Printer Servers

By dgates_1 ·
I have a NETQue printer server that I am trying to configure. After an IP address is assigned it seems pretty straight forward. I am having trouble assigning an address though. I have the server hooked up via a UTP LAN connection. I am running DHCP on Windows NT 4.0 platform and am unsure if DHCP assigns an IP or not. I have tried to arp -s the MAC address to a static IP but I cannot ping the address after it is assigned. I think I am missing a step or two. How can I telnet into the Printer server? How can I use the com port to hook up to a PC and Either telnet or use hyperterminal to communicate with the printer server? Any suggestions?

A few things to consider
1.Use HP JetAdmin as a means of assigning an IP address to the Printer Server. OR reset the unit to factory defaults and then TELNET into the unit. I am assuming that you can connect it via a hub through your LAN connection. You will need to change a computer to the same subnet as the default of the print server IP
2. Do not use DHCP on the print server. Assign an IP address manually. Select an address outside of your DHCP scope
3. Once an IP has been assigened, is should be visable on your network. If not, then use the HP JetAdmin utility to check the status if it. This utility searches your LAN for any MAC addresses and you can then configure from here.

I tried using the HP utility but it did not recognize any new devices . I'm not sure if it is because the print server is a NETQue from Emulex and not an HP print server or not.
