Chapter 1:
Connecting
to the Network
Fiery EX2101 on the network
This chapter summarizes the stages in setting up the Fiery EX2101, 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 EX2101 on the network
When the Fiery EX2101 is connected to a network, it behaves as a networked
PostScript printer. The built-in Ethernet interface on the Fiery EX2101 supports the
following network protocols:
• AppleTalk
• TCP/IP
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 SMTP (simple mail transfer protocol) is the
protocol that sends e-mail between servers. The SNMP (simple network
management protocol) manages complex networks. The port 9100 is the printer
server port number to publish print connections between the print server and a
remote computer. The IMAP (internet message access protocol) retrieves e-mail
messages. The POP3 (post office protocol) retrieves e-mail messages with or without
SMTP. The http (hypertext transfer protocol) is commonly used for Web pages on
the Internet and on intranets. The http also supports IPP printing.
In addition, the DHCP and BOOTP are used for assigning IP addresses
automatically. These are not shown in the diagrams in this chapter. For more
information, see “TCP/IP Setup options” on page 4-16.
• IPX/SPX (Novell)
IPX/SPX stands for Internetwork Packet Exchange/Sequenced Packet Exchange.
These protocols (rules that enable computers on a network to communicate with each
other) 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. The Fiery EX2101 is
auto-sensing, and can handle all of these connections simultaneously.

Connecting to the Network
When you add the Fiery EX2101 to a network, it is assumed that a network
administrator has already installed a network cabling system and connected
workstations and servers.
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 EX2101 to a functioning network
Prepare a network node for the Fiery EX2101—obtain cable, route it to the location
where the Fiery EX2101 will be installed (near the copier), and attach the cable to the
network interface of the Fiery EX2101. For details, see “Ensuring the copier
connection” on page 3-9.
N OTE : If you plan to run Command WorkStation software, install the software and
connect the Command WorkStation computer to the network along with the
Fiery EX2101. For more information, see the User Software Installation Guide.
•
Configuring the network server
When network servers are required, configure those servers to provide client access to
the Fiery EX2101 as a PCL or PostScript printer. For information on configuring
network servers in Windows and UNIX network environments, see Chapter 2.
•
Setting up the Fiery EX2101
Configure the Fiery EX2101 for your particular printing and network environment.
For details, first read Chapter 2, and then see subsequent chapters.
•
Preparing client workstations for printing
Install the files needed for printing, install additional user software, and connect the
client to the Fiery EX2101 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 EX2101
Monitor and maintain system performance and troubleshoot problems that arise.

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 EX2101 with an arrow indicates that other supported network types
can be operational at the same time.

Setting up
Network Servers
Fiery EX2101 on a TCP/IP network with Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003
This chapter describes environments that typically include one or more network
servers—Novell NetWare servers and Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 servers—that
share printing to the Fiery EX2101. It describes setting up servers that use IPX/SPX
or TCP/IP protocols for communicating with the Fiery EX2101. In addition, it
includes guidelines for setting up direct communication from Windows NT 4.0
/2000/XP/2003 workstations or UNIX workstations, where a network server is
optional. This chapter also outlines the requirements for users to print to the
Fiery EX2101 and run Fiery utilities and Fiery WebTools.
The Fiery EX2101 can accept jobs concurrently from NetWare and
Windows NT 4.0/ 2000/2003 servers, as well as jobs sent directly from
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003 or UNIX workstations. Because AppleShare
servers require no special configuration, they are not discussed in this chapter, except
for use in a Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 environment (see the following section,
“Fiery EX2101 on a TCP/IP network with Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003”).
N OTE : The Fiery EX2101 does not support the Windows 2000/2003 Active Directory
service.
If your network is based on Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003, proceed to the following
section. For information on UNIX workstations, proceed to “Fiery EX2101 on a
network with UNIX workstations” on page 2-16.
Fiery EX2101 on a TCP/IP network with
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003
When a Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003 computer is configured to connect to the
Fiery EX2101 using TCP/IP, it can print directly to the Fiery EX2101. If the computer
shares the printer over the network, it is acting as a print server to Windows 9x/Me and
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP clients. Client computers print to the Fiery EX2101 by
printing to the Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 print server. You can then monitor and
control printing at the Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server computer.

