Introduction
About this manual
This manual is intended for anyone who is responsible for
integrating the Fiery into a business environment that includes
networked personal computers. After the Fiery and client
workstations are set up, individual users can print to the Fiery as
a high-performance PostScript printer.
This manual describes how to set up network servers and clients
to use the Fiery and how to install user software and set up
printing from Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS computers.
For general information on using your computer, your software, or
your network, see the manuals that accompany those products.
Note: The term “Fiery” is used in this manual to refer to the Fiery
Network Controller for Sharp AR-C360P . The name “Aero” is used
in illustrations to represent the Fiery. The term “Windows” is used
to refer to Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT 4.0,
Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003, wherever
appropriate. “Setup” is used to refer to configuring the Fiery for
proper performance in your network environment, including
settings that affect all jobs. The administrator can perform Setup
from the WebSetup and Command WorkStation.
The Fiery includes support for the Fiery WebTools™ and software
for Command WorkStation, which allow an operator to manage all
jobs sent to the Sharp AR-C360P. Although it may not be the case
at all sites, the documentation for this product assumes the
presence of an operator who controls and manages jobs sent by
users from remote workstations.
Any additional connectivity or administrative features specific to
the printer are described in the Printing Guide or the Readme file.

1-14 Fiery on the network
Chapter 1:
Connecting to
the Network
This chapter summarizes the stages in setting up the Fiery, and
includes diagrams that refer you to other chapters or other
manuals for completing your installation. Check those references
to find the information you need quickly.
Fiery on the network
When the Fiery is connected to a network, it behaves as a
networked PostScript printer. The built-in Ethernet interface on
the printer supports the following network protocols (rules that
enable computers on a network to communicate with each other):
• AppleTalk
• TCP/IP (the lpd, nbt, and http protocols)
TCP/IP stands for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol. The lpd protocol is the standard TCP/IP printing
protocol. The nbt protocol supports Windows (SMB) printing.
The port 9100 is the printer server port number to publish print
connections between the print server and a remote computer.
The http protocol is commonly used for Web pages on the
Internet and on intranets. The http protocol also supports IPP
printing.
• IPX/SPX (Novell)
IPX/SPX stands for Internetwork Packet Exchange/Sequenced
Packet Exchange.
These protocols are supported on Mac OS, Windows, and UNIX
platforms and can run concurrently on the same cable.
Workstations that use other protocols can print through a server
that uses one of the protocols mentioned.
When you add the Fiery to a network, it is assumed that a
network administrator has already installed a network cabling
system and connected workstations and servers.

1-15 Stages of installation on the network
Stages of installation on the network
Installation can be performed by a network or printing
administrator. The stages of a successful installation are:
•
Physically connecting the Fiery to a functioning network
Prepare a network node for the Fiery—obtain cable, route it to the
location where the printer will be installed, and attach the cable to
the network interface. For details, see page 3-58.
•
Configuring the network server
When network servers are required, you need to configure those
servers to provide client access to the Fiery as a PostScript printer.
For information on configuring network servers in Windows and
UNIX network environments, see Chapter 2.
•
Setting up the Fiery
Configure the Fiery for your particular printing and network
environment. First read Chapter 2, and then see subsequent
chapters for details.
•
Preparing client workstations for printing
Install the files needed for printing, install additional user
software, and connect the client to the Fiery over the network.
These steps are described in the User Software Installation Guide,
and some information is also provided in Chapter 2.
•
Administering the Fiery
Monitor and maintain system performance and troubleshoot
problems that arise. For details, see Chapter 7 of this manual and
the Job Management Guide.

Quick path to installation
The diagrams on the following pages show typical systems you
can use to print and run Fiery software from remote workstations.
Find the page with your preferred platform and network type, and
then look up the setup procedures referenced in the “Key to
setup” in the upper-left corner of each diagram.
The diagrams describe devices that use the supported networking
protocols. They are logical diagrams and are not intended to
describe the physical arrangement (topology) of devices on the
network. A variety of physical arrangements is possible with each
logical arrangement. For example, twisted pair Ethernet networks
commonly use a star configuration around a hub, rather than a
bus arrangement. The design of physical networks is beyond the
scope of this manual.
If your network uses more than one protocol or more than one
type of workstation, combine the setups listed for each
component of your system. Multiple protocols (shown in the
diagrams as parallel lines) can run on the same cable. A solid
connection from the Fiery with an arrow indicates that other
supported network types can be operational at the same time.

You must use a Category 5 unshielded twisted pair cable network
cable for 100BaseT.
Parallel cable connection
The Fiery can accept print jobs from a Windows computer through
its high-speed parallel port. This connection is advantageous for
portable computers and for workstations on dedicated networks
using protocols other than AppleTalk, TCP/IP, or IPX.
The parallel port connection can be active at the same time as the
network ports.
Note: The parallel port cannot be used to connect the Fiery with
Command WorkStation or other Fiery utilities.
To use parallel or USB cable
1. With the Sharp AR-C360P and the Windows computer turned off,
attach the parallel or USB cable to the parallel or USB port of the
printer.
For the location of the parallel and USB ports, see the illustration
on page 1-24.
2. Connect the other end of the cable to the parallel or USB port on

