  • Page 23: Setting The Ub-E03

    Setting procedure Follow the steps below to set the IP address. • Because the same IP address is set for all UB-E03 units in the factory, do not connect more than one UB-E03 whose IP address is not changed from the factory setting. When you set the IP address, connect the UB-E03 to the network and set the IP address one by one.
  • Page 24 If you have connected more than one printer to the network and do not know for which printer you want to set the IP address, you can check the printer by finding out the MAC address of the UB-E03. The MAC address can be found on the status sheet or a label on the UB-E03.
  • Page 25 Chapter 2 Set up Select [Manual] or [Auto]. • Manual: Input for [IP Address], [Subnet Mask], and [Default Gateway]. • Auto: The IP address, subnet mask, and default gate way are acquired form DHCP server. • Do not use the auto setting without a DHCP server. See the manual of the server for setting. • Be sure that the [Set using PING] check box is checked if a setting by ping or arp command is permitted.
  • Page 26 Click the [OK] button. The contents of the setting are transmitted to the UB‐E03. After a while, when following message is displayed, the IP address setting is completed.

  • Page 50: Commands Sent To A Tm Printer When The Power Is On

    Monitoring of the ASB Status The ASB status function of the printer is used for the UB‐E03 to check the state of the printer.  Therefore, when the transmission data from the application includes the command to nullify the  ASB status function, the UB‐E03 cannot control the state of the printer. Take care not to transmit the command to nullify the ASB status function to check the state of the  printer correctly by the UB‐E03. Or retransmit the command that makes the ASB status function  effective again. The Rights of Printing The UB‐E03 permits up to 3 requests of connecting regardless of the lpr/port9100 protocol. The  TM printer can print only the first accepted connection. Data transmission is blocked for other  requests until the first connection is closed (explicit close or close by time‐out). Time-out for Connection If there is no data transmitted from the host for 5 minutes, regardless of the protocol, lpr/ port9100, the UB‐E03 closes the connection. The time-out of connection can be set with EPSON TMNet WebConfig. The default value is 5 minutes (300 seconds).
