SNMP Setup
TCP/IP networks use a standard management protocol called Simple Network
Management Protocol (SNMP). SNMP is widely used in the industry as a solution
for remote network management and monitoring of networking devices. SNMP
actually includes a protocol, a database structure specification, and a set of
database objects. The database objects are contained in a standard database
called Management Information Base (MIB) that is stored on the networking
device called SNMP agent. The print server's SNMP implementation runs in a
TCP/IP environment.
53
802.11n Wireless Print Server User Manual
A host on the network running Network Management System (NMS) software
can access the print server device by reading and writing the MIB objects stored
in the device. The Network Management Systems are available from many
third-party vendors, such as Hewlett-Packard's OpenView.
When accessing (traversing) MIB objects in the print server using NMS
software called SNMP manager, you need to provide a community name in each
SNMP request for authentication purpose. The print server supports up to two
community names. The default community name is public (case-sensitive), with
Read Only access right in default.
When an unusual condition or activity occurs, the SNMP agent alerts the SNMP
manager through SNMP traps. Following list summaries SNMP trap messages that
the print server will send out.
Activities/SNMP Trap Messages
Description
Link Up or Link Down
When the network interface on the print server
fails, a link down trap message is generated; if the
network interface comes back to life, a link up trap
message is sent.
Cold Start or Warm Start
When the print server restarts, the cold start or
warm start trap message is generated.
Authentication Failure
When the print server received a SNMP request
with a community name that does not match the
community name the print server is configured
with (stored in the print server's memory), an
authentication failure trap message is generated.
In the print server's SNMP implementation, the following MIB objects are
available for updating.
MIB Object Names
system.sysContact
Description
Indicates the network administrator's name.
system.sysName
Indicates the print server's name for identification.
system.sysLocation
Indicates the location of the print server.

When installing your print server in a TCP/IP environment, IP addresses are
essential as a basic means of communications. It is therefore necessary to first
assign an IP address to your print server unit. After assigning an IP address, the
print server can be configured accordingly.
Assigning an IP Address
The first step to install a print server on a TCP/IP network is to assign the print
server an IP address and other related TCP/IP settings before the print server can
function. You can select the following two methods to specify an IP address the

9. Troubleshooting
General Troubleshooting Overview
The most common problems, which cause the print server to perform improperly,
are covered in this chapter. If a problem still exists after reading this chapter,
please contact your dealer for technical support.
LED Light Indicators
The print server is equipped with LED lights to assist in diagnosing problems that
are the result of the network and/or the print server hardware itself.
Status (Orange)
When the print server unit is powered on, the Status LED will flash five times as
part of the unit’s Power On Self Test (POST). This indicates that the print server
hardware is properly configured.
Note: Make sure that the LED flashes five times (POST) upon connecting the
power. If the unit does not flash five times, contact your dealer for a
replacement or repair.
WLAN (Orange)
When the WLAN enabled, the WLAN LED will be on. When data transmitting, it
will be
blinking.
USB (Green)
Print server is being connected with USB printer.
Power Related Problems
The print server requires an external AC power adapter in order for it to function.
If you have a power problem, check to see whether the power cord or its
connectors are damaged. More importantly, check to see that the AC power
adapter included with the print server matches the AC voltage in your country or
area. Using an incorrect AC adapter will damage your print server.
76
802.11n Wireless Print Server User Manual
Print Port Related Problems
Printing data failure may be caused by a loose connection of the print server to the
USB port of the printer. Check to see if any of the pins on the USB connector are
damaged. In addition, check the cable connection. If the pins are damaged,
contact your dealer for a replacement connector.
Windows 2000/XP Troubleshooting

Moving Your Computer to A New Segment
If you are using the print server through the Network Print Port on your NT or
Windows 95/98/Me computer and your computer is going to be moved onto
another segment, you have to reconfigure the print server on your computer to
use your print server. However, this situation is like moving the print server to a
new segment. Please refer to the “Moving the print server to a new segment”
section for more detailed reconfiguration instructions.
Novell NetWare Troubleshooting
Many printing problems can be traced back to incorrect or incomplete print server
installations. It is always wise to check the installation configurations first.
In some cases, if necessary, delete the print server, print queue(s) or other
setting(s). Next recreate the necessary parameters or reconfigure the print
server by running the PSAdmin.
TCP/IP Troubleshooting
When you are configuring a new print server on your NT/UNIX server through LPR
Port printing under TCP/IP protocol, you might encounter the following problem in
your initial installation steps:
" I can do the "arp" command. However, when I am going to ping or tftp the
print server, it always shows Request timed out. I have checked the print server’s
power and it exactly passed the POST. Besides, the network cabling is OK. As
such, I can't do tftp command to get and put the print server's configuration file
and save its IP address permanently. I can't, therefore, continue installing the
print server."
Regarding this problem, there are three possible causes:
A. The print server's Node ID you specified in the "arp" command is not
correct.
If this is the case, please ensure the Node ID field in the corresponding entry of
the print server's IP address in NT's ARP cache table is correct by typing the
following command at NT's DOS prompt. "arp -a"
If the Node ID shown on the screen doesn't match the print server's Node ID,
please follow the instructions below to reset the entry.
1.
At NT's DOS prompt, type "arp -d <print server's IP address>" to delete the
current entry.
80
802.11n Wireless Print Server User Manual
2.
Type "arp -s <print server's IP> <print server's Node ID>" to specify a new
ARP entry.
3.
Refer to Chapter 7 for the detailed instructions to complete the installation.
B. The print server's IP address is duplicated or is as same as another
computer's IP address on the network.
If this is the case, please consult your network administrator to obtain an unused
IP address for your print server.
C. The print server is on one segment and your Windows NT server is on
the other segment.
(This troubleshooting guide will also apply to a multiple-segmented network while
installing the print server)
For example, assuming the print server is on Segment A, NT server is on Segment
B, and there is a gateway computer between Segment A and Segment B. The
network might be a complete TCP/IP network, or a hybrid of TCP/IP and IPX/SPX
network.
If this is the case, you have to adopt the following steps, depending on which
platform the gateway computer is.
a. If the gateway computer is a NT/UNIX server:
You have to do the same "arp" command to specify an entry on the NT/UNIX
computer as a gateway in order for it to forward your subsequent "ping" or/and
"tftp" commands to the print server.
b. If the gateway computer is a Novell NetWare file server:
1.
Due to the presence of this NetWare file server, the IPX/SPX protocol might
be used on your network. Therefore, we strongly suggest you run the
PSAdmin from any client computer and select "Manual Setup" to specify
the print server's IP address (For more detailed information about Manual
Setup, please refer to Chapter 3).
2.
If the solution described above is not applicable, you have to follow the
instructions below to set up the print server's IP address.
For the purpose of explanation, we assume the NT server is on Segment A and its
IP address is 192.72.214.66 (subnet mask: 255.255.255.224), the print server is
going to be installed on Segment B, with IP address, for example,
192.72.214.100.
81
802.11n Wireless Print Server User Manual
1.
Find an unused IP address on Segment A for temporary use in the following
steps, for example, 192.72.214.68.
2.
Connect your print server to Segment A as a networked node.
3.
On your NT server, type, for example, "arp -s 192.72.214.68
00-40-01-3F-02-AB". Please note, in this arp command you have to type
192.72.214.68 on purpose. Do not type this IP address as 192.72.214.100.
4.
Type "tftp 192.722.214.68 get config.txt". The configuration file will then be
retrieved and transferred to your NT server.
5.
Type "edit config.txt" to modify this configuration file.
6.
In your editor, modify "BoxIPAddress" field from "0.0.0.0" to
"192.72.214.100". Leave other options as default and do not change
their values. When done, save this new file and quit from your editor.
Please note, in this step you must specify an IP address which is
valid on Segment B, such as 192.72.214.100 in this example, rather
than 192.72.214.68.
7.
Type, for example, "tftp 192.72.214.68 put config.txt" to save this new
configuration back to print server.
8.
Move the print server back to the Segment B.
9.
Done!
