Chapter 3 Peer-to-Peer Printing (Windows 95/98)

In a LAN, which has no print server but consists only of Windows 95/98 computers, those computers and
printers can be connected in the form called “peer-to-peer”.
As peer-to-peer printing uses the network protocol TCP/IP, the KN-304 Network Board must be set up for
TCP/IP in advance. For each of the Windows 95/98 computers that perform peer-to-peer printing, it is
needed to set up TCP/IP, install and set up [IP-P2P] included in the CD-ROM provided, and set up the
printer driver.

■ Basic TCP/IP setup


Select [Network] from the [Control Panel] of a Windows 95/98 computer that uses the Konica 7020 printer
via the KN-304 Network Board. Then the [Network] dialog box appears. Click the [Configuration] tab and
make sure that [TCP/IP] exists in the list of Current Network Components. If it is not found, add TCP/IP.
See Windows 95/98 Help or something else for how to add TCP/IP.
When [TCP/IP]exists in the [Current Network Components] list, make sure of the values of IP address, etc.
Select [TCP/IP] and click the [Properties] button. The [TCP/IP Properties] dialog box appears. Click the [IP
Address] tab and confirm or define the TCP/IP address and subnet mask assigned to the computer. Set up
on another panel as necessary. Click the [OK] button to return to the Network dialog box.
Next, click the [Identification] tab in the [Network] dialog box and confirm the name given to the computer.
Click the [OK] button to finish the setup procedure.

Take care to determine the values of parameters.


Consult the network administrator to determine the values of parameters like the IP address. If
the IP address is inadequate, failures may occur in various locations in the network.

Chapter 4 Printing by lpd/lpr (Windows NT)

The KN-304 Network Board is provided with the standard print server protocol (lpd) for TCP/IP. So, you can
use TCP/IP print service (lpr) from a computer of Windows NT 4.0 and up (hereafter noted as Windows NT).
The network protocol used for printing by lpd/lpr is TCP/IP and therefore the KN-304 Network Board must
be set up for TCP/IP in advance.
For each of the Windows NT computers that perform printing by lpd/lpr, it is needed to set up TCP/IP,
Microsoft TCP/IP printing and printer driver.

■ Basic TCP/IP setup


Select [Network] from the [Control Panel] of a Windows NT computer that uses a printer via the KN-304
Network Board. Then the [Network] dialog box appears. Click the [Configuration] tab and make sure that
[TCP/IP Protocol] exists in the list of Network Protocols. If it is not found, add TCP/IP. See Windows NT
Help or something else for how to add TCP/IP.
When “TCP/IP” exists in the [Network Protocols] list, make sure of the values of IP address, etc. Select
[TCP/IP] and click the Properties button. The [Microsoft TCP/IP Properties] dialog box appears. Click the
[IP Address] tab and confirm or define the TCP/IP address and subnet mask assigned to the computer. Set
up on another panel as necessary. Click the [OK] button to return to the [Network] dialog box.
Next, click the [Identification] tab in the [Network] dialog box and confirm the name given to the computer.
Click the [OK] button to finish the setup procedure.

Chapter 5 NetWare Setup

To print with the Konica 7020 fitted with the KN-304 Network Board by using Novell NetWare, the setup
procedures depend on the NetWare version and the method of resource management.

■ Setup for NetWare 2.x/3.x


Before setting up NetWare, you have to define the print server name, etc., from the 7020’s control panel or
MAP (Web utility). See Chapter 6, Setup Utility MAP, for setting up NetWare by MAP. See the manual of
Novell NetWare for setting up with PCONSOLE.
The setup procedure of NetWare 2.x/3.x is as follows. To perform this procedure, you must be autorized as
supervisor.

Start up PCONSOLE and select the file server to use.

Generate and assign a print queue.

Define KN-304 as the print server.

Define the notification list/password as necessary.

Set up the primary file server as necessary.

On completion of setup, turn off printer’s main power and turn it on again. The printer will print out a network
setup list indicating the file servers fitted with KN-304 and the queues that the file servers will service.

MEMO
The primary file sever must be defined if the network is of a large scale and connects many sites
having more than one file server. PCONSOLE should be used to set up the primary file sever.

5-2 KN-304 Network Board


Chapter 5 NetWare Setup

■Setup for NetWare 4.x


Novell NetWare 4.x can operate in two modes, NetWare Directory Service (NDS) and Bindery Emulation
Service (Bindery Emulation). Bindery Emulation Service and NDS will be executed simultaneously. It is
also possible to set up the print server so that it operates only in Bindery Emulation Service mode or in NDS
mode.
The print server set up for NDS mode will also service the file server of an old version operating in Bindery
mode.

