Network Protocol SupportMarkNet 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.Embedded Web PageSupports 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 printer features using a web browser. Using a web browser, it is easy to monitor printer status and change default settings. CompatibilityCompatible 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. DDNS and mDNS SupportDynamic Domain Name System (DDNS) is a networking protocol used to translate a domain name (host name) to an IP address with dynamic database queries. Multicast Domain Name System (mDNS) provides DNS for a single zone and allows for name resolution in a local zone when a DNS server is not available.SecuritySecure 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. FTP Capable Supports a built-in FTP server capable of printing TXT and PDF 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.
