NONE means that there is no encrypted authentication and data is transmitted without encryption.
OPEN activates encryption of data and still works with unencrypted authentication.
SHARED activates both encrypted data and authentication.
BOTH activates both encrypted data and authentication but tries as well to authenticate without encryption if
the ﬁrst try failed.
Afterwards you have to set the connection mode in
network, set the mode to AUTOMATIC (DHCP), otherwise set it to MANUAL.
If you choose MANUAL, you will be prompted to enter an IP address and a subnet mask. Enter the IP address
you want your Crystal printer to have. Make sure that the address is in the subnet of your local network. Finally
set the subnet mask on the device to your local network's subnet mask.
After having set all the parameters on your Crystal printer, leave the menu. After leaving the menu the adapter will
be reconﬁgured and the printer is available in the network. Now it should be possible to establish a connection
to the Crystal printer. You can test this by using the ping command with the IP address of the printer (e.g. ping
