Question about Extended Systems Pocket Print Server

Cannot find print server at all

I cannot find the my extended systems print server at all. It is a ESI-2831. I seems to be set to have a static IP which I am unable to find, my router stores the MAC address in it's route table but mentions no IP, so I know it is at least connecting to the network. How could i find the unit? can i reset the settings somehow? Thank you

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. Gleaning 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" command. arp -s temp Example: arp -s 192.168.42.24 00:02:16:00:00:01 temp 2. Start a continuous "ping" to the PocketPrintServer. ping 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".

Reset ESI 2833 until red light turned green. Network Printer still not responding


Check the IP Address of the 2833. I believe there is a gray button you can depress to print out a configuration sheet. If the wireless modem was also your router, you may have a different IP address range and will need to set the 2833 accordingly.

I have an extendnet sx ESI-2811 Print Server. It doesn't work and I can't ping it when directly connected to my laptop via ethernet cable. It must be broken. Any ideas?


Use a crossover cable to connect laptop directly. Does your print server have a static IP address and do you know what it is? If yes, set a static IP on your laptop that is in the same subnet and with the same mask, then you should be able to ping it. If the print server is obtaining an IP by DHCP, you will have to set up and run a DHCP server on the laptop (or connect it with a straight-thru cable to an existing router that offers this service).

My network HP laserjet 4Vprinter and ESI 2830 pocket print server suddenly gives an error message "No RARP/BootP Server". How can I fix this?


the information in the link is too long to paste but you may want to look at it.

HP Jetdirect and Embedded Jetdirect Inside Print Servers - TCP/IP, Messages on Configuration Page or Self-Test Page

Get the IP address subnet and gateway address of a computer in the same network.

Usingthe LJ5's control panel, setup a static IP for the Jet Direct using thenumbers you got from the Laptop, except change the last number of theIP to one that is not being currently being used. Perhaps adding 5 or10 to the highest number in use.
Here are the steps to configure the LJ5.

1.Press MENU, repeatedly, until the following message appears on thecontrol panel: HP LaserJet 5/5n/5m and the original Color LaserJet: HPMIO MENU
2. Press ITEM. CFG NETWORK=NO* will appear.
3. Press the PLUS button once. CFG NETWORK=YES* will appear.
4. Press ENTER or SELECT.
5. Press ITEM repeatedly until CFG TCP/IP=NO* appears.
6. Press the PLUS button. CFG TCP/IP=YES* will appear.
7. Press ENTER or SELECT.
8. Press ITEM until BOOTP=YES* appears.
9. Press the PLUS button. BOOTP=NO will appear.
o When using BootP or DHCP, keep the setting BOOTP=YES*.
o The BootP or DHCP server will configure the TCP/IP parameters on the HP Jetdirect.
o No other TCP/IP configuring is necessary.
10. Press ENTER or SELECT.
11. Press ITEM. IP BYTE 1 = (value) will appear.
12.Press the PLUS button until the value of the first byte of the IPaddress appears on the control-panel display. By pressing SHIFT and thePLUS button, the value will decrease.
13. Press ENTER or SELECT.
14. Press ITEM to continue. Repeat Steps 11-13 to configure the remaining bytes of the IP address.
15.Repeat Steps 11-13 to configure the subnet mask bytes (SM BYTE 1=),syslog server IP address (LG BYTE 1=), default gateway (GW BYTE 1=),and timeout (TIMEOUT=).
16. Press ONLINE. Print a self-test page to verify the IP settings.
17. If the test page does not show the correct settings, power cycle the printer and reprint the test page.


else: have the printserver reinstalled

The segement of the print server you select is different from your computer" on Vista,


Meaning that the IP Address of the print server is different from the computer's IP Address.

If you're computer has a static IP Address, you need to assign a static IP Address for your Print Server. To assign a static IP for the print server, you need to open the PSAdmin utility on your computer, locate the TCP/IP and click the plus (+) sign. Double-click the IP Address and you may change it from there.

Make sure that the IP Address of your computer, router and print server are in the same IP range. And make sure that you could ping the IP of the print server.

Then configure the printer port settings and you should be able to print.

Have a great day!

Can't find printserver on the network


Most Print Servers are by default on DHCP and if the PS is still on its factory defaults, it won't get an IP address because your computer won't have a DHCP server (unless u have set up one). Now, you can ask the person you got it from if he had ever assigned a static IP Address to the PS. Also, one of the reasons why your laptop won't detect the PS might be a software firewall installed. Please revert back with any other questions or observations. good luck
