Click Create and it searches for a PPD automatically. Select a printer description from the list. Click Select. Configuration is complete.

Contact Information

If you encounter printing difficulties, please refer to the appropriate section. If, after following the advice below and the Wireless Print Server still does not function properly, please access our website at for the latest information. You can also reach us 7 days a week, 24 hours a day at 1-877-466-8646.
Hardware and LAN Solutions
All of the Wireless Print Server's LEDs are off. Check the power supply or power connection. The Wireless Print Server unit cannot be found on the LAN, so configuration is not possible. If using the Wireless Interface to access: Temporarily disable WEP on your other Wireless stations. If using "Ad-Hoc" mode, it is not possible for Wireless stations to connect to the Wireless Print Server, because its default mode is "Infrastructure". You must use the wired interface for initial configuration. If using "Infrastructure" mode, verify that the SSID of the WPS870G matches your Access Points SSID. The Access Point itself has a blank (null) SSID. If there is a setting "Broadcast SSID" or "Allow SSID of ANY", this setting should be enabled. If using the Wired 10/100BaseT interface to access: Check the Hub/Router/Switch. The link LED for the port to which the Wireless Print Server is connected should be On. If it is Off, there may be a problem in the network cable. On the Wireless Print Server, check the LAN LED. If the LED is not On, the network connection is not working. If using TCP/IP: Ensure that there are no routers between the Wireless Print Server and the computer used for configuration.


Ensure that the computer used for configuration has the TCP/IP network protocol installed. Test its network connection by seeing if you can locate other LAN devices from the computer. (For example, Use Network Neighborhood and try to browse the network.) Note: you must power off the Wireless Print Server before connecting or disconnecting the LAN cable when switching between wireless and wired interfaces. I am using DHCP and there is an IP Address conflict involving the Wireless Print Server. If the Wireless Print Server is left on, but the DHCP server is turned off, the Wireless Print Server will retain its IP address without the DHCP Server being aware of it. Simply reset the Wireless Print Server so it obtains a new IP address. This problem also occurs if you assigned a static IP address that is within the range used by the DHCP server. If so, use another address that is NOT within the range used by the DHCP server. I use a router and had to restart it. Now I cant print. Re-power the Wireless Print Server until it re-associates with the router. If you still cannot print, run the Installation Wizard again to configure the Print Server. How do I change the Domain name? If you need to select another Domain for the Wireless Print Server, re-run the Installation Wizard.

Windows Printing Solutions The Installation Wizard cannot detect my Print Server in Windows XP.
You may need to disable your built-in firewall in Windows XP. You must be logged on to your computer with an administrator account in order to enable/disable the firewall. Follow the directions here: I cannot print in Windows XP. You may need to disable your built-in firewall in Windows XP. You must be logged on to your computer with an administrator account in order to enable/disable the firewall. Follow the directions here: It is suggested you use another firewall solution in this scenario, either with a hardware firewall or software firewall. When I tried to install the Printing software for Peer-to-Peer printing, I received an error message and the installation aborted. This may be caused by an existing installation of the printer port software. Before attempting another installation: Remove the existing installation Restart your computer To remove an existing printer port installation: 3 Click Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. Look for an entry with a name like "Shared Port", "Shared Printer Port", "Print Server Utility" or "Print Server Port". Select this item, click Add/Remove, and confirm the deletion.
On Windows 98, I installed the Print Port Driver for Peer-to-Peer Printing, but when I selected a port on a Wireless Print Server and clicked "Add", the printer was not installed. Try installing the Printer using the standard Windows tools, as follows: Start the Add Printer Wizard by selecting Start > Settings > Printers > Add Printer. Select Network Printer when prompted, "How is the printer attached to your Computer? and click Next.


Enter a dummy value such as shown for the Network path or queue name. Select No for "Do you print for MS-DOS programs?" and click Next. The printer wizard displays a message stating that "The Network Printer is off-line". This is OK. Continue the Add Printer Wizard until finished. If prompted about sharing the printer, do not enable Sharing. Once finished, navigate to the Printers folder (Start > Settings > Printers). The printer icon will be grayed out indicating the printer is not ready.


Right-click the Printer and select Properties, then the Details tab, as shown below.
Click Add Port. On the Add Port window, select Other, then Printer Server, as the port to add, as shown below.


Click OK. The Configure PrintServer window is displayed:
Click Browse, select the desired Wireless Print Server, and click OK.

Use the following information: Field Name of queue to add Hostname for remote server Name of queue on remote server Type of print spooler on remote server Entry Use a single-word queue name, which indicates which printer is attached. Wireless Print Server name as used in /etc/hosts.lpd. Logical printer number (for example, L1) to service this queue. Use default value. (AIX Version xxx)
Ensure that the logical printers are configured in the Wireless Print Server. Print using the following command: lp -d printer_queue file_name Where printer_queue is one of the entries used in Name of queue to add. file_name is the file you wish to print.


LPD on System V
Before beginning LPD Setup, ensure that an IP address has been assigned to the Wireless Print Server. Keep the following points in mind: The remote host name is the name of the Wireless Print Server. The remote printer name is the print queue name for the Logical Printer. Logical printers also need to be configured on the Wireless Print Server itself. If your UNIX asks for the LPD type, be sure to identify the service type as BSD. The Wireless Print Servers LPD protocol meets BSD system standards. In the sample commands shown, printer_name is the name of the Print Queue serviced by the Wireless Print Server, and Spooler_directory is the name of the directory, which is used to spool the print jobs. Procedure Table Action Stop Print Services Add a System Printer Restart the Print Services Enable printing to the new printer device Start accepting jobs for the new printer device Create a spooling directory Make spooling daemon the owner of this directory Create read/write permissions Give permissions to LPD processes. Add remote printer(s) Sample Command /usr/lib/lpshut /usr/lib/lpadmin -p printer_name -v /dev/null /usr/lib/lpsched enable printer_name accept printer_name mkdir /usr/spool/Spooler_directory chown daemon /usr/spool/Spooler_directory chmod 775 /usr/spool/Spooler_directory chgrp daemon /usr/spool/Spooler_directory See following section


Adding Remote Printers
A remote printer is added by inserting the following line in the /etc/printcap file. Note: The entry is really one line, but can be entered as shown. Use a TAB character where shown. Printer_name|Remote_Printer_Alias:\ [TAB] :lp=:\ [TAB] :rm=PS_NAME:\ [TAB] :rp=Logical_Printer_name:\ [TAB] :sd=Spooler_directory:\ [TAB] :mx#0: Where: Printer_name is the Print Queue name used to store jobs for the corresponding logical printer. PS_NAME is the Wireless Print Server name defined in /etc/hosts. Logical_Printer_name is the logical printer name on the Wireless Print Server (for example, L1). Spooler_directory is the directory you created. Example: Marketing|RP1_PS123456:\ [TAB] :lp=:\ [TAB] :rm=PS_Rm203:\ [TAB] :rp=L1:\ [TAB] :sd=/usr/spool/Marketing:\ [TAB] :mx#0: Repeat this process for each Logical Printer/Print Queue combination that you wish to create.

Enter the desired name for the Printer Agent (PA) Name. Normally, the NDPS Manager will be the NDPS Manger object you are using. Select Novell Printer Gateway in the Gateway Type (see above). Click OK and then select the available printer.


Select Remote (LPR on IP) in the Connection Type. Click Next to display the Configure Port Handler window.
