taken from the last six characters of the MAC address, without the dashes.
For example, the prefix for the NETQue Token Ring is NQT. Combined
with a MAC address such as 00-00-93-01-A0-6A, the default server name for
this printer server will be NQT01A06A.
The default printer server name is very important and is always used when
installing the printer server for the first time. Once a successful installation
has been accomplished, the default printer server name can be changed.

Services™ (NDS) modes. Before continuing with the installation, make sure
the network adheres to these requirements:
Bindery Mode
•
Clients must support the NetWare Fileserver version 2.x or greater.
NDS Mode
•
Clients must support the NetWare Fileserver version 4.x or greater.
•
Clients managing the NDS tree must be running the NetWare Dos
Requester™ (VLM).
•
An Emulex printer server running printer server software revision 5.0 or
higher.
•
An NDS server no more than 2 hops away from the Emulex printer
server containing an NDS partition replica with the 4.x Pserver object.

Before Installation
We recommend writing down the following parameters from the Setup
Section in Chapter 2. Refer to them during the installation procedure.
Default Server Name: ____ ____ ____ ____ ____ ____ ____ ____ ____
Default Printer Name: ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ _ ___
Choose PSERVER or RPRINTER
The printer server is capable of operating as a PSERVER, RPRINTER or
simultaneously as both. Choose the best configuration to meet your needs.
Using the Emulex printer server as a Novell Print Server (PSERVER):
•
replaces the need for a dedicated Novell PSERVER
•
provides faster throughput than using the printer server as an RPRINTER
operating through a Novell PSERVER
•
occupies one user slot per attached file server
•
supports encrypted or unencrypted passwords
Using the Emulex printer server as a Novell Remote Printer (RPRINTER):
•
requires a Novell PSERVER module somewhere on the network
•
provides slower throughput than using the printer server as a PSERVER
•
occupies one user slot
•
uses the PSERVER module to handle passwords

Automatic Installation
Emulex recommends running the ENSTALL utility. This user friendly
utility automatically configures the UNIX host to support network printing
via TCP/IP with Emulex printer servers.
CD ROM
1) Logon as root at the system prompt.
2) Change to a directory where third party software is typically installed.
For example, /usr
3) Insert the CD-ROM into a drive.
4) Extract the files from the cd-rom to the hard drive.
> #tar xvf mount_point/utils/ps50/unix/50.tar ./emlx
UNIX TCP/IP 4-3
mount_point The directory path mount point for the CD-ROM
drive.
The tar command creates a subdirectory called emlx under the current
working directory and extracts the UNIX utilities into the emlx directory.
5) Go to the Emlx directory:
>
#cd emlx
6) Enter:
>
#enstall -s
When the enstall utility begins, follow the instructions and supply the
requested information. When the ENSTALL program is complete, the
Emulex printer server is ready to use.
Diskette
1) Logon as root at the system prompt.
2) Change to a directory where third party software is typically installed.
For example, /usr
3) Load the UNIX Utility diskette into a 3.5 floppy disk drive.
4) Extract the files from the diskette to the hard drive.
> #tar xvf device_file ./emlx
device_file The UNIX device file for the floppy drive.
For example:
>
#tar xvf /dev/fd0 ./emlx
The tar command creates a subdirectory called Emlx under the current
working directory and extracts the UNIX utilities into the Emlx
directory.
5) Go to the Emlx directory:
>
#cd emlx
6) Enter:
>
#enstall -s
4-4 Chapter 4
When the ENSTALL utility begins, follow the instructions and supply the
requested information. When the ENSTALL program is complete, the
Emulex printer server is ready to use.
Manual Installation
IMPORTANT: This section contains advanced features.
All parameters should be configured by the
Network Administrator. Emulex
recommends running the ENSTALL
program instead of performing a manual
installation.
To manually install the printer server on a UNIX network:
•
Assign the IP address using ARP, BootP, DHCP or RARP.
•
Configure the print queue environment.
ARP
NOTE: ARP, PING and RARP commands do not alter the
subnet mask.
The ARP command offers a convenient means of assigning the printer
server’s initial IP address. The IP address is stored in the printer server’s
permanent and temporary memory. Although the ARP command is standard
on all UNIX platforms, its syntax may vary from one system to another.
