I have tried to assign the ip to the printer having connected it through the lpt cable, and installed
remote printer console.but whenever i took the test printout's it said ip=initializing
please help me out!
Using the LPT port is not the same as using the network port. The LPT port does not utulise an IP address.
Plug in a network cable to network port and the printer wil usually aquire an ip address via DHCP.
I repeat the LPT port is not a network port and cant initialise an ip address

You din't wrote what's the model of your printer, but I think we can find a solution: 1. Try to ping the IP adress you assigned to the printer. If that works, please download the latest drivers or installation software from the manufacturer of your printer (or second option use the installation disk that came with your printer). If it does not reply to ping, be sure the IP adress you assigned to the printer is in same range as the IP adresses on your network. 2. It is possible that the installation software itself manage to find the printer on the network, and that means the problem is solved 3. If not, install the printer as it is local attached (e.g USB or LPT port) 4. After installing as local printer, please go to printer proprieties, go to port, choose add a new port, choose standard tcp/ip port and write for the port the IP adress you assigned to the printer. 5. Apply changes and ...that's it.
Initially check whether the ip address is assigned in the computer in which internet is not browsing using the command ipconfig/all for windows and ifconfig for linux.If ip is present try to ping the default gateway ip address,if ping is success there is no issue in the cable you used and also with ip address.If ip is not assigned assign ip by manually or by using dhcp of router.Enable and disable the lan card in the router so that sometimes the problem get resolved.After ip is assigned and ping with router is ok .Ensure dns servers are correct else give google public dns server 184.108.40.206.Then try to ping www.google.com in command prompt if ping is success then you can browse.
To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer you need to do the following - 1.Open the printer’s menu and enable the Network Card – then configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the network card to a high number say 100 then set the Subnet Mask IP address to 255.255.255.0 If you have a wireless router then check the IP addresses that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the IP address in the printer accordingly. 2.Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port. 3.Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router. 4.Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties. 5.Click on Ports and click on Add Port. 6.In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port. 7.Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's printer IP address. 8.Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK
Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer’s TCP/IP port as previously detailed. Do a test print page to check the printer. You can now print from any computer on your network.
Hello my friend, regarding on your problem kindly check your system particularly your windows 2008 server OS. Kind reinstall the printer drivers then then shared it. Then after you share the printers kindly check the ip address of your windows server 2008 OS then go to the workstation Computer then click start button found in your task bar manager then click run. Then kindly type the "\\IP of your windows server 2008" where your printer drivers installed then enter. As soon as you can log in the Windows server 2008 menu environment then if you can find or see the printer icon then click the printers icon then right click then click connect. Let the system automatically installed the printer driver to your workstation computer. then as soon as your system finished installed the printer drivers then try to run and print if you can now print using network LAN.
Hope this solution able to solve your problem. If you need more assistance kindly rely to this post.
I'm not sure if you are still looking for the answer, but I think the problem may be that you need to enter the PUBLIC IP address of the modem at the remote end instead of the PRIVATE (ie. 192.168.1.x) IP that was actually assigned to the DVR. It works best if you assign a static IP to the DVR on the remote end and enter that IP into the router's DMZ. You might also want to get a free account at dyndns.net and setup a FQDN for your business router/modem. That way you can connect to it using something like "mybusiness.homeip.net" instead of an IP address, and if the IP changes it will still find it. You will also have to configure your modem at the business to automatically update the dyndns server when the IP changes.
TCP/IP Lan Network Printer...this does not apply to USB / Parallel Cable connected printers.
This is a brief explanation of why a network printer might not be printing; this is not a simple explanation. There are many variables, this is the most common.
This is one of the most common mistakes with Network printers.
A Network printer should bet set to a Static IP address (or fixed address)
Terms: Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) automates the assignment of IP addresses, subnet masks, default gateway, and other IP parameters.
Static IP addresses When a computer / printer is configured to use the same IP address each time it powers up, this is known as a Static IP address.
Regardless if you printer is Wireless, or connected with a LAN cable to the Network.
The PC has a specific fixed location / address to find your printer; this was assigned when the printer was installed (This can be found in the print driver under ports tab, something similar to 192.168.x.xxx, this is the IP address of the printer when it was installed)
If your printer is set to use DHCP, it will reassign a new address every time you reboot, shut down or there is a power loss. (You might get lucky and it assigns the same address as previously assigned)
The PC will look to the address it was assigned at the time of the install and not the new reassigned address. This assigned port in your printer driver is not capable of searching and updating the IP address of the Printer. This is not a Plug and Play item; it is not directly attached to the PC through Parallel Cable or USB.
If you reinstalled the printer after your system rebooted, you probably have the printer installed more than once. One works the other doesn’t! One has the correct address; the one that doesn’t work has the incorrect address.
If you do not set the printer to a static IP address this probably will happen again when it is restarted or there is a loss of power.
How to Fix this Problem: 1. Assign the printer with a Static IP address. Read the manual specific to your machine, sometimes this can be found in the Set up Guide, or Administrators guide. This setting can usually be found in the network settings of the printer. You will also want to set the subnet mask, and the default gateway. Which can be found using a PC? Click start, Run, type in CMD, and new black window will pop up, type ipconfig/all press enter, this will show all the network information you will need for this.
2. Making your PC communicate with Printer: There are a few ways to do this, the easiest is to delete the old driver / printer and reinstall the driver. Most manufactures provide an automated click next type of install software. (Search their website for this)
You can also go into the printer ports of the driver and create a new port using standard TCP/IP port, and reassign to the new port.
A patch cable directly from your PC to Your printer will not work; it will work with a crossover cable and a few minor changes to the TCP/IP settings. (You might get lucky using DCHP on the PC Side)
There are several ways to Network a printer.
Printer connected to Router etc…
The other way is P2P, or a shared printer The Printer is shared from a PC / Server, which the printer can be connected directly to the Sharing PC via Parallel Cable, USB, or Networked through a router as discussed above.
In this Shared connection an administrator has control over the printing abilities of others that are using the printer. The down side to this type of connection: if that PC / Sever is not powered on, having printer connection problems, or not connected to the network. Any PC which is using this shared connection will not be able to print.
I hope this helps, if you need any further assistance, let me know.
if you don't have a netwok card in you Konica 7030 then you have to connect it to your computer over LPT cable or USB Cable then install the software from the Konica 7030 CD.
after that you can Share the installed Konica 7030 Printer and map it at the other computers.
No, a tranceiver cannot be assigned an IP address. It just converts the signal between two types of lines (fiber, copper, etc.). This is mainly used for connecting together networking equipments such as switches or routers.
Depending on the type of interface you plotter have, you may need a device called a Print Server. This device has an IP address and allows a conventional printer signal to travel through an IP network. If your plotter is designed to be connected using a LPT (Parallel) cable, like old printers, you may look for the D-Link DP-301P+ or DP-300U.
