NOTE: This application is not available when the printer is connected locally to a computer.
Have you ever sent a print job to the network printer down the hall, only to find it didn't print because of a paper jam or
an empty paper tray? One of the features of the Dell Printer Configuration Web Tool is the E-mail Alert Setup, which
sends you, or the key operator, an e-mail when the printer needs supplies or intervention.
If you fill out printer inventory reports requiring the asset tag number of all of the printers in your area, the Dell Printer
Configuration Web Tool has a Printer Information feature that makes it easy. Type the IP address of each printer on the
network to display the asset tag number.
The Dell Printer Configuration Web Tool feature also lets you change printer settings and keep track of printing trends. If
you are a network administrator, you can easily copy the printer's settings to one or all printers on the network—right
from your Web browser.
To launch the Dell Printer Configuration Web Tool, type your network printer's IP address in your Web browser.
If you do not know what your printer's IP address is, print a network setup page, which lists the IP address.
To print a network setup page, press and release the Continue button

Printer Status—Get immediate feedback on printer supply status. When toner is running low, click the toner
supplies link on the first screen to order additional toner cartridges.
Printer Settings—Change printer settings, view the operator panel remotely, and update the print server
firmware.
Copy Printer Settings—Quickly clone the printer's settings to another printer or printers on the network by typing
each printer's IP address.
NOTE: You must be a network administrator to use this feature.

Manually Feeding a Print Job
The manual feeder is located at the front of your printer and can only feed one sheet of print media at a time.
When using the manual feeder, send the print job to the printer before loading the print media. When the printer is ready,
it displays the Load Manual Feeder light sequence, at which point you should load the media.
1. With your document open, click File® Print.
2. Click Properties (or Options, Printer, or Setup, depending on the application or operating system).
The Printing Preferences dialog box opens.
3. Click the Paper tab.
4. Select Manual paper from the Paper Tray drop-down list.
5. Make any necessary changes for your document.
6. Click OK.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
7. Click OK on the Print window to send the job to print.
The printer displays the Load Manual Feeder light sequence.
8. Place a sheet of the selected print media, print side facing up, at the center of the manual feeder, but only to the
point where its leading edge can contact the paper guides.
Insert envelopes with the flap side facing down and with the stamp area as shown.
Hold transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side. Oil from your fingers that is deposited
on the transparency can affect print quality.
Load letterhead facing up, with the top of the sheet entering the printer first.
If you experience problems with paper feed, turn the paper around.
9. Adjust the paper guides to the print media's width.
10. Hold both sides of the print media close to the manual feeder, and push it into the printer until it automatically
engages.
There is a brief pause between the time the printer engages the print media and when it feeds into the printer.
NOTICE: Do not force the print media into the feeder. Forcing the media causes jams.
Printing on Both Sides of the Paper
Printing on both sides of the paper reduces printing costs.
You can choose how you want your job duplexed: long edge or short edge.
Long edge means pages are bound along the long edge of the page (left edge for portrait, top edge for landscape).
Short edge means pages are bound along the short edge of the page (top edge for portrait, left edge for
landscape).

Printing Multiple Page Images on One Page (N-Up Printing)
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
The Multipage Printing (N-up) setting is used to print multiple page images on a single page. For example, 2-up means
two page images are printed on one page.
The printer uses the Multipage Order, Multipage View, and Multipage Border settings to determine the order and
orientation of the page images, and whether a border is printed around each page image.
1. With your document open, click File® Print.
2. Click Properties (or Options, Printer, or Setup, depending on the application or operating system).
The Printing Preferences dialog box opens.
3. In the Multipage printing (N-up) section, specify the number of pages you want printed on a sheet by typing a
number or using the arrows in the combo box.
4. Click OK.
5. Click OK on the Print window to send the job to print.
Printing a Booklet
The Booklet setting lets you print multiple pages in booklet form without having to re-format your document so the
pages print in the proper order. The pages print so the finished collated document may be folded along the center of each
page to form a booklet.
If the document contains many pages, a booklet may have too many pages to fold easily. If you are printing a fairly large
booklet, you might want to use the Sheets per Bundle option to specify how many physical pages are put into one
bundle. The printer prints the necessary number of bundles, which you can then bind into one booklet. Printing in bundles
helps the outside edge of the pages line up more evenly.
You must specify whether or not you want to print using any duplex printing options before you select to print using the
booklet function. Once you choose Print Using Booklet, the controls for the duplex options become inactive and remain
at the last setting used.
1. With your document open, click File® Print.
2. Click Properties (or Options, Printer, or Setup, depending on the application or operating system).
The Printing Preferences dialog box opens.

