Old 'Axis 150' Print server ?


I have an old 'Axis 150' print server that I've used for ages at home to allow all three computers to access the printers (all are running WINxx with ethernet).

Recently I took the plunge and started playing/fighting with Linux.

The Axis 150 (now discontinued) is designed it seems for M$/Netware networks, there is no IP address from the unit only a 6 byte NODE_ADDR.

I have the NODE address of the unit and the print server name. How to get my Linux box to recognise these to allow me to access my printers?

Being very little in the way of info. on this particular print server, is there anyone here set up a similar unit that could advise?

...later,
peteheff.

They also work well on *nix networks using the LPD spool protocols.

I still have to set them up using telnet, but that's all documented.
Do you still have a book?

That sound like good news..just need to get my head around telenet then. If you have any pointers to get me going I'd appreciate them.

I'll D/L the manual and have a read through it, thanks.

Once you can talk to it with the window$ software, you can set up the telnet side, turn it on, and connect on it's ip number port 23.

The menus are easy to follow...

Ther are several versions of the 150 if memory serves me well & mine is on the other side of the globe so I can't jump to it and check connections...

I managed to print using this print server by installing windows 95 into virtual machine on Linux powered computer.

Just install windows 95 under virtualbox, with bridged virtual network card.

Under win95:
Install AXIS Print monitor - still available at Axis website (sorry, I can't post the link)
Add tcp/ip protocol and enable file and printer sharing over it.
Add your network printer as described in Axis 150 user manual (150um.pdf) on axis website (sorry, I can't post the link) - this printer actually appears as local printer.
Share your newly added printer over network.

Under Linux:
Add shared windows network printer.
