Registering and
Resolving
Host Names
Section 4 Basic Installation (Cable & Wireless)
In order to register the host name of the AXIS 5800+ Mobile in
networks with dynamic IP address settings, WINS (Windows
Internet Name Service) and DDNS (Dynamic Domain Naming
System) are supported. It is recommended that at least one of
these methods should be used if you are setting the IP address of
the AXIS 5800+ Mobile using DHCP.
The host name of the AXIS 5800+ Mobile is specified by the
PS_NAME parameter. Refer to “Parameter List” on page 151.
WINS host name rules
WINS only supports 15 character long host names. If your host
name is longer than 15 characters, the AXIS 5800+ Mobile
truncates the host name to 15 characters when registering with a
WINS server. You can view the AXIS 5800+ Mobile host name
that is registered at a WINS server, in the print server’s Web
interface. Refer to Section 11 Management and Configuration,
on page 102.
DDNS host name rules
DDNS supports 47 character long host names and can only
consist of the characters ‘A-Z’, ’a-z’, ’0-9’ and ‘-’. If your host
name consists of any other characters, they are converted to ‘-’,
when registering with a DDNS server. You can view the AXIS
5800+ Mobile host name that is registered at a DDNS server, in
the print server’s Web interface. Refer to Section 11
Management and Configuration, on page 102.
If the host name matches another entry in the DDNS data base,
the AXIS 5800+ Mobile deletes the entry before registering.
Notes:
•
The host name limitations conclude that if you want to register
the same host name at a WINS server and a DDNS server, the
host name should be no longer than 15 characters and it should
only contain the characters ‘A - Z’, ‘a-z’, ’0-9’ and ‘-’.
•
Refer to your system manuals or to your network administrator
for instructions on how host name resolutions are performed on
your system.

Setting the IP address
using Auto-IP
AXIS 5800+ Mobile User’s Manual
Auto-IP is another tool for setting the IP-address automatically
in the absence of a DHCP server. If you have a DHCP server
running on your network, the AXIS 5800+ Mobile will receive
an IP address immediately after you have connected it to the
network. In the absence of a DHCP server, your AXIS 5800+
Mobile print server will automatically be assigned an IP-address
through integrated Auto-IP. The Auto-IP address structure is:
169.254.xxx.xxx.
The Auto-IP function will only work when DHCP is enabled in
your Axis print server. This function is enabled automatically
upon installation of a brand new print server. The easiest way to
make sure this function is enabled in your print server is to
perform a factory default. See Test Button, on page 144 for
instruction on how to do this. If you perform a factory default
on the AXIS 5800+ Mobile and DHCP is not available, Auto-IP
will automatically set the IP address of the print server.

Section 6 Setting Up - NetWare
Queue-based Printing Methods
The following overview explains the advantages and limitations
of the two supported queue-based printing methods.
Print Server Mode
The AXIS 5800+ Mobile logs in to a file server(s) and repeatedly
polls the print queues for print jobs. In this fashion, the AXIS
5800+ Mobile emulates a NetWare print server, which is a
workstation running PSERVER. It provides high printing speed
with low network load and is the recommended mode for
medium to large sized networks. Each print server in PSERVER
mode takes one NetWare user license.
Advantages
•
High performance: up to 1 Mbyte/s.
Limitations
•
In bindery mode, this printing method requires a NetWare user
licence for each AXIS 5800+ Mobile to file server link.
Remote Printer Mode
The AXIS 5800+ Mobile acts as Remote Printer for
PSERVER.NLM running on the NetWare file server, or to a
dedicated workstation running PSERVER.EXE. In this fashion,
the AXIS 5800+ Mobile emulates a workstation running the
NetWare remote printer software RPRINTER, or NPRINTER. This
mode is only recommended for small networks where the
number of NetWare user licences is a major issue.
Advantages
•
NetWare user licences are not required.
Limitations
•
Lower performance, typically 20 - 70 kbytes/s for NLM.
•
Higher network load.

