INTRODUCTION
The Network Interface Card (NIC) supports the following
platforms and protocols:
•
INTRODUCTION
The purpose of this book is to help the network administrator
integrate Xpress T9412i/T9412n monochrome laser printers
into a local Area Network (LAN). It describes setting up the
printer in LANs using NetWare, Windows NT, or Windows
2000 network operating systems. It also explains Internet
Printing Protocol (IPP), Windows peer-to-peer printing, and
shared printing.
As described in the Xpress T9412i User’s Guide, this printer
comes with it’s own built-in web server and home page. You
can perform network administration tasks directly from the
printer’s home page. See “Xpress T9412i/T9412n Web Pages”
on page 41 for more information on this topic.
Some simplified instructions are included in this guide, but
ideally we assume that you have the following:
•
•
•
•
A working knowledge of your network utilities and
system.
The correct network software.
A completely operational system.
Access to the supervisor account as a network
administrator, or access to an account that has supervisor
privileges.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Microsoft® Windows® 95/98, Windows NT 4.0,
Windows® Me, and Windows® 2000
NetWare® versions 3.x, 4.x, and 5.x
Peer-to-peer printing for Windows 95/98/Me
Peer-to-peer printing for Windows NT 4.0

REQUIREMENTS
In order to install the NIC, you will need a Category 5
twisted pair cable with RJ-45 connectors for 10/100Base-TX
Ethernet®.
note: The NIC automatically detects whether you have a
10 Mbps or 100 Mbps Ethernet connection. For better
performance, Tally recommends you use shielded cable
and connectors with 100 Mbps Ethernet hubs.
Introduction

SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
Printer Drivers
There are three types of software that must be considered in
network printing. First, the network operating system
software that must be configured to recognize the printer.
Second, the print clients’ operating system software. And
third, the printer driver software that must be loaded on each
client computer.
Printer drivers enable the print client to communicate to the
printer from a user’s application. The Xpress T9412i/T9412n
printers provide the following printer drivers:
Network Operating Systems
Networks use an operating system for managing the
network. Depending on the method used to connect your
printer to the network, a network operating system (NOS)
may have to be configured to recognize the printer and make
it available to print clients.
The Xpress T9412i/T9412n supports networks using 10BaseTX or 100Base-TX physical connections and one of the
following Network Operating Systems:
•
•
•
•
Microsoft Windows
Novell NetWare
Apple EtherTalk and LocalTalk
UNIX
Print Client Operating Systems
A print client can be defined as a computer that submits print
jobs through its physical LAN connection and installed
operating system. Listed below are the print client types
supported by the Xpress T9412i/T9412n printers:
•
•
•

