as follows:
3.5.1
Network Ports Quick Setup
The Network Ports Quick Setup Utility offers a very simple
method to add or remove your print server’s printer port from
the client’s computer.
During the client’s installation procedur e, the system will
automatically search for all print servers on the network and
add them into the printer ports of the client’s computer. (see
below)
If you have just installed another new print server on your
network, you must run this program first. This program will
search for new print servers and allow you to add the new
network printer port into the client’s computer. Perform the
standard Add Printer procedure, and you will be able to print
directly to the printer through the newly installed print server
port.
Please be aware that Network Ports Quick Setup Utility can
only detect and configure all print servers on the same network;
it cannot search and configure print servers on other subnets
across network segments. You must us e the Remote Ports
Utility described in the next section to manage remote (across
network segments) print servers.
3.5.2

Windows NT/2000 Server Installation and
Setup
Please follow the procedures described below for installation
of a peer -to -peer connection (PTPP) between a Windows
NT/2000 Server and the HWPS1UG.
Step1.
If this is your first time installing the print server, please
install the administrator software on your Windows NT/2000
server first. Refer to section 3.2 for installation instructions.
If your network has already an installed working print server
and your Windows NT/2000 server has not yet installed the
PTPP driver, please install the client software. Refer to section
3.4 and 3.5 for installation instructions.
Step2.
Please add/configure Peer -to -Peer Printing on your Windows
NT/2000 network printer and verify that you can print from
Windows NT/2000 to the print server through the installed
PTPP driver.
Step3.
Share the above server’s printer with the network by
perform ing the standard Windows printer sharing installation
process.
4.3
User Installation and Setup
After the server side installation is completed, the client side
will be able to find the server’s shared printer in your Network
Neighborhood. You will then need to perform Window’s
standard Add New Printer procedure. Select “Network
Printer” as shown in the screen below, and complete the
configurations to access the shared printer.
5.
NetWare Network
5.1
System Architecture
We implemented the NetWare printer sharing functionality in
the HWPS1UG, to allow one or more printers attached to the
print server to be connected to your network. The HWPS1UG
can support NetWare print server functions:
- The embedded print server, which emulates the “queue
management functionality” of the NetWare print server, is the
PSERVER program running on the NetWare server. A user first
prints a job at a workstation; the job is routed to a NetWare
server. The NetWare server then stores the job in a print queue
and the print server gets the print job from the queue to the
printer on your network.

The advantages of embedding the NetWare network printing
functionality in the print server include:
Quick and easy installation.
Easy network management.
Enhanced printing performance.
Relief of NetWare’s file server burden.
Each print server should log into a NetWare server before
servicing the print jobs. Each print server will occupy a user
account with which it can log into the NetWare server.

UNIX System Network
6.1
Introduction
The HWPS1UG can use TCP/IP printing through the Unix lpd
(Line Printer Daemon) protocol. The lpd protocol is based on
the BSD version of Unix and is 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 system.
To configure the print server for lpd printing, perform the
following procedures below:
1. Enable the HWPS1UG’s TCP/IP Support.
2. Set the HWPS1UG’s IP address.
3. Verify the HWPS1UG’s IP Address.
4. Configure remote lpd printing on the host.
5. Print a test page.
In the next section, we will describe these five procedures in
depth.
6.2
Enable The HWPS1UG’s TCP/IP Support
The default configuration of the HWPS1UG has TCP/IP
support enabled. You can configure the HWPS1UG to enable
TCP/IP support using the configuration program or PSETUP
program included on the HWPS1UG C D-ROM.
6.3
Setup the HWPS1UG’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 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 the DHCP protocol
and the procedures to configure the DHCP server database are
different. This manual does not describe the DHCP server
configuration on Unix systems. It is highly recommended that
the DHCP server should be located on the same network as the
HWPS1UG.
6.3.2
BOOTP
If you have the BOOTP daemon, bootpd, running on your
UNIX and is accessible to the print server, you can use the
BOOTP protocol to set up th e 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 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 as the host of the BOOTP server with
superuser (root) admin rights. 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 the following line:
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 the HWPS1UG; the ht=1
tag specifies that the hardware type is Ethernet. The ha= tag
specifies that the Ethernet address of the HWPS1UG 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.
For example, below is an example of 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:
6.4
Verify the HWPS1UG’s IP Address
To verify that your print server is responding to the newly
assigned IP address, use a PING command to check the
HWPS1UG’s response:
ping ip-address
6.5
Configure Remote lpd Printing on the Host
You can use this procedure to configure your Unix host(s) to
allow printing to your network. The procedure below can be
used for Unix variants that are related to BSD Unix, like
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 parallel 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 the following line:
203.66.191.186
pserver
2. Create a spool directory for the printer in the same
directory where spool directories are normally kept on the
machine, such as /var/spool or /var/spool/lpd:
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 one assigned in the /etc/hosts file.
The sd= entry should correspond to the spool directory you
created in the previous step.
The rp= entry should correspond to the port name of the remote
printer. The values should be lpt1, lpt2, or lpt3, depending on
which printer port your printer is attached to.
The HWPS1UG should now be available for printing from your
Unix host.

