Configuration and wifi protocol of the HP 2101nw USB wireless G print server

Configuration and wifi protocol of the HP 2101nw USB wireless G print server

This device is not really a print server, but rather a USB port forwarder over WLAN. It has a USB micro connection for configuration (config only via USB!) and a normal USB plug for the printer.

Configuration protocol (micro USB port)

  • USB-ID: 03f0:cd02
  • Output of ''lusb -v''
  • The whole configuration works via USB BULK commands
  • Each packet has the usual 64-bytes URB header
  • The general USB communication follows the USB standard, i.e. each communication is always initiated by the USB host, either by sending a packet with the appropriate data or by an empty packet to request data from the client, and answered by the USB client (by either an empty acknowledge packet or by a packet containing the requested data):
    • URB_BULK out (URB_SUBMIT), sent by host, containing the command
    • URB_BULK out (URB_COMPLETE), returned by host, empty, only 64-bytes header
    • URB_BULK in (URB_SUBMIT), sent by host, empty, only 64-bytes header (request data from client)
    • URB_BULK in (URB_COMPLETE), returned by host, containing the response data

All responses are split into individual packages with a maximum length of 320 (including the header). If the data is longer, the response is split into multiple packets, each of which has to be requested by an empty URB_BULK in (URB_SUBMIT) by the host.

In the following, only the actual data transferred will be shown, no URB headers and not empty acknowledge/request packets are shown.

USB packet data format

All data packets sent to (OUT) / received from (IN) the device have their own custom header (IN: 12 bytes, OUT: 13 bytes) inside the packet data, which contains one magic byte (@), the size of the data and the boxname („XXXXXXXX“ describing the USB host, or something like „PT9E2D2F“ for the device). After this this 12/13 bytes header follows the actual content of the packet, which consists of \n-separated lines (i.e. 0x0a linefeed). Each entry has the form

OPTIONID [OPTIONNAME]:VALUE

The OPTIONID followed by an ordinary space (0x20). The OPTIONNAME is typically empty when sending data from the USB host to the device. VALUE can be empty or any other string describing the option value.

header format

Header for OUT packets (sent from the USB host to the device):

40 00 ll ll 58 58 58 58 58 58 58 58            @...XXXXXXXX
byte(s) value description
0 0x40 (@) magic byte indicating a command for the device
1 0x00 (\0) Unknown, always 0
2-3 content length Length of the packet contents (excluding this header), LITTLE ENDIAN (lower byte first)
4-11 sendername boxname of the sending USB host (always XXXXXXXX)

Header for IN packets (sent from the device to the USB host):

40 00 00 e3 03 50 54 39 45 32 44 32 46         @....PT9E2D2F
byte(s) value description
0 0x40 (@) magic byte indicating a command from the device
1-2 0x0000 (\0\0) Unknown, always 0
3-4 content length Length of the packet contents (excluding this header), LITTLE ENDIAN (lower byte first)
5-12 sendername boxname of the sending device (something like „PT9E2D2F“, „PT“ + last 6 bytes of MAC)

Device option ranges

Range Command types
0xxx General system settings (hostname, L1/L2/L3)
4xxx IP-Address, dhcp, router, etc. settings
5xxx Unknown (only set, but not returned with configuration
70xx Infrastructure wireless settings
71xx Ad-hoc wireless settings
9xxx Device commands (sent to the device)

Device commands

To send a command (e.g. reset, retrieve config data, etc.) to the device, the same format is used as described above. All commands start with 9xxx and typically don't have any value.

Command Description Return value
9002 Reset device Empty responses (only header) until device is shut down and does not return anything
9100 Request configuration from the device full device config
9107 Start wlan scan empty (only header)
9971 Unknown (only called for ad-hoc after network scan) 1

USB detection / device capabilities

One USB request (command 9100), returning all configuration options, each on a separate line (0x0a linefeed) character as described above. For a list of all options, see below.

Example when print server is connected to a WLAN:

Retrieving WLAN access points

  • A 9107 command initiates a WIFI scan on the device
    • after 5 seconds, the full configuration is requested (9100 command).
    • The results of the scan are stored in the 7021 SURVEY variable.
    • If that variable is empty, the 9107 wifi scan and the 9100 are repeated
  • Break when the survey returns results.

