Network client components
You must select a primary network device and designate any
others as secondary. The primary network device does not
have to be the default Ethernet device that ships with your
controller; it can be any of the network devices installed.
You must run the TCP/IP protocol on the primary network
device. You may also run TCP/IP on other network devices.
For each network device running TCP/IP, you must specify a
unique IP address and IP netmask. For the primary network
device, you must specify the HostName and router IP
address. The HostName for any secondary devices is
created from the name chosen for the primary device.
NOTE: You may not use the controller as an IP router.
Consequently, the router IP address must be on the primary
network devices network only.
You may run the AppleTalk protocol on only one network
device. The network device on which AppleTalk is run does
not have to be the primary network device.
You may run Novell protocols on only the primary network
To send print jobs to the NPS/IPS printer, the customer needs to
provide the proper client hardware as well as operating system
and network software.