Choosing a Printer
Selecting a Printer
Autodetect Printer
Type
The method for choosing a printer varies depending on which
version of LaserWriter printer driver you are using.
•
The LaserWriter 7.0 driver assumes that you use a standard PostScript driver, and cannot take advantage of any printer specific
features.
•
The LaserWriter 8.0 driver uses PPD files that contain printer
descriptions. This gives you full control over any features your
printer might have.
The print server can automatically detect the type of printer you
are using if you enable the ’Autodetect Printer Type’-function.
The print server can then recognize Epson and Hewlett Packard
InkJet printers. Most Epson and Hewlett Packard InkJet printers
that have MacOS printer drivers for network printing are
supported. Without the Autodetect Printer Type function, the
AppleTalk printer type has to be specified manually in the print
AXIS 5800+ Mobile User’s Manual
Section 7 Setting Up - Macintosh
server. For Epson InkJets it would be "EPSONLQ2" and for HP
InkJets it would be "DeskWriter". If the print server doesn't
recognize the connected printer the default setting "LaserWriter"
will be used as printer type. "LaserWriter" is the recommended
setting to be used with all PostScript printers.
To enable the ’Autodetect Printer Type’-function:
1. Log in to your print server’s web interface and choose: Admin |
Network Settings | Detailed View | Macintosh |
AutoDetectPrinterType | YES.
See the print server’s web interface Help pages for details.

example: AXIS100086_LPT1.
5. Click ‘Setup...’ and then ‘Auto Setup’. If the selected printer
supports bi-directional printing and the appropriate PPD file is
available, the installation is performed automatically and you
can therefore proceed directly to step 7. If this is not the case,
the PPD file must be selected manually, as described in
step 6.
6. Choose the PPD file matching your printer, and click ‘OK’.
If your printer does not appear in the PPD file list, please contact
your printer vendor. Use the Generic PPD if you do not need any
printer specific features.
7. Click ‘OK’, and then click the Close box. This completes the
configuration and closes the Chooser.
Repeat this procedure for each Macintosh computer on the
network using the AXIS 5800+ Mobile.
Bi-directional support
The AXIS 5800+ Mobile allows the printer driver to
communicate directly with the printer and consequently
facilitates complete functional control over print jobs, e.g.
automatic downloading of fonts not resident in the printer.
This functionality has backward compatibility with older
printers and Macintosh computers, which means that the AXIS
5800+ Mobile can generate appropriate responses to Macintosh
printer queries, when the connected printer does not support bidirectional communication.
Verifying the Setup
You simply need to print a document from the Macintosh
computer to verify communication to the chosen printer. The
basic installation can be considered complete if the print test is
satisfactory. The AXIS 5800+ Mobile is now ready to use as a
print server.

ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange).
ASCII is the most common format for text files in computers and
on the Internet. In an ASCII file, each alphabetic, numeric, or
special character is represented with a 7-binary digit binary
number (a string of seven 0s or 1s). 128 possible characters are
defined.
The Binary Communication Protocol (BCP) and the Tagged
Binary Communication Protocol (TBCP) are communication
protocols used by the serial and parallel ports of a printer. They
allow 8-bit binary data in files concurrent with the use of some
control characters, for communication and print job control.

