads information from the Postscript printer description
(PPD) file, finding the available options for the selected model. Both theDP-2800
Driver and the PPDs are selected in the Chooser under the Apple Menu. The
installer places the 450K driver into the System/Extensions folder.
• DP-2800 Utility - the software enables the user to manage network printers, to
identify their general features, to send text and command strings to the them, to
manage fonts, to rename network printers and set power on status pages. The
installer places the 320K utility on the desktop.
• TrueType Screen Fonts- this collection of ten (10) screen fonts matches the printer
fonts to provide true WYSIWYG. The installer places the 1.5 MB font collection in
the System/Fonts folder.
• Postscript printer description (PPD) file- This file contains the feature and option
information for each model DP-2800 printer. It uses an industry standard PPD
format to report to the driver and the utility and provides support for paper handling
options, fonts, language support, paper size, and printer options. The installer places
the DP-2800 PPD files into the System/Extensions/Printer Descriptions folder
where they reside with other manufacturer's PPDs. They occupy 1.2MB of disk
space on the Macintosh.
• Readme File- This file provides installation instructions, font information and last
minute change information. The installer places the file on the Apple desktop.
6.2 Setting the Printer’s Default Emulation
Before accessing the printer from the Macintosh, the printer’s default emulation must
be set to KPDL or KPDL (Auto). KPDL (Auto) will automatically determine the
necessary emulation for KPDL (PostScript) and non-KPDL print jobs.
If only PostScript print jobs will be sent to the printer, use KDPL emulation. If both
PostScript and non-PostScript jobs will be sent to the printer, use KPDL (Auto)
emulation.
The following procedure may be used to change the default emulation from the
printer’s front panel.
1. Press the Mode Select key.
2. Press + or - until Interface is displayed. If the current Interface is not Option, then

6.7 Using the KyoManage Utility
The KyoManage Utility is available from Mita’s web site (www.Mita.com) for
network system administrators who use a Macintosh computer to manage the network
DP-2800 printers. With this Utility, the network administrator can rename the DP2800 printers and set IP addresses for them. With an IP address, the printer can be
assigned and managed on the network and viewed by web browsing software. IP
address assignment is not available through the DP-2800 Driver or DP-2800 Utility.
The KyoManage Utility can be run from the diskette or copied to and run from a
folder on your system.
EcoLAN 1000E and the Macintosh Computer 6-13
To set the printer’s IP Address, follow these steps:
1. Open KyoManage.
2. Highlight the desired Mita printer and click on Select.
3. Open the LAN Printer Server menu and select Protocol Setup.
4. Enter the appropriate on/off settings for NetWare and TCP/IP. LAT for DEC systems is not functional for the EcoLAN 1000E.
5. For TCP/IP, set the IP Address, the Subnet Mask and the Default Gateway.
6. Choose OK and exit KyoManage.
Setting the IP Address will cause the EcoLAN 1000E to reset and print a Network
Status Page. On large networks the status page may take several minutes to print. The
new IP Address may be verified on the Network Status Page.

TCP/IP Configuration
This chapter explains how to configure the EcoLAN 1000E and your network for use
with TCP/IP communication in various environments. Independent setup and
installation procedures are provided for Windows systems and for most popular UNIX
systems. The EcoLAN 1000E TCP/IP capability will also operate with lpr spoolers on
other systems, and with spooler/supervisor capabilities that communicate raw print
jobs to the Print Server TCP/IP Port. This port number defaults to 9100, but may be
changed to any desired number using the Telnet utility, SNMP, or the HTML pages
accessible via MAP or a Web Browser. Section 7.4 Running Telnet on page 40
describes the interactive setup capability accessible through the Telnet utility on any
TCP/IP platform, and is equally applicable to Windows, UNIX, and other TCP/IP
environments. The use of MAP or a Web Browser to access HTML management
pages in the EcoLAN 1000E is described in Chapter 3.
7.1 Installation in a Windows Environment
The several versions and variations of Microsoft Windows may be used on NetWare
and/or TCP/IP networks, as well as in a native Microsoft Windows networks. This
flexibility allows various options for setting up the network printing system even
though this EcoLAN 1000E does not support Netbeui. If the Windows workstations
are connected to a NetWare network, configure the printer interfaces for NetWare, and
use standard Windows/NetWare utilities to provide access to the printer. If NetWare is
not to be used, the users may access the printer using TCP/IP. Windows 95 and
Windows NT 4.0 users can also use the EcoLAN 1000E Peer-to-Peer capability as
described in Chapter 5. The following sections describe installation using TCP/IP
under Windows for Workgroups, Windows 95, and Windows NT.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-1
7.1.1 Windows for Workgroups
Printing with TCP/IP requires that the workstation have TCP/IP capability and the
corresponding spooler, lpr; or that the workstation can share an lpr queue on a
Windows NT server (for example) that has one. In general, if printers are not shared,
an -lpr queue must be created on each workstation from which printing is initiated.
See the Windows documentation about sharing printers.
Windows for Workgroups does not normally come with TCP/IP. However, various
TCP/IP facilities are available for Windows for Workgroups workstations, including a
free TCP/ IP provided by Microsoft. There are third party lpr spoolers available. The
following instructions are based on the Microsoft TCP/IP and a shareware lpr
application that is available from various sources, including Mita. You will need the
files WFWTCP32.zip and WFWTCP32.txt for the TCP/IP, and wlprs41.zip and
wlprspl.txt for the lpr.
You will need the BOOTPL.exe file if you wish to use the BOOTP Lite program to set
up IP parameters. The BOOTPL.exe file is provided with the EcoLAN 1000E on the
Windows Setup Utilities diskette.
7.1.1.1Installing TCP/IP
Follow the instructions in the text file for the TCP/IP stack to set up TCP/IP on the
workstations.
7.1.1.2Loading the lpr Spooler
The Windows lpr Spooler Version 4.1 - User’s Guide (wlprspl.txt), provides detailed
instructions for decompressing and installing the shareware lpr spooler.
7.1.1.3Setting up the EcoLAN 1000E
The EcoLAN 1000E must be given IP address and routing information to be used with
TCP/IP. This can be done with Management Access Program (MAP) if you have a
NetWare connection on your network, or with the AppleTalk KYOManage program if
there is an Apple Macintosh on the network. The KYOManage program is not
included with the EcoLAN 1000E, but is available from Mita’s web site at:
www.Mita .com. Follow the instructions for these programs which are documented
elsewhere in this handbook. If you cannot use these programs, you can use either the
ARP procedure or the BOOTP Lite program.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-2
Prior to running these programs, install the EcoLAN 1000E in your printer. Power -up
the printer. Keep the status sheet handy for the Ethernet (MAC) address. It should
show that TCP/IP is enabled, but that the Protocol address is not configured. If the unit
already has an IP address, -these procedures will not work. However, you can Telnet
to the unit or use the HTML pages accessed by MAP or a Web Browser to change the
IP parameters.
7.1.1.4Assigning IP Address with ARP
The EcoLAN 1000E must be on the same network segment as the workstation that
you are using to configure it. The TCP/IP stack must be installed and operating.
