Operator Safety:
This machine is considered a CDRH class I laser device, safe for office/ EDP use. The machine contains 5-milliwat, 760 - 800 nanometer wavelength, GaAIAs laser diode. Direct (or indirect reflected) eye
contact with the laser beam might cause serious eye damage. Safety precautions and interlock mechanisms have been designed to prevent any possible laser beam exposure to the operator.
Laser Safety:
The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) prohibits the repair of laser-based optical unit
in the field. The optical housing unit can only be repaired in a factory or at a location with the requisite
equipment. The laser subsystem is replaceable in the field by a qualified Customer Engineer. The laser
chassis is not repairable in the field. Customer engineers are therefore directed to return all chassis
and laser subsystems to the factory or service depot when replacement or the optical subsystem is required.
Important
Parts of this manual are subject to change without prior notice. In no event will the company be liable
for direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages as a result of handling or operating
the machine.
Caution:
Use of controls or adjustment or performance of procedures other than those specified in this manual
might result in hazardous radiation exposure.
Do not attempt any maintenance or troubleshooting other than that mentioned in this manual. This machine contains a laser beam generator and direct exposure to laser beams can cause permanent eye
damage.
Two kinds of size notation are employed in this manual. With this machine refer to the Inch version.
Ricoh shall not be responsible for any damage or expense that might result from the use of parts other
than genuine Ricoh parts in your Ricoh office product.
For good copy quality, Ricoh recommends that you use genuine Ricoh toner.

Precautions for Paper
Note the following precautions when handling or selecting paper to be used
with this printer.
Cautions in loading paper
• Use only the recommended paper types. Print quality cannot be guaranteed
if other paper types are used.
• Do not use paper that is already printed on.
• When loading paper into the paper tray, make sure that the top of the stack is
not higher than the limit mark inside the tray.
• When loading paper onto the bypass tray, make sure that the paper fits under
the side guide.
• When loading paper into the paper tray, make sure that print side is facing up.
• When loading paper onto the bypass tray, make sure that print side is facing
down.
Cautions in storing paper
Paper should always be stored properly. Improperly stored paper might result
in poor print quality, paper misfeeds, or printer damage.
Follow the precautions below.
• Avoid storing paper in humid areas.
• Avoid exposing paper to direct sunlight.
• Store on a flat surface.
• Keep open reams of paper in the package in which the paper came.
9
Paper types and cautions
❖ Plain paper
• If you print on paper heavier than 90 g/m2 (24 lb), use the bypass tray. The
bypass tray can hold paper up to 162 g/m 2 (42 lb) in weight.
• When loading paper heavier than 155 g/m2 (41 lb) onto the bypass tray, set
the printer to the Thick Paper mode using the operation panel. ⇒ P.125
“Making Printer Settings with the Operation Panel”
• If paper is curled or bent, correct it before loading.
74
Paper and Other Media Supported by Your Printer
❖ OHP transparencies
• Load only one OHP transparency at a time onto the bypass tray.
• When loading OHP transparencies onto the bypass tray, set the printer to
the Thick Paper mode using the operation panel. ⇒ P.125 “Making Printer
Settings with the Operation Panel”
• Be careful not to touch the print side of the OHP transparencies. Otherwise, the print side gets dirty or damaged, and results in poor print quality.
• When printing on an OHP transparency that has a print side, load it face
down onto the bypass tray.
❖ Translucent paper
• Load only one translucent paper at a time onto the bypass tray.
• When printing on translucent paper that has a print side, load it face down
onto the bypass tray.
❖ Adhesive labels
• Load only one adhesive label at a time onto the bypass tray.
• Use adhesive labels in which the whole side can be printed on.
• Avoid using adhesive labels having exposed glue.
• If the print side is coated, the print quality might be reduced, as the toner
might not fuse well.
❖ Envelopes
• When printing on envelopes, use the bypass tray or the optional envelope
feeder.
• Even when the optional envelope feeder is not installed, you can specify
the sizes for the envelopes for tray 2 using the operation panel. However,
the envelopes cannot be loaded into tray 2 without the envelope feeder.
To use the envelope feeder, the installation of the optional paper unit is required.⇒ P.16 “Type 1 Printer: Installing the Envelope Feeder Type 2000”, P.21
“Type 2 Printer: Installing the Envelope Feeder Type 1400”.
• Specification of envelopes are as follows:

75
Paper and Other Media
• For the Type 2 printer, you can load up to 5 envelopes (72 – 90 g/m2, 19 –
24 lb) onto the bypass tray at a time, without forcibly pressing them. However, make sure that the envelopes are not damp, and that the top of the
stack is not higher than the limit mark on the side guide. ⇒ P.92 “Type 2
printer: loading envelopes onto the bypass tray”
• You can load up to 60 envelopes (72 – 90 g/m2, 19 – 24 lb) into the optional
envelope feeder at a time, without forcibly pressing them. However, make
sure that the envelopes are not damp, and that the top of the stack is not
higher than the limit mark on the side guide. ⇒ P.85 “Type 1 printer: loading
envelopes into the envelope feeder” and P.94 “Type 2 printer: loading envelopes
into the envelope feeder”
• Make sure that print side is facing down when loading onto the bypass
tray, and facing up when loading into the optional envelope feeder.
• Load the envelopes with the flaps aligned to the left side fence. The flaps
should be securely folded down.
• Make sure that there is no air in the envelopes before loading.
• To get the better print quality, it is recommended that you set the right, left,
top, and bottom print margin, to at least 15 mm (0.6") each.
• Do not print on both sides of envelopes.
• Load only one size and type of envelope at a time.
• Before loading envelopes, flatten the leading edges (side being fed into the
printer) of them by running a pencil or ruler across them.
• Before loading envelopes, make sure that they are rectangular in shape.

exposed to a light for a long time,
the toner cartridge might be damaged and the print quality might
be reduced.
• Disposal can take place at our
authorized dealer or at appropriate collection sites.
Note
❒ Do not stand or place the toner cartridge upside-down.
• If you dispose the used toner
containers yourself, dispose
of them according to your local
regulations.
❒ The actual number of printed pages you get from a particular toner
cartridge depends on the type and
size of paper you are using, the
contents of your print images, and
printing environment conditions.
All this means that a toner cartridge might require replacement
sooner than the normal life described on P.149 “Consumables”.
❒ Type 1 Printer illustrations are
used in this section.
❒ Please refer to the inside of the
front cover of this manual to confirm which printer (Type 1 Printer
or Type 2 Printer) you have.
R CAUTION:
• The inside of the machine could
be very hot. Do not touch the
parts with a label indicating the
“hot surface”. Otherwise, it could
cause a personal burn.
• Do not eat or swallow toner.
• Keep toner (used or unused) and

è Click on [Cancel] to quit setup and then close any programs you have running.
è Click on [Next] to continue with the setup program.
6. Identify a path for the program. The path default is C: \Program Files\MAP. You can
change the path or use the default. The installation begins.
3.3
Using the MAP Program
When you start MAP program from the Start menu, the program will automatically enters
Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, or your default browser and prompt you with
a list of IPX print servers listed by their SAP identification and IP print servers by their IP
addresses.
Click on the URL of the unit you want to configure to access the unit’s HTTP Server. The
program will setup a link to the print server and obtain HTML code describing the home page.
Once the HTTP Server home page appears, you can configure or reconfigure your unit.
3.4
Configure the MAP Program
Once you install the program, you can Configure MAP to look for IP-based Printer Servers,
IPX-based Print Servers and the maximum number of hops to serarch for IP-based Print
Servers. The default hop count is 2.
The hop count number determines how many subnetworks the program will search to find
units. An entry of 0 on the screen searches only the current subnet. An entry of 2 would
Chapter 3 - 2
search the wire directly connected to the workstation, and, all networks accessible through
two routers. Entries of 15 or higher will automatically search every connected network (this
number is not recommended due to the amount of traffic it will generate).
Once the search parameters and a hop count is entered, click on OK.
3.5
Web IP Browser
Once you have assigned an IP address to your Network Interface Board, you may use an IP
browser, such as Netscape, to access the HTTP Server and the HTML code allowing
Network Interface Board monitoring and maintenance. To access the HTTP Server screens
from your browser, do the following:
1. Open up your browser by clicking on its icon.
2. For the URL, type in the IP address of the Network Interface Board (ex.
http://123.456.789.123). The HTTP Server screens should appear.
If you have problems, check to make sure you are using the correct IP address.

