Chapter 2
LAN Installation
2
This chapter describes how to install the Print Server in your Local Area Network.
Procedure
Before use
•
Make sure the printer you used is not a GDI (Graphical Device Interface) printer.
Printserver is not support GDI interface. If connect the GDI printer to printserver, it
will work incorrectly. You can refer to the PDF file in GDI Printer folder of the CDROM. There have list some printers that designed with GDI interface. We are
afraid the printer is a new one that is not included in this PDF file. So please check
to the printer manufacturer for ensure the printer work interface before you buy the
printer.
1. Preparation
•
Ensure the power is OFF. Do not connect the Print Server while power is ON.
•
Find the Default Server Name for your Print Server.
The Default Server Name is shown on a sticker on the base of the device. It consists of 8 letters and/or digits as SCxxxxxx. This name also represents its MAC
address. For example, SC123456 shows its MAC address as 00-c0-02-12-34-56.
Record this name; it may be needed during configuration.
2. Connect the Printer or Printers
Connect the printer or plotter to the Print Server's printer port(s), as appropriate:
•
•
USB Ports - Use the USB cable supplied with your printer to connect the printer to
the Print Server's USB port
Parallel Ports - Use standard Parallel port cables to connect the printer to the
parallel port on the Print Server. Parallel printer cables should be less than 3 meters long.
3. Connect the Network Cable
•
Connect the network cable to the proper connector on the Print Server. The Print
Server will automatically recognize whichever connector is used.
On FPS-2PUW and FPS-2PUWG, connecting the LAN cable will disable the Wireless interface, because the default "Infrastructure
mode" wireless setting can NOT be used with the LAN interface.
To use both the LAN and Wireless interfaces, the Wireless mode
must be set to "Ad-hoc".
After configuration, the LAN interface can be disconnected if not
required.
Page 11
LAN Installation
4. Power Up
Plug in the power adapter cable and power up. Start-up will take only a few seconds.
Use only the Power Supply unit provided with the device. Power
Supply units for different models are not interchangeable.
5. Check the LEDs
For FPS-5P-x
•
•
The Red Error LED should flash, then turn Off. When the Red LED goes off and
the Green LED remains lit or flashes, the Print Server is ready.
If your model supports 10Base-T and 100Base-TX, check the 10/100Base-TX link
LED or LEDs next to the LAN connection. If the Auto-Negotiation fail, the LED (or
both LEDs, if there are 2) will be off. In this case, set the DIP switches to suit your
LAN, as described in the DIP Switch Table in Chapter 1.
For FPS-2PUW
•
After plug power adapter to printserver, PWR LED will light on.
•
If printserver has connected to a hub or switch and power on, LAN LED will blink.
If the auto-negotiation fails, the LED will be off.
•
If printserver is working with Wireless interface, WLAN LED will be blink.
•
When the printserver is sending data to your printer, the ACT LED will blink.
For FPS-1UA
•
After plug power adapter to printserver, PWR LED will light on.
•
If printserver has connect to hub or switch, PWR LED will start flashing. If the
auto-negotiation fails, the LED will keep light on.
•
After printserver connected to LAN. If you don’t connect printer to printserver yet,
USB LED will be flashing.
For FPS-2PUWG
•
After plug power adapter to printserver, PWR LED will light on.
•
If printserver has connected to a hub or switch and power on, LAN LED will blink.
If the auto-negotiation fails, the LED will be off.
•
If printserver is working with Wireless interface, WLAN LED will be blink.
•
When the printserver is sending data to your printer, the P1/P2 LED will blink.

Chapter 3
Print Server Configuration
3
This chapter provides an overview of the configuration process.
Overview
The Print Server is designed to support many different platforms, and the configuration
required would depend upon the environment in which it is installed.
•
When you first time install your printserver to your LAN. We will suggest you install
utility “Bi-Admin” to configure your PrintServer in Windows. It can provide an advance and complete configuration for your printserver. See Chapter 5 for details
on using Bi-Admin.
•
If you have installed NetBEUI protocol in your network, you don’t need to configure the printserver. You can select NetBEUI protocol in Peer-To-Peer driver installation to let your PC attach to the PrintServer to print, through NetBEUI protocol.
•
PCs wishing to use the printer attached to the Print Server always require configuration. See Chapter 4- Client Configuration for details.
•
If using a NetWare Server (V3, 4, or 5 in "compatibility" mode):
•
For configuration and management, the Bi-Admin program (detailed in Chapter 5 – Bi-Admin Management Utility) is recommended.
•
If using NDPS, refer to Appendix B - Network Server Configuration.
•
If you wish to use a queue-based printing system using Windows NT
Server/Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003, the Network Server must be configured
as detailed in Appendix B - Network Server Configuration. However, it is not necessary to use a Network Server-based queue; client PCs can print directly to the
Print Server by installing the Peer-to-peer Print Driver in Driver/PTP20 folder on
the CD-ROM.
•
AppleTalk is also supported, and normally no configuration of the Print Server is
required. See the Macintosh section of Chapter 4 for details of client configuration.
Other configure method for Print Server
If you do not have a Windows 32 platform available, use one of the following methods
to configure the Print Server.
Web Browser
Only available on FPS Series. See Chapter 6 - Web Interface
Setup for details.
FTP
Using this method, the configuration file is downloaded from the
Print Server, edited, then sent back. No software needs to be installed.
See the UNIX manual for details. The Unix manual is on the CDROM, in the Manual\Unix folder.
Note: FPS-2PUW, FPS-2PUWG and FPS-1UA do not support
FTP to download the configuration file.
Page 13
WPConfig
This program requires Windows 3.1, and the IPX/SPX protocol.
This program is on the CD-ROM, in the Utilities\WPConfig
folder. Instructions for using the program are in a sub-folder of the
Manual folder on the CD-ROM.
PSConfig
Menu-based DOS program, intended only to configure the Print
Server for use with NetWare V2, 3 and 4.
This program is on the CD-ROM, in the Utilities\DOS folder.
