CONNECTING TO THE NETWORK
This chapter summarizes the stages in setting up the Fiery Controller.
Fiery Controller on the network
When the Fiery Controller is connected to a network, it behaves as a networked printer. The
Fiery Controller supports the following network protocols (rules that enable computers on a
network to communicate with each other):
• AppleTalk, Bonjour
• TCP/IP, which also includes the BOOTP, DHCP, FTP, HTTP, IMAP, IPP, IPv4, IPv6,
LDAP, LPD, NBT, POP3, Port 9100, SMB, SMTP, SNMP, SNTP, and SSL/TLS
protocols
These protocols can run concurrently on the same cable. Computers that use other protocols
can print through a server that uses one of the supported protocols. The Fiery Controller is
auto-sensing, and handles all connections simultaneously.
Stages of installation on the network
Installation can be performed by a network or printing administrator. The stages of a
successful installation are:
1 Configuring the network environment
Configure network servers to provide users with access to the Fiery Controller as a networked
printer. For information about configuring network servers in Windows and UNIX network
environments as they relate specifically to the Fiery Controller, see page 11. For information
about using your network, see your network documentation.
2 Physically connecting the Fiery Controller to a functioning network
Prepare a network node for the Fiery Controller. Obtain cable, route it to the location where
the Fiery Controller is to be installed, and attach the cable to the network connector of the
Fiery Controller. For details, see page 18.
3 Setting up the Fiery Controller
Configure the Fiery Controller for your printing and network environment (see page 24).
4 Preparing user computers for printing
Install the files needed for printing, install user software, and connect the user computers to
the network. The software installation is described in Printing from Windows and Printing
from Mac OS.

Network server setup requirements
This section provides basic information about configuring the Fiery Controller
and using it on the network. It does not explain network functions for printing in general.
Only information specific to the Fiery Controller is presented. Setting up the network
environment correctly requires the presence and active cooperation of the network
administrator. Detailed instructions for configuring networks is beyond the scope of this
document. For information, see your network documentation.
Configure the network and servers, and ensure that there is a live network connection
before you configure Fiery Controller network settings in Setup. This allows the
Fiery Controller to query the network for zones, servers, and server-based queues.
Whenever you change the configuration of the Fiery Controller, copier, or network at your
site, alter the settings to correspond to the changed environment. Changing network or port
settings may require that you make changes to other Setup options, as well.
Windows networks
• The Fiery Controller requires a valid IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address.
Enter these addresses manually or use DHCP or BOOTP protocols to assign them
dynamically. Make sure the Fiery Controller name and address are listed in a domain name
server (DNS) or hosts name database used by your system.
If more than one Fiery Controller print connection is published (for example, if both the
Print queue and the Hold queue are published), consider creating a printer for each print
connection, so that users can print to each connection directly.
• Configure the Fiery Controller with the correct Windows domain name.
This is especially important for Windows printing, also known as SMB printing.
To use Microsoft Active Directory, you must assign the Fiery Controller to a domain.
If you assign the Fiery Controller to a workgroup, you cannot use Active Directory.
AppleTalk networks
AppleShare servers require no special configuration.
To allow Mac OS X computers to access Bonjour printers, you must enable Bonjour on the
Fiery Controller.
CONNECTING TO
THE
NETWORK
12
UNIX networks
• When you configure a UNIX workstation with the lpr protocol and connect to the Fiery
Controller over a TCP/IP network, you can print directly to the Fiery Controller.
• Setting up UNIX workstations requires an administrator with root privileges. After the initial
configuration, UNIX users submit print jobs to a named printer.
• The Fiery Controller is a printer controller that understands lpr protocols.
• The Fiery Controller has a remote printer name you must use in order to communicate with it
successfully.
Regardless of the UNIX system you use, the name you use for the remote printer (or rp in
the /etc/printcap file) in configuring the network for the Fiery Controller must be one of the
following:
print
hold
Computers on a TCP/IP network can print directly to the Fiery Controller as a remote
printer, or can print to a Windows 2000/Server 2003 server or UNIX workstation acting as a
print server.
PREPARING
FOR FIERY CONTROLLER SETUP
13
PREPARING FOR FIERY CONTROLLER SETUP
To prepare for printing at your site, you must do some initial Fiery Controller configuration
(or “Setup”) to specify the network environment and the types of printing you do. Before you
perform Setup, decide the levels of access to implement, such as passwords and other security
features that the Fiery Controller offers. Because many of these security features are
interconnected, review the information in this chapter to plan for an effective security system,
and then perform Setup accordingly.
Levels of access and control
When you configure the Fiery Controller during Setup, you implement a particular level of
control by configuring these elements:
• Users and Groups
• Print connections
• Access to WebTools
Users and Groups
With WebTools Configure, you create users, assign passwords to users, create groups with
particular privileges, and assign users to the groups. Several groups are provided by default,
and you can create new groups. All users in a group have the same privileges.
In addition to assigning the users that you have created to a group, you can add users
from your organization’s global address list if you have LDAP services enabled on the
Fiery Controller.
The following discussion is an overview designed to help you prepare a security strategy.
For more information, including specific procedures, see WebTools Configure Help.
User authentication
The term “user authentication” means the Fiery Controller verifies that the user who is
sending a job belongs to a group, and the group has printing privileges (“Print in B&W” or
“Print in Color and B&W”).
By default, the Fiery Controller does not enforce user authentication. That is, even if you
assign passwords to users and assign the users to groups, no authentication occurs unless you
clear the “Allow users to print without authentication” checkbox (in Configure > Users and
Groups). If this option is selected, anyone can print to the Fiery Controller.
PREPARING
FOR FIERY CONTROLLER SETUP
14
If you require users to specify their user name and password (that is, you have cleared the
“Allow users to print without authentication” checkbox), users must type this information in
the printer driver when they print. Also, users must specify their user name and password if
they create files from the printer driver for printing later (such as an e-mail attachment that
will be sent to the Fiery Controller).
Because jobs that are sent through FTP do not require a printer driver, you can specify that
FTP jobs are authenticated (see Configure > Network > Services > FTP > Require Password
for Printing).
Passwords
When you create a new user in WebTools Configure > Users and Groups, you assign a
password to the user. In other areas of the system, you can also set passwords for these areas:
• Default admin user in Administrators group
• Default operator user in Operators group
By default, the Administrator password is set on the Fiery Controller. Change the
Administrator password periodically to protect the Fiery Controller from accidental or
malicious changes to Setup. For more information, see “Setting passwords” on page 29.
Users in the Administrators and Operators groups have privileges in addition to the explicit
ones that you set when you create groups. Examples of these privileges are provided in the
following sections.
Administrator privileges
Users in the Administrators group have the highest level of control. Administrator privileges
include:
• Configuring the Fiery Controller from the Configure WebTool
• Adding and deleting groups
• Adding and deleting users
• Setting and changing passwords for users
• Deleting, printing, exporting, and viewing the Job Log
• Deleting, viewing, and modifying users’ print jobs
• Clearing the Fiery Controller of all job data
• Printing in black-and-white or color
• Publishing print connections
• Deleting fonts
• Controlling print jobs from the job management tools
• Overriding job settings
PREPARING
FOR FIERY CONTROLLER SETUP
15
• Setting default settings for print options
• Calibrating the Fiery Controller
Operator privileges
Users in the Operators group control print jobs from the job management tools, including
the following:
• Viewing the Job Log
• Deleting, viewing, and modifying other users’ print jobs
• Printing in black-and-white or color
Guest privileges (no password)
A user does not need a password to log on as a Guest from the job management tools.
A Guest can view the status of active jobs but cannot make changes to jobs or to the
Fiery Controller state.
Fiery Controller print connections
The Fiery Controller supports three print connections: Hold queue, Print queue, and Direct
connection. You enable, or “publish,” these print connections to users on the network when
you configure Printer Setup. All published connections are constantly checked for the
presence of jobs. The Print queue and Direct connection give users more direct access to the
Fiery Controller than the Hold queue. Therefore, do not publish the Print queue and the
Direct connection in environments where maximum control is required.
