Question about GigaFast Ethernet EE171-PR Print Server

1 Answer


The device status reads as "offline" even though all the cables are connected & the lights are OK...I cannot print...I had a different printer (brother mfc-4420) connected & it worked fine... the new printer (lexmark X-75) is not the unsupported printers list so it should work... thanks,

Find the port you've setup then click on Configure Port. In the block titled Port Name you'll need to enter the name of the Gigafast Print Server. It's normally 1P_PrintServ??????.

Our Ricoh MP 171 devices go offline after one

have you tried doing a local connect using a crossover cable to the printer to see if it is the printer or the 2k3 server?
I have seen this issue when terminal services are enabled on the server.
if when you connect locally to the device using x-over it still does it it may need to have the nib firmware updated, however if it doesnt I would run a packet sniffer on the network jack that the device is plugged into and check to make sure that the port is good and transmitting and receiving all packets check the network cable and replace that and if all else fails try the device on a different network port.