Use the procedures in 7.1.1.5 Assigning IP Address with BOOTP Lite on page 4 if you
prefer to use a windows-based program to configure the IP address instead of the
command line utility ARP:
1. From Windows, enter the MS/DOS box.
2. At the command prompt enter:
ping [any valid IP address on your network - not the print server]; the identified unit
should reply
arp -s [IP address of EcoLAN 1000E] [MAC Address of EcoLAN 1000E]; the entry
should be accepted
Note:
For Windows 95 users, the MAC address must be separated by a dash (-). For
example, 00-40-af-36-85-40.
For UNIX users, the MAC address must be separated by a colon (:). For example,
00:40:af:36:85:40.
ping [IP address of EcoLAN 1000E]; request should time out
3. Recycle the power on the printer, or let the EcoLAN 1000E reset itself. The
EcoLAN 1000E will produce a status page that should include the entered IP
address.
4. When the EcoLAN 1000E is up again, type the following at the command prompt:
TCP/IP Configuration 7-3
ping [IP address of EcoLAN 1000E] (continue until you get a reply)
Note:
This only enters the IP address; you must use the Telnet facility, the HTML pages
accessed by MAP, or a Web Browser to complete the IP setup for networks where
subnets are used. See 7.4 Running Telnet on page 40 for instructions on how to
enter the other IP parameters using Telnet.
7.1.1.5Assigning IP Address with BOOTP Lite
This program uses the BOOTP protocol. The EcoLAN 1000E must be on the same
network segment as the workstation that you are using to configure it. The TCP/IP
stack must be installed and operating. The BOOTP Lite program will not work in a
Windows PC Operating as a DHCP Server.
The BOOTPL.exe program will work with a 16 Bit TCP/IP Stack (FTP, NetManage,
B&W, or WFWG).
1. Copy the BOOTPL.exe file to the Windows directory of your workstation.
2. From Program Manager under File, select Run \windows\ BOOTPL.exe.
3. Pull down the Admin menu to Configure option.
4. Enter the IP address that you want to assign to the EcoLAN 1000E, its Subnet
Mask (make sure it matches what you are using on your subnet), the Default Gateway (your router’s IP address), and the MAC address of the EcoLAN 1000E
(Hardware Address, listed on the Status sheet as Ethernet Address). Use colons as
delimiters as shown on the status sheet rather than the dashes that Windows uses.
5. Click on Go. You will get a message that the program is Verifying, and then it
will tell you whether the unit is active or not.
6. Wait for about five minutes for the EcoLAN 1000E to reset. The Status sheet
should report the newly entered IP information.
7. Enter the MS/DOS box. At the command prompt enter:
ping [IP address of EcoLAN 1000E] (continue until you get a reply)
If it does not respond, verify that TCP/IP is enabled on the status sheet. If the status
sheet does not show the IP information, then repeat the above procedures.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-4
7.1.1.6Setting up IP Parameters
The EcoLAN 1000E provides for a setup connection via the standard Telnet port. To
be able to make changes to a unit with factory default settings, you must logon as
"sysadm". The default password is also "sysadm" (This password can be changed
from the Telnet utility). Section 7.4 Running Telnet on page 40 describes the use of the
Telnet utility.
1. Telnet to the EcoLAN 1000E (the login and password are both sysadm).
2. Turn off the protocols that you are not utilizing (option 3).
3. Setup the subnet mask and default gateway for the EcoLAN 1000E if applicable
(menu option 1). (If you used BOOTP, this will already have been done).
4. Exit, Save and Reset the EcoLAN 1000E.
You can also use the HTML pages accessible via MAP or a Web Browser to setup lpr.
The password to change parameters with the HTML pages is the same as the Telnet
password.
7.1.1.7Loading the lpr Spooler
The Windows lpr Spooler Version 4.1 - User’s Guide (wlprspl.txt) provides detailed
instructions for decompressing and installing the shareware lpr spooler.
7.1.1.8Creating an lpr Queue on the Workstation
Once you install the spooler onto the workstation, the setup program will create a
group and icon.
1. Double click on the spooler icon.
2. Click on setup, and define a new queue.
3. At the Remote Host Name prompt enter the EcoLAN 1000E IP Address. Enter

At this point, you should see an entry for your Windows lpr Spooler’s printer in the
"Available ports" listing. For example, C:\SPOOL\PRINTER_NAME.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-5
7.1.2 Microsoft Windows 95
Windows 95 comes with a TCP/IP stack. To print with this protocol, a client also
requires an lpr utility. This program is available from various sources. The lpr queue
can be created on each workstation or the lpr queue can be created on one workstation
and shared on the network. Windows 95 workstations can also share a lpr printer
installed on an Windows NT server on the network.
The following instructions are based on the a shareware lpr application that is
available from various sources, including Mita. You will need the wlprs41.zip and
wlprspl.txt for the lpr.
If you wish to use the Bootp Lite program, you will also need the ntBOOTP.exe file
provided with this EcoLAN 1000E on the Windows Setup Utilities diskette.
7.1.2.1 Setting up the EcoLAN 1000E with Windows 95

Use the procedures in 7.1.3.3 Assigning IP Address with ntBOOTP, if you prefer to
use a Windows based program to configure the IP address instead of the command line
utility ARP:
1. From Windows, enter the MS/DOS box. At the command prompt enter:
ping [any valid IP address on your network - not the print server]. The identified unit
should reply
arp -s [IP address of the EcoLAN 1000E] [MAC Address of the EcoLAN 1000E]. The
entry should be accepted
Note:
For Windows 95 users, the MAC address must be separated by a dash (-). For
example, 00-40-af-36-85-40.
For UNIX users, the MAC address must be separated by a colon (:). For example,
00:40:af:36:85:40.
ping [IP address of the EcoLAN 1000E]. Request should time out
2. Recycle the power on the printer or let the EcoLAN 1000E reset itself. The
EcoLAN 1000E will produce a status page that should include the entered IP
address.
3. When the EcoLAN 1000E is up again, at the command prompt, enter:
ping [IP address of EcoLAN 1000E] (continue until you get a reply).
Note:
This only enters the IP address; you must use the Telnet facility, the HTML pages
accessed by MAP, or Web Browser facility to enter the other IP parameters.
7.1.3.3Assigning IP Address with ntBOOTP
You may provide the IP address and other IP parameters to the printer EcoLAN 1000E
on 32 Bit TCP/IP Stack (Windows NT & Windows 95) using the ntBOOTP.exe
program.
This program uses the BOOTP protocol. The EcoLAN 1000E must be on the same
network segment as the workstation that you are using to configure it. The TCP/IP
stack must be installed and operating.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-10
The NT cannot be operating as an active DHCP Server.
1. From Windows Program Manager under File, select Run ntBOOTP.exe.
2. Pull down the Admin menu to Configure option.
3. Enter the IP address that you want to assign to the EcoLAN 1000E, its Subnet
Mask (make sure it matches what you are using on your subnet), Default Gateway
(your router’s IP address), and the MAC address of the EcoLAN 1000E (Hardware Address, listed on the Status sheet as Network Address). Use colons as
delimiters as shown on the status sheet rather than the dashes Windows uses.