No printer status logging. In the case of BSD it may conflict with
other input or output filters and does not allow both input and
output filters. In System V no filters or interface programs can be
used.
PROS
PROS A
A protocol developed at Axis. Comes in two versions;
named pipe (PROS A) and filter (PROS B).
PROS A - Advantages:
The AXIS 5800+ Mobile appears as a device to the system. This
makes all filter and model options available. It provides
accounting and status logging. Supports bi-directional printing.
The printer information read back can be viewed in a log file.
PROS A - Limitations:
A ‘C’ compiler is required to build the PROS A drivers.
Note:
•
You can download a ‘C’ compiler from http://www.gnu.org/.
AXIS 5800+ Mobile User’s Manual
PROS B
Section 8 Setting Up - UNIX
PROS B - Advantages:
It provides accounting and status logging. Supports bidirectional printing. The printer information read back can be
viewed in a log file.
PROS B - Limitations:
A ‘C’ compiler is required to build the PROS B drivers and in the
case of BSD, it may conflict with other input or output filters. It
does not allow both input and output filters. Interface programs
can not be used in System V.
Reverse Telnet
Often used for printing via a terminal server printer port. Only
recommended if you already have a Reverse Telnet driver
installed.
Advantages:
Easy to set up with previously installed Reverse Telnet drivers.
Limitations:
No status logging. Drivers are not supplied with the AXIS 5800+
Mobile. Existing drivers may be slow.
Other UNIX Systems
Most UNIX systems resemble either BSD or System V and so
with some ingenuity, a solution can also be devised for other
variants.
If the system has BSD socket type networking support, then
(in the bsd directory of the AXIS 5800+ Mobile) can be
used as a starting point. It receives print data from stdin, and
writes a log file to stderr. Nothing is written to stdout.
prosbsd
Alternatively, FTP may be used. It is a good idea to use
or sysv/ftp_sysv as a starting point.
bsd/ftp_bsd
IBM MVS Systems
A sample JCL script, jclex, is available in the mvs directory of
the AXIS 5800+ Mobile. It gives an example of how to print a
file from an MVS mainframe to an AXIS 5800+ Mobile using
FTP.

Section 9 IPP - Internet Printing Protocol
Section 9
AXIS 5800+ Mobile User’s Manual
IPP - Internet Printing Protocol
The AXIS 5800+ Mobile print server enables printing over the
Internet with IPP (Internet Printing Protocol), a developing
industry standard that allows users to print to remote printers
across the Internet.
With IPP, a user with an Internet connection can send a
document to any Internet-connected printer. IPP is platformindependent and can be used to print over any LAN or WAN that
supports TCP/IP.
In practical terms this means that you can send documents to a
remote printer as an addition to or replacement of fax and email, with the same quality and color options of traditional
network 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. A list of available IPP clients can be
viewed in IPP clients, on page 85.
•
The printer to which you want to send your print job needs to be
connected to a print server with IPP functionality. AXIS 5800+
Mobile makes it possible for your printer to receive print jobs
from an IPP client. The IPP-functionality of the AXIS 5800+
Mobile print server is automatically activated upon installation.
AXIS 5800+ Mobile User’s Manual
IPP Printing
Requirements
Address-schemes for
IPP printers
Section 9 IPP - Internet Printing Protocol
Before you print to an IPP printer you 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 (which is 631 and only used in the 1.0 standard) and
the printer port name).
•
the brand and model of the printer in order to install the appropriate printer driver.
•
the printer port name of the print server to which the printer is
connected.
When using IPP printing, you need to know the IP address or
host name of your IPP-enabled Axis print server. IPP is a clientserver type protocol which comprises two industry standards:
•
the 1.0 standard, which uses a http: address scheme.
•
the 1.1 standard, which uses an ipp: address scheme.
The URL syntax for the destination printer contains:
1. the print server host name or IP-address
2. the port number 631 (only used in the 1.0 standard).
3. the local printer port name
Example using host
name in the 1.0
standard:
If “axisps” is the host name of the AXIS 5800+ Mobile print
server, "631" is the port number and "LPT1" is the local printer
port name, then the syntax of the address scheme will be
http://axisps:631/LPT1 in the 1.0 standard.

AXIS 5800+ Mobile User’s Manual
If “171.16.5.218” is the IP-address of the AXIS 5800+ Mobile

IPP clients
Section 9 IPP - Internet Printing Protocol
An IPP client needs to be installed on your computer together
with an appropriate printer driver for proper IPP functionality.
The IPP client is a tool that adds destination printers to your
printer list.
The AXIS 5800+ Mobile print server with integrated IPP is
compatible with any 1.0 and 1.1 - compliant IPP client.
The AXIS 5800+ Mobile print server presents IPP Printer objects
to the client, one for each printer port. Some of the most
common IPP client printing methods are described later on in
this chapter. Please refer to your client documentation for more
specific information.
Currently available IPP
clients on the market:
•
For Windows NT/2000: the Internet Printer Connection software
from Hewlett Packard (can be downloaded from the Hewlett
Packard web site).
•
For Windows 2000/XP: the Microsoft IPP Client (automatically
installed with OS).
•
For Windows 95/98, NT 4.0: IPP clients can be downloaded
from the Microsoft web site.
•
For Unix/Linux: CUPS (can be down-loaded from the Common
Unix Printing System web-site: http://www.cups.org).

