Congratulations on purchasing Hawking’s HWPS12UG 1-Port
Parallel + 2 USB Ports Wireless G Print Server.
The Hawking
HWPS12UG is a powerful and convenient network printing solution
that will connect your USB and parallel printers to your network. The
HWPS12UG has a 10/100Mbps auto-sensing port, allowing you to
attach it to a 10Base-T or 100Base-TX network without the need for a
dedicated PC print server. The HWPS12UG also supports multiple
servers and multiple protocols, providing you with the capability to
print from anywhere, from any computer and from any application.

1.
Connect the HWPS12UG Print Server to a network.
2.
Connect the HWPS12UG Print Server to your printer(s).
3.
Plug the AC power adapter into the power slot on the
side of the Print Server.
Check the LED’s marked as Power, LAN, and WLAN on
the front of the Print Server. They should start to flash while
doing a routine diagnostic test and printer check. If not,
please contact your local dealer for repair or replacement.
You must use the power adapter shipped along with the print
server.
Do NOT use any other power adapter from other
sources.
Please note that your HWPS12UG hardware is automatically set to a
factory default IP address of 192.168.1.250

LED Indicators
The HWPS12UG is equipped with
LED lights to assist in diagnosing
print server or network errors.
Power
This light will illuminate when the HWPS12UG has sufficient power
and the power adapter is plugged into the HWPS12UG. When the
print server unit is powered on, the Power LED along with either the
LAN LED or the WLAN LED will flash as part of the unit’s Power
On Self Test (POST). This indicates that the print server hardware
is properly configured. The HWPS12UG may take up to 1 minute to
perform its internal diagnostic tests.
LAN
This light will illuminate and flash when the HWPS12UG detects
10M or 100M data transmissions over the network.
Printer Port 1, 2, or 3 (P1, U2, U3)
This set of lights will illuminate and flash when the HWPS12UG
detects a printer attached to any of the 3 printer ports. Please note
port number from the back panel of the HWPS12UG.
Wireless
The wireless light indicates that the HWPS12UG is sending and
receiving wireless information.
When the wireless light is flashing,
wireless mode is enabled.
Please note that the Reset button is located on the back of the HWPS12UG. Hold this
button down for more then 5 seconds to reset the print server into factory default mode.

IPP Printing
The IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) provides you with a convenient
method for remote printing jobs via the TCP/IP protocol. The
HWPS12UG 10/100M 2 USB Ports + 1-port Parallel Wireless G Print
Server can support IPP printing capabilities. It is not necessary to
modify any of the print server’s internal settings to use the IPP
printing features. Windows 2000 and Windows XP computers can
use IPP printing functions through the operating system’s internal IPP
functionality.
IPP printing will let you share your network printer
with any PC that can access the HWPS12UG print server by IP. You
can even share your printer with users over the Internet who know
your printer model, printer port, and the IP address of your
HWPS12UG.
IPP Setup
Print Server Side
It is not necessary to modify your IPP settings on the print server side.
Make sure you know your print server’s IPP settings and make sure
they are correctly set to your network’s IP settings.
Contact your
system administrator if you are unfamiliar with your network’s routed
IP settings. If you would like to share your printer with Internet
users outside of your internal network structure, you will have to set
an outside IP address that can access the print server. You also have to
make sure that any gateway, router or firewall does not block the IPP
protocol if you have those devices installed. Please contact your
system administrator or consult your router’s manual for DMZ or port
mapping configuration settings.
Client Side
You will need to perform Window’s standard Add New Printer
procedure.
To do this, select the “Network Printer” setting as shown
in the screen below and click “Next.”
Select “Connect to a printer on the Internet or on a home or office
network” and enter the URL of your HWPS12UG print server. The
URL format will be “http://IP:631/LPT_PORT”. The IP portion of
the URL will be the print server’s IP address. You will need to write
down 631 after the IP address. 631 is the IPP standard port number
for IPP printing requests. LPT_PORT is the port name of your print
server that your printer is connected to. For one port print servers, the
37
port name will be “lpt1”. For Hawking’s HWPS12UG three-port print
server, the port names are – lpt1, lpt2 or lpt3 depending on which
printer port your printers are connected to. (Please write down the
printer port and corresponding printer model for configuring our line
of multiple port print servers.) An example IP address will be
modeled as follows: The URL will be http://192.168.2.1:631/lpt1 for
a print server located on the first printer port (lpt1) of the IP address
192.168.2.1. After entering the URL of print server, click “Next ”
and complete the remaining configuration settings to access the shared
network printer.
For advanced configuration options, please refer to your
HWPS12UG manual which is located on the HWPS12UG
Installation CD-ROM.
