Assigning an IP address
To establish communication with the TCP/IP network, an IP address must be assigned to
your AXIS 5470e. Choose an appropriate method from the table below:
Method:
DHCP
RARP
BOOTP
Auto-IP
Server Required:
DHCP server
RARP server
BOOTP server
Windows environment
Comment:
Dynamic assignment of IP addresses
Static assignment of IP addresses
Static assignment of IP addresses
Automatic assignment of IP addresses
All methods are enabled by default
If you are working in a Windows network with automatic IP address assignment, your
print server will obtain an IP address automatically when you connect it to the network.
Follow the instructions on this page to verify the IP address:
1. Open a web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer or Netscape Communicator).
2. In the Web browser’s Location/Address field, enter the print server’s IP address, found on
the test page (see Connecting the Printer to the Network on page 8) and press Enter.
3. If the Network Print Server web page appears in your Web browser, the IP address was
set automatically when you connected the AXIS 5470e to your network.
4. If the Network Print Server web page does not appear, you need to set the print server’s
IP address manually using one of the methods described in Manual IP address assignment
on page 11.
Notes:
•
Use a Web browser with JavaScript support and Java enabled.
•
The AXIS 5470e supports WINS (Windows Internet Name Service), which is recommended when setting the IP address using DHCP in Windows environments.
•
If you are working in a WINS/ DDNS network, you can access the print server’s web pages using its
default host name: In the Web browser’s Location/Address field, enter the default print server name
AXISxxxxxx (xxxxxx are the last six digits of the serial number, found on the print server’s underside
label). Example: If the serial number is 00 40 8c 18 16 36, type AXIS181636 and press Enter.
•
DHCP, RARP and BOOTP can be used to set the IP address in UNIX, see the AXIS 5470e User’s Manual
for details.
•
See the AXIS 5470e User’s Manual for installation instructions in a NetBIOS/NetBEUI environment.
The User’s Manual is available from the AXIS Network Product CD and from the Axis web site at
www.axis.com
•
If you are working in a network that does not use dynamic IP address assignment, refer to Manual IP
address assignment on page 11 to assign an IP address to the print server manually.
AXIS 5470e User’s Guide
Manual IP address assignment
To establish communication with the TCP/IP network, an IP Address must be assigned to
your AXIS 5470e. Choose the appropriate method according to your network:
• AXIS IP JumpStarter™ is an easy-to-use Windows application that allows you to
assign an IP address to your AXIS 5900 and find Axis servers already installed in your
network. Refer to Setting the IP address using AXIS IP JumpStarter on page 12 for
instructions.
• arp/ping - use this method to set the IP address for each new device individually. This
method cannot be used over routers. Refer to Setting the IP address using arp/ping on
page 13 for instructions.
Note:
If you are using host names, you can map a unique host name to the IP address. Refer to your system
manuals for instructions on how this is performed on your system.
11
AXIS 5470e User’s Guide

AXIS 5470e User’s Guide
13
Setting the IP address using arp/ping
Refer to the appropriate section below to assign an IP address to your AXIS 5470e using
arp/ping:
Windows
Open a Command Prompt and enter the following syntax:
Syntax
arp -s <Internet address> <Ethernet address>
ping <Internet address>
arp -d <Internet address>
1.
2.
3.
Example
arp -s 192.168.3.191 00-40-8c-18-16-36
ping 192.168.3.191
arp -d 192.168.3.191
The host will return reply from 192.168.3.191, or a similar message. This indicates
that the address has been set and that communication is established. You are now ready to
print using FTP or Reverse Telnet.
UNIX, Mac OS X
Open a Terminal and enter the following syntax:
Syntax
arp -s <host name> <Ethernet address> temp
ping <host name>
1.
2.
Example
arp -s psname 00:40:8c:18:16:36 temp
ping psname
The host will return psname is alive, or a similar message. This indicates that the
address has been set and that communication is established. You are now ready to print
using FTP or Reverse Telnet.
Notes:
•
The AXIS 5470e supports WINS (Windows Internet Name Service), which is recommended when setting the IP address using DHCP in Windows environments.
•
The Ethernet Address is the same as the serial number, found on the print server’s underside label.
Enter the Ethernet Address in the same format as in the example above.
•
Setting the IP address with arp and ping is only possible in the first ten minutes after re-booting
the print server.
•
When you execute the ping command for the first time, you may experience a significantly longer
response time than usual.
•
The arp command varies between different UNIX systems.
•
You need root privileges on your UNIX system in order to execute the arp command and run axinstall (refer to the AXIS 5470e User’s Manual for more information).
•
Some BSD type systems expect the host name and serial number in reverse order. Furthermore IBM
AIX systems will require the additional argument ether.
Example: arp -s ether <host name> <Ethernet Address> temp