Section 9 IPP - Internet Printing Protocol
User Requirements
AXIS 5800+ Mobile User’s Manual
The IPP protocol does not require any special configuration of
the AXIS 5800+ Mobile print server, the IPP function is
automatically activated when you install your AXIS 5800+
Mobile.
IPP is platform independent and functional in Windows (NT, 95,
98,Me and 2000/XP), Macintosh, OS/2, NetWare and UNIX.
Firewall
Considerations
If there are one or more firewalls between the IPP Client and the
server, you may have to make some changes to the firewall
configuration. IPP uses TCP Port 631 for printing, so any
firewalls between client and server must be configured to allow
bi-directional traffic on that port. Please consult your network
administrator if you think any configuration changes are
necessary.

Using Logical Printers to Customize your Printing
The AXIS 5800+ Mobile has a powerful facility for altering the
print data. This means that your desired print format can be
realized on any type of printer. The following actions can be
invoked from the AXIS 5800+ Mobile:
•
The character set can be changed to suit the printer
•
Strings can be added before and after the print data
•
Strings within the print data can be substituted
•
ASCII to PostScript conversion
•
Redirection of print data to another printer if the printer is busy
•
Hex Dump mode to assist with printing problems
If any of these actions are required, a Logical Printer is used to
change the print data before being sent to the printer port. There
are eight logical printers (PR1-PR8) that can be set up to filter
the print data.
The default logical printers settings are such that PR1-PR4 cause
no change to the flow of print data, while PR5-PR8 add CR to LF
control characters:

AXIS 5800+ Mobile User’s Manual
Character Set
Conversion
Section 11 Management and Configuration
A common problem in a multiple host environment is that
different hosts use different ASCII character sets. As a result of
this, language specific characters (such as å ü ô ñ) are sometimes
printed incorrectly.
The AXIS 5800+ Mobile solution to this problem is to assign a
character set conversion filter to a logical printer, and then link
that logical printer to the host causing the problem.
You select your desired conversion filter by setting the
Character Set Conversion (PRx_CSET) parameter. The output
from the conversion filter is always IBM PC Set 2 (Code Page
437), and this is the character set the printer must be set up for.
Example:
Your network contains a host using the character set ISO 8859-2
and a host using the character set DEC. In order to direct their
print jobs to the printer connected to the AXIS 5800+ Mobile,
you should assign each host to a separate logical printer, and
install a character set conversion filter.
Follow the instructions below to change the conversion filter:
1. From the print server’s internal web page, select Admin | Logical
Printer Settings.
2. Select the PR1 tab.
3. Set the parameter Physical Port to LPT1.
4. Set the parameter Character Set Conversion to ISO>IBM.
5. Click the OK button.
6. Select the Printer2 tab.
7. Set the parameter Physical Port to LPT1.
8. Set the parameter Character Set Conversion to DEC>IBM.
9. Click the OK button.
117
118
Section 11 Management and Configuration
AXIS 5800+ Mobile User’s Manual
The ISO 8859-2 printer data that is sent to logical printer PR1
converts to IBM PC Set 2 and is printed on LPT1. Similarly, the
DEC printer data that is sent to logical printer PR2 converts to
IBM PC Set 2 and is printed on LPT1.
Adding Strings Before
and After Print Jobs
These string functions provide a way to send printer control
commands before and after each print job. They may be
specified individually for each logical printer.
All strings are entered as hexadecimal byte values.
Example:
Assume that the logical printer PR5 is configured as a PostScript
printer and that you want to append the PostScript End of File
character (hex 04) after each print job.
Follow the instructions below to add a string after the print job:
1. From the print server’s internal web page, select Admin | Logical
Printer Settings.
2. Select the Printer5 tab.
3. Enter the string 04 in the String After Print Job text field.
4. Click the OK button.
Example:
You have an HP LaserJet printer with dual input bins, and want
to print on pre-printed forms when using the logical printer PR4.
The standard forms are taken from bin 1, and the pre-printed
forms are taken from bin 2. The string before print job should
contain the command to select bin 2, ECl4H (hex 1B 26 6C 34
48), and the string after print job should contain the command
to select bin 1, ECl1H
(hex 1B 26 6C 31 48).
Follow the instructions below to add strings before and after the
print job:
1. From the print server’s internal web page, select Admin | Logical
Printer Settings.
2. Select the Printer4 tab.
AXIS 5800+ Mobile User’s Manual
Section 11 Management and Configuration
3. Enter the string 1B 26 6C 34 48 in the String Before Print Job
text field.
4. Enter the string 1B 26 6C 31 48 in the String After Print Job
text field.
5. Click the OK button.
String Substitutions
The string substitution function performs search and replace
operations on the print data. The primary application is to
replace printer control commands. Up to twenty string
substitutions may be specified individually for each logical
printer.
All strings must be entered as hexadecimal byte values, and each
match and substitute string must be preceded by a count byte.
You substitute command strings by editing the String
Substitutions (PRx_STR) parameter.
Example:
Assume that you want to replace the UNIX New Line (hex 0A)
with an ASCII NewLine (hex 0D 0A) for logical printer PR1.
Follow the instructions below to substitute command strings:
1. From the print server’s internal web page, select Admin | Logical

