1-2 Register print server name.
Example: Register the print queue name by “pboxlp”:
# lpadmin -p pboxlp -m netstandard -o protocol=bsd
-o dest=pbox:lp -v /dev/null
(Print queue name)
(Host name) (Remote printer name)

2. Printing
2-1 This section explains how to print using [lp] command. For more details, refer to Solaris manual.
# lp -d pboxlp <Name of print file>
This causes the banner page to be automatically printed.
To disable the banner printing feature, add the following option, “-o nobanner”.
# lp -d pboxlp -o nobannert <Name of print file>
Alternatively, type,
# lpadmin -p pboxlp -o nobanner
directly edit the filter file generated under /etc/lp/interfaces.
Either of these options disables banner print function.
Example: Using an editor e.g. vi, open the file shown below. Change “nobanner=no” to “nobanner=yes”.
# vi /etc/lp/interfaces/pboxlp
nobanner=no ---> nobanner=yes
3. Cancel the print request.
3-1 Use “cancel” command to cancel the current print job request.
-Depending on the timing or Solaris specification, canceling attempt will fail.
TIP
4. Check the printer status
4-1 Use “lpstat” to verify the printer status.
# lpstat -p pboxlp
-Depending on the UNIX specification, the command will fail to correctly display the printer status.

Command absolute path and configuration method may vary depending on OS version. Refer
to your workstation manual for more details.
-Remote printer can not be used with PRICOM.
TIP
1. Prepare the print queue.
1-1 Log in to the UNIX machine by “root”.
# login root
1-2 Cancel the print scheduler.
# /usr/sbin/lpshut
1-3 Register the print server.
Example: Register the host name “pbox”:

# lpstat -p pboxlp
-Depending on the UNIX specification, the command will fail to correctly display the printer status.
TIP
TIP
[Limits]
When running PRICOM with Solaris 2.x, following limits occurs due to Solaris specifications.
1) If, after starting printing, the printer goes off line and cannot receive data for quite a while, timeout
occurs on the Solaris side and then the printing continues (re-connection). This means that the data
stream to the printer is discontinued, and the first page will be sent again.
2) When the printer status is displayed in the form “lpstat -p<printer name>”, optional character string
returned to show the status (e.g. PrinterReady) cannot be interpreted by the Solaris. As a result,
“Faulted” is displayed followed by unintentional characters.
3) When a print-related command is sent to PRICOM while the Solaris is sending data from the same
machine, the command cannot function as it should. This is because Solaris cannot output another
packet until it finishes the transmission of the current data. Thus, “system not responding” will be
displayed in response to “lpstat -p <printer name>.
4) Certain commands such as lpstat following cancel command will result in error. In such case,
printer scheduler daemon may not be running, so verify using “lpstat -r”. If “scheduler is not
running” is displayed, reboot the printer scheduler daemon by typing in as below.
/bin/sh /etc/init.d/lp start
5) Even if “cancel” is used to delete a job that does not exist, no error occurs with Solaris.

NOTE
About FTP
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a protocol used to transfer a file by TCP/IP. By transferring data to
PRICOM logical directory, printing can be executed.
Logical directory
PRICOM is provided with 2 logical directories for correct printing and should be transferred by [cd]
command.
To print a file using a printer driver, go to “lp” or "lp_u1" directory. And then transfer the converted file.

TIP
-When printing using “ftp” command, any input to “User” and “Password” will not disturb printing job
unless “root” is used in “User”. When the “User” name is “root”, type the password configured in
environment settings.
Example: To log in to a printer whose host name is “pbox”
(or to log in to a printer having IP address “192.168.10.100”).

2. Using “cd” command to move to destination directory.
TIP
-PRICOM has hierarchical structure for destination directory. Print data to the root directory is processed
as output to “lp”.
Example: To move to lp directory and verify the current directory.

a PC exclusively used for print server) is required. PRICOM operates in the following way
when in the print server mode.
1. A print job is spooled from the client to the NetWare server.
2. PRICOM derives a job directly from the NetWare server.

assigned automatically, which may rewrite the IP address that you have manually
assigned to PRICOM. To avoid this problem, tick off Use DHCP/BOOTP check box and
configure the IP address again.
Error during printing
CHECK
If you try to print while other users are printing large data (e.g. many pages or color
pages with high resolution), the printer is unable to accept your print job until the
ongoing print is finished. If the waiting time of your print job exceeds a certain limit,
a time out occurs, which causes the error message. In such case, execute the
print job again afterwards.
Dial-up connection box appears when printing job is executed.
CHECK
Printing will be complete after you cancel this dial box to shift the process to LAN adapter
from the dial-up adapter. This problem is caused due to Windows specifications.

