EPSON® Ethernet Card Supplement
This guide includes new information about your EPSON®
multiprotocol Ethernet interface card and software.
If you are using the card with Apple® Macintosh a computers on
AppleTalk ® or TCP/IP networks, please disregard the Macintosh
section in your EPSON Type B Ethernet Interface Card User's Guide
and follow the steps in this supplement.
In addition to the operating systems mentioned in the Ethernet card
User’s Guide, the card also supports Windows 95 and Windows NT
4.x.

status sheet button
You can print a status sheet after you finish initializing the card.
Turn on the printer and press the status sheet button. The status
sheet gives you information about the Ethernet card including the
current configuration, serial number, and address of the card. Keep
the status sheet; you need the information to configure the card.
Using the Ethernet Card With NetWare on a WAN
If you use the Ethernet card in a NetWare environment over a WAN
(Wide Area Network) and connect it to a general phone line
(including ISDN), the card may open the dial-up-router and packets
may be sent to the WAN. To avoid this problem and possible phone
fees, mask the vendor code in the dial-up-router as shown below:
00:00:48:xx:xx:xx
For details on how to mask the vendor code, ask your network
administrator or see your NetWare documentation.

Configuring the Ethernet Card for TCP/IP and Windows 95
Make sure that the Ethernet card installed in the printer is on the
same network segment as the computer you are using to configure
the card. Also, find out that computer’s IP address and the IP
address that you will assign to the Ethernet card.
Note:
lf you do not know how to find out your computer’s IP address or the IP
address for the Ethernet card, ask your network administrator, or follow
the instructions that follow this section.
Follow these steps to configure the card:
1.
Find the hardware address (node number) on the top of the
status sheet you printed out after initializing the card. (See
page 2.) If you need to, print out another status sheet.
2.
Double-click the MS-DOS Prompt icon to open a DOS prompt.
3.
Set up the routing table, using the following command:
ping <IP address>
for example: ping 127.0.1.1
4.
Add an entry in the ARP table that assigns an IP address to the
hardware address of the Ethernet card. Use the following
command:
arp -s <IP address> <node address>
for example: arp -s 127.0.1.200 00:00:48:92:BD:9A
5.
Start a continuous “ping” to the card, using the following
command with the card IP address:

This shows that the Ethernet card is set up for TCP/IP correctly.
If you receive 4 lines of “Request Timed Out,” The card is not set up
correctly. Check to make sure the card is on the same network
segment as the workstation you are using to configure it and that
you typed in the correct IP and hardware addresses.
Before you can print using TCP/IP, you need to install the Status
Monitor and add a printer port. See your EPSON Status Monitor 2
User’s Guide for instructions.
Note About IP Addresses and Subnet Masks
If you don’t have a network administrator, you can assign IP
addresses in the range of 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254. Each
computer or other device connected directly to the network must
have a unique IP number. The subnet mask should be 255.255.255.0.
However, you should not use these addresses if your network has a
direct (rather than dial-up) connection to the Internet.
