Question about Canon imageRUNNER C3200 Copier

Canon imageRUNNER C3200 Copier network setup parameter needed

How do I finish configuring TCP/IP printer settings for a C3200? The machine has an IP address from DHCP, but in the 2nd part of TCP/IP printer configuration, XP doesn't recognize the network interface installed in the machine. There are several selections for Canon devices, and a custom setting. What interface do I select, or do I need to use 'Custom', or whatever, to finish the configuration? I can arrange to share the setup screen over the internet, if that will help. I have machines to configure in 2 locations, C3200s and 6000s, but the stores I'm dealing with don't have a service contract with any local Canon dealers. I'm a computer/networking tech, not a copier tech. I believe I just need this last little piece of the puzzle to get their copiers back to running as network printers. Can anyone guide me?.

    I'm a computer/network tech, not a copier tech. I have 2 locations with C3220 and 6000 Imagerunners that cannot send print jobs, from basic applications like Word, to these copiers. No fancy applications such as InDesign or Quark or other page layout programs are used at these locations, just Word, Excel, etc. 

    I check the installed printer list on an XP machine, seeing that there are several instances of Canon C3220 copiers installed, as shared network printers. I also see some devices that are installed with TCP/IP network ports, at different IP addresses, for the same printer. However, none of the network ports already created point to the IP that the C3220 actually has, so I attempted to add another TCP/IP printer port, using the IP that does exist.

    For example, let's say that a C3220 has an IP of 192.168.22.47, given out via DHCP. I can ping that address, with packets from 32 bytes to 1500 bytes payload size, no problem.  

    When I reached the screen saying 'additional port information required', shown below but without the actual IP, there are 2 choices: Custom, or Pick a standard device type'. I tried 2 of the several Canon choices, no output, and I (believe) once I tried a custom port creation, taking the default 9100 socket and checking SNMP enabled, but that failed, too. Personally, I thought the custom choice would work, but I haven't spent a great deal of time at the store locations to troubleshoot this particular issue.

    At one location I got a C3220 to accept print jobs, but it was using a pre-existing printer setting that was a copier attached to another computer over a TCP/IP printer port, then 'shared' to be made available to the other XP boxes on the network. 

    I want to install a TCP/IP port, per each different copier, on each computer in their network, so that any computer can print to the copiers without dependence on a single computer that is configured as if it had a locally-attached printer that had to be shared.

    I can have DHCP in the router reserve IP address assignments to the copiers via MAC addresses so that the IP the copiers receive remains stable. I'm not very familiar with the browser interface these devices have, in case those web interfaces will let me assign static addresses to the network cards in these machines.


    One of the locations has 2 copiers on its network, but only 1 shows up on a my network inventory scan, and only 2 of the 3 XP boxes in that store shows up on the same network scan. However, I can send print jobs to the C3220 that does appear. That C3220 is configured as being shared from the main POS XP system.

    At the other store location, there is only 1 c3220 running, which has an IP from DHCP, but, again, I haven't been able, yet, send a print job to it, from Word or whatever. 

    So, should I use a custom setting, or pick a particular Canon interface, or what? I can test a new configuration on the one c3220 that does accept print jobs now, over the share, but I would rather, first, try to fix the copier installation in the store with the lone C3220. There, it's easier for me to get new access to the device, and that store needs the access restored more than the other location.

    Ok, I thought I was being clear, but I'll try again.

    I just want to assign a new TCP/IP printer port to the Canon printer (copier) settings in Windows XP. I don't want to go through the touchscreen panel on the copier to assign a true static IP to the network cards in these copiers. I'm an I.T. guy, not a copier repairman. I think that I should add a new port to each installed printer in each XP machine's printer settings, rather than attach one copier to one machine, then share that printer, then add this shared printer to other machines as a \\server\printer connection.

    One person suggested I use the 'custom' device setting, selecting RAW protocol and a port of 9100, and that I should assign the net card in the copier a static IP. So far, I think this is the advice I want. I'll test that advice, before accepting that explanation.

    I reposted the question, indicating I can easily reserve an IP that will always be given to these copiers, using their MAC addresses, via the DHCP server built into the router that is on their network. If I do so, that is functionally equivalent to assigning a static IP to the copier network card via another method, such as through the touch screen panel on the copier, as another tech suggested.

    Yes, I know that if the copier's network card is changed, the IP addressing will fail, but I accept that. It's not hard for me to change the MAC address reservation value in a DHCP server to match a new network card. Again, I'm a Microsoft/networking guy, not a copier tech. I don't want to get into the copier at all, if I can help it. Also, I don't want to tell these people to call in a copier tech to do what I think is a 2-minute settings change.

    Let me say this: in all my experiences in installing TCP/IP network printers, I've never had XP not recognize the print server network card, thus 'asking' for help from the installer to either select a card, or to install a 'custom' config, but I've never done support for a high-volume commercial copier, so maybe that's par for the course. Generally, I don't set up or fix devices in copy/print shops like Kinko's or Sir speedy, etc.

