NETWORK CONFIGURATION
INTRODUCTION
Your machine incorporates a fast 100BASE-TX/10BASE-T network interface. This guide
explains the functionality of the built in network interface. Access for interconnection and
producing self-diagnostic test and configuration printouts is provided via an interface panel
at the rear of the machine.
This network interface supports IEEE802.2, IEEE802.3, Ethernet-II and SNAP, and can
detect those frame types automatically.
Also, the interface supports major protocols such as TCP/IP, IPX/SPX (NetWare) and
NetBEUI.
This guide details the network interface specification and several software utilities.
You should set the emulation in the Print Setup menu to Auto or PS before printing the selfdiagnostic test and settings.
NOTE
Not all utilities, features or protocols are supported by every operating
system. Please check with your User’s Guide and support website for latest
information.

USING TELNET
CAUTION!
Please ensure a valid IP address for your network environment is
used. Use of an incorrect IP address can cause serious problems on
your network.
EXAMPLE TELNET CONFIGURATION
TELNET requires the print server to have a valid IP address configured. If the NIC already
has an IP address configured, skip steps 1 to 3 below.
NOTE
The method of configuring commands may differ between workstations. Refer
to the workstation’s manual.
1.
Use the PING command to confirm the connection with the network card.
Example
For IP address 172.168.20.127:
ping 172.168.20.127
If there is no reply, there is a problem with the configuration of the IP address (the
IP address has been already set manually or by the DHCP/RARP server), or with the
network. Reset the network interface card settings to the default and try to set a
temporary IP address. If you still have the problem after resetting the network
interface card, consult the network manager.
2.
Login to the network card using TELNET.
Example
For IP address 172.168.20.127
telnet 172.168.20.127
You should see a sequence similar to the following example:
Trying 172.168.20.127

MICROSOFT WINDOWS
OVERVIEW
This chapter provides guidelines on how to print over the network from various Microsoft
Windows platforms. There are numerous ways of printing from Windows and the exact setup will vary depending upon your environment. There are also numerous versions of
Windows, which can be configured as either a client, server or both.
Although there are many variants of Windows, the principles of network printing are the
same. Microsoft provides on-line help with all of their operating systems and this is a good
reference point for the exact details of each configuration option within Windows.
The network printer supports TCP/IP protocols that can be used in conjunction with the
Windows operating system,
NOTE
Not all utilities, features or protocols are supported by every operating
system. Please check with your User’s Guide and support website for latest
information.
INSTALLING A NETWORK PRINTER
There are two ways to set up a Network Printer:
>
Install automatically, using the Oki Driver Installer
>
Install it yourself using the Add Printer Wizard
USING THE OKI DRIVER INSTALLER
The Oki Driver Installer program searches for compatible printers on the Network, then
installs and configures the printer drivers with the correct port settings automatically.
Using the Oki Driver Installer program, you can install to the following connected printer
types:
1.
Locally connected printers
> USB port
> Parallel port
2.
Networked printers
> Directly connected (peer-to-peer) printers via TCP/IP. The Microsoft standard
TCP/IP is installed and configured to use Port 9100 with the printer’s IP address.
> Printers not directly connected, but shared via a PC (Client Server)
Why use the Driver Installer?
>
Automatically discovers printers on the Network (TCP/IP)
>
Installs driver and correctly assigns the appropriate port and IP address
>
Allows easy configuration and sharing of the printer with other Network users
>
Automatically configures the printer driver with the appropriate hardware device
options such as hard disc drive, duplex unit, etc. (via the Oki Network Extension
software)

