MarkNet X2031e - Ethernet 10/100BaseTx External Print Server with auto-speed negotiation
An external print server to connect a printer to most major networks using a parallel or serial port. Supports 2 IEEE 1284-B parallel ports and 1 DB-9 serial port. For 10/100BaseTX Ethernet with RJ-45 connector.
Compatible with popular operating systems including Novell NetWare, Microsoft Windows (95, 98, Me, NT, 2000 and XP) as well as UNIX, Linux and Apple Mac OS
Simple to set up - Management is simplified by network settings that can be established either automatically or remotely - configure using MarkVision, command line or the GUI utilities.
Easily upgradeable - The firmware resides in flash memory which allows upgrades via software download. Firmware upgrades are flashable and can simultaneously address multiple devices.
Supports 100Mb fast Ethernet networks and 10Mb with auto-speed negotiation to determine your network speed without manual intervention.
Network Protocol Support
MarkNet print servers and the standard Ethernet connection support these protocols: TCP/IP, Novell (IPX/SPX including NetWare Directory Services), AppleTalk™ and LexLink (DLC/LLC). All protocols can be active simultaneously. Simultaneous protocol support allows you to print from different systems without reconfiguring the print server.
TCP/IP Standard Set of Application Services
These application services are supported: DHCP, WINS, SNMP (industry standard printer MIB), http, lpr/lpd, ftp, tftp, ping, finger, telnet, bootp and rarp. In addition, these TCP/IP protocols are also supported IPP: Internet Printing Protocol, SLP: Service Location Protocol, NTP: Network Timing Protocol. Service Locator Protocol (SLP) provides key services to your network applications allowing the applications to find the print server in an efficient manner. Network Time Protocol (NTP) ensures that all devices on the network are synchronized with your centralized time server.
Supports a built-in FTP server capable of printing TXT documents without opening a compatible application. Simply open an FTP session and PUT your files directly to the printer. FTP Services are available from any computing device on the network sporting an FTP client.
Secure your printing device on the network. Limit access to certain devices through a built-in Restricted Server List. Make users authenticate by enabling password protection. Move the device out of the ‘public’ domain by changing the SNMP community name. Disable chatty protocols and vulnerable services by using the Embedded Web Server.
Embedded Web Page
Supports an embedded Web page with Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or later and Netscape Navigator 6.0 or later for Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows 2000 or Windows NT. The embedded web page allows administrators to access print server features using a web browser. Using a web browser, it is easy to monitor printer status and change default settings.