AXIS 5470e User’s Guide
Configuring the Mainframe Host System for SNA Printing
Important!
When using a concentrator gateway between the host and your print server, it is not necessary to define separate
VTAM Major Node and PU definitions for the AXIS 5470e. You will instead be working with the gateway VTAM
definitions. Since the AXIS 5470e will appear to the host as one or several LU’s attached to the gateway PU, you
need only add LU definitions to the gateway major node definition and then proceed to step 3 below.
1. Define a VTAM Major Node Definition where the Print Server definitions will be
placed. Using a channel attached 3174 as a gateway to the host, this definition is
typically defined as a Local Major Node. If you are using a remotely attached
gateway via a 37X5 communications controller or a LAN attached 3172, you will be
working with a Switched Major Node definition.
2. Add the Print Server PU and LU definitions to the major node definition.
Notes:
For Switched major Node definitions you will need to:
•
Add the IDBLK (default = E07) and IDNUM (default = last 5 digits of the AXIS 5470e MAC address)
entries to the PU definition.
•
Code a PATH definition using the full 12 digit MAC address of the print server (the MAC address is
identical with the serial number which is found on the underside label on the print server).
Example:
•
An AXIS 5470e with a MAC/node address 00408C1B06D4 will be defined as: PA5470e1 PATH
DIALNO=010400408C1B06D4, GID=1, PID=1, GRPNM=gggggg
•
‘GRPNM’ specifies the symbolic name of a GROUP statement in an NCP major node. That GROUP
statement defines a logical group of SDLC switched lines or token-ring switched lines.
3. Ensure that the corresponding VTAM Logon-mode entries are available and that the
appropriate LU session types (LU1 or LU3) are used.
4. Vary ACTive the VTAM Major Node definition for the AXIS 5470e.

Verifying the Communication Link
1. Press the AXIS 5470e test button once to print a test page and ensure that the SNA status
is defined as Idle, Actv, LU-1 or LU-3.
Notes:
If the LAN media at the remote (Print Server) location differs from that at the host location (e.g.
Remote LAN = Ethernet and Host LAN = Token Ring), the MAC address definitions must be modified,
as outlined below:
Print Server Modifications:
The AXIS 5470e Host MAC address (H1_MAC_ADDR) must be bit-order reversed for each byte,
e.g. if the host address is 08005AB77D49 the converted address will be 10005AEDBE92.
Host Modifications:
The required Host modifications are dependent upon the VTAM definition for the Major Node where
the Print Server definition is placed.
•
Case 1 - VTAM Major Node definition is a Switched Major Node.
The MAC address of the AXIS 5470e must be bit-order reversed in the PATH entry. An AXIS 5470e
with a MAC/node address of 00408C1B06D4 will be defined using the MAC/node address
000231D8602B as follows:
PA5701 PATH DIALNO=0104000231D8602B, GID=1, PID=1, GRPNM=gggggg
•
‘GRPNM’ specifies the symbolic name of a GROUP statement in an NCP major node. That GROUP
statement defines a logical group of SDLC switched lines or token-ring switched lines.
•
Case 2 - VTAM Major Node definition is a Local Major Node.
When using a channel attached controller as gateway to the host, the MAC address of the AXIS
5470e is configured in the gateway. The address must be reversed, as in case 1 above.
Note:
If the setup fails, please refer to the troubleshooting section in the AXIS 5470e User’s Manual,