4.1.7
Installing the Print Server on Multiple File Servers
To install the print server on more than one file server, perform the procedures described in
Sections 4.1.1 through 4.1.6 for each file server. You must use the same name and
password for the print server (or no password) on all file servers. You set the password for
the Network Interface Board using the MAP program (ð refer to 4.3 Configuring the Network
Interface Board in NetWare Directory Services ). If you use a password, specify it on each
file server using the Change Password option on the Print Server Information menu of the
PCONSOLE utility.
When the Network Interface Board comes up, it automatically searches for and attaches to
the file servers that are no more than four hops and have no more than eight ticks
propagation delay. For extremely large or complex networks, this allows a bounded search
time on start-up. If the print server must attach to file servers beyond this range, or, if you
wish to accelerate start-up by eliminating the need to search all file servers in the four
hops/eight ticks radius, the file servers with which the print server is to operate may be
entered into the Print Server Configuration of a primary file server. The primary file server
can be any file server within the four hops/eight ticks propagation time limits, but ideally is as
close as possible to the print server. Once the print server locates the primary file server and
Chapter 4 - 4
the list of file servers to be serviced, the automatic search is dropped and the print server will
go directly to those file servers listed (and to no others).
4.1.8
Primary File Server
To use the primary file server option, use the following procedure on a file server close to the
printer:
1. List the file servers to be serviced by the primary file server by selecting File Server To
Be Serviced option from the Print Server Configuration Menu.
2. Press the INSERT key to display the Available File Servers list.
3. Select the name of each file server to be serviced and press the ENTER key to add it to
the File Servers To Be Serviced list.
4. When the list is complete, press the ESC key to return to the menu.
5. Install the Network Interface Board on each of the primary file servers.
4.1.9
Preferred File Servers
The MAP or Web Browser utilities allow you to identify a preferred file server, to be identified
within the Network Interface Board itself. If a preferred file server is listed, the Network
Interface Board will attach to this identified file server instead of initiating the automatic
search. If the preferred file server is also a primary file server (for example, has file servers
listed under file servers to be serviced), the Network Interface Board will connect directly to
these file servers.
Note:
The Preferred File Server is only applicable to bindery-based queues. Entering it
has no affect on NDS queues.
4.2
Configuring NetWare 4.x Bindery Emulation
Novell's NetWare 4.x can operate in two modes NetWare Directory Services (NDS) and
Bindery Services Emulation. For Directory Services, ð refer to 4.3 Configuring the Network
Interface Board in NetWare Directory Services.
These services run simultaneously and transparently to each other. The Network Interface
Board may be configured to operate with Bindery Services mode only (this section), or to
operate under NDS (ð 4.3 Configuring the Network Interface Board in NetWare Directory
Services ). When configured under NDS, the Network Interface Board will also service older
file servers operating in bindery mode.
Note:
If the Network Interface Board is not properly set up for NDS and the Bindery
Services mode is not running, the Network Interface Board can not find its file servers,
and the status page indicates the Novell NetWare protocol is not active.
4.2.1
Confirm Bindery Context
Before installing the Network Interface Board on a Novell NetWare 4.x server in Bindery
Emulation mode, check that the server has a Bindery Context (name for the server under
Bindery Services mode). If the server does not have Bindery Context, it may be preferable to
install in NDS mode. If the Network Interface Board must be installed in the Bindery
Chapter 4 - 5
Emulation mode, the server must have Bindery Context. Perform the following steps to
confirm the server has Bindery Context:
1. Go to the 4.x server and at the system console type: load install
2. Select Maintenance/Selective Install from the menu.
3. Select NCF Files Options from the menu.
4. Select Edit AUTOEXEC.NCF from the menu.
5. Search the file to see if you have a statement similar to the following included:
SET BINDERY CONTEXT=0U=ENG
Where =0U=ENG is an example of a name for the file server context. Use your own file server context in
place of =0U=ENG.
6. At the console prompt, type the SET BINDERY CONTEXT statement that you entered in
the AUTOEXEC.NCF file.
Note: The command at the console prompt takes effect immediately. The definition
in the file takes effect when the server is shut down
and then restarted.
4.2.2
Configure in Bindery Mode with PCONSOLE
Once you confirm the server has Bindery Context, use the following procedures to configure
the Network Interface Board.
1. Log into the network as ADMIN.
2. Type PCONSOLE and press the ENTER key.
The following screen appears.
Available Options
Print Queues
Printers
Print Drivers
Quick Setup
Change Context
3. When the Available Options menu appears, press the F4 key (for the Bindery Mode).
Note: If you receive a message asking you to login to a server with Bindery
connections, the server you are attached to does not have Bindery Mode enabled.
Follow the procedures in 4.2.1. Confirm Bindery Context or log onto a server with
Bindery Services activated.
4. From the Available Options screen, select Quick Setup and press the ENTER key.
5. Use Quick Setup to connect your print server, print queue and printer correctly. You can
modify these later if you need to.
6. Select Print server and press the F8 key to modify the entry.
Chapter 4 - 6
7. Enter the name of the print server in the Print server field and press the ENTER key.
Note: The print server name is printed under the Novell Network Information on the
Status and Configuration report. The factory default name is RDP_XXXXXX
(XXXXXX is the serial number of the unit).
8. Press the ESC key to move to the New printer field. Enter a name and press the
ENTER key.
9. Press the ESC key to move to the New printer queue field. Enter a name and press the
ENTER key.
10. Press the ESC key to move to the Printer type field and press the ENTER key. From
the list of printer types, select Other/Unknown and press the ENTER key.
11. When you are finished, press the F10 key to save the configuration.
12. Repeat steps 5 through 10 for each file server that the printer server services.
13. To view, add, delete, or modify print servers or queues after the initial setup, select either
the Print Queues or Print Servers option on the Available Options screen.
4.3
Configuring the Network Interface Board in
NetWare Directory Services
NetWare Directory Services (NDS) offers a different, more advanced approach to network
management than previous NetWare versions. Generally, it stores and tracks all network
objects. As a rule, all 4.x servers must have NDS loaded in order to function. In this way,
every NetWare 4.x server is a Directory server, because it services named Directory objects
such as printers, print servers and print queues. With the appropriate privileges, you can
create a print server object, which, once configured in its context (or location) on the network,
eliminates the cumbersome setup of print servers on every network server. NDS provides
true enterprise networking based on a shared network database rather than a individually
defined physical sites. The result is greatly improved print server setup and management.
The Directory Information Base (DIB) is used to store information about servers and
services, users, printers, gateways, etc. It is a distributed database, allowing access to data
anywhere on the network wherever it is stored. Pre-4.x NetWare versions provide the same
data found in the DIB but the data is stored in the NetWare Bindery. The DIB was designed
with more flexible access, more specific security, and, since it is distributed, it was designed
to be partitioned. The Directory uses an object-oriented structure rather than the flat-file
structure of the Bindery, and offers network-oriented access, rather than server-oriented
access found in the Bindery.
The Directory is backward-compatible with the NetWare Bindery through Bindery emulation
mode. Section 4.2 describes Print Server Operation with a 4.x NetWare system in bindery
emulation mode. When Bindery emulation is enabled, Directory Services will accept Bindery
requests and respond just as if a Bindery existed on the NetWare server being accessed. Be
aware that information obtained from the Bindery query may not be stored in the server since
the Directory is a partitioned and distributed database. Even though the NetWare 4.x server
is not operating from a Bindery, the applications making Bindery requests will not know the
difference.
Chapter 4 - 7
You may use NetWare Administrator NWADMIN or PCONSOLE to configure the printer in
NDS. Prior to printing, NDS must be set up as follows and the Network Interface Board must
be set up with NDS Context and Tree. See Section 4.4. The steps below describe the use of
NWADMIN configuration to create printer, print server, and print queue objects. Then, you
will assign, or associate those objects with each other.
If you wish to keep Bindery resources on any server, you can under NetWare 4.x if you declare a
SET BINDERY CONTEXT statement in your AUTOEXEC.NCF file.
For those who prefer, NetWare does offer PCONSOLE as an alternative to NWADMIN.
PCONSOLE can be used to set up static information about print servers such as: which
queues to service, and whom to notify in the event of a problem. See Novell NetWare
documentation for more information about the use of PCONSOLE for NDS.

Network Interface Board Configuration
The MAP utility or an IP Web Browser must be used to define the context and tree of the
Print Server. It is also used to change the Print Server name, set a password, modify scan
and frame search parameters, and set bindery-mode specific values.
Use the MAP utility or IP Web Browser (ð refer to Chapter 3) to access the Setup pages of
the Network Interface Board. Once you have accessed the Network Administration pages or
the Main Menu, do the following:
1. Select Setup NetWare under Protocols.
2. Click on Enable NetWare.
If it is not selected, the NetWare protocols will not come up, the Network Interface Board will not appear
as an advertised device, and the NIB will not be accessible using IPX SNMP.
3. The default name for the NetWare Print Server is RDP_123456, 123456 is the serial
number of the Network Interface Board. This is also the name of the printer in peer-topeer mode. If you want to change the default Print Server name, type this name in the
Print Server Name space. Leave the space blank if the default name is to be used.
4. If you want the Network Interface Board login with a password, this password may be
entered in the Print Server Password field, and again in the Password Retype field. If
a password is used, this password must be the same password for all bindery-based and
NDS-based Print Server entries.
5. Enter the name of a preferred bindery-based file server in the Preferred File Server
field.
The Preferred File Server entry is significant only for bindery or bindery emulation based operations. ð
Refer to 4.1.9 Preferred File Servers for the significance of a Preferred File Server. The Print Server must
be configured on the preferred file server. Incorrect setup of a Preferred File Server can interfere with
NetWare printing.
6. If the Print Server is to be operated under Novell Directory Services, type in a Context
entry and Preferred NDS Tree entry in the appropriate fields. Be sure to give the whole
context, whether typed or typeless, and do not begin your context path with a trailing
period (.). If you don't know your tree, type: whoami at the DOS command line. A typed
context name example is:
ou=standard.ou=organization_1
7. In the default mode, the Print Server scans each queue which it is to service once per
second. If you prefer a longer scan rate, you may enter the time between scans in
seconds in the Print Queue Scan Rate field.
8. The Network Interface Board will normally monitor the network to determine which frame
type is being used for Novell.
When it recognizes a type, it will assume the same frame type. Once it selects a frame type, the Network
Interface Board will only operate over that Novell frame type. Monitoring normally starts looking for IEEE
802.3, then Ethernet II, then 802.3 SNAP, etc. If your network is using multiple frame types for Novell, you
should bias the frame search to the desired type by setting the button next to the designation under
Ethernet Frame Type.
9. You can Disable Bindery mode on the Print Server if it is operating in NDS mode only.
To do so, click on that box. If you disable Bindery, the Network Interface Board will not
support Print Servers on a Bindery file server.
Chapter 4 - 10
10. Once you have selected all desired settings and entered the desired NetWare
information, you may cause this information to be entered in the Network Interface Board
NV RAM by clicking on Accept Settings.
As with all value changes, if you have not entered the Network Interface Board Management Password
before, you must enter it in the appropriate space before clicking on Accept Settings.
11. Entered values do not take effect until the Network Interface Board is reset or power cycled.
You may reset from MAP or the Web Browser by returning to the Home or Network
Administration page, and click on Reset under System.
Now click on Reset Unit. Alternatively, you may power cycle the printer. The new NetWare values should
now be in effect.