In addition, you can enable the Printed queue, which is a storage area for the most recent jobs
from the Print queue. The Printed queue allows users to reprint those jobs by using the job
management tools (for example, Command WorkStation).
N OTE : To use the utilities and WebTools, you must enable at least one print connection.
Hold queue
Jobs sent to the Hold queue are spooled to the Fiery Controller hard disk for printing
at a later time, or for reprinting. Because the Hold queue is a storage area, jobs sent to it
cannot proceed through the printing process until the operator intervenes using the job
management tools.
Print queue
The Print queue is the standard Fiery Controller queue. Jobs sent to the Print queue are
processed and printed in the order in which they are received. Jobs prioritized by an operator
with the job management tools and jobs sent via the Direct connection take priority over jobs
sent to the Print queue.
PREPARING
FOR FIERY CONTROLLER SETUP
16
Direct connection
The Direct connection transmits jobs directly to the Fiery Controller, but only when the Fiery
Controller is idle. If the Fiery Controller is busy, the job remains at the user’s computer until
the Fiery Controller is ready. The job is then processed as soon as the previous job is finished
and before the next queued job is processed.
In most cases, jobs sent to the Direct connection are not stored on the Fiery Controller hard
disk, and cannot be selected for reprinting, moving, or deletion. Therefore, the Direct
connection provides a measure of security for sensitive files. Jobs sent to the Direct connection
do appear in the Job Log, for accounting purposes.
Some types of jobs printed to the Direct connection cause temporary files to be stored
on the Fiery Controller hard disk, but do not appear in any of the job management tools.
These job types are the following:
• PDF jobs
• TIFF jobs
• Jobs with settings for any of these print options:
– Reverse order printing (for large jobs)
– Booklet Maker
– Mixed Media
– Combine Separations
N OTE : To download fonts to the Fiery Controller, you must publish the Direct connection.
WebTools
The Fiery Controller supports Internet or intranet access with WebTools from Windows and
Mac OS computers. To enable use of WebTools, see “Configuring WebTools” on page 27.
Home
Home provides you with current information about the jobs processing and printing
on the Fiery Controller. To use this WebTool, you do not need a password.
For more information, see Utilities.
Downloads
Downloads allows users to download installers for printer drivers and other software directly
from the Fiery Controller. To use this WebTool, you do not need a password. For more
information, see Printing from Windows, Printing from Mac OS, and Utilities.

Docs
Docs allows users to access, manage, and modify jobs in their mailboxes on the Fiery
Controller, and submit jobs to the Fiery Controller. For more information, see WebTools
Docs Help.
Configure
Configure allows you to view and modify Fiery Controller options from a network computer.
This function requires an Administrator password. For more information, see page 24.
Additional security features
In addition to the traditional security features such as passwords, you can use these features to
keep the Fiery Controller secure:
• E-mail access
• IP addresses and ports, and MAC addresses
• LDAP authentication
Controlling E-mail access to the Fiery Controller
Because you can allow users to print file attachments in e-mail messages sent to the
Fiery Controller, the Fiery Controller accepts only valid attachments (for example, PostScript
or PDF files). Typically, viruses transmitted via e-mail require execution by the receiver.
Attachments that are not valid files are discarded by the Fiery Controller.
Because file types such as .BAT, .VBS, and .EXE could launch harmful virus activity, the
Fiery Controller does not process these file types. The Fiery Controller also ignores e-mails in
RTF (Rich Text Format) or HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) format, and any included
JavaScript code.
You can define lists of authorized e-mail addresses on the Fiery Controller. Any e-mail that the
Fiery Controller receives from an e-mail address not in the authorized list is deleted. For more
information, see page 33.
Restricting IP addresses and ports, and MAC addresses
To restrict unauthorized connections to the Fiery Controller, you can permit only users whose
IP addresses or MAC addresses are within a defined range. You can also close unnecessary
ports to reject inbound access from the network. Commands or jobs sent from unauthorized
IP addresses or ports are ignored by the Fiery Controller.

LDAP authentication
When you enable LDAP communication to retrieve names and other information for people
at your organization, you can specify the type of authentication. For more information, see
WebTools Configure Help.

