Introduction
Your C82362*, C82363*, or C82364* EPSON Type B Ethernet Interface
Card lets you connect your EPSON printer directly to your network.
The Ethernet card supports IEEE 802.2, IEEE 802.3, Ethernet II, and
Ethernet SNAP network frame types, and automatically selects the
correct interface when it connects to the network. Thus, you can print
using networks in the following environments:
❑
Microsoft ® Windows®
❑
Apple® Macintosh®
❑
UNIX
❑
IBM ® OS/2
The EPSON Net!2 software lets you quickly and easily configure the
interface card to use the following protocols:
❑
Novell® NetWare®
❑
Microsoft IPX/SPX
❑
Microsoft TCP/IP
❑
EtherTalk ®
❑
NetBEUI and TCP/IP for OS/2 Warp ® and Warp Connect
Note:
❑ This manual is written for network administrators, and many of the
steps included here require detailed network knowledge and
administrator rights. The term“Administrator” is synonymous with
“supervisor” in this manual.
❑
The C82363* and C82364* Ethernet cards do not support Level 1
printers.
❑
The protocols that the Ethernet card can use may vary depending on the
operating systems used and network configuration.
See page 8 for an overview of installation steps.

Environments for EPSON Status Monitor 2
The protocols that must be installed to run EPSON Status Monitor 2
vary depending on your operating system and printer type. The
following table divides printers into three categories:
❑
LPR printers, which use TCP/IP
❑
NetWare printers, which use Novell’s IPX/SPX protocol in a
NetWare environment
❑
Windows shared printers
Use the following table to determine which protocols are needed for
your operating system and printer type.

EPSON 1 = EPSON TCP/IP Printing protocol
LPR 2 = Windows NT LPR protocol
Note:
❑ LPR printers use LPR over TCP/IP as their communication protocol
suite, and you must install both protocols to use the Status Monitor to
monitor an LPR printer. See Chapter 3 for instructions on installing
TCP/IP.
❑
NetWare printer protocols are already installed in your NetWare
network. If you have a NetWare printer, see “Installing EPSON Status
Monitor 2” in Chapter 11. For an explanation of NetWare printer
protocols, see your NetWare documentation.
❑
Windows 95 and Windows 98 do not come with LPR, so in addition to
installing TCP/IP you need to install the EPSON TCP/IP printer
protocol. The Status Monitor installer program automatically prompts
you when to install EPSON TCP/IP. See “Installing EPSON Status
Monitor 2” in Chapter 11 for instructions.