2-26 Fiery on a TCP/IP network with Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Serv-
Chapter 2:
Setting up
Network
Servers
This chapter describes environments that typically include one or
more network servers—Novell NetWare servers and
Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 servers—that share printing
to the Fiery. It describes setting up servers that use IPX/SPX or
TCP/IP protocols for communicating with the Fiery. In addition, it
includes guidelines for setting up direct communication from
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003 workstations or UNIX
workstations, where a network server is optional. This chapter
also outlines the requirements for users to print to the Fiery and
run Fiery utilities and Fiery WebTools.
The Fiery can accept jobs concurrently from NetWare,
Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003, and AppleShare servers, as
well as jobs sent directly from Windows or UNIX workstations.
Because AppleShare servers require no special configuration, they
are not discussed in this chapter, except for use in a
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003 environment (see “Fiery
on a TCP/IP network with Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003/
Server 2003” in the following section).
If your network is based on Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003,
proceed to the following section. For information on UNIX
workstations, proceed to page 2-44.
Fiery on a TCP/IP network with
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003/Server

When a Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003 computer is
configured to connect to the Fiery using TCP/IP, it can print
directly to the Fiery. If the computer shares the printer over the
network, it is acting as a print server to Windows clients. Client
computers print to the Fiery by printing to the Windows NT 4.0/
2000/Server 2003 print server. You can then monitor and control
printing at the Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server
computer.

• Print server running Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003
Workstation and clients running Windows 98/Me
With TCP/IP protocols loaded, you can run Fiery utilities and Fiery
WebTools from a Windows computer.
Tips for experts—Windows with TCP/IP
Setting up printing from Windows using TCP/IP protocols is similar
to setting up UNIX workstations with TCP/IP. When TCP/IP
network connections are made from Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/
Server 2003 workstations, note the following:
•
Make sure you have a valid IP address for the Fiery and any
workstations that will print to it or run the Fiery utilities.
•
In Fiery Setup, enable TCP/IP and enter the IP address, subnet
mask, and gateway address for the Fiery.
Enter these addresses manually or use DHCP or BOOTP protocols
to assign them dynamically.
•
Make sure the Fiery name and address are listed in a domain
name server (DNS) or host name database used by your system.
•
Make sure the system host table includes the correct internal
name for the Fiery as a remote printer.
For more information, see page 2-45.
•
For Windows, install the appropriate printer driver files on the
Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server.
For more information, see the User Software Installation Guide.
•
Repeat the installation for all users who print to the Fiery.
Each server and workstation running the Fiery utilities with TCP/IP
also needs the TCP/IP protocol and the Fiery utility software.

Configuring a Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server
2003 server to
communicate with the Fiery
To configure a Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server to
communicate with the Fiery, follow these general steps. More
detail is provided in subsequent sections in this chapter and in
your Microsoft documentation.
•
Load the TCP/IP network protocol on the server and configure it
with an IP address, subnet mask, and gateway.
•
Enter the host name of the Fiery in the host name database used
by your system (see page 2-29).
•
Perform Fiery Setup.
•
On the Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server, create a
printer for each Fiery print connection, install the appropriate
printer drivers, and (optionally) share the printer on the network
(see page 2-30).
•
Enter the host name and remote printer name of the Fiery in the
printer connection. For more information, see page 2-45.
•
If the Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server is also a
workstation, install Fiery utilities (see the User Software
Installation Guide).

2-29 Fiery on a TCP/IP network with Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Serv-
Adding the Fiery to the TCP/IP network
If your TCP/IP network consists of Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server
2003 servers and Windows clients, follow the procedures in this
section. If the network includes UNIX workstations, also see the
procedures on page 2-46.
To add the Fiery to a TCP/IP network with a
Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server
1. Register the IP address of the Fiery in the host name database
used by your system.
For installations that do not have a network administrator or
central host name database, add the Fiery to the hosts file on the
Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server. Also add it to the hosts
file on any workstations that have TCP/IP loaded and will use the
Fiery utilities.
The Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 hosts file provides
compatibility with the UNIX hosts file. The hosts file is used as a
local Domain Name Services (DNS) equivalent. It has the same
format as the /etc/hosts file on UNIX servers. The format of the
hosts entry is:
IP Address<TAB>host name<TAB>#comments
where <TAB> indicates that you press the Tab key.
To determine the IP address and server name of your system,
print a Configuration page (see page 7-155).
Note: If the Fiery has already been defined in an /etc/hosts file or
equivalent host name database on a UNIX workstation on your
network, we recommend you use the same host name here as
you used for the name of the remote printer in the /etc/printcap
file.
2. Perform Fiery Setup to support TCP/IP printing.
Enter the options in Protocol Setup (IP address of the Fiery,
subnet mask, and gateway address).
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 29

2-30 Setting up Network Servers
Installing the Fiery as a shared printer
The first step in creating a printer is installing the printer driver
files, which give your applications access to printer features. You
can use the installation instructions in the User Software
Installation Guide for every workstation that will print directly and
independently to the Fiery. However, if you are an administrator
running a Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server or
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003 workstation, you can also
create a printer and share it with clients on the network. This
allows clients who do not have permission to establish an
independent network connection to the Fiery to print through the
server.
You can specify sharing of the printer during installation of the
Fiery printer files. If you have not yet installed the Fiery printer
files on the Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 print server
computer, do so now, following the instructions in Chapter 1 of the
User Software Installation Guide. During installation, enter the
information necessary to share the Fiery.
If you have already installed the Fiery printer files on the
computer you are using as a Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003
print server, see your Windows documentation for information
about sharing the Fiery.
If more than one Fiery print connection is published (for example,
if both the Print queue and the Hold queue are published), you
may want to create a printer for each print connection, so that
you and other users can print to each connection directly. When
prompted to specify the printer name, enter a name that indicates
the Fiery print connection.
2003 server
Configuring clients of a Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server
Each client of a Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server is
already using a network protocol to communicate with the server.
Each client can print to the Fiery if it has been shared by a

Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server, or Windows NT 4.0/
2000/XP/Server 2003 computer. In that case, the client does not
have to use the same network protocol to connect to the
Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server as the server uses to
communicate with the Fiery.
To connect and print to the Fiery shared
by a Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server
•
Windows 98/Me: Before printing, double-click the
Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server icon in the Network
Neighborhood window, and then double-click the printer name.
You are prompted to set up the printer. When you choose to set it
up, the Add Printer Wizard dialog box appears. Follow the
procedures in Chapter 1 of the User Software Installation Guide.
•
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP: Before printing, connect to the print
server computer and select the Fiery. Right-click and choose the
Open command.
When prompted, click Yes to have Windows set up the printer.
After clients have selected the printer, they can choose it from the
Print Setup, Page Setup, or Print dialog box of their application.
Clients can change printing options for their own job, but printer
properties appear dimmed, and are unavailable for changing.
When a client chooses Print, the job is transmitted to the
Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 print server, and from there to
the selected print connection on the Fiery. The job is listed in the
Print Manager on the client workstation, and the administrator can
track it in the Fiery window in the Print Manager on the
Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 print server.

2-32 Setting up Network Servers
2003 server, Windows workstations can still print to the Fiery. This
method of printing is called Windows, or SMB printing. In this type
of network environment, computers running Windows 98/Me and
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003 workstations operate in a
peer-to-peer environment and communicate directly with the
Fiery when users send print jobs.
Many of the same prerequisites for setting up printing through a
Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server also apply to setting up
Windows printing where a server is not present. The prerequisites
are summarized in the following list, and you can find more detail
in your Microsoft documentation.
•
Print a Configuration page (see page 5-143).
Use the information on this page to determine the current Fiery
settings.
•
Load the TCP/IP network protocol on the computer.
Windows 98/Me: Load File and printer sharing for Microsoft
Networks.
Windows 2000/XP: Load Client for Microsoft Networks.
•
In the Windows Network Control Panel, verify the Workgroup
name of the computer. Make sure that the Workgroup name is the
same as the one listed in Fiery Setup.
•
Windows 98/Me: In the File and printer sharing for Microsoft
Network Properties dialog box, specify Automatic or Enabled for
Browse Master, and select Yes for LM Announce.
•
Windows 2000/XP: In the Client for Microsoft Networks
Properties dialog box, configure the computer to allow file
sharing, and then restart the computer.
•
Ping the Fiery to verify TCP/IP communication is successful (see

2-34 Setting up Network Servers
Fiery on a NetWare network
The NetWise™ features built into the Fiery support the following
network operating environments:
• NetWare—NDS (Novell Directory Services)
• Servers running NetWare in bindery emulation mode
The term “Netware” is used to refer to Netware 4.x, 5.x, and 6.x.
Note: Setting up a NetWare environment correctly requires the
presence and active cooperation of the Novell network
administrator. You must have administrator privileges on the
network to create new NDS or bindery objects.
Note: The iPrint feature available with NetWare 6.x is not
supported.
The term “bindery server” is used to refer to a Novell file server
running NetWare in emulation mode. The term “NDS” is used to
describe components of a NetWare operating system running
NetWare in native mode.
NetWare clients print to the Fiery through the Novell network
server. Server setup and client network setup are outlined in this
chapter, client printing setup is described in the User Software
Installation Guide, and printing is described in the Printing Guide.
The Fiery can receive print jobs from NetWare clients over
Ethernet network topologies. During Fiery Setup, you select the
frame type or types that will be used for communication between
the Fiery and network servers. Frame type refers to the format of
a communications packet; frame types are specified in a startup
file when the NetWare server (or any other workstation) loads its
network drivers.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 34

2-35 Fiery on a NetWare network
Tips for experts—IPX networks
Setting up the Fiery is similar to setting up any other PostScript
printer on the network.
The Fiery with IPX connections has the following characteristics:
•
A minimum connection to the Fiery consists of a NetWare file
server, a NetWare print server, and a NetWare queue.
•
A single directory tree and up to eight bindery servers can be
configured simultaneously.
•
The Fiery looks for print jobs on one NetWare print server per
bindery server.
•
Each print server can store jobs for any print connection on the
Fiery.
Overview of IPX printing to the Fiery
NetWare file servers support the creation of print queues, which
are storage areas for print jobs. When a client on a remote
computer decides to print, the job is directed to a print queue on
the NetWare file server and spooled to the NetWare server disk,
freeing up the client workstation.
You must give the NetWare queue names a specific extension
corresponding to the Fiery print connection, as follows:
_print
_hold
_direct
Note: These extension names must be in English and in all
lowercase letters.
You do not need to rerun Setup when you add or remove a
NetWare queue; however, you should restart the Fiery after you
create or remove a queue.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 35
2
2-36 Setting up Network Servers
When the Fiery is configured to connect to a NetWare server, it
polls the NetWare server for jobs in each of its queues. If jobs are
found, they are automatically transferred over the network to the
matching connection on the Fiery. For example, jobs from the
NetWare queue with the _print extension are sent to the Fiery
Print queue. While a job is processed and printed, a record of the
job is being created. You can access the Job Log containing these
records at any time.
Configuring a NetWare server for printing
The following sections explain how to set up a NetWare file server
so networked users can print to the Fiery from their workstations,
and the Fiery can obtain print jobs from the NetWare server.
For each NetWare file server that you configure, follow these
general steps. More detail is provided in subsequent sections and
in your NetWare documentation.
• Make sure the server is connected to a functioning IPX network.
• Log in as the Supervisor on a PC connected to the NetWare file
server.
• For NetWare installations, set up an NDS connection (see
page 2-38).
• For NetWare in emulation mode, set the bindery context (see
page 2-38).
• For NetWare in bindery emulation, set up a file server, print
server, and print queue for the Fiery (see page 2-39).
With bindery services, you can route all Fiery print jobs through
the same NetWare file server, or you can configure more than one
file server to handle Fiery jobs.