LAN is using. Please make sure that the channel number of all
stations and access points are the same as your selected WLAN.
8.4.2.2
Encryption
The HWPS1UG supports the WEP encryption standard to
enhance the security of your wireless LAN. WEP is an
authentication algorithm, which protects your wireless data
from unauthorized users. If using WEP in your wireless
network, please set the authentication type and WEP key of
your print server to the same settings as your wireless station,
router, or access point. The HWPS1UG supports 64/128-bit
WEP encryption. With WEP enabled, your data will be
transmitt ed over the wireless network securely.
WEP Mode / Key Length: You can choose to “Disable” the
WEP function. You also can choose to enable “64-bit WEP ” or
“128-bit WEP ” encryption for use with your wireless networks’
128-bit or 64-bit WEP key. Please note that the length of your
WEP key will determine the amount of encryption used in your
data transmission. The longer your key is, the more processing
power is used which will affect your data transmission speeds.
Key Format: You may select ASCII Characters (alphanumeric
format) or Hexadecimal Digits (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9"
range) to be used as your WEP Key.
Key 1 – Key 4: The WEP keys are used to encrypt data
transmitted through your wireless network. Fill in the data key
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 characters as the encryption keys.
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.
Default Key: Select one of four keys to encrypt your data. You
may change the default values of the predefined keys. Only the
key you select as the “Default key” will be used.
8.4.2.3
Site Survey
You can use this Site Survey function to search for an available
wireless access point. The following information will be listed
for any available access point: SSID, BSSID, Channel, Type,
Encryption and Signal Strength. You can select one access
point in the list for this print server to associate with or you
will have to use the General Settings to manually setup the
wireless parameters.