Windows Peer-to-Peer Printing
5.1
Windows IPX Peer-to-Peer Printing
Windows Peer-to-Peer printing allows Windows-95/98 workstations and Windows NT 4.0
workstations and servers to print to Network Interface Board printers without an intervening
file server and without using IP. The main features of the Windows IPX Peer-to-Peer printing
are as follows:
5.1.1
Ÿ
Runs on Windows 95/98 workstations and on Windows NT 4.0 workstations or servers
"out of the box".
Ÿ
Runs on networks which do not have a NetWare file server, as well as those that do.
Ÿ
Implements IPX Peer-to-Peer bi-directional printing between Windows workstations and
Network Interface Board printers.
Introduction and Preparation
The Peer-to-Peer implementation uses the IPX/SPX stacks for Windows 95/98 and Widows
NT 4.0 that are provided by Microsoft and Novell. The redirector software provided will
establish a connection with the printers supporting IPX Peer-to-Peer, without using an
intermediate file server, whether or not your network uses Novell NetWare.
When configuring the network capabilities for the Windows computer, you must include the
"IPX/SPX Compatible Protocol". If you are not using NetWare, you do not need to activate
any NetWare Client application.
This inclusion of IPX/SPX can also be done after initial Windows installation by going to the
Network setup function under Control Panel. To do this, you will need the Windows
installation disk(s).
Note:
Because Peer-to-Peer uses the IPX/SPX Protocol, Novell operation must
remain enabled on the Network Interface Board, even if traditional Novell printing facilities
are not being used. The name of the Peer-to-Peer printer, as it appears in the Windows
Port List, is the same as the Novell Print Server name, and may be changed by changing
the Novell Print Server name using the Web-based management or MAP utilities.
On power up, the Network Interface Board sniffs the network to see if there is Novell server
activity. If there is, it will use the same frame type and the local network number that it
senses. If, in addition, the NIB can log on to a file server, it will assume that Novell is
normally used and will store this frame type and new number in NV RAM so that, when it
comes up again, it will not have to spend the time sensing (which can take some time).
However, if the NIB cannot attach to a file server, it will use the sensed values, but will not
store them.
Chapter 5 - 1
If the NIB does not see any Novell activity, it will use 802.2 on 802.3 as a frame type and will
assign itself a network number of 0. The frame type and network number being used is
reported on the status and configuration sheet.
If a NIB is being moved from a site that had active Novell to a site that does not, the unit
should be reset to factory default to clear the frame type and network number information.
5.1.2
Installation and Operation
Install the Windows IPX Peer-to-Peer redirector as follows:
1. Put the CD-ROM which contains the redirector in your CD-ROM drive.
2. From the Windows main window, click on [Start].
3. Click on [Run].
4. From the Run screen, select the Setup file from the IPX-P2P directory in the CD-ROM
that you placed in your CD-ROM drive.
5. Click on [OK].
6. At the IPX Peer-to-Peer Setup screen, click on [Next].
Note: If setup detected a previous installation of the IPX Peer-to-Peer Redirector, it
will prompt you to have Setup delete the old driver and continue the installation
procedure. Click on [Yes] or [No].
Once the redirector is installed, each printer on the network that supports this peer-to-peer
capability will appear as a Port under Printer Properties.
To use the Peer-to-Peer connection, create a logical printer using the Add Printer Wizard
according to the instructions for your printer. Set up the printer as a LOCAL printer. Use the
driver that came with your printer.
When the Add Printer Wizard asks you to choose the Port, select the name of the
Peer-to-Peer printer you wish to print to. (Example: RDP-xxxxxx) When you complete the
installation, select the Print Test Page option.
5.2
Windows IP Peer-to-Peer Printing
For more detailed information on TCP/IP setup and printing, see Chapter 7.
Windows IP Peer-to-Peer printing allows Windows-95/98 workstations and Windows NT 4.0
workstations and servers to print to Network Interface Board printers without an intervening server
and without using IPX. The main features of the Windows
IP Peer-to-Peer printing are as follows:
Ÿ
Runs on Windows-95/98 workstations and on Windows NT 4.0 workstations or servers
"out of the box".
Ÿ
Implements IP peer-to-peer bi-directional printing between Windows workstations and
Network Interface Board printers.
Chapter 5 - 2
5.2.1
Introduction and Preparation
The Peer-to-Peer implementation uses the TCP/IP stacks that are provided with Windows
95/98 or Windows NT 4.0. The redirector software provided will establish a connection with
the printers supporting Peer-to-Peer, using a direct IP connection over the network.
When configuring the network capabilities for the Windows computer, you must include the
"TCP/IP Protocol". You do not need to activate any TCI/IP Client application.
This inclusion of TCP/IP can also be done after initial Windows installation by going to the
Network setup function under Control Panel. To do this, you will need the Windows
installation disk(s).
Note:
Because Peer-to-Peer uses the TCP/IP Protocol, TCP/IP operation must remain
enabled on the Network Interface Board, and the Network Interface Board must be assigned a
valid IP address. The name of the Peer-to-Peer printer, as it appears in the Windows Port List,
is the same as the IP Address assigned to the Network Interface Board. The IP Address may
be changed by changing the TCP/IP section using the Web-based management or MAP
utilities.
If a NIC is being moved from a site that had active TCP/IP to a site that does not, the unit
should be reset to factory default to clear the IP Address and other network information.
5.2.2
Installation and Operation
Install the Windows IP Peer-to-Peer redirector as follows:
1. Put the CD-ROM which contains the redirector in your CD-ROM drive.
2. From the Windows main window, click on [Start].
3. Click on [Run].
4. From the Run screen, select the Setup file from the IP-P2P directory in the CD-ROM
that you placed in your CD-ROM drive.
5. Click on [OK].
6. At the IP Peer-to-Peer Setup screen, click on [Next].
Note:
If setup detected a previous installation of the IP Peer-to-Peer Redirector, it will
prompt you to have Setup delete the old driver and continue the installation procedure.
Click on [Yes] or [No].
Once the redirector is installed, each printer on the network that supports this peer-to-peer
capability will appear as a Port under Printer Properties.
To use the Peer-to-Peer connection, create a logical printer using the Add Printer Wizard
according to the instructions for your printer. Set up the printer as a LOCAL printer. Use the
driver that came with your printer.
When the Add Printer Wizard asks you to choose the Port, select the name of the
Peer-to-Peer printer (Example: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) you wish to print to. When you complete the
installation, select the Print Test Page option.

