DMXNet is a high-performance network interface card for the Datamax I-Class, A-Class, and WClass Printer families. Driven by a powerful 32-bit RISC NET+ARM processor, the DMXNet card is easily installed and configured within seconds from the front panel or remotely via any standard Web browser to bring the levels of product maintenance and support through enhanced monitoring and control.
The DMXNet card supports basic IPX (Novell) and IP protocols over various Ethernet frame types. All protocols may be enabled and are supported concurrently. Multiple management connections, including network services APIs where provided, may be active at the same time. NetWare is operable in Network Directory Services and in Novell bindery or bindery emulation modes. IPX/SPX is used to support printer status requests so that the NIC is compatible with both Novell Pconsole and Net Admin utilities. The NIC includes an SNMP agent operating over IPX.
The NIC includes an SNMP V1 agent and implements the RFC1213 groups of MIB II as well as Host Resource MIB, the Printer MIB, and a DMX Enterprise Private MIB. The NIC MIB and Private MIB provide access to essentially the same NIC setup and Printer setup parameters as the web pages. The NIC supports one basic trap destination IP address for general trap messages. Current traps include general printer fault, head up, paper out, and ribbon out.