Change IP Address
The ARP command cannot be used to change a printer server’s existing IP
address. To change an existing IP address, use telnet.
1) Logon to the printer server as supervisor.
2) Enter:
>
Server>> define server IP IP_address
IP_address
The desired IP address in decimal dot notation.
3) Reboot the printer server.
UNIX TCP/IP 4-5
Assign IP Address
1) Login to the UNIX host as root user.
2) Verify IP address availability.
>
#ping IP_address
IP_address
The desired IP address in decimal dot notation.
You should not receive a response. If a response is received, select
another IP address with the assistance of the network administrator.
3) Assign the IP address.
>
#arp -s IP_address MAC_address
The printer server IP address in decimal dot
notation.
MAC_address The printer server MAC address in hexadecimal [09, a-f] notation.
For example:
> #arp -s 138.239.252.183 0:0:c9:0:c1:a9
IP_address
IMPORTANT:
Do not use leading zeroes in the IP
address or MAC address.
On an AIX system, include an additional argument to the ARP command
to indicate the Ethernet interface:
>
#arp
-s ether IP_address MAC_address
The printer server IP address in decimal dot
notation.
MAC_address The printer server MAC address in hexadecimal [09, a-f] notation.
IP_address
On other systems such as AT&T System V, the ARP command is:
>
#arpbypass -f1 set IP_address
0xnn.0xnn.0xnn.0xnn.0xnn.0xnn
IP_address
n
The printer server IP address in decimal dot
notation.
Represents hexadecimal digits.
4) Turn the printer server off and on.
4-6 Chapter 4
5) Enter:
>
#ping IP_address
IP_address
The printer server IP address in decimal dot
notation.
NOTE: The command interrupt key (usually <Ctrl>C) will
stop the PING command.
Assign Symbolic Name
The user has the option of assigning a symbolic name to the Emulex printer
server. To assign the name, perform these steps:
1) Login to the host.
2) Add this command to the file /etc/hosts (or /usr/etc/hosts).
>
#IP_address server_name
IP_address
serve_name
The IP address just assigned.
The symbolic name describing the server.
For example:
> #138.239.252.184 accounting_printer
NOTE:
If the /etc/hosts file is administered by NIS
(formerly Yellow Pages), update the appropriate
NIS master hosts database instead. Refer to
host documentation for more information.
UNIX TCP/IP 4-7
BootP
Emulex printer servers will accept and configure the following parameters
from a TCP/IP BootP server host:
•
Gateway IP address(es)
•
Host IP address
•
Server Domain Name
•
Server IP address
•
Server Loadfile Path and Name
•
Server Node Name
•
Server Subnet Mask
Any other BootP parameters supplied by a BootP server host will be ignored
by the server code without any error indication.
1) Determine if BootP is running on the host.
BSD:
>
#ps -ax | grep bootp
System V:
>
#ps -e | grep bootp
If BootP is defined for background operation, an active BootP daemon is
displayed.
2) If an active BootP daemon is not listed, enter:
>
#grep bootp /directory/inetd.conf
directory
May be /etc/* or /usr/etc/*
If a BootP is present, it will be listed with its parameters.
3) Login to the printer server as supervisor.
4-8 Chapter 4
4) Enter Emulex printer server command:
>
Server>> define server bootp n m [temp]
n
m
temp
The number of times to request BootP information if
the server IP address is not known (default = 2).
The number of times to request BootP information if
the server IP address is known (default = 1).
Instructs the server to configure the acquired
information in RAM only. If this parameter is
omitted, the information is permanently written in
EAROM (default is permanent).
DHCP
If the UNIX host is configured as a DHCP server, the IP address is assigned
automatically.
NOTE:
The Emulex printer server must always be
configured as “reserved” client by the host DHCP
administration facility. This guarantees that an IP
address assigned by DHCP will be reserved
exclusively for that printer server through its LAN
hardware address.
1) Login to the Emulex printer server.
2) Enter:
>
Server>> define server DHCP n m [temp]
n
m
temp
The number of times to request DHCP information if
the server IP address is not known (default = 2).
The number of times to request DHCP information if
the server IP address is known (default = 1).
Instructs the server to configure the acquired
information in RAM only. If this parameter is
omitted, the information is permanently written in
EAROM (default is permanent).
