Time required to recognize the print server

It takes up to two minutes for the NetWare server to recognize the print server, after the printer is turned on. During this start-up time, the status sheet does not show the correct information.

Frame type

The same frame type should be used for the NetWare server and IPX router on the same network. If more than one frame type is used on the same network, bind all the frame types to the NetWare servers and IPX routers.

For NetWare 5.x

The IPX protocol must be installed (bound) on the

NetWare 5.x server.

About modes

If the mode you have logged in is different from the mode you set for the print server, a message appears when you try to configure the print server for NetWare. If you do not want to change the current settings, click Cancel and log in again using the same mode set for the print server.
