DEC Printserver 17/600 and NT4.0

By jeffrey.l.nester ·
I have NT 4.0 with SP4, and I am trying to setup a Digital PrintServer 17/600. It has been up and running in the past, but when it loses power it stops talking to our NT print server. The last admin didn't really document how to set it up, and I have run through all the manuals. I keep getting an ARP error for the IP??? Any ideas. I am running it on a static IP address on a seperate segment(for all our printers). I have tried to manually ARP the MAC address, I have checked the cables, and the actual connection.

Before installing the PrintServer host software you must obtain the Ethernet
address of your printer. The Ethernet address appears on the operator panel
as part of the power up cycle when the printer is powered on.
Power on the printer.
The printer performs its diagnostic self tests and the countdown is displayed
on the front panel. The Ethernet address is then displayed in the form of
nn-nn-nn-nn-nn-nn.
- Write down the Ethernet address.
Install your host system software using the PrintServer 17/600 printer
Ethernet address. For information about software installation, see the
PrintServer Software Installation Guide.

A CD would have been shipped with the printer to support the use of the PrintServer with Windows NT printing.With the PrintServer CD and the Ethernet address for the printer the LPS device can be configured on NT. This printer does not use IP as you typically think of it, it uses a device called LPS.
