IP Address Host Names
If you are using host names, you can map a unique host name to the IP address. Refer to your
system manuals or to your network administrator for instructions on how to perform name
mapping on your system.
Notes
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
You need to know the Ethernet address of your AXIS 1650 to perform the installation. The Ethernet address is
based on the serial number of your AXIS 1650. For example, an AXIS 1650 with the serial number of
00408C181CF0, will have the corresponding Ethernet address of 00 40 8C 18 1C F0. The serial number is
located on a label on the backside of the print server.
DO NOT use the IP addresses shown in the following examples when installing the AXIS 1650.
ARP/Ping operates on single network segments only, i.e. it cannot be used over routers.
The default host name of the print server is ’AXIS’ followed by the last 6 digits in the serial number. e.g.
AXIS181636. The host name is changed in the Print server name field in Admin | General Settings.
The host name limitations conclude that if you want to register the same host name at a WINS server and a
DDNS server, the host name should be no longer than 15 characters and it should only contain the characters
‘A-Z’, ‘a-z’, ’0-9’ and ‘-’.
Refer to your system manuals or to your network administrator for instructions on how host name resolutions
are performed on your system.
At least one WINS server IP address must be included in the DHCP scope if you are using WINS. Immediately
after the IP address has been received, the AXIS 1650 registers its host name and IP address on the WINS
server.
If the host name has not been mapped to the IP address, you can still perform the following instructions to
download the IP address. In this case, simply replace the host name entry with the IP address wherever
required.

Print Server Management Using SNMP
You can use SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) for remotely monitoring and
configuring the AXIS 1650. All major functions for print servers are supported.
General Information
SNMP refers to a set of standards for network management, including a protocol, a database
structure specification, and a set of data objects. The AXIS 1650 SNMP implementation runs in
TCP/IP networks.
The management is handled by NMS (Network Management System) software running on a
host on your network. The NMS software communicates with network devices by the means of
messages, which are references to one or more objects.
A message can be a question or an instruction to a device, or an alarm triggered by a specific
event in a device. Objects are contained in data bases called MIBs (Management Information
Base), where MIB-II is a standard database.
The AXIS 1650 supports the following MIBs:
•
•
•
•
relevant parts of MIB-II
relevant parts of the Host Resource MIB
relevant parts of the Printer MIB
relevant parts of the CANON-MIB

Upgrading the Firmware
Upgrading the Firmware
The print server’s firmware* is stored in its Flash memory. This memory retains data content
even after the power is removed. Flash memory allows data to be erased and re-written, which
is why you can install firmware updates in your print server as they become available, without
having to replace any parts. New firmware can simply be loaded into the AXIS 1650 over the
network.
* Firmware is internal print server software that determines its functionality.
You can obtain all print server firmware free of charge from the following locations:

•
Be careful not to interrupt the file transfer. If the transfer is interrupted, the print server
may have to be re-initialized by your dealer.
Before upgrading the print server, ensure that it is not printing jobs. You have to wait until
the print job is finished before you can proceed.

Upgrading the Firmware
AXIS 1650 User’s Manual
Upgrading using FTP
•
To upgrade over the network using FTP you will need a file with the new print server
firmware. The name of this file is in the form product_version.bin.
• The print server must have a valid IP address.
This example uses these sample values:
• Print server model: AXIS 1650
• IP address of print server: 10.13.4.105
• New firmware version name: 1650_1_00.bin
• Location of firmware and upgrade procedure: C:\Axis
(Create a new directory named e.g. ‘Axis’ on your hard drive and download the firmware to that location).
1. From www.axis.com/techsup/firmware, download the firmware and save it to a new
directory on your computer, e.g. C:\ Axis
2. Open a command prompt from Start => Run. Type cmd in the Run Window and click OK.
3. The DOS Command Prompt window will open. Make sure you are working from the c: directory
(type c: and press Enter).
4. Type cd Axis
5. Type dir and press Enter. The Axis directory you have created will display a list of all files.
6. Connect to the print server using ftp: Type ftp 10.13.4.105 (this example uses print server
IP address 10.13.4.105)
7. Enter the user name, the default user is root (if the default password has been changed then
it must also be entered). Press Enter.
8. Change to binary transfer mode: type bin and press Enter.
9. Type hash and press Enter.
10. Use the 'put' command to upload the upgrade file to the flash location:
Type put 1650_1_00.bin FLASH. A stream of hash marks will appear.
11. You will receive a message stating "Transfer complete. Flash programming finished OK. "
12. The print server will restart in five seconds running the new software.

Appendix A
Enabling Unicast Network
Communication
IMPORTANT! All network configuration must be performed by the network administrator!
AXIS 1610 and AXIS 1611 do not support the Unicast mode.
AXIS CAPT Print Monitor uses broadcast communication, so that status information from the
print server can be shared between several users without elevating network traffic.
Broadcast communication is used by default in the print server.
In some networks where broadcast communication isn’t preferred, unicast communication can
be used, which will also increase the network load.
To enable unicast communication, some settings must be configured in the AXIS 1650 and in
the AXIS Print Monitor during the software installation.
Follow these steps to enable unicast network communication:
1. Open a command prompt and change to a directory where you can store the configuration
file by typing C:/<any directory> and press Enter.
2. Log in to the AXIS 1650 with the command:
ftp <IP address>
where <IP address> is the IP address of your AXIS 1650.
3. You will be prompted for a user id:
default user id = root (if the default password has been changed then it must also be entered)
4. To access the configuration file, type: get config
5. Next go to the C: directory on your computer and locate the file named config.
59
AXIS 1650 User’s Manual
6. Open the config file using any text editor:
Make sure this parameter is set to YES.
7. Locate the parameter named USE_IP_PORT_NAME:
type YES
8. Once the editing is complete, save the file as config
9. In the Command prompt window, upload the configuration file to the AXIS 1650 by typing
put config CONFIG
10. To exit FTP, type
quit
Note: This will also change the Print Server Name parameter so that it is based on the print
server’s IP address, with “_” replacing the “.” in the address.
Example: If the print server’s IP address is 192.168.3.191 the Print Server Name parameter will be
changed to 192_168_3_191.