Setting up an NDS connection
In NDS, all NetWare entities (objects) are organized in a
hierarchical tree structure. Objects have a name, properties, and
a context that defines the location of the object in the directory
tree. For the Fiery, you are mainly concerned with defining a
printer, a print server object, and one or more print queue
objects. Objects are created in NetWare administrator programs
such as PCONSOLE, NETADMIN, or NetWare Administrator.
The top-level tree object is known as the [Root] object. The name
of the [Root] object is also the name of the tree. Below the [Root]
are other objects: either containers (which consist of other
objects) or leaf objects (which do not contain other objects).
Access to objects is controlled by rights that are defined as
properties of each object. Rights are established by network
administrators.
Setting the NetWare bindery context
You can connect only one directory tree to the Fiery. If you need
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 38
2
2-39 Fiery on a NetWare network
to connect additional NetWare servers, you can do so by using
bindery emulation. You can connect up to eight bindery servers to
the Fiery.
Note: The file server you select must not be in the same tree as
the one you selected in NDS Setup.
In order to set up the NetWare server in bindery emulation mode
for printing to the Fiery, the network administrator must do the
following:
• Determine the Directory Services path to the container in which
the print server and the print queue for the Fiery will be created.
The container defines the “bindery context” for your network
structure.
• Edit the network startup file to set the bindery context.
• Activate the new bindery context.
Setting up a NetWare print queue for bindery
For NetWare in emulation mode, the NetWare print server and
print queue for the Fiery are created and configured from NetWare
Print Console (PCONSOLE), a NetWare utility that is stored in the
NetWare PUBLIC directory.
As with NDS, you can create several NetWare entities on a Novell
server, and you can then select them in Network Setup.
Setting up NetWare Windows clients for printing
Before setting up client workstations for printing, perform
Network Setup (see page 4-66), and verify that the settings
reflect the entities you created in the NetWare administrator
utilities (see page 2-36).
Note: For printing to the Fiery, connect all Windows clients to a
NetWare server and permit them to connect to the Netware print
server or servers on which you defined a NetWare print queue for
the Fiery.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 39
2
2-40 Setting up Network Servers
After the Novell server and the Fiery have been set up, client
setup consists of:
• Installing the networking protocol, binding it to the network
adapter card, and permitting the client to log in to the NetWare
file server.
On Windows 98/Me workstations, load both the IPX/SPXcompatible protocol and the Client for NetWare Networks from
the Network Control Panel.
On Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003 workstations, install
Client Services for NetWare. Use the CSNW option in the Control
Panel to set printing options and specify a preferred NetWare
server.
• Setting up the Fiery as a PostScript printer by installing a
PostScript printer driver and the Fiery PPD (PostScript printer
description).
• Adding a network port and connecting the workstation to one or
more NetWare queues that have been defined for the Fiery.
• Installing Fiery software, such as color reference files.
For details, see the User Software Installation Guide.
Fiery on a NetWare network with NDPS
The Fiery supports printing over a NetWare 5.x or later network
running either the TCP/IP protocols or the IPX protocol. For pure
IP printing, the Fiery takes advantage of features in NDPS (Novell
Distributed Print Services). For IPX printing, the Fiery supports
the PServer service in Bindery emulation or through NDS (Novell
Directory Services). For more information on IPX-based printing,
see “Fiery on a NetWare network” on page 2-34.
Note: Setting up a NetWare environment correctly requires the
presence and active cooperation of the Novell network
administrator. You must have administrator privileges on the
network to create new NDS or bindery objects.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 40
2
2-41 Fiery on a NetWare network with NDPS
NDPS is not like earlier queue-based versions of NetWare printing.
Instead, you use an NDPS Manager and a Printer Agent, which
control the tasks previously handled by a print queue, print
server, and spooler. You can also make the printer driver available
for clients to download from Windows 98/Me and
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003 computers.
During Fiery Setup, you select the frame type or types that will be
used for communication between the Fiery and network servers.
Frame type refers to the format of a communications packet;
frame types are specified in a startup file when the NetWare
server (or any other workstation) loads its network drivers.
Tips for experts—NetWare networks
Setting up the Fiery in an NDPS environment is similar to setting
up any other PostScript printer on the network. When setting up
the Fiery in such an environment, refer to the following
information:
•
Make sure you have a valid IP address for the Fiery and for any
workstations that will print to it or run Fiery utilities.
•
In Fiery Setup, enable TCP/IP and enter the IP address, subnet
mask, and gateway address for the Fiery. You can enter these
manually or use DHCP or BOOTP protocols to assign the
addresses dynamically.
•
Bidirectional communication features in NDPS are not supported
on the Fiery.
Configuring a NetWare server for printing with
NDPS
Before you begin
The following procedure assumes NDPS has been installed during
NetWare 5.x or later installation and that a Broker is running on
the server. Unless you have manually unloaded the Broker, it loads
and runs when you install NDPS. Make sure you are using the
latest NetWare service pack and Novell gateway. Finally, create an
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 41
2
2-42 Setting up Network Servers
NDPS Manager. For more information, see your NetWare
documentation.
In Fiery Setup, make sure you have enabled TCP/IP and LPD
printing on the Fiery. You can ping the Fiery to verify that TCP/IP
communication is successful.
Setting up the Fiery printer driver
You first need to create a directory for Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/
Server 2003 or a folder for Windows 98/Me in the NetWare server
for NDPS to install the corresponding printer driver files from the
User Software CD.
To set up the printer driver for Windows NT 4.0/
2000/Server 2003
1. Log on to the Novell file server as a superuser or Administrator.
2. Create a directory called Fiery in the following location:
SYS:ndps\resdir\Prndrv\NT4 for Windows NT 4.0
SYS:ndps\resdir\Prndrv\2000 for Windows 2000
SYS:ndps\resdir\Prndrv\XP for Windows XP
SYS:ndps\resdir\Prndrv\Server 2003 for Windows Server 2003
3. From the Driver CD, copy the contents of the following folder to
the Fiery directory:
DRIVERS\ENGLISH\NT4\PS for Windows NT 4.0
DRIVERS\ENGLISH\WIN2K_XP\PS for Windows 2000
DRIVERS\ENGLISH\WIN2K_XP\PS for Windows XP and Windows
Server 2003
To set up the printer driver for Windows 98/Me
1. Log on to the Novell file server as a superuser or Administrator.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 42

