Section 2 – Hardware Installation
Before You Begin
Before installing the print server, make sure you have installed and set up your printer as described in the
documentation that came with the printer and that your printer functions properly. SX-200 Series Print
Servers support a parallel and/or USB connection to your printer.
Hardware Installation (wired and wireless versions)
NOTE: Be sure to review the hardware requirements in the previous section to ensure you have the necessary
information before installing the print server.
1.
Write down the 12-digit MAC address printed on the label located on the bottom of the print
server (for example: 004017023F96). You may need this number in order to configure the print
server.
2.
Mount the print server on either the printer or the desktop:

Printer mount – attach the print server to a suitable location on the side or rear of your
printer by applying an adhesive Velcro strip (provided in the printer mounting kit) to your printer
and at the top of the print server as it is to be attached to your printer.

Desktop mount – attach the adhesive rubber feet (provided in the desktop mounting kit) to the
bottom of the print server as shown below.
Document #40181-420 Rev. B
13
User’s Guide
3.
Connect the print server to your printer(s) using the USB and/or parallel port of your printer.
For a USB connection, use a standard USB A (print server side) to B (printer side) cable. For a
parallel connection, use an IEEE 1284-compliant parallel printer cable.
4.
Plug the print server power supply adapter into a suitable AC receptacle, and then plug the
power supply cable into the print server. The print server will run through a sequence of power-up
diagnostics for a few seconds.

If the print server is operating properly, the power LED will illuminate continuously
(refer to page 1-5 for detailed LED status descriptions).

If the power LED blinks continuously in a regular pattern, a problem exists. If this is the
case, try powering the print server OFF and then ON again.

If the problem persists, refer to the Troubleshooting section in this User’s Guide.
5.
Connect the print server to your network through a switch or hub using a category 5 (CAT5)
Ethernet cable. The print server’s IP address must be configured before a network connection is
available. If your network offers DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol), the print server will
automatically search for a DCHP server upon power up and obtain an IP address. If your network
does not offer DHCP, a static (fixed) IP address must be assigned (see your system administrator for
assistance). In most cases, a fixed IP address is preferred because a DHCP server may not always
assign the same IP address to the print server when the print server is powered ON.
NOTE: The IP address must be within a valid range, unique to your network, and in the same subnet as your PC.
NOTE: For wireless print servers, if a wired connection is established to the unit, the wireless link will be disabled.

User’s Guide
Verifying the Connection to the Printer
NOTE: Before attempting to print, it is very important to verify the connection between the print server and printer.
If this connection is not working, you will not be able to print!
1.
Verify that both the print server and the printer are powered on and ready, and that a USB or
parallel printer cable is properly connected between the print server and printer.
2.
Print a test page by pressing the Test button once. If the connection is good, a test page will print
on the printer. If nothing prints out, make sure that the printer cable is properly connected, your
printer is on line, and that no error conditions exist with the printer (off line, paper jam, out of toner,
etc.).
NOTE: The test page will only work with printers that can directly print PCL, PostScript, or text. It will not work with
some "Windows" printers like the HP DeskJet 820 (which performs the image rasterization in the PC), nor will it work
with HP-GL/2 or RTL plotters (unless the PostScript option is installed). For such devices, you must print a job from
an appropriate application program in order to test the print server-to-printer connection.

Section 3 – Configuration and Management
Configuration Options
SX-200 Series Print Servers (wired and wireless models) can be configured using a variety of options,
some of which do not require any software installation on the host PC. The print server can be configured
and managed via an Ethernet or wireless connection using the ExtendView Utility (recommended), the
embedded web (HTTP) server pages, or the print server’s internal configuration console, which can be
accessed via a Telnet connection. If you choose to use the silex ExtendView Utility (provided on the
Print Server Installation CD), the software must be installed prior to use. Additional options for print
server configuration and management are available as third-party utilities that can be downloaded from
their respective web sites. If you are using a wireless print server, you can still configure it via an
Ethernet connection or optionally configure it via a wireless connection.