Instructions for using the program are in a sub-folder of the Manual folder on the CD-ROM.
Quickset
Command-line DOS program, intended only to configure the Print
Server for use with NetWare V2, 3 and 4. This program also has a
limited ability to configure the NetWare Server itself.
This program is on the CD-ROM, in the Utilities\DOS folder.
Instructions for using the program are in a sub-folder of the Manual folder on the CD-ROM.

Chapter 4
Client PC Configuration
The chapter details the client configuration required on LAN clients to use the
printer or printers attached to the Print Server.
Overview
Before performing client configuration, the following conditions must be met:
•
Print Server must be installed on your network.
•
Print Server must be configured (refer to Chapter 3).
•
Both the Print Server and the attached printer must be powered ON.
•
If the client PC uses a Wireless connection to communicate with the Print Server,
the PC's wireless settings must be correct, as described below.
Wireless Settings for client PCs
The FPS-2PUW / FPS-2PUWG incorporate Wireless Stations for IEEE 802.11b/g devices. This section is only relevant to users of the FPS-2PUW and FPS-2PUWG.
To print to the FPS-2PUW or FPS-2PUWG, Wireless stations must ensure that the
following Wireless Settings are correct.
SSID
Ad-hoc Mode
Infrastructure Mode
Must match the other Wireless stations, unless the SSID is null or
"any".
Must match the Access
Point.
If its SSID is null or "any", a Wireless station can join any Ad-hoc
group.
Channel
WEP Settings
Should match the other Wireless
stations.
Access Point sets the
Channel used.
However, when joining an existing
ad-hoc group, a Wireless station
must use the Channel in use, rather
than its own Channel.
Wireless stations automatically locate the correct
channel.
Must match the other Wireless stations.
Must match the Access
Point.
To change these settings on your PC, use the software provided with your Wireless
card.
If your PC's wireless settings are not correct, you will not be able to print to the FPS2PUW or FPS-2PUWG via the Wireless connection.
Page 15
Printing Methods
The Print Server supports a number of printing methods:
•
Peer-to-Peer Print Driver is installed by running setup.exe in the CD-ROM
Driver/PTP20 folder. The print jobs are stored (queued) on your PC, and sent
to the Print Server when it is available.
•
Server-based Print Queue means that all print jobs are stored (queued) on the
Network Server (e.g. NetWare, Windows NT/2000/XP/Server 2003) and then sent
to the Print Server. This allows the Network Administrator to modify the Print
Queue. For example, an important job can be moved to the head of the queue.
•
Windows SMB printing is a Microsoft standard for using a "Network Printer". No
additional software needs to be installed on your Windows PC, and printing from
MS-DOS programs is supported. However, because the Print Server cannot store
files, large print jobs may cause problems.
•
AppleTalk is also supported, and normally no configuration of the Print Server is
required. See the Macintosh section of this chapter for details of client configuration.
Which printing method should I use?
•
If using Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000, XP or Server 2003, the easiest method is
to install the Peer-to-peer Print Driver on the CD-ROM.
•
If using Windows, and you need to print from MS-DOS programs, or you don't
wish to install additional software, use SMB. However, SMB is not suitable for
large, complex documents, so if you need this as well as MS-DOS printing, you
should install BOTH the Peer-to-peer Print Driver and SMB printing. MS-DOS programs can use the SMB printer, Windows programs should use the Peer-to-peer
Print Driver.
•
If your LAN has Network Servers (e.g. Windows NT, Windows 2000 Server, Windows XP Server, Windows Serer 2003 and NetWare) use the method advised by
your Network Administrator. The Print Server can print via a queue located on a
Network server, if desired.
•
Unix users - refer to the Unix Manual on the CD-ROM, in the Manual/Unix directory.
•
Macintosh users - refer to the Macintosh section of this chapter.
Checking your Network Protocols (Windows)
Your PC must have EITHER the TCP/IP or NetBEUI protocols installed.
•
If using the Peer-to-peer Print Driver, the installation program will check this for
you.
•
If using Windows SMB Printing, you must check manually, as described below.
(This is for Windows 95 only. All later versions of Windows have TCP/IP installed
by default.)
1. Select the Settings - Control Panel - Network option on the Start Menu. You
should see a screen like the one following:
Page 16
Figure 1: Network Configuration
•
The top line in the list (NetBEUI -> PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter) indicates that
the NetBEUI protocol is installed on this PC. Your PC will show the name of
the your Network card rather than "PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter".
•
The highlighted line (TCP/IP -> PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter) indicates that
TCP/IP is installed. Your PC will show the name of the your Network card
rather than "PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter".
2. If neither line is present:
•
Install the NetBEUI protocol by selecting Add - Protocol - Microsoft - NetBEUI
- OK. You may be prompted for your Windows CD-ROM.
•
If required, you can also install TCP/IP. However, depending on your LAN environment, TCP/IP may require further configuration.
3. If either protocol is already installed, proceed with installation.
Page 17
Windows Peer-to-Peer Print Driver
With this printing method, print jobs are stored (queued) on your PC, and then sent to
the Print Server when it is available.
Install Peer-To-Peer Print Driver
Before performing the following procedure, the Print Server must be installed on your
LAN, and configured as described in Chapter 3. Both the Print Server and the attached printer should be powered ON.
1. Insert the supplied CD-ROM into your drive. Please run SETUP.EXE in

•
Select the Printer Manufacturer and Model to match the printer connected to
this port on the Print Server, and complete the Wizard.
7. This printer will now appear in your Printers folder (Start - Settings - Printers) and
can be used like any other printer. However, SMB printing is not suitable for large
complex print jobs - you should use the Peer-to-peer Print Driver instead.
Printing from Windows DOS mode
Windows can redirect print data from a parallel port on your PC (e.g. LPT1) to a network printer. This redirection is called "Capture Printer Port", and is useful for MSDOS programs. The MS-DOS program is configured to use LPT1 (parallel port 1 on
the PC), but Windows "captures" the print data and sends it to the network printer.