About Setup
Setup configures the Fiery Controller to communicate with other devices and to manage print
jobs. Perform Setup the first time you turn on the Fiery Controller after new system software
is loaded, or any time Server software is reinstalled. When the network or user printing
environment changes, change the options accordingly.

Setting passwords
You can set or change the passwords for users of the Fiery Controller. Anyone who is a
member of the Administrators group can modify the Setup options and control the flow and
order of print jobs with the job management tools.
To create users, assign passwords, and add users to groups, use Configure. For more
information, see WebTools Configure Help.
For more information about Administrator and Operator passwords and the access privileges
they allow, see page 14.
Keep track of the passwords that you set.
Passwords from a network computer
You can change the Administrator and Operator passwords from WebTools Configure or
Command WorkStation, Windows Edition. For more information, see Configure Help.
Updating system software
The Fiery Controller uses unique system software to receive and process jobs and send job
data to the copier. Resident on the Fiery Controller, system software processes and controls
the spooling, rasterizing, and printing of jobs, as well as job accounting (the Job Log), storage,
and retrieval.
You can check for system software updates from a secure site on the Internet. Updates to user
software may also be available. Several methods of notification and installation are provided.
To check for software updates or to configure the Fiery Controller to receive updates
automatically, see WebTools Configure Help.
N OTE : If you choose to be notified of updates, the notification message may appear on the
copier touch panel.

Clearing the Fiery Controller
The Clear Server command allows you to clear all queued print jobs from the Fiery Controller
Print, Hold, and Printed queues. Jobs can also be deleted, either individually or as a group,
using Command WorkStation. Clear Server also clears all jobs archived on the
Fiery Controller hard disk, the index of archived jobs, and all FreeForm masters.
TO CLEAR THE FIERY CONTROLLER FROM COMMAND WORKSTATION
• In Command WorkStation, choose Clear Server from the Server menu.
For more information, see Command WorkStation Help.
Back up your original data on your own media at the same time you store and save data on the
Fiery Controller hard disk. Never damage or reset the Fiery Controller hard disk, and do not
turn off the system while accessing the hard disk. For instructions on how to turn on and turn
off the Fiery Controller, see page 39.
If the Fiery Controller hard disk or system software experiences technical difficulties,
data stored and saved on the Fiery Controller hard disk may be irretrievably lost. If problems
with the hard disk occur, extended storage of the following data cannot be assured:
• Third-party fonts
• Print jobs
• Color profiles, including profiles downloaded or edited with Spot-On
• Job notes and instructions
• Jobs edited with Impose
• Variable data documents
• E-mail Service Address Book
• Fiery Controller configuration information (list of all the settings in effect for the current
Setup)
ADMINISTERING THE FIERY CONTROLLER

Remote connection to the Fiery Controller
You can access the Fiery Controller from a remote Windows computer.
TO CONNECT TO THE FIERY CONTROLLER FROM A REMOTE COMPUTER
1 Enable the Remote Desktop option in Setup.
From Configure, choose Server > General > Enable Remote Desktop.
2 From the remote computer, choose Start > Programs > Accessories > Communications >
Remote Desktop Connection.
3 Type the IP address or DNS name of the Fiery Controller and click Connect.
4 Type the Administrator password, if prompted.
Restoring Fiery Controller settings
You can restore the Fiery Controller to a group of settings that you have already saved.
Saving and restoring Fiery Controller configuration
You can save the current configuration of the Fiery Controller and restore it later, if necessary.
To save and restore settings, use Configure. For information, see Configure Help.
The following settings are saved (if your Fiery Controller supports them):
• Settings made in Setup (except Server Name)
• Impose templates saved in the default directory for these files on the Fiery Controller
• Address books
• Virtual Printer settings
• Users and Groups information (login names and passwords)
• Custom spot colors
ADMINISTERING THE FIERY CONTROLLER
32
USB printing
Users can save PS, EPS, TIFF, and PDF files to a USB device and print those files on the
Fiery Controller. To print files automatically when you connect the USB drive to the Fiery
Controller, save the files to specific folders or to the root level on the USB drive.