Any one of these drivers can be used to enable an application
to communicate with the printer.
Macintosh computers running Mac OS 7.1.2 or higher, can
use the LaserWriter 8 printer driver. Supplied with your
printer is a Tally Xpress T9412 PPD that helps the LaserWriter
8 driver communicate with the printer.
UNIX computers using LPR that can send plain text or
PostScript data to the printer.
Install the drivers from the Xpress T9412 Series Solutions CD
or find them on the Internet under www.tally.com.
Connect the Printer to Your Network
If you have the Xpress T9412n printer, a network card is
already installed. If you have the Xpress T9412i printer you
will need to install the NIC yourself. See the directions in
Chapter 2 on page 5 of this User’s Guide.
Install Network Printer Manager (NPM)
Install Network Printer Manager (NPM) software on your
computer from the Xpress T9412 Series Solutions CD.
note: Please be advised that the NPM utility, used to
manage printers on a network, does not support
upgrading the flash firmware across different networks. In
order to circumvent this limitation, you need to install the
NPM utility on a PC located on the same network as the
printer you are interested in upgrading.
Assign the IP Address
Use the Network Printer Manager (NPM) to assign the IP
address to the NIC, see “Assigning the IP Address with
NPM” on page 11.
Configure the Network and Workstations
After assigning the IP Address to the NIC, you will be ready
to set up the computers to print to the new printer. Select the
computer’s operating system from the list below and
continue to configure the network and workstations.
From Windows 95/98/Me
• For NetWare networks, see page 21 of Chapter 5 for
configuration information.
• To print directly to the network without a designated
server, you can use the peer-to-peer software provided
on the Xpress CD. See page 15 of Chapter 4.
• To set up shared printing without a designated server,
see page 16 of Chapter 4.
From Windows NT
• If you have a NetWare network, see page 25 of Chapter 5
for configuration information.
• If you have a Windows NT 4.0 server network, see page
16 of Chapter 4.
From Windows 2000
• If you have a NetWare network, see page 26 of Chapter 5
for configuration information.
• If you have a Windows NT 4.0 server network, see page
16 of Chapter 4.
From Mac OS
See page 29 of Chapter 6 for information on setting up and
printing from Macintosh computers over EtherTalk.
From UNIX
See page 31 of Chapter 7 for installing the printer on a Unix
system Solaris 2.x and SCO.
note: Please be advised that if you use Microsoft’s IPX/
SPX-compatible protocol, some of the Network Printer
Manager’s options that allow you to add, remove, modify,
and create print queues will not be available. Therefore we
strongly recommend that you use Novell’s NetWare IPX/
SPX protocol (32-bit client) in order to avoid this
incompatibility.

INTRODUCTION
NETWORK SETUP TASKS
NETWORK FEATURES
NETWORK INTERFACE
Network Printer Manager
There are two characteristics that define an interface to your
network—the physical and the electrical.
The Xpress T9412i/T9412n Network Printer Manager (NPM)
is a tool for remotely managing the printer, its NIC, and to
some extent, the network operating system.
note: Please be advised that the NPM utility used to
manage printers on a network does not support
upgrading the flash firmware across different networks. In
order to circumvent this limitation, you need to install the
NPM utility on a PC located on the same network as the
printer you are interested in upgrading.
Xpress T9412i/T9412n Web Pages
The Xpress T9412i/T9412n settings can also be configured
with the aid of a web browser such as Internet Explorer or
Netscape Navigator. The printer web pages allow the LAN
administrator to configure most printer settings. For greater
network configuration capability, use the NPM utility.
NIC Flash Memory
The printer configuration settings are stored in a FLASH
ROM IC located on the NIC. In order to upgrade the NIC
firmware, the NPM utility must be installed in a PC running
Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000.

Resetting the NIC
When the NIC is installed in the printer there will be two
green status lights (LEDs) visible on the Interface Panel.
Below is an explanation on what those lights indicate.
Instructions are also given on how to reset the NIC to its
factory default settings.
There may be times when you will want to reset the NIC.
This should be done when the printer is moved to a different
network or when you are setting up peer-to-peer printing.
NIC Status Lights
The light patterns for the NIC operation are as follows:
Upper Green light is on solid: This shows normal
operation. The printer’s LAN connection is established.
If the Upper Green Light is not lit, the LAN connection is
not established.
Lower Green light blinks continuously: This shows
the printer is available and ready to process a print job.
When the NIC is reset to its factory default settings, data such
as names and IP addresses will be lost. However, the NIC’s
serial number and Network Address will not be lost. The
NIC can be reset by following the steps below.
1.
2.
Turn OFF the power to the printer.
Press the GO/Continue and Cancel Job buttons on the
printer’s Operator Panel and turn the printer back ON.

The LEDs will all blink three times and then the LEDs
will cycle once (approx. 4 seconds). This will reset the
printer to its factory default settings, but NOT the NIC to
its factory default settings. Do not release the buttons.
Continue to press the two buttons until the LEDs all
blink three times. Then, wait until the LEDs cycle once
more (approx. 20 seconds).
Release the two buttons and both the NIC and the printer
will be reset to their factory default settings.

NIC IP CONFIGURATION
INTRODUCTION
To take advantage of the many Xpress network features, you
must assign an IP address to the printer’s network interface
card (NIC). This chapter explains several ways of assigning
an IP address.
Obtaining the Printer’s IP Address
Determine the printer’s IP Address or obtain it from your
network administrator. This step is not necessary for Mac OS
users or if you have a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
(DHCP) server. See page 14 for more information about
DHCP.
ASSIGNING
NPM
THE
IP ADDRESS
WITH
The Network Printer Manager (NPM) is an administrative
tool that can also be used for assigning the IP Address and
configuring the NIC.
The NPM must be installed on a computer running
Windows 95, 98, Me, 2000, or NT 4.0 that is connected to the
network. For more information about NPM, see page 35 of
Chapter 8.
1.
Click the Windows Start button, select Programs, then
Tally Network Printer Manager folder, and click
Network Printer Manager icon to start the Tally
Network Printer Manager.
Selecting an IP Address Assignment Method
If a DHCP server is not present, use the Network Printer
Manager (NPM) to assign an IP address to your printer’s
NIC. There are several ways to do this:
•
•
•
•
Static (manual configuration)
DHCP
BOOTP
RARP
Once NPM starts, it will begin searching the network for
the printer. Every Xpress T9412i(n) printer found will be
listed in the NPM main window.

THE
IP ADDRESS
WITH
At power-up, the T9412i(n) NIC broadcasts a DHCP request
for an IP address. If a DHCP server is present, the request
will be processed, and an IP address will be returned to the
NIC. Upon receipt of the IP address, the NIC resets, and
prints a Network Settings Sheet. This shows the new IP
address (and subnet mask, and default gateway, if any).
note: Under factory default settings, once an IP address
has been assigned to it, the NIC will no longer broadcast
DHCP requests. If you uncheck the IP Address in NVRAM,
in the Network Administration Page, the printer will
broadcast a DHCP request each time you turn on the
printer.
The DHCP server may grant a temporary IP address, called a
temporary lease or temporary reservation, which expires
later, or may grant a permanent or unlimited lease or
reservation which does not expire.
Devices that are granted a temporary lease will be notified
before the lease expires and asked if they would like to
extend the lease. The NIC will continue extending its lease
indefinitely (unless prohibited by your DHCP server
configuration), and thus maintain a consistent IP address.
note: If the NIC is not turned on or is not connected to
the network when the DHCP server is sending requests to
extend the lease, the lease will not be extended. The DHCP
server will cancel the lease and may assign the IP address
to another device. Therefore, it is highly recommended to
explicitly specify the NIC lease as permanent or unlimited
in your DHCP server configuration.
Verify that your printer was assigned an IP Address through
the Network Configuration Sheet, then start setting up your
workstation to use the T9412i(n) printer.

WINDOWS PEER-TO-PEER
Peer-to-peer printing allows Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000
computers to print directly to a networked printer without an
intervening file server. Below are the main features of peerto-peer printing.
• Runs on Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000 and
workstations or servers “out of the box.”
• Runs on networks with or without a NetWare file server.
• Implements peer to peer direct printing between
Windows computers and networked printers.
• You can configure network printers the same way you
configure printers directly attached to a computer.

