Important Information for Windows
If you are using Windows ® 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT® 4.0, you need to turn off your
EPSON® printer software’s monitoring utility (Status Monitor) before you use the printer. The
EPSON Status Monitor was created for printing locally and cannot monitor your printer over a
network. If you don’t turn off monitoring, you will see error messages when you try to print.
If you are using the AXIS ® 1440 Print Server with the EPSON Stylus® COLOR 760, EPSON
Stylus COLOR 860, EPSON Stylus COLOR 1160, EPSON Stylus Photo 870, or EPSON
Stylus Photo 1270, follow the steps under, “Disabling Monitoring for EPSON Status Monitor 3”
(page 2). For all other printers, follow the steps in the section below.
Note:
AXIS includes software for monitoring the printer over the network. For details, see your
❏
AXIS 1440 Print Server User’s Manual.
When you are installing drivers for the EPSON Stylus Photo 870 or the EPSON Stylus Photo
1270, the Printer Utility tries to automatically detect your printer port. You may see the
following screen:
If you see this screen, click Cancel and configure your port for the AXIS 1440 manually, as
described in the AXIS 1440 Print Server Installation Guide.

Features and Benefits
Reliability
The AXIS 1440 Print Server provides high performance and reliability
combined with low power consumption. The electronic circuits are
based on the AXIS ETRAX chip, which is made up of an integrated
32 bit RISC processor and associated network controllers.
Flexibility
It supports printing in several operating systems and environments,
including NetWare, Windows, OS/2, UNIX, Macintosh and
TCP/IP.
Speed
The AXIS ETRAX chip, which is specifically designed for LAN
products, provides users with faster transmission than a direct PC-toprinter connection. It has a sustained data transmission of up to
450 Kb per second.
Easy to Install
If you have a NetWare network or network supporting
NetBIOS/NetBEUI, you can install and configure the AXIS 1440 in
minutes using AXIS NetPilot.
Security
Monitoring
You can assign passwords to restrict both login and printer access.
The AXIS NetPilot software and the internal AXIS 1440 web pages
allow you to continuously monitor printer status.
The AXIS Print Monitor for Windows 95/98 and Windows NT
displays pop-up messages showing the status of peer-to-peer print jobs.
8
Futureproof
Because you can upgrade AXIS 1440 flash memory over the network,
you can take advantage of new print server software as soon as it
becomes available. All software upgrades are free of charge.

