Note: The primary server described in this manual indicates a primary time server which offers time to the workstations on the network. Using a dial-up network in each mode Print Server mode You must use a dedicated dial-up line.

  • Page 96: When There Is A Primary Server At The Dial-up Destination

    When there is a primary server at the dial-up destination For local networks with file servers: File server Printer Local network When the power is turned on A dial-up is generated because access is made to a local file server first and then to a primary server. This is not a problem since this dial-up only occurs at startup.

  • Page 97

    A dial-up is generated because a connection to the primary server is attempted periodically. Since this is attributable to the automatic re-connection function, turn the printer with the interface card off and on. When the file server on the local network is down When there is no file server on the local network, NetWare cannot be used on the local network.
