Configuring the OkiLAN 6200e
Choosing an IP Address
Every TCP/IP network device is required to have a unique IP address. The IP address can be permanently stored using one of the following:
OKI OkiNet management utilities for TCP/IP, Novell NetWare or Banyan VINES (may apply to other OkiLAN print server models)
OkiLAN 6200e Configuration utility via telnet.
Note: The OkiNet utilities are the easiest way to assign an IP address.
Using factory default settings, the OkiLAN 6200e first attempts to determine its IP address (flashing rapid green) using DHCP, RARP, BOOTP or Gleaning. If the OkiLAN 6200e has not resolved its IP address after 2 minutes, it defaults to 18.104.22.168. (This IP address should be used only temporarily for configuration purposes.)
To choose an IP address:
Select an IP address and hostname for the OkiLAN 6200e. Example: 192.168.42.50 OkiLAN 6200e_name
Add the name and IP address to the “/etc/hosts” file of each host that will access the OkiLAN 6200e. Or, if your network uses a name service, add the host name and IP address to the name server.
Most TCP/IP networks use the Network Information Service (NIS), Domain Name Service (DNS) or the “/etc/hosts” database. See your network documentation for instructions.
