TCP/IP Network Setup Procedures
Preparation for Protocol Settings
Before you specify the machine's protocol settings, it is necessary to specify the
machine IP address to enable communication between the machine and your
computers. You can use any of the following to specify the settings. Specify the
settings using the easiest method.
• The
machine's control panel (Additional Functions menu)
Device Installer (Canon software included on the Network User Software
CD-ROM)
• The ARP/PING commands
• NetSpot
IMPORTANT
• In the following operations, the machine's MAC address is necessary. To check the MAC
address from the printer control panel, follow the procedure below to make a test print.
1. Press PRINT (PRINT) ➞
(OK) on the control panel; the Online indicator goes
off.
F1
2. Press
(F1) repeatedly until <TEST MENU> appears.
F2
3. Press
(F2) repeatedly until <PRINT EN CONFIG> appears in the second line
of the display.
F4
4. Press
(F4).
• Before you perform the following operations in this section, check that the machine is ON
and connected to the network.
• If you are using NetSpot Device Installer or ARP/PING commands, the following steps
directly allocate the IP address to the machine. For this machine, in addition to direct
allocation of the IP address to the machine, you can use DHCP, BOOTP, or RARP to
specify the IP address. When the machine is started or reset, it checks whether DHCP,
BOOTP, or RARP is being used, and then allocates the IP address using the first
available setting method. Because the machine IP address is automatically allocated at
this time, it is not necessary for you to perform the following operations in this section.
However if you are reallocating the IP address, or if DHCP, BOOTP, or RARP cannot be
used, perform the following operations.
Settings from the Control Panel
IMPORTANT
Settings specified from the control panel become effective after the machine is restarted,
after the procedure.

■ Installing the Printer Driver and Specifying the Printer Destination Setting
To print from a computer, you must install a printer driver and specify a setting for the
printer destination. The printer destination setting differs depending on the print
application used for printing. Use the following information as a guide to determine the
print application you are using, and then perform the necessary operations.
• LPD
(Line Printer Daemon)
This is the print application generally used with TCP/IP. See "Printer Connection Method
(LPD/Raw)," on p. 2-22 to install the printer driver and to specify the printer destination
setting.
• Raw
This is a print application used with Windows 2000/XP. It can print at higher speeds than
LPD. See "Printer Connection Method (LPD/Raw)," on p. 2-22 to install the printer driver
and to specify the printer destination setting.
• IPP
(Internet Printing Protocol)
This is a print application that can be used with Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP. It uses the
HTTP protocol to print using internet/intranet connections. See "Printer Connection
(IPP)," on p. 2-33 to install the printer driver and specify the printer destination setting.
• FTP
(File Transfer Protocol)
This is a print application that prints files by copying them to the printer using FTP client
software. For details, see "Printer Management," on p. 2-37.

