Follow the procedure below to connect the machine as a print server using NetWare 3.x.
Start Web Image Monitor.
A dialog box for entering the login user name and password appears.
Enter the login user name and password, and then click [Login].
For details about the login user name and password, consult your network administrator.
Click [Configuration] in the left area, and then click [NetWare Print Settings].
Print Server Name: Enter the NetWare print server name. To use the interface board as a print server, enter the name of a print server that is not active on the file server. Use up to 47 characters.
Logon Mode: Specify whether to designate a file server or NDS tree when logging on to NetWare.
File Server Name: When a file server name is entered here, only the specified file server is searched for. This item is mandatory. Use up to 47 characters.
NDS Tree: To enable NDS mode, enter the name of the NDS tree you want to log on to. Use up to 32 alphanumeric characters.
NDS Context Name: To enable NDS mode, enter the print server context. Use up to 127 characters.
Operation Mode: Specify whether to use the interface board as a print server or a remote printer.
Remote Printer No.: This item is effective when the interface board is specified as a remote printer. Enter the same number as the number of the printer to be created on the print server (0 to 254 characters).
Job Timeout: When the interface board is used as a NetWare remote printer, the printer cannot detect when a print job ends. Therefore, the printer terminates printing when a certain period of time has elapsed since it last received print data (i.e., when it has not received print data for a certain period of time). Specify here this period of time (3 to 255 seconds). The initial value is 15 (seconds).
Frame Type: Select the frame type from the drop-down menu.
Print Server Protocol: Select the protocol for NetWare from the drop-down menu.
NCP Delivery Protocol: Select the protocol for NCP delivery.
Confirm the settings, and then click [Device Name].
Configuration is now complete. Wait several before restarting Web Image Monitor.
To check the configuration is correct, enter the following from the command prompt:
If the printer works as configured, the name of the print server appears as a connected user.
If you cannot identify the printer you want to configure, check the printer name against the configuration page printed from the printer.
If no printer names appear in the list, match the frame types of IPX/SPXs for the computer and printer. Use the [Network] dialog box of Windows to change the frame type of the computer.
