How to Perform GP 13 Network Clone Procedure for Xerox VersaLink C7020 C7025 C7030 C7000 Printer?

Posted by Xwk Tech on

Purpose

Use this procedure to establish a network connection between the PWS and printer, create a copy of network configuration settings and then distribute these settings to multiple devices on the network. This cloning process can also be used to backup and restore network settings lost during a software reload.

NOTE: To establish a direct Ethernet connection between the PWS and printer requires the printer’s driver installation CD-ROM, a crossover cable, and the PWS.

Depending on the printer, a Windows 7 (W7) driver might not be available on the printer’s driver installation CD-ROM. If not, download the driver from Xerox.com under the Support and Drivers page. W7 has two kernel types, 32 and 64-bit. If installation the wrong driver is attempted, Windows displays an error to indicate the driver is incorrect. To check the kernel type, click on Start, in the right column, right click on Computer and select Properties, the kernel type will be listed as System Type.

Procedure

Refer to the relevant procedure:

• Establishing a LAN Connection
• Creating the Clone File
• Using the Clone File
• Set a Static IP Address on the PWS
• PWS Browser Proxy Server Setting

Establishing a LAN Connection

Use these steps to establish a Local Area Network (LAN) connection between the PWS and printer using a crossover cable.

NOTE: Record the original data for every change. It may be necessary to reset the IP address, depending on PWS usage and local network practice.

1. Print a Configuration Report, GP 14. Note the printer’s IP address.
2. Connect the crossover cable between the PWS and printer.
3. Open a Command window (CMD) on the PWS:

• Select Start and in the Search box above the Start button, type CMD, then press Enter.

4. Type ipconfig at the prompt, record the current network settings displayed. Restore these settings when the LAN connection is no longer needed.

NOTE: Use the IPv4 address for the Local Area Connection, not the address listed under Wireless Ethernet Connection (if enabled in the laptop).

5. Check the IP addresses of the PWS and printer. If the PWS has been connected to the same subnet, the PWS and printer address should share the same values for the first three and have a different value for the forth number. Refer to Table 1 for an example.

Table 1 Example LAN settings
  Printer PWS / Laptop
IP Address 192.168.0.2 192.168.0.5
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 255.255.255.0
Gateway/Router 192.168.0.1 192.168.0.1

If the PWS and printer share similar, but unique IP address, continue. If not, use the Set a Static IP Address on the PWS to set the PWS IP address.

6. After verifying the IP addresses are correctly configured, PING the printer:

a. In the Command window (where the blinking cursor is) type the word PING. Press the space bar once and enter the printer’s IP address and press Enter. As an example: ping 192.168.0.2.
b. If the printer responds to the PING command, it replies four times. This should not take more than two or three seconds.
c. If the PING command times out, or responds with "host unreachable", check the IP addresses that were entered. If the IP address is correct, contact 2nd level support.

7. If the PING command replies, exit the Command window (type "exit" at the prompt and press Enter). This test verifies the Ethernet connection is good.
8. Install the printer driver and setup the printer as a local printer. Select connect to the printer using “other” port type. From the dialog drop down select Standard TCP/IP port.
9. For the printer name or IP address, enter the printer’s IP address (192.168.0.2 in this example).
10. When the driver installation finishes, Select Yes at the Print Test Print dialog box.

NOTE: If the test page does not print, the customer could have Accounting enabled (if the device supports it) requiring that a special code is submitted with the print job before the printer prints.

11. After the test print is completed, open a web browser on the PWS.
12. In the Address Bar (in place of a web site address or URL), enter the printer’s IP address (192.168.0.2 in this example).
13. If the connection is working correctly, the web page of the printer will be displayed.

NOTE: If the printer’s webpage cannot be opened, verify that Web Services are enabled on the configuration page. If the the web browser is set to use a Proxy address for the internet connection, it will not be possible to open the printer’s webpage as there will be no connection to that proxy server while directly connected to the printer via the crossover Ethernet cable. Refer to PWS Browser Proxy Server Setting for instructions on Internet Explorer proxy configuration.

Creating the Clone File

NOTE: This procedure can be performed from any PC connected to the network or the PWS connected to the machine using an Ethernet crossover cable. The only requirement on the PC is an Internet Browser.

1. Open Internet Explorer
2. Enter the machine’s IP address in the Address line and select Go.
3. When the Internet Services window opens, login to Admin mode, GP 23. Click on the Home tab, then the Cloning link.
4. Select individual parameters to clone from the device or Select/Clear All.
5. Click on Create.
6. If prompted, save the clone file to an easily remembered location that for later installation. If not prompted to save the file, look for it in the Downloads folder.
7. Click Close.
8. Log out of Admin mode, GP 19.

Using the Clone File

NOTE: This procedure can be performed from any PC connected to the network or the PWS connected to the machine using an Ethernet crossover cable. The only requirement on the PC is an Internet Browser.

1. Open Internet Explorer
2. Enter the machine’s IP address in the Address line and select Go.
3. When the Internet Services window opens, login to Admin, GP 23. Click on the Home tab, then the Cloning link.
4. Click on the Select button.
5. Use the Browse button to navigate to the clone file, or type the full path to the file, then click Open.
6. Click Install.
7. Verify the cloned settings with a new Configuration Report.

Set a Static IP Address on the PWS

Use this procedure to manually set the PWS IP address. Instructions are given for W7 and W10.

NOTE: If the PWS has a wireless Ethernet card/adapter installed, Windows will not use the wired Ethernet port by default until either the PWS is rebooted or the wireless Ethernet card is temporarily disabled. If unsure how to disable/enable the wireless Ethernet card, restart the PWS after setting the IP address.

For W7:

1. Open the Control Panel.
2. Select Network Sharing Center.
3. Select Change Adaptor Settings in the upper left corner of the Control Panel.
4. Right-click on Local Area Connection, then select Properties.
5. On the Networking tab (for local area connection), click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), then select Properties.
6. Select Use the following IP address, then enter the IP address and subnet mask. Refer to the configuration report then:

• Set the IP address of the laptop one number higher than the device. For example, if the IP address of the device is 192.168.196.112, set the IP address of the laptop to 192.168.196.113.
• Set the Subnet mask of the laptop to the same as the Subnet mask of the device.

7. Click OK twice and exit Network Connections and return to Creating the Clone File.

For W10:

1. Click Start and select Settings.
2. Select Network and Internet.
3. Under Related settings select Network and Sharing Center, then from the task list on the left of the screen select Change adapter settings.
4. Right-click on Local Area Connection and then select Properties.
5. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), then select Properties. The Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Properties window will open.
6. Select Use the following IP address, then enter the IP address and subnet mask.

Refer to the configuration report then:

• Set the IP address of the laptop one number higher than the device. For example, if the IP address of the device is 192.168.196.112, set the IP address of the laptop to 192.168.196.113.
• Set the Subnet mask of the laptop to the same as the Subnet mask of the device.

7. Select OK to close the properties dialog box, then OK to close the second properties dialog box.
8. Close the Local Area Connection Status dialog box and return to Creating the Clone File.

PWS Browser Proxy Server Setting

The following steps ensure the proxy server settings are correct.

1. Open Windows Internet Explorer.
2. Select Tools - Internet Options.
3. Select the Advanced tab.
4. Scroll down to HTTP 1.1 Settings.
5. Ensure that the "Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections" box is un-checked.
6. Select OK to close the Internet Options window.
7. Close Windows Internet Explorer.
