Introduction
The EpsonNet 10/100 Base Tx Ext. Print Server is a combination
of hardware and software that lets you connect an EPSON printer
equipped with a parallel interface directly to your network. Just
attach the network adapter to your printer’s parallel interface
connector, and connect it anywhere on your network.
Note:
❏ This manual is written for network administrators. Many of the
steps included here require detailed network knowledge and
administrator rights. The term network administrator refers to the
person responsible for maintaining the client network.
❏ The term “network adapter” refers to the EpsonNet 10/100 Base Tx
Ext. Print Server in this manual.
The network adapter automatically selects the correct interface
when it connects to the network. In addition, it supports IEEE
802.2, IEEE 802.3, Ethernet II, and Ethernet SNAP network
protocols.
Because the network adapter supports multiple protocols and
automatically detects the protocols on your network, you can
print from Microsoft® Windows®, Apple® Macintosh®, UNIX,
and IBM® OS/2 applications.
Use EpsonNet WinAssist or MacAssist, the configuration
software provided with your network adapter, to quickly and

network, the network adapter uses "192.168.192.168" as the
default IP address.
❏ Whenever the printer is turned on, you need to change the
printer port setting if Auto is selected for Get IP address.
For TCP/IP printing, we recommend selecting Manual and
setting the IP address manually.
Setting the IP Address
3-4
7. When you select Manual, assign the IP address, the subnet
mask, and the default gateway. Be sure to give an IP address
which does not conflict with any other device on the network.
Note:
❏ The default value for the IP address, subnet mask, and default
gateway are 192.168.192.168, 255.255.255.0, and
255.255.255.255 respectively.
❏ If there is a server or a router which functions as a gateway,
enter the IP address of the server or router for the gateway
address. If there is no gateway, leave the default values.
❏ The Set by PING check box is not available. To set the IP
address using arp and ping commands, leave the IP address as
default.
8. After making the settings, click OK. The Password dialog box
appears.
9. Enter your password (up to 20 characters) and click OK to