2-43 Fiery on a NetWare network with NDPS
2. In the SYS:ndps\resdir\Prndrv\Win98/Me directory, create a
directory called Fiery.
3. From the User Software CD, copy the contents of the
ENGLISH\WIN_98/ps/folder to the Fiery directory.
Setting up the Fiery on a NetWare network
Depending on the security needs at your organization, you can set
up the Fiery as a Public Access printer or a Controlled Access
printer. The following procedure describes setting up a Public
Access printer. You can then convert the printer to Controlled
Access if necessary. For more information, see your NetWare
documentation.
To set up the Fiery as a Public Access printer
1. In NetWare Administrator, double-click the NDPS Manager object
you created.
2. In the Details window for the NDPS Manager object, click Printer
Agent List.
The list of Printer Agents appears.
3. Click New.
4. In the Printer Agent (PA) Name field, enter a name.

9. For Printer Name, enter the name of the Fiery print connection
you want users to print to, and click Finish.
This name must be either print or hold.
10. In the Select Printer Drivers dialog box, select the printer driver
for Windows 98/Me and the driver for Windows NT 4.0/2000/
XP/Server 2003.
11. Click Continue, and then click OK.
Fiery on a network with UNIX workstations
When a UNIX workstation is configured with the lpd protocol and
connected to the Fiery over a TCP/IP network, it can print directly
to the Fiery.
Setting up UNIX workstations requires an administrator with root
privileges. After the initial configuration, UNIX users simply
submit print jobs to a named printer.
The job management tools, along with the other Fiery utilities and
WebTools, are unavailable on the UNIX platform. A Windows or
Mac OS computer on the same network as the UNIX computer
that is set up to use TCP/IP for printing to the Fiery can use the
job management tools to manage print jobs that originate from all
workstations on the network.
Tips for experts—UNIX workstations
Setting up the Fiery in a UNIX environment has the same
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 44
2
2-45 Fiery on a network with UNIX workstations
requirements as setting up any printer or new device:
•
A distinct IP address is required for the Fiery as well as for each
workstation on the network.
•
A name must be selected for the Fiery that goes with the IP
address.
•
The IP address of the Fiery must be registered for the network in
a host name database, and also on the Fiery itself.
•
At least one print connection (Print or Hold) must be published.
The following information applies especially to the Fiery:
•
The Fiery contains a printer controller that understands lpd
protocols.
•
The Fiery has a remote printer name you must use in order to
communicate with it successfully.
For details, see the following section.
Important note about the remote printer name
Whichever UNIX system you use, the name used for the remote
printer (or rp in the /etc/printcap file) in configuring the Fiery must
be one of the following:
print
hold
The remote printer name is also used when setting up a
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003 workstation or
Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server to connect to the Fiery
over TCP/IP. Enter the remote printer name when you set up your
Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 printer, as the “Name of
printer or print queue on that (lpd host) server” in the Add LPR
Compatible Printer dialog box.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 45
2
2-46 Setting up Network Servers
For the Windows 2000/XP printer driver, enter the remote printer
name for Queue Name under LPR Settings in the Configure
Standard TCP/IP Port Monitor dialog box.
Setting up the Fiery on TCP/IP networks
Every machine (host) on a TCP/IP network, including the Fiery,
must have a unique 32-bit internet address (IP address). Contact
your network administrator to obtain an address for the Fiery.
Workstations on a TCP/IP network can print directly to the Fiery as
a remote printer, or can print to a Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server
2003 server or UNIX workstation acting as a print server. Since
the Fiery spools jobs and acts as a print server, there is no
advantage in placing another print server between a workstation
and the Fiery. If you choose to do so, however, there is no
difference in setup except that a client machine does not have its
own spooling area.
To set up Fiery printing on UNIX systems
1. Specify the appropriate settings in Fiery Network Setup.
Enter a valid IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address for
the Fiery.
2. Specify the appropriate settings in Fiery Printer Setup.
Publish the Print queue, Hold queue, and/or Direct queue.
To set up TCP/IP for communication with the
Fiery
1. A superuser (with root login) must add the Fiery to the network’s
IP host table or other system database of network printers.
2. In the file or utility used by your network, specify the remote
printer name, the print server protocol, the queue, and the spool
file for the Fiery name you assigned.
3. Make the Fiery available as a printer to other network users.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 46
2
2-47 Fiery on a network with UNIX workstations
4. To verify the TCP/IP connection, ping the IP address or the host
name. From any Windows computer on the network, at the MSDOS command prompt, type:
ping <IP address>
Type the Fiery IP address assigned in Fiery Network Setup.
After the Fiery is set up as a network printer, you can also ping the
name you gave to the Fiery:
ping <hostname>
The server should respond with a message such as
Reply from <IP address> ...
Some systems will respond with a continuous display of output
from the IP address. To stop the output, type Control-C. You can
use the ping command at any time.
To print to the Fiery
•
On a UNIX system running SunOS 4.x or other BSD-based variant,
use the lpr command to send a job to the Fiery.
•
On a UNIX system running Solaris 2.x or any System V
implementation of UNIX, use the lp command to send a job to the
Fiery.
•
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003 users with the TCP/IP
protocol loaded can send print jobs to the Fiery from their
applications or from a command prompt.
When Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003 users print from
applications, they can set print options with the driver but not
from the UNIX command line.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 47

2-48 Setting up Network Servers
Managing print jobs
UNIX network administrators can use UNIX utilities for viewing the
list of jobs, and for printing and removing jobs that are spooled on
UNIX servers. If the network includes a Windows NT 4.0/2000/
XP/Server 2003 workstation that has TCP/IP protocols loaded, you
can use Command WorkStation or Fiery Downloader not only to
view the list of jobs and to print and remove jobs but also to
download fonts and files directly to the Fiery. For more
information on these job management tools, see the Job
Management Guide.
Even without the Fiery utilities, you can do the following:
• Set up the Fiery to print a log of printed jobs automatically after
every 55 jobs.
• Print a Job Log manually at any time from the
Command WorkStation Functions menu (see the Job
Management Guide).
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 48

3-49 Levels of access and control
Chapter 3:
Preparing for
Fiery Setup
‘To prepare for printing at your site, you must do some initial Fiery
configuration, or Setup, to specify the network environment and
the kind of printing you will do. Before you perform Setup, you
must decide the levels of access you will implement for your site.
Administrators and operators must also understand how Fiery
system software is structured in order to configure and use the
Fiery system correctly.
Levels of access and control
When you configure the Fiery during Setup, you (as system
administrator) implement a particular level of control by enabling
or not enabling print connections, passwords, and access to
WebTools. The level of control you implement can range from
minimum to moderate to maximum—or none at all.
• Minimum control might be appropriate for a small site where
anyone on the local network can control all printing and Fiery
functions. Although there may be an administrator or operator
charged with certain duties, all users have equal access to the
system and job management tools.
• Maximum control might be appropriate for a high-volume
printing environment where an administrator or operator
controls the job flow and all printing; jobs sent by users are
spooled (stored) to the Fiery hard disk until the operator decides
it is time to print them. In addition, only the administrator and
operator have access to job management tools. This is the
recommended level of control.
Note: The term “job management tools” is used in this manual to
refer to Command WorkStation and Command WorkStation LE.
Fiery print connections
The Fiery supports three print connections: Hold queue, Print
queue, and Direct connection. These print connections can be
enabled, or “published,” to users on the network when you
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 49
3
3-50 Preparing for Fiery Setup
configure Printer Setup. All published connections are constantly
checked for the presence of jobs. The Print queue and Direct
connection give remote users more direct access to the Fiery than
the Hold queue. Therefore, do not publish the Print queue and the
Direct connection in environments where maximum control is
desired.
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 makes it convenient to reprint those jobs. In Setup, you
can enable the Printed queue and specify the maximum number of
jobs retained in the queue (see page 4-66). Reprinting jobs in the
Printed queue requires the job management tools.
Note: To use the Fiery utilities and Fiery WebTools, you must
enable at least one of the print connections.
Hold queue
Jobs sent to the Hold queue are spooled to the Fiery hard disk for
printing at a later time or for reprinting. Because the Hold queue
is a storage place, jobs sent to it cannot proceed through the
printing process until the operator intervenes using the job
management tools (see the Job Management Guide).
Print queue
This is the standard Fiery queue. Jobs sent to the Print queue are
processed and printed in the order they are received. Jobs
prioritized by an operator with the job management tools and jobs
sent via the Direct connection can take priority over jobs sent to
the Print queue.
Direct connection
The Direct connection transmits jobs directly to the Fiery, but only
when the Fiery is Idle. If the Fiery is busy, the job remains at the
user workstation until the Fiery is ready. The job is then processed
as soon as the previous job is finished and before the next queued
job is processed.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 50
3
3-51 Levels of access and control
Note: The Direct connection is not supported for LPR printing.
Jobs sent to the Direct connection are not stored on the Fiery 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.
Note: To download fonts to the Fiery, you must publish the Direct
connection.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 51
3
3-52 Preparing for Fiery Setup
Passwords
You can implement passwords as a means of controlling access to
Fiery functions. The Fiery allows you to set the following
passwords in Setup:
• Administrator—remotely from Command WorkStation, or locally
from the Control Panel
• Operator—from Command WorkStation or Fiery WebSetup
Note: By default, no passwords are set on the Fiery. If you do not
specifically set passwords, all users will have administrator
privileges, which include access to important functions such as
Setup (including setting passwords), and job control. We strongly
recommend that you set at least an Administrator password to
protect the Fiery from random or accidental changes to Setup.
Administrator privileges
Administrator control, which confers control of Setup, is the
highest level of control, since the person who has access to Setup
can control the printing and job management environment.
Administrator privileges include publishing print connections,
setting passwords, deleting fonts, controlling print jobs from the
job management tools, overriding job settings, clearing the Fiery
of all job data, performing calibration, defining default color
profiles, and setting default values for print options.
Operator privileges
Operator control includes control of print jobs from the job
management tools, including the ability to override job settings.
Guest privileges (no password)
No password is needed for a user to log in 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 state.
WebTools
The Fiery supports Internet or intranet access with WebTools from
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 52
3
3-53 Levels of access and control
Windows and Mac OS computers. To enable the use of WebTools,
you must do the following in Setup:
• Enable TCP/IP.
• Set an IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address for the
Fiery.
• Enable Web Services.
For more information, see Chapter 6.
You can set passwords to control access to WebTools features. If
you do not specifically set these passwords, all users have access
to all WebTools functions (see page 3-52). WebTools include
Status, WebLink, WebScan, WebDownloader, and WebSetup.
Status
The Status WebTool provides you with current information on the
jobs processing and printing on the Fiery. It is not affected by
passwords. For more information, see Chapter 8 of the
Printing Guide.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 53
3
3-54 Preparing for Fiery Setup
WebLink
WebLink provides all users with a link to an address on the
Internet. To change the WebLink Internet address, see
page 6-145. This function requires the Administrator password, if
one has been set (see “Passwords” on page 3-52).
Note: If you do not set the Administrator password, any user can
change the WebLink address, which affects all users. For this
reason, we strongly recommend that you set an Administrator
password.
WebScan
With WebScan, you can retrieve scanned documents from a
computer on the Internet or your organization’s intranet. It is not
affected by passwords. For more information, see Chapter 6 of the
Printing Guide.
WebDownloader
WebDownloader allows you to print PostScript, EPS, PDF, and TIFF
files directly to the Fiery without first opening the file in an
application. It is not affected by passwords.
WebSetup
WebSetup allows you to view and modify Fiery Setup options from
a remote workstation. This function requires an Administrator
password. For more information, see Chapter 5.
Note: WebSetup is supported on Windows computers only.