Setting the IP Address Using the arp Command
If you are using UNIX, OS/2, or peer-to-peer networking in Windows
(95, 98, or NT), you can use the address resolution protocol (arp)
command to set the IP address of the Ethernet card, and the ping
command to check that you have set it correctly.
Before you start, you will need the following information:
❑
A valid IP address to assign the Ethernet card. Use an address
within your subnet that does not conflict with any other
device.
❑
The MAC (Media Access Control) address (hardware serial
number) of the Ethernet card. Press the status sheet button for
about three seconds while the printer is on to print a status
sheet that includes the MAC address.
❑
If the host from which you set up the Ethernet card is on a
different LAN segment, make sure that the gateway to the
Ethernet card (router or routing host) is correctly configured
on your machine.
Checking that the LAN can see the Ethernet card
Check that the Ethernet card can be reached from the host.
If you have already set the IP address of the Ethernet card to some
value other than the factory default, skip step 1.
1.
Re-initialize the Ethernet card by turning off the printer, waiting
at least 10 seconds, and then turning on the printer again while
holding down the status sheet button for about three seconds.
2.
Check that the card is reachable by pinging it from the command
line.
For example, using the default IP address of the Ethernet card
(11.22.33.44), type:
ping 11.22.33.44
3-8
Setting the IP Address
Chap3.fm Page 9 Friday, August 21, 1998 11:11 AM
3.
If the card is reachable, you see results like the following (the
exact form of the message depends on your operating system,
and the times may vary):
Reply from 11.22.33.44: bytes=32 time=19ms TTL=32
Reply from 11.22.33.44: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=32
Reply from 11.22.33.44: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=32
Reply from 11.22.33.44: bytes=32 time<10ms TTL=32
If you can’t ping the Ethernet card, make sure:
❑
The address is correct in the ping command.
❑
The Ethernet card is operating normally (red LED off, green
LED on).
❑
The Ethernet connection to the card and to the host has
been made correctly, and all hubs, routers, etc. are switched
on. If you are using 10Base-2, make sure that both ends of
the segment are terminated.
Setting and checking the new IP address
To set the new IP address, use the address resolution protocol (arp).
Note:
In the following example, the MAC address of the Ethernet card is
00:00:48:93:00:00 (hexadecimal), and the IP address you will assign is
192.135.223.6 (decimal). Substitute your values for these addresses when
you type in the commands.
Setting the IP Address
3-9
Chap3.fm Page 10 Friday, August 21, 1998 11:11 AM
1.
From the command line, type: arp -s [IP address] [MAC address]
Example: arp -s 192.135.223.6 00-00-48-93-00-00
Note:
Although the MAC address is displayed with colons on the Status Sheet
(00:00:48:93:00:00), you must enter the MAC address separated by
hyphens (00-00-48-93-00-00) in a DOS window under Windows 95
and Windows 98. For other operating systems, use colons
(00:00:48:93:00:00).
2.
Ping the new IP address.
Example: ping 192.135.223.6
Note:
Do not skip this step, as the ping “locks in” the new address.
3.
The Ethernet card should now respond to the ping. If it doesn’t,
double-check the IP address and the MAC address that you
entererd with the arp -s command and try again. If that fails,
re-initialize the Ethernet card and try again.
Note:
You cannot change the subnet mask or gateway setting of the Ethernet
card using the arp command. Use EPSON Net!2 running on Windows
(95, 98, or NT), or Macintosh to change these parameters.
Setting the IP Address Using EPSON Net!2 for
Windows/Macintosh
You can set the IP address for the Ethernet card using EPSON Net!2
in Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows NT with TCP/IP or IPX.
You can also set the IP address for the Ethernet card using
EPSON Net!2 in Macintosh with TCP/IP or AppleTalk.
c
3-10
Caution:
Once you make changes to the Ethernet card, you must wait until
the changes have been completely set before turning off or sending
data to the printer.
Setting the IP Address
Chap3.fm Page 11 Friday, August 21, 1998 11:11 AM
Note:
When using TCP/IP, EPSON Net!2 shows the Ethernet card information
for the same segment by default. To see the Ethernet card information for the
other segments, see “Getting information about other network segments”
on page 3-13.
Here is an example of setting the IP address using EPSON Net!2,

Chap3.fm Page 13 Friday, August 21, 1998 11:11 AM
Note:
❑ If you will be configuring the Ethernet card using the card’s home
page, you must assign an IP address manually here.
7.
❑
The default IP address is 11.22.33.44. If you configure the
Ethernet card using the card’s home page, you must change the
default IP address.
❑
If a server or router acts as a gateway, type the gateway address. If
there is no gateway, type the IP address of your computer.
Click OK to save the new settings. The update is complete when
the message “Configuration is successfully done” appears.

Gives you the ability to register up to 32 print queues.
Remote Printer mode:
❑
Does not require a NetWare user account.
❑
Requires a print server to control the remote printer.
❑
Prints slower than in Print Server mode.
❑
Gives you the ability to attach up to 16 printers for NetWare
3.1x, and up to 255 for NetWare 4.1x.
Note:
When you turn on the printer in Remote Printer mode, the user account
is temporarily used. If there is no disk space in the user account, turn

context from that of a bindery client, use SET BINDERY
CONTEXT command to set the context in the
AUTOEXEC.NCF file.
See your Netware 4.1x manual for more information.
IPX routing protocol NLSP
It is possible to use the IPX routing protocol NLSP in
NetWare4.1x; however, the Ethernet card does not support
NLSP. RIP/SAP controls the communication.
You can select NLSP with RIP/SAP Compatibility or RIP/SAP
Only. If you arbitrarily remove the RIP or SAP binding when
NLSP with RIP/SAP Compatibility is specified, the Ethernet card
is not able to communicate with the file server and NDS.
(Reference: “Protocols” and “Bindings” in the menu items of the
Utility INETCFG.)
Time required to recognize the Ethernet card
It takes up to two minutes for the NetWare server to recognize
the Ethernet card after the printer is turned on. During this startup time, EPSON Net!2 and the status sheet do not show the
correct information.

Using a Dial-Up Network
This section covers important information about using a dial-up
network.
Note:
The primary server described in this manual is a primary time server, which
offers time to the workstations on the network.
Using a dial-up network in each mode
Print Server mode
Since polling is performed on the file server in print server
mode, you must use a dedicated dial-up line.
Remote Printer mode
In Remote Printer mode, the primary server can be located
at the dial-up destination. However, an extra account might
be generated when the primary server is down. To avoid this
problem, use connections via a dedicated dial-up line.