If NDS is not set up properly for the print server card and Bindery Service mode is not operating,
the print server card cannot find the file server and Novell NetWare protocol will be indicated as
inactive in the network setup list.

● Setup information
NDS
NetWare Directory Service (NDS) offers a different, more advanced approach to network
management than previous NetWare versions. Generally, it stores and tracks all network
objects. As a rule, all 4.x servers must have NDS loaded in order to function. In this way,
every NetWare 4.x server is a Directory server, because it services named Directory objects
such as printers, print server and print queues. With the appropriate privileges, you can
create a print server object, which, once configured in its context (or location) on the network,
eliminates the cumbersome setup of print servers on every network server. NDS provides
true enterprise networking based on a shared network database rather than a individually
defined physical sites. The result is greatly improved print server setup and management.

Bindery emulation
The Directory Information Base (DIB) is used to store information about servers and services,
users, printers, gateways, etc. It is a distributed database, allowing access to data anywhere
on the network wherever it is stored. Pre-4.x NetWare versions provide the same data found
in the DIB but thte data is stored in the NetWare Binery. The DIB was designed with more
flexible access, more specific security, and, since it is distributed, it was designed to be parti-
tioned.
The Directory uses an object-oriented structure, rather than the flat-file structure of the Bind-
ery, and offers network-oriented access, rather than server-oriented access found in the Bind-
ery.

KN-304 Network Board 5-3


Chapter 5 NetWare Setup

The Directory is backward-compatible with the NetWare Bindery through Bindery emulation
mode. Section 4.3 describes Print Server Operation with a 4.x NetWare system in bindery
emulation mode. When Bindery emulation is enabled, Directory Services will accept Bindery
requests and respond just as if a Bindery existed on the NetWare server being accessed. Be
aware that information obtained from the Bindery query may not be stored in the server since
the Directory is a partitioned and distributed database. Even though the NetWare 4.x server
is not operating from a Bindery, the applications making Bindery requests will not know the
difference.

● NDS setup
Web utility
This is used for context setup of the KN-304 print server. See “Chapter 6, Setup Utility MAP”,
for more detail.

Novell NWADMIN
Novell NWADMIN (NetWare Administration) is used to generate a directory tree and print
queue objects in the print server, printer and tree.
The KN-304 is provided with a plug-and-play feature to support NetWare administration utility
(NWADMIN) that enables the NDS administrator to perform centralized management of print
servers.
Refer to the Novell NetWare manual for details of Setup with NWADMIN.

PCONSOLE
NetWare allows of the use of PCONSOLE as an alternative of NWADMIN. PCONSOLE is
used to set up static information of print servers, like which of the queues to service, to whom
information is to be given in case of trouble.
Refer to the Novell NetWare manual for details of setup with PCONSOLE of NDS.

Chapter 5 NetWare Setup

● Setup for Bindery Emulation


Make sure of the Bindery Context.
Before connecting the KN-304 print server to the Novell NetWare 4.x server of bindery mode,
make sure that the NetWare server contains the bindery context.
If the bindery context does not exist, the network administrator should modify the
AUTOEXEC.NCF file to add an adequate SET command and restart the NetWare server or
enter a SET command from the console prompt to make changes.

Note that any command entered following the console prompt is effective immediately but the
definition of the autoexec file becomes effective only after turning off power and on again.

Perform the following procedure to check if the contains the bindery context.

Log-in to the file server by the name of ADMIN.

Respond to the MS-DOS prompt with TYPE Z:\SYSTEM\AUTOEXEC.NCF.

When the file contents are displayed, see if a line exists that is something as follows.
SET BINDERY CONTEXT=0=<Name>
=0= denotes the file server context. Use the actual file server context.
<Name> identifies the server context and can be found when PCONSOLE is activated as it is
indicated at top left in the Available Items menu window.
If no name is defined, the KN-304 does not work. A name must be defined first of all. For this
purpose, terminate PCONSOLE and add the following line in the AUTOEXEC file by using a
text editor.
SET BINDERY CONTEXT=0=KONICA_CORP

After adding the line, turn off power and restart the server. Now the modification is effective.

Alternatively, the network administrator can enter a SET command from the console prompt
to make immediate modifications. At this time, all modifications are lost once the server is
turned off and restarted.

Note that any command following the console prompt is effective immediately but the definition
of the autoexec file becomes effective only after the system is restarted after turning off power.