Adding the Printer to Solaris 2.x
UNIX NETWORKS
1.
INTRODUCTION
This section provides basic instructions for installing the
printer on your UNIX system in Solaris 2.x and SCO. For
additional information, refer to your operating system
administration manuals.
CONFIGURING
THE
Log into your system as root. Add the printer’s IP address
you already assigned into the /etc/hosts file. Using
lpsystem follow these steps to open a terminal and enter
the printer’s IP address from the command line.
IP ADDRESS
The T9412i(n) must be assigned an IP address and routing
parameters. We suggest you use the instructions in
“Assigning the IP Address with NPM” on page 11.
SETTING UP YOUR PRINTING MODE
Use these instructions to set up the printer for SCO Open
Server Enterprise 5.0 and Solaris 2.x.
Installing the Printer in Your System
lpd is an implementation of the standard UNIX line printer
daemon which lets you print across a TCP/IP network,
without the need to install software on your workstation, and
with all filtering and banners done by the T9412i(n). Remote
printing uses the same commands (lpr, lpq, lpc) as local
printing.
The process begins when the LPR call finds a printer on a
remote system by looking at the remote (rm) entry in the
/etc/printcap file for that printer. LPR handles a print
job for a remote printer by opening a connection with the lpd
process on the remote system and sending the data file
(followed by the control file containing control information
for this job) to the remote system. The printer-based lpd then
filters the data and prints the job according to information
contained in the control file and its own printcap file.
The following sections give specific lpd setup instructions for
various systems. You must log in as root in order to execute
the commands.
2.
lpsystem -t bsd <IP address of printer>
[ENTER]
Enter the T9412i(n) print server host name from the
/etc/hosts file. Your system may want its IP address
instead of the remote host name.
lpadmin -p <printername> -s <remote host
name or IP address> [ENTER]
note: There is no space after the remote host name.
3. Enable<printername> [ENTER]
4. Accept<printername> [ENTER]
Then, make sure that the printer content type is set to PS by
typing lpstat -p -l to display the current printer
settings. If it is not set to PS, type the following on the
command line to change the printer settings.
5.
6.
lpadmin -p <printername> -I postscript
[ENTER]
lpadmin -p <printername> -T PS [ENTER]
note: Steps 5 and 6 apply only if the printer has a PS
SIMM.
7.
Print a test page:
lpr -p <printername> /etc/hosts [ENTER]
To test that the printer was installed into the system, send a
print job using any application in your operating system.
Make sure that the printer you choose is the Tally T9412i(n)
that you installed earlier.
note: If the printer does not have a PS SIMM, you may
experience “stepping text”.
To Fix “Stepping Text” in NPM
1. Select Operator Panel from the Settings drop-down list.
2. Select the Printer Menu tab.
3. Select Yes next to Auto Carriage Return.
4. Print a test page.

TALLY IPP CLIENT
Introduction
Tally Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) is a client-server type
protocol that allows the server side to be either a separate
print server or a printer with embedded networking
capabilities.
The Tally IPP Client is a program that transmits data to the
Tally IPP Server using Tally IPP.
The Tally IPP Server is installed in Xpress printers with the
Network Interface Card (NIC).
The user is able to print by transmitting data to be printed
through the Tally IPP Client program to the Tally IPP Server
on the host computer supporting TCP/IP.
Tally IPP is an application level protocol that can be used for
distributed printing using Internet tools and technologies.
IPP supports network printing over the Internet as well as
LAN environments. Since print data can be transmitted to
distant printers, Tally IPP provides inquiry about the status
of printers and print jobs.
IPP allows the user to do the following:
•
•

Confirm that the network protocol you configured
appears on the page. If not, it should be reconfigured
correctly for the network printer.
Network Users Checklist
Determine if other network users can print. If they cannot
and they are all on the same network operating system, the
problem is most likely in the network configuration.
Recent System Changes Checklist
•
Verify that any hardware changes (installations,
modifications, removals), to the printer or network, were
done correctly.