4. Click on Go.
5. Wait about five minutes. The EcoLAN 1000E should recycle and produce a status
sheet showing the IP parameters you have just entered.
6. Pull down Admin menu to Verify. You should get a message back stating that the
Unit is Active. If you do not get this message, check that TCP/IP is enabled on the
status sheet
7. When you get a response that your unit is active, you should be able to ping and
Telnet to the EcoLAN 1000E.
7.1.3.4Setting up IP and lpr Parameters
The EcoLAN 1000E provides for a setup connection via the standard Telnet port. To
be able to make changes to a unit at factory default settings, you must logon as
sysadm. The default password is also "sysadm" (this password can be changed from
the Telnet utility). The use of the Telnet utility is described elsewhere.
1. Telnet to the EcoLAN 1000E (the login and password are both "sysadm").
2. Turn off the protocols that you are not utilizing (option 3).
3. Setup the subnet mask and default gateway for the EcoLAN 1000E if applicable
(option 1).
4. Exit, Save, and Reset the EcoLAN 1000E.
You can also use the HTML pages accessible via MAP or a Web Browser to set up lpr.
The password to change parameters with the HTML pages is the same as the Telnet
password.

1. Type: ftp <destination server ID>
2. Type: port1 (login using username of port number)
3. Type: put <filename>
The selected file is now sent to the printer.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-14
7. 3 UNIX Printing
The EcoLAN 1000E can support UNIX TCP/IP printing in two modes:
• Host-based lpd where a supplied line printer daemon is run on one or more
workstations and print data is communicated to the EcoLAN 1000E via a TCP/IP
port or,
• Printer-based lpd where the printer appears as a host running a line printer daemon.
In general, printer-based lpd is easiest to use on BSD UNIX systems, requiring an
entry in the printcap file once the EcoLAN 1000E has its IP information. Some UNIX
System V systems have restrictions on support of remote LPD printers, requiring that
the host-based LPD approach be used. For many operating systems, you have the
option of using host-resident printing or print server-resident printing. Each mode has
certain advantages.
• The host-resident method can print the username and filename on its banner page;
the print server-resident method prints a banner page with the host's name.
• The print server-resident method requires you to configure the printer only one
time, when you install the print server. The host-resident method requires that a
printing daemon be installed on every host that you want to be able to print jobs.
Note:
The EcoLAN 1000E will also operate with other host-resident print
supervisor/spooler programs that present a print image to the printer over a
TCP/IP port. The base TCP/IP port number can be changed via Telnet, or the NIC
HTML setup pages accessed by MAP or a Web Browser. Remember, the actual
port is always one higher than the base port number. The Network Status Page
indicates the actual port number.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-15
Between the host-based and printer-based TCP/IP printing capabilities, the EcoLAN
1000E works with:
• All UNIX systems that support lpd
• System V Rel. 4 (on 386 platforms)
• DEC ULTRIX RISC Versions 4.3 and 4.4
• DEC OSF/1 Versions 2.0 and 3.0
• Solaris:
Version 1.1.3 (SunOS 4.1.3),
Version 2.3 (SunOS 5.3),
Version 2.4, and
Version 2.5
• HP-UX Series 700 and 800 Version 9.01 and Version 10.0
• IBM AIX Version 3.2.5
• SCO UNIX Version 3.2
• AS400
The TCP/IP diskette also includes source code that you can recompile host-based code
for configuring on other System V platforms.
7.3.1 Configuring the IP Address on the EcoLAN 1000E
Regardless of the printing mode selected, the EcoLAN 1000E must be given IP
address and routing parameters. You can configure the IP address for the EcoLAN
1000E in one of the following ways:
• Use MAP, as described in Chapter 3.
• Use the AppleTalk KYOManage utility program, available from the Mita web site
as described in Chapter 6.
• Use the Internet Boot Protocol (BOOTP).
• Use the reverse ARP (rarp) capability (Ethernet II frame type only).
• Use arp and ping capability.
For each method, you will need to provide the Ethernet address of the EcoLAN
1000E. The Ethernet address is the 12-character code that is printed under Network
Address on the configuration status report each time the printer is turned on.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-16
You can use the BOOTP, rarp, or ping procedures only when the Print Server is in its
factory default state (no IP information entered.) After the Print Server has an IP
address, you must use the Telnet utility, the AppleTalk KYOManage utility for the
Macintosh, or the EcoLAN 1000E HTML management pages accessed through the
MAP utility or a Web Browser to change an IP address, Subnet Mask and Default
Gateway.
7.3.1.1Using BOOTP
The BOOTP daemon is a native TCP/IP option for configuring the IP address of a
diskless network device. To communicate the IP address, use the following
procedure:
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Log in as superuser on a host on the same subnet as the print server. However, if
the server resides on another subnet, complete this procedure to store the IP
address in the print server. Reconnect the print server anywhere on the network,
and then use Telnet or the HTML pages accessed by MAP or a Web Browser utility to change the IP address. See 7.4 Running Telnet on page 40 for instructions on
using Telnet.
3. Find the Ethernet address of the EcoLAN 1000E. The address is printed on the
configuration status report each time you turn the printer on.
4. Edit the hosts file (usually /etc/hosts) or use NIS or DIS to add the IP address and
EcoLAN 1000E's node name. See the network administrator for the IP address.
For example, a EcoLAN 1000E named printfast with an IP address of
192.9.200.200 has the following entry:
192.9.200.200 printfast
5. Stop the BOOTP daemon if it is running.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-17
6. Edit the /etc/BOOTPtab file and add the following information:
nic_host:\
:ht = hardware type:\
:ha = ethernet address:\
:ip = IP address:\
:sm = subnet mask:\
:gw = gateway address:
For example, for an RFC 1048 system:
printfast:\
:ht = ether:\
:ha = 0040AF03AF6E:\
:ip = 192.9.200.200:\
:sm = 255.0.0.0:\
:gw = 192.9.200.10:\
If running with a more recent BOOTP implementation, such as with SCO UNIX, add:
:vm = rfc1048:
The same information uses the following format on an RFC 951 system:
host
htype
haddr
iaddr
bootfile
printfast
1
00:40:af:03:af:6e
192.9.200.200
defaultboot
7. Start the BOOTP daemon by typing:
bootpd -s
8. Check the printer to verify that the EcoLAN 1000E is connected to the network.
Turn on the printer.
9. Wait until the printer powers up and finishes initializing to allow enough time for
the IP address to become known and to be saved in non-volatile memory. The
EcoLAN 1000E should reinitialize itself.
10. After the EcoLAN 1000E has reinitialize, send a ping command to verify that the
print server obtained its IP address. For example:
ping 192.9.200.200
If the print server has the address, the result is a confirmation message:
192.9.200.200 is alive
TCP/IP Configuration 7-18
11. Remove, or comment out, your changes to the /etc/BOOTPtab file.
12. Stop the BOOTP daemon and, if you want it to run, restart it.
7.3.1.2Using rarp
The Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (rarp) allows network devices to query a
server for their IP addresses on start-up. For this procedure, there needs to be a
workstation with a rarp server. To store the IP address, use the following procedure:
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Log in as superuser on the rarp server. However, if the server resides on another
subnet, complete this procedure to store the IP address in the print server. Reconnect the print server anywhere on the network, and then use the Telnet or the
HTML pages accessed by MAP or a Web Browser to adjust the IP parameters for
the subnet on which the EcoLAN 1000E is to operate.