Printing on Letterhead
1. Ensure that the letterhead is properly loaded according to the paper source you are using:
Tray 1 or 2—Load the letterhead with the print side facing down. The top edge of the sheet with the logo
should be placed at the front of the tray.

Storing Supplies
Storing Print Media
Use the following guidelines for proper print media storage. These help avoid paper feeding problems and uneven print
quality.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
For best results, store print media in an environment where the temperature is approximately 21°C (70°F) and the
relative humidity is 40%.
Store cartons of print media on a pallet or shelf, rather than directly on the floor.
If you store individual packages of print media out of the original carton, ensure that they rest on a flat surface so
the edges do not buckle or curl.
Do not place anything on top of the print media packages.
Storing the Toner Cartridge
Store the toner cartridge in the original packaging until you are ready to install it.
Do not store the toner in:
Temperatures greater than 40°C (104°F).
An environment with extreme changes in humidity or temperature.
Direct sunlight.
Dusty places.
A car for a long period of time.
An environment where corrosive gases are present.
An environment with salty air.
Replacing the Toner Cartridge
You can determine approximately how much toner is left in your cartridge by printing the printer settings configuration
sheet. This helps you decide when you might need to order replacement supplies.
The Toner low light sequence is displayed when the toner cartridge is nearly empty. You can still print for a short time
while this sequence is displayed, but print quality decreases as the toner level decreases.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
When the Toner low light sequence appears, or when you experience faded print, remove the toner cartridge. Firmly
shake it side-to-side and front-to-back several times to redistribute the toner, and then reinsert it and continue printing.
Repeat this procedure multiple times until print remains faded. When the print remains faded, replace the toner cartridge.
1. Open the front cover by pressing the button on the left side of the printer and lowering the cover.
2. Press the button on the base of the toner cartridge assembly.
3. Pull the toner cartridge up and out using the handle.
4. Unpack the new toner cartridge.
NOTICE: When replacing a toner cartridge, do not leave the new cartridge exposed to direct light for an
extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.
5. Rotate the cartridge in all directions to distribute the toner.
6. Install the new toner cartridge by aligning the white rollers on the toner cartridge with the arrows on the tracks of
the imaging drum and pushing the toner cartridge in as far as it will go. The cartridge clicks into place when
correctly installed.

7. Close the front cover.
Replacing the Imaging Drum
You can determine approximately how full the imaging drum is by printing the printer settings configuration sheet. This
helps you decide when you might need to order replacement supplies.
To ensure print quality and to avoid damage to the printer, the printer stops operating after the imaging drum has
reached a maximum of 40,000 pages. The printer automatically notifies you before the imaging drum reaches this point.
When you first receive the Replace imaging drum light sequence, you should immediately order a new imaging drum.
While the printer may continue to function properly after the imaging drum has reached its official end-of-life
(approximately 30,000 pages), print quality significantly decreases until the imaging drum stops operating at the
maximum of 40,000 pages.
NOTICE: When replacing a toner cartridge, do not leave the new cartridge exposed to direct light for an extended
period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.

MIB Compatibility
A Management Information Base (MIB) is a database containing information about network devices (such as adapters,
bridges, routers, or computers). This information helps network administrators manage the network (analyze
performance, traffic, errors, and so on). This printer complies with standard industry MIB specifications, allowing the
printer to be recognized and managed by various printer and network management software systems, such as Dell
OpenManage™, IT Assistant, Hewlett-Packard OpenView, CA Unicenter, Hewlett-Packard Web JetAdmin, Lexmark
MarkVision Professional, and so on.

Print Media Guidelines
Selecting the right paper or other media reduces printing problems. For best print quality, try a sample of the paper or
specialty media you are considering before buying large quantities.
CAUTION: Your product uses a printing process that heats the print media, and heat can cause certain
media to release emissions. You must understand the section in your operating instructions that
discusses the guidelines for selecting appropriate print media to avoid the possibility of harmful
emissions.
Use 20 lb (70 g/m 2 ) xerographic paper.
Use transparencies designed for laser printers.
Use paper labels designed for laser printers.
Use envelopes made from 24 lb (90 g/m 2 ) bond paper. To reduce paper jams, do not use envelopes that:
Have excessive curl.
Are stuck together.
Contain windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or embossing.
Use metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars.
Have postage stamps attached.
Have any exposed adhesive when the flap is in the sealed position.
Use card stock with a maximum weight of 163 g/m 2 and a minimum size of 3x5 in. (76.2x127 mm).
Use Letter or A4 only if you are using the automatic duplexing unit.

