BEFORE INSTALLATION
USING THE MACHINE IN A
WINDOWS ENVIRONMENT
CD-ROMS IN THE NETWORK EXPANSION KIT
The network expansion kit contains the following three CD-ROMs: "Software", "Network Utilities", and
"Sharpdesk LT".
1. "Software" CD-ROM
The "Software" CD-ROM contains the following software programs:
• Printer driver
The printer driver enables you to use the printer function of the machine.
The CD-ROM contains the PCL6 and PCL5e printer drivers*1 and the PS printer driver*2.
• Printer Status Monitor
This allows you to check the status of the network printer on your computer screen.
• Printer Administration Utility*3
This is a utility that allows administrators to check the status of the printer and change settings.
• NICManager
This is used to configure and check the IP address of the machine, which is used when the
machine is connected to a network.
• Acrobat Reader 5.0
Software that allows you to view the online printer manual on your computer.
Caution
The printer driver, Printer Status Monitor, Printer Administration Utility, and NICManager
utility on the "Software" CD-ROM cannot be used when the machine is connected to your
computer by a USB or parallel cable.
*1 It is recommended that you use the PCL6 printer driver. If you have a problem printing from older software
using the PCL6 printer driver, use the PCL5e printer driver.
*2 To use the PS printer driver, the PS3 expansion kit must be installed.
*3 If you are installing the Printer Administration Utility in Windows 95, a system file must be updated before
the utility can be installed. For more information, click the "Display Readme" button in the Software
Selection window of the installer. (p.21)

USING THE MACHINE IN A WINDOWS ENVIRONMENT
2. "Network Utilities" CD-ROM
This CD-ROM contains "Quick Setup" and "Standard Setup (NICManager)" which are used to
configure network settings, "SC-Print2000" which is used to create an LPR port, and an online manual
that explains network settings.
The online manual on the CD-ROM explains how to configure settings on a network other than a
TCP/IP network, such as a Netware, AppleTalk, or NetBEUI network.
Note
Caution
• SC-Print2000 is only used to create an LPR port in Windows 95/98/Me. If the printer driver is
installed as explained in this manual, the LPR port is created automatically and thus there is
normally no need to use SC-Print2000.
• NICManager is also contained in the "Software" CD-ROM. If the network settings are configured
as explained in this manual, NICManager in the "Software" CD-ROM is used to configure
machine settings.
• The term "Print Server Card" appears in the "Network Utilities" CD-ROM. Where "Print
Server Card" appears, please substitute "Network expansion kit".
• If you use the "Network Utilities" CD-ROM to configure network settings, be sure to check
the machine's Ethernet address (MAC address) by printing out the Printer Setting List as
explained in "CHECKING THE IP ADDRESS". (The message that appears in the CD-ROM
utility is not relevant.)
3. "Sharpdesk LT" CD-ROM
Install Sharpdesk LT (for Windows) from this CD-ROM. Sharpdesk LT is a desktop document
management application that makes it easy to start applications and file documents and images.
For information on the "Sharpdesk LT" CD-ROM and the procedure for installing Sharpdesk LT, see
operation manual for network scanner (PDF format).
HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
Check the following hardware and software requirements before installing the software.
Computer type
IBM PC/AT or compatible computer equipped with a 10Base-T/100Base-TX LAN
board
Operating system
Windows 95*1, Windows 98, Windows Me,
Windows NT Workstation 4.0 (Service Pack 5 or later)*2,
Windows 2000 Professional*2, Windows XP Professional*2,
Windows XP Home Edition*2
Other hardware requirements An environment that allows any of the above operating systems to fully operate
*1 If you are installing the Printer Administration Utility in Windows 95, a system file must be updated before the
utility can be installed. For more information, click the "Display Readme" button in the Software Selection
window of the installer.
*2 Administrator's rights are required to install the software using the installer.

USING THE MACHINE IN A
MACINTOSH ENVIRONMENT
To use the machine as a printer for the Macintosh, the PS3 expansion kit AR-PK1 must be installed.
Install the PPD file needed to use the machine as a printer from the "Software" CD-ROM that
accompanied the network expansion kit.
CD-ROMS IN THE NETWORK EXPANSION KIT
In a Macintosh environment, use the "Software" and "Network Utilities" CD-ROMs that are contained
in the network expansion kit.
1. "Software" CD-ROM
The "Software" CD-ROM contains the following software programs:
• PPD file
A Macintosh computer refers to the PPD file when using a printer driver for printing.
• Acrobat Reader 4.05
Software that allows you to view the online printer manual on your computer.
Caution
The PPD file on the "Software" CD-ROM cannot be used when the machine is connected to
your computer with a USB or parallel cable.
2. "Network Utilities" CD-ROM
The "Network Utilities" CD-ROM contains the following software programs:
• PSC Setup Utility
This is a utility that lets you configure the machine's network settings from a Macintosh.
Caution
The term "Print Server Card" appears in the "Network Utilities" CD-ROM. Where "Print
Server Card" appears, please substitute "Network expansion kit".
HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
You will need the following hardware and software in order to install the PPD file for Macintosh.
Operating system
CPU and RAM
Note
Mac OS 8.6 to 9.x, 10.1.5, and 10.2 to 10.2.8 (except 10.2.2)
Requirements of the operating system must be satisfied.
If you are using Mac OS 8.6 to 9.x, make sure that LaserWriter8 has been installed and that the
"LaserWriter8" checkbox is selected (
) in "Extensions Manager" in "Control Panels". If not,
install it from the system CD-ROM supplied with your Macintosh computer.
-8-
CONNECTING TO A NETWORK
After the network expansion kit has been installed in the
machine, connect a LAN cable to the LAN connector of
the network expansion kit.
Use a network cable that is shielded.
HOW TO RESET THE NETWORK EXPANSION KIT
To reset the network expansion kit, turn on the power while holding down the status button on the
network expansion kit. Continue to hold down the status button until a beep sounds.
Caution
Network scanner destination information and scanning settings will remain after the network
expansion kit is reset, however, the network settings and printer settings will revert to the factory
default settings.

automatically. If this happens, printing will no longer be possible. In this event, use a
WINS server or do not use the machine in a DHCP environment.
• If it becomes necessary to move the machine to a different network after the IP address
has been set, use either of the following methods to change the IP address setting before
moving the machine:
1) Set the IP address for the new network while the machine is still connected to the old network.
2) Reset the network expansion kit (see "HOW TO RESET THE NETWORK EXPANSION
KIT" on page 9).
If the machine is moved to the new network while the old IP address is still set, the
machine will not be detected and it will not be possible to set the new IP address.