Troubleshooting
This section describes how to resolve basic network printing problems.
Detailed information concerning the machine cannot be set or browsed using a web browser
(Remote UI).
6
Cause
The IP addresses of computers on which the web browser (Remote UI) is used
are not allowed in the IP Address Range Settings menu in the Remote UI.
Remedy
If the IP address range settings in the Remote UI do not permit the IP address
of a computer on which a web browser (Remote UI) is used, you cannot set the
machine setting items or browse information on the machine.
Check the IP address range settings in the Remote UI. (See Chapter 2,
"Remote UI Functions," in the Remote UI Guide.)
Appendix
Unable to Print from a TCP/IP Network
Cause 1
The machine and cable are not properly connected.
Remedy
After checking the following connections, restart the machine.
Check that the machine is connected to the network using the proper cable.
(See Chapter 1, "Before You Start Using This Machine," in the PCL Printer
Guide.)
Cause 2
TCP/IP network is not properly set up.
Remedy
Confirm that the IP addresses are properly set up. Check if the IP addresses
were set using DHCP, BOOTP, or RARP, and then confirm that they are
operating.
Cause 3
The computer that is printing is not properly set up.
Remedy
Check the following:
• Confirm that the proper printer driver is installed. Check if you are printing
from Windows 95/98/Me, each computer must have a printer driver installed.
For instructions on installing printer drivers, see Chapter 1, "Before You Start
Using This Machine," in the PCL Driver Guide.
• Confirm that the correct printer is set as the output destination for the
computer that is printing. Check the output destination for the Printer in the
Control Panel or Print Manager.
6-2
Troubleshooting
• If you are using LPD with Windows 95/98/Me, confirm that the spooling
settings are made correctly. (See steps 3 to 5 in "Windows 95/98/Me," on p. 222.)
Cause 4
The name of the file being printed is too long.
Remedy
Normally LPR (or the Microsoft TCP/IP Printer, if you are using Windows NT/
2000/XP) sends jobs either under the name of the application software used for
printing, or the file name. However, a job name longer than 255 characters
cannot be sent to the printer. To correct this problem, rename the file with a
shorter name.
Cause 5
The IP address of the computer from which data are to be sent to the machine is
not permitted in the IP Address Range Settings menu in the Remote UI.
Remedy
Check the IP address range settings in the Remote UI. (See Chapter 2,
"Remote UI Functions," in the Remote UI Guide.)
Unable to Print from a NetWare Network
The machine and cable are not properly connected.
Remedy
After checking the following connections, restart the machine.
Check that the machine is connected to the network using the proper cable.
(See Chapter 1, "Before You Start Using This Machine," in the PCL Printer
Guide.)
Cause 2
The NetWare network is not properly set up.
Remedy
6
Appendix
Cause 1
Check the following:
• Confirm that the NetWare file server is running.
• Confirm that there is sufficient disk space on the NetWare file server. Large
files cannot be printed if there is insufficient disk space.
• Start NetSpot Console, NetSpot Device Installer, NWADMIN, or PCONSOLE,
and then confirm that the print queue is set up properly and is active.
• Confirm that the network settings of the machine are correctly set. (See
"Printer Protocol Settings," on p. 3-8.) Check the following in particular:
- A valid frame type is selected from Frame Type.
- Print Server Name and Printer Number are correctly specified.
Cause 3
The computer that is printing is not properly set up.
Troubleshooting
6-3
Remedy
Check the following:
• Confirm that the proper print driver is installed. If you are printing from
Windows 95/98/Me, each computer must have a printer driver installed.
• For instructions on installing printer drivers, see Chapter 1, "Before You Start
Using This Machine," in the PCL Driver Guide.
• Confirm that the correct printer is set as the output destination for the
computer that is printing. In Windows 95/98/Me, confirm the output destination
for the Printer in the Control Panel or Print Manager.
Cause 4
Data transmission is not possible from the NetWare server to the machine on
another subnet.
Remedy
When the NetWare server transmits data to the machine, NCP Burst Mode is
used. But depending on the network environment, the NetWare server fails to
transmit data to a printer on another subnet. In this case, set NCP Burst Mode
of the printer protocol to 'Off'. NCP Burst Mode cannot be set with NetSpot
Console or NetSpot Device Installer; use a web browser or an FTP client to set
it. (See "Printer Protocol Settings," on p. 3-8.)
Unable to Print from a NetBIOS Network or the Printer Port Name is not displayed in [Print to
the following port].
Appendix
6
Cause 1
The machine and cable are not properly connected.
Remedy
After checking the connections, restart the machine.
Check that the machine is connected to the network using the proper cable.
(See Chapter 1, "Before You Start Using This Machine," in the PCL Printer
Guide.)
Cause 2
The computer that is printing is on a different subnet to the machine.
Remedy
The machine uses NetBEUI protocol for printing, so printing cannot be
performed in a network environment with a router between the computer that is
printing and the machine. Use a different protocol for printing, or print from the
machine without going through the router.
Cause 3
The computer that is printing is not properly set up.
Remedy
Check the following:
• Confirm that the proper print driver is installed in each computer. For
instructions on installing printer drivers, see Chapter 1, "Before You Start Using
This Machine," in the PCL Driver Guide.
• Confirm that the correct printer is set as the output destination for the
computer that is printing, and that the spool is properly set. (See "Setting the
Printer Destination," on p. 3-10.) In Windows 95/98/Me, confirm the output
destination for the printer in the control panel or Print Manager.
6-4
Troubleshooting
Cause 4
The IP address of the computer from which data are to be sent to the machine is
not permitted in the IP Address Range Settings menu in the Remote UI.
Remedy
Check the IP address range settings in the Remote UI. (See Chapter 2,
"Remote UI Functions," in the Remote UI Guide.)