Capture settings can be set by:
•
Saying "Yes" to the prompt "Do you print from MS-DOS programs?" when installing a Network Printer.
•
Or, using the Capture Printer Port menu option shown in Figure 5 above.
This will result in a dialog like the following, where you can select the port on the PC to
be captured. Normally, this will be LPT1 (parallel port 1 on the PC).
Figure 6: Capture Printer Port
The File menu in the Printers folder also has options for Capture Printer Port and End
Capture.
Printing from pure MS-DOS program
If you are in pure DOS environment, please ensure you have attached to your server
and ensure the server had enable TCP/IP printing.
WinNT:
Please enable "TCP/IP printing" function, then you can entry your printserver parameter to NT server.
Win2000:
In Printer, you can add a new TCP/IP port to work. Please follow the steps to add this
port.
Press Add port => select "standard TCP/IP port" => press "New port" => press "Next"
=> entry your printserver IP address to "Printer name or IP address" => press "Next"
=> select "Custom" and press "Settings" button in Device type option => select protocol option to LPR and entry Queue name (L1) in LPR setting then press ok => press
Next => press OK. Now you can use our printserver to print in Win2000 and share the
printer to your network.
Then you can use this command to attach to server and catch the printserver.
C:\>net use lpt1 \\WinNT (or Windows Server name)\HP6L (printer name)
C:\>type ???.txt >lpt1 ♀(Ctrl+F)

Page 28
Macintosh (AppleTalk)
The Print Server supports AppleTalk (EtherTalk), PAP, ATP, NBP, ZIP and DDP protocols, enabling Macintosh computers on the network to view and use the Print Server
as a regular AppleTalk printer.
Normally, no configuration is required. For advanced users, the PSTool program has
been provided specifically for the Macintosh environment.
Software Requirements
System 7.x OS or newer.
AppleTalk Setup

2. Click Network.
3. Ensure that EtherTalk is selected under AppleTalk Connection.
4. Click Chooser. The Chooser panel will open.
5. Click on either the LaserWriter 8 icon (recommended) or the LaserWriter 7 icon.
LaserWriter 8 makes use of the fonts installed in the printer itself, so the printing
response time is quicker. LaserWriter 7 uses the fonts installed in the computer,
which increases network traffic and takes more printing time.
6. Select a Print Server from the printer list by clicking on the appropriate name. The
Print Server′s name is recorded on a label on the bottom of the Print Server as
"Server Name". This name consists of 8 digits and/or numbers.
7. Click on the Close box.
Configuration is now complete.
Printing
Printing with the Print Server installed in an AppleTalk network is identical to normal
printing. Just select File - Print and choose the desired printer.

Chapter 6
Web Interface Setup
This chapter explains how to use your Web Browser to configure the Print
Server.
Overview
The Print Servers have incorporate the HTTP server. This allows you to connect to the
Print Server and configure it using your Web Browser. Most browsers should work,
provided they support tables and forms.
Note: FPS-5P-S, FPS-5P-M, FPS-2PUW, FPS-2PUWG and FPS-1UA web interface
are just a little bit different. Because they have support some different functions that
others without. FPS-5P-S/FPS-5P-M have support IPX/SPX protocol, FPS-2PUW and
FPS-2PUWG have support Wireless interface and IPP, and FPS-1UA has support IPP.
Preparation
Because it supports dynamic IP Address allocation using DHCP, BOOTP, or RARP,
the Print Server ships with an IP Address of 0.0.0.0. This is NOT a valid IP Address.
Therefore, you must do ONE of the following:
•
Check your DHCP server (if you have one), and determine the IP Address allocated to the Print Server.
•
Use the Diagnostic Button (if fitted) to print a to print a report which includes the
current IP address. (Press the Diagnostic Button, and hold it for 2 seconds.)
•
Use the Bi-Admin or another Print Server utility to allocate a valid IP Address to
the Print Server.
•
Add an entry to the arp table to associate the hardware address of the Print
Server with the desired IP address, as follows:
arp -s IP_Address 00:c0:02:xx:xx:xx
(Unix)
arp -s IP_Address 00-c0-02-xx-xx-xx
(Windows)
Where:
IP_Address is the IP Address you wish to assign to the Print Server.
00:c0:02:xx:xx:xx is the hardware address of the Print Server.
Example (Unix):
arp -s
192.168.0.21
00:c0:02:12:34:56
Example (Windows):
arp -s
192.168.0.21
00−c0−02−12−34−56
Note: The hardware address of the Print Server is shown on a sticker on the base of
the device.
Page 40
Connecting to the Print Server
1. Start your Web Browser.
2. In the Address box, enter HTTP:// followed by the IP Address of the Print Server.
e.g.
http://192.168.0.1
3. You will then be prompted for the password. If no password has been set, just
press ENTER.
4. Use the menu bar on the top of the screen to move about. Remember to save
each screen before changing to a different screen.

screen. On your PC, some Wireless status screens may display
this name as the Access Point in use.
Network Type
Select the correct value for your Wireless LAN.
SSID
(Service Set
Identifier)
•
Infrastructure mode is used when each Wireless station
connects to the Wireless Access point. This also provides
access to the wired LAN.
•
Ad-hoc mode is used when there is no Wireless Access
Point, and each Wireless station communicates directly with
other Wireless stations. This is the older standard.
To communicate, all Wireless stations MUST use the same
SSID/ESSID.
The default value of FPS-2PUW is null. The default value of
FPS-2PUWG is default.
Note! The SSID is case sensitive.
Channel No.
Select the value you wish to use on your Wireless LAN. If you
experience lost connections and/or slow data transfers you may
need to experiment with different channels to see which is the
best.
Link Info Button
Click this button will open the sub screen.
WEP Data Privacy
WEP Encryption
If None (default), data is NOT encrypted before being transmitted.
64 Bit Key
If selected, data is encrypted, using the default key, before being
transmitted.
The receiving station must be set to 64 Bit Encryption, and have
the same Key value in the same position in its key table. Otherwise, it will not be able to decrypt the data.