Loading the 250-Sheet and 550-Sheet Paper Trays
Follow these instructions to load paper in the 250-sheet and 550-sheet paper trays.
1. Remove the tray.
2. If you are loading legal or folio size paper, you must adjust the paper tray to accommodate the larger paper.
a. Press down on the latch at the back of the tray.
b. Expand the tray until the extender locks into place.
c. Move the rear paper guide to the back of the paper tray.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
3. Flex a stack of paper back and forth. Straighten the edges on a level surface.
4. Load the paper in the tray with the print side facing down.
Ensure that the paper is below the max fill line on the side paper guides. Overloading may cause paper jams.
5. Slide the two side guides and the rear guide until they rest against the edges of the paper.
6. Replace the tray.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
7. Extend the paper support on the output bin.
Loading the Manual Feeder
The manual feeder is located at the front of your printer and can only feed one sheet of print media at a time. You can
use the manual feeder to make quick runs of paper types or sizes that are not currently loaded in the paper tray.
To load the manual feeder:
1. Place a sheet of the selected print media, print side facing up, at the center of the manual feeder, but only to the
point where its leading edge can contact the paper guides. Otherwise, the printer engages the print media too soon
and likely skews the print job.
2. Adjust the paper guides to the print media's width.
3. Hold both sides of the print media close to the manual feeder, and push it into the printer until it automatically
engages.
There is a brief pause between the time the printer engages the print media and when it feeds into the printer.
NOTICE: Do not force the print media into the feeder. Forcing the media causes jams.
Insert envelopes with the flap side facing down and with the stamp area as shown.
Hold transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side. Oil from your fingers that is deposited on the
transparency can affect print quality.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Load letterhead facing up, with the top of the sheet entering the printer first.
If you experience problems with paper feed, turn the paper around.
Using the Rear Exit
The single-sheet rear exit provides a straight-through paper path to help reduce curling and potential jams. This is
especially useful for specialty media, such as transparencies, envelopes, labels, card stock, or index cards.
To use the rear exit, open the rear exit door. When the rear exit door is open, all print jobs come out the rear exit. When
closed, all print jobs are sent to the output bin on top of the printer.

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU
General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the
software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software
and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered
by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to
make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that
you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free
programs; and that you know you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to
surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software,
or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the
rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them
these terms so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal
permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty
for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that
what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors'
reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of
a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have
made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.
GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may
be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work,
and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say,
a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as
"you". Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its
scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents
constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true
depends on what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided
that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty;
keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of
the Program a copy of this License along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in
exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program,
and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of
these conditions:
a. You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any
change.
b. You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the
Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
c. If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for
such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate copyright
notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute
the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program
itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to
print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the
Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same
sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless
of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the
intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the
Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form
under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a. Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the
terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b. Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to
be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
c. Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This
alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or
executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work,
complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files,
plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source
code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
itself accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering
equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though
third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any
attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your
rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have
their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission
to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this
License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your
acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or
works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a
license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You
may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible
for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to
patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the
conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to
satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the
Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and
this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section
is intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest
validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution
system, which is implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide
range of software distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the
author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted
interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical
distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus
excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.

9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to time.
Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or
concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which
applies to it and "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of
any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this
License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution conditions are different,
write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the
Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of
preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of software
generally.
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE
EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS
AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR
IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.
SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR
CORRECTION.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER,
OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO
YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF
THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO
OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest possible use to the public, the best way to achieve
this is to make it free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most
effectively convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the "copyright" line and a pointer to where
the full notice is found.