KN-304 Network Board 5-5


Chapter 5 NetWare Setup

Setup with PCONSOLE in bindery mode


If it is sure that the bindery context exists in the file server, you set up the KN-304 with
PCONSOLE.
Refer to the Novell NetWare manual for details of setup with PCONSOLE.

In Bindery mode, only upper-case letters are valid for the printer server password.

Chapter 6 Setup Utility MAP

■MAP (Management Access Program) overview


It is possible to change printer settings through access to the HTTP server, incorporating a Web utility,
mounted on the KN-304 Network Board. The CD-ROM provided contains a utility named MAP. MAP allows
to detect KN-304 Network Boards on the network and list them up by using a Web browser. You can select
one out of the list of the KN-304s to change its settings and operate the Web utility from the Web browser.

● Requirements for installation


MAP is a utility operating on Windows 95/98/NT/2000. It detects KN-304s existing in the network and
establishes connection with the HTTP server mounted on a KN-304. One of the following Web browsers is
needed for interface as MAP does not have a means of interface.
• Netscape Navigator (version 4.x and up)
• Internet Explorer (version 4.x and up)
Therefore TCP/IP must be set up for both the KN-304 and Windows computer. The IPX protocol must also
be set up to search KN-304s that use IPX.

● Installing MAP
Install MAP by the following procedure.

Set the CD-ROM provided in the CD-ROM drive and double-click [Setup.exe] in the [Map]
folder.

The setup program starts. Confirm the information displayed and click the [Next] button.

Confirm the folder in which MAP is to be installed. The default is C:\Program Files\MAP. Click
the [Next] button, and installation will proceed with the associated files copied.

■MAP setup
The MAP setup program installs two programs, MAP Setup and MAP. MAP Setup is the program used to
set up the environment for MAP to detect KN-304. Execute MAP Setup first.
To start MAP Setup, select [Start] - [Programs] - [Map] - [MAP Setup]. Once MAP Setup starts, the following
window appears.

In MAP setup, the protocol used by the KN-304 detected on startup of MAP, and the IP maximum hop
count, should be designated. To detect the KN-304 that uses IPX, check the “Search IPX printer” box. To
detect the KN-304 that uses IP, check the “Search IP printer” box.
To use IP as the network protocol, the Max Hops for IP Search should be designated. The default of Max
Hops for IP Search (0-15) is 2. When the value is set at 0, search will be exercised only in the segment to
which the computer that has activated MAP belongs. When the value is 2, the network will be searched
everywhere accessible via up to two routers. Note that the greater the value of maximum hop count, the
more traffics generated.

■ LED Status Indicator


The KN-304 has two LED status indicators: amber and green. The amber LED generally indicates job
activity; it flashes when a print job is being communicated to the Print Server Card; it is off when no activity
is occurring.
The green LED indicates the operating condition of the KN-304 when it is powered on during normal opera-
tion. The following table provides the conditions that this LED may indicate.

■ Status Page
The Status page is sent as a print job to the printer when the KN-304 is powered on. For example, the
report on the next page shows the configuration of the KN-304 immediately before the report is printed.
Konica 7020 printer also allows you to use a command from the LCD panel that will produce a status report.
it is strongly recommended that you review this report immediately after installation and any time the setup
has been changed. If the report does not include a protocol that was configured, check that the procedure
was done properly.

■Resetting the KN-304 Factory Default


You can cause the KN-304 to restore all parameters to factory default values, so the Print Server Card
appears just as it came from the factory. You may choose to do this when the Print Server Card is moved
to a new location where the environment (NetWare file servers, IP subnets, and so on) is different.
This process is called “Reset to Factory”. It can be done with MAP or a Web Browser. However, if network
access is not possible, the following method may be used.

Note: Resetting to factory default means that the print server loses all data such as names and IP ad-
dresses. It does not lose its serial number or MAC address.

Chapter 7 Troubleshooting

■How to Diagnose Problems


Use the following list to determine the cause of printing problems:
1. Verify that the printer is functioning properly.
• Is the printer printing? Make sure the printer is operating properly by causing it to generate a test page.
See your printer’s owner’s manual for instructions on generating a test page.
• Is the printer on-line (green LED should light)*? Verify that the printer is on-line or else nothing will print.
*Status at about 2 minutes after power-on.
• Does the LCD panel of Konica 7020 display an error message? Review Konica 7020 manual.
• Did you get a KN-304 status page? On power-up, the KN-304 sends a status page which may contain
information that can be useful for troubleshooting. Keep the status page available until a problem is
resolved.
2. Check the KN-304’s LED status indicator to ensure that there is no error condition. See LED Status
Indicator, for more information.
3. Check the status report to see what protocols are enabled and active. See the appropriate chapter to
confirm that you have installed and configured your network protocol correctly for the KN-304. See
Status Page for an example of the status page.
4. Determine if other users can print. If they can’t and they are all on the same NOS, go to the troubleshoot-
ing section for that NOS.
5. When you have determined the nature of the problem, use the checklists in the next section.

