Hawking HWPS12UG Quick Installation Manual | Manualzz

Congratulations on purchasing Hawking’s HWPS12UG 1-Port

Parallel + 2 USB Ports Wireless G Print Server. The Hawking

HWPS12UG is a powerful and convenient network printing solution that will connect your USB and parallel printers to your network. The

HWPS12UG has a 10/100Mbps auto-sensing port, allowing you to attach it to a 10Base-T or 100Base-TX network without the need for a dedicated PC print server. The HWPS12UG also supports multiple servers and multiple protocols, providing you with the capability to print from anywhere, from any computer and from any application.

Step 1

: In this step, you can setup the name of the print server, the

SMB group name, and the name of each printer port. You can also choose whether to enable/disable the wireless functionality of this print server.

Please note: By keeping the wireless function setting on

AUTO

you will need to unplug your Ethernet cable and power cable once configuration settings are saved and your print server is rebooted.

Re-insert your power cable to boot the print server into

Wireless

Mode.

(Please only perform this step after the configuration process is complete)

Step 2

: Select to enable or disable your networking and printing protocols. We suggest enabling all protocols for full print server functionality.

15

Step 3

: Set the IP address of the HWPS12UG. You may specify a static IP address or use “Auto” to obtain an IP address from your router’s DHCP server.

(It is recommended to use auto if you are unsure about your network IP address)

Please set the print server’s subnet mask (typically

255.255.255.0) and the intended gateway.

Please Note:

Your gateway is most likely your router’s IP address.

Step 4

: Set up NetWare printing if desired.

(You may skip setup if you are not using Netware).

Please refer to the manual for more detailed installation information.

Step 5

: Set up AppleTalk printing if desired. Please refer to the manual for more detailed installation information.

SSID, you can choose to manually input it here).

19

Step 8

: Select your access point or router from the available wireless client list by highlighting the SSID and pressing

Next

. (If your router or access point SSID is not visible, please hit the scan button again. If the SSID of your access point or router is still not displayed in the window, please check your wireless router or access point settings to make sure it is set to broadcast its SSID).

Step 9

: If your wireless router or access point has WEP active, please change the settings for the print server to correspond with your router or access point’s current WEP settings.

21

Step 10

: Click “Set” to finalize your settings.

NOTE: If using the AUTO Wireless setting, please unplug your

Ethernet cable and power cable once configuration settings are saved. Re-insert your power cable to boot the print server into

Wireless Mode.

For web configuration and advanced configuration options, please refer to your HWPS1UG manual which is located on the

HWPS12UG Installation CD-ROM.

Now that you have completed the administrator’s setup, you can perform the “Client Installation” procedure on all client computers in your network.

IPP Printing

The IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) provides you with a convenient method for remote printing jobs via the TCP/IP protocol. The

HWPS12UG 10/100M 2 USB Ports + 1-port Parallel Wireless G Print

Server can support IPP printing capabilities. It is not necessary to modify 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 HWPS12UG print server by IP. You can even share your printer with users over the Internet who know your printer model, printer port, and the IP address of your

HWPS12UG.

IPP Setup

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.

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 HWPS12UG print server. The

URL format will be “ http://IP:631/LPT_PORT ”. The

IP

portion of the URL will be the print server’s IP address. You will need to write down

631

after the IP address. 631 is the IPP standard port number for IPP printing requests.

LPT_PORT

is the port name of your print server that your printer is connected to. For one port print servers, the

37

port name will be “

lpt1

”. For Hawking’s HWPS12UG three-port print server, the port names are –

lpt1, lpt2 or lpt3

depending on which printer port your printers are connected to. (Please write down the printer port and corresponding printer model for configuring our line of multiple port print servers.) An example IP address will be modeled as follows: The URL will be http://192.168.2.1:631/lpt1 for a print server located on the first printer port (lpt1) of the IP address

192.168.2.1. After entering the URL of print server, click “Next ” and complete the remaining configuration settings to access the shared network printer.

For advanced configuration options, please refer to your

HWPS12UG manual which is located on the HWPS12UG

Installation CD-ROM.
