CHAPTER 10 BANYAN VINES NETWORK CONFIGURATION CHAPTER TEN BANYAN VINES Network Configuration Printing from Banyan Vines Systems Overview Brother print servers allow printers to be shared on a Banyan VINES network. Users on client PCs send their jobs to any VINES file server running the Banyan PCPrint software, which in turn spools the jobs to the print server.
CHAPTER 10 BANYAN VINES NETWORK CONFIGURATION File Server User Console The first step in the configuration process is to configure the file server so that the Brother print server can log into the Banyan VINES network. To do this, you will need to configure a StreetTalk user name for the print server (all VINES print servers log into the file server as users).
CHAPTER 10 BANYAN VINES NETWORK CONFIGURATION File Server Queue Configuration You must now configure the queue(s) on the Banyan VINES file servers. Print queues are one of several different types of services that are available on a VINES file server. To configure a print queue, use the MANAGE utility as follows: 1.
CHAPTER 10 BANYAN VINES NETWORK CONFIGURATION 12. When you get the Destination Attributes screen, enter the StreetTalk name of the Brother print server and an optional description. Press F10. 13. You will get the Output strings menu. This screen allows you to define strings of characters that can be sent before and after the print job to put the printer in a particular state (for example, duplex mode).
CHAPTER 10 BANYAN VINES NETWORK CONFIGURATION Print Server Configuration Using BRAdmin The last step is to add the StreetTalk login name to the Brother print server and to associate the file server queue with one of the services on the print server. The procedure is as follows: 1.
CHAPTER 10 BANYAN VINES NETWORK CONFIGURATION Print Server Configuration Using the Print Server Console As an alternative to BRadmin, you may use the print server console to configure the print server. The steps are as follows: 1. Connect to the print server console using TELNET, NCP, BRCONFIG Execute some or all of the commands detailed below (you must minimally enter the StreetTalk login name of the print server and associate one of the print server services with the StreetTalk name of a...
CHAPTER 11 WEB BASED MANAGEMENTR CHAPTER ELEVEN Web Based Management How to use a Web Browser to manage your Device Overview A standard World Wide Web Browser (we recommend Netscape Navigator version 4.0 or later/Microsoft Internet Explorer version 4.0 or later) can be used to manage your printer using the HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol).
CHAPTER 11 WEB BASED MANAGEMENTR How to connect to your printer using a Browser Type "http://printers IP Address /" into your browser (you can also use the NetBIOS name of the print server, if you are in Microsoft Windows domain/Workgroup environment). Enter the DNS name of the printer if connecting to a network that uses the DNS protocol.
CHAPTER 12 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION CHAPTER TWELVE TCP/IP Configuration Assigning TCP/IP Information Overview The TCP/IP protocol requires that each device on the network have it's own unique IP address. Use the following information to learn about IP address configuration. By default Brother print servers have a sample IP address of 184.108.40.206, however, you can easily change this IP address number to match with the IP address details of your network.
CHAPTER 12 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION Using the printer control panel to allocate an IP address (printers with LCD panels only) Refer to the Quick Setup Guide for details on how to configure IP address information using the printer control panel. By using the control panel of the printer, you can program the IP address details at the same time that other printer parameters are configured.
CHAPTER 12 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION Using BRAdmin and the IPX/SPX Protocol to set the IP address If your PC has Novell Netware Client software and is using the IPX/SPX protocol, do the following: 1. Select IPX/SPX filter in the left frame of the main window. 2.
CHAPTER 12 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION Using BRAdmin and the TCP/IP Protocol to set the IP address If your PC has only the TCP/IP protocol, do the following: 1. Select TCP/IP filter in the left frame of the main window. 2. Select the "Device" menu and choose the "Search Active Devices". If the print server is set to its factory default settings, it will not appear in the BRAdmin screen, however, when you select the "Search Active Devices"...
CHAPTER 12 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION Using ARP to Configure the Print Server IP Address If you are unable to use the BRAdmin application, printer control panel and your network does not use a DHCP server, you can also use the ARP command. ARP is the simplest method of configuring the print server IP address.
CHAPTER 12 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION Using RARP to Configure the IP Address Brother print server IP address can be configured using the Reverse ARP (rarp) facility on your host computer. This is done by editing the /etc/ethers file (if this file does not exist, you can create it) with an entry similar to the following: 00:80:77:31:01:07 BRN_310107 Where the first entry is the Ethernet address of the print server and the second...
CHAPTER 12 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION Using BOOTP to Configure the IP Address BOOTP is an alternative to rarp that has the advantage of allowing configuration of the subnet mask and gateway. In order to use BOOTP to configure the IP address make sure that BOOTP is installed and running on your host computer (it should appear in the /etc/services file on your host as a real service;...
CHAPTER 12 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION Configuring the IP Address with DEC NCP or BRCONFIG Users of DEC and Novell networks have additional alternatives for configuring the IP address of Brother print servers by using the remote console facility. On VMS systems, you will need to have DECNET running in order to use the remote console.
CHAPTER 12 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION On a NetWare networks, you can use the BRCONFIG utility which are included with every print server. If you are using the remote console, you will get the message Console connected (VMS) or Connection established (BRCONFIG) or Remote console reserved (ULTRIX).
CHAPTER 12 TCP/IP CONFIGURATION Changing the IP Address settings with the TELNET Console You can also use the TELNET command to change the IP address. Using TELNET is effective way, when you change the IP address. But a valid IP address must already be programmed into the print server.
CHAPTER 13 TROUBLESHOOTING CHAPTER THIRTEEN Troubleshooting Overview This chapter describes procedures for troubleshooting problems you may encounter with a Brother print server, it is divided into the following sections: 1. Installation Problems 2. Intermittent Problems 3. Protocol-Specific Troubleshooting 13-1...