For more information about printing, see Printing from Windows and Printing from Mac OS.
TO SET UP THE USB DEVICE FOR AUTOMATIC PRINTING
1 Configure, at a minimum, the following USB printing options in WebTools Configure >
Network > Port > USB:
• Select Enable USB Port.
• For Default Queue, choose the connection to which the Fiery Controller downloads files
that do not specify a connection.
• Set USB Media Autoprint to Print All.
2 At a computer, create folders at the top level (root level) of the USB device named Print,
Hold, and Direct.
3 Save the files from the computer to the USB drive.
Files copied to the Print, Hold, and Direct folders are downloaded to the corresponding
print connection on the Fiery Controller when you connect the USB device to the Fiery
Controller.
Files copied to the root level of the device (and any folder under the root level that is not
named for a print connection) are downloaded to the queue that you configured for
USB printing.
Prepare the USB device with the correct folder structure and appropriate files before the
device is connected to the Fiery Controller. Because file processing begins as soon as you
connect the device to the Fiery Controller, there is no time to do any file management tasks
such as moving files to a different folder or deleting files.
4 Remove the USB device from the computer and connect it to the USB port on the
Fiery Controller.
For the location of the USB port, see page 18.
Make sure the USB device is properly stopped before you disconnect it from the computer.

Managing e-mail address books
You can manage e-mail/Internet Fax addresses on the Fiery Controller by sending e-mail
messages in a particular format to the Fiery Controller. Management features are overwriting
the address book, adding new addresses, removing addresses, and retrieving current addresses
on the Fiery Controller.
Users use the address books when they send attachment files to a particular e-mail/Internet
Fax address.
N OTE : E-mail messages can be sent only from an administrator account.
The Fiery Controller supports the following address books:
Admin allows members to modify the address book, get the current address book from
the Fiery Controller, cancel a job, or receive the status of a job. However, membership in this
address book does not provide the same privileges as the Administrator password (page 29)
does.
Print includes users who have print access. Only users whose e-mail addresses are in the
Print address book are authorized to submit jobs via e-mail to the Fiery Controller.
Unauthorized users receive an e-mail reply that their job was not accepted by the
Fiery Controller for printing.
User includes users who have scanning access.
Fax is used for Scan to Internet FAX. This address book is used for sending scan files via
Internet FAX to the Fiery Controller. You cannot use addresses in the address book to send an
e-mail to the Fiery Controller.
Corporate is an LDAP address book used for Scan to E-mail. It allows users to send files with
Remote Scan to a list of addresses registered on an LDAP server.
N OTE : Perform LDAP Setup before setting this address book. For more information,
see WebTools Configure Help.
When a print job is submitted via e-mail, the Fiery Controller first checks the Print address
book. If the user’s e-mail address does not match any entry in the Print address book, the job
does not print. Instead, the user receives an e-mail stating that the print job was not accepted.
The default wildcard character “@” is stored in the Print address book. This allows any user
to print to the Fiery Controller until the administrator adds the first entry in the Print address
book.
ADMINISTERING THE FIERY CONTROLLER
34
To manage address books, send an e-mail to the Fiery Controller with commands in the
Subject and Message fields. The Fiery Controller responds by e-mail with information about
each request, as described in the following table.
To add or remove more than one address at a time, list the addresses on separate lines in the
message field of the e-mail.

1 Start your e-mail application.
2 Open a new message window.
3 Type the e-mail address of the Fiery Controller in the To line.
4 Type the command and the address book name in the Subject line.
For example, to retrieve the User address book, type “#GetAddressBook User.”
5 Send the message.
The return message includes the addresses of the specified address book.
6 Copy the addresses to a text file or save the message for your records.
TO RESTORE AN ADDRESS BOOK TO THE FIERY CONTROLLER
1 Start your e-mail application.
2 Open a new message window.
3 Type the e-mail address of the Fiery Controller in the To line.
4 Type the command and the address book name in the Subject line.
For example, to restore the User address book, type “#GetAddressTo User.”