IPv6 Function(Preliminary Release)
This document describes the usage and limitation of the IPv6 function of PRICOM H-260/H260U.
TIP
-The IPv6 function is provided for technical preview purpose only.
Our customer support would not handle questions about IPv6.
What is IPv6?
IPv6 is the next generation of TCP/IP. Although TCP/IP protocol is widely used with the
Internet, the current IPv4 version has limitation of its relatively
small address space of 32bit. IPv6 provides incredibly large address space of 128bit, and it
also has many improved features than IPv4.
TIP
-In order to use IPv6 functionality of PRICOM H-260/H-260U, the other component of the network
(Router, Client PC, etc) has to be already IPv6 enabled.
Outline for IPv6 function
Product release
PRICOM H-260/H-260U supports following functionality over IPv6;
* Configuration over TELNET and HTTP.
* Printing over FTP and LPR.
* Connection check with ping6.
* Route tracing with traceroute6.
IPv6 address
The link-local address of PRICOM H-260/H-260U will be as follows;
FE80:0:0:0:0:0280:92FF:FExx:yyzz
(xxyyzz is the lower 3-digit of the Ethernet address in hexadecimal format)
Appendix
3
Users Manual SX
NOTE
TIP
-The IPv6 address could be automatically configured if there is an IPv6-enabled router with statelessauto configuration server capability on the network.
Limitation
-PRICOM H-260/H-260U supports link-local and stateless-auto configuration for IPv6 address
configuration.
Thus, the manual-configuration and statefull-auto configuration (DHCPv6) are not supported.
-IPsec features (Both AH(Authentication Header) and ESP(Encapsulating Security Payload))
are not supported.
-The traffic-class and flow-label in the IPv6 header is fixed to 0.
-Jumbo-Payload is not supported.
-PRICOM H-260/H-260U supports send/receive fragmentation. However the maximum payload
size in a single packet is limited up to 3072, including the header length.
-SNMP IPv6 MIB is not supported.
-The utilities shipped with PRICOM H-260/H-260U are not IPv6 enabled.
-When printing with IPv6, the IP address in the banner page is printed as 0.0.0.0.
How to use
Enabling the IPv6 functionality of PRICOM H-260/H-260U
The IPv6 functionality is disabled as factory default.
In order to enable it, follow the instruction below;
(1) Assign IPv4 address in usual way
(Refer to the setup guide for more details)
(2) Access to the configuration of PRICOM H-260/H-260U with TELNET.
TIP
-You can not configure IPv6 functionality with the utilities shipped with PRICOM H-260/H-260U.
Please use Web browser or TELNET to do that.
(3) Set IPv6 item as Enabled in the TCP/IP Configuration menu.
(4) Save the configuration, then restart PRICOM H-260/H-260U.
The IPv6 functionality will be enabled after PRICOM H-260/H-260U is restarted.

Users Manual SX
Enabling the IPv6 functionality of the PC
Following instructions are how to enable IPv6 functionality of the Microsoft Windows XP.
Please refer to the manual for other operating systems.
(1) Enabling IPv6 functionality
Run the "ipv6.exe" from the command prompt. In order to open the command prompt
window, run the "cmd" command from "Run..." menu in the start menu.
(Example)
C:/> ipv6 install
-Please refer to the Microsoft Website to know more about "ipv6.exe"
NOTE
(2) Register the IPv6 address and the hostname into the hosts file
When you specify the target address, you can use the hostname rather than
the IPv6 address if you registered them into the hosts file.
On the Windows XP, the host file is stored at;
Folder: C:/windows/system32/drivers/etc
(Assuming the system drive is C:)
File : hosts
Add the address/hostname information with using notepad or other text editing
software.
NOTE
(Example of Hosts file)
# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on indivisual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
#
38.25.63.10 x.acme.com
# x client host
127.0.0.1

Users Manual SX
TIP
-If you use IPv6 function on Windows XP by adding link-local address to the hosts file, you need to
specify the default interface by IPv6 rtu command. If you have multi-interface, you can not use
this function.
* For further operational information on "ipv6.exe", please refer to the Microsoft Corporation website.
(3) How to use PRICOM H-260/H-260U on the Windows XP
Once the Windows XP becomes IPv6 enabled and the hostname/address was configured
in hosts file, you can do...
-Configuration / status display with Internet Explorer 6.0
-Printing from "Print services for Unix" port.
-File-printing with LPR or FTP from the command prompt.
-Connection check with ping6.
TIP
Appendix
-The "standard TCP/IP port" printing and "IPP" printing of current versions of Windows XP are not
IPv6 enabled.
In order to printing over IPv6, you have to install "Print services for Unix" component from the
control panel.
Please refer to the Section.4 "Printing LPR port on the Windows XP" of the users manual of
PRICOM H-260/H-260U.
-When use with Internet Explorer 6.0 or Unix print services, you have to specify the address as
hostname rather than IPv6 address.