This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into proprietary programs. If your program is a
subroutine library, you may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the library. If this is
what you want to do, use the GNU Library General Public License instead of this License.
GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2.1, February 1999
Copyright (C) 1991, 1999 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
[This is the first released version of the Lesser GPL. It also counts as the successor of the GNU Library Public License,
version 2, hence the version number 2.1.]
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU
General Public Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the
software is free for all its users.
This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to some specially designated software packages--typically
libraries--of the Free Software Foundation and other authors who decide to use it. You can use it too, but we suggest you
first think carefully about whether this license or the ordinary General Public License is the better strategy to use in any
particular case, based on the explanations below.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom of use, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish);
that you receive source code or can get it if you want it; that you can change the software and use pieces of it in new free
programs; and that you are informed that you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid distributors to deny you these rights or to ask you to
surrender these rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the library
or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights
that we gave you. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. If you link other code with the
library, you must provide complete object files to the recipients, so that they can relink them with the library after making
changes to the library and recompiling it. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright the library, and (2) we offer you this license, which gives
you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear that there is no warranty for the free library. Also, if the library
is modified by someone else and passed on, the recipients should know that what they have is not the original version, so
that the original author's reputation will not be affected by problems that might be introduced by others.
Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the existence of any free program. We wish to make sure that a
company cannot effectively restrict the users of a free program by obtaining a restrictive license from a patent holder.
Therefore, we insist that any patent license obtained for a version of the library must be consistent with the full freedom
of use specified in this license.
Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the ordinary GNU General Public License. This license, the GNU
Lesser General Public License, applies to certain designated libraries, and is quite different from the ordinary General
Public License. We use this license for certain libraries in order to permit linking those libraries into non-free programs.
When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or using a shared library, the combination of the two is legally
speaking a combined work, a derivative of the original library. The ordinary General Public License therefore permits such
linking only if the entire combination fits its criteria of freedom. The Lesser General Public License permits more lax
criteria for linking other code with the library.
We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it does Less to protect the user's freedom than the
ordinary General Public License. It also provides other free software developers Less of an advantage over competing nonfree programs. These disadvantages are the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many libraries.
However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain special circumstances.
For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to encourage the widest possible use of a certain library, so
that it becomes a de-facto standard. To achieve this, non-free programs must be allowed to use the library. A more
frequent case is that a free library does the same job as widely used non-free libraries. In this case, there is little to gain
by limiting the free library to free software only, so we use the Lesser General Public License.
In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free programs enables a greater number of people to use a
large body of free software. For example, permission to use the GNU C Library in non-free programs enables many more
people to use the whole GNU operating system, as well as its variant, the GNU/Linux operating system.
Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the users' freedom, it does ensure that the user of a
program that is linked with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run that program using a modified version
of the Library.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow. Pay close attention to the difference
between a "work based on the library" and a "work that uses the library". The former contains code derived from the
library, whereas the latter must be combined with the library in order to run.
GNU LESSER GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License Agreement applies to any software library or other program which contains a notice placed by the
copyright holder or other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms of this Lesser General Public
License (also called "this License"). Each licensee is addressed as "you".
A "library" means a collection of software functions and/or data prepared so as to be conveniently linked with application
programs (which use some of those functions and data) to form executables.
The "Library", below, refers to any such software library or work which has been distributed under these terms. A "work
based on the Library" means either the Library or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work
containing the Library or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated straightforwardly into
another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".)
"Source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For a library, complete
source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the
scripts used to control compilation and installation of the library.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
act of running a program using the Library is not restricted, and output from such a program is covered only if its
contents constitute a work based on the Library (independent of the use of the Library in a tool for writing it). Whether
that is true depends on what the Library does and what the program that uses the Library does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Library's complete source code as you receive it, in any medium,
provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of
warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and distribute a copy
of this License along with the Library.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in
exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Library, and
copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of
these conditions:
a. The modified work must itself be a software library.
b. You must cause the files modified to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any
change.
c. You must cause the whole of the work to be licensed at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.
d. If a facility in the modified Library refers to a function or a table of data to be supplied by an application program that
uses the facility, other than as an argument passed when the facility is invoked, then you must make a good faith effort
to ensure that, in the event an application does not supply such function or table, the facility still operates, and performs
whatever part of its purpose remains meaningful.
(For example, a function in a library to compute square roots has a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of
the application. Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any application-supplied function or table used by this function
must be optional: if the application does not supply it, the square root function must still compute square roots.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the
