You seemed pretty up on the workings of this print server. You don't
have the manual? Most printer servers designed for TCP/IP are Web
manageable. If no one has tampered with the password (or IP addressing
from the factory) and the default is known, you should be able to do
this through your browser with some guessing.

First try this IP address in your browser:

Then this as an alternative:

Whichever works will prompt you for a username and password. 'admin'
could be a possible default username and/or password.

Of course, the device needs to be on the LAN via TCP/IP connection AND
it has to be a safe assumption that *no other device or PC on the LAN is
using either of these IP addresses*. If any are, you will have a
conflict and may need to change the IP conflict at the PC's end to get
through this.

Sorry I couldn't be of much more help. I use a couple of different
printer servers of varying ages, so I am familiar with them. Never used
your brand. Hope something here helps you out.
