NetWare
The procedure below applies to the NPS 650 Print Server Mode only
and is recommended only if you have a small network with just a few
file servers. If you prefer to use the Remote Printer Mode or if you
have a larger network, see the NPS 650 User’s Manual.
Setup and printing is done using the Novell PCONSOLE and
CAPTURE applications respectively. If you need to configure your
NPS 650 beyond the PCONSOLE capabilities, refer to the User’s
Manual.
Add a Print Server:
1. Log in as Supervisor to a file server from a client work station.
2. Start PCONSOLE. Press <F4> for Bindery Mode if you are using
NetWare version 4.xx
3. Select Print Server Information (NetWare 3.xx) or Print Servers
(NetWare 4.xx).
4. Press <Insert> to add a new Print Server.
5. Type the print server name as AXIS<nnnnnn> (<nnnnnn> are
the last six digits of your NPS 650 serial number). Press <Enter>.
6. Press <Escape> to return to PCONSOLE main menu.
Repeat this procedure for each file server using the NPS NPS 650.
Link a Print Queue to the Print Server:
1. Select Print Queue Information (NetWare 3.xx) or Print Queues
(NetWare 4.xx) from the PCONSOLE main menu. If you plan
to use an existing queue, skip to step 4.
2. Press <Insert> to add a new print queue.
3. Type a queue name, and press <Enter>. If you have more than
one printer attached to the NPS 650 the printout can be directed
to LPT1, LPT2 or COM1 by appending !1, !2 or !3 to the queue
name.
4. Select the queue to be serviced by your NPS 650.
5. Select Queue Servers (NetWare 3.xx) or Print Servers (NetWare
4.xx) in the Print Queue Information menu.
6. Press <Insert> to display the Queue Server Candidates.
7. Select AXIS<nnnnnn>.
8. Press <Escape> to return to the main menu.
Restart your NPS 650 (power-off/power-on) to connect your print
queues.

Windows
This section describes how to set up your NPS 650 for the Microsoft
Windows printing environment.
The NPS 650 setup for Windows comprises installing the NPS 650
printer ports as Windows printer ports, and connecting the ports to a
Windows printer driver.
Setup and printing is done using Axis Print Utility for Windows. To
install: Insert the disk included with your delivery, and choose
Run: a:\axpuw\install.exe.
If you need to configure your NPS 650, refer to the User’s Manual.
Peer-to-peer vs. Client-Server printing
The procedures below set up your NPS 650 for peer-to-peer printing,
which is the recommended method for smaller networks (no file
server is required). For larger networks, or if central monitoring and
priority management are required, you can set up your NPS 650 for
client-server printing:
1. Install Axis Print Utility on the file server.
2. Set up your NPS 650 as described below, but check the Share box
for your printer.
Your shared printers can now be used by all Windows clients on your
network.
Windows 3.1
Windows 3.1 requires that network support such as LAN Server or
LAN Manager Workstation software is installed. If you have that,
proceed as described under Windows for Workgroups below, otherwise
we strongly recommend upgrading to Windows for Workgroups.
Windows for Workgroups
Follow these steps to install an NPS 650 printer port as a Windows
port, and to connect a printer driver:
1. Double-click the Axis Print Utility.
2. In the Port menu, click Add.
3. In the NPS Port list, select the NPS 650 port you want to install.
The ports appear as <name>.LP1, <name>.LP2 and
<name>.CM1, where <name> is the NPS 650 print server name
(AXIS... is abbreviated to AX...).

qi650eng.frm Page 8 Wednesday, November 1, 1995 4:06 PM
Unix
You will need root privileges for the configuration.
1. Find an unused Internet address (IP address) and choose a unique
host name for your NPS 650.
2. Add the NPS 650 IP address and host name to your system host
table by appending the following line to the /etc/hosts file:
<IP address>
<host name>
Example: (Use the IP address and host name from step 1.)
192.36.253.96
salesdept
3. Update your alias name data bases (YP/NIS).
Example: (The commands may be different on your system.)
> cd /var/yp
> make
4. Send the IP address to the print server. The node address is your
NPS 650 serial number divided into six groups of two digits each,
using ’:’ to separate the groups. (See the example below.)
arp -s <host name> <node address> temp
ping <host name>
Example: (Use the host name from step 1.)
arp -s salesdept 00:02:31:48:00:61 temp
ping salesdept
Note: The arp command syntax may differ between Unix
systems. You may also use rarp or bootp to set the IP address, see
the User’s Manual.
5. Log in to the NPS 650 and up-load the axinstall script:
> ftp <host name>
Name (salesdept:thomas): root
Password: pass
(not visible)
ftp> get axinstall
ftp> bye
Example: (Use the host name from step 1.)
ftp salesdept
6. Execute the script:
> sh axinstall
The directions on the screen will guide you through the
installation of LPD, FTP or PROS on your Unix system.
