The Monarch Marking Systems MonarchNetä Ethernet Printer Server enables Ethernet network users to connect to a parallel printer using a high-speed,bi-directionalparallel port.

The Ethernet print server connects to a Monarchâ 9840ä printer (version 6.5 or greater).

MonarchNet consists of the following:

Operating Instructions for the Ethernet print server (these instructions)

Ethernet Print Server

The print server may need to be configured before you can use it. Software is available on Monarch’s Web site (www.monarch.com) to configure the print server or you can order part number TC9840ENCD for the MonarchNet Utilities compact disc.

The MonarchNet print server provides multiprotocol capabilities for users with Windowsâ 95/98/2000, Windows NTâ, TCP/IP, and Novellâ NetWareâ.

Related Documents

Refer to your printer’s Operator’s Handbook for related information about printer configuration. A Technical Reference Manual, which includes additional Ethernet set-upand configuration information, is also available on our Web site. You can order part number TC9800ENTR for a printed copy of the Technical Reference Manual.

Also, see your Network Operating System manuals for related information about network configuration and printing operations.

Parallel Output Port

The parallel output port of the Ethernet print server connects directly to the Centronics connector on most printers.

10BASE-TUTP, UnshieldedTwisted-PairEthernet Cable

Twisted-pairsystems use10BASE-Thubs or

concentrators. Adding the Ethernet print server does not

interrupt network operation.

1-2 Introduction

Status Indicator

A bi-colorStatus indicator displays the general state of the Ethernet print server. In normal operation, the Status indicator flashes orange duringpower-upself test and then changes to a solid green when it passes the selftest.

Solid green indicates a connection has been made with a 10Base-Thub.

Flashing green rapidly indicates the network connection is faulty or does not exist.

Flashing green slowly indicates print job activity.

Solid orange for more than 30 seconds indicates the print server has failed Power On Self Test.

Flashing alternately orange and green for longer than two minutes indicates the print server is in firmware download mode.

See Chapter 3, “Troubleshooting” for any problems you may have.

Test

A test button, located on the side of the Ethernet print server, is provided to allow detailed configuration information to be printed.

Restore to Factory Defaults - If the test button is pressed and held when the printer is turned on until the Status indicator turns green, the Ethernet print server configuration parameters are set to Factory Defaults and a configuration sheet prints.

This chapter explains how to install the Ethernet print server.

If you have not already done so, record the model number, serial number and address of your Ethernet print server and save it for future reference.

To use the Ethernet print server, upper DIP switch 8 on the printer must be turned ON. This enables the bidirectional communication.

Upper DIP

Switches

Do not plug any cables into the parallel port when using the Ethernet port.

A printer with an Ethernet port cannot use the parallel port. However, the serial port is still active.

Installing the Print Server 2-1

To install the print server:

1. Turn off the printer by using the printer’s power switch or removing the power cord.

2. Attach the Ethernet print server directly to the Centronicsâ connector on the printer. Secure the Ethernet print server to the printer with the spring clicks on the printer.

3. Attach the10Base-TUTP cable to the receptacle on the back of the Ethernet print server.

4. Turn on the printer by using the printer’s power switch or attaching the power cord.

The status indicator blinks orange during self-testand then changes to green when theself-testcompletes successfully.
