Gaining access to Printerserver?


Dear All

I have bought a printerserver box PUN1200, from x-net.com.tw, that contains 2x parallel and 1x USB.
I have put my printer in the USB port.
For Windows there is a CD with an administrator program, that also sets up the computer to print to the server.
But the idear whas also to print form my server running RedHat 9.0.

But my problem is, if I try to add a printer "JepDirect" what port will my printer be at? normaly I use 9100 as port, when that is for my other network printer, that contrians a RJ-45 interface build in the printer.
or sould I try to connect as SMB?
According to the x-net.com.tw the printer server supports all UNIX, Linux, AppleTalk and so on.

But there is no instructions for setup on a Linux computer.

The program that comes from the manufactore to windows, makes a LPT:PS####-X port the diffres from computer to computer.

pls. help.

Regards

You need to set up a network printer, in CUPS select IPP as the protocol.

I used this for referance
http://linuxline.epfl.ch/Doc/beta/RH...p-printer.html

It dosn't work, I might do something wrong :-)
What I know is that the printer is connected to PID2 on the printerserver box.
What I did was to write the IP address of the box, and choose the correct printer from the list.
I just dosn't print :-) I can see on my switch that they are talking, and then nothing happen.
I then try to print from my windows meachine, and it works.

any suggestions ?
regards

Not familiar with your specific printserver, but here are some general points on how to set one up.

Usually, some cryptic documentation comes with the printserver, but yours doesn’t seem to have any. Open the configuration page for the printserver using your web browser, usually by entering the IP address. Typically, one setup category would be for “logical printers”, which is what you want.

Each printer port will be given a logical name (e.g., l1, l2, lpr, etc.) and the port names vary by manufacturer. Add a new printer in RHL and select “networked unix printer (lpd)” as the queue type. The rest of the setup is specific to your printer’s capabilities. Under “server”, enter its IP address and under “queue”, enter the logical name associated with the USB port on your printserver.

Hopefully, that gets you going. Printservers are wonderful devices on a windows/linux network.

thank you, but accordig to the manual the printerserver, the different ports are labled PID1, PID2, PID3.
I have made a portscan, and the printerserver have port
22 -> telnet
80 -> http
515 ->printer
631 ->ipp

Have have tried everycombination possible with CUPS and IPP under redhat.
I even tried to define the ports witch to print.
I am very lost
Under Windows you add a 'Network printer port' and then there comes a diaglog box up, and you enter the ip address and select PID # 2 (where my printer is) and then it works.

But nothing seems to work under Redhat

I on the brink to nuke my redhat server, and reinstall it again, but install everything on the system, and then try again, but I come on this schouldn be windows I am working on.

Any suggestions?

Regards

My printservers support IPP, too, but defy setup under IPP in RHL9. That’s why they are configured as logical printers in RHL9. They work fine using IPP in windows.

Have you tried setting it up as a Networked UNIX (LPD) printer? If what you are doing isn’t working, why not try something else? That’s why mine are set up as logical printers, because I got frustrated with IPP.

RedHat > System Settings > Printing > New > Name it > Queue: Networked UNIX (LPD), Server: IP address; Queue: PID2

pun1200

Hello,

I have been struggling to get a printer attached to the PUN1200 printing from a Linux machine as well.
Finally I got it printing through IPP through CUPS

The queue names for IPP printing are lp1 , lp2, lp3 (it is in fact in the PDF manual on the CD on page 31 chapter 4-3?)

In cups (web interface..) choose device Internet Printing protocol (http) and enter the URI as follows http://IP address of the PUN1200/lp1 (or lp2 or lp3) my printer is on the parallel port so I used lp1

It is now shown in CUPS as http://ip address of the pun1200:80/lp1...

After that CUPS requests you to install the appropriate driver for your printer and it should work...
