Reset DEClaser 3500 IP address?

» close window

The Question is:

How do I set the IP address on the DecLaser 3500 NIC?  The User's Guide book
 talks about using bootp, rarp, or reverse ping (among other methods suitable
 for PCs!).  I think I have configured bootp according to the UCX documenation,
 but I have not been ab
le to get it to do anything with our version of UCX 4.1.  RARP and reverse ping
 illude me at the moment.  After configuring bootp, restarting UCX, and cycling
 power on the DecLaser 3500, the NIC address does not change from the default
 it was set to when
we purchased the DEcLaser 3500.  I am using a LAN with VAX/ALPHA processors
 only, no PC's please.  I will be using an IP address with a subnet mask on our
 LAN.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The Answer is :

  Return the DEClaser 3500 device to factory defaults.
  The DEClaser 3500 printer must have either no IP address or have the
  factory default address to be able to change it.  As described in the
  documentation, setting jumper 6 on the network card and power-cycling
  the printer will return the network card to factory defaults.
  From OpenVMS, using arp and ping as described will allow an IP address
  to be assigned.
  From the front panel, you can reset the printer by pressing and holding
  both ONLINE and MENU when powering up the printer.
  Front panel security is controlled with the following key sequence:
   Value (down)
   Value (down)
   Value (up)
   Value (down)
