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).

Star micronic sp700 ethernet problem


10.x.x.x subnet can't see 192.x.x.x network. There must be manufacture reset button on the Star micronics sp700?. You can configured your laptop/computer IP to 192.168.2.100 (not the same as printer) than use crossover ethernet cable (you can find it in best buy), connected directly between your laptop and printer, you should be able to see it on your browser now.

Most people big mistake when assigned static ip. First you need to reserve that IP on your router so it doesn't get pickup by DHCP and assigned to another devices.

Does ExtentNet 100x support Zebra printer language ZPL2?


It doesn't support it directly, but it shouldn't prevent it from working. However it might be sending extraneous PJL commands between print jobs (example @PJL -12345X) which could mess up a label. ZPL is basically ASCII, the ExtendNet shouldn't prevent ASCII delivery.

My printer (MFC-440CN) keeps going offline. It's hooked via Ethernet cable to my home network. If I disconnect/reconnect the cable it comes online again but after I print it goes offline again. Thanks...


First, try printing while the printer is directly connected to the computer to see if you will get the same behavior from the printer.

If the printer works fine when directly connected to the computer, reconnect the printer via the Ethernet cable and try to perform the "ping of death" (continues ping of the IP Address of the printer).

Using the continues ping, you will see if the communication between the computer and the printer is being interrupted or not. Here's how to perform the ping of death:

DOS Prompt > ping 10.71.x.x -t > hit enter.

On the DOS prompt, you need to type ping and then hit the space bar, followed by the IP address of the printer > space bar > minus t (-t) > Enter.

____________________________________________________________

If the same problem occurs, then try to uninstall/reinstall the printer driver. If that did not help, try to clear the print spooler on your computer.

Good luck and have a great day!

I want to connect the print server ESI9132079.i need drivers for this print server.


hi,

Download and read the manual of this print server.
http://silexamerica.com/us/products/pdf/xtnd/dx-sx.pdf

You only need the actual printer drivers not the print server driver (there is no such thing for print server drivers). Once you connect to network and to Print server, you should be able to see what brand printer is connected to server such as HP, Epson, Fujixerox, Samsung, etc.

Hope this helps

Cheers
Shafie

Can't connect to WPSM54G after configuring it


hi sir,

1. first reset the printserver
2. make sure that the printer drivers are installed on the comp.
3. use a w/l comp on which we can go online
4. connect the w/l comp to the print server using ethernet cable and also connect the printer to the print server
5. put the print server cd into the comp and run setup.
6. make sure printer server is near to router and there is no firewall on the comp.
7. the setup will give the ipaddress to print server if not plz assign static ip on the printserver.
8. follow the wizard
9. it will ask u the w/l settings to enter. plz type the exact same n/w name and security password.and apply the settings.
10.after that it will connect u to the print server and u will be able to print if you will not u will find an error to open port.
11.you need to open standard tcp/ip ports for the printserver ipaddress that u have assigned.
12. if u dont knw, u can ask the comp vendor.
13. plz also confifm that the printer is compatible with ur print server.

thanx and regards

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. 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".
