AXIS ThinWizard -
The web-based management tool for all Axis print servers
Convenient Web-based Management
AXIS ThinWizardTM
AXIS ThinWizardTM is a powerful web-based management
tool for central administration of Axis print servers and all
other Axis products.
What can AXIS ThinWizard offer?
In a TCP/IP network, AXIS ThinWizard helps the
administrator find, monitor and configure all print servers
remotely via a standard web browser. This ensures more
efficient use of time and network resources.
AXIS ThinWizard runs on Windows 95/98, NT and
UNIX/Linux. It provides the following services:
AXIS ThinWizard, Release 2.00
■
Automatic discovery of Axis products on IP networks
The latest software version of AXIS ThinWizard includes
■
Basic network installation, e.g. TCP/IP settings
additional features and benefits:
■
Flexible grouping of Axis products for viewing and
managing several servers as an entity
■
Printer status monitoring, e.g. out of paper
■
Seamless remote management
Configuration Wizard
One or more parameters of several Axis servers can be
changed simultaneously. Also the configuration can be
copied from one server to one or multiple servers.
Upgrade Wizard
Via the upgrade Wizard, the Axis servers automatically
notify the administrator when new firmware becomes
available from Axis. Firmware upgrades are simple. Using
a web browser, administrators can choose firmware
upgrades for one or several servers at a time.
Management of Non-Axis Print Servers
AXIS ThinWizard will also find print servers from HewlettPackard, Intel and Lexmark. With a simple mouse click, the
administrator can manage these print servers via their
internal web pages. Thus administrators with mixed
product networks can benefit from consistent management
Network Groups
and administration by using Axis management software.
By organizing the network into network groups, your print
servers can be monitored more efficiently. A network

network groups as needed.

Use your time and network resources efficiently!
Every print server on the network can be listed with a
descriptive name and physical location.