Default Key
Select the key you wish to be the default. Transmitted data is
ALWAYS encrypted using the Default Key; the other Keys are
for decryption only.
Key Table:
This table is used when Encrypting and Decrypting data. All stations, including this Access Point, always transmit data encrypted using their default key. The key number (1, 2, 3, 4) is
also transmitted. The receiving station will use the key number
(1, 2, 3, 4) to determine which key value to use for decryption. If
the key value does not match the transmitting station, decryption
will fail.
The easiest way to ensure there are no problems is to have
every Station, including the Access Point, use the same key table (all entries identical). Then, it does not matter which key is
used as the default key.
Page 48
128 Bit Key
If selected, data is encrypted using the key before being transmitted. The receiving station must be set to use 128 Bit Encryption, and have the same Key value. Otherwise, it will not be able
to decrypt the data.
Key
Enter the key value you wish to use. Other stations must have
the same key
WEP Authentication
Options are "Open System" or "Shared Key".
Some Wireless cards do not support both methods. Check your
Wireless card's documentation to determine the correct value.
Ensure that all Wireless stations use the same setting as the
Access Point.
Default Transmit Key
You may select 1 of the 4 WEP key to encryption.
Passphrase
You can enter a word to the field and then press “Generate
Keys” button. That can help you to make a key.

Chapter 7
Special Features
7
This chapter covers the special features of the Print Server.
Overview
The Print Server has four (4) special features:
•
Some Print Servers support IPP (Internet Printing Protocol).
•
All model support the proprietary Internet Mail Printing system.
•
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is supported by all models.
•
Wireless Station - supported by FPS-2PUW and FPS-2PUWG.
Internet Printing Protocol (IPP)
IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) is a new standards-based system to allow remote
printing from a PC to any accessible printer. Normally, the printer will be attached to a
computer or other device which functions as an IPP Server.
For client PCs, it is necessary to install a compatible IPP Client program. The Client
must also know the IP Address or URL or the IPP Server.
IPP support is NOT available on models, FPS-5P-S and FPS-5PM.
Do NOT attempt to use IPP on these models.
IPP Server Configuration
The Print Server contains the necessary firmware to act as an IPP Server. No additional configuration is necessary. However, the following requirements must be met.
•
The Print Server must have a valid IP Address. For printing via the Internet, the
Print Server's IP Address must be external (allocated by your ISP), rather than an
IP Address on your local LAN.
•
Any Router, Gateway or Firewall linking your LAN to the Internet must NOT block
the IPP protocol.
•
You must advise clients of the correct URL or IP Address of the IPP Server. To
use a URL rather than an IP Address, you need to register the domain name for
the URL.
•
Unless clients are using Windows 2000, XP or Server 2003, you must provide
your clients with the supplied IPP Client software. If it is not convenient to provide
the CD-ROM, supply the IPP_CLIENT.EXE file, located in the IPP folder.
Page 51
IPP Client Setup - Windows 95/98/Me/NT 4.0
The IPP Client Software can be installed on any of the following systems:
•
Window 95/98/Me
•
Windows NT 4.0
Installing using IPPCLIENT.EXE
1. Please run IPPCLIENT.EXE in Driver\IPP folder on CD-ROM by clicking on
Start, Run, and enter D:\Driver\IPP\ippclient.exe (where D is the letter of your
CD-ROM drive). Click OK.
2. The IPP Setup program will then run.
3. Follow the prompts to complete the installation.
IPP Client Configuration (Windows 95/98/Me/NT 4.0)
1. Run the "Add IPP Port" program entry created by the installation. A screen like the
following will be displayed.
Figure 17: IPP Port
2. If Internet access from your location is via a Proxy Server, check Access IPP
Server via Proxy Server, and enter details of your Proxy Server. (This will be the
same as your Browser configuration.)
3. Enter the IP Address or URL of the IPP Server.
4. Click Select Device Port to view the available ports on the IPP Server, and select
the appropriate port. A connection to the IPP Server will be established at this time.
5. Click Save to create the IPP port on your system. You will see a message confirming that the port has been created, then the following dialog:
Page 52
Figure 18: Select Printer for IPP Port
6. Either select an existing printer to use the new port, and click OK.
OR
Click the Add New Printer button to create a new printer to use the IPP port. This
will start the Add Printer wizard. Follow the prompts to complete the process. Ensure that the new printer uses the IPP port.
The installation is now complete.
•
To create additional IPP Ports, repeat the entire procedure.
•
The Proxy Server and other options are set individually for each IPP Port.
Changing the IPP Port Settings
After the IPP port is created, you can reach the screen shown in Figure 17: IPP Port
using the Windows Port Settings button:
1. Open the Printers folder (Start - Settings - Printers)
2. Right-click the IPP Printer, and select Properties.
3. Locate and click the Port Settings button (Details or Port tab, depending on your
version of Windows).
There are 2 settings - Retry Interval and Retry Count - which can be adjusted if you
have problems connecting to the IPP Server.
•
Retry Interval sets the time interval (in seconds) between connection attempts.
Increase this number if you have a poor connection, or the remote server is very
busy.
•
Retry Count sets how many connection attempts will be made. Increase this
number if you have a poor connection, or the remote server is very busy.
Page 53
IPP Client Setup - Windows 2000, XP and Server 2003
Windows 2000, XP and Server 2003 have their own IPP Client, and there is no need
to install the supplied IPP Client Software. To use Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003's
IPP Client with the Print Server, follow this procedure:
1. Start the Add Printer wizard.
2. Select Network Printer, and click "Next" to see the Locate your Printer screen, as
shown below.
Figure 19: Windows 2000 - Locate your Printer
3. Select Connect to a printer on the Internet or on your Intranet, and enter the URL
of the IPP Server as follows, where IP_Address represents the IP Address of the
IPP Server, and 631 is the port number.
Parallel Port 1
Ip_Address:631/ipp/P1
Parallel Port 2 (if exists)
Ip_Address:631/ipp/P2
Parallel Port 3 (if exists)
Ip_Address:631/ipp/P3
These entries are case sensitive. They must be
entered as shown, with "ipp" in lower case, and
P1, P2 and P3 in UPPER case.
4. If the connection can be established, and the printer on that port is on-line, the
following dialog will be displayed.
Page 54
Figure 20: Windows 2000: No printer driver
5. Click "OK", and then select the printer manufacturer and model to match the
printer connected to the port on the IPP Server.
6. Click "Next", and complete the Wizard. The IPP printer is now ready for use.
Using IPP Printers
The IPP Printer can be selected and used like any other Windows printer. If the IPP
Server is not on your network, your Internet connection needs to be active.
If you wish to check the availability of the remote IPP Server, you can use the Query
IPP Printer program installed with Add IPP Port.
An IPP Server may be unavailable for any of the following reasons:
•
It is powered off.
•
A printer problem has caused the IPP Server to cease responding, and a restart
(reboot) is required.
•
The Server's IP Address has changed.
•
The Internet connection for the IPP Server is down.
•
Network congestion causes the connection attempt to time out.
If using the supplied IPP Client software, there are 2 settings - Retry Interval and Retry
Count - which can be adjusted if you have problems connecting to the IPP Server.
See the previous section Changing the IPP Port Settings for details.
Page 55
Internet Mail Printing
The Internet Mail Printing System allows users to print data to your printer across the
Internet. Users send the Internet Print Server an E-Mail, with the print job normally
sent as an attachment to the E-Mail. The Print Server will retrieve the E-Mail and print
it.
System Requirements
Mail Server
•
Accessibility. The Mail Server must be accessible by the intended clients or users. Normally, this means a permanent connection to the Internet.
•
Protocols. The Mail Server must support the POP3 and SMTP protocols. The
Internet Printing System uses these protocols and the most common E-Mail formatting standards:
•
MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions)
•
Base64 Encoding (for mail attachments)
Internet Print Server
•
TCIP/IP Protocol. The LAN must use the TCP/IP protocol.
•
Mail Server Access. The Print Server must be able to access the Mail Server
using a single IP address.
•
Mail Account. The Print Server must have a Mail Account. Users print by sending
an E-Mail to this mail account.
User (Client) Requirements
•
Internet Connection. Either through a LAN, or dial-up.
•
E-Mail address. This is used to notify the user that their print job has been done,
or if there any problems.
•
Printer Driver. Users must have a printer driver which matches the printer connected to the remote Internet Print Server.
•
Print Capture Software. To print more than plain text, users require InterNet
Printing Port software to capture the print job and convert it into an E-Mail attachment.
The Internet Printing Port software is available for the following operating systems:
•
Microsoft Windows 95
•
Microsoft Windows NT 3.51 or later.
Page 56
Internet Mail Printing Configuration
The Print Server must be configured with the data in the following table.
The supplied Bi-Admin utility program, or the Web-base interface can be used to set
the following entries on the TCP/IP screen.
Mail Server IP Address
The IP Address of the E-Mail Server used by the Print
Server.
Mail Account
The name of the E-Mail Account used by the Print
Server.
Mail Account Password
Enter the password for the above Mail Account here.
Check Mail Interval
Sets how often to check for mail. Values range from 0
to 65,535 minutes, with 0 meaning a continuous connection and 1 as the default.
Print Banner
If YES (default), a banner page is printed to identify
the owner of the print job.
Redirect Mail Account
Jobs which can not be printed will be sent to this account. If blank, unprintable jobs will be discarded.
Default Printer Number
Printer number for all Internet print jobs. Only one port
can be selected. Users on the LAN can also use this
port.
Print every E-Mail
If ON, then all E-Mail received is printed. Otherwise,
only E-Mail from the InterNet Printing Port will be
printed.
Activate Response Mail
If YES, all print jobs receive an E-Mail response. If
NO, only users who set this option in their InterNet
Printing Port software receive an E-Mail.
Printer Model ID String
This text field identifies the printer used for Internet
printing. This value is sent to remote users upon request.
Page 57
User Software
The software provided for remote users (InterNet Printing Port) should be installed by
everyone intending to use Internet printing. Otherwise, remote users can print correctly only if:
•
They send E-Mail directly to the Print Server Mail Account, using their normal EMail application.
•
The E-Mail contains plain text only.
•
The Internet Print Server is configured with Print every E-Mail ON.
Installation of the InterNet Printing Port software will create a new printer port. After
attaching the correct printer to this port, users can print to the Internet Printer using
any Windows application.
Installation - User Software
1. Run the InterNet Printing Port installation program SETUP.EXE
2. Default values for the installation are:
•
Directory - C:\Program Files\Internet_Printer
•
Start Menu folder - InterNet Printing Port Driver
3. You will then see the Configure Port screen, as shown in the following screenshot.
Figure 21 InterNet Printer Port
4. The following data must be provided.
Port Name
Enter a descriptive name (e.g. "WAN") for the new
printer port.
Page 58
Remote Printer
E-mail Address
The E-Mail address for the Internet printer. Your
print jobs will be sent to this E-Mail address.
Mail Server Name
or IP Address
This is the name or IP Address of your Mail Server.
If you are on a LAN, ask the LAN Administrator. If
using a dial-up connection, use the data provided
by your ISP.
Your Internet
E-mail Address
The normal address that people use to send you
E-mail.
Retry Interval
(Seconds)
If unable to connect to the E-Mail server, retry after
this time period (1 to 255 seconds, 30 is usually
OK).
Reply Notification
Mail
Check to receive an E-Mail when your print job has
been processed.
5. On completion, a new printer port will have been created.
Using the new Port
The Windows Control Panel is used to connect the correct printer to the InterNet Printing Port. In Windows 95/NT, the procedure is:
1. Select the Printer which matches the remote printer, then choose Properties, as
shown in the example below.
Figure 22 InterNet Printer Properties
2. Select the new port - WAN (InterNet Printer) in the example - as the port for this
printer.
•
If you do not have the correct printer driver, or you wish to create another
printer using an existing driver, use the Windows Add Printer facility.
•
Using the Windows Port Settings or Configure Port facility will reveal the same
Configure Port screen shown in Figure 21 InterNet Printer Port on page 58.
•
If you wish to print to multiple Internet Printers, use the Windows Add Port facility to add a new InterNet Printer port. Ensure that the correct data is entered
in each port, and that each port has a unique name.
Page 59
Checking the Printer Driver
To make sure that the correct printer driver for the remote printer is installed on your
system, you can use the InterNet Printing Port to send an E-Mail to the Internet Printer.
The procedure is as follows:
1. Connect your default printer to the InterNet Printing Port.
2. Check that "Reply Notification Mail" in the InterNet Printing Port is ON.
3. From Notepad or another text editor, print a short message (e.g. "This is a test
print") to the Internet Printer.
You will receive a reply E-Mail containing the "Printer ID" which will identify the printer
attached to the Print Server. If this does not match the printer driver you are using,
install the correct printer driver.
Printing through the Internet
1. Create or open the document you wish to print.
2. Select the Printer connected to the InterNet Printing Port.
3. If you do not have a permanent Internet connection, establish a connection now.
(Note: The InterNet Printing Port will NOT establish a dial-up connection, but it will
send the E-Mail the next time you are connected.)
4. Print the document.
5. The InterNet Printing Port will generate an E-Mail and send it to the remote printer.
The document will be encoded and sent as an attachment to the E-Mail. You will
see a progress screen similar to the example below:
Figure 23 InterNet Printing Progress
6. Close the Internet connection if you opened it in Step 3.
7. If the "Notify after print job" option is set, you will receive an E-Mail when your job
is printed.
Canceling a Print Job
Users cannot cancel a Print Job once it has been sent, but Print Jobs can be canceled
at the Print Server. In Bi-Admin, the Control - Abort Mail Print Job menu option can
be used to cancel a print job which has already started printing.
Page 60
SNMP
The Print Server supports SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol). This allows
network supervisors to monitor and control the Print Server using network management platforms such as HP OpenView, IBM SystemView, etc.
The appropriate MIB file must be imported into your SNMP management program using the Import-Compile command. Check your management program for details on
this procedure. The MIB files are provided in the MIB folder on the CD-ROM, as follows:
Mib1p.mib
Single port models.
Mib3p.mib
Models with 3 parallel ports
FPS-1UA, FPS-2PUW and FPS-2PUWG are not support SNMP protocol. So you can
not find the MIB file for them.
Configuring the Print Server for SNMP
Before using a SNMP Management station to manage the Print Server, the following
settings should be assigned to it, in addition to the IP Address, Gateway Address, and
Subnet Mask.
SNMP Settings
SysContact
Text Field - Name of the contact person.
SysLocation
Text Field - Location of the contact person.
Management Station
IP Address(s)
Up to 4 Management Stations can be entered.
Trap Receiving
IP Address(s)
Up to 4 Trap Receiving Stations can be entered.
Management Station Settings
For each Management Station, the following fields are available:
Access Permission
Options are:
Read Only
Read/Write
Not Accessible
Community String
Leaving this blank will disable management by this station.
Trap Receiving Station Settings
For each Trap Receiving Station, the following fields are available:
Community String
Leaving this blank will disable management by this station.
Trap Enable
Use this option to Enable/Disable Trap Receiving by this
station.
Trap Severity
In this version, all traps are level 1.
Page 61
Wireless Configuration
Wireless Models - FPS-2PUW, FPS-2PUWG
FPS-2PUW and FPS-2PUWG are Wireless stations, NOT access point. Like all other
Wireless stations, they have 3 work modes:
• 802.11 Ad Hoc mode - No Access Point is used, Wireless stations communicate
directly with each other. This is the current standard.
•
Ad Hoc mode - No Access Point is used, Wireless stations communicate directly
with each other. This is the older standard.
Of the two (2) Ad-hoc modes, "802.11 Ad Hoc" mode is recommended. If your Wireless LAN Card doesn't provide "802.11 Ad
Hoc" mode, try "Ad Hoc" mode on the PC and "802.11 Ad Hoc"
on the FPS-2PUW and FPS-2PUWG. If this fails, select "Ad-hoc"
mode on the Print Server.
•
Infrastructure (Default) - All Wireless stations connect to the Access Point. This
allows connection to both other Wireless stations and the wired LAN.
FPS-2PUW and FPS-2PUWG do NOT allow both the LAN connection and "Infrastructure" mode.
In "Infrastructure" mode, connecting a LAN cable will disable the
Wireless interface.
Required configuration
SSID
Ad-hoc Mode
Infrastructure Mode
Must match the other Wireless stations, unless the SSID is null or
"any".
Must match
Point.
the
Access
If its SSID is null or "any", a Wireless station can join any Ad-hoc
group.
But since the FPS-2PUW and FPS2PUWG is fixed devices (rather
than roaming), their SSID should
not be null or "any".
It's recommended to assign value
to SSID for FPS-2PUW or FPS2PUWG.
Channel
Should match the other Wireless
stations.
Access Point sets the Channel used.
However, when joining an existing
ad-hoc group, a Wireless station
must use the Channel in use, rather
than its own Channel.
Wireless stations automatically locate the correct channel.
For a device like the Wireless Print
Server in a fixed location, it is best
to set them to the Channel providing the least interference and best
Page 62
performance.
WEP Settings
Must match the other Wireless stations.
Must match
Point.
the
Access
Two (2) methods are available to perform the required configuration:
•
Bi-Admin management utility program - see below for details.
•
Web-based setup - see Chapter 6 for details.
Bi-Admin Wireless Screen
Installation and use of the Bi-Admin Windows utility is described in Chapter 5.
Clicking the Wireless icon, or selecting Configuration - Wireless on the menu, will display the following screen.
Figure 24: Wireless Screen
Regulatory
Domain
It is illegal to use this device in any location outside of the regulatory domain.
Station Name
The name used to identify this Wireless station.
Page 63
SSID
•
If using an ESS (Extended Service Set, with multiple access
points) this ID is called an ESSID (Extended Service Set
Identifier).