Chapter 7 Troubleshooting

●Troubleshooting Network Hardware Connections


• For 100BaseT or 10BaseT, check that the network connector is plugged into the RJ connector on the
KN-304.
• Try another cable to make sure you do not have a bad cable.

●Troubleshooting NetWare Protocol


It is recommended you use MAP to get the NetWare setup and parameter values. If you have not resolved
the problem after running MAP, go through the checklists in this section.

●NetWare Checklist
• Is the print server name entered correctly? The factor-default name is KON_serial number. The
serial number is located on the card.
• Did you assign print queues to the printer? It is recommended you assign each print queue to only
one Print Server Card-connected printer. If print queues are assigned to other network printers, the
print jobs may be going to an other network printer.
• Did you assign the printer to the type Remote Other /Unknown?
• If the PCONSOLE settings are correct, the connection between the printer and network may have
been broken. Turn the printer off and, using PCONSOLE, wait for the status message Not Con-
nected. Turn the printer on and the status should change to Waiting for Job.

KN-304 Network Board 7-7


Chapter 7 Troubleshooting

●File Server Checklist


• Is there enough disk space on the file server and is it running?
• Is the correct file server associated with the printer? Use PCONSOLE to check this.
• Did you have the proper rights to configure the printer? (supervisor or administrator)
• Are the File Server and the KN-304 communicating? Run NetWare’s COMCHECK utility from any
network workstation to check this.
• Are there enough user positions on the File Server? The Print Server function logs on as a user.

●Workstation Checklist
• Is the network loaded onto the workstation? See the NetWare documentation.
• Is the application set up to print to the printer? For instance, are you using the correct driver?
• Is the workstation connected to the correct print queue? Print a file and verify that the file goes to the
queue.
• Are the print queues assigned to the KN-304-connected printer also assigned to another network
printer? If they are, the print jobs may be going to that printer.
• From PCONSOLE, enter a sample print job directly into an assigned queue. Does the job become
Active? Is job printed?
• Is AUTO ENDCAP enabled? Auto Endcap lets you send data to a network printer. Use PRINTCON to
check. If not, enable it.

●Print Server Card Configuration Checklist


If all your hardware connections are correct, check the following:
• Use MAP to check the status of the print server. The Unit Status screen shows the status for the
selected network interface card. This report includes a status of file servers and queues assigned to a
printer along with a description of any problems.
• The printer may not be assigned to the correct print queues. Use PCONSOLE to direct print jobs to the
correct queues, then check to see if the print job is in the queue.
• If devices were added or changed, use PCONSOLE to make sure you configured the new devices
correctly.
• Make sure the KN-304’s name has been entered correctly. If you changed the name in MAP, you must

7-8 KN-304 Network Board


Chapter 7 Troubleshooting

also change the name in PCONSOLE before you can print.


• Use PCONSOLE to check the Printer Status. Make sure it is not stopped or paused.
• You cannot use PCONSOLE Version 1.0 to configure the network interface card. Connect Novell for an
upgrade.

●Printer Server/File Server/Printer Checklist


Check the following to see if:
• The KN-304 Print Server can log into the file server, and can service jobs from a File Server.
• The KN-304 Print Server name is listed on that File Server.
• The password assigned to the Print Server Card through PCONSOLE matches the password assigned
through MAP. Use MAP to update the password stored in the network Print Server’s memory.
• The print job is in the print queue and waiting to be printed. Use PCONSOLE to check if the print jobs
are being sent to the printer.

●Workstation to Print Server Card Connection Checklist


To make sure the workstation is communicating with the Print Server Card, check the following:
• Print a file from the workstation and make sure the print job gets to the print queue using PCONSOLE.
If the print job does get to the queue, the problem is not with the workstation/print server connection.
• Use CAPTURE to send data to the printer from a workstation software application. See your NetWare
print server manual for information.
• Make sure another printer is not taking the print jobs from the queues BEFORE the Print Server Card
can service the job. To do this, disable the other printer until you can verify the Print Server Card-
connected printer setup.

●KN-304 Loses Its File Server Connection


If the KN-304 loses its connection to the file server, it can take approximately 5 to 10 minutes to reconnect.
If the connection is not made after a reasonable amount of time, check the error conditions to troubleshoot
the problem.