Banding
Specifies the method for the Banding operation performed in the printer driver. As
Banding defines the output image data of a page by processing it in rectangular bitmap
sections called Bands, you can print a document faster.
If [On] is selected, Banding is constantly performed; but if [Auto] is selected, Banding is
performed only when necessary.
BOOTP
BOOTstrap Protocol. A protocol that enables a client machine to automatically obtain
network setup information from a server over a TCP/IP network. BOOTP enables a client
to automatically locate such information as the host name, domain name, and IP address,
so that it is not necessary to create these items manually.
Buffer size
Container object
An object in the directory tree of a NetWare network which can hold other objects. An
organizational unit such as a company department is a container object. This
organizational unit can contain objects representing network resources, such as
workstations, servers, and printers.
Context
In NetWare, this indicates the location of an object existing in the directory tree.
Cookie
A file left on a user's computer when the user visits a web site. A cookie allows the web
site to recognize the user on subsequent visits. Cookies are generally used to enable a
user to automatically sign on to certain web sites and to customize the features offered by
such sites.
Daemon
A process that runs in the background and performs a specified operation, at predefired
times or in response to certain events. Typical daemons include print spoolers and
automated network information system protocols.
Glossary

Appendix
The size of a data area, or buffer, shared by devices or programs working at different
speeds or with different priorities. The buffer is designed to prevent one device or process
from being held up by another. For this to be possible, the buffer must be set up correctly.
DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. A protocol that automatically specifies the network
settings of a client on a TCP/IP network. Many of the settings required to set up TCP/IP,
which is the standard protocol of the Internet, can be made automatically.
DNS
Domain Name System. The system that associates the IP address assigned to a
computer with the domain name.
DNS server
Domain Name System server. The system that maintains a database that translates the
domain names of Internet servers, such as "www.w3.org," into Internet Protocol (IP)
addresses, such as "18.176.0.26".
Domain
Management concept that divides large scale networks into groups for identifying
individual computers and users. The internet is managed by classifying domains
according to country, type (business, organization, education, etc.), company, etc.
Ethernet
An industry-standard local area network (LAN) system for connecting together multiple
computers. Data is sent from one computer to another by breaking it into packets, and a
packet reaches its destination smoothly without any collision with other packets.
Appendix

File server
A personal computer or workstation to which two or more users on client personal
computers can gain access via a local area network (LAN) in order to share and use its
hard disk drive.
Frame type
The packet format that the network adapter of a computer uses to communicate over a
network. On Ethernet, there are four frame types: Ethernet 802.2, Ethernet 802.3,
Ethernet ll, and Ethernet SNAP.
FTP
File Transfer Protocol. A client-server protocol enabling a user to transfer files on one
computer to and from another computer over a TCP/IP network. The File Transfer Protocol
also governs the client program with which the user transfers files.
Gateway Address
The default address of a network or Web site. It provides a single domain name and point
of entry to the site.
HP-GL/2
A graphics language that allows computer applications to draw graphic images using
printers. Images in HP-GL/2 are represented as vector graphics. Vector objects describe
an image in terms of geometric shapes, such as lines and polygons, and fills. HP-GL/2 is
supported by your Canon machine.
6-16
Glossary
HTTP
Hypertext Transfer Protocol. The client-server TCP/IP protocol used on the World Wide
Web for the transfer of HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) documents across the
Internet.
Internet Protocol (IP)
The underlying set of networking rules that describes how data is transmitted across the
Internet. Internet Protocol allows data from one computer to be split into packets to be
sent to another computer with a specific IP address.
IP address
Internet Protocol address. A 32-bit numeric address used by IP (internet protocol) to
specify a computer on the Internet. The IP address is usually written as four numbers
separated by periods. An example is 128.121.4.5.
IPP
Internet Printing Protocol. A protocol used between a client and a print server for carrying
out remote printing over the Internet.
LAA
LAN
Local Area Network. It is a network system formed by linking a server, workstations, and
computers, which are all located in the same building or some other relatively limited area.
Log in
Entering a user name and password as a means of user authentication to start a
computer session or access to a service.
LPD
Line Printer Daemon. A daemon is a program that runs, without human intervention, to
accomplish a given task. The Line Printer Daemon controls the flow of print jobs to a
printer.
MAC address
Media Access Control address. The hardware address of the network adapter of a
computer connected to a local area network.
Glossary