NOTE: If both n and m are zero, DHCP is disabled.
UNIX TCP/IP 4-9
When the Emulex printer server reboots, the default sequence of IP address
acquisition is to attempt BootP first; if BootP fails, attempt DHCP; if DHCP
fails, attempt RARP.
NOTE: Set the corresponding n and m parameters for
BootP to zero. The host will then attempt DHCP
immediately upon rebooting without attempting
BootP.
RARP
1) Determine if RARP is running on the UNIX host.
BSD:
>
#ps -ax | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
System V:
>
#ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep rarpd
2) Add the following entry in the file /etc/ethers or usr/etc/ethers:
>
#MAC_address server_name
MAC_address The printer server’s MAC address.
server_name The symbolic name.
For example:
> #00:00:c9:01:c1:a9 accounting_printer
3) Add the following entry in the file /etc/hosts (or usr/etc/hosts):
>
#IP_address server_name
IP_address The printer server IP address.
server_name Must match the name entered in the /etc/ethers file.
NOTE:
If the /etc/hosts file is administered by NIS
(formerly Yellow Pages), update the appropriate
NIS master hosts database instead. Refer to host
documentation for more information.
4-10 Chapter 4
When the printer server is booted, the host receives the RARP request from
the printer server. It then sends the IP address in the /etc/hosts file to the
printer server and stores it in the printer server temporary memory.
Configure the Print Queue
The printer server provides remote printing via the Emulex RPRINT utility
on all systems, and LPD on some platforms. ENSTALL automatically
installs RPRINT and optionally supports LPD.
RPRINT is a UNIX program that may be run from a print spooler or invoked
as a stand-alone module. The program takes data from standard input,
connects to a server, and transmits the data. Various features and options
make RPRINT well-suited to most printing applications. These include:
•
Compatibility with BSD and System V hosts. RPRINT uses either the
BSD sockets library or the System V Transport Level Interface (TLI).
•
Automatically generated log files for ease in troubleshooting.
•
Binary or text data selection can be made from the command line or
through an entry in the printcap file.
•
Printer filters that may be enabled before the data is sent to the printer
server.
The method for installing and configuring RPRINT is different for BSD and
System V hosts. Choose the appropriate procedure for your system.
Configure for BSD Hosts
To configure a BSD host with RPRINT:
1) Copy the Emulex utility RPRINT.C to a host system.
This file is found on the UNIX utilities diskette.
2) Go to the subdirectory where RPRINT is loaded.
For example,
> #/usr/emlx
UNIX TCP/IP 4-11
3) Edit the file ENVIRON.H to reflect the appropriate system type.
Typical system parameters for Sun Sparc Stations are:
>
#define SOCK
1
>
#define SYSV
0
>
#define LING
1
>
#define ROBUST 1
4) Enter:
>
#cc rprint.c -o rprint
This compiles and links RPRINT.C.
NOTE: The compile command can vary greatly on different
systems. If the compile command fails, check your
host documentation for the correct syntax and
libraries to include for SOCKETs programming.
5) Create a dummy device file for the remote printer.
>
#mknod /dev/printer_name c 3 2
>
#chown daemon /dev/printer_name
>
#chmod 666 /dev/ printer_name
NOTE: Some systems may also require a chgrp command.
Refer to your system manual for more information.
Major and minor numbers used in the mknod
command may differ as well. Use the same major
and minor numbers found in the /dev/null file.
4-12 Chapter 4
6) Create a directory for the spooled files:
>
#mkdir /usr/spool/printer_name
>
#chown daemon /usr/spool/printer_name
>
#chmod 755 /usr/spool/ printer_name
7) Edit the /etc/printcap file to include an entry for the printer server
printer(s).
For example, the following entry defines a LaserJet IIIsi with the
Postscript option:
>
#emlx_ps|LaserJet_IIIsi|parallel _port:\
:lp=/dev/emlx_ps:\
(dummy device name)
:sd=/usr/spool/emlx_ps:\
(dir for spooled files)
:of=/usr/emlx/rprint:\
(rprint program)
:emlx_n=138.239.252.183:\ (server IP address)
:mx#0:\
(unlimited buffer space)
:sh:\
(suppress burst pg headersheet)
:sf:\
(suppress form feeds)
:emlx_text=disable:\
(required for non-text files)
:emlx_p=2501:
(TCP port number)
8) Initialize the new spool device by using the name in the printcap file.