5 Copy the addresses to the body of the e-mail with each address on a separate line.
You can include nicknames. However, when a nickname or address is longer than one line,
edit it to fit on one line.
6 Send the message.
7 In the return e-mail message, confirm that the addresses were restored correctly.
VDP Search Path
In Configure > PDL > VDP, use the following information for setting the file search path
for VDP objects.
Setting common global search paths
A file search path specifies where common VDP resources (for example, PostScript
images and fonts) are stored, either on a network computer or on the Fiery Controller. The
Fiery Controller searches predefined paths until it finds the necessary resources. If the
resource is not found, the job fails. Inform users of the paths that you specify so that their jobs
can access the resources.
ADMINISTERING THE FIERY CONTROLLER
36
The Fiery Controller searches paths for VDP resources in the following order:
1 Path that the user specifies in the job
See “Allowing users to define a search path for a single job” on page 36.
2 Paths that you define in Configure for common global objects
3 Path that the application specifies for VPS or PPML resources when it generates the
data stream
For any of these paths, the Fiery Controller searches the folder and then the subfolders within
that folder. After the Fiery Controller locates the first resource, it attempts to locate the
second resource in the same folder. If the second resource is not found in the same folder, the
Fiery Controller searches according to the original order.
TO SPECIFY A GLOBAL PATH FOR COMMON VDP OBJECTS
1 In Configure, choose PDL > VDP.
For information about accessing Configure, see page 24.
2 Click Add.
3 In the window that appears, type the path name or click Browse to locate the path.
If you type the path name, use the format of a mapped drive (for example, Z:\folder) or a
UNC (for example, \\computer name\folder).
4 If the path is located on a computer that requires authentication, select Remote Server
Authentication and enter the appropriate user name and password.
5 Click OK.
6 To add more paths, click Add and repeat these steps.
7 Click Apply.
Allowing users to define a search path for a single job
A user can enter a single search path when the user sends the job from a Windows printer
driver, or when someone later overrides the job to include a search path. The path must be
fewer than 256 characters and in the format of either a mapped drive (for example, Z:\folder)
or a UNC (for example, \\computer name\folder).
To use a mapped drive, it must be recognized by the Fiery Controller. For example, if the user
specifies a path on the user’s computer (for example, C:\My Documents\VDP), the Fiery
Controller assumes this is the C:\ drive on the Fiery Controller. In another example, if “Z:” is
a network drive that users access on their network, the Fiery Controller does not know the
location to which “Z:” refers. Therefore, you must map a drive so that the Fiery Controller
also recognizes the location where resources are stored.
If you have enabled Remote Desktop in Setup, connect to the Fiery Controller with Remote
Desktop and use the following procedure.
ADMINISTERING THE FIERY CONTROLLER
37
TO MAP A DRIVE TO A LETTER RECOGNIZED BY THE FIERY CONTROLLER
1 From a Windows Explorer window, choose Tools > Map Network Drive.
2 In the Drive menu, choose a letter that is not currently mapped.
3 In the path field, type the UNC of the network computer that contains the shared resources,
or click Browse and locate the computer on the network.
4 Click Finish.
5 If you are prompted to enter a network password, type Administrator in the Connect As field,
type the password in the Password field, and click OK.
6 Inform the user to use the drive letter in the VDP search path when the user sends the job to
the Fiery Controller.
Setting up the printer driver to print directly to the copier
For single-IP configurations, you can print directly to the copier, bypassing the Fiery
Controller. Before you begin this installation, perform the setup of the copier described

Printing the Configuration page
The Configuration page lists the settings in effect for the current Setup. After you have
performed Setup, print a Configuration page to confirm your settings. Post the current
Configuration page near the Fiery Controller for quick reference. Users need the information
on this page, such as the current printer default settings.
TO PRINT THE CONFIGURATION PAGE FROM COMMAND WORKSTATION
1 In Command WorkStation, choose Print Pages from the Server menu.
2 Click Configuration.
3 Click Print.
4 Type or choose the number of copies and click OK.
Maintaining optimal Fiery Controller performance
The Fiery Controller does not require maintenance. Beyond the obvious requirements of
servicing and maintaining the copier and replenishing consumables, you can improve the
overall performance of your system by doing the following:
• Make the best use of your network connections.