Web Setup Wizard
8.5.1
System
You also can configure the “Print Server Name,” assign a name
for each printer port of the HWPS1UG, and Enable or Disable
the print servers wireless functionality.
Printer Server Name: This is the name of the print server. You
can use this name to identify the HWPS1UG when you are
searching for the print server through the administration and
client utilities.
Port Name is the name of the printer port. Each printer port has
to be assigned a name. The client utility uses this name to
access the printer port.
8.5.1.1 Admin Password
This is where you set the Administrative user name and
password for the print server.
User Name / Password is used to authenticate the
administrator through the Web administration tool.
8.5.1.2 Advanced Settings
From the Advanced Settings page you can select to
enable/disable each printing protocol or data protocol.
8.5.2
TCP/IP
You can configure the print server to automatically get an IP
from DHCP server or manually specify a static IP. The print
server also has a built -in DHCP server. You can enable this
DHCP server and let it manage your IP address for you.
If you need the HWPS1UG to automatically get an IP address
from the DHCP server, select “Auto IP.” You also can select
“Specify IP” to manually assign an “IP Address,” “Subnet
Mask,” and “Gateway” for the print server.
You can enable/disable the DHCP server and assign a range of
IP addresses here. The DHCP server is disabled by default.
You have to configure your “Start Address,” “End Address,”
“Gateway, ” and “DNS. ” The HWPS1UG will assign a unique IP
address for each client.
8.5.3
NetWare
The HWPS1UG supports the NetWare Bindery Printing method.
The print server periodically polls the NetWare server printer
queues for printing jobs. You have to assign the NetWare
server name, print server polling interval, and the name of
queue on the NetWare server for each prin ter port.
Polling Time is the polling interval of the print server for
queued printing jobs on the NetWare server.
Attached Queue is the name of the printer queue on the
NetWare server. The printer queue keeps all printing jobs
waiting on the NetWare serve r. You have to assign a printer
queue for each printer port of this print server.
NetWare Server is the name of the NetWare file server that
provides printer queues.
8.5.4
AppleTalk
AppleTalk is a data communication protocol often us ed by
Macintosh computers. The HWPS1UG can use these parameters
to join the AppleTalk network and share printers with other
AppleTalk workstations . You have to setup the “ Zone Name ”
and “Printer Type” for each printer port of this print server.
Zone Name: The HWPS1UG has to join an AppleTalk zone
before it can be shared with other workstations. Only
workstations in the same zone can share the printer. If you
want to share the printer to all workstations in all Zones, you
should enter an “*” in the “Zone Name” field.
Printer Type: This is the type of printer attached to each
printer port. You can get the printer type from the
manufacturer of the printer.

IPP Printing
9.1
Introduction
The IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) provides you with a
convenient method for remote printing jobs via the TCP/IP
protocol. The HWPS1UG 2 USB + 1 Parallel Port 10/100M
Print Server can support IPP printing capabilities. It is not
necessary to mo dify any of the print server’s internal settings
to use the IPP printing features. Windows 2000 and Windows
XP computers can use IPP printing functions through the
operating system’s internal IPP functionality. IPP printing will
let you share your network printer with any PC that can access
the HWPS1UG print server by IP. You can even share your
printer with users over the Internet who know your printer
model, printer port, and IP address of your HWPS1UG.
Please make sure that you have the IPX protocol installed before using
IPP for Windows 2000 or XP.
9.2
System Setup
9.2.1
Print Server Side
It is not necessary to modify your IPP settings on the print
server side. Make sure you know your print server’s IPP
settings and make sure they are correctly set to your network’s
IP settings . Contact your system administrator if you are
unfamiliar with your network’s routed IP settings. If you
would like to share your printer with Internet users outside of
your internal network structure, you will have to set an outside
IP address that can access the print server. You also have to
make sure that any gateway, router or firewall does not block
the IPP protocol if you have those devices installed. Please
contact your system administrator or consult your router’s
manual for DMZ or port mapping configuration settings.
9.2.2
Client Side
You will need to perform Window’s standard Add New Printer
procedure. To do this, select the “Network Printer” setting as
shown in the screen below and click “ Next.”
Select “Connect to a printer on the Internet or on a home or
office network” and enter the URL of your HWPS1UG print
server. The URL format will be “ http:// I P : 6 3 1/ L P T _ P O R T ”. The IP
portion of the URL will be the print server’s IP address.
LPT_PORT is the port name of your print server that your
printer is connected to. For one port print servers, the port
name will be “ lpt1”. For Hawking’s three-port print server, the
port names are – lpt1, lpt2 or lpt3 depending on which printer
port your printers are connected to . (Please writ e down the
printer port and corresponding printer model for configuring
our line of multiple port print servers.) The last number you
will need to write down after the port name and colon will be
631. 631 is the IPP standard port number for IPP printing
requests . An example IP address will be modeled as follows:
The URL will be h t t p : / / 1 9 2 . 1 6 8 . 1 2 . 1 3 : 6 3 1/ l p t 1 for a print server
located on the first printer port (lpt1) of the IP address
192.168.12.13. (lpt2 and lpt3 for printers located on the 2nd and
3rd ports respectively.) After entering the URL of print server,
click “Next ” and complete the remaining configuration settings
to access the shared network printer.