Setting up Network Servers
Typical system combinations are:
• Print server running Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server; clients running
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP Workstation and Windows 9x/Me
• Print server running Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003 Workstation and clients
running Windows 9x/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/2003 workstations, note the following:
•
Make sure you have a valid IP address for the Fiery EX2101 and any workstations that
will print to it or run the Fiery utilities.
•
In Fiery EX2101 Setup, enable TCP/IP and enter the IP address, subnet mask, and
gateway address for the Fiery EX2101.
Enter these addresses manually or use DHCP or BOOTP protocols to assign them
dynamically. Make sure the Fiery EX2101 name and address are listed in a domain
name server (DNS) or hosts name database used by your system. Otherwise, make sure
the system host table includes the correct internal name for the Fiery EX2101 as a
remote printer. For more information, see “Important note about the remote printer
name” on page 2-17.
•
For Windows, install the appropriate printer driver files (PCL or PostScript) on the
Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server.
For more information, see the User Software Installation Guide.
•
Repeat the installation for all users who print to the Fiery EX2101.
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 4.0/2000/2003 server to
communicate with the Fiery EX2101
To configure a Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server to communicate with the
Fiery EX2101, 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 EX2101 in the host database used by your system
(see “To add the Fiery EX2101 to a TCP/IP network with a Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003
server” on page 2-4).
•
Perform Fiery EX2101 Setup.
•
On the Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server, create a printer for each Fiery EX2101
print connection, install the appropriate printer drivers, and (optionally) share the
printer on the network (see “Installing the Fiery EX2101 as a shared printer” on
page 2-5).
•
Enter the host name and remote printer name of the Fiery EX2101 in the printer
connection. For more information, see “Important note about the remote printer
name” on page 2-17.
•
If the Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server is also a workstation, install Fiery utilities
(see the User Software Installation Guide).
Adding the Fiery EX2101 to the TCP/IP network
If your TCP/IP network consists of Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 servers, and
Windows 98/Me and Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003 clients, follow the procedures
in this section. If the network also includes UNIX workstations, also see the
procedures in “Setting up the Fiery EX2101 on TCP/IP networks” on page 2-17.

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 4.0/2000/2003 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 “Printing a Configuration page from the Control Panel” on page 7-10).
N OTE : If the Fiery EX2101 has already been defined in an /etc/hosts file or equivalent
host name database on a UNIX workstation on your network, we recommend that you
use the same host name here as you used for the name of the remote printer in the
/etc/printcap file.

Fiery EX2101 on a TCP/IP network with Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003
Installing the Fiery EX2101 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. Use the installation instructions in the User
Software Installation Guide for every workstation that will print directly and
independently to the Fiery EX2101. However, if you are an administrator running a
Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server or Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP 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 EX2101 to print through the server.
You can specify sharing of the printer during installation of the Fiery EX2101
printer files. If you have not yet installed the Fiery EX2101 printer files on the
Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 print server computer, do so now, following the
instructions in the User Software Installation Guide. During installation, enter the
information necessary to share the Fiery EX2101.
If you have already installed the Fiery EX2101 printer files on the computer you are
using as a Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 print server, see your Windows
documentation for information about sharing the Fiery EX2101.
If more than one Fiery EX2101 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 you and other users can print to each connection directly. When
prompted to specify the printer name, enter a name that indicates the Fiery EX2101
print connection.

Setting up Network Servers
Configuring clients of a Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server
Each client of a Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server is already using a network
protocol to communicate with the server. Each client can print to the Fiery EX2101 if
it has been shared by a Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server or Windows NT 4.0
/2000/XP/2003 clients. In that case, the client does not have to use the same network
protocol to connect to the Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server as the server uses to
communicate with the Fiery EX2101.

Fiery EX2101 on a TCP/IP network with Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003
Configuring Windows computers without a Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server
If your network does not have a Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server, Windows 9x/Me
and Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP workstations can still print to the Fiery EX2101. This
method of printing is called Windows, or SMB printing. In this type of network
environment, computers running Windows 9x/Me and Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP
workstations operate in a peer-to-peer environment and communicate directly with
the Fiery EX2101 when users send print jobs.
Many of the same prerequisites for setting up printing through a Windows NT 4.0/
2000/2003 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 “Printing a Configuration page from the Control Panel”
on page 7-10).
Use the information on this page to determine the current Fiery EX2101 settings.
•
Load the TCP/IP network protocol on the computer (for Windows 98/Me, load
File and printer sharing for Microsoft Network. For Windows 2000/XP/2003 load

Setting up Network Servers
Fiery EX2101 on a NetWare network
The NetWise™ features built into the Fiery EX2101 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.
For Ethernet-based networks, the IPX/SPX protocol is supported.
N OTE : 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.
The term “bindery server” is used to refer to a Novell file server running NetWare in
bindery 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 EX2101 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 EX2101 can receive print jobs from NetWare servers over Ethernet network
topologies. During Fiery EX2101 Setup, you select the frame type or types that will be
used for communication between the Fiery EX2101 and network servers. Frame type
refers to the format of a communications packet.

Fiery EX2101 on a NetWare network
Tips for experts—IPX networks
Setting up the Fiery EX2101 is similar to setting up any other PostScript printer on
the network.
The Fiery EX2101 with IPX connections has the following characteristics:
•
A minimum connection to the Fiery EX2101 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 EX2101 looks for print jobs on one NetWare print server per bindery server.
•
Queues in each print server can store jobs for any print connection on the
Fiery EX2101.
Overview of IPX printing to the Fiery EX2101
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 EX2101 print connection, as follows:
_print
_hold
_direct
N OTE : These extension names must be in English and in all lowercase letters.
2
2-10
Setting up Network Servers
You do not need to rerun Setup when you add or remove a NetWare queue; however,
you should restart the Fiery EX2101 after you create or remove a queue.
When the Fiery EX2101 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 EX2101.
For example, jobs from the NetWare queue with the _print extension are sent to the
Fiery EX2101 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 EX2101 from their workstations, and the Fiery EX2101 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 “Setting up an NDS
connection” on page 2-12).
• For NetWare in emulation mode, set the bindery context (see “Setting the NetWare
bindery context” on page 2-12).
• For NetWare in bindery emulation, set up a file server, print server, and Print queue
for the Fiery EX2101 (see “Setting up a NetWare Print queue for bindery” on
page 2-13).
2
2-11
Fiery EX2101 on a NetWare network
With bindery services, you can route all Fiery EX2101 print jobs through the same
NetWare file server, or you can configure more than one file server to handle

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 EX2101, 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.
The top-level tree object is known as the [Root] object. 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 EX2101. If you need to connect
additional NetWare servers, you can do so by using bindery emulation. You can
connect up to eight bindery servers to the Fiery EX2101.
N OTE : The file server you select must not be in the same tree as the one you selected in
NDS Setup.
2
2-13
Fiery EX2101 on a NetWare network
In order to set up the NetWare server in bindery emulation mode for printing to the
Fiery EX2101, the network administrator must do the following:
• Determine the Directory Services path to the container in which the print server and
the Fiery EX2101 Print queue will be created.
The container defines the “bindery context” for your network structure.
• Edit the bindery context.
• Activate the new bindery context.
Setting up a NetWare Print queue for bindery
For NetWare in bindery emulation mode, the NetWare print server and the
Fiery EX2101 Print queue must be created and configured.
As with NDS, you can create several NetWare entities on a Novell server, and you can
then select them in Network Setup (see “PServer Setup options” on page 4-22).
Setting up NetWare Windows clients for printing
Before setting up client workstations for printing, perform Network Setup (see
“Network Setup options” on page 4-13), and verify that the settings reflect the entities
you created in the NetWare administrator utilities (see “Configuring a NetWare server
for printing” on page 2-10).
N OTE : For printing to the Fiery EX2101, connect all Windows clients to a NetWare
server and permit them to connect to the Print queues for the Fiery EX2101.
After the Novell server and the Fiery EX2101 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/SPX-compatible protocol and
the Client for NetWare Networks from the Network Control Panel.
On Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP workstations, install Client Services for NetWare.
Use the CSNW option in the Control Panel to set printing options and specify a
preferred NetWare server.
2
2-14
Setting up Network Servers
• Setting up the Fiery EX2101 as a PostScript printer by installing a PostScript printer
driver and the Fiery EX2101 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 EX2101.
• Installing Fiery EX2101 software.
For details, see the User Software Installation Guide.
Fiery EX2101 on a NetWare network with NDPS
The Fiery EX2101 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 EX2101 takes advantage of features in NDPS (Novell Distributed Print
Services). For IPX printing, the Fiery EX2101 supports the PServer service in Bindery
emulation or through NDS (Novell Directory Services). For more information on
IPX-based printing, see “Fiery EX2101 on a NetWare network” on page 2-8.
N OTE : 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.
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 9x/Me and Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP
computers.
During Fiery EX2101 Setup, you select the frame type or types that will be used for
communication between the Fiery EX2101 and network servers. Frame type refers to
the format of a communications packet.