For example:
> #lpc start emlx_ps
9) Print a test file:
>
#lpr -Pemlx_ps
ps_filename
ps_filename The test file will be printed in PostScript format.
UNIX TCP/IP 4-13
Configure a System V Host
1) Copy the Emulex utility RPRINT.C to a host system.
This file is found on the UNIX utilities diskette.
2) Go to the subdirectory where RPRINT is loaded.
For example,
> #/usr/emlx
3) Edit the file ENVIRON.H to reflect the appropriate system type.
For example, typical system parameters for a generic System V system:
> #define SOCK 1 (0 = no sockets supported)
>
#define SYSV 1
>
#define LING 1
>
#define ROBUST 1
>
#define PRINTCAP “/usr/emlx/printcap”
4) Compile and link RPRINT.C:
If sockets are available, enter:
>
#cc rprint.c -o rprint -lsocket
If sockets are not available, enter:
>
#cc rprint.c -o rprint -lnsl_s
NOTE: Compile commands will vary on different UNIX
systems. Some will not require libraries on the
command string. Others will require one or more
libraries on the compile command.
Typical libraries to use are:
> #1socket
>
#1nsl_s
(System V Rel 3.X)
>
#1nsl
(System V Rel 4.X)
>
#1inet
5) Edit the /usr/emlx/printcap file to include an entry for the printer server
printer(s).
4-14 Chapter 4
For example, the following defines a LaserJet IIIsi printer named
emlx_txt on the parallel port (port 1, TCP port 2501):
> #emlx_txt | LJIII_1 | LaserJetIIIsi:\
:lp=emlx_txt:\
dummy device name
:emlx_n=IP_address:\
server IP addr.
:emlx_p=2501:
TCP port number
The following is an example for a Postscript printer named emlx_ps.
> #emlx_ps | LJIII_1 | LaserJetIIIsi:\
:lp=emlx_ps:\
dummy device name
:emlx_n=IP_address:\
server IP addr.
:emlx_ps=disable:\
:emlx_p=2501:
TCP port number
6) Copy the sample Emulex printer interface file, LP_DUMB, to another
file that corresponds to the selected printer name.
For example:
> #cp lp_dumb lp_emlx
7) Edit the lp_emlx file to specify the correct path to the RPRINT program.
Assuming the RPRINT program is kept in /usr/emlx, enter the second to
the last line of the lp_ emlx file as follows:
(shell commands)
> #/usr/emlx/rprint `basename $0` $1
8) Using UNIX Bourne shell script programming, edit the lp_emlx file and
modify the banner page that precedes the printed output.
9) Install the printer into the System V spooler system.
Most System V spoolers are not required to be shut down to install a
printer, with the exception of HP-UX.
NOTE:
>
For HP-UX, before shutting down the spooling
system, check to see that there are no print jobs
running (enter lpstat -o). If jobs are running,
wait until they are completed.
#/usr/lib/lpshut
(HP-UX only)
UNIX TCP/IP 4-15
>
#/usr/lib/lpadmin -pemlx -v/dev/null i/user/emlx/lp_emlx
>
#/usr/lib/lpsched
>
#/usr/lib/accept emlx
>
#enable emlx
(HP-UX only)
Some systems require that the second line use the string:
>
#v/dev/emlx
10) To make the printer the default system printer, enter:
>
#/usr/lib/lpadmin -demlx
11) Enter:
>
#lp -demlx file_name
file_name
The test file to be printed. If the host is configured
correctly, a banner page (if enabled) and the
contents of this file will be printed If the test fails,
refer to a UNIX system administration manual for
information on printer spooler operation.
4-16 Chapter 4
LPD
In most cases, local print options such as header and trailer banner pages, and
input or output filters are ignored. If this limitation is not acceptable, install
the printer using the Emulex RPRINT remote printing utility.
Configure LPD on a BSD UNIX Host
The following procedure uses native LPD print protocol on a BSD UNIX
host (SunOS or ULTRIX) with the printer server. The procedure for other
UNIX systems such as Solaris, AIX or SCO is completely different (See
UNIX documentation for details).
IMPORTANT: This procedure assumes you want to print
to a single port using the LPD protocol.
1) Enter:
>
#ps -ax | grep -v grep | grep lpd
This will determine if LPD is supported on the system. If the system
does not return a process number for LPD, use RPRINT as described
above. If LPD is supported, proceed as follows:
2) On the host, edit the /etc/printcap file to contain a similar entry:
For example, to send text (non-PostScript) files to port 1:
>
#LJ4_PCL|HP_LaserJet_4|port_1:\
:lp=:\
:rm=node_name:\
:rp=TEXT:\
:mx#0:\
:lf=/usr/spool/lpd/ERRORLOG:\
:sd=/usr/spool/lpd/LJ4_PCL:
UNIX TCP/IP 4-17
For sending PostScript or graphics files to port 1:
>
LJ4_PS|HP_LaserJet_4|port_1:\
:lp=:\
:rm=node_name:\
:rp=PASSTHRU:\
:mx#0:\
:lf=/usr/spool/lpd/ERRORLOG:\
:sd=/usr/spool/lpd/LJ4_PS:
node_name
LJ4_PCL
LJ4_PS
TEXT
PASSTHRU
The same entered in the /etc/hosts file in
Step 4.
Example printer name.
Example printer name.
Valid default queue name. Adds a carriage return
after each linefeed in the file. Use this queue for
standard UNIX text
Valid default queue name. Passes the file directly to
the printer without modification. Use this queue for
all non-text files.
NOTE: Do not use the TEXT queue for Postscript, HPGL
or any non-text files.
3) Create the spooling directory.
For example:
> #mkdir /usr/spool/lpd/LJ4_PCL
4-18 Chapter 4
4) Add the server’s node_name to the /etc/hosts file.
For example:
> #IP_address
IP_address
node_name
node_name
The printer server IP address in decimal dot
notation.
The same entered in the /etc/printcap file in step 2.
5) To start the printer queue:
>
#lpc start printer_name
printer_name
The remote printer queue name.
6) Enter:
>
#lpr -Pprinter_name file_name
printer_name
The remote printer queue name.
file_name
Any text file name.
Configure LPD for Non-UNIX Hosts
Many non-UNIX hosts using TCP/IP support printing through the LPD
protocol. Refer to the host’s TCP/IP documentation to configure printers
using LPD. Information needed to configure the printer server includes:
•
The IP address of the printer server
•
The remote queue (printer) name
•
TEXT and PASSTHRU as the printer server’s default queue names
•
Either default TCP or acceptable TCP ports depend upon host
environment requirements.
UNIX TCP/IP 4-19
LPSTAT
Use LPSTAT to determine the current status of a printer connected to the
printer server.
From any host terminal:
1) Enter:
>
#lpstat -o printer_name
printer_name
The remote printer queue name.
2) Verify display.
The screen displays the number of jobs in the queue, and a line for each
job, listing the job name and origination.
For example:
> #lpstat -o emlx _txt
3 jobs for emlx are found in the example:
nq001 from host king - printing
nq002 from host queen
nq003 from host king
If there are no jobs in the queue, the command returns a blank line.
Configure for Syslog Support
UNIX Syslog Support provides the ability to log certain printer status
changes. Messages are logged into a standard UNIX syslog facility at one or
more UNIX hosts or other hosts supporting the TCP/IP Syslog facility.
NOTE: Knowledge in the administration of the syslog
facility on the UNIX syslog server host is required.:

Non Bi-Directional Printers
Emulex printer servers provide support for printers that do not have bidirectional communication capabilities. Without this capability, the printer
cannot supply the host with a list of supported fonts. The host must
download fonts to the printer each time it sends an AppleTalk print job. The
printer server can supply this information to the host on behalf of the printer,
thus saving an appreciable amount of time on each job.
To build a font list on the Emulex printer server:
1) View the available fonts on your printer.
2) View the font list on the printer server.
3) Add or remove fonts on the printer server font list.
NOTE: These steps are explained in detail in the following
section.

Lan Manager 7-1
Requirements
Before beginning, verify the network conforms to these requirements:
•
Microsoft LAN Manager version 2.1 or higher
•
Microsoft OS/2 version 1.3
•
TCP/IP or NetBios running on each LAN Manager file server or client.
