3.3.1 Network Ports Quick Setup
Network Ports Quick Setup Utility offers a very simple method to add or remove print server’s printer port from
the client’s computer.
During the client’s installation procedure, the system will automatically search for all print servers on the
network, and add them into the printer ports of the client’s computer. (See below)
If you have just installed another new print server in the network, you must run this program first. This
program will search for new print servers and allow you to add the new network printer port into the client’s
computer. Perform that standard Add Printer procedure, and you can print directly to the printer through the
newly installed print server.
Please be aware that Network Ports Quick Setup Utility can only detect and configure all print servers on
other subnets across network segments. You must use Remote Ports Utility as described in the next section
to manage remote (across network segments) print server.

Chapter 5: NetWare Network
5.1 System Architecture
We implemented NetWare printer sharing functionality into the print server itself, thus allowing one or more
printers attached by a print server to be connected to the network. We have developed the print server to
support NetWare print server.
The embedded print server, which emulates the “queue management functionality” of NetWare print server,
can act as the PSERVER program running on the NetWare server. A user first prints a job at a workstation, the
job is routed to a NetWare server, the NetWare server stores the job in a print queue and then the print server
gets the print job from the queue to printers.
Print Queue
Windows 98
Netware Server

Windows 2000
Compare with NetWare printing functionality, the advantages of embedding the NetWare network printing
functionality in the print server include:
Installation is easier and quicker.
Network management is easier.
Printing performance is enhanced.
Relieve NetWare file server’s burden.
Relieve the need of a workstation running the remote printer utility.
Improve productivity by locating the printer near the workgroup.
Each print server should log into a NetWare server before servicing the print jobs. Each print server will
occupy a user account with which it can log into the NetWare server.

Chapter 6: UNIX System Network
6.1 Introduction
The print server is available for TCP/IP printing by UNIX LPD (Line Printer Daemon) protocol. The LPD
protocol originated with UNIX release is based on the BSD version of UNIX and supported under most
versions of UNIX.
This chapter explains how to configure the print server for TCP/IP operation, and how to modify configuration
files on your UNIX system to allow printing to the print server. The configuration examples in this manual
follow the syntax for BSD-based UNIX systems. Please refer to the related system documentation for the
correct syntax for your systems.
To configure the print server for LPD printing, perform the procedures below:
1. Enable Print Server’s TCP/IP support.
2. Set up Print Server’s IP address.
3. Verify Print Server’s IP address.
4. Configure remote LPD printing on the host.
5. Print a test page.
In the next sections, we will describe these five procedures step by step.
6.2 Enable Print Server’s TCP/IP Support
The default configuration of the print server is with TCP/IP support enabled. You can configure the print server
to enable TCP/IP support using the configuration program.
6.3 Setup Print Server’s IP Address
The print server must have a unique IP address in order to be recognized by the network.
You can set up the IP address on the various UNIX systems using any one of the following methods:
1. DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
2. BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol)
The print server will use the last three methods to obtain its IP address automatically if its IP address is
configured as Auto (0.0.0.0).
AirLive WP-201G v2 User’s Manual
33
6.3.1 DHCP
There are many UNIX systems that support DHCP protocol, and the procedures to configure the DHCP
server database are different. This manual does not describe the DHCP server configuration on the UNIX
systems. It is highly recommended that the DHCP server should be located on the same network as the print
server.
6.3.2 BOOTP
If you have the BOOTP daemon, bootpd, running on your UNIX system that is accessible by the print server,
you can use the BOOTP protocol to set up the IP address of the print server. We recommend that the BOOTP
server should be located on the same subnet as the print server. If you use Network Information Services (NIS)
in your system, you may need to rebuild the NIS map with the BOOTP services before doing the following
BOOTP configuration. To rebuild the NIS map, please refer to your system documentation.
To configure the IP address data for the BOOTP server, you will need to log in the host of BOOTP server as
the superuser (root). Perform the following steps to add address entries.
1. Optionally, assign a name corresponding to the print server’s IP address. You can add this address to the
/etc/hosts file, by adding a line such as:
203.66.191.12
pserver
2. Add an entry to the host’s /etc/bootptab file, similar to the following:
hostname:\
:ht=1:\
:ha=print_server_ethernet_address:\
:ip=print_server_ip_address:
Lines should be indented with tabs.
Where hostname is the device name of a print server, the ht=1 tag specifies the hardware type is Ethernet, the
ha= tag specifies the Ethernet address of a print server, which is the Node ID located on the print server. The
ha tag must be preceded by the ht tag. The ip= tag should correspond to the IP address you want to assign to
the print server.
For example, a print server with the following configuration:
Node ID: 0000B4010101 (this implies Ethernet address is 0000B4010101),
IP address: 203.66.191.12
AirLive WP-201G v2 User’s Manual
34
The entry for this print server in the /etc/bootptab file should be:
PS010101:\
:ht=1:\
:ha=0000B4010101:\
:ip=203.66.191.12:
6.4 Verify Print Server’s IP Address
To verify that your print server is responding to the newly assigned IP address using a PING command:
ping ip-address
6.5 Configure Remote LPD Printing on the Host
The procedure you use to configure your UNIX host(s) to allow printing to your network remote print server
varies between different varieties of UNIX. The procedures below can be used for UNIX variants that are
related to BSD UNIX, such as SunOS or Linux. For other versions of UNIX, consult your system
documentation, keeping in mind that:
1. The print server should be treated as a BSD networked print server host.
2. The host name should be the name (or IP address) that you have assigned to the print server.
3. The printer name (or queue name) on the remote host should be p1, p2, or p3, the name of the printer
port on the print server.
You will need to perform the tasks below, logged in as the superuser (root) to configure your UNIX host for
printing.
1. Optionally, assign a name corresponding to the print server’s IP address. You can add this address to the
/etc/hosts file, by adding a line such as:
203.66.191.186
pserver
2. Create a spool directory for the printer in the same directory where spool directories are normally kept on
the machine, such as /var/spool or /var/spool/lpd:
mkdir /var/spool/lpd/pserverd
chown daemon /var/spool/lpd/pserverd
chgrp daemon /var/spool/lpd/pserverd
chmod 775 / var/spool/lpd/pserverd
AirLive WP-201G v2 User’s Manual
35
3. Add an entry to the host’s /etc/printcap file, similar to the following:
printer-name:\
:lp=:\
:rm=203.66.191.186:\
:rp=p1:\
:If=/var/spool/lpd/pserverd/log:\
:sd=var/spool/lpd/pserverd:\
:mx#0:
Lines should be indented with tabs. More than one printer name can be used, with variants separated by
vertical bars (name1|name2).
The rm=entry should correspond to the IP address you have assigned to the print server. You can also use a
host name if you have assigned one in the /etc/hosts file.
The sd= entry should correspond to the port name of the remote printer. The values should be one of p1, p2
or p3 depending on the printer port.
The print server should now be available for printing from your UNIX host.