2-15
Fiery EX2101 on a NetWare network with NDPS
Tips for experts—NetWare networks
Setting up the Fiery EX2101 in an NDPS environment is similar to setting up any
other PostScript printer on the network. When setting up the Fiery EX2101 in such an
environment, refer to the following information:
•
Make sure you have a valid IP address for the Fiery EX2101 and for any workstations
that will print to it or run Fiery utilities.
•
In Fiery EX2101 Setup, enable TCP/IP and enter the IP address, subnet mask, and
gateway address for the Fiery EX2101. You can enter these manually or use DHCP or
BOOT protocols to assign the addresses dynamically.
•
Bidirectional communication features in NDPS are not supported on the Fiery EX2101.
Configuring a NetWare server for printing with NDPS
To configure a NetWare server for printing with NDPS, NDPS must be installed
during NetWare 5.x or later installation, and 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 NDPS Manager. For more information, see your NetWare documentation.
In Fiery EX2101 Setup, make sure you have enabled TCP/IP (see “TCP/IP Setup
options” on page 4-16) and LPD printing (see “LPD Setup options” on page 4-22) on
the Fiery EX2101. Ping the Fiery EX2101 (see “ping <IP address>” on page 2-18) to
verify that TCP/IP communication is successful.

2-16
Setting up Network Servers
Fiery EX2101 on a network with UNIX workstations
When a UNIX workstation is configured with the lpd protocol and connected to the
Fiery EX2101 over a TCP/IP network, it can print directly to the Fiery EX2101.
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 EX2101 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 EX2101 in a UNIX environment has the same requirements as
setting up any printer or new device:
•
A distinct IP address is required for the Fiery EX2101 as well as for each workstation
on the network.
•
A name must be selected for the Fiery EX2101 that goes with the IP address.
•
The IP address of the Fiery EX2101 must be registered for the network in a host
database, and also on the Fiery EX2101 itself.
•
At least one print connection (Print or Hold) must be published.
The following information applies especially to the Fiery EX2101:
•
The Fiery EX2101 is a printer controller that understands lpd protocols.
•
The Fiery EX2101 has a remote printer name you must use in order to communicate
with it successfully.
For details, see the following section.
2
2-17
Fiery EX2101 on a network with UNIX workstations
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 EX2101 must be one of the following:
print
hold
The remote printer name is also used when setting up your Windows NT 4.0
/2000/2003 server or Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003 workstation to connect to the
Fiery EX2101 over TCP/IP. Enter the remote printer name when you set up your
Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 printer, as the “Name of printer or Print queue on that
(lpd host) server” in the Add LPR Compatible Printer dialog box.
For the Windows 2000/XP/2003 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 EX2101 on TCP/IP networks
Every machine (host) on a TCP/IP network, including the Fiery EX2101, must have a
unique 32-bit internet address (IP address). Contact your network administrator to
obtain an address for the Fiery EX2101. Workstations on a TCP/IP network can print
directly to the Fiery EX2101 as a remote printer, or can print to a
Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server or UNIX workstation acting as a print server.
Since the Fiery EX2101 spools jobs and acts as a print server, there is no advantage in
placing another print server between a workstation and the Fiery EX2101. 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.

PRINT TO THE
F IERY EX2101
•
On a UNIX system running Solaris 8, use the lp command to send a job to the
Fiery EX2101.
•
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP users with the TCP/IP protocol loaded can send print jobs to
the Fiery EX2101 from their applications or from a command prompt.
When Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP users print from applications, they can set print
options with the driver but not from the UNIX command line.
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 to UNIX servers. If the network
includes a Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP workstation that has TCP/IP protocols loaded,
you can use Command WorkStation or Fiery Downloader™ to download fonts
and files.
The job management tools also allow you to manage jobs from remote workstations.
For more information, see the Job Management Guide.
Even without the Fiery utilities, you can:
• Set up the Fiery EX2101 to print a log of printed jobs automatically after every 55
jobs (see “Job Log Setup” on page 4-46).
• Print a Job Log manually at any time from the Command WorkStation Functions
menu (see the Job Management Guide).

Chapter 3:
Preparing for
Fiery EX2101
Setup
Levels of access and control
To prepare for printing at your site, you must do some initial Fiery EX2101
configuration, or Setup, to specify the network environment and the kind of printing
you 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 EX2101 system software is structured in order to configure and use the
Fiery EX2101 system correctly.
Levels of access and control
When you configure the Fiery EX2101 during Setup, you (as system administrator)
implement a particular level of control by enabling or not enabling print connections,
passwords, and access to Fiery 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 EX2101 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 EX2101 disk until the operator decides it is
time to print them. In addition, only the administrator and operator have access to
job management tools. We recommend this level of control.
Fiery EX2101 print connections
The Fiery EX2101 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 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 EX2101 than the Hold queue.
Therefore, do not publish the Print queue and the Direct connection in environments
where maximum control is desired.
3
3-2
Preparing for Fiery EX2101 Setup
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 4-13). Reprinting jobs in the Printed
queue requires the job management tools.
To use the Fiery utilities and Fiery WebTools, you must enable at least one print
connections.
Hold queue
Jobs sent to the Hold queue are spooled to the Fiery EX2101 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 (see the Job Management Guide).
Print queue
This is the standard Fiery EX2101 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 take priority over jobs sent
to the Print queue.
Direct connection
The Direct connection transmits jobs directly to the Fiery EX2101, but only when the
Fiery EX2101 is Idle. If the Fiery EX2101 is busy, the job remains at the user
workstation until the Fiery EX2101 is ready. The job is then processed as soon as the
previous job is finished and before the next queued job is processed.
Jobs sent to the Direct connection are not stored on the Fiery EX2101 hard disk, and
cannot be selected for reprinting, moving, or deletion. Jobs sent to the Direct
connection do appear in the Job Log, for accounting purposes.
N OTE : To download fonts to the Fiery EX2101, you must publish the Direct
connection.
N OTE : The Direct connection is not supported for LPR printing.
3
3-3
Levels of access and control
Passwords
You can implement passwords as a means of controlling access to Fiery EX2101
functions. The Fiery EX2101 allows you to set the following passwords in Setup:
• Administrator—from the Control Panel, WebSetup, or Command WorkStation (or
local Setup, if you have the Fiery Advanced Controller Interface [FACI] installed)
• Operator—from WebSetup or Command WorkStation
These passwords, specific to the server process, have different uses than the
Windows XP Administrator password. Keep careful track of the passwords you set
for each.
N OTE : By default, no passwords are set on the Fiery EX2101. 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 EX2101 from random or accidental changes to Setup. For information on
setting or changing the passwords, see “Setting passwords” on page 7-2.
N OTE : The FACI is available as an option.
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 EX2101 of all job data, and setting default
values for print options.
When performing a function from the Fiery EX2101 Control Panel that prompts you
for the Administrator password, you must enter it promptly. Otherwise, the
Fiery EX2101 Control Panel returns to Idle, and you must start over again.
Operator privileges
Operator control includes control of print jobs from the job management tools,
including the ability to override job settings.
3
3-4
Preparing for Fiery EX2101 Setup
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 EX2101 state.
Fiery WebTools
The Fiery EX2101 can support Internet or intranet access from Windows and Mac OS
computers with Fiery WebTools. To enable use of Fiery WebTools, you must do the
following in Setup:
• Enable TCP/IP.
• Set an IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address for the Fiery EX2101.
• Enable Web Services.
For more information, see Chapter 6.
N OTE : Fiery WebTools are not supported on Mac OS X.
You can set passwords to control access to Fiery WebTools features. If you do not
specifically set these passwords, all users have access to all Fiery WebTools functions
(see “Passwords” on page 3-3). Fiery WebTools include Status™, WebLink™,
WebDownloader™, WebSetup, WebSpooler™, and Installer™.
Status
The Status WebTool provides you with current information on the jobs processing and
printing on the Fiery EX2101. It is not affected by passwords. For more information,
see the Printing Guide.
WebLink
WebLink provides all users with a link to an address on the Internet. To change the
WebLink Internet address, see “Setting the WebLink destination” on page 6-3. This
function requires the Administrator password, if one has been set (see “Passwords” on
page 3-3).
N OTE : 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.
3
3-5
Levels of access and control
WebDownloader
WebDownloader allows you to print PostScript, EPS, PDF, and TIFF files directly to
the Fiery EX2101 without first opening the file in an application.
For information on supported file versions, see the User Software Installation Guide.
WebSetup
WebSetup allows you to view and modify Fiery EX2101 Setup options from a remote
workstation. For more information, see Chapter 5.
N OTE : WebSetup is supported on Windows computers only.
WebSpooler
WebSpooler interface is very similar to that of Command WorkStation. It allows
remote users to preview, manipulate, reorder, reprint, and delete jobs currently
spooling, processing, or printing on the Fiery EX2101. It also allows the administrator
and operator to edit and merge jobs (Thumbnails A and B) and view, print, or delete
the Job Log.
You control WebSpooler access by setting an Operator password in Setup. If you set a
password, only users with that password can manipulate jobs from WebSpooler. A user
who does not have the password can still log in to WebSpooler as a Guest with viewonly access (see “Passwords” on page 3-3). For more information, see the Job
Management Guide.
Installer
The Installer WebTool allows users to download installers for printer drivers directly
from the Fiery EX2101. It is not affected by passwords. For more information, see the
User Software Installation Guide.

Preparing for Fiery EX2101 Setup
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 then refer to the corresponding number in the table for guidance on
how to configure your system for those requirements.
N OTE : 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 EX2101, deleting printer fonts, setting the WebLink address, printing to all
Fiery EX2101 print connections, and managing all jobs from the job management
tools.
2.

Fiery EX2101 system software
The Fiery EX2101 uses Windows XP Embedded system architecture to receive and
process jobs and send job data to the copier. To log on to the Fiery EX2101, enter
Administrator as the user name, and enter the password (“Fiery.1”).
N OTE : Configuring and monitoring the Windows XP functions from the
Fiery EX2101 require the FACI option. For more information, contact your
authorized service/support technician.
Resident on the Windows XP software is the following software unique to
the Fiery EX2101:
• Server—The Server is an independent software process started automatically
whenever Windows XP is started. As the central element of Fiery EX2101 system
software, the Server process controls the spooling, rasterizing, and printing of jobs,
as well as job accounting (the Job Log), storage, and retrieval.
When the Server is not running, jobs cannot be received by the Fiery EX2101, job
processing cannot occur, job data cannot be transferred to the copier for printing,
and the job management tools cannot connect to the Fiery EX2101. In the event
that you must restart the Server process, right-click FieryBar™ and choose
Restart Fiery.
• Command WorkStation—Command WorkStation is the interface tool for the
Server. It provides a graphical interface for viewing and controlling Server functions.

