BEFORE INSTALLING THE
SOFTWARE
This chapter describes the software programs that allow you to use the printer and scanner functions of the machine,
the CD-ROMs that contain the software, and the pages where the installation procedures can be found.
CD-ROMS AND SOFTWARE
The software that can be used with the machine is on the CD-ROMs that accompany the machine and the expansion kits.
Before installing the software, make sure that your computer and the machine meet the system requirements described
in "VERIFYING SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS" (page 4).
SOFTWARE CD-ROM
X "Software CD-ROM" that accompanies the machine
The "Software CD-ROM" that accompanies the machine contains the printer driver and other software. The "Software
CD-ROM" consists of 2 discs.
• The CD-ROM does not include software for Mac OS 9.0 to 9.2.2/X v10.2.8/X v10.3.9.
Contact your dealer or nearest authorized service representative if you want software for Mac OS 9.0 to 9.2.2/
X v10.2.8/X v10.3.9.
• The CD-ROM does not include printer driver for PCL5c. Contact your dealer or nearest authorised service representative if
you want printer driver for PCL5c.
Disc 1
Software for Windows
• Printer driver
These allow the machine to be used as a printer.
- PCL6 printer driver
The machine supports the Hewlett-Packard PCL6 printer control languages.
- PS printer driver
The PS printer driver supports the PostScript 3 page description language developed by Adobe Systems
Incorporated.
- PPD driver
The PPD driver enables the machine to use the standard Windows PS printer driver.
☞ WHEN THE MACHINE IS CONNECTED TO A NETWORK (page 8)
☞ WHEN THE MACHINE WILL BE CONNECTED WITH A USB CABLE (page 17)
• Printer Status Monitor (can only be used when the machine is connected to a network)
This allows you to monitor the status of the machine on your computer screen.
☞ INSTALLING THE PRINTER STATUS MONITOR (page 25)
Software for Macintosh
• PPD file
This is the printer description file which enables the machine to be used as a PostScript 3 compatible printer.
The PS3 expansion kit is required to use the machine in a Macintosh environment.
☞ MAC OS X (page 32)
☞ MAC OS 9.0 - 9.2.2 (page 37)
2
CD-ROMS AND SOFTWARE
• The PS3 expansion kit is required to use the machine as a printer in a Macintosh environment. In addition,
the machine must be connected to a network. A USB connection cannot be used.
• The scanner driver and PC-Fax driver cannot be used in a Macintosh environment.
Disc 2
Software for Windows
• PC-Fax driver
This enables you to send a file from your computer as a fax using the same procedure as when printing the file.
(When the fax option is installed.)
Even if the fax function is not installed, the PC-Fax driver can be updated using the CD-ROM in the Internet fax
expansion kit to enable you to send a file from your computer as an Internet fax in the same way as you print a file.
☞ INSTALLING THE PRINTER DRIVER / PC-FAX DRIVER (page 8)
• Scanner driver (TWAIN driver)
(can only be used when the machine is connected to a network)
This allows you to use the scanner function of the machine from a TWAIN-compliant software application.
☞ INSTALLING THE SCANNER DRIVER (page 26)
OTHER CD-ROMS
X "PRINTER UTILITIES" CD-ROM that accompanies the PS3 expansion kit
(for Windows/Macintosh)
This contains the display fonts that are used with the PS printer driver.
(Install the PS printer driver and Macintosh PPD file from the "Software CD-ROM".)
☞ INSTALLING THE PS DISPLAY FONTS (page 28)
X "PRINTER UTILITIES" CD-ROM that accompanies the Internet fax
expansion kit (for Windows)
This CD-ROM is used to update the PC-Fax driver on the "Software CD-ROM" so that it can be used to send
Internet faxes (PC-I-Fax function).
If you wish to use the PC-I-Fax function, first install the PC-Fax driver from the "Software CD-ROM" and then run the
installer on this CD-ROM. If the PC-Fax driver is already installed, run only the installer. (There is no need to reinstall
the PC-Fax driver.)
☞ INSTALLING THE PRINTER DRIVER / PC-FAX DRIVER (page 8)
X "Sharpdesk/Network Scanner Utilities" CD-ROM (for Windows)
This contains software that helps you get the most out of the images that you scan on the machine. The software

CONNECTING THE MACHINE
CONNECTING TO A NETWORK
To connect the machine to a network, connect the LAN cable to the machine's network connector. Use a shielded LAN
cable.
After connecting the machine to a network, be sure to configure the IP address and other network settings before
installing the software. (The factory default setting for the IP address is to receive the IP address automatically when the
machine is used in a DHCP environment.)
Network settings can be configured using "Network Settings" in the system settings (administrator) on the machine.
• If the machine is used in a DHCP environment, the IP address of the machine may change. If this happens, printing will not
be possible. This problem can be avoided by using a WINS server or by assigning a permanent IP address to the machine.
• This manual explains how to set up the software in a Windows network environment and in a Macintosh network
environment.
• When using this machine on an IPv6 network, enable IPv6 setting in the "Network Settings" in the system settings
(administrator).
X Checking the IP address of the machine
You can check the IP address of the machine by printing out the "All Custom Setting List" in the system settings. Press
the [SYSTEM SETTINGS] key, touch the [List Print (User)] key, select "All Custom Setting List" and then touch the
[Print] key.
CONNECTING THE MACHINE WITH A USB CABLE
(Windows)
The machine can be connected to a computer using a USB cable if the computer is a Windows computer. (The USB
interface on the machine cannot be used in a Macintosh environment.)
The machine and computer should be connected while the printer driver is being installed. If a USB cable is connected
before the printer driver is installed, the printer driver will not be installed correctly. For the procedure for connecting a
USB cable, see "WHEN THE MACHINE WILL BE CONNECTED WITH A USB CABLE" (page 17).

X Printing using the IPP function and the SSL function
The IPP function can be used to print to the machine over a network using HTTP protocol.
When the machine is in a remote location, this function can be used in place of the fax function to print a higher quality
image than a fax. The IPP function can also be used in combination with the SSL (encrypted communication) function to
encrypt the print data. This enables secure printing with no concern that the data will be leaked to others.
To use the SSL function, configure the "SSL Settings" in the system settings (administrator) of the machine. To configure the
settings, see "SYSTEM SETTINGS" in the Operation Guide.
When the software selection screen appears in step 6 of "OPENING THE SOFTWARE SELECTION SCREEN (FOR