Publish only connections that will be used. The Fiery Controller constantly checks all
published connections, even if they are inactive.
Review the published connections by printing a Configuration page. Eliminate the
connections that are not being used. It is easy to re-establish them when needed.
• Leave less urgent jobs to times when there is less network traffic or printing.
You can print recurring print jobs or jobs that are not urgent to the Hold queue.
At low-traffic times, the administrator or a user of the job management tools with Operator
privileges can move (or copy) all the Hold queue jobs to the Print queue for printing.
• Reduce unnecessary network communication.
Large numbers of users running Fiery utilities, especially with frequent updates, may have a
significant effect on Fiery Controller performance.
• Make sure you have adequate disk space on the Fiery Controller.
Periodically review the list of jobs in the Hold queue, and the number of jobs being retained
in the Printed queue.
An administrator can print or delete jobs that are in the Printed queue and Hold queue.
Consider printing or offloading inactive jobs. If disk space on the Fiery Controller is
frequently low, you can disable the Printed queue and choose not to publish the Hold queue
(in Printer Setup).
To move or remove queued jobs, use the job management tools. When you free up disk space
by removing inactive jobs, new jobs are spooled and printed more quickly.
ADMINISTERING THE FIERY CONTROLLER

Shutting down, rebooting, and restarting the Fiery Controller
Generally, you can leave the Fiery Controller and the copier running all the time. This section
describes how to shut down, reboot, and restart the Fiery Controller when necessary.
The following procedures describe using only the power switch at the back of the Fiery
Controller. Do not use the soft power button. For an illustration, see “Back view of the Fiery
Controller” on page 18.
Shutting down the Fiery Controller
When you need to shut down the Fiery Controller, fonts downloaded to the Fiery Controller
are not deleted. Jobs in the Hold and Print queues and jobs that have been processed but not
printed are not deleted and are available for printing when you reboot or restart the Fiery
Controller.
TO SHUT DOWN THE FIERY CONTROLLER
1 Make sure that the Fiery Controller is not receiving, processing, or printing any files.
If the system has just finished processing, wait at least five seconds after the system reaches
Idle before beginning the shutdown procedure.
2 Turn off the power switch at the back of the Fiery Controller.
Rebooting or restarting the Fiery Controller
Restarting the Fiery Controller resets the Fiery Controller system software, but does not
reboot the entire system. Network access to the Fiery Controller is temporarily interrupted
and all currently processing jobs are terminated.
If you use a USB thumb drive, remove it before rebooting. Otherwise, the Fiery Controller
does not reboot.
TO REBOOT OR RESTART THE FIERY CONTROLLER
1 Verify that the Fiery Controller is not receiving, processing, or printing any files.
If necessary, wait until Command WorkStation shows no processing or printing jobs in the
Active Jobs window, or FieryBar shows Idle in both the RIPping and Printing areas.
2 In Command WorkStation, choose Restart Server or Reboot Server from the Server menu.

TROUBLESHOOTING
This chapter provides troubleshooting tips.
Troubleshooting the Fiery Controller
Startup diagnostics are described in the documentation for service technicians. Contact your
authorized service/support center if you see startup error messages on Command WorkStation
or if the Fiery Controller does not reach the Idle state.
Runtime error messages
For error messages related to canceling jobs and printing, including the Disk Full message and
alerts to load media, see Command WorkStation Help.
You can turn on PostScript error reporting as a print option from Mac OS applications.
Printer not found
Most failures to find a printer on the network are due to conflicting or missing name or
address settings for the Fiery Controller. You must enter names in specific places.
The required names are:
• TCP/IP host name (also known as the DNS name), which is defined by your organization.
Enter the host name as the Server Name in Fiery Controller Setup.
• Remote printer (internal machine) name. Use one of the following:
print
hold
direct
N OTE : If you change the DNS name (TCP/IP host name) of the Fiery Controller, you must
reconfigure one of the utilities on each computer.