22
AXIS 1440 User’s Manual
Section 3: Installing and Configuring the Print Server
Configuring the Print Server for TCP/IP
Before the AXIS 1440 can communicate on a TCP/IP network, you
must assign it an Internet (IP) address.
Methods for
downloading the
Internet Address
You can use DHCP, ARP, RARP or BOOTP to set the Internet
address. All methods are enabled. If you want to disable any of these
methods, you can do so when installing the AXIS 1440 using the
AXIS NetPilot Installation Wizard. (See Configuring the Print Server
Using AXIS NetPilot on page 20.)
You can also set the Internet address manually using the AXIS
NetPilot Installation Wizard.
The following list describes these methods:
DHCP
ARP
RARP
AXIS 1440 User’s Manual
Available in Windows NT and UNIX systems, DHCP provides
automatic but temporary assignment of Internet addresses from a
central pool. DHCP causes the host computer to automatically
allocate and download an unused Internet address to the requesting
print server. It also provides validation data that defines how long the
Internet address will remain valid. To benefit fully from this method,
the AXIS 1440 also supports the WINS host name resolution
protocol, which is available in Windows NT networks.
Available in UNIX, Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows NT,
ARP is an easy method to download Internet addresses to individual
print servers. It is not appropriate to use this method over routers.
Available in UNIX, RARP automatically downloads the Internet
address to each device. It requires an RARP daemon on your system,
and only operates within a single network segment. A request made to
an active RARP daemon initiates a search of the Ethernet Address
Table for an entry matching the print server’s Ethernet address. If a
matching entry is found, the daemon downloads the Internet address
to the print server.
23
Section 3: Installing and Configuring the Print Server
BOOTP
Available in UNIX and similar to RARP (although it can operate on
the entire network) BOOTP requires a BOOTP daemon on your
system. A request made to an active BOOTP daemon initiates a search
of the Boot Table for an entry matching the print server’s Ethernet
address. If a matching entry is found, the daemon then downloads the
Internet address to the print server.
Before you start
System privileges
You need root privileges on your UNIX system, or administrator
privileges on a Windows NT server.
Ethernet address
You need to know the Ethernet address of your AXIS 1440 to perform
the installation. The Ethernet address is based on the serial number of
your AXIS 1440. For example, an AXIS 1440 with a serial number of
00408C100086 has a corresponding Ethernet address of 00 40 8C 10
00 86. Your print server’s serial number is located on the bottom of
the unit.
Internet address
Unless you are downloading the Internet address using DHCP, you
must obtain an unused Internet address from your network
administrator.
Important:
24
❏ DO NOT use the Internet address presented in the examples in
this section when installing your AXIS 1440. Always consult your
network administrator before assigning an Internet address.
AXIS 1440 User’s Manual
Section 3: Installing and Configuring the Print Server
Assigning a
Host Name to the
Internet Address
If you are using host names, you can map a unique host name to the
acquired Internet address. Refer to your system manuals or to your
network administrator for instructions on how name mapping is
performed on your system.
The AXIS 1440 supports WINS (Windows Internet Name Service),
which is recommended when you are using DHCP in a Windows NT
network to set the Internet address.
Note:
Using DHCP in
Windows
❏ If a host name has not been mapped to the Internet address, you
can still download the Internet address to your AXIS 1440 using
the steps described in Using DHCP in Windows below. Just
replace the host name entries with the Internet address wherever
necessary.
Follow these steps to use DHCP to download the Internet address:
1. Edit or create a scope in the DHCP manager of the DHCP
daemon. The entries included in this scope should contain the
following parameters:
•
range of Internet addresses
•
subnet mask
•
default router Internet address
•
WINS server Internet address(es)
•
lease duration
2. Activate the scope.
The AXIS 1440 automatically downloads the DHCP parameters.
If you intend to use WINS, at least one WINS server Internet address
must be included in the DHCP scope. Immediately after the Internet
address is received, the AXIS 1440 registers its host name and Internet
address on the WINS server.
AXIS 1440 User’s Manual
25
Section 3: Installing and Configuring the Print Server
The AXIS 1440 can automatically download a customized config file
from a TFTP server. Just add the name of the config file and the
TFTP server’s Internet address to your DHCP scope. The config file is
downloaded immediately after the AXIS 1440 receives its Internet
address.
Note:
Using ARP in
Windows 95/98 and
Windows NT
❏ You don’t have to restart the AXIS 1440 to download the Internet
address.
If you’re running Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows NT, you
can use ARP to set the Internet address.
Follow these steps:
1. Start a DOS window.
2. Type the following commands:
arp -s <Internet address> <Ethernet address>
ping <Internet address>
arp -d <Internet address>
Example:
arp -s 192.168.3.191 00-40-8c-10-00-86
ping 192.168.3.191
arp -d 192.168.3.191
The host returns a message similar to the following: Reply from
192.168.3.191.... This indicates that the address has been set
and communication is established.
Notes:
26
❏ When using the Windows 95 implementation of ARP, you must
first ping an existing unit on your network before setting the
Internet address of your AXIS 1440. (Use arp-a to verify that you
have an empty ARP table first.)
AXIS 1440 User’s Manual
Section 3: Installing and Configuring the Print Server
❏ When you execute the ping command for the first time, you will
experience a significantly longer response time than usual.
❏ It’s best to use the arp -d command so that the Internet to
Ethernet address information is stored as a dynamic parameter in
the host’s cache memory. If you don’t use arp-d, mapping is static
and permanently installed on the host.
Using ARP in UNIX
You can also use ARP to download the Internet address in a UNIX
environment.
Type the following commands:
arp -s <host name> <Ethernet address> temp
ping <host name>
Example
arp -s npsname 00:40:8c:10:00:86 temp
ping npsname
The host returns a message similar to the following: npsname is
alive. This indicates that the address has been set and
communication is established.
Notes:
❏ The ARP command can vary between different UNIX systems.
Some BSD type systems expect the host name and the node
address in reverse order. Also, IBM AIX systems require the
additional argument ether. For example:
arp -s ether npsname 00:40:8c:10:00:86 temp
❏ When you execute the ping command for the first time, you may
experience a significantly longer response time than usual.
AXIS 1440 User’s Manual