Installing Printers in Windows 95/98/NT/Me
AXIS Print Monitor is the recommended tool to use for network printing in Windows
95/98/NT/Me. It allows AXIS Network Print Servers to be connected in the same simple
fashion as a local printer port and once installed, it is automatically initialized upon
system startup.
For peer-to-peer printing, AXIS Print Monitor must be installed on all printing clients,
while it is only necessary to install it on the server for client-server printing.
Install the AXIS Print Monitor software which can be downloaded from the AXIS Network
Product CD or from the Axis Communications web site at http://www.axis.com
To install a printer with AXIS Print Monitor, use the Add Printer Wizard, available in your
Windows operating system. AXIS Print Monitor’s built-in Help system describes how to
install your printers as NetBIOS/NetBEUI, LPR or Raw TCP/IP printers. If you need
additional help, see the AXIS 5470e User’s Manual which is available from the AXIS
Network Product CD or the Axis Web site at http://www.axis.com
Note:
As the AXIS 5470e emulates the behavior of a local printer port, you must select the Local Printer
(Windows 95 and Windows 98) or My Computer (Windows NT) alternative when performing the
instructions in the Add Printer Wizard.

Setup using Queue-based printing over IP/IPX in PSERVER Mode
All previous firmware versions of Axis print servers allow users to print in an IPX
environment using traditional queue-based printing in PSERVER mode. This method is
supported in both Bindery and NDS mode.
Installing the AXIS 5470e in IP/IPX
Follow the instructions below:
1. From the AXIS 5470e internal web pages, go to admin | Network Settings | NetWare.
2. Set the NDS mode parameters on the NetWare page:
• PSERVER NDS Tree (example: NW5TREE)
or
PSERVER NDS File Server: (example: FILESERVERNAME)
• PSERVER NDS Distinguished Name:
(example: AXISXXXXXX.<context>, where <context> is the container where you want to
create your print server)
3. Click OK when finished.
4. Use the NetWare Administrator to create the printer, print server and queue objects in the NDS
tree and then link them together. The Print Services Quick Setup (Non-NDPS) utility can be
used for this. Go to Tools in the NetWare Administrator.
5. Use the Add Printer Wizard on your work station to install the printer on your client.
Notes:
• If both the IPX and IP protocols are enabled in your network and the print server uses DUAL_STACK (enabled by
default) as its network transport protocol, then IPX will be chosen. To force the print server to use the IP
transport protocol, go to your print server’s web interface and choose Admin | Detailed View | NetWare and
change the NetWare Transport Protocol from DUAL_STACK to IP_ONLY. Save and exit when finished.
• Pure IP requires that you run NetWare 5 or higher.
Important!
In order for the print server to log in using the IP protocol, RCONAG6.NLM has to be loaded to a specified tree. If
you have multiple trees, make sure that one file server in the specified tree has RCONAG6.NLM loaded.
AXIS 5470e User’s Guide
Setup for Queue-based printing over IPX/SPX (Remote Printer Mode)

IPP Printing
With IPP (the Internet Printing Protocol), a user with an Internet connection can send a
document to any printer connected to the Internet. IPP is platform-independent and can be
used to print over any LAN or WAN that supports TCP/IP. See the AXIS 5470e User’s
Manual for detailed information on IPP printing.
In order to print to a remote printer using IPP, you need the following:
• An IPP client installed on your computer together with appropriate printer drivers.
The IPP client is a tool that adds destination printers to your printer list. Windows
2000 comes with an integrated IPP client. See the AXIS 5470e User’s Manual for
information on obtaining IPP clients for other operating systems.
• The printer to which you want to send your print job needs to be connected to a
server with IPP functionality; the AXIS 5470e fulfills this function as it can receive
remote print jobs. The IPP-functionality of the AXIS 5470e print server is
automatically activated upon installation.
Printing with IPP in Windows 2000
1. Select the IPP printer to which you want to send your document. Choose the destination
printer from the Select Printer field (In File | Print).
If your destination printer does not exist in your Select Printer list, you need to add it.
Adding an IPP-printer to your printer list is described in Adding an IPP printer in
Windows 2000 on page 44.
2. When you press Print, the print job is sent over the Internet to the AXIS 5470e print
server, which then forwards the print job to the destination printer.
3. The recipient of the print job can collect the print job at the destination printer.
Adding an IPP printer in Windows 2000
Before you print to an IPP printer you will need to know:
• the http:// address of the print server. The http:// address contains the IP address or
host name of the print server, the port number (631) and the printer port name.
• the brand name and model of the destination printer in order to install the appropriate
printer driver.
• the printer port of the print server to which the printer is connected.
AXIS 5470e User’s Guide