About the different methods
Windows Rally
Windows Rally is an automated “Plug-n-Play” type utility that allows users to discover and
configure network devices effortlessly.
Windows standard TCP/IP port
The standard TCP/IP port simplifies connecting to remote printers using the TCP/IP
protocol. A computer that acts as a print server must run the TCP/IP protocol in order to
print.
Can be configured to use either LPR or RAW (e.g. Port9100).
OkiLPR
Used to connect your printer over TCP/IP using an LPR port.
OkiLPR also includes useful tools enabling you to download PS and PRN files directly to your
printer and automatically redirect jobs to other printers on the network.
IPP
The IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) defines a standard protocol for printing as well as
managing print jobs, media, resolution, etc.
NetBEUI
NetBEUI (NetBios Extended User Interface) is a protocol that was designed for use in small
workgroups or LANs. Within Windows NetBEUI is used for file and printer sharing between
computers. It provides a simple method of printing, but it does have limitations, and is not
as robust as TCP/IP or IPX. Typically it is employed in small business or home networks.
Microsoft windows > 39
CONFIGURING THE NETWORK PRINTER IP ADDRESS
Use the Standard Set-up Utility to configure the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Gateway.
NOTE
It will not be necessary for printers connected to a network using DCHP to use
this setup method.
Some steps may not display depending on the network protocols installed.
1.
Connect the machine to the network and turn on.
2.
Insert the DVD-ROM into the DVD-ROM drive. The Setup Utility starts automatically.
If it does not start, double-click \setup.exe (in the root directory) on the DVDROM.
3.
Select the appropriate language.
4.
Select your printer model.
5.
If you agree to the Software Licence Agreement, click I Agree.
6.
Select Device Configuration.
6
7
7.
Select Run Network Card Setup.
8.
Select your language.
9.
Select Oki Device Quick Setup and follow the on-screen instructions.
10.
Select the appropriate network card, using the Ethernet address to identify it, and
click Next.
Microsoft windows > 40
The Ethernet address of the printer can be found on the self-diagnostic printout,
which can be printed by pressing the push-button on the network card panel for more
than three seconds and then releasing it. See “Self-diagnostic test” on page 7.
Using TCP/IP protocol
When using lpr in UNIX and other TCP/IP environments, please select Yes. To use in
a TCP/IP environment, an IP address should be assigned to the Ethernet card.
If Yes has been selected and TCP/IP is the only working protocol and the IP address
has not already been assigned, you can either obtain an IP address automatically or
assign an IP address.
When Obtain an IP address automatically is selected, the device IP address will
be automatically assigned by the DHCP server. In an environment without a DHCP
server, please assign the IP address manually.
If you are manually assigning an IP address, you need to enter:
> An IP address
> Subnet mask
> Gateway address.
11.
Click Next.
Using Bonjour protocol
Bonjour is the preferred protocol for printing data from the Macintosh environment.
Using NetBEUI protocol
Using NetBEUI makes it easy to manage your Oki product and print within the
network environment of Windows.
12.
When the settings are correct, click Execute. The new settings are transmitted to
the network card but it still operates with pre-transmission settings.
13.
Click Finish to validate the new settings.
14.
Switch the printer off for 15 seconds and on again.
Now that both Windows and the printer have been configured to use TCP/IP, the next step
is to configure Windows to print to the network printer.
UNINSTALLING THE NETWORK CARD SETUP UTILITY
To uninstall the Network Card Setup utility:
1.
Select Start > Control Panel.
2.
Select Add or Remove Programs.
3.
Select AdminManager (Oki Setup Utility) and click Remove. This removes the
Network Card Setup utility from your computer.
4.

OVERVIEW
The printer supports many protocols such as LPD, FTP, TELNET, SNMP and IPP, and works
within the UNIX environment.
To use the network card within the UNIX environment, the following steps are required:
CONFIGURATION
NETWORK INTERFACE CARD SETTING
The first step in installing the network card under UNIX is to set up the IP address, Subnet
Mask and Gateway. This section explains one way to set them up from a UNIX workstation.
>
The network addresses used in this manual are shown as examples only. Network
addresses used in your installation must be generated for your own network.
>
Log in as root to change the configuration of the printer.
>
If an incorrect IP address, Subnet Mask or Gateway is entered, the network may go
down or other damage may occur. Check the address with your network manager.
The following explanation uses Sun Solaris 2.8 (Solaris 8) as an example. The actual
commands may differ between versions of UNIX, so refer to the workstation manuals for
more information.
NOTE
If you do not have superuser rights, the network manger should conduct the
configuration.
1.
Log in as root to the workstation.
2.
If the printer does not have an IP address already assigned, use the arp command to
set a temporary IP address.
Example: for IP address 192.68.20.127 and network card address
00:80:87:01:00:D2
# arp –s 192.168.20.127 00:80:87:01:00:D2
3.
Use the ping command to confirm the connection with the network interface card.
Example: for IP address 192.168.20.127
# ping 192.168.20.127
If there is no reply, there is a problem with the configuration of the IP address (the
IP address has already been set manually or dynamically), or with the network. Reset
the network interface card settings to default and try to set a temporary IP address.
If you still have the problem after resetting the network interface card, consult the
network manager.
UNIX > 52
4.
Login to the network interface card using TELNET.
Example: Logging in to IP address 192.168.20.127
#telnet 192.168.20.127
Trying 192.168.20.127