3. Find the Ethernet address of the EcoLAN 1000E. The address is listed as Network Address on the configuration status report when you power on the printer.
4. Edit the hosts file (usually /etc/hosts) or use NIS or DIS to add the IP Address and
EcoLAN 1000E’s node name. See the network administrator for the IP address.
For example, a print server with the name of printfast has the following entry:
192.9.200.200 printfast
5. Edit the /etc/ethers file or use NIS or DIS to add the Ethernet address. To continue
the example, for the printfast card with an Ethernet address of 00:40:c8:00:00:ff,
make the following entry:
0:40:c8:0:0:ff printfast
6. If the rarp daemon is running, stop it and restart it. Verify that the daemon is running.
7. Check the printer to see that the print server is connected to the network. Turn on
the printer.
8. Wait until the printer powers up and finishes initializing to allow enough time for
the IP address to become known and to be saved in non-volatile memory. The
EcoLAN 1000E should then reset itself.
9. After the EcoLAN 1000E has reset, send a ping command to verify that the print
server obtained its IP address. For example:
ping 192.9.200.200
If the print server has the address, the result is a confirmation message:
192.9.200.200 is alive
10. Remove, or comment out, your changes to the /etc/ethers file.
11. Stop the rarp daemon and, if you want it to run, restart it.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-19
7.3.1.3Using ping
Use the following procedure to enter the IP Address:
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Log in as superuser on a host on the same subnet as the print server. However, if
the server resides on another subnet, complete this procedure to store the IP
address in the print server. Reconnect the print server anywhere on the network,
and then use Telnet or the HTML pages accessed by MAP or a Web Browser utility to change the IP address. See 7.4 Running Telnet on page 40 for instructions on
using Telnet.
3. Find the Ethernet address of the EcoLAN 1000E. The address is listed as Network
Address on the configuration status report each time you turn the printer on.
4. Edit the hosts file (usually /etc/hosts) or use NIS or DIS to add the IP address and
[print server's node name. See the network administrator for the IP address. For
example, a print server with a name of printfast and an IP address of
192.9.200.200 has the following entry:
192.9.200.200 printfast
5. Add an entry to the arp cache for the Print Server's IP address and Ethernet
address. For example:
arp -s 192.9.200.200 0:40:c8:0:0:ff
6. Check the printer to see that the Print Server is connected to the network. Turn on
the printer.
7. Send a ping command the EcoLAN 1000E to verify it is running on the network.
For example:
ping 192.9.200.200 or
ping printfast
The EcoLAN 1000E will not respond to this ping command but it will read its IP
address from the packets.
8. Turn the printer off and back on again and then send the ping command again to
verify that the print server obtained its IP address. If the Print Server has the
address, the result is a confirmation message:
192.9.200.200 is alive
9. Remove the entry from the arp cache using the following command. Specify the
Print Server either by its IP address or by its name. For example:
arp -d printfast
TCP/IP Configuration 7-20
7.3.2 lpd Printing
lpd is an implementation of the standard UNIX line printer daemon which lets you
print across a TCP/IP network without the need to install software on your workstation
with all filtering and banners done by EcoLAN 1000E. Remote printing uses the same
commands (lpr, lpq, lpc) as local printing.
The process begins when the lpr call finds a printer on a remote system by looking at
the remote (rm) entry in the /etc/printcap file for that printer. lpr handles a print job for
a remote printer by opening a connection with the lpd process on the remote system
and sending the data file (followed by the control file containing control information
for this job) to the remote system. The printer-based lpd then filters the data and prints
the job according to information contained in the control file and its own printcap file.
EcoLAN 1000E lpd recognizes the format of a certain printer emulations and filters
the data, if possible, so it can be printed on the printer type you specify. You can
indicate to the EcoLAN 1000E lpd what type of printer is attached to by either:
1. Accepting the default port setting (PCL, PostScript and other), or
2. Changing the listed emulations via the Telnet or the HTML pages accessed by
MAP or a Web Browser utility.
The following sections give specifics lpd setup instructions for various systems.
7.3.2.1 Setting Up a BSD Remote Printer to Use lpd
To set up a remote printer on the host that sends jobs to EcoLAN 1000E using printer
resident lpd, add an entry to the /etc/printcap file on your host for each printer you use.
The steps are described below.
1. Open the /etc/printcap file. Make an entry naming the EcoLAN 1000E as the
remote host and PORT1 as the remote printer name. A typical printcap entry is
shown below:
<printer_name>\
(for example, lprprinter)
:lp=:\
:rm=<remote_host>:\
(for example, name as entered in /etc/hosts)
:rp=PORT1:\
:sd=/usr/spool/lpd/<printer_name>:
(for example, spool directory on system used to spool data and control files)
TCP/IP Configuration 7-21
This entry will send jobs spooled at /usr/spool/lpd/<printer_name> to the printer
designated <printer_name> to be printed at port 1 (the internal connection to the
printer) of the EcoLAN 1000E designated as <remote_host>.
2. Create the spooling directory. For example, type:
mkdir /usr/spool/lpd/<printer_name>
3. To print via the spooler, use the lpr command. Type:
lpr-P <printer_name>< file_name>
Installation and testing is done. You are now ready to print.
7.2.2.2Setting Up an AIX Version 2.5 Remote Printer to Use lpd

various UNIX systems. This section describes how to install TCP/IP printing to the
EcoLAN 1000E on any of the following operating systems:
• DEC ULTRIX 4.3 RISC
• System V Rel. 4
• Solaris (Ver. 1.x, 2.x)
• SCO UNIX
• OSF1/ALPHA
• IBM AIX
• HP/UX
Once the EcoLAN 1000E has its IP information loaded, the following steps are
necessary for Host-Side TCP/IP printing:
1. Load the print server software on your workstation. It is presented as a tar file on
the TCP/IP diskette.
2. Run the appropriate installation script, if available.
3. Complete the configuration for your operating system.
7.3.3.1Loading the Software
The following procedures are only necessary when using the supplied host-based lpr
capability. Loading the software is not necessary if printer-based lpr is used.
Important:
The host-based lpr requires a TCP/IP port number of 9100. The default port
number for the EcoLAN 1000E is 9100. Please use Telnet, the MAP utility,
or a Web Browser to change the port number. In the configuration utilities
the port number is set to one less than the desired port number. For example,
for port 9100, enter 10000. The EcoLAN 1000E Network Status Page
displays the actual port number in use.
1. Log in as superuser to the system that spools directly to the print server.
2. Insert the print server's TCP/IP diskette in the host drive.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-28
3. Go to or create the directory in which you want to install the software. For
example:
mkdir /usr/PSC_install
Note:
If you already have a EcoLAN 1000E printer at your site and you are now installing another one, delete the files in the installation directory (not /usr/nic). If these
files remain, they can prevent the installation of a subsequent print server.