Ad-hoc network

Network discovery works with the same 9100 and 9107 commands, but afterwards one additional 9971 command is sent:

Setting the wlan access point

Changing settings on the device works by simply sending a new configuration file containing only those options that should be changed. Example: WLAN settings: ESSID „tunet“, no encryption or authentication, addresses via DHCP

Network communication protocol (USB port forwarding over WLAN)

There are three different types of communications:

  1. Device information requests: UDP port 34444 (data format: “@\0[len][DEVNAME][OPTIONID]:[VALUE]\n“)
  2. Detection, configuration and locking: TCP & UDP port 34447 (data format: „SBSU[Cmd][args]“)
  3. USB over TCP: TCP port 34448 (data format: [type][18byte header], Response „RBRU[len]…“)
  • TCP Ports 34447, 34448 and 34450 are open and used
  • UDP Ports 34444 and 34447 are used for discovery broadcast and other device communication

General communication packet structure for print server communication

The communication with the print server itself uses UDP port 34444 and a header and packet structure of the form described for the USB communication above.

Structure of OUT packets (sent from the PC to the print server):

40 00 ll ll 50 54 39 45 32 44 32 46 __ __ __...       @...PT9E2D2F___...
byte(s) value description
0 0x40 (@) magic byte indicating a command for the device
1 0x00 (\0) Unknown, always 0
2-3 content length Length of the packet contents (excluding this header), LITTLE ENDIAN (lower byte first)
4-11 sendername RECEIVING USB host (e.g. PT9E2D2F)
12-… packet contents format is again the config-file format described with the USB device configuration

Structure IN packets (sent from the device to the USB host):

40 00 00 e3 03 50 54 39 45 32 44 32 46 __ __ __...        @....PT9E2D2F___...
byte(s) value description
0 0x40 (@) magic byte indicating a command from the device
1-2 0x0000 (\0\0) Unknown, always 0
3-4 content length Length of the packet contents (excluding this header), LITTLE ENDIAN (lower byte first)
5-12 sendername boxname of the sending device (something like „PT9E2D2F“, „PT“ + last 6 bytes of MAC)
12-… packet contents config-file format described under the USB device configuration

Known config request calls are:

OPTIONID description
9010 Hardware information (MAC, IP, wireless information etc.)
9801 request MAC address

Communication packet structure for printer communication (through print server)

The communication with the printer uses UDP/TCP ports 34447 and a header of the form

SBSU[Cmd][args]

where Cmd is a 2-byte (little endian) command and args is command-specific data of variable length. The response from the device has the same header and contains the response as args. The inial SBSU is the magic string USBS in little endian.

Known Commands are:

Cmd description
0x0001 request device status, returns printserver name, connected printer and … TODO
0x0007 ??

USB over TCP packet structure (TCP port 34448)

The USB over TCP communication with the printer uses TCP port 34448.

Example:

0b 00 02 00 00 00 00 01  00 00 00 00 12 00 00 00 ........ ........
00 00 00 00 01 00 00 00                          ........ 
    52 42 52 55 12 00 00 00  02 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 RBRU.... ........
    01 00 00 00 12 01 00 02  00 00 00 40 2b 13 89 20 ........ ...@ .. 
    00 01 01 02 03 01                                ......

The packets sent to the printer have a length of 24 bytes, first byte seems to be the command. After the header comes the actual USB packet contents (empty for USB control calls).

bytes description
0 command: 0x00=GET interface information (FIXME), 0x09=BULK FIXME, 0x0b=GET DESCRIPTOR, 0x1b=URB_CONTROL In
1-5 FIXME: UNKNOWN
3 For GET interface information: Interface to request info for (0x00, 0x01, 0x02)
6 For GET DESCRIPTOR: DESCRIPTOR index, Otherwise: FIXME UNKNOWN
7 For GET DESCRIPTOR: DESCRIPTOR type (0x01=DEVICE, 0x02=CONFIGURATION, 0x03=STRING), Otherwise: FIXME UNKNOWN
8-9 FIXME: UNKNOWN, for URB_CONTROL In: wValue, for STRING DESCRIPTOR: languageId
10-11 FIXME: UNKNOWN, for URB_CONTROL In: wIndex
12-15 For GET DESCRIPTOR: expected data length (excluding response header), URB_CONTROL In: URB length or wLength, little endian
16-19 serial (little endian): sometimes 0x00000000, mostly equal to bytes 20-23
20-23 serial (little endian): Incremented with each USB command

The resonse packets will quote bytes 16-23 (even if 16-19 is 0x00)

The response packets have a 16 bytes head, after which the contents of the USB packet are sent.

byte description
0-3 RBRU magic („URBR“ in little endian)
4-7 length of the packet data after the header (excluding this header)

20-… USB packet contents

(a) (Broadcast) Device detection & device status

This command is used for

  1. detecting all available printer servers in the network (UDP broadcast), and for
  2. obtaining the status of one particular print server (UDP packet to one IP address).

UDP packet to port 34447 on address 255.255.255.255 (broadcast) or one particular IP address.

Packet type: SBSU command 0x0001 (status)

Response: either no response at all (i.e. no print server), or a SBSU 0x0001 response giving details about the connected printer.

If no printer is connected, the response looks like:
