Installing Print Server on NetWare
4.x/5.x
Due to its architecture and functionality, the print server
must work under NetWare 4.x/5.x NDS Bindery Emulation.
When you install the NetWare file server for the first time,
by default, the installation program will automatically set up
the Bindery Emulation function for you by adding “SET
BINDERY CONTEXT =” in the AUTOEXEC.NCF file. By
default, the bindery context will only be set on your
organization (O) object.
If you have ever modified this line, or if you have ever
added any organization units (OU) to your NDS tree after
the NetWare system was installed, please read the
following section before you install the print server.
For the purpose of illustration, we assume the NDS tress

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.
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.

Basic TCP/IP Installation Overview
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 print server. Each method will be detailed in
the following section.
1. Use the Network Print Monitor utility.

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 five LED lights to assist in
diagnosing problems that are the result of the network
and/or the print server hardware itself.
Power (Orange)
When this light is on, the print server unit is properly
connected to the power adapter.
9-1
Troubleshooting
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. This LED, however, may flicker
whenever the data are being transmitted and printed.
Note: Make sure that the Orange 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.
Flow/Link (Green)
If the network cabling is Twisted-Pair Cable, and when this
light is ON, the Twisted-Pair cable connection is problem
free.
USB/PARALLEL (Green)
When this light is blinking, the print job is processing.
Cable Related Problems
In most cases, the print server fails to send and receive
network data due to incorrect use of the network cable
and/or to connector problems. Twisted-Pair Cable is
10BaseT/100BaseT 8-wire Unshielded Twisted-Pair
Cable. The pin assignments for the RJ-45 connector used
for this cable must conform to the UTP cable
specifications.
9-2
Troubleshooting
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.
Print Port Related Problems
Printing data failure may be caused by a loose connection
of the print server to the Centronics parallel port of the
printer. Check to see if any of the pins on the 36-pin
connector are damaged. In addition, check the cable
connection. If the pins are damaged, contact your dealer
for a replacement connector.

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.
9-9
Troubleshooting
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.
9 - 10
Troubleshooting
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.
9 - 11
Troubleshooting
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:
9 - 12
Troubleshooting
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.
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.
9 - 13
Troubleshooting
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!
