Installation Planning Guide
Ethernet local area network (LAN) running TCP/IP, AppleTalk,
or Novell NetWare network protocol.
Token Ring running TCP/IP, Novell, or AppleTalk network
Both network client workstations and the IBM host can
communicate with the controller over a network.
Users of networked client workstations may send print jobs to the
DocuPrint NPS/IPS printer over the Ethernet LAN using TCP/IP,
AppleTalk using EtherTalk Link Access Protocol (ELAP), or
Novell NetWare 3.1x as the network protocol.
Regardless of printing or transmission protocol, the Ethernet
connection to the printer controller must be
compatible with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics
Engineers (IEEE) 802.3 standard.
Users of network client workstations may send print jobs to the
printer over Token Ring network using TCP/IP, Novell 3.x, or
AppleTalk network protocol.
Regardless of printing transmission protocol, the Token Ring
connection to the printer controller must be compatible with the
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.5
Multiple network devices
Multiple network devices may be installed on the same controller.
The default network device that ships with your controller is a
100 Mbit Ethernet connection. You may install other network
devices by installing additional network cards, provided each
card has a unique network to which it connects. For example, if
you use a Token Ring network connection, you have the option of
using the default Ethernet device as a secondary network.
If you choose to install multiple network devices on your
controller, the following parameters apply:
