SNMP Setup
TCP/IP networks use a standard management protocol called Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP). SNMP is widely used in the industry as a solution for remote
network management and monitoring of networking devices. SNMP actually includes a
protocol, a database structure specification, and a set of database objects. The database
objects are contained in a standard database called Management Information Base (MIB)
that is stored on the networking device called SNMP agent. The print server's SNMP
implementation runs in a TCP/IP environment.
A host on the network running Network Management System (NMS) software can
access the print server device by reading and writing the MIB objects stored in the device.
The Network Management Systems are available from many third-party vendors, such as
Hewlett-Packard's OpenView.
45
When accessing (traversing) MIB objects in the print server using NMS software called
SNMP manager, you need to provide a community name in each SNMP request for
authentication purpose. The print server supports up to two community names. The default
community name is public (case-sensitive), with Read Only access right in default.
When an unusual condition or activity occurs, the SNMP agent alerts the SNMP
manager through SNMP traps. Following list summaries SNMP trap messages that the print
server will send out.
Activities/SNMP Trap Messages
Description
Link Up or Link Down
When the network interface on the print server fails, a link down
trap message is generated; if the network interface comes back
to life, a link up trap message is sent.
Cold Start or Warm Start When the print server restarts, the cold start or warm start trap
message is generated.
Authentication Failure
When the print server received a SNMP request with a
community name that does not match the community name the
print server is configured with (stored in the print server's
memory), an authentication failure trap message is generated.
In the print server's SNMP implementation, the following MIB objects are available for
updating.
MIB Object Names
system.sysContact
Description
Indicates the network administrator's name.
system.sysName
Indicates the print server's name for identification.
system.sysLocation
Indicates the location of the print server.
snmp.snmpEnableAuthenTraps
Enables or disables the function of sending SNMP Authentication
Failure trap message to the network administrator, if the
community name within a SNMP request is not correct.
Users can set up print server’s SNMP functions by using their browsers.

Basic TCP/IP Installation Overview
When installing your print server in a TCP/IP environment, IP addresses are essential as a
basic means of communications. It is therefore necessary to first assign an IP address to
54
your print server unit. After assigning an IP address, the print server can be configured
accordingly.
Assigning an IP Address
The first step to install a print server on a TCP/IP network is to assign the print server an IP
address and other related TCP/IP settings before the print server can function. You can
select the following two methods to specify an IP address the print server. Each method will
be detailed in the following section.
1. Use the Network Print Monitor utility.
2. Manually specify (using DOS commands or UNIX text-mode commands. This
applies to Windows NT/2000/XP and UNIX systems).
Note: The Network Print Monitor can only search for the print server(s) over the same
network segment the Windows NT/2000/XP/UNIX computer is located. You would like
to install a print server on a different network segment.
DHCP
The print server supports DHCP feature, allowing the print server to obtain an IP address and
related TCP/IP settings automatically from a DHCP server. While the print server supports
DHCP, we strongly recommend you manually specify a fixed IP address to the print server.
By default, the print server’s DHCP function is disabled.

9. Troubleshooting
General Troubleshooting Overview
The most common problems, which cause the print server to perform improperly, are
covered in this chapter. If a problem still exists after reading this chapter, please contact your
dealer for technical support.
LED Light Indicators
The print server is equipped with seven LED lights to assist in diagnosing problems that are
the result of the network and/or the print server hardware itself.
Status (Red)
When the print server unit is powered on, the Status LED will flash five times as part of the
unit’s Power On Self Test (POST). This indicates that the print server hardware is properly
configured. This LED, however, may flicker whenever the data are being transmitted and
printed.
Note: Make sure that the Red LED flashes five times (POST) upon connecting the power. If
the unit does not flash five times, contact your dealer for a replacement or repair.
W-LAN (Green)
Data is being transmitted and received via the W-LAN port.
Power Related Problems
The print server requires an external AC power adapter in order for it to function. If you have
a power problem, check to see whether the power cord or its connectors are damaged. More
importantly, check to see that the AC power adapter included with the print server matches
the AC voltage in your country or area. Using an incorrect AC adapter will damage your print
server.
Print Port Related Problems
Printing data failure may be caused by a loose connection of the print server to the
Centronics parallel port of the printer. Check to see if any of the pins on the 36-pin connector
71
are damaged. In addition, check the cable connection. If the pins are damaged, contact your
dealer for a replacement connector.
Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP Troubleshooting
Multi-Segment LAN Environment Installation (through the Network Print Port)
If your print server and Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP are located on two different
segments, and your Windows NT server is used as the router/gateway you will need to
implement the following procedures in order for your print server to function properly:
Add the RIP for NWLink IPX/SPX compatible transport. See RIP for NWLink IPX/SPX
compatible transport Installation Procedure later in this section.

