TCP/IP Settings Help

 
TCP/IP Printing Enabled
Specify if you want to enable printing using any of the supported TCP/IP printing protocol, e.g. LPR/LPD, FTP. Default value = Yes
 
IP Address
Specify the IP address for your print server in the format w.x.y.z. You should acquire a unique and unused IP address from your Network Administrator in order to prevent conflicts with other network devices.
Notes: If DHCP, Auto-IP, BOOTP or RARP are enabled, your manual settings might be overridden when you perform a restart. To make sure that this will not happen, you are advised to disable DHCP, Auto-IP, BOOTP and RARP when you are setting the IP address manually.
Important! If you change the IP address you will lose contact with the print server. You must enter the new IP address of the print server in the location field of your Web browser to continue to configure and manage the print server via the Web browser.
 
Default Router
Specify the IP address for the default router. All traffic directed outside the local network, defined by the subnet mask, is sent to the default router. Any re-routing via other routers is done automatically. The setting 0.0.0.0 indicates that no default router is set. If that is the case, the print server anticipates that there is a router available that automatically senses and redirects the print server's packets to destinations outside the local network segment.
To define the Default Router you must first set DHCP Enabled, AutoIP Enabled, BOOTP Enabled and RARP Enabled to No.
 
Subnet Mask
Specify the subnet mask used for determining when the traffic should be sent via a router. This number combined with the IP address identifies on which network the print server is located. The normal class C subnet mask value is usually 255.255.255.0. Default value: 0.0.0.0, indicates that all network segments are accessible.

To define the Subnet Mask you must first set DHCP Enabled, AutoIP Enabled, BOOTP Enabled and RARP Enabled to No.
 
HTTPS Enabled
Set the HTTPS Enabled parameter to Yes if you have a valid certificate loaded and want to enable SSL. Default value: NO.
 
PROS Password
Specify the password for the PROS printing protocol. If you change the default password, you must also change the password entry in the corresponding PROS driver on the host - refer to your technical reference. Default value = netprinter
 
PROS TCP Port Number
Specify the PROS TCP port number for the PROS printing protocol. Port 35 is, by convention, reserved for TCP/IP Print servers. If you change this parameter, you must also change the Port Number in the corresponding PROS driver on the host - refer to your technical reference. The permissible range is from 0 to 65535.
 
LPD Banner Page
Check the appropriate box to specify if the LPD banner page is to be printed. Default value = Off
  • OFF disables the LPD banner page.
  • AUTO prints the LPD banner page first or last depending on your operating system.
  • LAST forces the printer to print the LPD banner page last independently of operating system.
 
DHCP Enabled
Select the appropriate radio button to enable DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). DHCP automatically downloads the IP address to each print server at startup. Depending on how your network has been configured, other Internet-related parameters such as the default router, subnet mask, etc. might also be set automatically. However, we recommend that you verify the settings when the server has been restarted and then enter any missing parameters manually. Default value = Yes
 
AutoIP Enabled
Select the appropriate radio button to enable AutoIP. AutoIP automatically assigns a temporary IP address to print servers on local subnets at startup. This only applies to situations where DHCP is absent on the network: AutoIP cannot function if the DHCP enabled parameter is set to No. Default value = Yes
 
BOOTP Enabled
Select the appropriate radio button to enable BOOTP (BOOTstrap Protocol). BOOTP downloads the IP address to each print server at startup. Depending on how your network has been configured, other Internet-related parameters such as the default router, subnet mask, etc. might also be set automatically. However, we recommend that you verify the settings when the server has been restarted and then enter any missing parameters manually. Default value = Yes
 
RARP Enabled
Select the appropriate radio button to enable RARP (Reverse Address Resolution Protocol). RARP downloads the IP address to each print server at startup.This method only operates over single network segments. Other Internet-related parameters such as the default router, subnet mask, etc. must be entered manually as RARP only sets the IP address. Default value = Yes
 
WINS Enabled
Select the appropriate radio button to enable WINS (Windows Internet Name Service) over TCP/IP. WINS uses NetBIOS names to allow Windows-based clients to locate resources on TCP/IP networks. Default value = Yes
 
Primary WINS Server
Specify the IP address of the primary WINS server. The WINS server is used for identifying computers with host names instead of IP addresses
 
Secondary WINS Server
Optionally, specify the IP address of a secondary WINS server. The secondary WINS server will be used in case the the primary WINS server is disconnected or unavailable.
 
NBT Scope ID
Specify the NetBIOS scope to which the print server belongs. The scope ID is a character string value that is appended to the NetBIOS name and used for all NBT communication. The scope ID defines a group of computers that recognizes a registered NetBIOS name. Computers with the same scope ID will be able to hear each others' NetBIOS "traffic" or messages. Default value = <empty> which specifies the default scope.
 
DNS Enabled
Select the appropriate radio button to enable DNS (Domain Name Server) . DNS uses NetBIOS names to allow clients to locate resources on TCP/IP networks. Default value = Yes
 
Primary DNS Server
Specify the IP address of the primary DNS server. The DNS server is used for identifying computers with host names instead of IP addresses.
 
Secondary DNS Server
Optionally specify the IP address of a secondary DNS server. The secondary DNS server will be used in case the the primary DNS server is disconnected or unavailable.
 
Domain Name
Specify the name of the domain to which the print server belongs. Domain refers to a set of computers on a network that have been assigned a group name. A domain might contain two or more workgroups. Default value = <empty string>
 
SLP scope list
Specify the name of the SLP scope to which the print server belongs. The scope refers to a set of computers on a network that have been assigned a scope name. Default value = DEFAULT
 
SMTP Server
In order for the e-mail notification feature to function properly, the SMTP Server field must contain the name of a functioning e-mail server. The DNS name or IP address of the e-mail server can be used. Default value = None
 
FTP enabled
In order for AXIS ThinWizard to function properly, the FTP enabled parameter must be set to YES. Default value = YES
 
Telnet Enabled
Telnet Enabled must be set to NO when operating over https.Default value = YES
 
Default RAW TCP Port
The TCP ports used for raw TCP printing. Default value = 9100-9101

These portnumbers are available for RAW printing:


Important! You must disable the NDPS Printing Protocol (Admin -> Network Settings -> Detailed View -> NetWare -> NDPS Printing Protocol -> Disabled) to completely close ports 9100-9102!

Reverse Telnet Options Enabled
When selected, the reverse telnet ports are enabled to reply to telnet option negotiations from telnet clients. The print server will detect Telnet IAC sequences and when such a sequence is received, the data following immediately after is interpreted as a telnet option.
Raw TCP: When selected, the reverse telnet ports ignore any telnet IAC sequences and just transport the data streams to the assigned logical printer, like raw TCP ports

 

PRx TCP Port Number
Specify which Reverse Telnet port logical printers PR1 to PR8 are assigned to. A value of 0 signifies that Reverse Telnet printing is off. The permissible range is from 0 to 65535.

Default IP Ethernet Frame Type

Choose frame type for network packages. This must correspond with the frame type used on your network, (e.g. on your router, switch, etc).
Default value= Ethernet II.