4. Use the tar command to load the software from the diskette. Choose your UNIX
version from the example from the following table, or if not shown, consult the
man page for your system:
Note:
UNIX Version
Example
BSD/ULTRIX/AIX/SCO
tar -xvf/dev/rfd0
System V
tar -xvf/dev/rdsk/f13ht
System V/Solaris 2.3
tar -xvf/dev/rdiskette
The device name varies depending on the computer and its peripheral
designations. The first BSD floppy device is often called rfd0.
5. After performing the tar, the system will display a list of EcoLAN 1000E files
copied by the tar. At this point, go to the specific section for your system for
instructions on running the installation script.
7.3.3.2Script Selection of Filters
There will be certain options in executing the script for various systems.
One of the questions posed by the install script is whether the printer is a PostScript
printer. If you answered no to this question, the install script uses an input filter
(infilter) that supplies CR/LF translation to print ASCII files on a PCL printer. If you
answered yes to this question, your printcap file will reference psfilter which offers
easy ASCII-to-PostScript conversion. Normal PostScript format files are not affected.
Proprietary and public domain filters are available for broader filtering capabilities.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-29
7.3.3.3Manual Selection of Filters
The EcoLAN 1000E ships with an input filter called psfilter and an output filter called
psbanner to print PostScript banners.
You may wish to change infilter or outfilter entries in the /etc/printcap file. The
following is a sample printcap entry using these filters:
<print_name> | EcoLan 1000E printer:\
:lp=/dev/nic/<printer_name>:\
:if=/usr/nic/psfilter:\
:of=/usr/nic/psbanner:\
:sd=/usr/spool/<printer_name>:
7.3.3.4Installing and Printing on Ver. 1 Solaris and OSF1 Systems
1. Run the Installation script by typing: nicinst.
The script automatically downloads the correct EcoLAN 1000E utilities for your particular system and prompts you for information as needed.
2. What is the node name of the Print Server unit?
Type the node name entered in /etc/hosts. For example: printfast and press ENTER.
3. What is the printer name?
Type the desired printer name and press ENTER.
4. Your screen will now display the information you provided to the install script.
For example:
Node name of the EcoLAN 1000E: printfast
Printer name to be used: <printer_name>
The printer is attached on: PORT 1
You are asked to OK this configuration. Type yes or no and press ENTER.
5. Is this printer PostScript?
Type yes or no and press ENTER.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-30
6. The script creates a printcap entry for the printer just configured. The screen displays the entry and asks if you want the script to append it to your /etc/printcap
file. See below for a sample printcap file. Type yes or no and press ENTER. If
you type no, you may perform manual edits.
In your /etc/printcap file, be sure not to change the name of the device given EcoLAN
1000E in Step 2. You must reference the same lp: entry you wrote on the lp command
line of the printcap file. For example:
<printer_name> | ´coLAN 1000E printer:\
:lp=/dev/<printer_name>:\
:if=/usr/nic/infilter:\
:sd=/usr/spool/<printer_name>:
All printcap entries must be prefaced with a tab except for the entry on the first line.
7. The script creates a spool directory in /usr/spool and starts the daemon for the
newly configured printer. It also displays the path used if you ever need to restart
the daemon. For example:
/usr/nic/lpr_print /dev/nic/<printer_name> printfast 9100 &
8. Run the ps command so that you can view all your lpd processes.
Type: ps -ax | grep lpd
9. Kill all of your lpd processes. Type: kill -9 <Process ID> (this will stop ALL
printing).
10. Restart the daemon.
Type: /usr/lib/lpd
11. Installation for the system is done. You are prompted to configure any more printers.
Type yes or no and press ENTER. We also suggest you ping the EcoLAN 1000E to test
communications.
7.3.3.5Installing & Printing on an DEC ULTRIX 4.3 System
1.
Run the Installation script by typing: nicinst.
The script automatically downloads the correct EcoLAN 1000E utilities for your particular system and prompts you for information as needed.
2. What is the node name of the Print Server unit?
Type the node name entered in /etc/hosts. For example, printfast and press ENTER.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-31
3. What is the printer name?
Type the desired printer name and press ENTER.
4. Your screen will now display the information you provided to the install script.
For example:
Node name of the EcoLAN 1000E: printfast
Printer name to be used:<printer_name>
The printer is attached on:PORT 1
You are asked to OK this configuration. Type yes or no
and press ENTER.
5. Is this printer PostScript?
Type yes or no and press ENTER.
6. The script creates a printcap entry for the printer just configured. The screen displays the entry and asks if you want the script to append it to your /etc/printcap
file. See below for a sample printcap file. Type yes or no and press ENTER. If
you type no, you may perform manual edits.
<printer_name> | EcoLAN 1000E printer:\
:lp=/dev/<printer_name>:\
:if=/usr/nic/infilter:\
:sd=/usr/spool/<printer_name>:
7. Installation for the system is done. The program prompts you to configure any
more printers. Type yes or no and press ENTER. We suggest pinging the
EcoLAN 1000E to test communications.
Like all BSD systems, ULTRIX uses the /etc/printcap file to configure a printer. The
interface to the installation script is the same for all BSD systems, however, the
printcap entry is different.
If you use the printcap entry generated automatically by the installation script, this
will be transparent to you.
7.3.3.6Installing and Printing on the HP/UX System
1.
Run the Installation script by typing: nicinst.
The script automatically downloads the correct EcoLAN 1000E utilities for your particular system and prompts you for information as needed.
2. What is the node name of the Print Server unit?
Type the node name entered in /etc/hosts. For example, printfast and press ENTER.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-32
3. What is the printer name?
Type the desired printer name and press ENTER.
Your screen will now display the information you provided to the install script. For example:
Node name of the EcoLAN 1000E: printfast
Printer name to be used: <printer_name>
The printer is attached on: PORT 1
You are asked to OK this configuration. Type yes or no and press ENTER.
4. The script starts the daemon for the newly configured printer automatically. It also
displays the path used should you ever need to restart the daemon. In the following example, the path would be:
/usr/nic/lpr_print /dev/nic/printer_name printfast 9100 &
This example reflects names supplied to the script earlier.
When the installation script is complete, you must configure the printer and make it
known to the lp system. The HP/UX lp system uses the lpadmin maintenance
command to configure a printer (there is not a /etc/printcap file). The specific
commands to do this are:
lpadmin -p printer_name -v /dev/nic/printer_name
enable printer_name
accept printer_name
You can also use other options for the lpadmin command. See your system
documentation for details.
Note:
The printer name must be the same as the one you entered during the EcoLAN
1000E installation. HP supplies the sam program as an alternative to configure the
printer.
When using sam, specify everything as if the printer were directly connected
to /dev/lprprinter/printer_name.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-33
The software installed with your HP system can satisfy most of your printing needs.
HP supplies ASCII-to-PostScript filters and the system will invoke them automatically
if you define the content type of the printer as PostScript. The HP/UX lp system also
supplies interface scripts that produce PostScript banners. Use the lpfilter command
to define new filters and content types if necessary. The full power and flexibility of
the lp print service is now available to you. The fact that you are printing across the
network is completely transparent.