    Ok, once again... how should I proceed in configuring a new TCP/IP printer socket (socket= IP address+port, such as 192.168.22.47:9100) for these copiers? I can get machine serial numbers, etc., if necessary, but I'm dubious that data is needed.

    Thanks,

Hello oversight13,

It is not a good idea to use DHCP for your LAN printer(s) because if the DHCP server issues a different ip address to the printer, all user(s) in the network who prints to the printer will not be able to print anymore.

Use static ip address and assign one within your network ip address.

Secondly, the protocol on the printer and on the pc has to match (usually RAW protocol). So set it RAW on the LAN printer and RAW on printer setting on the pc.

Hope that helps and good luck.

Tcp/ip printing, well first you have to check if your printer has a good IP, lbetter if you place the printer to have a static IP address than DHCP. try the settings below

Printer IP:
192.168.001.xxx (printer IP)
255.255.255.0 -subnet mask class c
192.168.001.001 - gateway address same to all PCs

for the computer, just install the printer as a local printer using "standard TCP/IP port" then on custom, make sure you select LPR then set the printer's IP address to the Printer name or IP.

do make sure that the printer is pingable in the network once you place a static IP to it.

Through the keyboard in printer features,after entering ip address you must go to maintenance?restart printer?? give copier up to 5 mins to spit out config page..job done?
or or
If I understand your question properly I can help you. Press the "additional functions" button which is located to the right of the display about halfway down the the keypad. It has an asterisk look to it and what I believe is supposed to be a "look" of a human head. LOL. Press it and you will see a menu. Two columns appear. The last item of the left column should say system settings. Press it. I am doing this from memory so you may have improvise as my memory sucks. Once you press system settings you should see a new menu, unless you IT guy has blocked access to these features as many do. In which case I cannot help. In the event you indeed do have access you should see a new menu. Since I do not have a machine in front of me we can struggle together. Once you have selected system settings you will see a new menu that the second column in the right should say "network settings".Press it. Then you will see on the second tab tcp /ip settings. Press it. At this point you can change the IP address settings. The area where you are now will also allow you to change the DNS server settings and just about everything you might want. Once you have made the changes you wish to make......back out by pressing reset till you get back to the main copy screen. Now in order for the changes you have made to take effect you must turn the machine off and back on using the power switch located at the right side of the copier, at the rear of the right side, about halfway down the machine.Turn the power off, wait a few seconds , then back on. Within 60 seconds the copier will accept the the new network changes . i hope this helps you and take care

Are you talking about creating a printer port in Windows to print to?

You can use a normal RAW 9100 port (just choose custom, and it will set it at that)
But I suggest setting the copier with a static IP.
By leaving it to DHCP, if you set any machine to use that address, if if "flops around" you'll lose the pointers to that address. Just go into the web interface on the copier to set the static IP.

Your question was just slightly confusing to read. I hope that's what you are asking for.

    Whoa, lots of info....

    I too and a Sys Admin, and not a copier tech. But I have 23 offices, and at least 50 copiers, so I know of what you speak.



    So lets do this the simple way.



    First as I mentioned, set the ip on the Canon to static, so it won't lose the target if DCHP hiccups.

    Do this through the web interface on the copier.

    Just open IE and go to that IP address that you listed. Go through the menus, and you will find the IP set. If you can't get to it through the web interface, set it at the copier.

    Once that is done, go on to the next

    This is actually one of the most important parts. Unless you have DNS doing the name resolve on this printer, it will do all kinds of wierd stuff in the network without a Static IP.



    Next delete any instances of the Canon in Printers and Faxes on the PC.

    Turn off "Automatically detect shared drives and printers" in Windows.

    Go to the Canon USA site and download the drivers for this copier if you don't have the disks. Just put them in a shared folder you know where they are.



    Now we can go about adding the printer.



    Go to your "Add Printer"

    Tell it to add a local printer, take off the check to automatically detect.

    When it asks you which port to print to, create a new TCP/IP port

    A lot of the newer Canons will show up once you put in the IP address of the copier. If it doesn't, just choose Custom, and leave it as RAW Port 9100 (Canons are thee best IMO)



    Once it has the port, tell it "Have Disk"

    Point it at the drivers you downloaded for the Canon. Being that it will have more then one model in the list, just match it to what you have.

    Once it installs it, go to properties on the printer, and tell it to "Ask printer" for the configuration (this is for drawers, finishers, staplers etc)

    Once all of that is in, you should be good to go.



    One thing I have found about copiers, is not to "Over think them"

    They will function like a normal printer, once you remove the "fluff".



    Hope this helps.



    But I have found sometimes the best way to fix a network printing problem is to not play with what's there, and just start from scratch.

    Most of the time it ends up with a much better finished product.

As one person suggested above, it is possible to share the printer between two machines. All you need to do is set it up as a TCP/IP printer and assign it an address (either through the DHCP server or by giving it a static IP address), then go into the two machines and add the printer as a network printer. When asked about the type of port to use, select Local TCP/IP port... and enter the IP address of the printer.

I recommend setting a reserved DHCP address through your router to insure that the printer keeps a constant address and to insure that the router does not accidentally try assigning the same address to something else and therefore cause an IP address conflict.

Tip

How to Check TCP/IP Configuraitons




The first step in the troubleshooting process is to check the TCP/IP settings. You can check it by using the IPCONFIG/All command on the command prompt. You will see the configuration results. If you see a blank configuration for a card this means then the card is not assigned any IP address. You can assign the IP address manually or via DHCP server. If you are using the DHCP server for assigning the IP addresses then you can use the following commands to get and release the IP address.
IPConfig/Release
IPConfig/Renew
IPConfig/All
If the computer is still unable to obtain an IP address, then there are several things that can causing this problem such as bad network cable or NIC card, DHCP server might have assigned all the IP addresses from its pool, mis-configured TCP/IP settings, incorrect user name and password. You can try to add a new well configured machine to the replace the malfunctioning machine to see if the new machine is working with its settings. Also see if the driver of the NIC is properly installed or not. In case of driver's problem go to the vendor's website and install a new exact driver for the NIC.

Find proxy server address


Changing TCP/IP settings Win 7 TCP/IP defines how your computer communicates with other computers.
To make it easier to manage TCP/IP settings, we recommend using automated Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). DHCP automatically assigns Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to the computers on your network, if your network supports it. If you use DHCP, then you don't have to change your TCP/IP settings if you move your computer to another location, and DHCP doesn't require you to manually configure TCP/IP settings, such as Domain Name System (DNS) and Windows Internet Name Service (WINS). To enable DHCP or change other TCP/IP settings, follow these steps:
  1. Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, typeadapter, and then, under Network and Sharing Center, click View network connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to change, and then click Properties. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b_48.jpg If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  5. To specify IPv6 IP address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IPv6 address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify an IP address, click Use the following IPv6 address, and then, in the IPv6 address, Subnet prefix length, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
  6. To specify DNS server address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get a DNS server address automatically using DHCP, click Obtain DNS server address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify a DNS server address, click Use the following DNS server addresses, and then, in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server boxes, type the addresses of the primary and secondary DNS servers.

How to turn on a dhcp on a rca model dcm425 cable modem?


Hi there,
Enabling DHCP at the Client To enable the Windows NT DHCP client, you must log on as administrator at the Windows NT client.

Normally, you enable DHCP as part of the installation procedure for Microsoft TCP/IP, however, you can use this procedure if you have manually configured TCP/IP:
  1. Run Control Panel and choose Network.

    The Network Settings dialog box appears.
  2. Under Installed Network Software, select TCP/IP Protocol and then choose configure.

    The TCP/IP configuration dialog box appears.
  3. Select Enable Automatic DHCP Configuration.

    A Microsoft (MS) TCP/IP message appears, indicating that the DHCP Protocol attempts to configure the server automatically during system initialization.
  4. Choose Yes.

    A MS TCP/IP Configuration dialog box appears, displaying current TCP/IP configuration parameters. The IP Address and Subnet Mask boxes are not available (grayed out) and the manually configured values are no longer displayed.
  5. Choose OK to return to the Network Settings dialog box.
  6. Choose OK again.
  7. Shut down and restart the computer.
To enable DHCP on a Windows for Workgroups client if TCP/IP is not installed yet:
  1. Use Network Setup to install the MS TCP/IP-32 3.11 protocol.
  2. In the MS TCP/IP Configuration dialog box, select the Enable Automatic DHCP Configuration check box, and choose Continue.
  3. Restart the computer to initialize TCP/IP using DHCP.
To enable DHCP on a Windows for Workgroups client if TCP/IP is installed:
  1. To access the Network Drivers dialog box, run Network Setup.
  2. Select Microsoft TCP/IP-32 3.11, and then choose Setup.
  3. In the MS TCP/IP Configuration dialog box, select the Enable Automatic DHCP Configuration check box, and choose continue.

    A message box appears indicating that the configuration of DHCP overrides any values established locally.
  4. Choose Yes.
  5. To initialize TCP/IP using DHCP information, restart the computer.

I followed this suggestion and now the IP address is 0.0.0.0. I can not get to the printer setting. I don't know if the DHCP setting still remained as static instead of dynamic. ANY SUGGESTION?


I had the same problem, after removing the DHCP settings, maybe for an error during the configuration the printer didn't assume the new IP address and it resulted 0.0.0.0 from the configuration page.
No way to connect to the printer until I did a network card reset following this procedure:

************************************
7. Network Card Reset:
a. Turn the printer off.
b. Open the front cover.
c. Hold down the Continue and the Cancel button while powering the printer on.
d. Release the buttons when the Error light (bottom light) stays on solid.
e. Close the front cover and the printer should return to a READY state.
f. Press and release the continue button to print a network settings page.
g. On the page that prints verify the following:
�� Status = Not Connected
�� Active = Yes
�� DHCP,BOOTP,RARP Enabled = Yes, Yes, Yes
�� Address Source = Manual
�� Address = 0.0.0.0
************************************

The printer took a new IP address from the DHCP server.
Since my goal was to set a fixed IP address, I entered the printer configuration through Internet explorer, typing the newly assumed IP address and going to TCP/IP settings where I removed The 'Auto DHCP' and I set the IP address I wanted.