AirLive WP-201G v2 User’s Manual
64
‐
Key Length – You can choose “64-bit” to use WEP with 64-bit key length encryption or choose “128-bit” to
use WEP with 128-bit key length encryption. The longer key length can provide better security but worse
transmission throughput.
‐
Key Format – You may select to use ASCII Characters (alphanumeric format) or Hexadecimal digits (in
the “A-F”, “a-f” and “0-9” range) to be the WEP Key.
‐
Passphrase – A passphrase simplifies the WEP encryption process by automatically generating the WEP
encryption keys for the print server.
‐
Default Key – Select one of the four keys to encrypt the data. Only the key you select it in the “Default
key” will take effect.
‐
Key 1 – Key 4 – The WEP keys are used to encrypt data transmitted within the wireless network. Fill the
text box by following the rules below.
‐
64-bit WEP: input 10-digit Hex values (in the “A-F”, “a-f” and “0-9” range) or 10-digit ASCII characters as
the encryption keys. For example: “01234567890123456789abcdef” or “administrator”.
WPA-PSK Security Mode
“WPA-PSK” requires users to select one of the advanced encryption methods, i.e. TKIP or AES and enter a
set of shared key.
‐
TKIP – TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) changes the temporal key every 10,000 packets. This
insures much greater security than the standard WEP security.
‐
AES – AES has been developed to ensure the highest degree of security and authenticity for digital
information and it is the most advanced solution defined by IEEE 802.11i for the security in the wireless
network.
‐
Pre-shared Key Format – Select “Passphrase” or “Hex” key format. If “Passphrase” is selected, please
enter 8 to 63 digits of ASCII format to be the key for the authentication within the network. If “Hex” is
selected, please enter 64 digits of Hex code which should be “0-9” and “A-F”.
‐
Pre-Shared Key – The ‘Pre-Shared Key” is different from the key format selection. Please see above
description.

Chapter 10: IPP Printing
10.1 Introduction
IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) Printing provides a convenient way of remote printing service by TCP/IP. The
print server can support IPP printing by default. It is needless to do any setting. Any PC that can support IPP
printing, for example Windows 2000/XP can directly use the print server by IP. By using the IPP printing, you
can share the printer to all the PCs that can access the print server by IP.
10.2 System Setup
10.2.1 Printer Server Side
It is needless to do any setting on the print server side. Make sure the print server has correct IP settings. If
you want to share the printers with other Internet users, you have to set a real IP to the print server. You also
have to make sure that any gateway; router or firewall does not block IPP protocol if you have these gateway
devices installed in your network.
10.2.2 Client Side
You only need to perform Window’s standard Add New Printer procedure.
Step 1. Click Start, choose “Settings” and select “Printers and Faxes”.
Step 2. Click “Add a Printer”.
Step 3. The “Add Printer Wizard” is displayed. Click Next.