Chapter 7
TCP/IP Configuration
This chapter explains how to configure the Network Interface Board and your network for use
with TCP/IP communication in various environments. Independent setup and installation
procedures are provided for Windows systems and for most popular UNIX systems. The
Network Interface Board TCP/IP capability will also operate with lpr spoolers on other
systems, and with spooler/supervisor capabilities that communicate raw print jobs to the Print
Server TCP/IP Port. The IP Peer-to-Peer redirector for Windows 95/98 and Windows NT
systems, provided with the Network Interface Board, uses this TCP/IP port. The default port
number is 10001, but may be changed to any desired number using the Telnet utility, SNMP,
or the HTML pages accessible via MAP or a Web Browser. Section 7.5 Running Telnet,
describes the interactive setup capability accessible through the Telnet utility on any TCP/IP
platform, and is equally applicable to Windows, UNIX, and other TCP/IP environments. The
use of MAP or a Web Browser to access HTML management pages in the Network Interface
Board is described in Chapter 3.
7.1
Installation in a Windows Environment
The several versions and variations of Microsoft Windows may be used on a NetWare and/or
TCP/IP networks, as well as in a native Microsoft Windows network. This flexibility allows
various options for setting up the network printing system even though this Network Interface
Board does not support NetBEUI. If the Windows workstations are connected to a NetWare
3.x or 4.x network, configure the printer interfaces for NetWare, and use standard
Windows/NetWare utilities to provide access to the printer. If NetWare is not to be used, the
users may access the printer using TCP/IP. Windows 95/98 and Windows NT 4.0 users can
also use the Network Interface Board Peer-to-Peer capability as described in Chapter 5. The
following sections describe installation using TCP/IP under Windows for Workgroups,
Windows 95/98, and Windows NT.
7.1.1
Windows for Workgroups
Printing with TCP/IP requires that the workstation have TCP/IP capability and the
corresponding spooler, lpr; or that the workstation can share an lpr queue on a Windows NT
server (for example) that has one. In general, if printers are not shared, an lpr queue must
be created on each workstation from which printing is initiated. See the Windows
documentation about sharing printers.
Windows for Workgroups does not normally come with TCP/IP. However, a variety of TCP/IP
facilities and third party lpr spoolers are available.
You will need the BOOTPL16.exe file if you wish to use the BOOTP Lite program to set up
IP parameters. The BOOTPL16.exe file is provided with the Network Interface Board.
Chapter 7 - 1
7.1.1.1 Installing TCP/IP
Follow the instructions for the TCP/IP package of your choice to set up the TCP/IP on the
workstations.
7.1.1.2 Loading the lpr Spooler
Follow the instructions for the lpr spooler of your choice to set up the spooler on the
workstations.
7.1.1.3 Setting up the Network Interface Board
The Network Interface Board must be given IP address and routing information to be used
with TCP/IP. This can be done with either the ARP procedure or the BOOTP Lite program.
Prior to running these programs, install the Network Interface Board in your printer.
Power-up the printer. Keep the status sheet handy for the Ethernet (MAC) address. It should
show that TCP/IP is enabled, but that the Protocol address is not configured. If the unit
already has an IP address, these procedures will not work. However, you can use the “User
Tools” menu on the operator panel of the printer, Telnet to the unit or use the HTML pages
accessed by a Web Browser to change the IP parameters.
7.1.1.4 Assigning IP Address with ARP
The Network Interface Board must be on the same network segment as the workstation that
you are using to configure it. The TCP/IP stack must be installed and operating.
Use the procedures in 7.1.1.5 Assigning IP Address with BOOTP Lite, if you prefer to use
BOOTP Lite to configure the IP address instead of ARP:
1. From Windows, enter the MS/DOS box.
2. At the command prompt enter:
ping XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX: any valid IP address on your network - not the print server
The identified unit should reply.
arp -s YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY 00-40-af-ZZ-ZZ-ZZ
YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY: IP address of Network Interface Board
00-40-af-ZZ-ZZ-ZZ : MAC Address of Network Interface Board
The entry should be accepted.
ping YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY
YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY: IP address of Network Interface Board
Request should time out.
3. Recycle the power on the printer, or let the Network Interface Board reset itself. The
Network Interface Board will produce a status page that should include the entered IP
address.
4. When the Network Interface Board is up again, type the following at the command
prompt:
ping YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY
Chapter 7 - 2
YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY: IP address of Network Interface Board
Continue until you get a reply.
Note: This only enters the IP address; you must use the Telnet facility or the HTML
pages accessed by a Web Browser to complete the IP setup for networks where
subnets are used. See 7.6 Running Telnet, for instructions on how to enter the other
IP parameters.
7.1.1.5 Assigning IP Address with BOOTP Lite
This program uses the BOOTP protocol. The Network Interface Board must be on the same
network segment as the workstation that you are using to configure it. The TCP/IP stack
must be installed and operating. The BOOTP Lite program will not work in a Windows PC
Operating as a DHCP Server.
The BOOTPL16.exe program will work with a 16 Bit TCP/IP stack.
1. Copy the BOOTPL16.exe file to the Windows directory of your workstation.
2. Reset the printer.
Note: The Network Interface Board issues the BOOTP request for a finite period of
time. The print server must be freshly reset for this
program to work.
3. From Program Manager under File, select Run \windows\ BOOTPL16.exe.
4. Pull down the Admin menu to Configure option.
5. Enter the IP address that you want to assign to the Network Interface Board, its Subnet
Mask (make sure it matches what you are using on your subnet), the Default Gateway
(your router's IP address), and the MAC address of the Network Interface Board
(Hardware Address, listed on the Status sheet as Ethernet Address). Use colons as
delimiters as shown on the status sheet rather than the dashes that Windows uses.
6. Click on Go. You will get a message that the program is Verifying, and then it will tell
you whether the unit is active or not.
7. Wait for about five minutes for the Network Interface Board to reset. The Status sheet
should report the newly entered IP information.
8. Enter the MS/DOS box. At the command prompt enter:
ping YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY
YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY: IP address of Network Interface Board
Continue until you get a reply.
If it does not respond, verify that TCP/IP is enabled on the status sheet. If the status sheet
does not show the IP information, then repeat the above procedures.
7.1.1.6 Setting up IP and lpr Parameters
The Network Interface Board provides for a setup connection via the standard Telnet port. To
be able to make changes to a unit with factory default settings, you must logon as "sysadm".
The default password is also "sysadm" (This password can be changed from the Telnet
utility). Section 7.6 Running Telnet, describes the use of the Telnet utility.
1. Telnet to the Network Interface Board (the login and password are both "sysadm").
Chapter 7 - 3
2. Turn off the protocols that you are not utilizing (option 3).
3. Setup the subnet mask and default gateway for the Network Interface Board if applicable
(menu option 1). (If you used BOOTP, this will already have been done).
4. Exit, Save and Reset the Network Interface Board.
You can also use the “User Tools” menu on the operator panel, the HTML pages accessible
via a Web Browser to setup lpr. The password to change parameters with the HTML pages
is the same as the Telnet password.
7.1.1.7 Creating an lpr Queue on the Workstation
Follow the instructions for the lpr spooler of your choice to set up the lpr queue on the
workstations. Enter PORT1 for the Remote Printer Name.
Note:
7.1.2
PORT1 must be entered in capital letters.
Microsoft Windows 95/98
Windows 95/98 comes with a TCP/IP stack. To print with this protocol, a client also requires
an lpr utility. This program is available from various sources. The lpr queue can be created
on each workstation or the lpr queue can be created on one workstation and shared on the
network. Windows 95/98 workstations can also share a lpr printer installed on an Windows
NT server on the network.
If you wish to use the Bootp Lite program, you will also need the BOOTPL32.exe provided
with this Network Interface Board on the MAP directory of the CD-ROM.
7.1.2.1 Loading the lpr Spooler
Follow the instructions for the lpr spooler of your choice to set up the spooler on the
workstations.
7.1.2.2 Setting up the Network Interface Board
The Network Interface Board must be given IP address and routing information to be used
with TCP/IP. This can be done with MAP utility. Follow the instructions for MAP, which is
documented elsewhere. If you cannot use MAP, you can use either the ARP procedure, or
the BOOTPL32 program.
Power-up the printer. Keep the status sheet handy for the Ethernet (MAC) address. It should
show that TCP/IP is enabled but that the Protocol address is not configured.
If the unit already has an IP address, these procedures will not work. However, you can use
“User Tools” menu on the operator panel, Telnet or the HTML pages accessed by MAP or
Web Browser to change the IP parameters.
7.1.2.3 Assigning IP Address with ARP
The Network Interface Board must be on the same network segment as the workstation that
you are using to configure it. The TCP/IP protocol stack must be installed and operating.
You can use BOOTPL32 to configure the IP address instead of ARP.
1. From Windows, enter the MS/DOS box. At the command prompt enter:
ping XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
Chapter 7 - 4
XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX: any valid IP address on your network - not the print server
The identified unit should reply.
arp -s YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY 00-40-af-ZZ-ZZ-ZZ
YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY: IP address of the Network Interface Board
00-40-af-ZZ-ZZ-ZZ: MAC Address of the Network Interface Board
The entry should be accepted
ping YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY
YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY: IP address of the Network Interface Board
Request should time out.
2. Recycle the power on the printer, or let the Network Interface Board reset itself.
The Network Interface Board will produce a status page that should include the entered IP address.
3. When the Network Interface Board is up again, at the command prompt, enter:
ping YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY
YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY: IP address of the Network Interface Board
Continue until you get a reply.
Note: This only enters the IP address. You must use the Telnet facility, (Section 7.
6 Running Telnet,) to enter the other IP parameters.
7.1.2.4 Assigning IP Address with BOOTPL32
You may provide the IP address and other IP parameters to the Network Interface Board on
32 Bit TCP/IP Stack (Windows NT & Windows 95/98) using the BOOTPL32.exe program.
You will have to store the BOOTPL32.exe file in the Windows directory. The
BOOTPL32.exe program will not work if the Windows PC is an active DHCP Server.
This program uses the BOOTP protocol. The Network Interface Board must be on the same
network segment as the workstation that you are using to configure it. The TCP/IP stack
must be installed and operating.
1. Reset the printer.
Note: The Network Interface Board issues the BOOTP request for a finite period of
time. The print server must be freshly reset for this
program to work.
2. Double-click on the BOOTPL32 icon to start the program.
3. Pull down the Admin menu to Configure option.
4. Enter the IP address that you want to assign to the Network Interface Board, its Subnet
Mask (make sure it matches what you are using on your subnet), Default Gateway (your
router's IP address), and the MAC address of the Network Interface Board (Hardware
Address, listed on the Status sheet as Ethernet Address). Use colons as delimiters as
shown on the status sheet rather than the dashes Windows uses. (eg.
00:40:AF:12:34:23)
5. Click on [Go].
Chapter 7 - 5
6. Wait about five minutes. The Network Interface Board should recycle and produce a
status sheet showing the IP parameters you have just entered.
7. Pull down Admin menu to Verify. You should get a message back stating that the Unit is
Active. If you do not get this message, verify that TCP/IP is enabled on the status sheet.
8. When you get a response that your unit is active, you should be able to ping and Telnet
to the Network Interface Board.
7.1.2.5 Setting up IP and lpr Parameters
The Network Interface Board provides for a setup connection via the standard Telnet port. To be
able to make changes to a unit at factory default settings, you must logon as sysadm. The default
password is also "sysadm". (This password can be changed from the Telnet utility.) See 7.6
Running Telnet, for instructions on using Telnet.
1. Telnet to the Network Interface Board (the login and password are both "sysadm").
2. Turn off the protocols that you are not utilizing (option 3).
3. Setup the subnet mask and default gateway for the Network Interface Board if applicable
(option 1).
4. Exit, Save, and Reset the Network Interface Board.
You can also use the HTML pages accessible via MAP or a Web Browser to set up lpr. The
password to change parameters with the HTML pages is the same as the Telnet password.
7.1.2.6 Setting up lpr on the Workstation
Follow the instructions for the lpr spooler of your choice to set up the lpr queue on the
workstations. Enter PORT1 for the Remote Printer Name.
Note:
7.1.3
PORT1 must be entered in capital letters.
Windows NT Instructions
Windows NT (version 3.5 or higher) does come with TCP/IP and lpr capabilities, although
these must be installed when the unit is configured. You must install the TCP/IP Protocol,
Simple TCP/IP Services, and Microsoft TCP/IP Printing prior to entering the network printer
on the workstation.
Note:
Once you have lpr installed on a Windows NT workstation and have allowed
printer sharing, other workstations may use the printer through the Microsoft Windows
Network without having to have separate lpr queues installed on each workstation. If you
wish to use BOOTPL32, you will need the BOOTPL32.exe file. This file is on the MAP
directory of the CD-ROM supplied with the Network Interface Board.
7.1.3.1 Setting Up the Network Interface Board
The Network Interface Board must be given an IP address and routing information to be used
with TCP/IP. This can be done with either the ARP procedure or the BOOTPL32 program.
Power-up the printer. Keep the status sheet handy for the Ethernet (MAC) address. It should
show that TCP/IP is enabled but that the Protocol address is not configured.
Chapter 7 - 6
If the unit already has an IP address, these procedures will not work. However, you can
TELNET to the unit to change the IP parameters.
7.1.3.2 Assigning IP Address with ARP
The Network Interface Board must be on the same network segment as the workstation that
you are using to configure it. The TCP/IP stack must be installed and operating.
You can use BOOTPL32 to configure the IP address instead of ARP.
1. From Windows, enter the MS/DOS box. At the command prompt enter:
ping XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX: any valid IP address on your network - not the print server
The identified unit should reply
arp -s YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY 00-40-af-ZZ-ZZ-ZZ
YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY: IP address of the Network Interface Board
00-40-af-ZZ-ZZ-ZZ: MAC Address of the Network Interface Board
The entry should be accepted.
ping YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY
YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY: IP address of the Network Interface Board
Request should time out.
2. Recycle the power on the printer or let the Network Interface Board reset itself. The
Network Interface Board will produce a status page that should include the entered IP
address.
3. When the Network Interface Board is up again, at the command prompt, enter:
ping YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY
YYY.YYY.YYY.YYY: IP address of the Network Interface Board
Continue until you get a reply.
Note: This only enters the IP address; you must use the Telnet facility or the HTML
pages accessed by MAP or Web Browser facility to enter the other IP parameters.
7.1.3.3 Assigning IP Address with BOOTPL32
You may provide the IP address and other IP parameters to the Network Interface Board on
32 Bit TCP/IP Stack (Windows NT & Windows 95/98) using the BOOTPL32.exe program.
This program uses the BOOTP protocol. The Network Interface Board must be on the same
network segment as the workstation that you are using to configure it. The TCP/IP stack
must be installed and operating.
This NT system cannot be operating as an active DHCP Server.
1. Reset the Network Interface Board.
Note: The Network Interface Board issues the BOOTP request for a finite period of
time. The print server must be freshly reset for this
program to work.

