Introduction
This chapter covers configuration for the EtherTalk, Novell Print
Server, and Line Printer protocols on the printer’s Ethernet interface
using printer front panel menus, XANTÉ Command Center, and
specific network software.
EtherTalk Network Configuration
Ethernet is a multiple protocol medium that allows you to run
several network protocols concurrently. An EtherTalk network
allows you to run the AppleTalk protocol on a physical base which
can be three to five times faster than a LocalTalk network.
Note: Typically, only Macintosh computers are installed on an
EtherTalk network. If you have PCs operating in an
EtherTalk network, see the documentation that came with
your PC EtherTalk interface.
The following steps are required to set up your XANTÉ printer on an
EtherTalk network. Chapter 2 covers step 1, chapter 6 covers step 2,
and this section covers steps 3 and 4.
1.
Connect your XANTÉ printer to the network through the
Ethernet port.
2.
Enable the printer’s EtherTalk interface, if necessary.
3.
Select the Apple menu: Control Panel: AppleTalk. Then,
select Ethernet in the Connect via drop-down menu.
4.
Change the EtherTalk Zone name, if necessary.
Select the EtherTalk Phase 2 Driver
Older Macintosh systems (OS 8.0 and earlier) may use the
EtherTalk Phase 2 driver. Your printer supports EtherTalk Phase 2
on an EtherTalk network.
_______________________________________
Ethernet Setup 5-3
•
Select the Phase 2 driver through the Network Control Panel under
Apple menu: Control Panels on a Macintosh with an older operating
system (System 6.X and earlier).
•
Select Ethernet from the drop down menu in the AppleTalk
Control Panel under Apple menu: Control Panels on a Macintosh
with an operating system that supports Open Transport (System
7.5 and later and some versions between 6.X and 7.5).
Change the EtherTalk Zone Name
On an EtherTalk network with more than one zone, the network
router assigns your printer a default zone. Check with your System
Administrator to determine the correct zone for your printer; then, if
necessary, change the printer’s zone name using XANTÉ Command
Center.
Using XANTÉ Command Center
1.
Open XANTÉ Command Center by double-clicking its icon.
2.
Choose Networking: AppleTalk: EtherTalk Zone Name. The
following window appears (fig. 5.1).
Fig. 5.1 EtherTalk Zone Name Window
3.
Enter the new name for the EtherTalk zone (fig. 5.1).
Note: EtherTalk zone names are limited to 32 characters, are
not case sensitive, and cannot include the = (equal), ≅
(approximately equal), * (asterisk), : (colon), or @
(at) characters.
5-4 Ethernet Setup ________________________________________
4.
Click OK. Command Center’s main menu reappears.
5.
Choose File: Quit. Command Center closes.
6.
Restart the Printer to make the new zone name effective.
Novell NetWare Configuration
Ethernet allows your printer to support EtherTalk, Novell NetWare
print server, and TCP/IP protocols concurrently.
In a Novell network, users send print jobs to a queue on a server. The
print server monitors these queues and submits the jobs to the
appropriate network printer. Your printer can service multiple print
queues on up to four file servers.
The following steps are required to set up your XANTÉ printer on a
Novell network. Chapter 2 covers step 1, this section covers steps 2
through 4, and chapters 3 (Macintosh) and 4 (PC) cover step 5.
1.
Connect your XANTÉ printer to the network through the
Ethernet port.
2.
Configure the Novell server, assigning the print server (your
printer) access to specific queues.
3.
Configure the print server emulation to direct your printer to
poll the appropriate Novell server(s).
4.
Configure the Novell print server interface on your printer.
5.
Install and configure the Adobe PostScript driver on the
individual workstations.
Configure the Novell Server
Using a Novell utility, your Novell System Administrator sets up
and names the print servers and print queues on the Novell server.
This section covers selecting Novell names and then configuring for
Novell NetWare version 3.X, 4.X, or 5.X.
_______________________________________
Ethernet Setup 5-5
Selecting the Novell Names
Certain characters are invalid for use in Novell names (fig. 5.2). The
Novell utility automatically replaces any of these characters in the
printer’s default name with an underscore (_) character and changes
all characters in the name to uppercase.
space ( )
double quote (")
asterisk (*)
plus sign (+)
less-than sign (<)
equals sign (=)
greater-than sign (>)
question mark (?)
comma (,)
forward slash (/)
colon (:)
semicolon (;)
left bracket ([)
backward slash (\)
right bracket (])
vertical bar (|)
Fig. 5.2 Invalid Characters for Novell NetWare Names
Your printer’s default Novell print server name appears on the
start-up page after the Ethernet board is installed. The default print
server name is formed by adding a _PS extension to your printer’s
PostScript name. The printer PostScript name COLOURLASER
becomes the default print server name COLOURLASER_PS.
The Novell System Administrator may assign a print server name
other than the default and may assign a password to control access to
the server.
Note: The print server name on the printer must match the
corresponding print server name on the Novell file server.
For example, use xante_ps for both of these names. It also is
recommended that you name the Novell file server queue a
similar name such as xante_q.
Both the print server name and the password must follow Novell
NetWare naming conventions (fig. 5.2). On the printer, the password
is case sensitive and write-only.
5-6 Ethernet Setup ________________________________________
Note: Do not set passwords for access to the server unless
necessary. If a password has been set for a printer, it must be
reset to a null password before you can make changes to the
printer’s Novell setup in XANTÉ Command Center. See
“Configure the Print Server Emulation” later in this chapter
to set the password.
To configure the Novell server for NetWare versions 3.X or 4.X see
the next section; for version 5.X, skip to “Configure the Novell
Server (NetWare 5.X)” later in this chapter.

