Configure Planet Print Server FPS-5P-D

$ arp -s <ip_address> <mac_address>
$ arp -s 192.168.0.105 00:40:01:23:DF:0F

The IP address you have to choose out of your LAN address range (e.g. 192.168.0.105 out of 192.168.0.1 – 192.168.0.254 with net mask 255.255.255.0). You can test if the IP address is already used with e.g.

$ ping -b 192.168.0.255

The MAC address is written on the back side of your print server (e.g. 00400123DF0F -> 00:40:01:23:DF:0F)

$ arp -v
$ ping <ip_address>
$ ping 192.168.0.105
