UNIX System Network
55
6.1
Introduction
The print server is available for TCP/IP printing by
Unix LPD (Line Printer Daemon) protocol. The LPD
protocol originated with Unix release is based on the
BSD version of Unix and supported under most
versions of Unix.
This chapter explains how to configure the print
server for TCP/IP operation, and how to modify
configuration files on your Unix system to allow
printing to the print server. The configuration examples
in this manual follow the syntax for BSD based Unix
systems. Please refer to the related system
documentation for the correct syntax of your systems.
To configure the print server for LPD printing,
perform the procedures below:
1. Enable Print Server’s TCP/IP Support.
2. Set up Print Server’s IP address.
3. Verify Print Server’s IP Address.
4. Configure remote LPD printing on the host.
5. Print a test page.
In the next sections, we will describe these five
procedures step by step.
56
6.2
Enable Print Server’s TCP/IP Support
The default configuration of the print server is with
TCP/IP support enabled. Anyway, you can configure
the print server to enable TCP/IP support using the
configuration program.
57
6.3
Setup Print Server’s IP Address
The print server must have a unique IP address in
order to be recognized by the network.
You can set up the IP address on the various Unix
systems using any one of the following methods:
1. DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
2. BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol)
The print server will use the last three methods to
obtain its IP address automatically if its IP address is
configured as Auto (0.0.0.0).
6.3.1
DHCP
There are many Unix systems that support DHCP
protocol, and the procedures to configure the DHCP
server database are different. This manual does not
describe the DHCP server configuration on the Unix
systems. It is highly recommended that the DHCP
server should be located on the same network as the
print server.
6.3.2
BOOTP
If you have the BOOTP daemon, bootpd, running
on your UNIX system that is accessible by the print
server, you can use the BOOTP protocol to set up the
IP address of the print server. We recommend that the
BOOTP server should be located on the same subnet
as the print server. If you use Network Information
58
Services (NIS) in your system, you may need to rebuild
the NIS map with the BOOTP services before doing the
following BOOTP configuration. To rebuild the NIS
map, please refer to your system documentation.
To configure the IP address data for the BOOTP
server, you will need to log in the host of BOOTP
server as the superuser (root). Perform the following
steps to add address entries,
1. Optionally, assign a name corresponding to the
print server’s IP address. You can add this address to
the /etc/hosts file, by adding a line such as:
203.66.191.12
pserver
2. Add an entry to the host’s /etc/bootptab file,
similar to the following:
hostname:\
:ht=1:\
:ha=print_server_ethernet_address:\
:ip=print_server_ip_address:
Lines should be indented with tabs.
Where hostname is the device name of a print
server, the ht=1 tag specifies the hardware type is
Ethernet, the ha= tag specifies the Ethernet address of
a print server, which is the Node ID located on the
print server. The ha tag must be preceded by the ht
tag. The ip= tag should correspond to the IP address
you want to assign to the print server.
59
For example, a print server with the following
configuration:
Node ID: 0000B4010101 (this implies Ethernet
address is 0000B4010101),
IP address: 203.66.191.12
The entry for this print server in the /etc/bootptab
file should be:
PS010101:\
:ht=1:\
:ha=0000B4010101:\
:ip=203.66.191.12:
60
6.4
Verify Print Server’s IP Address
To verify that your print server is responding to the
newly assigned IP address using a PING command:
ping ip-address
61
6.5
Configure Remote LPD Printing on the
Host
The procedure you use to configure your Unix
host(s) to allow printing to your network remote print
server varies between different varieties of Unix. The
procedure below can be used for Unix variants that are
related to BSD Unix, such as SunOS or Linux. For
other versions of Unix, consult your system
documentation, keeping in mind that:
1. The print server should be treated as a BSD
networked print server host.
2. The host name should be the name (or IP
address) that you have assigned to the print server.
3. The printer name (or queue name) on the
remote host should be lpt1, lpt2 or lpt3, the name of
the printer port on the print server.
You will need to perform the tasks below, logged
in as the superuser (root). To configure your Unix host
for printing,
1. Optionally, assign a name corresponding to the
print server’s IP address. You can add this address to
the /etc/hosts file, by adding a line such as:
203.66.191.186
pserver
2. Create a spool directory for the printer in the
same directory where spool directories are normally
62
kept on the
/var/spool/lpd:
machine,
such
as
/var/spool
or
mkdir /var/spool/lpd/pserverd
chown daemon /var/spool/lpd/pserverd
chgrp daemon /var/spool/lpd/pserverd
chmod 775 /var/spool/lpd/pserverd
3. Add an entry to the host’s /etc/printcap file,
similar to the following:
printer-name:\
:lp=:\
:rm=203.66.191.186:\
:rp=lpt1:\
:lf=/var/spool/lpd/pserverd.log:\
:sd=/var/spool/lpd/pserverd:\
:mx#0:
Lines should be indented with tabs. More than one
printer name can be used, with variants separated by
vertical bars (name1|name2).
The rm= entry should correspond to the IP address
you have assigned to the print server. You can also
use a host name if you have assigned one in the
/etc/hosts file.
The sd= entry should correspond to the spool
directory you created in the previous step.
63
The rp= entry should correspond to the port name
of the remote printer. The values should be one of lpt1,
lpt2 or lpt3 depends on the printer port.
The print server should now be available for
printing from your Unix host.