7.3.3.7Installing and Printing on a System V (Solaris Ver. 2)/System V Rel. 4
386-based Machine
Installation and setup is exactly the same for System V Solaris and SVR4 i386-based
machines. Solution uses a network direct filter called nicfilter. The system invokes
nicfilter directly from the printer interface file. To load the software, create a /usr/nic
directory and tar the TCP/IP diskette to it.
1. Go to the /usr/nic directory by entering the following:
cd /usr/nic
2. Run the Installation script by typing: nicinst.
Once the operating system has been identified, the script downloads the files for your
particular system, to the /usr/nic directory, and prompts you for information as needed.
3. Type cd /usr/spool/lp/model/standard/usr/nic/port1_interface
Note:
Use of this default interface in most cases will suffice for generic or routine printing of most PostScript, PCL, and ASCII files. In order to utilize a printer specific
interface other than the default interface script (named standard), you must have a
copy of that printer interface edited and installed in the /usr/nic directory.
Next, you will need to edit the printer interface program you created in step 3.
4. Type: cd /usr/nic and using your favorite editor, open and edit the port1_interface
file.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-34
5. Search on FILTER=" and insert the following line above or below the #
FILTER="${LPCAT} section of the file. Remark out (using the # sign) any other
FILTER entries present in this section of the file.
FILTER="/usr/nic/infilter| /usr/nic/nicfilter printer server name 9100"
Note:
The <print server name> must be the same as the one present in the /etc/hosts file.
Optional arguments to be inserted after the 9100 entry and before the
trailing " are ${banner}, ${user_name}, ${request_ID}, and ${files}. For further
explanation of these and the statement above, refer to the System 5 Release 4 System Administration Manual.
6. Save the file and close the editor.
You need to configure the host-side printer using lpadmin.
7. Type the following:
lpadmin -p <printer name> -v /dev/null -i /usr/nic/port1_interface
Note:
lpadmin configures the peinter name and associates it with a given device and
printer interface program. There is no /etc/printcap file involved with this method
of configuration.
Next, you need to initialize the printer
8. Type the following commands:
accept <printer name> and press ENTER.
enable <printer name> and press ENTER.
Note:
After each entry, lpadmin should provide an acknowledgement of the command
invoked.
9. Type the command:
lp -d <printer name> /etc/hosts, and press ENTER.
10. Check for output, or type the following:
lpstat <printer name> or -t.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-35
7.3.3.8Installing & Printing on a SCO UNIX System
Installation and setup is similar for HP/UX and SCO UNIX systems. The EcoLAN
1000E solution uses a network direct filter called nicfilter. The system invokes
nicfilter directly from the printer interface file.
After completing software download in Section 7.3.3.1 Loading the Software on page
28 you must configure the printer and make it known to the lp system. Follow the
steps below:
1.
Run the Installation script by typing: nicinst.
The script automatically downloads the correct EcoLAN 1000E utilities for your particular system and prompts you for information as needed.
2. Select your system. Choose one from these options:
1) AT&T/SVR4; 386
2) SCO UNIX System V
3) None of the above
Type 1, 2, or 3 and press ENTER.
3. What is the node name of the EcoLAN 1000E?
Type the name assigned in the /etc/hosts file and press ENTER. For example, printfast
4. What is the printer name for this EcoLAN 1000E-linked printer?
Type a printer name and press ENTER.
5. Your screen will now display the information you provided the install script. For
example:
Node name of the EcoLAN 1000E: printfast
Printer name to be used: <printer_name>
The printer is attached on: PORT 1
Do you want to accept this configuration? Type yes or no and press ENTER.
6. Is this printer PostScript?
Type yes or no and press ENTER.
7. The script automatically starts the daemon for the newly configured printer . It
also displays the path used should you ever need to restart the daemon. In the preceding example, the path would be:
/usr/nic/lpr_print /dev/nic/printer_name printfast
9100 &
This example reflects names supplied the script earlier.
When the installation script is complete, you must still configure the printer and make
it known to the lp system.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-36
The SCO UNIX lp system uses the lpadmin maintenance command to configure a
printer (there is no /etc/printcap file). The specific commands to do this are:
lpadmin -p printer_name -v /dev/nic/printer_name
Note:
Your host may require you to specify the model by using the -i command.
enable printer_name
accept printer_name
You can also use other options for the lpadmin command. See your system
documentation for details. Note that the printer name must be the same as the one you
entered during EcoLAN 1000E installation. SCO supplies the sam program as an
alternative to configure the printer.
When using sam, specify everything as if the printer were directly connected to /dev/
nic/printer_name.
The software installed with your SCO system can satisfy most of your printing needs.
SCO supplies ASCII-to-PostScript filters and the system will invoke them
automatically if you define the content type of the printer as PostScript. The SCO
UNIX lp system also supplies interface scripts that produce PostScript banners. Use
the lpfilter command to define new filters and content types if necessary. The full
power and flexibility of the lp print service is now apparent. Your printing across the
network is completely transparent.
7.3.3.9Installing and Printing on an AIX RISC System/6000
The AIX printing subsystem is driven by the qdaemon program. The qdaemon uses
configuration information stored in the /usr/lpd/qconfig file to manage queues and
route jobs to the proper devices. This information includes entries for each virtual
printer and physical device known to the system.
An AIX virtual printer is simply a high level software view of a data stream, queue,
and device that controls how a given job will be processed. A different virtual printer
should be defined for each data stream that a real printer supports. For example, you
would use different virtual printers for PostScript and PCL jobs even though they are
destined for the same physical printer.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-37
Configuring a EcoLAN 1000E printer on an AIX system approximates configuration
of a local printer as closely as possible. The only difference is that the physical device
associated with your EcoLAN 1000E printer must be a named pipe used by the print
daemon to route data to EcoLAN 1000E. The most straightforward way to add a
printer to your system is:
1. Run the Install script by typing: nicinst.
The script automatically downloads the correct EcoLAN 1000E utilities for your particular system and prompts you for information as needed.
2. What is the node name of the Print Server unit?
Type the node name entered in /etc/hosts, for example: printfast and press ENTER.
3. What is the printer name?
Type the desired printer name and press ENTER.
4. Your screen will now display the information you provided to the install script.
For example:
Node name of the EcoLAN 1000E: printfast
Printer name to be used: <printer_name>
The printer is attached on: PORT 1
You are asked to OK this configuration. Type yes or no and press ENTER.
5. Configure a virtual printer using printer_name as the physical device, where
printer_name is the same printer name chosen during install.
6. Shut down the qdaemon using the command
stopsrc -s qdaemon
7. Edit /usr/lpd/qconfig to change the special file for device printer_name from /dev/
printer_name to /dev/nic/printer_name.
8. Restart the daemon with:
startsrc -s daemon."
The installation script then will create the named pipe and starts the supplied print
daemon using the printer name and EcoLAN 1000E information you supplied. Since
the AIX System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) will not accept a named pipe as a
printer device, the installation script also creates a null character device in /dev/
printer_name.
TCP/IP Configuration 7-38
7.3.3.9.1
Virtual Printer Commands
Virtual printers can be added either through SMIT or through the mkvirprt command,
entering the device name printer_name for configuration purposes. During this
process you also select a particular printer type for the new printer, which inherits the
set of predefined attributes for that printer type. In most cases, this set of attributes will
be sufficient, but it can be changed either through SMIT or by using the chvirprt
command. If you need more extensive changes on your printer, see the AIX RISC
System/6000 documentation for assistance. After the virtual printer has been added,
there will be a stanza in /usr/lpd/qconfig for device printer_name that looks like the
following:
printer_name:
file=/dev/printer_name
backend=/usr/lpd/piobe
Edit /usr/qconfig and change
file=/dev/printer_name to file=/dev/nic/printer_name.
Output spooled on the virtual printer as defined above, will now be sent to the named
pipe and routed to EcoLAN 1000E. Before you edit the files above, be sure that the
following deamon is running:
/usr/nic/lpr_print /dev/nic/printer_name printfast 9100 &
7.3.3.9.2
AIX Print Commands
The AIX lp command works slightly differently than the lp command for other
System V Release 4 systems. The following lp commands can be used to print files:
lp -d <queue_name> <filename> or
lp -d <queue_name>:<device_name> <file_name>
TCP/IP Configuration 7-39
7.4 Running Telnet
The Telnet utility uses the standard remote terminal protocol to configure the IP
address, lpd printers, and other parameters on your system. Use the following
guidelines to run Telnet. You have the same functionality with the HTML pages
accessed by MAP or a Web Browser, as described ion Chapter 3.
• Most often, you make selections from menus by toggling between one choice or
another, by selecting/deselecting or enabling/disabling an item.
• Press Enter, when not selecting an item. This will return you to a previous menu.
• If you do not make a menu selection for 2 minutes, you get a "Two Minute
Warning" that within 2 more minutes your Telnet session will end. This ensures
that one user does not leave a session idle for too long.

configuration of the print server immediately before the report is printed. The Status
report may also be printed from the printers’s front panel by pressing the Status key.
It is strongly recommended that you review this report immediately after installation
and any time the setup has been changed. If the report does not include a protocol that
was configured, check that the procedure was done properly.

Resetting the Print Server to Factory Default
You can cause the EcoLAN 1000E to restore all parameters to factory default values,
so the EcoLAN 1000E appears just as it came from the factory. You may choose to do
this when the EcoLAN 1000E is moved to a new location where the environment
(AppleTalk network zones, NetWare file servers, IP subnets, and so on ) is different.
This process is called "Reset to Factory". It can be done with the standard Telnet or
HTML (accessed via MAP or a Web Browser) utility. However, if network access is
not possible, the following method may be used.
Note:
Resetting to factory default means that the print server loses all data such as
names and IP addresses. It does not lose its serial number or MAC address.
To reset the print server card:
1. Power off the printer and remove the EcoLAN 1000E from the printer. The
removal process is the reverse of the installation process in Chapter 2.
2. Locate the Reset Jumper. It is labeled JP12. See diagram in Appendix A.
3. Move this jumper to the ON position, so that the jumper covers the center pin and
the pin nearest the jumper designator.
4. Install the EcoLAN 1000E as shown in Chapter 2. Do not connect the printer to
the network.
5. Power on the printer. The EcoLAN 1000E performs its diagnostic self tests — the
green LED blinks 3 times then goes into an alternating green/amber light
sequence. When you see this pattern, power off the printer.
6. Remove the EcoLAN 1000E from the printer.
7. Move the JP12 jumper to its OFF position, so that the jumper covers the center
pin and the pin nearest the OFF designation.
8. Reinstall the EcoLAN 1000E according to Chapter 2.
Operation and Troubleshooting 8-4
8.4 How to Diagnose Problems
Use the following list to determine the cause of printing problems:
1. Verify that the printer is functioning properly.
• Is the printer printing? Make sure the printer is operating properly by causing it to
generate a test page. See your printer's owner's manual for instructions on
generating a test page.
• Is the printer on-line? Verify that the printer is on-line or else nothing will print.
• Does the control panel display an error message? Review the printer documentation
for an explanation of the error messages.
• Did you get a EcoLAN 1000E status page? On power-up, the Print Server sends a
status page which may contain information that can be useful for troubleshooting.
Keep the status page available until a problem is resolved.
Note:
The start-up Configuration and Status Page from the EcoLAN 1000E may be
disabled via the maintenance access provisions.
2. Check the Print Server Card's LED status indicator to ensure that there is no error
condition. See 8.1 LED Status Indicator, for more information.
3. Check the status report to see what protocols are enabled and active. See the
appropriate chapter to confirm that you have installed and configured your
network protocol correctly for the EcoLAN 1000E. See 8.2 Status Report, for an
example of the status report.
4. If you added, changed, or removed any new hardware on the network, verify that
it was installed correctly.
5. If you added any new software applications, make sure the program is compatible
and installed correctly on the network. See your network protocol documentation
to confirm.
6. Determine if other users can print. If they can't and they are all on the same NOS,
go to the troubleshooting section for that NOS.
When you have determined the nature of the problem, use the checklists in the next
section.
Operation and Troubleshooting 8-5
8.5 Troubleshooting Checklists
Use the checklists in this section to identify and solve problems.
8.5.1 Troubleshooting Network Hardware Connections
Be sure that the EcoLAN 1000E has properly selected the connector type that you are
using. The connector type is listed on the status/configuration report: 10BaseT or
Thinnet.
• For Thinnet, check that network connector is plugged into the BNC connector on
the EcoLAN 1000E. If the printer is at the end of a run, ensure that a 50-ohm
terminator is installed.
• For 10BaseT, check that the network connector is plugged into the RJ connector on
the EcoLAN 1000E.
• Try another cable to make sure you do not have a bad cable.
If you are using a 10BaseT concentrator hub that does not support the link signal, use
Manual Ethernet Port selection instead of the factory default of Automatic Ethernet
Port selection. Refer to Appendix A.
8.5.2 Troubleshooting NetWare Protocol
It is recommended you use MAP to get the NetWare setup and parameter values. If
you have not resolved the problem after running MAP, go through the checklists in
this section.
8.5.2.1
NetWare Checklist
• Is the print server name entered correctly? The factory-default name is XXX_serial
number, where XXX is a three-letter designation for the manufacturer. The serial
number is located on the card.
• Did you assign print queues to the printer? It is recommended you assign each print
queues to only one EcoLAN 1000E-connected printer. If print queues are assigned
to other network printers, the print jobs may be going to an other network printer.
• Did you assign the printer to the type Remote Other /Unknown?
Operation and Troubleshooting 8-6
If the PCONSOLE settings are correct, the connection between the printer and
network may have been broken. Turn the printer off and, using PCONSOLE, wait for
the status message Not Connected. Turn the printer on and the status should change to
Waiting for Job.
8.5.2.2
File Server Checklist
• Is there enough disk space on the file server and is it running?
• Is the correct file server associated with the printer? Use PCONSOLE to check
this.
