Introduction
The C82362✽ EpsonNet 10 Base 2/T Internal Print Server and
C82363✽/C82364✽ EpsonNet 10/100 Base TX Internal Print
Server are a combination of hardware and software that let you
connect an EPSON printer equipped with an optional interface
slot directly to your network. Install the interface card into your
printer’s optional interface slot (see your printer documentation
or contact your EPSON dealer for applicable models), and connect
it anywhere on your network.
Note:
❏ This manual is written for network administrators, and many of the
steps included here require detailed network knowledge and
administrator rights. The term network administrator refers to the
person responsible for maintaining the customer network.
“Administrator” is synonymous with “Supervisor” in this manual.
❏ The term “interface card” refers to C82362✽, C82363✽, and
C82364✽ in this manual.
The interface card automatically selects the correct interface when
it connects to the network. In addition, it supports IEEE 802.2,
IEEE 802.3, Ethernet II, and Ethernet SNAP network protocols.
Because the interface card supports multiple protocols and
automatically detects the protocols on your network, you can
print from Microsoft® Windows®, Apple® Macintosh®, UNIX,
and IBM® OS/2 applications.
Use EpsonNet WinAssist or MacAssist, the configuration
software provided with your interface card, to quickly and easily
configure the interface card to use protocols such as IPX/SPX™,
TCP/IP, EtherTalk®, and NetBEUI.

if it is off-line, or if it is not ready to print.
Note:
If the printer does not print a status sheet, make sure that the printer is
on-line and no print jobs are being processed, then wait a minute before
trying again. If it still does not print a status sheet, turn the printer off,
wait until the status lights go out, and then turn it on again.
c
Caution:
After turning off the printer, wait until the status lights go out
before turning it back on; otherwise the interface card may not
work correctly.
Network connectors
The interface card can detect which kind of cable is attached. You
do not need to make any hardware or software settings to specify
the cable type. However, you must not attach more than one cable
at a time.
10BASE-2 (C82362✽ only)

❏ The interface card is set to the default IP address "192.168.192.168".
This private IP address may cause a conflict on your network. To
prevent this, you must confirm that the same IP address does not
exist on the network before connecting the interface card to the
network. If it does, turn off the device which has the same IP address,
then change the default IP address of the interface card. See Chapter
2 for instructions on setting the IP address.
❏ Be sure to use a HUB to connect the interface card to the network
since the interface card does not support direct connection to a
computer.

Setting the IP Address Using EpsonNet WinAssist/
MacAssist
After you have installed TCP/IP, you need to set the IP address
for the interface card.
Note:
❏ The interface card is set to the default IP address "192.168.192.168".
This private IP address may cause conflicts on your network. To
prevent this, you must confirm that the same IP address does not
exist on the network before connecting the interface card to the
network. If it does, turn off the device which has the same IP address,
then change the default IP address of the interface card. Be sure to
ask your network administrator for the IP address, subnet mask, and
default gateway.
❏ To set the IP address for OS/2 and UNIX, use the arp/ping
command. For more information, see “Setting the IP Address Using
arp/ping Commands” on page 2-17.
Follow the steps below to set the IP address. The example screens
are from the Windows 95 operating system using EpsonNet
WinAssist. Other systems differ in appearance, however the
instructions are the same, except as noted.
1. Confirm that the necessary protocols are installed in the
computer.
If you are using Windows 98/95 or Windows NT, TCP/IP
must be installed. If you are using Macintosh, AppleTalk must
be installed.
2. Turn on the printer with the interface card.

Setting the IP Address Using arp/ping Commands
If you are using UNIX or OS/2, you need to use the arp and ping
commands to set the IP address of the interface card. You can also
use these commands with Windows 98, Windows 95, Windows
2000, or Windows NT, if you have correctly installed TCP/IP
networking on these systems. The interface card and host must
be in the same segment.
Note:
Make sure that the Set by PING function is available in the TCP/IP
menu in EpsonNet WinAssist/WebAssist. If it is off, you cannot set the
IP address using arp/ping commands.
Before you start, you will need the following information:
❏ A valid IP address for the interface card. Ask your system
administrator for an IP address which will not cause conflicts
with any other device on the network. If you are the system
administrator, choose an address within your subnet which
will not conflict with any other device.
❏ The MAC (Ethernet hardware) address of the interface card.
This is the hardware serial number of the card, which cannot
be changed. You can check the MAC address on a status sheet.
Checking the LAN
First, you need to check that the interface card can be reached from
the host.
1. Set the default gateway to the host on which you will be
setting up the interface card.
If there is a server or router which acts as a gateway, enter the
address of the server or router. If there is no gateway, enter
the IP address of your computer as a gateway address.