Version 2.2 of LAN Manager includes the required TCP/IP stack, all
other LAN Manager versions need the TCP/IP stack added. NetBios is
included in LAN Manager.
Emulex Print Manager running on LAN Manager allows up to 16 print queue
connections per server (OS/2 limitation) and an unlimited number of LAN
Manager servers to redirect their output to an unlimited number of printer
servers.
This allows for the sharing of printers between LAN Manager clients
operating under other operating systems.
Print Manager Distribution Files
The Emulex Print Manager runs on LAN Manager. Print Manager allows
you to configure file servers and clients for TCP/IP and NetBios printing.
Emulex printer servers can receive multiple print jobs from file servers and
clients, simultaneously printing TCP/IP and NetBios.
NOTE: The files on CD-ROM are under the path
\utils\ps50\Lanman.
The utilities diskette or CD-ROM in this package contains the following
files:
INSTALL.EXE - The installation utility that creates the required directories
and copies the appropriate files to the system.
NPM.EXE - The OS/2 Presentation Manager program that installs and
configures printers. This program also starts, pauses and stops the printing
process on servers and provides real-time statistics for each OS/2 server’s
printer queue.
NPMST.EXE - Automatically starts the print process upon OS/2 server boot.
7-2 Chapter 7
NOTE: In order to print using the NetBios protocol, the
user must logon to the server’s domain. Add the
“logon/D:domain” command before NPMST.EXE
and after net start in the startup.cmd.
NPM.INF - The Emulex Print Manager’s information file. Do not modify
the contents of the NPM.INF file.
RPRINT.EXE - Implements the print processes running in background on the
OS/2 server for TCP/IP printing. When you send a print job, a print process
is created in the background which redirects the output of a print queue
associated with this printer to an Emulex printer server.
RPRINTNB.EXE - Implements the print processes running in background on
the OS/2 server for NetBios printing. When you send a print job, a print
process is created in the background which redirects the output of a print
queue associated with this printer to an Emulex printer server.
NPMINST.EXE - Allows the creation of printers using a command line
interface. This program must not be run while NPM.EXE is running.
NPMINST allows the user to configure printers remotely without using an
OS/2 Program Managers window interface.
NOTE: Enter NPMINST/? for a list and explanation of
command options.
TELRCF.EXE - Remote Emulex printer server configuration program using
TCP/IP.

Enter Scripts
TELRCF provides a convenient method for downloading an entire
configuration script to the printer server. A sample script file (SCRIPT.TXT)
is provided on the distribution diskette or CD-ROM as a guide to creating
scripts.
Using a text editor:
1) Create the script.
The first line of the script must contain the login password, followed by a
set type softcopy command. To execute privileged commands, add the
set privilege command, followed by the privileged password command to
the script. The last line of the script must contain the logout command.
The following is an example of a server command script. This command
configures a new service name (for example, 1j4a), for remote printing
on a printer server serial port. It uses TCP port 3001 and configures the
port’s baud rate to 19200.
> access
>
set type softcopy
>
set privilege
>
system
>
change service 1j4a 3001 telnet disabled port 2
>
change port 1 access remote speed 19200
>
logout
2) Save the script with the name SERVCNFG.SCR.
3) Create an icon called TELRCF IP_address
In the parameters field, enter:
>
-h IP_address -f \emulex\servcnfg.scr

Requirements
Before beginning, verify the network conforms to these requirements:
•
IBM LAN Server version 3.0 or higher
•
IBM OS/2 version 2.0 or higher
•
TCP/IP or NetBios running on each LAN Manager file server or client.
NetBios is included in LAN Server.
Emulex Print Manager running on LAN Server allows up to 16 print queue
connections per server (OS/2 limitation) and an unlimited number of LAN
Server servers to redirect their output to an unlimited number of printer
servers.
This allows for the sharing of printers between LAN Server clients operating
under other operating systems.
Print Manager Distribution Files
The Emulex Print Manager runs on LAN Server. Print Manager allows you
to configure file servers and clients for TCP/IP and NetBios printing. Emulex
printer servers can receive multiple print jobs from file servers and clients,
simultaneously printing TCP/IP and NetBios.
