However, the command statuses sent by the printer are ignored because the printing by lpr or  ftp applies only to output of the printer.

  • Page 76: Monitoring Of The Asb Status

    Monitoring of the ASB status The ASB status function of the printer is used for the UB‐R03 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‐R03 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‐R03. Or retransmit the command that makes the ASB status function  effective again. More than one connection demands The UB‐R03 accepts up to six connection demands from LPR/Port9100. However, the TM printer  can print only the first accepted connection. Other connection demands enter the standby status until the connection being printing is closed. When more than one connection is demanded and the host printer leaves the connection open  after printing is complete, or the connection is cut without being closed because of some error,  other connecting demands are not processed until the time‐out of connection. Close the connection at once after finishing printing by an application. The time-out of connection can be set with TMNet WebConfig. (Software version 2.10 or later) The default value is 5 minutes.