2. The default IP address of the interface card is
"192.168.192.168". Check that the card is reachable by
“pinging” it from the command line:
ping 192.168.192.168
3. If the interface card is reachable, you should see results
something like the following (the exact form of the message
depends on your operating system, and the time may vary):
64 bytes from 192:168:192:168:icmp_seq=0.
Time=34.ms
4. If the card is unreachable, you may see something like:
PING 192:168:192:168:56 data bytes
until you press Ctrl-C, when you may see something like:
192:168:192:168 PING Statistics
3 packets transmitted, 0 packets received,
100% packet loss
Again, the exact wording of the message you see may differ
from this, depending on your operating system. If you cannot
“ping” the interface card, check the following:
❏ The address is correct in the ping command.
❏ 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.
❏ The interface card is operating normally (red light off,
green light on).

Setting and checking the new IP address
To set the new IP address which you have obtained from your
system administrator, use the arp command, with the -s flag
(create ARP entry).
Note:
In the following, we will assume that the MAC address of your interface
card is 00:00:48:93:00:00 (hexadecimal), and that the IP address which
you will be assigning is 192.168.100.201 (decimal). Substitute your
values for these addresses when you type in the commands.
1. From the command line, type:
Example: arp -s 192.168.100.201 00-00-48-93-00-00
2. You can now check the new IP address, by “pinging” it:
Example: ping 192.168.100.201
3. The interface card should now respond to the ping. If it does
not, you may have incorrectly typed the MAC address or the
IP address in the arp -s command. Double-check and try
again. If all else fails, re-initialize the interface card and try
again.
4. Print a status sheet to check whether the new IP address has
been assigned for the interface card.
Note:
When you set the IP address of the interface card in this way, you
cannot change the subnet mask or gateway setting of the interface
card. You must use the EpsonNet WinAssist in Windows (98, 95,
2000, or NT), or EpsonNet MacAssist in Macintosh to change these
parameters. You can also use EpsonNet WebAssist to change these
parameters.

PCONSOLE limitation
To use the interface card in Print Server mode, you cannot use
the Print Server status display control with PCONSOLE.
Bindery and NDS
❏ Bindery context path can be confirmed from the server
console by the SET BINDERY CONTEXT command.
❏ If the bindery context path has not been set, or if you want to
use the print environment of another context from a non-NDS
client, it is necessary to specify the context for the bindery
context. Use SET BINDERY CONTEXT command to set the
context in the AUTOEXEC.NCF file.
❏ You cannot use the bindery print server mode with EpsonNet
WinAssist if you are using Novell Client for Windows 95/98
version 3.00 or Novell Client for Windows NT version 4.50.

You can select either of the following routing protocols; a)
NLSP with RIP/SAP Compatibility or b) RIP/SAP Only. If
you remove the bind of RIP or SAP when NLSP with RIP/
SAP Compatibility is specified, the interface card is not able
to communicate with the file server and NDS. (See
“Protocols” and “Bindings” in NetWare’s INETCFG utility.)
Time required to recognize the interface card
It takes up to two minutes for the NetWare server to recognize
the interface card after turning on the printer. During this
start-up time, the status sheet does not show the correct
information.
Frame type
The same frame type should be used for the NetWare server
and IPX router on the same network. If more than one frame
type is used on the same network, bind the all the frame types
to the NetWare servers and IPX routers.
Instruction for NetWare 5
The IPX protocol must be installed (bound) to the NetWare 5
server.
Instruction for mode
If the mode you have logged in is different from the mode you
set for the interface card, a message appears when you try to
configure the interface card for NetWare. If you do not want
to change the current settings, click Cancel and log in again
in the same mode as you set for the interface card.

Note:
❏ Automatic installation of NDPS is not supported.
❏ Banners cannot be printed with NDPS.
❏ The Status Monitor 2 utility cannot be used with NetWare 5 in
Windows NT 4.0.
❏ For detailed information about NDPS, see the NetWare 5 online
documentation.
Make sure of the following points before starting;
❏ When you install NetWare 5, install "IPX" ("IP" is installed by
default).
❏ When you use the interface card with Bindery (either in Print
Server mode or Remote Printer mode), you need
PCONSOLE.EXE to create bindery objects such as a Print
Server and a Print Queue object. Since PCONSOLE.EXE does
not come with NetWare 5, you need to get the file from Novell.
Outline of settings
The following are basic steps to follow in order to use the interface
card with the NDPS printing system. Detailed procedures are
described in the following sections.
1. Select the Connection Type and make the printer
environment for the Server and Clients.
2. Create an NDPS Manager object in NetWare Administrator.

Instructions for Using a Dial-Up Network
This section explains about using a dial-up network.
Note:
The primary server described in this manual indicates a primary time
server which offers time to the workstations on the network.
3
Using a dial-up network in each mode
Print Server mode
You must use a dedicated dial-up line.
Since polling is performed on the file server in the print server
mode, no vicarious response by the router is possible. No dialup connection is possible in this mode.
Remote Printer mode
In Remote Printer mode, use of a router with a vicarious
response function allows the primary server to be installed at
the dial-up destination. However, an extra account might be
generated when the primary server is down. To avoid extra
charges, we recommend to connect via a dedicated dial-up
line.
Follow the instructions below to use a dial-up line.

When there is a primary server at the dial-up destination
For local networks with file servers:
File
server
Dial-up
router
Printer
Primary file server
(primary print server)
Dial-up
router
Local network
Remote network
❏ When the power is turned on
A dial-up is generated because access is made to a local file
server first and then to a primary server. This is not a problem
since this dial-up only occurs at startup.
❏ When the interface card is not set correctly
A dial-up is generated because access is made to a local file
server first and then to a primary server. This dial-up is
repeated at intervals of approximately 5 minutes. Make the
correct interface card settings to avoid this problem.
❏ 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 a dial-up.
❏ During normal operation (printing)
A dial-up is generated while the printing data is being
transferred. This is not a problem because it is a dial-up
specific to the dial-up network.
❏ When the primary server is down during operation

A dial-up is generated because a connection to the primary
server is attempted periodically. Since this is attributable to
the automatic re-connection function, turn the printer with
the interface card off and on.
❏ When the file server on the local network is down
When there is no file server on the local network, NetWare
cannot be used on the local network. In this case, the NetWare
protocol for the interface card is also not available. No dialup is generated under this condition. When the file server on
the local network is restored, the interface card is also
automatically restored.
For local networks with no file server:
Printer
Dial-up
router
Dial-up
router
Local network
Primary file server
(primary print server)
Remote network
Depending on the router setting, the NetWare protocol can be
used without a file server on the local network. This case also
follows the first five described above.
For local networks with a primary server
Even if a primary server is installed on the local network, an
unnecessary dial-up may be generated depending on the
configuration.

❏ When the power is turned on
Since access is made only to the primary server, no dial-up is

❏ When the interface card is not correctly set
Since access is made only to the primary server, no dial-up is
generated. However, if the file server/print server of the
remote network is erroneously set as the primary server, an
unnecessary dial-up might be generated. Correct the settings
to avoid this problem.
❏ During normal operation (standby/printing)
Since access is made only to the primary server, no dial-up is
generated.
❏ When the primary server is down during operation
Connection to the primary server is periodically attempted,
but no dial-up is generated. However, if the router is set to
pass SAP packets (Find Nearest Server), an unnecessary dialup might be generated. To avoid this, turn off the printer once,
or do not allow the router to pass SAP packets (Find Nearest
Server).

Chapter 8
Using the Interface Card with UNIX
This chapter explains how to set up the printer for different UNIX
systems using the lpr command.
The interface card supports many standard UNIX commands and
can be configured from a host computer without using a special
setup utility.
The interface 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 interface card does not convert data into the printer control
language, a printer driver and filter are necessary for each system.
lpr filters
Filters for lpr are controlled by the name given to the remote
printer. When setting up an lpr printer entry, a name is entered
for:
❏ the local printer name to be redirected
❏ the host name of the station to which the print is sent
❏ the remote printer name (name of the printer port on the
remote station)
It is this last name that the interface card uses to determine which
filters to use.