menu (for WinAssist), or by quitting MacAssist and then
restarting it (for MacAssist).
c
Caution:
Since it takes 2 or 3 minutes to send new settings to the
network adapter, you must wait until the on-screen message
appears to turn off your printer.
10. Print a status sheet to confirm the new IP address.
Setting the IP Address
3-5
Setting the IP Address Using arp/ping Commands
If you are using UNIX or OS/2, you need to use the arp command
to set the IP address of the network adapter, and the ping
command to check that you have set it correctly. You can also use
these commands with Windows 98/ 95/2000/NT, if you have
correctly installed TCP/IP networking on these systems.
To set the IP address by using arp and ping commands, the IP
address of the network adapter must have the default IP address
(192.168.192.168) and the network adapter must be in the same
segment as the host computer.
Before you start, you will need the following information:
❏ A valid IP address for the network adapter. Ask your system
administrator for an IP address which will not cause conflicts
with any other device on the network. If you are the system
administrator, choose an address within your subnet which
will not conflict with any other device.
❏ The MAC (Ethernet hardware) address of the network
adapter. This is the hardware serial number of the network
adapter, which cannot be changed. You can check the MAC
address on a status sheet.
Checking the LAN
First, you need to check that the network adapter can be reached
from the host.
1. Set the default gateway to the host on which you will be
setting up the network adapter.
If there is a server or router which acts as a gateway, enter the
address of the server or router. If there is no gateway, enter
the IP address of your computer as a gateway address.
Setting the IP Address
3-6
2. The default IP address of the network adapter is
"192.168.192.168". Check that the network adapter is
reachable by “pinging” it from the command line:
ping 192.168.192.168
3. If the network adapter is reachable, you should see results
something like the following (the exact form of the message
depends on your operating system, and the time may vary):
64 bytes from 192:168:192:168:icmp_seq=0. Time=34.ms
4. If the network adapter is unreachable, you may see something
like:
PING 192:168:192:168:56 data bytes
until you press Ctrl-C, when you may see something like:
192:168:192:168 PING Statistics
3 packets transmitted, 0 packets received,
100% packet loss
Again, the exact wording of the message you see may differ
from this, depending on your operating system. If you cannot
“ping” the network adapter, check the following:
❏ The address is correct in the ping command.
❏ The Ethernet connection to the network adapter and to
the host has been made correctly, and all hubs, routers,
etc. are switched on.
❏ The network adapter is operating normally (red light off,
green or orange light on).
Setting the IP Address
3-7
Setting and checking the new IP address
To set the new IP address which you have obtained from your
system administrator, use the arp command, with the -s flag
(create ARP entry).
Note:
In the following, we will assume that the MAC address of your network
adapter is 00:00:48:93:00:00 (hexadecimal), and that the IP address
which you will be assigning is 192.168.100.201 (decimal). Substitute
your values for these addresses when you type in the commands.
1. From the command line, type:
Example: arp -s 192.168.100.201 00-00-48-93-00-00
2. You can now check the new IP address, by “pinging” it:
Example: ping 192.168.100.201
3. The network adapter should now respond to the ping. If it
does not, you may have incorrectly typed the MAC address
or the IP address in the arp -s command. Double-check and
try again. If all else fails, re-initialize the network adapter and
try again.
4. Print a status sheet to check whether the new IP address has
been assigned for the network adapter.
Note:
When you set the IP address of the network adapter in this way, you
cannot change the subnet mask or gateway setting of the network
adapter. You must use the EpsonNet WinAssist in Windows (98,
95, 2000, or NT), or EpsonNet MacAssist in Macintosh to change
these parameters. You can also use EpsonNet WebAssist to change
these parameters.
Setting the IP Address
3-8
Changing the IP Address Using EpsonNet WebAssist
After you have configured the network adapter for TCP/IP using
EpsonNet WinAssist, MacAssist, or the arp/ping commands, you
can make changes to the IP address or other settings using
EpsonNet WebAssist (a utility that runs on your browser).
Note:
❏ A web browser must be installed in your computer.
❏ TCP/IP must be correctly set for the computer and network adapter.
❏ Do not operate EpsonNet WinAssist/MacAssist and EpsonNet
WebAssist for the printer at the same time.

Instructions for using NetWare
Printing a text file
When you print a text file using the NPRINT command of
NetWare or DOS, redirection, misconversion or a gap in
characters might occur depending on the client environment.
PCONSOLE limitation
To use the network adapter in Print Server mode, you cannot
use the Print Server status display control with PCONSOLE.
Bindery and NDS
❏ The bindery context path can be confirmed from the server
console by the SET BINDERY CONTEXT command.
❏ If the bindery context path has not been set, or if you want to
use the print environment of another context from a non-NDS
client, it is necessary to specify the context for the bindery
context. Use SET BINDERY CONTEXT command to set the
context in the AUTOEXEC.NCF file.
❏ You cannot use the bindery print server mode with EpsonNet
WinAssist if you are using Novell Client for Windows 95/98
version 3.00 or Novell Client for Windows NT version 4.50.
To configure the network adapter for bindery mode, use
Novell IntranetWare Client or EpsonNet WebAssist.
See your NetWare 5 or NetWare 4.1x documentation for more
information.
Settings for NetWare
4-3
IPX routing protocol "NLSP"
It is possible to set the IPX routing protocols “NLSP” from
NetWare 4.1x or later; however, the network adapter does not
support NLSP. RIP/SAP controls the communication.
You can select the routing protocol from a) NLSP with RIP/
SAP Compatibility or b) RIP/SAP Only. If you remove the
bind of RIP or SAP when NLSP with RIP/SAP Compatibility
is specified, the network adapter is not able to communicate
with the file server and NDS. (See “Protocols” and “Bindings”
in NetWare’s INETCFG utility.)
Time required to recognize the network adapter
It takes up to two minutes for the NetWare server to recognize
the network adapter after turning on the printer. During this
start-up time, the status sheet does not show the correct
information.
Frame type
The same frame type should be used for the NetWare server
and IPX router on the same network. If more than one frame
type is used on the same network, bind all the frame types to
the NetWare servers and IPX routers.
For NetWare 5
The IPX protocol must be installed (bound) to the NetWare 5
server.
About modes
If the mode you have logged in is different from the mode you
set for the network adapter, a message appears when you try
to configure the network adapter for NetWare. If you do not
want to change the current settings, click Cancel and log in
again in the same mode as you set for the network adapter.

