The following individual printer gateway settings can be changed:
Status Update Interval - The HP IP/IPX Printer Gateway uses two different printer status update intervals. When the printer is idle, the HP IP/IPX Printer Gateway defaults to update intervals of 15 minutes. Otherwise, the HP IP/IPX Printer Gateway defaults to update intervals of 10 seconds. These settings have a direct effect on the timeliness of event notifications. The update interval, for the When Idle and When Printing menu items, can be modified as needed.
MOD: Update time of day - This menu item sets the time of day when the printer refreshes the Managed Object Database (MOD), capturing any changes that have been made to the printer but not to the database.
Timeout to close job - This menu item defines how long the HP IP/IPX Printer Gateway will wait before closing the print job connection.
MOD Update this printer gateway NOW - This menu item updates the MOD immediately.
Printer Definition Type - Describes the capabilities of specific printers. A file corresponding to each type is included in NDPS to ensure that the features available in the printers of today can be fully exploited by the NDPS discovery feature.
Turn Printer SAPs OFF at startup - This menu item allows printer SAPs to be turned off when the HP IP/IPX Printer Gateway is started, thereby reducing network traffic.
Turn Printer SAPs ON at shutdown - This menu item allows printer SAPs to be turned on when the HP IP/IPX Printer Gateway is shut down.
MOD: Update the SNMP Timeout - This menu item defines how long the HP IP/IPX Printer Gateway will wait before closing the print job connection.
Update the Printer Gateway with default parameters - Updates the loaded gateway with all the new default parameters once the menu item parameter is set to Yes, and once the settings on the screen are saved.
Print a test page - When this menu item parameter is selected and Enter is pressed, a simple text test page is sent to the physical printer. This can be used to verify the actual connection between HP IP/IPX Printer Gateway and the printer.