Configuring the Print Server via an Ethernet Connection
For Microsoft Windows operating systems, the ExtendView Utility (provided on the Print Server
Installation CD) is the recommended method of configuring one or more print servers on your network.
Once the print server obtains an IP address (occurs automatically when the unit is powered ON and
connected to a DHCP network), the ExtendView Utility’s auto-discovery feature will search for and
locate all print servers on the network and then display the IP address for each discovered print server.
For non-Windows operating systems such as Macintosh or Unix systems, a standard web browser (e.g.,
Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla) can be used to access the configuration settings of the print server
(refer to the next page, “Using the Web Browser Interface” instructions). No additional software is
required.
USING THE EXTENDVIEW UTILITY TO CONFIGURE THE PRINT SEVER (WINDOWS OPERATING SYSTEMS):
1.
Start the ExtendView Utility from the START Menu.
2.
When the Welcome screen appears, click on Next, choose any name for your View Name,
select Automatically create a view with default settings, and then click on Finish.
3.
Double-click on the print server that you want to use from the list. The default print server
name is SLXxxxxxx (where xxxxxx is the last six digits of the MAC address from the label located
on the back of the print server).
4.
If you are using TCP/IP (recommended for Windows) and you do not have a DHCP server
(see note below), you will need to manually assign a valid IP Address (if you are not sure what IP
address is valid, ask your network administrator), and then click on OK.
5.
Configure the 802.11b or 802.11g wireless settings (SX-215 wireless print server only). To
operate on a wireless network, you must select your country or region from the drop-down list. This
field designates the region of operation for which the wireless interface is intended. It may not be
legal to operate the print server in a country/region other than the country/region shown in the dropdown list. You must also set the wireless mode (ad-hoc or infrastructure), SSID channel, and WEP
encryption of the wireless print server to the same configuration as the wireless network you want the
print server to communicate on. All nodes of a wireless network need to have the same settings in
order to communicate with each other.
 wireless mode (ad-hoc or infrastructure)
 SSID channel
 wireless security settings
More information can be found in the Wireless Security Configuration Section at the end of this
manual.
NOTE: It may not be legal to operate the print server in a country or region other than the country or region shown in
the drop-down list. If your country or region is not listed, please check with your local government agency.
NOTE: If you are using DHCP on your network, the print server should have acquired valid IP settings at this point
and no further configuration is necessary. However, for most installations, a static IP address is preferred. If your
DHCP server does not allow the print server to keep its assigned IP address permanently, then you must manually
assign an IP address. In this case, use a static IP address outside the range reserved for DHCP (see your DHCP
server documentation for details). To assign a static IP address, right-click on the print server in the menu, and then
select Configuration. On the TCP/IP tab, under IP Address Resolution, select Set Permanent, and assign a valid
static IP address for your network. Click on OK to save the new settings.

USING THE WEB BROWSER INTERFACE TO CONFIGURE THE PRINT SERVER (NON-WINDOWS SYSTEMS):
To configure the print server using non-Windows operating systems (e.g., Unix systems), a standard web
browser (e.g., Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator) can be used to access the print server’s
embedded Web (HTTP) server pages, which contain the print server’s configuration options. No
additional software is required.
1.
Ensure your PC is connected and has access to your network.
2.
Connect an available Ethernet cable from your network hub to the print server. Ensure the print
server is powered ON.
3.
With your printer and print server switched on and ready, press the test button on the print server
to print a test page. The test page will display the current IP address assigned to the print server by
your network DHCP service. If your network does not use DHCP, then the print server will have the
default IP address of 192.0.0.192. In any case, your computer must use an IP address other than the
one used by the print server in order to establish a connection between the two devices.
4.
Configure the 802.11b or 802.11g wireless settings (SX-215 wireless print server only). To
operate on a wireless network, you must select your country or region from the drop-down list. This
field designates the region of operation for which the wireless interface is intended. It may not be
legal to operate the print server in a country/region other than the country/region shown in the dropdown list. You must also set the wireless mode (ad-hoc or infrastructure), SSID channel, and WEP
encryption of the wireless print server to the same configuration as the wireless network you want the
print server to communicate on. All nodes of a wireless network need to have the same settings in
order to communicate with each other.
5.
From the host computer, open a standard web browser (e.g., Microsoft Internet Explorer or
Netscape Navigator), enter the IP address of the print server into the address bar of the web browser,
and then press Enter. The Web Browser Utility will be displayed, allowing you to configure the print
server. The menu selections are displayed on the left side of the screen, and the individual settings
are located at the top of the screen. Use the browser’s Forward and Back buttons to navigate to the
sub pages where you can configure the print server’s settings.

Macintosh Print Queue Configuration
Silex Print Servers support the AppleTalk protocol running over Ethernet (also known as EtherTalk).
This capability allows Macintosh computers to print jobs to a printer simultaneously with jobs from
Windows, UNIX, NetWare, and other computers.
NOTE: silex Print Servers are also compatible with the Macintosh TCP/IP Printer option in the Print Center as long
as you have a valid IP Address configured (refer to the section “Configuring your print server”). Enter the IP
Address of the print server for the “Printer’s Address”, and make sure the “Use default queue on server” option is
checked, and select your correct “Printer Model”.
silex print server AppleTalk capabilities allow a printer to appear as a shareable printer node on an
AppleTalk Phase 2 network. The print server broadcasts information to Macintoshes on the network, and
automatically appears in the Print Center or Chooser of each Macintosh. Application programs (such as
Microsoft Word, Excel, PageMaker, etc.) can print without modification or special software on the
Macintosh.
MACINTOSH CONFIGURATION (OS 8.X AND 9.X):
Identify the printer to which the print server is connected, and install the printer driver.
1.
Verify that Ethernet is enabled from the Network Control Panel or AppleTalk Control Panel.
2.
At a Macintosh workstation, from the Apple menu, open the Chooser.
3.
If the Chooser window displays an AppleTalk zone list, select the necessary zone. Click on the
icon for the printer driver you are going to use. If you have a Postscript printer, you can use the
LaserWriter driver.
4.
Select the print server name (the default is SLXxxxxxx_P1_AT, where "xxxxxx" are the last six
digits of the Ethernet address.).
5.
Close the Chooser. You can now print to the printer using any standard Macintosh application
program.

Section 4 – Troubleshooting
Introduction
This section describes procedures for troubleshooting problems you may encounter with the print server,
and is divided into the following sections:

Installation Problems

Intermittent Problems

Protocol-Specific Troubleshooting
If you have followed the steps in this section and you believe that you have a defective print server, then
please refer to Section 5 – Where to Get Help for information on returning defective products.
Printing Problems
If you cannot print to the print server after you install it, check the following:

Make sure that the printer is powered on and is on-line, and that all cables are securely
plugged in.
If the printer initializes successfully but you cannot print, the problem could be one of the following:

There is a problem with the interface between the print server and the printer.

There is a problem with the network connection or cabling.

There is a queue setup problem, a print server setup problem, or other protocol-related
problem.
Checking the Interface between the Print Server and the Printer:
1.
2.
Ensure that the print server is securely plugged into the printer.
After the printer is powered ON, wait until the printer initializes, and then print a self-test page by
pushing the Test button on the back of the print server for approximately one second.
NOTE: Pushing the Test button for more than five seconds will restore the factory default configuration settings.

If the self-test does not print, then there is possibly a hardware problem. Double-check the
connections. If you still cannot print, then make sure that your printer is capable of printing text,
PCL or PostScript (the self-test will not work unless one of these is supported). The only way to
test such printers is to use an application program with the correct printer drivers.

The following are some examples of printers that do not support direct printing of text files:

Some Windows printers (usually low-end inkjet printers) perform all the image
rasterization in the printer driver, so the printer only understands a raw image file.


Many plotters only support HP-GL/2, RTL, or proprietary languages.
If you are getting distorted printouts, try printing using the generic/text printer driver.
Document #40181-420 Rev. B
27
User’s Guide
If the self-test page prints successfully but you cannot print a job or you get distorted printouts, make sure
the printer is set for the correct Page Description Language. Most new printers support AUTO mode,
which means that they will automatically switch between PCL and PostScript. However, older printers
like the LaserJet II, LaserJet III, and LaserJet IIISi require that the printer be set to the desired language
through the printer control panel. Also, verify that you have set up the drivers correctly on the
workstation. Some printers, like the Epson Stylus, require special drivers and will not print if standard
PCL or PostScript drivers are used.
Checking the Network Connection and Cabling:
If the self-test page prints but you cannot print documents, first check the network connection and
cabling.

If the appropriate LEDs are not on, there is probably a bad 10baseT or 100baseTX cable,
or the hub port is bad. If possible, try a different cable and hub port, or try connecting a different
device to the cable.

If you are using a hub, verify that the hub port is good by trying the print server on a
different port.

If you have a bridge or router located between the print server and the host computer,
make sure that the device is set up to allow the print server to send and receive data from the host.
For example, a bridge can be set up to only allow certain types of Ethernet addresses to pass
through (a process known as filtering); therefore, such a bridge must be configured to allow print
server addresses. Likewise, a router can be set up to pass only certain protocols, so be sure that
the desired protocol can be passed through to the print server. In the case of routers, also make
sure that the protocol is routable (LAT, NetBEUI, and DLC/LLC are not routable).

If the job exists in the queue but does not print, ensure that you are not trying to print a
text job to a PostScript printer. If you have a printer that is capable of automatic language
switching, ensure that the printer is not forced into PostScript mode.

Make sure that you are not trying to perform an illegal operation, such as attempting to
print a legal-size form when the printer only supports 8.5" x 11" paper.
Troubleshooting Windows Problems
If you are having trouble printing with Windows, ensure you can ping the print server using the DOS
command PING ipaddress, where ipaddress is the IP address of the print server. If you cannot ping
the print server, you will not be able to print.
Document #40181-420 Rev. B
28
User’s Guide
Troubleshooting Network Configuration Problems

If you are using TCP/IP, make sure that your computer and the print server are on the
same IP segment or can reach each other with a PING command from the host. The IP address
you assign to the print server must be on the same logical network as your host computers (e.g., if
your computer has an IP address of 192.189.207.3, the print server should have an IP of
192.189.207.x, where x is an integer between 1 and 254), or you must properly configure your
router address to work with the print server.

If your print server is set to Auto or DHCP for obtaining an IP address, it is possible that
the print server’s IP address can change. Either configure your DHCP server to give the print
server a permanent lease, or configure the print server to be on a STATIC address outside the
scope of DHCP addresses.

The problem may be the result of mismatched or duplicate IP addresses. Verify that the
IP address is correctly loaded into the print server (via the self-test page or through the remote
console) and make sure that no other nodes on the network have this address (duplicate addresses
are the biggest cause of TCP/IP printing problems). If the address is not correct, then verify that
the loading procedure was properly executed.

Also verify that the host computer and the print server are either on the same subnet (for
example, if the print server has a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, the host must have the same
subnet mask) or that the router is properly configured to pass data between the two devices.

If the wrong IP address is loaded, check your network for file servers that have DHCP,
BOOTP, or rarp enabled, and make sure that these file servers are not set up to load IP addresses
into the print server.

Troubleshooting Wireless Configuration Problems

Make sure your computer’s wireless adapter and/or access point is configured properly
and note the settings, paying special attention to the wireless mode, SSID or network name, WEP
or security, and IP address settings so you can configure your print server to the same wireless
settings.

Make sure the radio mode is configured properly for 802.11g if auto mode is not
connecting properly.

Make sure you have a good wireless signal from your PC and from the print server, that
the print server is within range (90 meters or 300 feet), and that it is away from metal objects and
other devices that generate radio signals (like Bluetooth, Cordless Phones, and Microwave
ovens).

Make sure your computer is set to infrastructure mode if you are connecting through an
access point, or ad-hoc (802.11) if you are connecting to the print server without an access point.
See the documentation for your wireless adapter for details.

If you want to use WEP encryption or password protection for your wireless network,
and your wireless adapter or access point normally uses a password or passphrase instead of
WEP, it should allow you to enter 0x followed by a ten digit (for 40-bit or 64-bit WEP) or
twenty-six digit (for 128-bit WEP) key in hexadecimal format (0-9 or A-F).

If you are using ad-hoc (peer to peer) mode and are experiencing slow performance or are
having intermittent problems connecting, try changing the RF channel of your wireless network.
Refer to your wireless adapter and/or access point documentation for more information. It is
recommended that you change the RF channel to at least three channels lower or higher than any
other wireless networks within range. The RF channel can be changed via the ExtendView
Utility or the Web Browser Configuration Utility for the print server.

Command console access information
silex servers support a sophisticated command-line oriented console for configuration and management. The console
includes some features that are not available through other configuration methods. The console can be accessed via
TELNET, the server’s serial port (if applicable), or through the ADMIN web page using the web browser interface.
The general configuration procedure is the same regardless of which method is used. This document describes the
console commands available from the command console for silex servers. All commands may not be applicable
towards your product.
The general configuration procedure is the same, regardless of which method is used.
Telnet Command Console Access
To connect to the print server using TELNET on UNIX, Windows, or most other TCP/IP systems, type the
following command at the command prompt:
TELNET ipaddress
Where ipaddress is the IP address of the silex server. When you are connected, press RETURN or ENTER to get the
"#" prompt, enter the password (ACESS is the default, it will not echo on your screen as you type), Hit ENTER
until you get the Local> prompt. You are now ready to enter commands.
Serial Port Command Console Access