KN-304 Network Board 7-9


Chapter 7 Troubleshooting

●Unable to Print from a Different Context


The KN-304 does not support printing from a context different from the context you are installed upon. If
you want to do this, you must create an alias queue. See your NetWare Manual for more information.

■ Information for the TCP/IP network administrator

● Use of DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a service that provides IPaddress assignment and mainte-
nance procedures. The KN-304 can get IPinformation from the service.
There are two user-definable variables related with the DHCP functions.You can set up those variables
from [Setup TCP/IP] of [Network Administration]provided by the Web utility.
• Enable DHCP
• IP address in NOVRAM
a. If you select [Not enable DHCP], the KN-304 does not call for the DHCPservice. If no IP address is
defined for the KN-304 or “Enable IP addressdefined” is OFF, the KN-304 attempts to get an IP address
by BOOTP requestor some other means.
b. If DHCP can be used and no IP address is defined for the KN-304 or[IP address in NOVRAM] is OFF,
the KN-304 calls for the DHCP when resetor power has turned on.
c. If DHCP can be used but an IP address is defined for the KN-304 and[IP address in NOVRAM] is ON,
the KN-304 gets IP information from NVRAMand does not use DHCP service.
Both of the options [Enable DHCP] and [IP address in NOVRAM] are ON by default (employed at shipment
time). In this case, if the IP identificationinformation stored in NVRAM is not available, the KN-304 gener-
ates a DHCPrequest.

When DHCP can be used and the default values are set for the KN-304, itis needed to set up
(reserve) so that the KN-304’s IP address be usedcontinually on the DHCP server, because
otherwise the same address might begiven to other hosts.

● Naming by WINS
Use of WINS for the KN-304
Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) allows registering the current IP address and NetBIOS name to
the KN-304. A client who wishes to communicate with the printer can use the WINS server to match the IP
address and NetBIOS name. For most users, it is easier to remember the printer’s NetBIOS name than the
IP address.
To use WINS for the KN-304, it is needed to enter the IP address of the WINS server by “TCP/IP Setup” of
the Web utility.

Setting for the WINS server


You set up the DHCP server to provide the KN-304 with WINS server information automatically. Otherwise
you can enter the required information in “TCP/IP Setup” of the KN-304. See the instruction manual of the
DHCP server for details of automatic setup for the DHCP server.
Perform the following steps in order that the WINS server should work for the KN-304.

Appendices-4 KN-304 Network Board


Appendices

Assign an IP address to the KN-304. You may use DHCP.

Initiate access to the desired KN-304 by using the Web utility.

Select “TCP/IP Setup” from the main menu.

The NetBIOS name for the KN-304 is shown on the screen. The NetBIOS name is the KN-
304’s serial number (for example, KON_993011).

You can enter a new name to change the current NetBIOS name. It should be a string of up to
15 1-byte characters.

If the DHCP server is set up so that the address of the primary WINS server be supplied to the
KN-304, the address is shown in the TCP/IP Setup menu. If it is not shown, enter the IP
address of the primary WINS server. You can also enter the IP address of the secondary
WINS server if you like. If the DHCP server is set up so that the address of the secondary
WINS server be supplied to the KN-304, the address is automatically filled.

Restart the printer (KN-304).

The printer’s status page should now show that the KN-304’s name has been successfully
registered in the WINS server.

● FTP printing
FTP printing by Netscape
Connect to the KN-304’s port through which print jobs are sent. For example, perform the follow-
ing steps to print through the KN-304 by Netscape.

Type [ftp://port1@<KN-304’s IP address].

Select [File] from the menu bar.

Select [Upload File].

More than one file cannot be selected for FTP printing.

KN-304 Network Board Appendices-5


Appendices

The selected file will be sent to the printer.

By Netscape and Drag & Drop


You can print out the contents of a file by Netscape and Drag & Drop.For example, perform the
following steps to print out a file through theKN-304 by Netscape.

Type [ftp://port1@<KN-304’s IP address]. A message says [Current directory is ].

Drag the file existing on the system to the Web browser’s window.

A prompt asks you “Do you want to upload the dragged file to the FTP server?” Click “OK”.

The file you just dragged will be sent to the printer.

More than one file cannot be selected for FTP printing. Only one can log in the port.

Use of FTP client


Perform the following to print from FTP Client.

Type [ftp<KN-304’s IP address].

Enter “port1” as the log-in name.

Select binary mode.

Type [put<filename>]. The selected file will be sent to the printer.