Section 3: Installing and Configuring the Print Server
Using RARP in UNIX
Follow these steps to set the Internet address using RARP:
1. Append the following line to your Ethernet Address table. This is
typically performed using the command /etc/ethers:
<Ethernet address> <host name>
Example
00:40:8c:10:00:86 npsname
2. If necessary, update your host table and alias name databases, as
required by your system.
3. If it is not already running, start the RARP daemon. This is
typically performed using the command rarpd -a
4. Restart the AXIS 1440 to download the Internet address.
28
AXIS 1440 User’s Manual
Section 3: Installing and Configuring the Print Server
Using BOOTP in UNIX
Follow these steps to set the Internet address using BOOTP:
1. Append the following entry to your boot table. This is typically
performed by editing the file: /etc/bootptab
<host name>:ht=<hardware type>:vm=<vendor magic>:\
:ha=<hardware address>:ip=<Internet address>:\
:sm=<subnet mask>:gw=<gateway field>
Example:
npsname:ht=ether:vm=rfc1048:\
:ha=00408c100086:ip=192.168.3.191:\
:sm=255.255.255.0:gw=192.168.1.1
Notes:
❏ Enter the ht and vm fields exactly as shown.
❏ The ha field is the Ethernet address and the ip field is the Internet
address of your AXIS 1440.
❏ The gw and sm fields correspond to the default router address and
subnet mask (DEF_ROUT and NET_MASK).
2. If necessary, update your host table and alias name databases as
required by your system.
3. If it is not already running, start the BOOTP daemon. This is
typically performed using the bootpd command.
4. Restart the AXIS 1440 to download the Internet address, default
router address and subnet mask.
The AXIS 1440 can automatically download a customized config file
from a TFTP server. Just add the name of the config file and the
Internet address of the TFTP server to your boot table. The config file
is downloaded immediately after the AXIS 1440 receives its Internet
address.

About
AXIS Print Utility
for Windows
AXIS Print Utility for Windows does the following:
•
Configures workstation printer ports to use the AXIS 1440.
•
Captures and monitors print jobs directed to the AXIS 1440 port,
and notifies you of problems. Print jobs are directed through a
spool directory either at your local hard disk (peer-to-peer mode),
or at the file server (client-server mode).
For more information about AXIS Print Utility for Windows, see the
on-line help.
Notes:
❏ Microsoft Network protocols (NetBIOS/NetBEUI) must be
running when using AXIS Print Utility for Windows.
❏ You can use AXIS NetPilot or the internal web pages to change
the default name or default parameters of the AXIS 1440. See