2. Double-click on the BOOTPL32 icon to start the program.
3. Pull down the Admin menu to Configure option.
4. Enter the IP address that you want to assign to the Network Interface Board, its Subnet
Mask (make sure it matches what you are using on your subnet), Default Gateway (your
router's IP address), and the MAC address of the Network Interface Board (Hardware
Address, listed on the Status sheet as Ethernet Address). Use colons as delimiters as
shown on the status sheet rather than the dashes that Windows uses. (eg.
00:40:AF:12:34:23)
5. Click on [Go].
6. Wait about five minutes. The Network Interface Board should recycle and produce a
status sheet showing the IP parameters you have just entered.
7. Pull down Admin menu to Verify. You should get a message back stating that the Unit is

8. When you get a response that your unit is active, you should be able to ping and Telnet
to the Network Interface Board.
7.1.3.4 Setting up IP and lpr Parameters
The Network Interface Board provides for a setup connection via the standard Telnet port. To
be able to make changes to a unit at factory default settings, you must logon as sysadm.
The default password is also "sysadm" (this password can be changed from the Telnet
utility). See 7.6 Running Telnet, for instructions on using Telnet.
1. Telnet to the Network Interface Board (the login and password are both "sysadm").
2. Turn off the protocols that you are not utilizing (option 3).
3. Setup the subnet mask and default gateway for the Network Interface Board if applicable
(option 1).
4. Exit, Save, and Reset the Network Interface Board.
You can also use “User Tools” menu on the operator panel, the HTML pages accessible via
MAP or a Web Browser to set up lpr. The password to change parameters with the HTML
pages is the same as the Telnet password.
7.1.3.5 Setting up lpr on the Workstation
The following procedure is used to set up the lpr spooler on the Windows NT server.
1. Open Control Panel.
2. Go to Printers.
3. Choose Printer Menu.
4. Choose Create Printer.
5. Enter a printer name (For example, lprprinter).
6. Select the proper printer driver.
7. Enter a description.
This is optional.
Chapter 7 - 8
8. In the Print To dialog, choose Other.
9. In Print Destinations window, select lpr port.
This leaves you with add lpr compatible printer window.
10. Line 1: Address of host providing lpd (Print server); enter IP address.
11. Line 2: Name of printer on that machine - enter PORT1 (the word PORT MUST be in
uppercase).
12. Choose [OK] to exit.
Your Network Interface Board is now configured to operate Windows NT. You may print from
any application by following the normal print instructions for that application.
7.2
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
DHCP is a service much like BootP that provides a method for assignment and maintenance
of IP addresses. The Network Interface Board is able to obtain IP information from this
service.
There are two user selectable parameters related to the DHCP function. These are
accessible in the TCP section of Network Administration, in the HTML pages.
1. Enable DHCP; and
2. IP Address in NVRAM
è If DHCP is not enabled, the Network Interface Board will make no DHCP requests
under any circumstances. If the Network Interface Board does not have an IP
address stored, or if "IP Address in NVRAM" is OFF, the Network Interface Board
will issue BOOTP requests, etc,
è If DHCP is enabled, the Network Interface Board will make DHCP requests when
the Network Interface Board is reset or on power up, when the Network Interface
Board does not have an IP address stored, or when " IP Address in NVRAM" is
OFF. These DHCP requests will be in addition to BOOTP requests.
è If DHCP is enabled, and the Network Interface Board had an IP address in NVRAM,
and "IP Address in NVRAM" is ON, then the Network Interface Board will use the IP
information from NVRAM and there will be no DHCP activity on the part of the Network
Interface Board.
The factory default is with both Enable DHCP - ON and IP Address in NVRAM - ON. In this
case, the Network Interface Board will issue DHCP requests if it does not already have IP
identification information stored in its NV RAM.
Important: If DHCP and the Network Interface Board is in the default mode, you must
establish a permanent lease or reservation for the Network Interface Board in the DHCP
server. Failure to do this may cause the same address to be given out to another host.
Chapter 7 - 9
7.3
IP Peer to Peer Printing
This section explains how to setup and use IP Peer-to-Peer Printing. This allows you to set
up your print server ports for peer to peer printing for IP, Windows NT4.0 , and Windows
95/98.
7.3.1
How to Install
Place the CD-ROM into a CD-ROM drive.
1. In Windows 95/98, go to START and then RUN.
2. Run the SETUP.EXE program in the IP-P2P directory on the CD-ROM and click on OK
when done.
3. Follow the program prompts.
7.3.2
Peer-To-Peer IP Setup
IP Peer-to-Peer printing allows you to print to a network printer for networks without a file
server or for networks where you do not want to use the server for printing. Use Peer-to-Peer
printing on Windows NT (4.0), and Windows 95/98 systems. Double-click P2P-IP.exe in
C:\P2P-IP folder (default) to bring up the Peer-to-Peer printing setup screen. An explanation
for each field on the screen is described below.
Max Hops for Search. Once you install the program, you can setup Peer-To-Peer IP with
the hop count. The default hop count is 2. The hop count number determines how many
networks the program will search to find units. An entry of 0 on the screen searches only the
network wire directly connected to the workstation. An entry of 2 would search the wire
directly connected to the workstation, and, all networks accessible through two routers.
Entries of 15 or higher will automatically search every connected network (this number is not
recommended due to the network traffic it would generate).
IP Port Base The starting port number for the print server. The default is 10000
(corresponding to a TCP/IP port of 10001) but you can change it if you need to.
Printer Names. Lets you select how you can view the printer names in the Windows port list.
Based on Serial Number - uses the printer server serial number to identify the printer
names. For example, if 991354 is the serial number of the unit, SN_991354-1 would be the
printer port.
Based on IP Address - use the IP address to identify the printer names. For example, if
199.99.92.99 is the IP address for the unit, 199.99.92.99-1 would be the printer port.
Based on DNS (Domain Name Server) - uses the DNS name to identify the printer name.
For example, <PTR-MKTG.DOMAIN.COM>.
7.3.3
Add Printers for IP Peer To Peer Printing
You can add printers manually whenever you cannot find printers automatically because of
router setup or the hop count setting. In general, this should not be necessary.
Step 1: Use P2P-IP to Add Printers
1. Click on the P2P-IP menu item in Windows. The Peer-to-Peer IP Setup screen appears.
Chapter 7 - 10
2. Press the [Printer...] button; a new form screen appears.
3. Enter information for the printer in all the fields described on the form.
Field
Description
IP Address
Enter the IP address of the printer you want to add.
Name
Assign a name to the printer. You can enter any name which you
feel identifies the printer.
Port Number
The port number of the printer. The default is 10001.
Description
Use this field to describe the printer location or the users who will
access the printer.
4. When you have entered all the information, click on the Add button. The printer is listed
in the Available Printers field at the bottom of the screen.
5. Click on [OK] when you have finished adding all the printers you want to add.
Step 2 Use the Add Printers option in Windows (Unset Settings/Printers).
1. Click on the [Add Printer] button.
2. Select Local Printer from the menu.
3. Select the make and model of the printer you want to use.
A list of printer ports appears. IP peer-to-peer printers will appear in this list.
4. Select the IP printer you want to use.
5. Complete the remainder of the printer setup procedure as you would normally.
7.4
UNIX Printing
The Network Interface Board can support UNIX TCP/IP printing in two modes:
Ÿ
Host-based lpd where a supplied line printer daemon is run on one or more workstations
and print data is communicated to the Network Interface Board via a TCP/IP port or,
Ÿ
Printer-based lpd where the printer appears as a host running a line printer daemon.
In general, printer-based lpd is easiest to use on BSD UNIX systems, requiring an entry in
the printcap file once the Network Interface Board has its IP information. Some UNIX System
V systems have restrictions on support of remote lpr/lpd printers, requiring that the hostbased lpr/lpd approach be used. For many operating systems, you have the option of using
host-resident printing or print server-resident printing. Each mode has certain advantages.
Ÿ
The host-resident method can print the username and filename on its banner page; the print
server-resident method prints a banner page with the host's name.
Ÿ
The print server-resident method requires you to configure the printer only one time, when you
install the print server. The host-resident method requires that a printing daemon be installed
on every host that you want to be able to print jobs.
Note:
The Network Interface Board will also operate with other host-resident print
supervisor/spooler programs that present a print image to the printer over a TCP/IP port.
The base TCP/IP port number can be changed via Telnet, or the Network Interface Board
Chapter 7 - 11
HTML setup pages accessed by MAP or a Web Browser. Remember, the actual
port
is always one higher than the base port number. The Status and Configuration page
indicates the actual port number.
7.4.1
Configuring the IP Address on the Network Interface Board
The Network Interface Board must be given IP address and routing parameters. You can
configure the IP address for the Network Interface Board in one of the following ways:
Ÿ
Use MAP, as described in Chapter 3.
Ÿ
Use the Internet Boot Protocol (BOOTP).
Ÿ
Use reverse ARP (rarp, Ethernet II frame type only).
Ÿ
Use arp and ping.
For each method, you will need to provide the Ethernet address of the Network Interface
Board. The Ethernet address is the 12-character code that is printed under Network Address
on the configuration status report each time the printer is turned on.
You can use the BOOTP, rarp, or ping procedures only when the Print Server is in its factory
default state (no IP information entered.) After the Print Server has an IP address, you must
use the Telnet utility, the AppleTalk NIManage utility for the Macintosh, or the Network
Interface Board HTML management pages accessed through the MAP utility or a Web
Browser to change an IP address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway.
7.4.1.1 Using BOOTP
The BOOTP daemon is a native TCP/IP option for configuring the IP address of a diskless
network device. To communicate the IP address, use the following procedure:
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Log in as superuser on a host on the same subnet as the print server. However, if the
server resides on another subnet, complete this procedure to store the IP address in the
print server. Reconnect the print server anywhere on the network, and then use Telnet or
the HTML pages accessed by MAP or a Web Browser utility to change the IP address.
See 7.5 Running Telnet, for instructions on using Telnet.
3. Find the Ethernet address of the Network Interface Board. The address is printed on the
configuration status report each time you turn the printer on.
4. Edit the hosts file (usually /etc/hosts) or use NIS or DIS to add the IP address and
Network Interface Board's node name. See the network administrator for the IP address.
For example, a Network Interface Board named printfast with an IP address of
192.9.200.200 has the following entry:
192.9.200.200 printfast
5. Stop the BOOTP daemon if it is running.
6. Edit the /etc/BOOTP tab file and add the following information:
nic_host:\
:ht = hardware type:\
:ha = ethernet address:\
:ip = IP address:\
Chapter 7 - 12
:sm = subnet mask:\
:gw = gateway address:
For example, for an RFC 1048 system:
printfast:\
:ht = ether:\
:ha = 0040AF03AF6E:\
:ip = 192.9.200.200:\
:sm = 255.0.0.0:\
:gw = 192.9.200.10:\
If running with a more recent BOOTP implementation, such as with SCO UNIX, add:
:vm = rfc1048:
Note:
The :ht = ether command should always be used.
The same information uses the following format on an RFC 951 "RFC 951" system:
Host
Printfast
htype
1
Haddr
00:40:af:03:af:6e
iaddr
192.9.200.200
bootfile
defaultboot
7. Start the BOOTP daemon by typing:
bootpd -s
8. Check the printer to verify that the Network Interface Board is connected to the network.
Turn on the printer.
9. Wait until the printer powers up and finishes initializing to allow enough time for the IP
address to become known and to be saved in non-volatile memory. The Network
Interface Board should reinitialize itself.
10. After the Network Interface Board has reinitialize, send a ping command to verify that
the print server obtained its IP address. For example:
ping 192.9.200.200
If the print server has the address, the result is a confirmation message:
192.9.200.200 is alive
11. Remove, or comment out, your changes to the /etc/BOOTP tab file.
12. Stop the BOOTP daemon and, if you want it to run, restart it.
7.4.1.2 Using rarp
The Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (rarp) allows network devices to query a server for
their IP addresses on start-up. For this procedure, there needs to be a workstation with a
rarp server. To store the IP address, use the following procedure:
1. Turn off the printer.
Chapter 7 - 13
2. Log in as superuser on the rarp server. However, if the server resides on another
subnet, complete this procedure to store the IP address in the print server. Reconnect
the print server anywhere on the network, and then use the Telnet or the HTML pages
accessed by MAP or a Web Browser to adjust the IP parameters for the subnet on which
the Network Interface Board is to operate.
3. Find the Ethernet address of the Network Interface Board. The address is printed on the
configuration status report when you power on the printer.
4. Edit the hosts file (usually /etc/hosts) or use NIS or DIS to add the IP Address and
Network Interface Board's node name. See the network administrator for the IP address.
For example, a print server with the name of printfast has the following entry:
192.9.200.200
printfast
5. Edit the /etc/ethers file or use NIS or DIS to add the Ethernet address. To continue the
example, for the printfast card with an Ethernet address of 00:40:c8:00:00:ff, make the
following entry:
0:40:c8:0:0:ff printfast
6. If the rarp daemon is running, stop it and restart it. Verify that the daemon is running.
7. Check the printer to see that the print server is connected to the network. Turn on the
printer.
8. Wait until the printer powers up and finishes initializing to allow enough time for the IP
address to become known and to be saved in non-volatile memory. The Network
Interface Board should then reset itself.
9. After the Network Interface Board has reset, send a ping command to verify that the print
server obtained its IP address. For example:
ping 192.9.200.200
If the print server has the address, the result is a confirmation message:
192.9.200.200 is alive
10. Remove, or comment out, your changes to the /etc/ethers file.
11. Stop the rarp daemon and, if you want it to run, restart it.
7.4.1.3 Using ping
Use the following procedure to enter the IP Address:
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Log in as superuser on a host on the same subnet as the print server. However, if the
server resides on another subnet, complete this procedure to store the IP address in the
print server. Reconnect the print server anywhere on the network, and then use Telnet or
the HTML pages accessed by MAP or a Web Browser utility to change the IP address.
See 7.5 Running Telnet, for instructions on using Telnet.
3. Find the Ethernet address of the Network Interface Board. The address is printed on the
configuration status report each time you turn the printer on.
4. Edit the hosts file (usually /etc/hosts) or use NIS or DIS to add the IP address and [print
server's node name. See the network administrator for the IP address. For example, a
Chapter 7 - 14
print server with a name of printfast and an IP address of 192.9.200.200 has the
following entry:
192.9.200.200
printfast
5. Add an entry to the arp cache for the Print Server's IP address and Ethernet address.
For example:
arp -s 192.9.200.200 0:40:c8:0:0:ff
6. Check the printer to see that the Print Server is connected to the network. Turn on the
printer.
7. Send a ping command the Network Interface Board to verify it is running on the network.
For example:
ping 192.9.200.200 or
ping printfast
The Network Interface Board will not respond to this ping command but it will read its IP
address from the packets.
8. Turn the printer off and back on again and then send the ping command again to verify
that the print server obtained its IP address. If the Print Server has the address, the
result is a confirmation message:
192.9.200.200 is alive
9. Remove the entry from the arp cache using the following command. Specify the Print
Server either by its IP address or by its name. For example:
arp -d printfast
7.4.2
lpd/lpr Printing
lpd/lpr is an implementation of the standard UNIX line printer daemon which lets you print
across a TCP/IP network without the need to install software on your workstation with all
filtering and banners done by Network Interface Board. Remote printing uses the same
commands (lpr, lpq, lpc) as local printing.
The process begins when the lpr call finds a printer on a remote system by looking at the
remote (rm) entry in the /etc/printcap file for that printer. lpr handles a print job for a remote
printer by opening a connection with the lpd/lpr process on the remote system and sending
the data file (followed by the control file containing control information for this job) to the
remote system. The printer-based lpd then filters the data and prints the job according to
information contained in the control file and its own printcap file.
Network Interface Board lpd recognizes the format of a certain printer emulations and filters
the data, if possible, so it can be printed on the printer type you specify. You can indicate to
the Network Interface Board lpd what type of printer is attached to by either:
1. Accepting the default port setting (PCL, PostScript and other), or
2. Changing the listed emulations via the Telnet or the HTML pages accessed by MAP or a
Web Browser utility.
The following sections give specifics lpd/lpr setup instructions for various systems.
Chapter 7 - 15
7.4.2.1 Setting Up a BSD Remote Printer to Use lpd/
To set up a remote printer on the host that sends jobs to Network Interface Board using
printer resident lpd, add an entry to the /etc/printcap file on your host for each printer you
use. The steps are described below.
1. Open the /etc/printcap file. Make an entry naming the Network Interface Board as the
remote host and PORT1 as the remote printer name. A typical printcap entry is shown
below:
<printer_name>\
(for example, lprprinter)
:lp=:\
:rm=<remote_host>:\
(for example, name as entered in /etc/hosts)
:rp=PORT1:\
:sd=/usr/spool/lpd/<printer_name>:
(for example, spool directory on system used to spool data
and control files)
This entry will send jobs spooled at /usr/spool/lpd/<printer_name> to the printer designated
<printer_name> to be printed at port 1 (the internal connection to the printer) of the Network
Interface Board designated as <remote_host>.
2. Create the spooling directory. For example, type:
mkdir /usr/spool/lpd/<printer_name>
3. To print via the spooler, use the lpr command. Type:
lpr -P<printer_name>
<file_name>
Installation and testing is done. You are now ready to print.
7.5
Running Telnet
The Telnet utility uses the standard remote terminal protocol to configure the IP address,
lpd/lpr printers, and other parameters on your system. Use the following guidelines to run
Telnet. You have the same functionality with the HTML pages accessed by MAP or a Web
Browser, as described in Chapter 3.
• Most often, you make selections from menus by toggling between one choice or another,
by selecting/deselecting or enabling/disabling an item.
•
Press Enter, when not selecting an item. This will return you to a previous menu.
• If you do not make a menu selection for 2 minutes, you get a "Two Minute Warning" that
within 2 more minutes your Telnet session will end. This ensures that one user does not
leave a session idle for too long.
Chapter 7 - 16
7.5.1
Making Connection and Main Menu
1. At the prompt, type:
2. telnet <Network Interface Board IP address>

Operation and
Troubleshooting
This chapter describes normal operation of the Network Interface Board in the printer, and
also provides information on how to troubleshoot any problems you might have with the
Network Interface Board.
8.1
LED Status Indicator
The Network Interface Board has two LED status indicators: amber and green. The amber
LED generally indicates job activity; it flashes when a print job is being communicated to the
Network Interface Board; it is off when no activity is occurring.
The green LED indicates the operating condition of the Network Interface Board when it is
powered on during normal operation. The following table provides the conditions that this
LED may indicate.

Status Report
The Status/Configuration report is sent as a print job to the printer when the print server is
powered on. For example, the report on the next page shows the configuration of the print
server immediately after the report is printed. Some printers also allow you to use a
command from the front panel that will produce a status report.
It is strongly recommended that you review this report immediately after installation and any
time the setup has been changed. If the report does not include a protocol that was
configured, check that the procedure was done properly.

Resetting the Print Server to Factory Default
You can make the Network Interface Board restore all parameters to factory default values,
so the Network Interface Board appears just as it came from the factory. You may choose to
do this when the Network Interface Board is moved to a new location where the environment
(AppleTalk network zones, NetWare file servers, IP subnets, and so on) are different.
This process is called "Reset to Factory". It can be done with the standard Telnet or HTML
(accessed via MAP or a Web Browser) utility.
Chapter 8-3
Note:
Resetting to factory default means that the print server loses all data such as
names and IP addresses. It does not lose its serial number or MAC (Ethernet hardware)
address.
After resetting to factory default, be sure to turn the printer off and on.
8.4
How to Diagnose Problems
Use the following list to determine the cause of printing problems:
1.
Verify that the printer is functioning properly.
• Is the printer printing? Make sure the printer is operating properly by causing it to
generate a test page. See your printer's owner's manual for instructions on generating a test
page.
•
Is the printer on-line? Verify that the printer is on-line or else nothing will print.
• Does the control panel display an error message? Review the printer documentation for
an explanation of the error messages.
• Did you get a Network Interface Board status page? On power-up, the Print Server sends
a status page which may contain information that can be useful for troubleshooting. Keep the
status page available until a problem is resolved.
Note:
The start-up Configuration and Status Page from the Network Interface Board
may be disabled via the MAP or a Web browser.
8.5
2.
Check the Network Interface Board's LED status indicator to ensure that there is no error
condition. See 8.1 LED Status Indicator, for more information.
3.
Check the status report to see what protocols are enabled and active. See the
appropriate chapter to confirm that you have installed and configured your network
protocol correctly for the Network Interface Board. See 8.2 Status Report, for an
example of the status report.
4.
If you added, changed, or removed any new hardware on the network, verify that it was
installed correctly.
5.
If you added any new software applications, make sure the program is compatible and
installed correctly on the network. See your network protocol documentation to confirm.
6.
Determine if other users can print. If they can't and they are all on the same NOS, go to
the troubleshooting section for that NOS.
7.
When you have determined the nature of the problem, use the checklists in the next
section.
Troubleshooting Checklists
Use the checklists in this section to identify and solve problems.
Chapter 8 - 4
8.5.1
Troubleshooting Network Hardware Connections
• Check that the network connector is plugged into the RJ connector on the Network
Interface Board.
•
8.5.2
Try another cable to make sure you do not have a bad cable.
Troubleshooting NetWare Protocol
It is recommended you use MAP to get the NetWare setup and parameter values. If you
have not resolved the problem after running MAP, go through the checklists in this section.
8.5.2.1 NetWare Checklist
• Is the print server name entered correctly? The factory-default name is RDP-serial
number. The serial number label is located on the board.
• Did you assign print queues to the printer? It is recommended you assign each print
queues to only one Network Interface Board-connected printer. If print queues are assigned
to other network printers, the print jobs may be going to an other network printer.
•
Did you assign the printer to the type Remote Other /Unknown?
If the PCONSOLE settings are correct, the connection between the printer and network may
have been broken. Turn the printer off and, using PCONSOLE, wait for the status message
Not Connected. Turn the printer on and the status should change to Waiting for Job.
8.5.2.2 File Server Checklist
•
Is there enough disk space on the file server and is it running?
•
Is the correct file server associated with the printer? Use PCONSOLE to check this.
•
Did you have the proper rights to configure the printer?
• Are the File Server and the Print Server communicating?
Run NetWare's COMCHECK utility from any network workstation to check this.
• Are there enough user positions on the File Server? The Print Server function logs on as
a user.
8.5.2.3 Workstation Checklist
•
Is the network loaded onto the workstation? See the NetWare documentation.
• Is the application set up to print to the printer? For instance, are you using the correct
driver?
• Is the workstation connected to the correct print queue? Print a file and verify that the file
goes to the queue.
• Are the print queues assigned to the Network Interface Board-connected printer also
assigned to another network printer? If they are, the print jobs may be going to that printer.
• From PCONSOLE, enter a sample print job directly into an assigned queue. Does the job
become Active? Is job printed?
• Is AUTO ENDCAP enabled? Auto Endcap lets you send data to a network printer. Use
PRINTCON to check. If not, enable it.
Chapter 8-5
8.5.2.4 Network Interface Board Configuration Checklist
If all your hardware connections are correct, check the following:
• Use MAP to check the status of the print server. The Unit Status screen shows the status
for the selected network interface card. This report includes a status of file servers and
queues assigned to a printer along with a description of any problems.
• The printer may not be assigned to the correct print queues. Use PCONSOLE to direct
print jobs to the correct queues, then check to see if the print job is in the queue.
• If devices were added or changed, use PCONSOLE to make sure you configured the
new devices correctly.
• Make sure the Network Interface Board's name has been entered correctly. If you
changed the name in MAP, you must also change the name in PCONSOLE before you can
print.
•
Use PCONSOLE to check the Printer Status. Make sure it is not stopped or paused.
• You cannot use PCONSOLE Version 1.0 to configure the network interface card. Contact
Novell for an upgrade.
8.5.2.5 Printer server/file server/printer Checklist
Check the following to see if:
• The Network Interface Board can not log into the file server, or cannot service jobs from a
File Server.
• The Print Server name is listed on that File Server, or cannot service jobs from a File
Server.
• The password assigned to the Network Interface Board through PCONSOLE matches the
password assigned through MAP. Use MAP to update the password stored in the network
Print Server's memory.
• The print job is in the print queue and waiting to be printed. Use PCONSOLE to check if
the print jobs are being sent to the printer.
8.5.2.6 Workstation to Network Interface Board Connection Checklist
To make sure the workstation is communicating with the Network Interface Board, check the
following:
• Print a file from the workstation and make sure the print job gets to the print queue using
PCONSOLE. If the print job does get to the queue, the problem is not with the
workstation/print server connection.
• Use CAPTURE to send data to the printer from a workstation software application. See
your NetWare print server manual for information.
• Make sure another printer is not taking the print jobs from the queues BEFORE the
Network Interface Board can service the job. To do this, disable the other printer until you
can verify the Network Interface Board-connected printer setup.
Chapter 8 - 6
8.5.2.7 Network Interface Board Loses Its File Server Connection
If the Network Interface Board loses its connection to the file server, it can take
approximately 5 to 10 minutes to reconnect. If the connection is not made after a reasonable
amount of time, check the error conditions to troubleshoot the problem.
8.5.2.8
Unable to Print from a Different Context
The Network Interface Board does not support printing from a context different from the
context you are installed upon. If you want to do this, you must create an alias queue. See
your NetWare Manual for more information.
8.5.3
Troubleshooting AppleTalk Protocol
• Is the Macintosh computer connected to the network through Ethernet, and, has the
Macintosh AppleTalk driver been selected? Go to the Control Panel, then go to Networks to
check.
•
Did you select the correct Network Interface Board and correct zone?
•
Is AppleTalk enabled on the Macintosh? Use Chooser to check this.
•
If you are on a network with multiple zones, is the zone correct?
• Did you select the correct printer driver in Chooser? You must first select the printer icon
and then select the printer name.
Note:
Not all printers will communicate with the default Macintosh driver.
•
If you renamed the printer, did you reselect the printer under its new name?
•
If you placed the printer in a new zone, did you reselect the zone?
• Are there other printers with similar names in the Chooser? Make sure you chose the
Network Interface Board-connected printer.

3. Windows 95/98
Configuration
What is Windows 95/98 Peer to Peer
Printing?
The peer to peer printing software that is included with the NIB allows Windows 95/98 PCs to communicate directly with network attached printers. A network server, such as NetWare or Windows NT, is not required for peer to peer
printing.
The peer to peer printing software must be installed on each PC that will use
peer to peer printing. Once peer to peer printing software is installed, all NIBs
on the network automatically appear in the list of available printer ports.
The peer to peer printing software can also be used in networks where servers
are present; however, often the server print services are utilized instead. Server
based print services offer centralized printing management and spooling and do
not require software (other than the printer driver) to be installed on each PC.
Note
❒ Be sure to turn the printer off and on after changing the network configuration.
Reference
For information on setting IP parameters, see “Configuring the Printer for the
Network with the Operation Panel” in the Operating Instructions that comes
with your printer.

4. Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol
(DHCP)
23
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
(DHCP)
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) provides a mechanism for
delivering IP configuration parameters, including IP address, Subnet mask and
default gateway, to devices (hosts) on an IP network. A DHCP server manages
the pool of available IP addresses and grants device requests for an IP address.
At power-up, the NIB broadcasts a DHCP request for an IP address. If a DHCP
server is present the request will be processed, and an IP address will be returned to the NIB. Upon receipt of the IP address, the NIB resets, and prints a
network status page. The network status page will list the new IP address (and
Subnet mask and default gateway). Once an IP address has been assigned to the
NIB; it will no longer broadcast DHCP requests.
4
Important
❒ NIB IP address assignment with DHCP will only work when the NIB does not
have an existing IP address.
The DHCP server may grant a temporary IP address, called a temporary lease or
temporary reservation, which expires after a period, or may grant a permanent
or unlimited lease or reservation which does not expire.
Devices that are granted a temporary lease will be notified before the lease expires and asked if they would like to extend the lease. The NIB will continue extending its lease indefinitely (unless prohibited by your DHCP server
configuration) and thus maintain a consistent IP address.
Important
❒ If the NIB is not turned on or is not connected to the network during the period when the DHCP server is sending requests to extend the lease, the lease
will not be extended. The DHCP server will cancel the lease and may assign
the IP address to another device. Therefore, it is highly recommended to explicitly specify the NIB lease as permanent or unlimited in your DHCP server
configuration.
If you prefer not to use DHCP for IP address assignment, it may be disabled with
the MAP utility or by connecting to the NIB address with a browser. The enable/disable DHCP setting may be found in the Setup TCP/IP section under the
Protocols heading.
24
5. Windows NT Configuration
Windows NT Configuration
There are several options for setting up printing in a Windows NT environment.
• If a NetWare server is present, NetWare print services may be used by following the NetWare Configuration instructions in this guide.
• Peer to peer print services may be used by following the Windows 95/98 instructions in this guide, but are only available for Windows NT 4.x, not for
Windows NT 3.51.
• LPR print services may be used via TCP/IP by following the instructions in
this section.
Windows NT printing is very flexible. It is possible to configure the individual
Windows NT or Windows 95/98 workstations to print using a different protocol
than the Windows NT server. For example, a Windows NT server could be configured to print to a NIB via TCP/IP using the instructions in this section. The
NIB could then be designated as shared on the NT server, allowing workstations
to print via the NT server using a different protocol (such as the default NetBEUI).
The Optimum Windows NT printing configuration depends upon the particular
environment and user and administrator experience and preferences. Generally, the LPR printing over TCP/IP covered in the following instructions is the
best choice for environments where TCP/IP is already in use.
Note
❒ Be sure to turn the printer off and on after changing the network configuration.
25
Windows NT Configuration
TCP/IP Required Components

6. UNIX Configuration
UNIX Configuration
UNIX printing utilizes a line printer daemon (lpd) to direct jobs to the printer.
With printer-based lpd, the NIB acts as the line printer daemon host and accepts
print jobs directly.
TCP/IP configuration of the NIB is needed for all versions of UNIX. Please refer
to the NIB Owner's Manual for lpd configuration.
Note
❒ Be sure to turn the printer off and on after changing the network configuration.
Reference
For information on setting IP parameters, see “Configuring the Printer for the
Network with the Operation Panel” in the Operating Instructions that comes
with your printer.
Setting the IP Address
The NIB IP address may be initially set in a variety of ways; including with the
MAP utility when a NetWare server is present, with the UNIX bootp daemon,
with rarp, or with the standard UNIX command line utility, arp.
The following instructions use arp, but the other methods may be used instead,
depending on user preference.
For directions on using one of the other methods, please refer to the NIB Owner's
Manual.
A Turn the printer off and then on and wait for the power-up network status
page to print.
B Add an entry to the hosts file (usually etc/hosts) that includes the printer's
name and the IP address.
For example, to name the printer and associate it with an IP address of
197.42.211.5, place the following entry in the hosts file:197.42.211.5 <PrinterName>
C At the UNIX command prompt,
type: arp -s <desired_IP_address> <NIB_Ethernet_address>
(The Ethernet address is listed on the network status page as Network Address.)
For example, arp -s 197.42.211.5 00:40:AF:13:A2:70
31
UNIX Configuration
D At the UNIX command prompt, type: ping <desired_IP_address>
For example, ping 197.42.211.5 The NIB will not respond to this ping command, but will read the IP address.
E After a few minutes (usually between 1 and 2 minutes, but possibly up to
5 minutes on very large or busy networks), the NIB will reset and print its
network status page.
The new IP address will be listed in the TCP/IP Network Information section.
If the status page doesn't print, recheck the NIB's Ethernet address entry in
the arp command.
Once the status page prints, the new IP address may also be verifies with the
ping command.
Setting Other TCP/IP Parameters
Once the IP address is set, the NIB can be configured via telnet or with a standard web browser.
The following steps describe configuration with a standard browser.
For instructions of configuring via telnet, refer to the NIB Owner's Manual.
6
A In the browser, connect to http://<NIB_IP_address>
For example, http://197.42.211.5
B At the NIB's Home Page, click on Network Configuration.
C Many of the configuration options are password protected.
The default password is: sysadm
The password is case sensitive.
To change the password, select Change Password in the System column.
D Select Setup TCP/IP in the Protocols column and change the settings as appropriate.
If unsure of the correct Subnet mask, and the first number in the NIB's IP address is from 192 to 254, then use 255.255.255.0 as the Subnet mask.