3-55 Levels of access and control
Control level scenarios
Typical scenarios of access and control, ranging from minimum
control to maximum control, are described in this section. Choose
the scenario that best matches your site requirements, and refer
to the corresponding number in the following table for guidance
on how to configure your system for those requirements.
Note: We strongly recommend that you set at least an
Administrator password to prevent unauthorized changes to
system settings.
1. No designated administrator or operator (Minimum control—not
recommended)
All users have equal access to all system functions including
Setup, clearing the Fiery, deleting printer fonts, setting the
WebLink address, performing calibration, printing to all Fiery print
connections, and managing all jobs from the job management
tools.
2. An administrator but no operator
Only an administrator can perform Setup, calibration, and other
administrator functions, but all other system functions are
accessible to all users, including printing to all Fiery print
connections, and managing all jobs from the job
management tools.
3. An administrator and an operator
Only an administrator can perform Setup, calibration, and other
administrator functions, and only an operator or administrator can
control jobs from the job management tools. Users can print to all
published Fiery print connections.
4. An administrator and an operator; no WebTool access
Only an administrator can perform Setup, calibration, and other
administrator functions, and only an operator or administrator can
control jobs from the job management tools. Users can print to
the Hold queue and Print queue, but not to the Direct connection.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 55

3-57 About Setup
About Setup
Setup configures the Fiery to communicate with other devices and
manage print jobs. You must perform Setup the first time you turn
on the Fiery, or if the internal hard disk drive has just been
replaced. An initial Setup using default settings is adequate for
allowing users to print to the Fiery and use the WebTools. When
your network or user printing environment changes, you can
change Setup options accordingly.
The first time you perform Setup, you must use the printer’s
Control Panel. Configure, at a minimum, Server Setup, Network
Setup, and Printer Setup, in that sequence. After the initial Setup,
you can change Setup options from the printer’s Control Panel
(page 4-61) or Command WorkStation. Most Setup options can be
set using any of these methods.
If you do not configure the remaining Setups, the Fiery uses
default settings. You need to make settings appropriate for the
printing environment at your site.
Network server setup requirements
For Novell and Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 (using TCP/IP)
networks, you must configure the network servers for printing to
the Fiery before you configure Fiery network settings in Setup. For
chapter references to information about network server Setup,
see the diagrams in Chapter 1.
To configure network settings in Setup, you must have a live
network connection, so the Fiery can query the network for zones,
servers, and server-based queues.
Whenever the configuration of the Fiery, the printer, or the
network itself changes at your site, you can alter individual
settings to correspond to the changed environment. Changing
network or port settings may require that you also make changes
to other Setup options.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 57
3
3-58 Preparing for Fiery Setup
Note: You must configure the Fiery with the correct
Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 domain name. This is
especially important for Windows printing, also known as
SMB printing.
Note: The Fiery does not support the Windows 2000/Server 2003
Active Directory Service. When you use the Fiery in a Windows
2000/Server 2003 server environment, assign the Fiery to a
Domain or Workgroup.
Ensuring the printer connection
Complete the following steps before you configure the Fiery and
the workstations that will print to the Fiery. A service technician
will have performed some initial installation.
To prepare for Fiery configuration
1. Print a printer Test Page to verify the printer is functioning
normally.
2. With the the printer turned off, connect the network cable to the
the printer, as described in Chapter 1.
The network should already be installed and operational.