Many different remote printer names may be set up, all directed
to the same interface card remote host, and each is given a
different local printer name to be redirected. Different types of
print jobs may thus be sent to different printer names, which will
then all print out on the same printer, through the same interface
card interface, but using different filters.
The remote printer name options used to invoke the different
filters are as follows:
lpb
Binary files (no filters)
lpa
ASCII files (carriage returns at line ends)
lpbf
Binary file with form feed at file end
lpaf
ASCII file with form feed at file end
All other remote printer name options will be treated the same as
lpb.
The following is an example of sending a text file, "txtfile", via lpr
with a form feed appended:
% lpr -plpaf txtfile
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

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 farther away 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 0 for the
number of hops during installation. To reset the number of hops,
reinstall Status Monitor as described on page 10-8.

EpsonNet Internet Print Utility
The EpsonNet Internet Print is a utility program that supports
printing across the Internet using Internet Printing Protocol (IPP).
Since the interface card supports IPP, Internet printing is possible
using this utility. You can print or make printer’s settings from
Windows 98, Windows 95, and Windows NT4.0 systems that can
access the Internet. You can also print via a proxy server using
this utility.
Before using the EpsonNet Internet Print utility, be sure to read
the README file located in the EpsonNet Internet Print folder.
This file contains the latest information on EpsonNet Internet
Print.
Note:
EPSON Status Monitor 2 (or EPSON Status Monitor 3) is a utility
program that monitors your printer and gives you information about its
current status. Because this utility does not support IPP, a printer
connected to the Internet cannot be monitored with EPSON Status
Monitor 2. If you use EpsonNet Internet Print on a computer in which
the EPSON Status Monitor 3 is installed, you might see a
communication error message when you click printer’s properties. To
avoid this, click the Optional Settings tab in the target printer’s
properties dialog box and check the Update the Printer Option
Information Manually radio button.

Printer Status Page Utility
This section explains about the Printer Status Page utility and
Internet Printing that Windows 2000 offers. Printer Status Page is
a set of customized web pages for Microsoft Windows 2000
Internet Printing. With this utility, you can monitor the printer
status and network settings of the EPSON printer.
The Microsoft Internet Printing lets you print from Windows 2000
Server and Windows 2000 Professional clients to Windows 2000
print servers using a URL. You can search printers on your
network, manage printers, and view the printer and print job
status using a browser in Windows 2000.
Printer Status Page is a utility that comes with an EPSON printer
driver for Windows 2000. When you install EPSON printer
drivers for Windows 2000, Printer Status Page is also installed.
The appearance of the screen will differ depending on the printer
you are monitoring.
Note:
Using the Printer Status Page utility requires the use of network
privileges and detailed network knowledge. If you need assistance,
contact your network administrator.

Setting Up the Printer
This section explains about the system requirements of Printer
Status Page and how to set up the printer. The standard port
monitor that comes with Windows 2000 connects a Windows 2000
print server to network-interface printers that use the TCP/IP
protocol. You must install the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) on the
server and set the printer for TCP/IP. See “Windows 2000” on
page 2-5 to install Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
The environmental requirements for Printer Status Page are;
Server and client
❏ Internet Information Service (IIS) is installed in Windows
2000. To check whether IIS is installed, double-click the Add/
Remove Programs icon in the Control Panel, click the Add/
Remove Windows Components button, and then click the
Components button. In the Windows Components dialog
box, see if the Internet Information Service (IIS) is checked.
If not, check and install it.
❏ Internet Explorer 4.01 or higher installed.
❏ The computer is connected to the network and TCP/IP is
correctly set.
Printer
You need to set up the printer that you want to manage with
Printer Status Page.
1. Make sure the printer is connected to the network, and TCP/
IP is correctly set for the printer.
2. Install the printer driver using the Add Printer wizard. When
you install EPSON printer driver for Windows 2000, Printer
Status Page is also installed. See “Printing via Standard TCP/
IP Port Monitor in Windows 2000” on page 6-2 and following
notes to install a printer driver.
