Your Monarch 9855 or 9860 Version 5.0 or greater printer

contains MonarchNet2 software, which allows you to access, configure, and control your printers with the Monarch 7411 Ethernet Print Server remotely across a LAN (local area network), WLAN (wireless local area network), or WWW (world-wideweb) connection.

Information in this document supercedes information in previous versions. Check our Web site (www.paxar.com) for the latest release and documentation information.

O v e r v i e w

The Monarch 7411 Print Server lets you communicate with Monarch printers on an 802.11b and 802.11g wireless network or wired Ethernet 802.3 network. 802.11b/g refers to 802.11b and 802.11g in this manual.

You can use the print server in Ad-Hoc(peer-to-peer)or infrastructure (access point) wireless mode. The print server operates at speeds of up to 54 Mbps on any IEEE 802.11b/g wireless compatible network. It includes adual-modebuilt-inwired Ethernet (802.3) connection. So, the print server automatically switches between wireless and wired Ethernet mode.

Refer to your network manuals for more information. This manual does not include information about setting up your wireless or wired network.

We recommend reviewing the terms in the glossary before you begin.

A u d i e n c e

This manual is written for the System Administrator who sets up printers on the network and is familiar with basic networking principles.

S y s t e m R e q u i r e m e n t s

To use the print server for printing from a wireless network, you need an 802.11b/g wireless network. The wireless network consists of either of the following:

An 802.11b/g wireless enabled computer printing straight to the printer

(Ad-Hocmode).

An 802.11b/g wireless access point allowing wireless and wired Ethernet enabled computers to print to the print server (infrastructure mode).

To configure and print, you need the following:

1.The MAC address from the label of the print server (for example: 004017023F96).

2.Obtain the following information from your wireless network administrator:

Wireless mode (infrastructure or Ad-Hoc).

The SSID (service set identifier) for your wireless network.

1-2 MonarchNet2 Operating Instructions

If you are using TCP/IP (recommended for Windows Networks) and are not connected to a DHCP server (for obtaining an IP address automatically), you need a unique IP address for the wireless print server (for example: 192.0.0.192) and a subnet mask. If the print server is not on the same IP subnet as the computers you are printing from, you need a router. A print server with an IP address of 192.0.0.192 will not be seen by a network looking for devices with a prefix of 10.1.xxx.xxx. A router (default gateway) address is optional.

Wireless security settings.

S u p p o r t e d O p e r a t i n g S y s t e m s

The print server supports multiple network protocols for users with Microsoft Windows , Novell NetWare , NDS, and UNIX .

S u p p o r t e d N e t w o r k P r o t o c o l s

TCP/IP:

LPD/LPR BOOTP DHCP

HP JetDirect

Raw TCP/IP (port 9100 or any chosen port) NetWare (NEST)

NetBIOS over IP (with SMB) NetBEUI

DLC

Telnet

RSH or REMSH (remote shell)

WINS

DHCP

FTP

SNMP

All protocols are simultaneously active.

S e t t i n g U p t h e P r i n t S e r v e r

For MonarchNet2 to operate, make sure the print server is set to use the printer’s internal parallel port and usebi-directional communications.

If this is not already set for you:

1.From the printer’s Main Menu, select Setup,Port Settings,Parallel

Comm.,Port, and press or until you see Internal. PressEnter/Pause to save the setting.

2. Then, press to display Mode. PressEnter/Pause. Press or until you see IEEE1284. PressEnter/Pause to save the setting.

3.Press Escape/Clear until you see the Main Menu.

Note: MonarchNet2 uses the printer’s internal parallel port.

You can switch between MonarchNet2 and using the parallel port, but you must set the Port to External and the Mode to Compatible. Then, turn off the printer and turn it back on to detect the cable. MonarchNet2 is not available until you disconnect the parallel cable and change the Port to Internal and Mode to IEEE1284.

The serial and USB port are still active. However, allow a two-seconddelay when switching from one port (serial, Ethernet, or USB) to another.