Using the Ethernet Card with NetWare
Chap4.fm Page 39 Friday, August 21, 1998 1:05 PM
Using a print server at a dial-up destination (remote)
❏
When the power is turned on
The computer dials out because access is made to a local file
server first and then to a primary server. There is no problem
since this occurs only once at power on.
❏
When the Ethernet card is not set up correctly
The computer dials out because access is made to a local file
server first and then to a primary server. It dials out repeatedly
at intervals of approximately 5 minutes. Use the correct Ethernet
card settings to avoid this phenomenon.
❏
During normal operation (standby)
An SPX Watchdog packet is sent according to the NetWare
protocol convention. Use a router with a vicarious response
function to avoid dialing out unintentionally.
❏
During normal operation (printing)
The computer dials out while the print data is being transferred.
❏
When the primary server is down during printer operation
The computer dials out because connection to the primary server
is attempted periodically. Since this is attributable to the
automatic re-connection function, turn off the printer until the
primary server is restored.

4-39
Chap4.fm Page 40 Friday, August 21, 1998 1:05 PM
❏
When the file server on the local network is down
NetWare cannot be used on the local network without a file
server. In this case, the NetWare protocol that the Ethernet card
uses is unavailable. The computer does not dial out under this
condition. When the file server on the local network is restored,
the Ethernet card is also automatically restored.
When the local network has a primary server
Even if a primary server is installed on the local network, the
computer may unnecessarily dial out depending on the
configuration.
The following problems are common to the both Print Server mode
and Remote Printer mode.
❏
When the power is turned on
Since access is made only to the primary server, the computer
does not dial out.
❏
When the Ethernet card is not set up correctly
Since access is made only to the primary server, the computer
does not dial out. However, if the file server/print server of the
remote network is erroneously set as the primary server, the
computer may dial out. Correct the setting error to avoid this
problem.

❏
During normal operation (standby)
Since access is made only to the primary server, the computer
does not dial out.
❏
During normal operation (printing)
Since access is made only to the primary server, the computer
does not dial out.
❏
When the primary server is down during operation
Connection to the primary server is periodically attempted,
but the computer does not dial out. However, if the router is set
to pass SAP packets (Find Nearest Server), it may dial out
unnecessarily. To avoid this, turn off the printer, or do not allow
the router to pass SAP packets.

Using the Ethernet Card with UNIX
This chapter explains how to set up the printer for different UNIX
systems using the lpr command.
The Ethernet card supports many standard UNIX commands and can
be configured from a host computer without using a special setup
utility.
The Ethernet card is able to function as a remote printer on systems
using TCP/IP Ethernet transfer with lpr remote printing protocol, or
standard ftp (file transfer protocol).
Note:
Because this Ethernet card does not convert data into the printer control
language, a printer driver and filter are necessary for each system.
Setting Up Different UNIX Systems Using the lpr
Command
The following UNIX systems can print using the standard lpr
command:
SunSoft Solaris 2.4 or later
SunOS 4.1.4 or later
IBM AIX 3.2.5 or later and 4.1.3 or later
HP-UX 9.05 or later
SCO UNIX 4.2 or later

Time-out time:
Use this to set the time-out for communication with the Ethernet
card(s). You can choose a value between 3 and 99 seconds. (The
default value is 15 seconds.)
Note:
When the network is large and many Ethernet cards are used, a longer

c
Caution:
Set the smallest value necessary for the number of hops. If you
set a large number of hops, many search packets are generated,
causing excess network traffic. If you use a dial-up router,
account faults may be caused by passing search packets through
the line.

Tips for Using EPSON Status Monitor 2
Controlling the packet traffic on the network
The computer with EPSON Status Monitor 2 communicates with the
printer across the network. If there are many monitoring computers
and printers to be monitored, packet traffic increases and may slow
down the network. Limit the number of monitoring computers and
printers to be monitored to control network traffic.
It is a good idea to designate a single printer administrator who can
monitor all printers on the network and allow others to monitor only
the printer that they usually use. This is one way to decrease network
traffic.
The monitoring interval also affects the network traffic. Make the
interval longer for printers at a great distance on the network.
Monitoring printers beyond routers
When you monitor NetWare printers located beyond dial-up routers
in the wide area network, you are likely to be charged because of the
line connection. Consider the network configuration and set hops
carefully on NetWare networks.
If you set one or more hops for the NetWare network, the search
packet travels beyond the router. Even if there are no printers to be
monitored beyond dial-up routers, it is likely that the dial-up line will
be used and you will be charged more than you expect. If you do not
monitor printers beyond routers, set the number of hops to 0 during
installation. To reset the number of hops, reinstall the Status Monitor.