Library, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its
terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same
sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Library, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless
of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the
intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Library.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Library with the Library (or with a work based on the
Library) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public License instead of this License to a given copy of
the Library. To do this, you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so that they refer to the ordinary GNU
General Public License, version 2, instead of to this License. (If a newer version than version 2 of the ordinary GNU
General Public License has appeared, then you can specify that version instead if you wish.) Do not make any other
change in these notices.
Once this change is made in a given copy, it is irreversible for that copy, so the ordinary GNU General Public License
applies to all subsequent copies and derivative works made from that copy.
This option is useful when you wish to copy part of the code of the Library into a program that is not a library.
4. You may copy and distribute the Library (or a portion or derivative of it, under Section 2) in object code or executable
form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you accompany it with the complete corresponding
machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
customarily used for software interchange.
If distribution of object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access
to copy the source code from the same place satisfies the requirement to distribute the source code, even though third
parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
5. A program that contains no derivative of any portion of the Library, but is designed to work with the Library by being
compiled or linked with it, is called a "work that uses the Library". Such a work, in isolation, is not a derivative work of the
Library, and therefore falls outside the scope of this License.
However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the Library creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library
(because it contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work that uses the library". The executable is therefore
covered by this License. Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
When a "work that uses the Library" uses material from a header file that is part of the Library, the object code for the
work may be a derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not. Whether this is true is especially
significant if the work can be linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a library. The threshold for this to be true is
not precisely defined by law.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
If such an object file uses only numerical parameters, data structure layouts and accessors, and small macros and small
inline functions (ten lines or less in length), then the use of the object file is unrestricted, regardless of whether it is
legally a derivative work. (Executables containing this object code plus portions of the Library will still fall under Section
6.)
Otherwise, if the work is a derivative of the Library, you may distribute the object code for the work under the terms of
Section 6. Any executables containing that work also fall under Section 6, whether or not they are linked directly with the
Library itself.
6. As an exception to the Sections above, you may also combine or link a "work that uses the Library" with the Library to
produce a work containing portions of the Library, and distribute that work under terms of your choice, provided that the
terms permit modification of the work for the customer's own use and reverse engineering for debugging such
modifications.
You must give prominent notice with each copy of the work that the Library is used in it and that the Library and its use
are covered by this License. You must supply a copy of this License. If the work during execution displays copyright
notices, you must include the copyright notice for the Library among them, as well as a reference directing the user to the
copy of this License. Also, you must do one of these things:
a. Accompany the work with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code for the Library including whatever
changes were used in the work (which must be distributed under Sections 1 and 2 above); and, if the work is an
executable linked with the Library, with the complete machine-readable "work that uses the Library", as object code
and/or source code, so that the user can modify the Library and then relink to produce a modified executable containing
the modified Library. (It is understood that the user who changes the contents of definitions files in the Library will not
necessarily be able to recompile the application to use the modified definitions.)
b. Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the Library. A suitable mechanism is one that (1) uses at run
time a copy of the library already present on the user's computer system, rather than copying library functions into the
executable, and (2) will operate properly with a modified version of the library, if the user installs one, as long as the
modified version is interface-compatible with the version that the work was made with.
c. Accompany the work with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give the same user the materials specified in
Subsection 6a, above, for a charge no more than the cost of performing this distribution.
d. If distribution of the work is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, offer equivalent access to copy
the above specified materials from the same place.
e. Verify that the user has already received a copy of these materials or that you have already sent this user a copy.
For an executable, the required form of the "work that uses the Library" must include any data and utility programs
needed for reproducing the executable from it. However, as a special exception, the materials to be distributed need not
include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler,
kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the
executable.
It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license restrictions of other proprietary libraries that do not normally
accompany the operating system. Such a contradiction means you cannot use both them and the Library together in an
executable that you distribute.
7. You may place library facilities that are a work based on the Library side-by-side in a single library together with other
library facilities not covered by this License, and distribute such a combined library, provided that the separate distribution
of the work based on the Library and of the other library facilities is otherwise permitted, and provided that you do these
two things:
a. Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work based on the Library, uncombined with any other library
facilities. This must be distributed under the terms of the Sections above.
b. Give prominent notice with the combined library of the fact that part of it is a work based on the Library, and
explaining where to find the accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
8. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute the Library except as expressly provided under this
License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, link with, or distribute the Library is void, and will
automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you
under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
9. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission
to modify or distribute the Library or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this
License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Library (or any work based on the Library), you indicate your
acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Library or
works based on it.
10. Each time you redistribute the Library (or any work based on the Library), the recipient automatically receives a
license from the original licensor to copy, distribute, link with or modify the Library subject to these terms and conditions.
You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not
responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.

11. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to
patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the
conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to
satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
may not distribute the Library at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the
Library by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and
this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Library.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section
is intended to apply, and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest
validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution

author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.
12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted
interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Library under this License may add an explicit geographical
distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus
excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
13. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the Lesser General Public License from time
to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems
or concerns. Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Library specifies a version number of this
License which applies to it and "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of
that version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Library does not specify a license
version number, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
14. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Library into other free programs whose distribution conditions are incompatible
with these, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation,
write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two
goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of
software generally.
NO WARRANTY
15. BECAUSE THE LIBRARY IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE LIBRARY, TO THE EXTENT
PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE LIBRARY "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE LIBRARY IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
LIBRARY PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
16. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER,
OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE LIBRARY AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO
YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF
THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE LIBRARY (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE LIBRARY TO
OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER SOFTWARE), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
How to Apply These Terms to Your New Libraries
If you develop a new library, and you want it to be of the greatest possible use to the public, we recommend making it
free software that everyone can redistribute and change. You can do so by permitting redistribution under these terms
(or, alternatively, under the terms of the ordinary General Public License).
To apply these terms, attach the following notices to the library. It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file
to most effectively convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the "copyright" line and a pointer
to where the full notice is found.

For basic printer functionality, install printer software, and use a system network printer port, such as a Line Printer
Remote (LPR) or a standard TCP/IP port. The printer software and port let you maintain a consistent user interface for use
with all the printers on the network. Using a custom network port provides enhanced functionality, such as printer status
alerts.

Shared Printing
You can use Microsoft's Point and Print or Peer-to-Peer methods to share a printer on the network with a USB or parallel
cable connection. In order to use one of these methods, you must first share the printer and then install the shared
printer on client computers.
However, if you use one of these Microsoft methods, you will not have all the Dell features, such as the Status Monitor,
that are installed using the Drivers and Utilities CD.
NOTE: Windows Vista, Windows XP Professional, and Windows NT require that you have administrative access to
share a printer.
Share the Printer
1. For Windows XP (default Start menu):
a. Click Start® Control Panel.
b. Double-click Printers and Other Hardware.
c. Double-click Printers and Faxes.
For Windows XP (Classic Start menu): Click Start® Settings® Printers and Faxes.
For Windows Vista (Classic Start menu) and all other Windows versions: Click Start® Settings® Printers.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
For Windows Vista (default Start menu):
a. Click
® Control Panel.
b. Click Hardware and Sound.
c. Click Printers.
2. Right-click your printer.
3. Click Sharing.
4. If you are using Windows Vista, you may be prompted to change the sharing options before you can continue. Press
the Change Sharing Options button, and then press Continue on the next dialog box.
5. Select Share this printer, and then type a name for the printer.
6. Click Additional Drivers, and then select the operating systems of all network clients printing to this printer.
7. Click OK.
If you are missing files, you are prompted to insert the server operating system CD.
a. Insert the Drivers and Utilities CD, ensure that the drive letter is correct for your CD-ROM drive, and then
click OK.
b. If you are using Windows Vista: Browse to a client computer running the operating system, and then click
OK.
For all other Windows versions: Insert the operating system CD, ensure that the drive letter is correct for
your CD-ROM drive, and then click OK.
8. Click Close.
To check that the printer was successfully shared:
Ensure that the printer object in the Printers folder shows it is shared. For example, in Windows 2000, a hand is
shown underneath the printer icon.
Browse My Network Places or Network Neighborhood. Find the host name of the server, and look for the
shared name you assigned to the printer.
Now that the printer is shared, you can install the printer on network clients using the Point and Print method or the Peerto-Peer method.
Install the Shared Printer on Client Computers
Point and Print
This method is the best use of system resources. The printer server handles driver modifications and print job processing.
This lets network clients return to their programs much faster.
If you use the Point and Print method, a subset of software information is copied from the print server to the client
computer. This is just enough information to send a print job to the printer.
1. On the Windows desktop of the client computer, double-click My Network Places or Network Neighborhood.
2. Double-click the host name of the print server computer.
3. Right-click the shared printer name, and then click Install or Connect.
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
Wait for the software information to copy from the print server computer to the client computer, and for a new
printer object to be added to the Printers folder. The time this takes varies, based on network traffic and other
factors.
4. Close My Network Places or Network Neighborhood.
5. Print a test page to verify printer installation.