Wireless Security Configuration
silex products support various methods of authentication and encryption to ensure compatibility with
wireless security depoyments. This document describes how to configure wireless security on silex print
servers and device servers.
silex offers a variety of ways to configure the security parameters, including the ExtendView utility for
Windows systems, a built-in web browser interface, and a command line console (described at the end of
this document).
ExtendView
Note: You must be using ExtendView version 2.4 or later in order to configure wireless security settings.
Install the ExtendView utility (found on the installation CD or at www.silexamerica.com). Select the
product you want to configure from the list, click Server, and then Configuration and follow these steps for
configuration:
1. Click on the Wireless tab.
2. Select Infrastructure for the Wireless mode and type in the correct SSID.
3. Click Configure Wireless Security.
Web Browser Interface
Open any web browser from your PC (eg: Internet Explorer or Firefox) and type the IP Address of the
print server for the Address. Click Login from the main menu in the left frame, and type in the password
(default is ACCESS) and follow these steps for configuration:
1. Click on Wireless from the main menu in the left frame.
2. Select Infrastructure for the Wireless mode and type in the correct SSID.
3. Click Submit.
4. On the Configure Wireless screen, click on Configure Network Security.
Web Browser Interface and ExtendView Security Configuration
You should now be able to enter the security settings whether you are in ExtendView or the web browser
interface. See below for detail on each field in the form. Help is also available within the ExtendView utility
or the web browser. If you are using ExtendView, click OK when you are done for the settings to take
effect. If you are using the web browser interface, click submit when you are done, and click the link in the
lower right frame to reset it and have the settings take effect.
Encryption Mode
Select the desired encryption mode for the wireless link:
•
64 and 128 bit WEP are for basic security compatibility
•
Dynamic WEP is displayed if an EAP (802.1x) method which automatically sets keys is selected
as the authentication type.
•
WPA uses TKIP encryption.
•
WPA2 uses CCMP encryption.
Document #40181-420 Rev. B
79
User’s Guide
•
WPA2-WPA uses CCMP for pair-wise encryption, but allows TKIP for group encryption.
Key Selection
If WEP encryption is selected, and the authentication mode is not an EAP (802.1x) mode, select the
desired WEP key to be used, one through four.
WEP Key
These fields are ignored unless the encryption mode is 64 or 128 bit WEP. Enter up to 10 hexadecimal
digits for 64 bit WEP, or 26 hexadecimal digits for 128 bit WEP.
Authentication Type
Choose type of authentication to be performed with the network access point, or with a peer unit in Adhoc mode.
User ID
Enter the logon user ID that the server uses to authenticate to the 802.1x-enabled network. The user ID
and password must be in the authentication server database, and is used in TTLS, LEAP, and PEAP
configurations. The default user ID is 'anonymous'. A realm defines a grouping of users. If a realm is
required for your network, it is separated from the user ID by a '@' character. Realms make it easier to
segregate user groups into independently administered databases, to apply policies on a user group
basis, and to establish roaming agreements to name a few applications. The default realm if not specified
is 'anonymous'. Realm is used with TTLS configurations, and sometimes with PEAP.
Password
Enter the logon password that the server uses to authenticate to the 802.1x enabled network. The user ID
and password must be in the authentication server database, and is used in TTLS, LEAP, and PEAP
configurations. The password may be a text string, or a string of hex bytes prefixed with '\x'. The default
password is 'anonymous'.
Certificate Common Name
Enter the name of the certificate on the primary authentication server. If both of the
common names are set to null, all certificates are accepted. The default is null. Certificate common name
is used in TTLS and PEAP configurations.
Certificate Root Key
Enter the authentication key used to verify the root certificate in the certificate chain provided by the
authentication server. To set to null, leave this field blank. Certificate Root Key is used in TTLS and PEAP
configurations. The Certificate Root Key can be extracted by clicking Browse and selecting the actual
certificate if you don’t want to type it in manually.
Certificate Root Key Exponent
This value must match the authentication server certificate value. The default is 65537 (x10001).
Certificate Root Key Exponent is used in TTLS and PEAP configurations. The Certificate Root Key
Exponent can be extracted by clicking Browse and selecting the actual certificate if you don’t want to type
it in manually.
Authentication Protocol
This field determines how the server authenticates itself to the 802.1x enabled network after an 802.1x
session is established. The default is PAP. Sometimes referred to as inner-authentication protocol, it is
used in TTLS and PEAP configurations.
Pre-Shared Key
If the PSK mode of authentication is selected with WPA (TKIP) or WPA2 (CCMP) encryption, the key
value or pass-phrase entered here is used to initialize the session with the access point. If a key value is
entered, it must be exactly 64 hex characters. A pass-phrase must be 8 to 63 displayable characters.
Document #40181-420 Rev. B

User’s Guide
WPA Group Key
If the WPA Group Key mode is enabled, then group keys may be used for data link encryption.
The default is disabled.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------Command Line Console Configuration
Go to the command prompt on your PC and type TELNET ipaddress (where ipaddress is the IP Address
configured in the print server). You should get a # prompt, type in the password (default is ACCESS, this
will not echo on your screen as you type it). Hit Enter a couple times until you get a Local> prompt. This is
where you can type your commands. Type HELP to get a list of commands.
The following console commands can be used to configure your network security settings:
