Please provide the model number of your Print server.

Also are you addressing the printer with an IP address or creating it as a Windows print device using the windows network addressing?

    Not sure if you have seen my note yet.



    Please provide some more details of your NAS server (make, model, file system etc.)



    If you are going from Linux to Windows - it is possible the file system on your NAS is not compatible to your windows system. Unless you can get windows to connect with NAS drive it is unlikely you will be able to access the printer (which I presume is a USB printer).

    I used the print server that came with my Dlink DNS 323 so dont know if it has a model number and I think I used Windows Network addressing, Can you please advise on a solution ? I suspect the NAS maybe fault as it makes a clicking noise after changing the h.d. from drive 1 to 2 so I have logged a call with Dlink Warrranties for a replacement but It seems odd that trying to configure a print server has rendered my NAs un-connectable

  • Sam Aug 11, 2010

    Thanks for clarifying the model no. of your NAS.



    I would suggest you reset the device to factory default. I am assuming you have the software CD for the DNS-323. Then reconfigure to connect your printer.



    The manual and latest driver software is available from Dlink website. Click on the Resources tab.

    You may also want to check that you are using the latest firmware available for the NAS.

This is a suspected driver problem,what you should do is check your manufacturer's (example HP) support webpage to see if drivers are available for Ubuntu. If so, download and install them before setting up your printer.Check the Ubuntu Support Pages listed in forums for manufacturer and model specific information(you can ge these forums through google.com) or visit https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Printers.

Hi,

Please uninstall the printer drivers completely. Also switch off the print server . Now install the driver and the software fresh and then start the print server. The problem is to empty the virtual memorey so that it configures the printer fresh.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

How to configure FreeNas


Not sure that I understand your question right, but the non-gui part during the installation only refers to the networking setup. If you want to set up your NAS with a static IP see here.
A general walk through the installation (including photos) is here.

Why do you want to use FreeNAS on ubuntu in the first place? Why not using ubuntu 10.04 server or (my first choice) CentOS 5.x or 6.2 (initial network setup is a little bit tricky on 6.x, but tons of documentation on the net by now). Cent is super stable and you can easily run it without a gui. I use ssh to do whatever I have to do on the box (It's a 8TB backup server.)

Let me know if you have any questions or would like to discuss - I'm happy to help.

In your office network, for sure, you have a DHCP server who gave the IP addresses to all devices for that network and this seems to be the reason for why you could see your NAS. On home, you also need a DHCP server. You don't say anything about you home network. The best idea is to just make a temporary network with 2 devices: your computer and your NAS by connecting the NAS directly to your computer's network adapter, set the IPV4 IP for that adapter to the same class addresses as your NAS was set by default (usually NAS had "192.168.x.y" where "x" could be 0, 1 or 2 "y" could be any value between 1 and 254, but mostly, 1) and try to access it via http to manage him (need a user name and a password). For NAS default address and username and password, consult NAS user manual. Access it with from your preferred browser using: \\192.168.x.y
Once you gain the control, cut off his DHCP service and tell him to accept the IP address from the network defined DHCP. (btw: one normal DHCP server is allowed on one network! Cascaded DHCP also is allowed, but it's a little bit complicated)
Good luck!

ZPS2102, ZPW1000, ZPS1000 :: Trouble shooting tips for finding the print server using the utility

supporting troubleshooting links
? A: Please check the connection link light.

Temporarily disable all firewalls on your system even the Windows XP firewall
(for instruction to disable XP firewall, please go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283673 )

Power cycle the print sever by unplug the power at the back (10 second).
The print server default IP is 192.168.5.1
Set the computer which has the print server utility installed to have an IP of 192.168.5.2

(Test ping the print server / 192.168.5.1 --
If print server is respond to ping, using web browser with the address of 192.168.5.1 will also beable to configure the print server)

Run the utility/hit the refresh button to find the print server again.
The CD has two installation methods:
1. The Auto run will run the utility.
2. By manually install the program into your system. (Browse CD to the folder: manual installation.)
It is recommended to use the 2nd method and run the PSAdmin utility from the system's programs after the installation is completed.
If it still could not find the print server, direct connect your computer to the print server using cross over cable and run the utility again to find the print server.
When it finds the print server, change the print server IP(192.168.5.1) to a unique static IP your router can accept. Put the print server back to the network, change back your computer's IP accordingly and try ping the print server with the new IP or run the utility again.

For wireless print server, it is recommended to use Ad-hoc connection from a wireless computer to connect to the print server first. (follow the Quick Installation Guide booklet that came with the box on page 8)

My Belkin Home Base F5L049 isn't recognising my external hard drives that have their own power supply. Seems to be working fine with USB powered hard drives. How do I get it to recognise my powered...