NOTE: The files on CD ROM are in the
\utils\ps50\Lanservr path.
The utilities diskette or CD-ROM in this package contains the following
files.
INSTALL.EXE - The installation utility that creates the required directories
and copies the appropriate files to the system.
NPM.EXE - The OS/2 Presentation Manager program that installs and
configures printers. This program also starts, pauses and stops the printing
process on servers and provides real-time statistics for each OS/2 server’s
printer queue.
NPMST.EXE - Automatically starts the print process upon OS/2 server boot.
8-2 Chapter 8
NOTE: In order to print using the NetBios protocol, the
user must logon to the server’s domain. Add the
“logon/D:domain” command before NPMST.EXE
and after net start in the STARTUP.CMD.
NPM.INF - The Emulex Print Manager’s information file. Do not modify
the contents of the NPM.INF file.
RPRINT.EXE - Implements the print processes running in background on the
OS/2 server for TCP/IP printing. When you send a print job, a print process
is created in the background which redirects the output of a print queue
associated with this printer to an Emulex printer server.
RPRINTNB.EXE - Implements the print processes running in background on
the OS/2 server for NetBios printing. When you send a print job, a print
process is created in the background which redirects the output of a print
queue associated with this printer to an Emulex printer server.
NPMINST.EXE - Allows the creation of printers using a command line
interface. This program must not be run while NPM.EXE is running.
NPMINST allows the user to configure printers remotely without using an
OS/2 Program Manager window interface.
NOTE: Enter NPMINST/? for a list and explanation of
command options.
TELRCF.EXE - Remote Emulex printer server configuration program using
TCP/IP.

Assigning an IP Address
You must assign an IP address prior to installing with Windows NT.
DHCP
If the UNIX host is configured as a DHCP server, the IP address is assigned
automatically.
NOTE: The Emulex printer server must always be
configured as “reserved” client by the host DHCP
administration facility. This guarantees that an IP
address assigned by DHCP will be reserved
exclusively for that printer server through its LAN
hardware address.
1) Login to the Emulex printer server.
2) Enter:
>
Server>> define server DHCP n m [temp]
n
m
temp
The number of times to request DHCP information if
the server IP address is not known (default = 2).
The number of times to request DHCP information if
the server IP address is known (default = 1).
Instructs the server to configure the acquired
information in RAM only. If this parameter is
omitted, the information is permanently written in
EAROM (default is permanent).
NOTE: If both n and m are zero, DHCP is disabled.

The NETWORK SETTINGS dialog box will open.
9) Select CLOSE.
10) Restart the computer.
A TCP/IP printer can now be created on this Windows NT computer.
Create a TCP/IP Printer
Use Print Manager to create a TCP/IP printer. The following information is
required:
•
The IP identifier of the host where the printer is connected.
This can be the DNS name or the IP address. A direct-connect printer
has its own IP identifier. A printer connected to a UNIX computer uses
the computer’s IP identifier.
•
The printer name as identified on the host.
This is the name defined on the UNIX computer or defined by the directconnect printer manufacturer.
The computer where the TCP/IP printer is created must have TCP/IP
installed and configured with the TCP/IP Network Printing Support option.
From the PRINTER menu in PRINT MANAGER:
1) Select CREATE PRINTER.
Windows NT 9-5
This opens the CREATE PRINTER dialog box:
Figure 9-1: Create Printer Menu
2) Enter a name in the Printer Name box.
This name can have up to 32 characters and can be the same as the
printer name identified on the printer’s UNIX host. For a direct-connect
printer, see the hardware documentation to find the name by which the
network printer identifies the print queue.
3) Select the appropriate driver in the Driver pulldown list.
Optional text may be entered in the Description box to inform network
users about the printer.
4) Select OTHER in the PRINT TO box.

Figure 9-3: Add LPR Compatible Printer
IMPORTANT: Read through Steps 7 and 8 before
proceeding.
7) Enter the DNS name or IP address of the host for the printer in the NAME
OR ADDRESS OF HOST PROVIDING LPD box.
Use either the DNS name, the IP address of the direct-connect TCP/IP
printer, or of the UNIX computer to which the printer is connected. The
DNS name can be the name specified for the host in the HOSTS file.
