    When there is a primary server at the dial-up destination For local networks with file servers: Primary file server Dial-up File (primary print server) router server Dial-up router Printer Local network Remote 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.
  • Page 95 When the primary server is down during operation 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 off the printer with the interface card once.