Section 5: Setting Up Windows Workstations
Peer-to-Peer vs.
Client-Server Printing
Windows for Workgroups and Windows 3.1 users printing to a
network printer in peer-to-peer mode need to install the AXIS Print
Utility for Windows software on their workstations. Users can then
add the network printer to their systems and use the printer as if it
were connected directly to their workstations.
Peer-to-peer printing has the following advantages:
•
You can monitor the printer status at all times and be notified
when a print job is complete.
•
You don’t have to rely on a server.
Client-server printing requires that only one user install the AXIS
Print Utility for Windows software on his workstation. This user then
adds the printer to his or her workstation (the server) and shares the
printer with other users on the network. Client workstations use
Windows Print Manager to connect to the printer.
Client-server mode provides a way of maintaining queue ordering and
job priority. It has the following disadvantages:
Notes:
•
You cannot receive printer status or print job notification.
•
The workstation set up as the server must be available at all times.
It must also have the capacity to handle the print jobs that pass
through it.
❏ Client workstations in a client-server environment can still choose
to install AXIS Print Utility for Windows and print directly to the
network printer in peer-to-peer mode.
❏ The server workstation should be running Windows for
Workgroups.
Windows 3.1
42
You must have network software, such as IBM LAN Server or LAN
Manager Workstation, installed before you can print to a network
printer from a Windows 3.1 workstation. If this software is already
installed, proceed as described in Windows for Workgroups below.

69
Section 9: Management and Configuration
Using SNMP
You can use SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) for
remote monitoring and configuration of the AXIS 1440. All major
functions applicable to print servers are supported.
General Information
SNMP refers to a set of standards for network management, including
a protocol, a database structure specification, and a set of data objects.
The AXIS 1440 SNMP implementation runs in the TCP/IP
environment.
Management is handled by NMS (Network Management System)
software running on a host on your network. The NMS software
communicates with network devices by messages, which are references
to one or more objects.
A message can be a question or an instruction to a device, or an alarm
triggered by a specific event in a device. Objects are contained in data
bases called MIBs (Management Information Base), where MIB-II is a
standard database.
The AXIS 1440 supports all relevant parts of MIB-II. It also includes a
private enterprise MIB. See The AXIS MIB on page 71.
70
AXIS 1440 User’s Manual
Section 9: Management and Configuration
System Requirements
for SNMP
To use AXIS 1440 SNMP support, you must have the following:
•
A host that supports FTP on which to run the NMS software.
•
A version of NMS software that allows you to install private
enterprise MIBs.
Follow these steps to add the AXIS MIB to your NMS software:
1. Log in to the AXIS 1440 using FTP.
2. Upload the MIB file /snmp/axis.mib to the NMS host.
3. Install the AXIS MIB. (See the instructions in your NMS software
documentation.)
The AXIS MIB
The AXIS MIB contains a large number of objects that can be
categorized as follows:
•
Menu objects - used for viewing and changing the AXIS 1440
configuration from the NMS program. See Appendix B - The
Parameter List for information about parameters.
•
Printer status and unit administration objects - used for
monitoring AXIS 1440 print jobs and storing parameter changes.
•
Trap objects - used for alarms associated with error conditions.
For technical details, you can view the MIB file (axis.mib) with any
text editor.

You can upgrade the AXIS 1440 flash memory using either of the
following:
•
AXIS NetPilot (for networks supporting IPX/SPX).
•
FTP (for networks supporting TCP/IP).
Contact your EPSON dealer if the above methods fail, or call EPSON
at (310) 782-2600 (U.S.) or (905) 709-9475 (Canada) 6 AM to 6 PM,
Pacific Time, Monday through Friday. The AXIS NetPilot and FTP
upgrade procedures are described on the following pages.

through the necessary procedures. Just click the Upgrade icon on the
AXIS NetPilot toolbar to display the Upgrade Wizard menu.
To ensure that the upgrade goes smoothly, put the file with the new
software in the Upgrade folder. This folder, which was created when
AXIS NetPilot was installed, resides in the same folder as AXIS
NetPilot.
Upgrading Over the
Network Using FTP
To upgrade over the network using FTP, you need the file with the
new print server software. The name of this file is in the form
product_version.bin, (for example, 1440_551.bin for software
release 5.51). You can obtain this file from the EPSON Home Page or
FTP site on the Internet.
The AXIS 1440 must be installed and configured for TCP/IP as
described in Configuring the Print Server for TCP/IP on page 23.