Instructions for Using a Dial-Up Network
This section explains about using a dial-up network.
Note:
The primary server described in this manual indicates a primary time
server which offers time to the workstations on the network.
Using a dial-up network in each mode
Print Server mode
You must use a dedicated dial-up line.
Since polling is performed on the file server in the print server
mode, no vicarious response by the router is possible.
Therefore, no dial-up connection is possible in this case.
Remote Printer mode
In Remote Printer mode, use of a router with a vicarious
response function allows the primary server to be installed at
the dial-up destination. However, an extra account might be
generated when the primary server is down. To avoid that, it
is recommend to use connections via a dedicated dial-up line.
Follow the instructions for using a dial-up line.
Settings for NetWare
4-46
When there is a primary server at the dial-up destination
For local networks with file servers:
File
server
Primary file server
(primary print server)
Dial-up
router
Dial-up
router
Printer
Local network
Remote network
❏ When the power is turned on
A dial-up is generated because access is made to a local file
server first and then to a primary server. There is no problem
since this dial-up only occurs at startup.
❏ When the network adapter is not correctly set
A dial-up is generated because access is made to a local file
server first and then to a primary server. This dial-up is
repeated at intervals of approximately 5 minutes. Make the
network adapter settings correctly to avoid this problem.
❏ During normal operation (standby)
An SPX Watchdog packet is sent according to the NetWare
protocol convention. Use a router with a vicarious response
function to avoid a dial-up.
❏ During normal operation (printing)
A dial-up is generated while the printing data is being
transferred. This is not a problem because it is a dial-up
specific to the dial-up network.
Settings for NetWare
4-47
❏ When the primary server is down during operation
A dial-up is generated because a connection to the primary
server is attempted periodically. Since this is attributable to
the automatic re-connection function, turn off the printer with
the network adapter once.
❏ When the file server on the local network is down
When there is no file server on the local network, NetWare
cannot be used on the local network. In this case, the NetWare
protocol for the network adapter is also not available. No dialup is generated under this condition. When the file server on
the local network is restored, the network adapter is also
automatically restored.
For local networks with no file server:
Dial-up
router
Printer
Local network
Primary file server
(primary print server)
Dial-up
router
Remote network
Depending on the router setting, the NetWare protocol can be
used without a file server on the local network. This case also
follows the first five described above.
Settings for NetWare
4-48
For local networks with a primary server
Even if a primary server is installed on the local network, an
unnecessary dial-up may be generated depending on the
configuration.
The following problems are common to both Print Server mode
and Remote Printer mode.
Primary file server
(primary print server)
Printer
Dial-up
router
Local network
File server
(print server)
Dial-up
router
Remote network
❏ When the power is turned on
Since access is made only to the primary server, no dial-up is
generated.
❏ When the network adapter is not correctly set
Since access is made only to the primary server, no dial-up is
generated. However, if the file server/print server of the
remote network is erroneously set as the primary server, an
unnecessary dial-up might be generated. Correct the settings
to avoid this problem.
❏ During normal operation (standby/printing)
Since access is made only to the primary server, no dial-up is
generated.
❏ When the primary server is down during operation
Connection to the primary server is periodically attempted,
but no dial-up is generated. However, if the router is set to
pass SAP packets (Find Nearest Server), an unnecessary dialup might be generated. To avoid this, turn off the printer once,
or do not allow the router to pass SAP packets (Find Nearest
Server).

Chapter 9
Settings for UNIX
This chapter explains how to set up the printer for different UNIX
systems using the lpr command.
The network adapter supports many standard UNIX commands
and can be configured from a host computer without using a
special setup utility.
The network adapter is able to function as a remote printer on
systems using TCP/IP Ethernet transfer with lpr remote printing
protocol, or standard ftp (file transfer protocol).
Note:
Because this network adapter does not convert data into the printer
control language, a printer driver and filter are necessary for each
system.
lpr filters
Filters for lpr are controlled by the name given to the remote
printer. When setting up an lpr printer entry, a name is entered
for:
❏ the local printer name to be redirected
❏ the host name of the station to which the print is sent
❏ the remote printer name (name of the printer port on the
remote station)
It is this last name that the network adapter uses to determine
which filters to use.
Settings for UNIX
9-1
Many different remote printer names may be set up, all directed
to the same network adapter remote host, and each is given a
different local printer name to be redirected. Different types of
print jobs may be sent to different printer names, which will then
all print out on the same printer, through the same network
adapter interface, but using different filters.
The remote printer name options used to invoke the different
filters are as follows:
lpb
Binary files (no filters)
lpa
ASCII files (carriage returns at line ends)
lpbf
Binary file with form feed at file end
lpaf
ASCII file with form feed at file end
All other remote printer name options will be treated the same as
lpb.
The following is an example of sending a text file, "txtfile", via lpr
with a form feed appended:
% lpr -plpaf txtfile
Setting Up Different UNIX Systems Using the lpr
Command
The following UNIX systems can print using the standard lpr
command.
SunSoft Solaris 2.4 or later
SunOS 4.1.4 or later
IBM AIX 3.2.5 or later and 4.1.3 or later
HP-UX 9.05 or later

Tips for Using EPSON Status Monitor 2
Controlling the packet traffic on the network
The computer with EPSON Status Monitor 2 communicates with
the printer across the network. If there are many monitoring
computers and printers to be monitored, packet traffic increases
and may slow down the network. Limit the number of monitoring
computers and printers to be monitored to control network traffic.
It is a good idea to designate a single printer administrator who
can monitor all printers on the network and allow others to
monitor only the printer that they usually use. This is one way to
decrease network traffic.
The monitoring interval also affects the network traffic. Make the
interval longer for printers at a great distance on the network.
Monitoring printers beyond routers
When you monitor NetWare printers located beyond dial-up
routers in the wide area network, you are likely to be charged
because of the line connection. Consider the network
configuration and set hops carefully on NetWare networks.
If you set one or more hops for the NetWare network, the search
packet travels beyond the router. Even if there are no printers to
be monitored beyond dial-up routers, it is likely that the dial-up
line will be used and you will be charged more than you expect.
If you do not monitor printers beyond routers, set 0 for the
number of hops during installation. To reset the number of hops,
reinstall the Status Monitor. See “Installing EPSON Status
Monitor 2” on page 12-7.

About uninstalled network printers
The Uninstalled Network Printers menu shows network printers
that do not have drivers installed in your computer. Because you
can monitor printers without installing printer drivers, this
feature is useful for network printer administrators.

EpsonNet Internet Print Utility
EpsonNet Internet Print is a utility program that supports
printing across the Internet using Internet Printing Protocol (IPP).
Since the network adapter supports IPP, Internet printing is
possible using this utility. You can print or make printer settings
from Windows 98, Windows 95, and Windows NT4.0 systems
that can access the Internet. You can also print via a proxy server
using this utility.
Before using the EpsonNet Internet Print utility, be sure to read
the README file found in the EpsonNet Internet Print folder.
This file contains the latest information on the EpsonNet Internet
Print.
Note:
EPSON Status Monitor 2 is a utility program that monitors your
printer and gives you information about its current status. Because this
utility does not support IPP, printers connected to the Internet cannot
be monitored with EPSON Status Monitor 2 (or EPSON Status
Monitor 3). If you use EpsonNet Internet Print on a computer which
has EPSON Status Monitor 3 installed, a communication error message
may appear when you view printer properties. To avoid this, click the
Optional Settings tab in the target printer’s properties dialog box and
click the Update the Printer Option Information Manually radio
button.
