Old Twinax/Ethernet Print server problem

Old Twinax/Ethernet Print server problem

Old Twinax/Ethernet Print server problem

I need to change the IP address on a Bossanova e-twinax print server. Bossanova was no help unless you pay them for a support contract. You're supposed to be able to http into this, tried it with no response. Also tried hooking a com cable to the comport and a PC, says I'm connected but no response to keystrokes. This unit was working until we changes our network addressing. Any help or links are appreciated.

RE: Old Twinax/Ethernet Print server problem

Bossanova is a framiliar name,, but I have not worked with any of their products. Hopefully you can find someone who has, or some help on the web..

Have you tried a Hyperterminal or Procimm Plus with the following settings?
Bits per sec    :  9600
Data bits       :     8
Parity          :  none
Stop bits       :     1
Flow control    :  none


RE: Old Twinax/Ethernet Print server problem

Thanks for your response. The problem was there is virtually no documentation on these units out on the web. It turns out we had to pay for a support call, and we had to send the unit back to be reset.  Now you can http to the unit on port 8080.