Because you can set up more than one Novell server to handle Fiery print
jobs, an additional menu is displayed for this purpose. The options are:
• Add File Server—creates a new file server connection to the
Fiery. You can set up a maximum of eight file server
connections. After you have finished adding a new server, you
return to the Bindery Setup menu, where you can set up
another server.
• View Server List—displays the list of file servers that have
already been selected to communicate with the Fiery.
• Edit Connection—lets you change the NetWare Print Server
that will print to the Fiery.
• Remove File Server—lets you disconnect the Fiery from a file
server to which it is currently connected. Remove a file server
when you want to reduce the number of connections to the
Fiery or reassign the connection to a different NetWare
file server.
• Exit Bindery Setup—lets you exit this menu after you have

SWOP-Coated (EFI)/DIC (EFI)/Euroscale (EFI)/None
[SWOP-Coated (EFI) in North America, Euroscale (EFI) elsewhere]
CMYK simulation allows color correction to simulate printed output
on a commercial press, so that the Fiery output can be used for
proofing. The SWOP-Coated standard is used in the United States,
DIC in Japan, and Euroscale in Europe. Custom simulations are
user defined and named. The simulations provided with the Fiery
have the designation “EFI” after their names.
If users create and load custom simulations on the Fiery with ColorWise Pro Tools, these also appear in the list of simulations. A
custom simulation can be selected as the default simulation. For
more information about custom simulations, see the Color Guide.
CMYK Simulation Method
Quick/Full (Source GCR)/Full (Output GCR) [Full (Output GCR)]
Quick simulation assumes that the printer toners match the
printer’s inks, and all changes affect only one color (C, M, Y, or K)
at a time. Full (Source GCR) simulation allows for more flexibility
in matching toner to ink and all changes interact to maintain a
better color balance. Full (Output GCR) offers accurate proofing by
providing a colorimetric conversion of all four plates. In this simulation method, the black (K) plate is mixed into the CMY plates,
then reseparated based on the Output profile.

Managing address books
Managing address books
The E-mail Service feature allows an administrator to import a list
of e-mail addresses to the Fiery by sending e-mail messages to
the Fiery.
Note: E-mail messages can be sent only from an administrator
account.
The Fiery supports the following address books:
• Admin—includes users with administrative access.
Administrative access allows you to modify the address book,
get the current address book from the Fiery, and cancel or
status any print job.
• 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. Unauthorized users receive
an e-mail reply that their job was not accepted by the Fiery for
printing.
E-mail Service also allows the administrator to overwrite the
address book, append new addresses, remove addresses, and
retrieve current addresses on the Fiery.
When a print job is submitted via e-mail, the Fiery checks the
Print address book. If the user’s e-mail address does not match
any entry in the Print address book, the job will 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 until the
administrator adds the first entry in the Print address book.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 153
7
7-154
Administering the Fiery
The administrator can manage the address books by sending an
e-mail to the Fiery with command codes in the Subject and

with information about each request. When managing address
books, see the following table.

Printing a Configuration page from the Control
Panel
The Configuration page lists all the settings in effect in the current
Setup. After you have finished running Setup, print a
Configuration page to confirm your settings. You can also do this
from Command WorkStation. (See page 5-143).
After you make changes to Setup and choose Exit Setup, the
system restarts. This allows the Fiery to recognize the new
settings and display them properly on the Configuration page.
Allow the system to restart and return to Idle before printing a
Configuration page. In particular, the restart is necessary if you
specified the DHCP or BOOTP protocol to obtain an IP address
automatically for the Fiery.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 155
7
7-156
Administering the Fiery
Post the current Configuration page near the server for quick
reference. Users need the information on this page, such as the
current printer default settings.
Other information pages you can print include the Test Page, Font
List, and Job Log. See Chapter 3 of the Job Management Guide.
To print the configuration page
1. With the printing unit in the READY state, press the
key to
select the Print Information Menu, then press the ENTER key to
select it.
2. Press the
key to select Configuration, then press the ENTER
key to print a configuration page.
Maintaining optimal Fiery performance
The Fiery does not require maintenance. Beyond the obvious
requirements of servicing and maintaining the machine 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 constantly
checks all published connections, even if they are inactive. Match
the NetWare polling interval and the number of queues or
connections to the demand for printing.
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.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 156
7
7-157
•
Maintaining optimal Fiery performance
Reduce unnecessary two-way communication
Large numbers of users running Fiery utilities, especially with
frequent updates, may have a significant effect on Fiery
performance.
•
Make sure you have adequate disk space on the Fiery
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 is frequently low, you can disable
the Printed queue (in Server Setup) 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.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 157
Shutting down, rebooting, and restarting

“Troubleshooting” in the Job Management Guide. These messages
are reported by the job management tools.
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. 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.
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 167

A-168
Troubleshooting
Enter the host name as the Server Name in Fiery Setup.
• Remote printer (internal machine) name. Use one of the
following:
print
hold
Note: If you change the DNS name (also known as the TCP/IP host
name) of the Fiery, you must reconfigure one of the Fiery utilities
on each workstation.
See the following table for the appropriate name.

Cannot connect to Fiery with Fiery utilities
If users cannot connect to the Fiery, check the following:
• Fiery Setup—the appropriate network protocol must be enabled,
with the correct parameters (for example, for TCP/IP, the IP
address), and you must publish either the Print queue or Hold
queue.
You can check these settings quickly by printing a Configuration
page.
• On the client workstation—the appropriate network protocol(s)
must be loaded, and your Windows directory should contain a
configured Efinl.ini file.
Cannot connect to the Fiery with Command WorkStation or
Command WorkStation LE
If there is a problem connecting to the Fiery, an error message is
displayed.
The problem can occur when:
• The printer is initially turned on
• The printer restarts
• You have changed settings affecting the server address and
have not reconfigured the connection to the server
Sharp AR-C360P EFI Configuration Guide - 169

Troubleshooting
If you see this problem, try the following solutions, in this order:
• A remote workstation running Fiery utilities or Fiery WebTools
may be interfering by obtaining status information. If possible,
close the remote application, and try to connect again.
• Restart the Command WorkStation or Command WorkStation LE
software and try to connect again.
• Check the configuration of the connection and modify it, if
necessary, or delete the Efinl.ini file and start over with the
process of configuring the connection, as described in Chapter 1
of the User Software Installation Guide.
• Restart the Fiery.
For information on other error conditions, see the Job
Management Guide.