•
To communicate, all Wireless stations MUST use the same
SSID/ESSID. Change this value, or change the other Wireless stations, to ensure each Wireless station has the same
value.
•
The default value is "null", so the Wireless station can join
any Ad-hoc group.
Note! The SSID is case sensitive.
Channel No
Network Type
To communicate in "802.11 Ad-hoc" or "Ad hoc" mode, all Wireless stations MUST use the same Channel number.
•
If using "802.11 Ad-hoc" or "Ad-hoc" mode, select the value
you wish to use on your Wireless LAN.
•
If using "Infrastructure" mode, the Channel is selected
automatically, to match the Channel used by the Access
Point.
•
If you experience interference (shown by lost connections
and/or slow data transfers) you may need to experiment
with different channels to see which is the best.
Select the correct value for your Wireless LAN.
•
802.11 Ad-hoc mode is used when there is no Wireless
Access Point, and each Wireless station communicates directly with other Wireless stations. This is the current standard.
•
Ad-hoc mode is used when there is no Wireless Access
Point, and each Wireless station communicates directly with
other Wireless stations. This is the older standard.
•
Infrastructure mode is used when each Wireless station
connects to the Wireless Access point. This also provides
access to the wired LAN.
Encryption
WEP Disabled/
Enabled
If Disabled (default), data is NOT encrypted before being transmitted.
If Enabled, you must provide either the 64 Bit key table or the
128 Bit keys, as described below. The key is used to encrypt
the data before transmission.
Page 64
64 Bit
•
If selected, data is encrypted, using the default key, before
being transmitted. The receiving station must be set to 64
Bit Encryption, and have the same Key value in the same
position in its key table. Otherwise, it will not be able to decrypt the data.
•
Default Key - select the key you wish to be the default.
Transmitted data is ALWAYS encrypted using the Default
Key; the other Keys are for decryption only.
Key Table:
This table is used when Encrypting and Decrypting data. All
stations, including this Access Point, always transmit data encrypted using their default key. The key number (1, 2, 3, 4) is
also transmitted. The receiving station will use the key number
(1, 2, 3, 4) to determine which key value to use for decryption. If
the key value does not match the transmitting station, decryption will fail.
The easiest way to ensure there are no problems is to have
every Station, including the Access Point, use the same key
table (all entries identical). Then, it does not matter which key is
used as the default key.
128 Bit
If selected, data is encrypted using the key before being transmitted. The receiving station must be set to use 128 Bit Encryption, and have the same Key value. Otherwise, it will not be able
to decrypt the data.
WEP Authentication
Options are "Open System" or "Shared Key".
Some Wireless cards and Access Points do not support both
methods. Check your documentation to determine the correct
value to use.
Page 65
Wireless Link Info Screen
After clicking the "Link Info" button on the Wireless Screen, a screen like the example
below will be shown.
Figure 25:Link Info Screen

Troubleshooting
8
This chapter describes some problem situations, which may arise, and the solutions to them.
Overview
If you encounter printing difficulties, please refer to the appropriate section.
If, after following the advice in these documents, the Print Server still does not function
properly, please contact your dealer for further advice.
Hardware & LAN Problems
Problem No. 1
All the Print Server's LEDs are off.
Solution No. 1
Check the power supply or power connection.
Problem No. 2
Print Server's status light continuously stays lit.
Solution No. 2
Reset Print Server by unplugging the power supply and plugging it
back in.
Problem No. 3
Print Server's status light and power light stay on continuously and
do not turn off.
Solution No. 3
Reset the Print Server by unplugging the power supply or by pushing the reset push button, if fitted.
Problem No. 4
The Print Server unit can not be found on the LAN, so configuration
is not possible.
Solution No. 4
If using 10/100Base-TX:
•
Check the Hub. The link LED for the port to which the Print
Server is connected should be ON. If it is Off, there is a problem in the network cable.
•
On the Print Server, check the LED(s) next to the connector. If
the LED is not ON (or neither LED is On, if there are 2), the
network connection is not working. Check the Ethernet cable
and connectors. If they seem OK, set the DIP Switches of the
Print Server to match your LAN environment.
If using TCP/IP:
Problem No. 5
•
Ensure that there are no routers between the Print Server and
the PC used for configuration.
•
Ensure that the PC used for configuration has the TCP/IP network protocol installed. Test its network connection by seeing if
you can locate other LAN devices from the PC. (e.g. Use Network Neighborhood and try to browser the network.)
I am using DHCP, and getting an IP Address conflict involving the
Print Server.
Page 67
Solution No. 5
If the Print Server is left on, but the DHCP server is turned off, then
the Print Server will retain its IP Address without the DHCP Server
being aware of it. Simply reset the Print Server so it will obtain a
new IP Address.
This problem would also arise if you assigned static IP Address,
which is within the range used by the DHCP server. If so, use another address which is NOT within the range used by the DHCP
server.
AppleTalk (Macintosh)
Problem No. 1
Why do I get an incorrect printout?
Solution No. 1
Some possible reasons are:
•
You may have chosen Binary encoding to print the file. Try to
use ASCII encoding.
•
Some of the fonts, which are in your print file may not be supported by the printer. Try selecting LaserWriter 7 instead of
LaserWriter 8.
Problem No. 2
Can't find the Print Server's name in the Chooser.
Solution No. 2
Try the following:
1. Make sure that AppleTalk is on (the button next to Active is
highlighted in the Chooser).
2. Make sure the printer has been on and in the READY state for
a few minutes.
3. Make sure the printer has not been renamed since its last appearance in the Chooser.
4.
If the printer resides on a network with multiple zones, make
sure the correct zone is selected from the AppleTalk Zones
box in the Chooser.
Problem No. 3
My document didn't print to the right printer.

Problem No. 6
I can't select the "Remaining from:" item in the print dialog box.
Solution No. 6
If you have selected the Layout value, "2 Up", or "4 Up", you cannot access the Remaining from item. Choose other selections.
Problem No. 7
A cover page prints either on the first or the last page of the
document.