Appendix
Locally Administered Address. When a device is powered on, its network address is
presented to the network. The default network address assigned by the manufacturer at
the time of production is known as the Universally Administered Address (UAA), while an
address specified by the network administrator to override the UAA is the Locally
Administered Address (LAA). Each LAA must be unique on a Local Area Network.
NetBEUI
NetBIOS Enhanced User Interface. NetBEUI is a network protocol originally designed by
IBM and later extended by Microsoft and Novell. In a small network, NetBEUI is more
efficient than other protocols such as TCP/IP. It is supported natively by IBM operating
systems and Microsoft Windows to provide services such as file sharing and printing.
NetBIOS
Network Basic Input Output System. A program that allows applications on different
computers to communicate within a local area network (LAN). NetBIOS is used in
Ethernet, Token Ring, and Windows NT networks.
NetWare
Novell NetWare. Novell Inc.'s client-server network operating system for the IBM PC.
NetWare uses the IPX/SPX, NetBEUI, or TCP/IP network protocols. NetWare supports
MS-DOS, Microsoft Windows, OS/2, and Macintosh clients. NetWare for Unix gives users
access to Unix hosts.
OS/2
A family of multitasking operating systems developed by IBM for Intel x86-based
computers. OS/2 provides both a graphic user interface similar to Windows as well as a
command line interface similar to DOS. Add-ons to OS/2 allow it to run DOS and Windows
applications.

Appendix
Packet Signature
Encrypted signatures used when exchanging data packets to guarantee that a packet
really came from the computer that it claims to have come from. Packet Signature is
designed to prevent packet forgery and unauthorized Supervisor access to a NetWare
server.
Protocol
A set of rules that govern the transmission of data across a network. Examples of
protocols are FTP, DHCP, BOOTP, RARP, IPP, and TCP/IP.
Proxy server
A server that provides a cache of files available on remote servers that are slow or
expensive to access. The term "proxy server" normally refers to a World Wide Web server
that, on receiving a URL, tries to supply the requested file from its cache. If it cannot
locate the file there, the proxy server would bring it from the remote server and also save
a copy in its cache so that the next request can be obtained locally.
Queue server mode
When the printer is used in NetWare's queue server mode, all print server functions are
provided by the printer itself, and no other print server hardware nor software is required.
RARP
Reverse Address Resolution Protocol. A protocol that associates a network adapter
address (MAC address) with an Internet Protocol (IP) address.
6-18
Glossary
Raster
Raster graphics describes an image as a pattern of dots, compared to vector graphics
which represents an image as a geometrical formula. Each row of color dots in the mosaic
of color dots constitutes one raster graphic. In a printer, a raster graphic is used as the
master image from which a page is printed, because the image can be transferred to
paper by printing one raster at a time.
Raw
This is a print application used with Windows 2000/XP. It can print at higher speeds than
LPD.
RIP (Raster Image Processor)
The hardware and/or software functions of a printer that convert vector graphic
descriptions from a computer into raster graphic images that can be printed.
Scope ID
The Scope ID is a character string value that is appended to the NetBIOS name, and is
used for all NetBIOS over TCP/IP communications. It provides a way for a computer to
communicate only with others sharing the same Scope ID.
SMB
Source Routing
Normally, a host has no control over the route taken by a packet it sends. Source routing
is a technique whereby the sender of a packet can specify the route that a packet should
take through the network to its destination.
Spooling
Simultaneous Peripheral Operations On-Line. Spooling means putting jobs in a buffer,
which is a special area in memory or on a disk. Because devices access data at different
rates, the buffer provides a waiting station where the data can wait until the device for
which it is meant is ready to access it.
Subnet Mask
SUBNETwork mask. The method used to determine which subgroup, or subnet, an IP
address belongs to on TCP/IP networks, all devices whose IP addresses have the same
prefix would belong to the same subnet. Dividing a network into subnets is useful for both
security and performance reasons.
Switching hub
A network connection box to which a number of computers can be connected. The
switching hub forwards a data packet from the network to the appropriate computer
according to the packet's address. Conventional hubs simply send every packet to every
connected computer. Since a switching hub forwards packets only to their intended
recipients, it provides greater efficiency.
Glossary

Appendix
Server Message Block. A protocol that provides file and printer sharing over a network for
Windows computers.
TCP/IP
Acronym for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. The protocol used to
connect to the Internet and to wide-area networks.
Token Ring
A local area network system developed by IBM, in which conflict during message
transmission is avoided by granting "tokens" that allow computers to send messages. The
system can transmit data at 4 or 16 Mbps.
UAA
Universally Administered Address.
See also LAA.
URL
Uniform Resource Locator. A standard way of specifying the location of an object, usually
a web page, on the Internet. The URL for a web page would look something like this:
"http://www.w3.org/default.html". Here, "http:" indicates that a web page is being
accessed, "http://www.w3.org" is the address of the server containing the web page, and
"default.html" is the file name under which the web page is stored on the server.
Vector Graphics
See Raster.