6.
Logout from the network interface card. Turn the printer off for about 15 seconds
and on again to validate the settings.
LPD Printing
Line Printer Daemon (LPD) is the most common protocol for printing with TCP/IP to
a network printer. Refer to the workstation’s manual for details of lpr and lp
commands. The following explanation in this section uses the printing of print file
test.prn with printer name myprn_lp as an example.
UNIX > 53
Logical printers
The printer’s network interface includes three logical printers.
>
lp must be used for printing a file created using the printer driver.
>
sjis must be used for printing a text file of Shift JIS Kanji code.
>
euc must be used for the printing a text file of the EUC Kanji code.
>
LOGICAL PRINTER
PRINTER FUNCTION
lp
For direct output
sjis
For Shift JIS Kanji converted output
euc
For EUC Kanji converted output
sjis and euc function only as PostScript printers.
BSD-based UNIX
Print using the lpr command.
# lpr myprn_lp test.prn
If the lprm command is used, the print job is cancelled.
Example: To delete a print job (Job ID 123) on the myprn_lp
# lprm myprn_lp 123
Verify the printer status using the lpq command.
>
The result of lpq may not be displayed correctly depending on UNIX operating
system specification.
# lpq myprn_lp
System V-based UNIX
Print using the lp command.
# lp –d myprn_lp_lp test.prn
Delete a print job using cancel command.
Example: To delete a print job (Job ID 456) in the myprn_lp
# cancel myprn_lp
-456
Verify the printer status using the lpstat command.
# lpstat
The result of lpstat may not be displayed correctly depending on UNIX operating
system specification (e.g. Solaris 2.x).
FTP printing
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is used for transferring a file with TCP/IP. If the print data
is sent to a logical printer via FTP, it is printed.
Refer to the workstation’s manual for details of the ftp command. The following
explanation uses print file test.prn with printer name myprn_lp as an example.
UNIX > 54
LOGICAL DIRECTORIES
The printer’s network interface includes three logical directories.
>
lp must be used for printing a file created using the printer driver.
>
sjis must be used for printing a text file of Shift JIS Kanji code.
>
euc must be used for the printing a text file of the EUC Kanji code
LOGICAL DIRECTORY
PRINTER FUNCTION
lp
For direct output
sjis
For Shift JIS Kanji converted output
euc
For EUC Kanji converted output
>
jis and euc function only as PostScript printers.
>
You can not send data to the root directory.
1.
Log in to the network interface card.
When printing with ftp, use any values for name and password. However, if the user
name is root, the password set under TELNET or the utility is required. See the
appropriate section for details.
Example: Logging in with host name myprn (or IP address 192.168.20.127).
# ftp myprn (or ftp 192.168.20.127)
Connected to myprn
220 EthernetBoard 8100e Ver 01.50 FTP Server
Name (myprn:<none>) : root
331 Password required.
Password:<CR>
230 User Logged in
ftp>
The network card logical directory structure is hierarchical. Move to the logical
directory; it is not possible to output print data to the root directory.
2.
Move to the preferable logical directory using the cd command.
Example: moving to the lp directory and confirming the current directory.
ftp> cd /lp
250 Command OK.
ftp> pwd
257 ”/lp” is current directory
ftp>
3.
Configure the transfer mode.
There are two types of transfer mode: BINARY mode, in which the file content is
output as it is and ASCII mode, which converts the LF code to the CR+LF code. If a
binary file converted by the printer driver is transferred, the transfer mode has to be
BINARY mode.
Example: Changing transfer mode to binary mode and verifying the current mode:
ftp> type binary
200 Type set to I.
ftp> type
Using binary mode to transfer files.
ftp>
UNIX > 55
4.
Transfer the print data to the network card using the put command. Two methods of
file transfer using the put command are available.
Example: Transferring print data test.prn
ftp> put test.prn
Example: Transferring print data specified by absolute path/users/test/test.prn
ftp> put /users/test/test.prn
5.
Logout from the network card using the quit command.
ftp> quit
Three states can be verified using the quote command stat: the IP address, login user
name and transfer mode. In addition, printer status can be verified by specifying the
directory after the stat (lp, sjis, euc).
Example: Displaying network card status
ftp> quote stat
211-FTP server status:
Connected to: 192.168.20.10.000.00
User logged in: root
Transfer type: BINARY
Data connection: Closed.
211 End of status.
ftp>
Example: Displaying the network card status (directory name: lp)
ftp> quote stat /lp
211-FTP directory status:
Ready
211 End of status