Redirecting Print Jobs
when a printer is busy
If print data is received for a printer that is already busy, the
host must wait. However, it is possible to use a logical printer to
redirect the print data to another logical printer when the target
printer is busy. If the second printer is also busy, the host must
wait until the target printer is ready.
Example:
Follow the instructions below to redirect PR1 print jobs to PR3,
when the printer assigned to PR1 is busy:
1. From the print server’s internal web page, select admin | Logical
Printer Settings.
2. Select the Printer1 tab.
3. Set the Physical Port parameter to LPT1.
4. Set the Secondary Printer parameter to PR3.
5. Set the Wait On Busy parameter to NO.
6. Click the OK button.
7. Select the Printer3 Web page.
8. Set the Physical Port parameter to LPT2.
9. Click the OK button.
Notes:
•

Section 11 Management and Configuration
Using SNMP for Print Server Management
You can use SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) for
remotely monitoring and configuring of the AXIS 5800+ Mobile.
All major functions for print servers are supported.
General Information
SNMP refers to a set of standards for network management,
including a protocol, a database structure specification, and a set
of data objects. The AXIS 5800+ Mobile SNMP implementation
runs in TCP/IP and NetWare (IPX) networks.
The management is handled by NMS (Network Management
System) software running on a host on your network. The NMS
software communicates with network devices by the means of
messages, which are references to one or more objects.
A message can be a question or an instruction to a device, or an
alarm triggered by a specific event in a device. Objects are
contained in data bases called MIBs (Management Information
Base), where MIB-II is a standard database.
The AXIS 5800+ Mobile supports all relevant parts of MIB-II and
of the host resources MIB. The AXIS 5800+ Mobile also includes
a private enterprise MIB, the AXIS MIB.
135
136
Section 11 Management and Configuration
The AXIS MIB
AXIS 5800+ Mobile User’s Manual
In order to make full use of the AXIS 5800+ Mobile SNMP
support, you are required to use NMS software that allows you
to install private enterprise MIBs, like the AXIS MIB.
The AXIS MIB contains a large number of objects which may be
categorized as follows:
•
Menu objects - used for viewing and changing the AXIS 5800+
Mobile configuration from the NMS program. Refer to 15 Parameter List, on page 151.
•
Printer status and unit administration objects - used for monitoring AXIS 5800+ Mobile print jobs and storing parameter changes
permanently.
•
Trap objects - used for alarms at various error conditions.
For technical details, you can view the MIB file (axis.mib) with
any text editor.
The AXIS MIB is resident on the AXIS 5800+ Mobile and can be
downloaded directly from the print server to your NMS software
using FTP.
Follow these steps to add the AXIS MIB to your NMS software:
1. Log in to the AXIS 5800+ Mobile using FTP.
2. Download the MIB file /snmp/axis.mib to the NMS host.
3. Install the AXIS MIB according to instructions in your NMS
software documentation.

Glossary
AIX
Advanced Interactive eXecutive. A version of the UNIX
operating system from IBM that runs on various IBM computers
including Mainframe systems.
ARP
Address Resolution Protocol. A protocol within the TCP/IP suite
of network protocols that allows a host to find the physical
address of a node on the same network. It is available in UNIX,
Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows NT. ARP cannot be
used across routers.
BOOTP
BOOT Protocol. A TCP/IP protocol, used for downloading startup information such as the IP address to hosts on the network. It
is only available in UNIX. BOOTP requires a BOOTP daemon on
your system. A request made to an active BOOTP daemon
initiates a search of the Boot Table for an entry matching the
print server's Ethernet address. If a matching entry is found, the
daemon downloads the IP address to the print server.
Bluetooth
Bluetooth Wireless Technology is a universal radio interface on
the globally available 2.4 GHz frequency band facilitating
wireless communicaiton of data and voice in both stationary
and mobile environments. Bluetooth technology is based on a
low cost short-range radio link, eliminating the need for wires,
cables and connections between for example mobile phones,
handheld computers, printers and LANS.
BSD
Berkeley Software Distribution. The University of California,
Berkeley additions to the UNIX operating system.
AXIS 5800+ Mobile User’s Manual
Section 16 Glossary
config file
This is a file that resides in the print server’s memory and
contains all the parameters that determine the AXIS 5800+
Mobile functionality. By editing the config file (changing the
parameter settings), you can configure the AXIS 5800+ Mobile
to meet the printing needs of your network.
DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. DHCP is available in
Windows NT, NetWare 5 and UNIX systems, and allows for the
automatic but temporary assignment of IP addresses from a
central pool. DHCP causes the selected host to automatically
allocate and download an unused IP address to the requesting
print server. It also provides validation data that defines how
long the IP addresses will remain valid.
To fully benefit from this method, the AXIS 5800+ Mobile also
supports the WINS host name resolution protocol, which is
available in Windows NT networks.
DNS
Domain Name System. Reflects the server names and addresses
within a network.
Firmware
Firmware is programming that is inserted into programmable
read-only memory thus becoming a permanent part of a
computing device. It can be distributed like other software and,
using a special user interface, installed in the programmable
read-only memory by the user.
Flash Memory
The print server software is stored in Flash Memory. This memory
is provided by a silicon chip that like any other ROM device,
retains data content even after power is removed. However,
Flash Memory is unique because it allows its data to be erased
and re-written. This means that you can install software updates
for your server as soon as they become available, without having
to replace any parts. The new software is simply loaded into the
server over the network.

IPP, a user with an Internet connection can send a document to
any Internet-connected printer. IPP is platform-independent and
can be used to print over any LAN or WAN that supports TCP/IP.
LED
Light Emitting Diode.
LPD
The Line Printer Daemon is a protocol for transferring print jobs
between hosts. This is the recommended method for UNIX
systems, but some System V versions do not support LPD.
Logical Printer
A logical printer acts as a filter between the network and the
physical printer. It appears to the user as a normal printer with
additional characteristics. For example a UNIX workstation may
only send a line feed (LF) to a shared printer that needs carriage
return (CR) and LF. The logical printer can solve this problem by
adding a CR.

RARP
Reverse Address Resolution Protocol. A TCP/IP protocol used for
downloading IP addresses in UNIX networks. It requires a RARP
daemon on your system, and only operates within a single
network segment. A request made to an active RARP daemon
initiates a search of the Ethernet Address Table for an entry
matching the print server's Ethernet address. If a matching entry
is found, the daemon downloads the IP address to the print
server.
RISC
Reduced Instruction Set Computing. A processor that recognizes
only a limited number of assembly-language instructions.
SAP