Windows NT 9-7
NOTE: LPR stands for Line Printing Utility, and LPD
stands for Line Printing Daemon, which is how
these elements are known on UNIX.
8) Enter the name of the printer.
This name is identified by the host in the NAME OF PRINTER ON THAT
MACHINE box.
This is either the direct-connect printer itself or the UNIX computer. For
a direct-connect printer, this is whatever name was used to create the
printer while running LPD.
For example, the TCP/IP printer being created will interact with a UNIX
computer running the print server component (LPD). If LPD recognizes
a printer attached to the UNIX computer by the name Crisp, enter the
name Crisp in this box.
Unique Printer Queue Names
Although not mandatory, the printer queue names TEXT and PASSTHRU
are printer server defaults. The user may define a unique printer queue name
if the following conditions apply:
•
The LPD service cannot have a physical port number assigned. If it
does, then printer names TEXT or PASSTHRU must be used.
•
The unique printer name must have a TCP port number other than 515
assigned to it. Lower case names are acceptable when enclosed within
double quotes (“ ”).

enable|disable Enable is equivalent to TEXT and inserts a carriage
return <CR> with each line feed <LF>. Disable is
equivalent to PASSTHRU and sends data with no
changes.
For example:
The following commands change the name of the printer on the
parallel port to Parallel which supports a PostScript printer:
>
Server>> change service lpd port all disable
>
Server>> change service parallel 3001 port 1
To include an ID for the newly created printer, enter the following
command:
> Server>> change service parallel id “HP4si on
default printer server name in Room 1231”
3) Return to Windows NT to complete the remaining steps:
4) Click the SHARE THIS PRINTER ON THE NETWORK option in the CREATE
PRINTER dialog box:
Select this option to provide other users with access to this printer.

5) Enter a Share Name.
This name can contain a maximum of eight characters. A default shared
resource name is seen in the SHARE NAME box, but it can be changed.
6) Enter printer location.
This is an optional entry in the Location box. Users will see this location
information when they connect to the printer.
7) Click OK.
9-10 Chapter 9
In PRINT MANAGER, the printer name specified in the CREATE PRINTER
dialog box appears in the title bar of the printer’s window, as shown:
Figure 9-5: Print Manager
For computers configured with Microsoft Network Client version 2.0 for
MS-DOS, users see only the shared name, not the printer name. Users who
connect to this TCP/IP printer can select and print to it from applications.
Users and administrators can use Print Manager to secure and audit the use of
the printer and change its properties.
Use the LPR connectivity utility at the command prompt to print a file to a
host running an LPD server. The LPQ diagnostic utility can also be used to
obtain the status of a print queue on a host running the LPD server. For more
information, see the entries for LPR and LPQ in the Windows NT System
Guide.
Printing to Windows NT from UNIX
The LPDSVC service is the server side of TCP/IP printing for UNIX clients.
If any UNIX client on the network wants to print to a printer connected to a
Windows NT computer, this service needs to be running on the Windows NT
computer so it can accept requests from UNIX clients.
The LPDSVC service supports any print format, including plain-text. It does
not perform any additional processing.
Windows NT 9-11
There are two different ways to start or stop the LPDSVC service. At the
command prompt:
1) Type net start LPDSVC or net stop LPDSVC.
2) Press ENTER.
In the CONTROL PANEL:
3) Choose the SERVICES option.
4) Select LPDSVC in the service list.
5) Click START.
On the UNIX computer, use the Windows NT printer by typing:
>
# lpr -S NTHost - P LpdPrinter myfile.txt
NTHost
LpdPrinter
myfile.txt
The Windows NT Server running the LPDSVC
service. This Windows NT computer should be
listed in the HOSTS file on the UNIX computer or on
the DNS server.
The name of the printer created on NTHost.
The file to be printed.
The LPDSVC service is independent of the LPRMON service. The
LPRMON service allows a Windows NT computer (and all clients who
can access this computer) to print to a printer connected to a UNIX
system, as described in the previous section.
Logging into the Printer Server
You can login to the printer server remotely from a UNIX workstation or
locally from a console terminal.
Remote Login
1) Login to a UNIX TCP/IP workstation.
The prompt may appear different than the one shown below.
