Question about Extended Systems Pocket Print Server
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.
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.

Ethernet address of the PocketPrintServer. To do this, use the