• Did you have the proper rights to configure the printer?
• Are the File Server and the Print Server communicating? Run NetWare’s
COMCHECK utility from any network workstation to check this.
• Are there enough user positions on the File Server? The Print Server function logs
on as a user.
8.5.2.3
Workstation Checklist
• Is the network loaded onto the workstation? See the NetWare documentation.
• Is the application set up to print to the printer? For instance, are you using the
correct driver?
• Is the workstation connected to the correct print queue? Print a file and verify that
the file goes to the queue.
• Are the print queues assigned to the EcoLAN 1000E-connected printer also
assigned to another network printer? If they are, the print jobs may be going to that
printer.
• From PCONSOLE, enter a sample print job directly into an assigned queue. Does
the job become Active? Is job printed?
• Is AUTO ENDCAP enabled? Auto Endcap lets you send data to a network printer.
Use PRINTCON to check. If not, enable it.
8.5.2.4
EcoLAN 1000E Configuration Checklist
If all your hardware connections are correct, check the following:
• Use MAP to check the status of the print server. The Report Print Server Status
screen shows the status for the selected network interface card. This report includes
a status of file servers and queues assigned to a printer along with a description of
any problems.
Operation and Troubleshooting 8-7
• The printer may not be assigned to the correct print queues. Use PCONSOLE to
direct print jobs to the correct queues, then check to see if the print job is in the
queue.
• If devices were added or changed, use PCONSOLE to make sure you configured
the new devices correctly.
• Make sure the EcoLAN 1000E's name has been entered correctly. If you changed
the name in MAP, you must also change the name in PCONSOLE before you can
print.
• Use PCONSOLE to check the Printer Status. Make sure it is not stopped or paused.
• You cannot use PCONSOLE Version 1.0 to configure the network interface card.
Contact Novell for an upgrade.
8.5.2.5
Printer Server/File Server/Printer Checklist
Check the following to see if:
• The EcoLAN 1000E can not log into the file server, or cannot service jobs from a
File Server.
• The Print Server name is listed on that File Server, or cannot service jobs from a
File Server.
• The password assigned to the EcoLAN 1000E through PCONSOLE matches the
password assigned through MAP. Use MAP to update the password stored in the
network Print Server’s memory.
• The print job is in the print queue and waiting to be printed. Use PCONSOLE to
check if the print jobs are being sent to the printer.
8.5.2.6
Workstation to EcoLAN 1000E Connection Checklist
To make sure the workstation is communicating with the EcoLAN 1000E, check the
following:
• Print a file from the workstation and make sure the print job gets to the print queue
using PCONSOLE. If the print job does get to the queue, the problem is not with
the workstation/print server connection.
• Use CAPTURE to send data to the printer from a workstation software application.
See your NetWare print server manual for information.
• Make sure another printer is not taking the print jobs from the queues BEFORE the
EcoLAN 1000E can service the job. To do this, disable the other printer until you
can verify the EcoLAN 1000E-connected printer setup.
Operation and Troubleshooting 8-8
8.5.2.7
EcoLAN 1000E Loses Its File Server Connection
If the EcoLAN 1000E loses its connection to the file server, it can take approximately
5 to 10 minutes to reconnect. If the connection is not made after a reasonable amount
of time, check the error conditions to troubleshoot the problem.
8.5.2.8
Unable to Print from a Different Context
The EcoLAN 1000E does not support printing from a context different from the
context you are installed upon. If you want to do this, you must create an alias queue.
See your NetWare Manual for more information.
8.5.3 Troubleshooting AppleTalk Protocol
• Is the Macintosh computer connected to the network through Ethernet, and, has the
Macintosh AppleTalk driver been selected? Go to the Control Panel, then go to
Networks to check.
• Did you select the correct EcoLAN 1000E and correct zone?
• Is AppleTalk enabled on the Macintosh? Use Chooser to check this.
• If you are on a network with multiple zones, is the zone correct?
• Did you select the correct printer driver in Chooser? You must first select the printer
icon and then select the printer name.
Note:
Not all printers will communicate with the default Macintosh driver.
• If you renamed the printer in the AppleTalk NIManage for Macintosh Program, did
you reselect the printer under its new name?
• If you placed the printer in a new zone, did you reselect the zone?
• Are other printers with similar names in Chooser? Make sure you chose the
EcoLAN 1000E-connected printer.

Appendix A
Jumper Settings
The print server will normally automatically configure the network configuration
without the need to access internal jumpers. However, there are certain jumpers on the
board that you may have to access under certain circumstances. If you need to change
the jumpers, follow the steps in this section.
HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
FOR
STATIC SENSITIVE DEVICES
The EcoLAN 1000E is normally contained within the printer which acts to protect
sensitive components from damage due to electrostatic discharge (ESD) during
normal operation. When performing installation procedures, however, take proper
static control precautions to prevent damage to equipment.
Make sure you do not have the printer plugged into a wall outlet. If it is, unplug the
power cord BEFORE you open the unit. Remove the EcoLAN 1000E according to the
printer instructions.
Jumper Settings Appendix A- 1
A.1 Print Server Boards and Jumper Locations
The illustration below shows the location of each of the jumpers on the Ethernet
EcoLAN 1000E.
Note:
The bold print indicates the default pin positions.
Jumper Settings Appendix A- 2
A.2 Ethernet Jumpers
There are two jumpers that affect Ethernet operations: Automatic/Manual (JP4),
Automatic Sensing (JP3).
The Automatic/Manual jumper causes the EcoLAN 1000E to select Ethernet
network type automatically when not in the MA position. In the MA position, the
selection is covered by the Manual Selection jumper.
Jumper Settings Appendix A- 3
The Manual Select jumper allows the user to force the EcoLAN 1000E to operate
from the indicated connector. Note that with the Manual-10BaseT connection, the
card will operate 10BaseT without the support of the LINK connect signal.
The Collision Threshold jumper is for Thinnet interfaces only. The 10BaseT Ethernet
interface does not use this jumper. The default setting is Transmit Threshold (jumper
adjacent to panel). You may wish to change this jumper to Receive Threshold if you
are using the Thinnet interface and you wish to adjust the collision threshold.
Jumper Settings Appendix A- 4
A.3 Reset to Factory Default (JP12)
The EcoLAN 1000Emay be restored to factory default conditions by jumper (JP12).
The function of JP12 is to reconfigure NVRAM. This is done when a unit is moved
from one site to another and should be restored to as "as-new" condition.
If the unit is powered up with a jumper in the ON position, the board will go into a
"reset all parameters to Factory Default" state. This will be indicated by the three
quick green flashes followed by the flashing green indications. This indicator
sequence means that the NVRAM parameters have been reset to factory default
values. Now turn off power and shift the jumper to the OFF pins. The unit will
operate normally when you turn the power on again.
A.4 Non-Persistant IP (JP8)
If JP8 is in the ON position, the print server card will not use the stored IP address, but will
search for an IP address assignment from a server on the network each time it is powered
up. If JP8 is in the OFF position, the print server card will store any assigned IP address in
NVRAM and will use this address each time it is powered up.
