NetWare
The procedure below applies to the NPS 630/632 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 630/632 User’s Manual.
Setup and printing is done using the Novell PCONSOLE and
CAPTURE applications respectively. If you need to configure your
NPS 630/632 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 630/632 serial number). Press
<Enter>.
6. Press <Escape> to return to PCONSOLE main menu.
Repeat this procedure for each file server using the NPS NPS
630/632.
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>
4. Select the queue to be serviced by your NPS 630/632.
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>.

Windows
This section describes how to set up your NPS 630/632 for the
Microsoft Windows printing environment.
The NPS 630/632 setup for Windows comprises installing the NPS
630/632 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 630/632, refer to the User’s
Manual.
Peer-to-peer vs. Client-Server printing
The procedures below set up your NPS 630/632 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
630/632 for client-server printing:
1. Install Axis Print Utility on the file server.
2. Set up your NPS 630/632 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

qi630eng.frm Page 8 Tuesday, November 14, 1995 10:02 AM
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 630/632.
2. Add the NPS 630/632 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 630/632 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:C8:00:61 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 630/632 and up-load the axinstall script:

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:
