Save multiple configurations, each with its own emulation. Then assign eachconfiguration to one of the ‘print models’ in the PrintNet adapter.
The PrintNet adapter has eight data “ports”, 9100 through 9107. Each port has a “destination” (or “queue”), and each destination has a “model”. By default, port 9100 is assigned destination/queue name “d1prn” and model “m1”.
The model defines how the print job will be processed as it passes through to the printer. Models are a set of filters that can be used to modify the print data stream.
The model can be assigned one of the eight saved configurations “1” through “8”, or the factory configuration, represented by “0”. When a job comes in on the port to which that model is assigned, the appropriate configuration is loaded before printing starts. Any config can be assigned to any model.
For example, save a PGL configuration as #1 and a ZGL configuration as #2. Then set model m1 with config 1, and set model m2 with config 2.
Then, when the user prints to IP:9100 or prints to destination d1prn, config 1 will load and the printer will be configured for PGL.
On the other hand, when the user prints to IP:9101 or to destination d2prn, config 2 will load and the printer will be in ZGL mode.
METHOD 1 – browser:
- Log into the NIC using a web browser. The web address is the IP of the NIC.
- Select ‘Configuration’ and log in.
- The user name is ‘root’, without the quotes, in lower case.
- The password is blank; just ignore the field.
- Select ‘Print Model’.
- Verify the model (“m1” is the default model for port 9100)
- Pick the Configuration Number from the pull-down list.
- Allowable values are 1-8, Factory, (None)
- Press the ‘Submit’ button at the bottom of the page.
- Select ‘System’ menu function at the top the of page.
- Press ‘Reboot’ button. Indicate that you are sure by pressing ‘Yes’.
METHOD 2 – telnet:
[Note: Type the values in single quotes, not the quotes themselves, and press Enter.]
- Open a telnet session with the NIC.
- Open a DOS window (cmd.com) and/or run telnet using the IP address of the NIC.
- Login name is ‘root’ in lower case, password is empty (Enter key only).
- To see the current config for model m1, type ‘list model m1’.
- To set model m1 to config #1, type ‘set model m1 config 1’
- There is no space in “m1” but there is a space in “config 1”
- To set model m1 to config #4, type ‘set model m1 config 4’
- Do not load a configuration that has not been saved yet!
- To set model m1 to the factory config, type ‘set model m1 config 0’
- To clear the config for m1, type ‘set model m1 config’
- After making all changes, type ‘save’ then type ‘reset’.
- The NIC will reset and the printer will cycle power.