Hi,

I am having similar problems with my HomeBase. I have 3 x 1Tb Seagate external USB2.0 NTFS drives (FreeAgent) connected. The aim is to have my digital TV, LG set-top box, Apple TV, PC and Laptop all access the files and capacity offered by the NAS option.

They work fine in 'single user network USB' mode, but are very flaky / non-existant in 'NAS, multi-user' mode. There are times when the HomeBase is restarted and recognises one or more of the drives in NAS mode, but mostly they are not recognised. On the back of the unit, you can see the LED next to the USB port leading to the drives initially stay lit, but then flashes for 10-15 seconds and then goes out.

As I want the hard disks available to multiple devices I need to use the NAS setting.
Did you try to set the drives into 'Network USB mode' rather than NAS mode. Does that help?

Did anyone have a solution to the problem? Unfortunately Belkin technical support have not been very useful yet...

Thanks

Mark

How to establish a network connection using ubuntu as server and windows xp as clients?


Make sure that you have samba installed, that will allow you to share folders as shares that Windows can see.

If you want to get tot he CLI on the ubuntu server from the XP machines, just download PuTTY (just google 'download putty'), and then you should be able to SSH to the ubuntu server.

Hope that helps!

It seems that the main hard drive in this server either went bad, had a windows corruption or that one of the internal connections inside this server went bad.

You would need to check on all three of these areas to make sure 1) the main hard drive is functional (which is my first suspision so check the hard drive for errors and if it fails you would need to do a data transfer to a new hard drive). 2) use your windows software to repair the dammaged registry that may have been corrupted somehow (only do this if the main server's hard drive passes its hardware tests).

You would need to run the original os but I would need to know which one you are using to guide you more to solving the regisrty issue.

3) Hopefully tis server has a warrenty and it may need replacing if all else is working.

Try #1 which is the highest supected for failed hard drive issue (remember if discovered that main hd is bad you may need to perform a data transfer immediatly and replace with a new hard drive.

any other questions please write back with status :)

Print jobs get stuck in the queue


OK - all the answer posts on HP sites, Experts Exchange and MS have been a joke to this problem so far. HP 10xx series LaserJet printers do not work (well) in a shared environment. I have found two solutions to this problem. If you really don't understand shares/printing/services/firewall exceptions - don't bother trying this - buy a networked printer when the toner runs out of the HP10xx.
If you want to spend a few hours or about $100 for a print server/NAS device, read on... I HAVE an HP1022 shared on a Windows XP Pro SP3 machine serving as a print server to a Vista laptop, a Windows 7 desktop and a Mac-Mini running OS X 10.6.x. ALL are working.
1. Buy a network print server device (or a NAS device with an included print server - I picked up a Buffalo LS-CHL 1TB and it worked out of the box. I AM NOT ENDORSING BUFFALO NAS servers, they get horrible reviews and you may end up having the same problem down the road due to the NAS device) In this case, your print clients (Win7, Vista, XP, MacOS X) can use a traditional SMB Windows client to print or the BETTER solution is to use the print services for Unix client that comes with Windows but is not installed by default. Both clients work, you may have fewer problems down the road using the Unix (LPR) client. See http://www.alexfalkenberg.com/2009/10/06/linkstation-windows-printing-problem-solved/ This is an excellent article on the Buffalo - BUT THE SOLUTION works in a native windows environment as well.
2. Build on the idea from number 1 above and INSTALL the LPDSVC (friendly name TCP/IP print services) on the machine with the printer LOCALLY attached through USB. You will also have to open up some firewall ports on the machine you are using as a print server if you have one running... I used a program exception (C:\WINDOWS\system32\tcpsvcs.exe) but you could lock this down to 1 TCP port if you wish - I think TCP 515 but you'd better check on this one...) Share the printer as normal. Next install the "Print Services for Unix" CLIENT on the machines you want to connect to the printer remotely from. When you connect to the printer share from the clients, select a LOCAL port, create a NEW PORT, select LPR, use the hostname or the IP of your machine acting as a print server and the NAME OF THE SHARE as the queue. (I don't like to have spaces in my share names, so I used HPLaserJet when I set up the share and description.) You will HAVE TO INSTALL THE RIGHT Printer driver locally on each client. This might be easiest just plugging in the printer with a USB cable since the HP printer driver is an installer as well and wants it to be connected locally unless you can extract the driver...)
Sorry I can't give more details than this. If you don't get the jist of what I am saying above. Don't try it. Give up and call the plumber.

Ubuntu has his own print server. When you click on System/Administration/Print (not sure, because I use the French version :Impression), it opens a window. Then you select Go to the server (again, something similar to that choice), and you can configure the options for the server.
