Cannot find print server at all
How this works:
Restoring the PocketPrintServer to Factory Defaults
In most cases, the best way to restore the PocketPrintServer to
factory defaults is through "telnet". However, if you are unable to
connect to the device because of a configuration error, use the
following method which does not require a network connection.
To restore the PocketPrintServer to factory defaults, complete
the following steps:
1. Disconnect the PocketPrintServer from the network and
power cycle it. When it powers up, the LED will rapidly
blink orange for five seconds.
2. Power down the device during the rapid orange blink
period. Power up the device and power it down during
that orange blink period two more times.
3. Reconnect the network cable and power up the
PocketPrintServer. It will have restored itself to factory
defaults and will rapidly blink green as it searches for a
RARP or BOOTP server to find an IP address.
If an IP address has not been permanently assigned when the
PocketPrintServer is powered on or reset, it will look for a "ping"
packet on the network. If the PocketPrintServer receives a "ping"
packet within two minutes, it will accept the IP address in the
"ping" packet as its own address.
To use Gleaning, you must have super-user privileges on a UNIX
system. Gleaning also works under Windows 95 and Windows NT.
1. Add an entry in the ARP table that assigns an IP address to the
Ethernet address of the PocketPrintServer. To do this, use the
arp -s temp
arp -s 192.168.42.24 00:02:16:00:00:01 temp
2. Start a continuous "ping" to the PocketPrintServer.
Example: ping 192.168.42.24
On some systems, this may require an additional parameter.
Some implementations of "ping" only send out one "ping"
packet which could get lost in transit. Check your system
documentation for more information.
3. Connect power to the PocketPrintServer.
The PocketPrintServer will "glean" its IP address from the "ping"
packet. This IP address will remain in effect until the
PocketPrintServer is power cycled or reset. Therefore, a permanent
IP address should be assigned by running the ExtendView TCP/IP
utility or via "telnet".