Moving Your Computer to A New Segment
If you are using the print server through the Network Print Port on your NT or Windows
95/98/Me computer and your computer is going to be moved onto another segment, you
have to reconfigure the print server on your computer to use your print server. However, this
situation is like moving the print server to a new segment. Please refer to the “Moving the
print server to a new segment” section for more detailed reconfiguration instructions.
Novell NetWare Troubleshooting
Many printing problems can be traced back to incorrect or incomplete print server
installations. It is always wise to check the installation configurations first.
In some cases, if necessary, delete the print server, print queue(s) or other setting(s). Next
recreate the necessary parameters or reconfigure the print server by running the PSAdmin.
TCP/IP Troubleshooting
When you are configuring a new print server on your NT/UNIX server through LPR Port
printing under TCP/IP protocol, you might encounter the following problem in your initial
installation steps:
" I can do the "arp" command. However, when I am going to ping or tftp the print server, it
always shows Request timed out. I have checked the print server’s power and it exactly
passed the POST. Besides, the network cabling is OK. As such, I can't do tftp command to
get and put the print server's configuration file and save its IP address permanently. I can't,
therefore, continue installing the print server."
Regarding this problem, there are three possible causes:
A. The print server's Node ID you specified in the "arp" command is not correct.
If this is the case, please ensure the Node ID field in the corresponding entry of the print
server's IP address in NT's ARP cache table is correct by typing the following command at
NT's DOS prompt. "arp -a"
If the Node ID shown on the screen doesn't match the print server's Node ID, please follow
the instructions below to reset the entry.
1.
At NT's DOS prompt, type "arp -d <print server's IP address>" to delete the current
entry.
2.
Type "arp -s <print server's IP> <print server's Node ID>" to specify a new ARP entry.
3.
Refer to Chapter 7 for the detailed instructions to complete the installation.
74
B. The print server's IP address is duplicated or is as same as another computer's IP
address on the network.
If this is the case, please consult your network administrator to obtain an unused IP address
for your print server.
C. The print server is on one segment and your Windows NT server is on the other
segment.
(This troubleshooting guide will also apply to a multiple-segmented network while installing
the print server)
For example, assuming the print server is on Segment A, NT server is on Segment B, and
there is a gateway computer between Segment A and Segment B. The network might be a
complete TCP/IP network, or a hybrid of TCP/IP and IPX/SPX network.
If this is the case, you have to adopt the following steps, depending on which platform the
gateway computer is.
a. If the gateway computer is a NT/UNIX server:
You have to do the same "arp" command to specify an entry on the NT/UNIX computer as
a gateway in order for it to forward your subsequent "ping" or/and "tftp" commands to the
print server.
b. If the gateway computer is a Novell NetWare file server:
1. Due to the presence of this NetWare file server, the IPX/SPX protocol might be used on
your network. Therefore, we strongly suggest you run the PSAdmin from any client
computer and select "Manual Setup" to specify the print server's IP address (For more
detailed information about Manual Setup, please refer to Chapter 3).
2. If the solution described above is not applicable, you have to follow the instructions
below to set up the print server's IP address.
For the purpose of explanation, we assume the NT server is on Segment A and its IP address
is 192.72.214.66 (subnet mask: 255.255.255.224), the print server is going to be installed on
Segment B, with IP address, for example, 192.72.214.100.
1. Find an unused IP address on Segment A for temporary use in the following steps, for
example, 192.72.214.68.
2. Connect your print server to Segment A as a networked node.
3. On your NT server, type, for example, "arp -s 192.72.214.68 00-40-01-3F-02-AB". Please
note, in this arp command you have to type 192.72.214.68 on purpose. Do not type this IP
address as 192.72.214.100.
4. Type "tftp 192.722.214.68 get config.txt". The configuration file will then be retrieved and
transferred to your NT server.
75
5. Type "edit config.txt" to modify this configuration file.
6. In your editor, modify "BoxIPAddress" field from "0.0.0.0" to "192.72.214.100". Leave
other options as default and do not change their values. When done, save this new
file and quit from your editor. Please note, in this step you must specify an IP address
which is valid on Segment B, such as 192.72.214.100 in this example, rather than
192.72.214.68.
7. Type, for example, "tftp 192.72.214.68 put config.txt" to save this new configuration back
to print server.
8. Move the print server back to the Segment B.
9. Done!
76