•
•
52
Appendix A, Troubleshooting
Be sure that your cable is a Category 5 twisted pair cable
with RJ-45 connectors for 10/100Base-T ethernet.
Check that the network connector is plugged into the RJ45 connector on the NIC.
Try another cable to make sure you do not have a bad
cable.
If you are using a 10/100Base-T concentrator hub that
does not support the link signal, use Manual Ethernet
Port selection instead of the factory default, Automatic
Ethernet Port selection.
FOR
NETWARE
Use the Network Administration Page options to
troubleshoot in an IPX environment. The checklists in this
section show what to look for.
•
NetWare Checklist
•
•
•
•
Is the NIC name entered correctly? The factory-default
name is TAL/<Print Server Name>
The serial number is on the back of the NIC and also
shown at the top of the Network Configuration Sheet.
Did you assign print queues to the printer? It is
recommended you assign each print queue to a specific
printer NIC. If print queues are assigned to other
network printers, the print jobs may be going to another
network printer.
Did you assign the printer to the type Remote Other /
Unknown?
If the above settings are correct, the connection between the
printer and network may have been broken. Turn the printer
off and, using PCONSOLE, wait for the status message Not
Connected. Turn the printer on and the status should change
to Waiting for Job.
File Server Checklist
•
•
•
Is there enough disk space on the file server and is it
running?
Is the correct file server associated with the printer? Use
PCONSOLE to check.
Did you have the proper rights to configure the printer?
Computer Checklist
•
•
•
•
Is the network loaded onto the computer? See your
NetWare documentation.
Is the application set up to print to the printer? Are you
using the correct driver?
Is the workstation connected to the correct print queue?
Print a file and verify that the file goes to the queue.
Are the print queues assigned to the NIC-connected
printer also assigned to another network printer? If they
are, the print jobs may be going to that printer.
Is AUTO ENDCAP enabled? AUTO ENDCAP lets you
send data to a network printer. If it is not enabled, enable
it.
Are text files printing but graphic files not? The printing
may be timing out. Use NetWare's PRINTCON or
CAPTURE to set a longer time-out period. Set the time to
at least two minutes for graphics applications.
NIC Configuration Checklist
If all your hardware connections are correct, check the
following
• The Network Configuration Sheet shows the status for
the selected network interface card. This report includes
the status of file servers and queues assigned to a printer
along with a description of any problems.
• Use NPM to finish checking the configuration, see
Chapter 8 starting on page 35 of this network guide.
NIC/File Server/Printer Checklist
Check to see if the NIC and file server are sending data to the
printer. If the NIC cannot log onto the file server, or cannot
service jobs from a file server
Use PCONSOLE to check if the print jobs are being sent to
the printer. Be sure the print job is in the print queue and
waiting to be printed.
Computer to NIC Connection Checklist
To make sure the computer is communicating with the NIC,
perform these tests.
• Print a file from the workstation and make sure the print
job gets to the print queue using PCONSOLE. If the print
job does get to the queue, the problem is not with the
workstation/NIC connection.
• Use CAPTURE to send data to the printer from a
workstation software application. See your NetWare
print server manual for information.
• Make sure another printer is not taking the print jobs
from the queues before the NIC can service the job. To do
this, disable the other printer and send another

MICROSOFT IPP
A user can install a URL-identified printer by running the
Add Printer Wizard explicitly. When a user specifies a URL to
the Add Printer Wizard, the client always connects to the
server using http.
note: This installation method must be used when
installing printers that contain their own network cards
and are therefore not connected to a server.
INTRODUCTION
The Microsoft Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) allows printing
over the Internet. Windows 2000 includes support for this
protocol. There are several steps involved in implementing
the Microsoft IPP Client program:
•
•
•
•
Setting up the Xpress T9412i(n) printer
Setting up the Server IIS
Setting up a Win 2000 Client or
Setting up a Win 95/98/Me Client
The installation process is not customizable beyond
specifying the contents of the printer .inf file, which is the
same .inf file used to install the printer on the print server.
You need to install the printer driver for Windows 2000 and
connect the printer. The printer can be connected to LPT1
connected on a network.

Before a user can send a job to a print queue that is visible by
means of print Web pages, driver files must be sent from the
print server and installed on the user’s system. This
installation operation occurs when a user views a print
queue’s Web page and then selects its installation page. (The
installation page cannot be replaced with a customized
page.)

In the Add Web Printer Connection window, click Yes.
In the Digital Signature Not Found window, click Yes.
In the Enter Network Password window, fill in User
Name and Password, and click OK. Installation is done.
Setting Up a Windows 98/Me Client
The set up is the same for a Windows 98 or Windows Me
Client as the set up for Windows 2000. In case you do not see
the link Connect, you must install additional software from
Microsoft to enable IPP support.
For a Windows 2000 print server to support Web pages, it
must be running either Windows 2000 Server software with
the Microsoft Internet Information Server (ISS), or Windows
2000 Professional software with the Microsoft Peer Web
Server.
To view a print server page, specify the following URL
format:
HTTP://ServerName/Printers
where ServerName is the server name (either a DNS name
for Internet connections, or a WINS name for Intranet
connections.) The URL points to an HTML file that generates
the print server’s page.
The server page provides a link to a print queue page for
each print queue available on the server. Shared print queues
can be accessed by all users. You can also reference the print
queue pages for shared printers by specifying a URL with the
following format:
HTTP://ServerName/ShareName
where ShareName is the print queue’s share name, as
specified in its property sheet.
When you select a printer’s link within the print folder,
Microsoft Internet Explorer is automatically started and the
print queue pages’s URL is accessed. Alternately, as already
described, you can view a print server page or a print queue
page by specifying the page’s URL to any HTML browser.

UPGRADING THE NIC
FIRMWARE
INTRODUCTION
Located on the network interface card (NIC) are flash
memory devices for storing the NIC firmware. The firmware
contains instructions that are used by the NIC for
communicating with a network. If for some reason the
firmware must be upgraded, it can be easily done.
UPGRADE PROCEDURE
After the following procedure is completed, the printer will
automatically reset itself so it can begin receiving print jobs.
Note: Some of the following steps may appear to be
slow because of network traffic.
1.
For information about NIC firmware upgrades, such as
whether you need one or not, and how to receive them, visit
Tally’s Web site at www.tally.com
PREREQUISITES
Before the NIC firmware can be upgraded, the following
prerequisites must be met.
•
•
•
•

SAFETY INFORMATION
Inspect your work environment for the operating conditions
listed above if you believe ozone emissions are a problem in
your area. Some people may be ultra-sensitive to ozone odor.
If these situations are encountered, it is advisable to position
the printer away from the sensitive user.
OZONE EMISSION
Laser Safety
The corona assemblies found in laser printers and
photocopiers generate ozone gas (O3) as a by-product of the
electrophotographic process. Ozone is only generated while
the printer is printing while the coronas are energized.
UL Standards for Ozone
The only existing standard for ozone emissions has been
established by Underwriters Laboratory (UL). All Tally
Xpress family printers meet this standard when shipped
from the factory to our customers.
Employer Responsibilities
Because ozone can be an irritant, various regulatory agencies
have established limits to the amount of ozone to which
employees may be exposed. The employer is responsible for
providing a safe work environment that meets the agencies’
standards.
Recommendations for Minimizing Ozone
Exposure
Almost all ozone concerns arise from abnormal site or
operating conditions. The following conditions may generate
an ozone complaint:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Installation of multiple laser printers in a confined area
Extremely low relative humidity
Poor room ventilation
The exhaust port of the printer is directed towards the
face of personnel
Read the installation instructions carefully before you
plug in your printer, and follow all warnings
The existing ozone filter is in poor condition
Long continuous printing is combined with any of the
above
This printer is certified as a Class 1 laser product under the
U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)
Radiation Performance Standard according to the Radiation
Control for Health and Safety Act of 1968. This means that
the printer does not produce hazardous laser radiation.
Since radiation emitted inside the printer is completely
confined within protective housings and external covers, the
laser beam cannot escape from the machine during any phase
of user operation.
CDRH Regulations
The Center of Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) of
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration implemented
regulations for laser products on August 2, 1976. These
regulations apply to laser products manufactured after
August 1, 1976. Compliance is mandatory for products
marketed in the United States. The printer’s front panel
indicates compliance with the CDRH regulations and must
be attached to laser products marketed in the United States.
Caution! Use of controls, adjustments, or
performance of procedures other that those specified in
this user’s guide may result in hazardous radiation
exposure.