_______________________________________ Ethernet Setup 5-21
Line Printer Configuration
The Ethernet interface’s Line Printer option allows you to configure
your printer to communicate using TCP/IP (Transmission Control
Protocol/Internet Protocol). TCP/IP provides a method of
communication between different types of networks. It is the
Internet’s standard for data transmission and is becoming more
widely used on all types of computers and operating systems.
The following steps are required to set up your printer to communicate
using the Line Printer interface on the Ethernet board. Chapter 2
covers Step 1, this section covers steps 2 through 4.
1.
Connect your XANTÉ printer to the network through the
Ethernet port.
2.
Configure the Line Printer interface on your printer.
3.
Set the TCP/IP address of the printer.
4.
Configure the printer setup on the network.
Configure the Line Printer Interface
Use printer front panel menus or the Macintosh version of XANTÉ
Command Center to enable your printer’s Line Printer interface, if
necessary. See chapter 6 to use front panel menus. See “Set the
TCP/IP Address” later in this section to use Command Center.
TCP/IP Addresses
Every workstation that communicates via TCP/IP is assigned a
unique 32 bit address. The convention for expressing a TCP/IP
address is to convert each octet of the address to a decimal number
separated from the other octets by a decimal point. The default
TCP/IP address for all XANTÉ printers is 192.9.200.201.
TCP/IP addresses are divided into classes based on the network’s
size (fig. 5.19). The TCP/IP address assigned depends on the class
and includes the network ID and the host (individual computer or
peripheral) ID.

Fig. 5.19 Network Address Classes
The class A address is used for large networks with more than
65,536 (216) individual workstations. The first 8 bits of the address
identify the network. The remaining 24 bits are used as host IDs. The
class A address begins with the numbers 1 through 126.
The class B address is used for networks with more than 256 (28), but
less than 65,536 (216) workstations. The first 16 bits identify the
network. The remaining 16 bits are used as host IDs. The class B
address begins with the numbers 128 through 191.
The class C address is used for networks with less than 256 (28)
workstations. The first 24 bits identify the network. The remaining 8
bits are used as host IDs. The class C address begins with the
numbers 192 through 223.
_______________________________________ Ethernet Setup 5-23
Note: The actual number of usable host IDs is smaller than the
calculated number listed above, because some addresses are
reserved, by convention, for specific uses. See the list in the
next section, “Reserved IP Addresses.”
Reserved IP Addresses
Addresses in the following table are reserved, by convention, and
should not be used as a device address.

Addresses not shown in the preceding table should be valid, as long
as they identify the host within the given network. See your System
Supervisor for the correct address to use.
Network Masks
The server uses a network mask to identify all workstations on the
same network. In the absence of subnetting, the network mask is
created by using 255 (all 1s) for the network ID address octets and
by using 0 for the host ID octets.
On a class C network, the network mask is 255.255.255.0
On a class B network, the network mask is 255.255.0.0
On a class A network, the network mask is 255.0.0.0
5-24 Ethernet Setup ________________________________________
Broadcast Addresses
The server uses a broadcast address to send information to all
workstations on the network. In the absence of subnetting, the
broadcast address is created by using the network ID address octets
and 255 (all 1s) for the host ID octets.
XANTÉ printer default addresses
On a class C network, the broadcast address is 192.9.200.255
On a class B network, the broadcast address is 192.9.255.255
On a class A network, the broadcast address is 192.255.255.255
Subnet Addresses
Subnetting is frequently used to manage the traffic between ports on
a router more efficiently. Subnetworks are created by using part of
the host ID as a subnetwork ID. The balance of the host ID identifies
the individual workstations assigned to the subnetwork.
XANTÉ Command Center (PC) allows you to set subnetting
information using the Advanced button in the TCP/IP Address dialog
box. Check with your System Supervisor for details about your
network’s subnet addresses.
Set the TCP/IP Address
Your printer’s default TCP/IP address should be changed to agree
with your network’s TCP/IP addresses. Change it using XANTÉ
Command Center or the front panel I/F:IP Address menu. Check
with your System Supervisor for the correct TCP/IP address.
See chapter 3 (Macintosh) or 4 (PC) to install and configure
Command Center on your host computer.
Note: If you perform a Level 1 factory reset, the TCP/IP address
reverts to the XANTÉ factory default address.
