How do I connect to the Ioprint+ using TCP/IP when it is in factory default from a Unix host?
There are two ways of assigning a temporary IP address to the IOPRINT when the unit is in factory default; one uses RARP, the other uses ARP.
It is suggested that you set IP address with one of the above methods, then save the IP address within the Ioprint+ configuration. This avoids having to set the IP address every time you power on the IOPRINT.
Method 1: Using RARP to Set the IP Address
1 : Edit the file /etc/ethers by adding the following line 00:c0:02:xx:xx:xx PrintServer_Name Where 00:c0:02:xx:xx:xx is the Ethernet address you got from the bottom of the IOPRINT
2 : Edit the file /etc/hosts by adding the follow line yyy:yyy:yyy:yyy PrintServer_Name Where yyy:yyy:yyy:yyy is the IP address to be assigned to the IOPRINT
3 : Start the rarp daemon by typing : rarpd -a
4 : Now you can connect to the unit via TCP/IP to configure the unit with a permanent IP Address.
Method 2: Using ARP to Set the IP Address
1 : Edit the file /etc/hosts by adding the following line yyy:yyy:yyy:yyy PrintServer_Name Where yyy:yyy:yyy:yyy is the IP Address to be assigned to the IOPRINT
2 : Add an entry in arp table arp -s PrintServer_Name 00:c0:02:xx:xx:xx Where PrintServer_Name is assumed to be the IOPRINT name, 00:c0:02:xx:xx:xx is assumed to be the hardware address of the IOPRINT
Note: The syntax of arp -s command may not exactly the same for all UNIX system, to see online instructions about the arp command, type : man arp
3 : Now you can connect to the unit via TCP/IP to configure the unit with a permanent IP Address.