Solution No. 7
Select one of these solutions:
•
Turn the cover page feature off.
•
Insert extra page breaks in your document to avoid the cover
page printing on the first or last page of your document.
•
Install the Apple LaserWriter 7 driver. You are having trouble
printing with the Apple LaserWriter 8 driver.
Problem No. 8
Why do I have trouble printing with the LaserWriter 8?
Solution No. 8
Your application software may not be compatible with the LaserWriter 8 driver or your system may not meet the requirements of
the LaserWriter 8 driver. Use the Apple LaserWriter 7 driver instead.
Problem No. 9
The colors on my printed output do not match the colors on my
computer screen.
Solution No. 9
When the printer receives a color file, it tries to match the printed
output color to the screen color. Sometimes the printer cannot
match up the colors as closely as wanted. To alleviate this problem, perform the following steps:
•
Choose "Calibrated Color/Grayscale" in the Print pop-up menu
in the Print Options dialog box. The printer will make adjustments to match the colors.
•
Check your monitor to make sure all settings (for example,
brightness) are adjusted correctly.
Problem No. 10
When I send a print job, I get a PostScript Command error or no
print out.
Solution No. 10
Check the communication protocols. The computer, Print Server
and printer must all be configured to the same communication protocol.(either Binary or ASCII).
To configure your system:
1. Choose which protocol you are going to use. You should
check your printer; it may not give you a choice.
2. Set your printer to the correct protocol.
3. Use the computer's Print submenu to configure your computer
to use the protocol you have chosen.
4. Configure the Print Server to use the same protocol as the
printer and computer.

Novell NetWare
Problem No. 1
My Print Server cannot print the jobs sent to the print queue.
Solution No. 1
Try the following:
1. Check if the printer attached to the Print Server is on-line.
2. Check if your Print Server is logged into the file server (See
Problem 2 below.).
3. Check the current status of the queues used by the Print Server,
and ensure the queues are active.
4. Check if the NetWare printer number is correct.
0 = parallel port 1 of the Print Server.
1 = parallel port 2 of the Print Server.
2 = serial port or parallel port 3.
5. Check to see if the Print Server is a static queue server to the
queue.
Locate the Print Server Object, and check the Queues Serviced
by Printer. Ensure that the correct queues are on the list.
6. The total number of queues to be serviced may be over the limit
of 56. If so, reduce the number of queues.
Problem No. 2
My Print Server is configured as a Novell Print Server, and cannot
log in to a File Server.
Solution No. 2
The following steps may solve this problem:
1. Check the Novell file server's name. If it is over 20 characters
long, rename it using no more than 20 characters.
2. Check that the Print Server's configuration data, especially the
password, is correct.
3. Check the NetWare server. If using Bindery mode, check the
master file server to see if the login status of the Print Server is
Ready. If it is not, check the error message and perform the required corrective action.
4. If the Print Server is servicing more than one file server, check
to see that all required file servers are in the list of "File Servers
To Be Serviced". If not, insert the required file server name to
the list.

I connected and configured a WPS (Windows Printing System)
printer as described, but I can't get the print job to print.
Solution No. 3
Printer drivers for WPS printers poll the printer before sending print
data. Since the printer is networked, the printer is not found and no
data is sent. The solution is to add your printer as a network printer
as described in Solution 1 above.
Note: The screens shown in Solution 1 are from Windows 95. Other
versions of Windows may look slightly different, but the process is
identical. If using Window NT, 2000, XP or Server 2003, do NOT
enable Sharing for the printer.
Problem No. 4
When printing from some software applications such as Power
Point, it takes a long time and the print out is incorrect.

The FPS-5P-M/FPS-5P-S are fully support both Bindery and NDS Novell systems.
With either Bindery or NDS, two (2) NetWare operating modes are possible - Print
Server and Remote Printer. Print Server mode is recommended.
Novell Distributed Printing Services (NDPS) under NetWare 5 is also supported.
Configuration Methods (Bindery or NDS)
The following configuration methods are available. In each case, you must be logged
into the required NetWare Server with ADMIN rights.
Also, if using Windows, Novell's Client32 should be installed on your PC. Without Client32, only limited configuration changes can be made on the NetWare Server.
Setup Wizard
Using the Setup Wizard is recommended. This allows configuration of the Print Server
in NetWare Print Server Mode, which is the recommended system.
Page 84
Bi-Admin
For more control and flexibility, or to use NetWare Remote Printer Mode, you can
use the supplied Bi-Admin management utility. Provided you have Novell's Client 32
installed, Bi-Admin will allow you to configure the NetWare Server as well as the Print
Server.
•
Bi-Admin is installed by run the Setup.exe in Utility\Bi-Admin folder in the
CD-ROM.
•
See Chapter 5 for general information on using Bi-Admin.
•
The NetWare Manual (in the Manual\NetWare folder on the CD-ROM) contains
detailed information on using Bi-Admin with NetWare Servers.
Other Methods
If you are unable to use Windows-based programs for configuration, the following
methods are available to configure the Print Server:
WPConfig
This program requires Windows 3.1, and the IPX/SPX protocol.
PSConfig
Menu-based DOS program, intended only to configure the Print
Server for use with NetWare V2, 3 and 4.
Quickset
Command-line DOC program, intended only to configure the Print
Server for use with NetWare V2, 3 and 4. This program also has a
limited ability to configure the NetWare Server itself.
•
These programs are provided on the CD-ROM, in the Utility folder.
•
WPConfig has a SETUP program; the other programs need only to be copied to
the desired folder on your PC.
•
The documentation for these programs is provided in sub−folders of the Manual
folder on the CD-ROM.
•
PSConfig and WPConfig do NOT configure your NetWare Server. It is necessary
to use PCONSOLE to create the necessary print object and queues, and ensure
the appropriate users have access rights to the print queues.
Configuration Data
The Print Server requires the following "General" data, and the data for the mode
(Print Server or Remote Printer) you are using.
General
Device Name
The device name (Default Server Name) is shown on a