Both “Infrastructure” and “Ad-Hoc” mode have to
go through the following procedure:
86
This print server supports WEP and WPA-PSK
security mode. If you want to use WEP encryption to
protect your wireless network, you have to select
“WEP(ASCII)” or “WEP(HEX)”. If you want to use WPAPSK, you have to select “WPA-shared key”. The
wireless security setting should be the same with other
wireless devices in the same network.
WEP Security Mode:
87
You can select “64 bit” or “128 bit” length and
“Hexadecimal” or “ASCII” format for the encryption key.
Longer key length can provide stronger security but
worth communication performance.
Enter four key values by following the rules below
and select one key as the default key.
PassPhrase – A passphrase simplifies the WEP
encryption process by automatically generating the WEP
encryption keys for the print server. This setting is only
valid when the security mode is in “WEP(HEX)”.
Key 1 to Key 4 – If the key length is 64-bit, enter 10-digit
Hex values or 5-digit ASCII values as the encryption
keys. For example: “0123456aef“ or “Guest“.
If the key length is 128-bit, enter 26-digit Hex values or
13-digit ASCII values as the encryption keys. For
example: “01234567890123456789abcdef“ or
“administrator“.
88
WPA-shared key Security Mode:
When “WPA-shared key”, also named “WPA-PSK”
requires users to select the advanced encryption
methods, i.e. TKIP and enter a set of shared key.
TKIP – TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) changes
the temporal key every 10,000 packets. This insures
much greater security than the standard WEP security.
Shared Key – Enter 8 to 63 digits of ASCII format to be
the key for the authentication within the network.
When you finish configuring the wireless security,
click “Next” to go to next step.
89
You can select to let the print server automatically
obtain IP settings with DHCP client or manually assign
the IP settings.
If you manually assign the IP settings, you have to
enter IP address, subnet mask and default gateway
address.
When you finish configuring the IP settings, click
“Next” to confirm the IP Address configuration.

the print server is connected to an active network by
Ethernet cable when starting up, the print server will
run in Ethernet mode. If the print server is not
connected to an active network by Ethernet cable
when starting up, the print server will run in wireless
LAN mode. The print server default is in “Auto” mode.
Mode is the operation mode of wireless station.
You can choose ether “Ad Hoc” or “Infrastructure”
mode. If you do not have any access point and want to
use peer-to-peer connection, you have to choose “Ad
Hoc” mode. If you have an access point as the
wireless LAN infrastructure, you have to choose
“Infrastructure” mode.

wireless LAN. Please make sure that the channel
number of all stations and access points in the same
WLAN network are the same.
8.4.2.2
Encryption
This print server supports WEP and WPA-PSK
security mode. If you want to use WEP encryption to
protect your wireless network, you have to select
“WEP”. If you want to use WPA-PSK, you have to
select “WPA-shared key”. The wireless security setting
should be the same with other wireless devices in the
same network.
WEP Security Mode:
112
Key Length – You can choose “64-bit” to use WEP with
64-bit key length encryption or choose “128-bit” to use
WEP with 128-bit key length encryption. The longer key
length can provide better security but worse transmission
throughput.
Key Format – You may select to use ASCII Characters
(alphanumeric format) or Hexadecimal digits (in the "A-F",
"a-f" and "0-9" range) to be the WEP Key.
PassPhrase – A passphrase simplifies the WEP
encryption process by automatically generating the WEP
encryption keys for the print server.
Default Key – Select one of the four keys to encrypt your
data. Only the key you select it in the “Default key” will
take effect.
113
Key 1 – Key 4 – The WEP keys are used to encrypt data
transmitted within the wireless network. Fill the text box
by following the rules below.
64-bit WEP: input 10-digit Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f"
and "0-9" range) or 5-digit ASCII character as the
encryption keys. For example: “0123456aef“ or “Guest“.
128-bit WEP: input 26-digit Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f"
and "0-9" range) or 10-digit ASCII characters as the
encryption keys. For example:
“01234567890123456789abcdef“ or “administrator“.
WPA-PSK Security Mode:
114
When “WPA-PSK”, also named “WPA-shared key”
requires users to select the advanced encryption
methods, i.e. TKIP and enter a set of shared key.
TKIP – TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) changes
the temporal key every 10,000 packets. This insures
much greater security than the standard WEP security.
WPA Pre-Shared Key – Enter 8 to 63 digits of ASCII
format to be the key for the authentication within the
network.
When you finish configuring the wireless security,
click “Save & Next” to confirm the configuration.
