NP3640 Fast Ethernet Mini Print Server
Checking your Network Protocols (Windows 9x)
Your computer must have EITHER the TCP/IP or NetBEUI protocols installed. (All versions of
Windows after Windows 95 have TCP/IP installed by default.)
If using the Peer-to-peer Printing, the installation program will check this for you.
If using other methods, you must check manually, as follows:
1. Select the Settings - Control Panel - Network option on the Start Menu. You should see
a screen like the one following:
The highlighted line (TCP/IP -> PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter) indicates that TCP/IP is
installed. Your computer will show the name of the your Network card rather than "PCI
Fast Ethernet Adapter".
The line in the list (NetBEUI -> PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter) indicates that the NetBEUI
protocol is also installed on this computer. Your computer will show the name of the
your Network card rather than "PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter".
2. If neither line is present:
Install the NetBEUI protocol by selecting Add - Protocol - Microsoft - NetBEUI - OK.
You may be prompted for your Windows CD-ROM.
If required, you can also install TCP/IP. However, depending on your LAN environment,
TCP/IP may require further configuration.
3. If either protocol is already installed, proceed with installation.