Preparing for Fiery EX2101 Setup
About Setup
Setup configures the Fiery EX2101 to communicate with other devices and manage
print jobs. You must perform Setup the first time you turn on the Fiery EX2101 after
new system software is loaded. An initial Setup using default settings is adequate for
allowing users to print to the Fiery EX2101 and use the Fiery 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 Fiery EX2101 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 Control Panel
(see “Fiery EX2101 Control Panel” on page 4-3) or Command WorkStation (see
“Accessing Setup” on page 5-1). You can set most Setup options using these methods.
N OTE : Configuring and monitoring the Windows XP functions on the Fiery EX2101
require the FACI. For more information, contact your authorized service/support
technician.
N OTE : The FACI is available as an option.
If you do not configure the remaining Setups, the Fiery EX2101 uses default settings.
You need to make settings appropriate for the printing environment at your site.
Local Setup from the Fiery EX2101
You can also perform Setup locally at the Fiery EX2101, using Setup from FieryBar.
Some of the settings you specify in Setup configure the Server process (such as print
job defaults), while some configure the Windows XP Workstation environment (such
as system date and time). Depending on the settings you change in Setup, you must
restart FieryBar or Windows XP before your changes take effect.
Setup options for local Setup are divided into three groups:
General Setup
System settings, passwords, and Job Log options
Network Setup
All the active network system settings that transmits print jobs
to the Fiery EX2101 and available services
Printer Setup
Fiery EX2101 print connections to be made available to users,
and PostScript and PCL defaults for jobs
3
3-9
About Setup
N OTE : Local Setup requires the FACI option.
Network server setup requirements
For Novell and Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 (using TCP/IP) networks, you must
configure the network servers for printing to the Fiery EX2101 before you configure
Fiery EX2101 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 that the Fiery EX2101 can query the network for zones, servers, and server-based
queues.
Whenever the configuration of the Fiery EX2101, the copier, 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 make changes
to other Setup options, as well.
N OTE : You must configure the Fiery EX2101 with the correct Windows NT 4.0
/2000/2003 domain name. This is especially important for Windows printing, also
known as SMB printing. If you have the FACI installed, right-click the My Computer
icon on the desktop and choose Properties. In the System Properties dialog box, click
the Computer Name tab, then click Change to enter the correct domain name in the
Computer Name Changes dialog box. This requires the user name and password of a
user who can add workstations to the specified domain. For configurations that do not
include the FACI, you must add the Fiery EX2101 to the domain from a networked

After you perform initial Setup (Server, Network, and Printer Setup) from the Control
Panel, you can change most Setup options from a Windows computer.
Accessing Setup
In addition to using the Control Panel, you can set up the Fiery EX2101 in two ways:
locally and remotely. Local Setup is for systems with the FACI. Local Setup uses a
Windows XP application, Fiery Server Setup. Remote Setup is performed from a
Windows computer using Fiery WebSetup or Command WorkStation.
N OTE : In this chapter, illustrations for both Setup interfaces, where applicable, appear
side by side: local Setup on the left, remote Setup on the right. Descriptions for the
Setup options are listed in the order in which they appear on the local Setup window.
Some Setup options cannot be accessed from remote Setup. Use local Setup or the
Fiery EX2101 Control Panel instead.
N OTE : The FACI is available as an option.
Regardless of how you access Setup, you must log in as Administrator, both at the
Fiery EX2101 and within the Setup application you use. After the Fiery EX2101
restarts, log in to the Windows XP Logon window with Administrator as the login
name and enter the password, if required.
N OTE : The default Windows XP password is “Fiery.1”. You are always prompted to
enter this password unless you have set a new password.
To use the Setup applications (Fiery WebSetup, Command WorkStation or Fiery
Server Setup), you must enter the Fiery EX2101 Administrator password. This is set
either from the local Setup at the Fiery Server Setup, or remote Setup from Fiery
WebSetup or Command WorkStation.

instructions on how to turn on and shut down the Fiery EX2101, see “Starting and
shutting down the Fiery EX2101” on page 7-14.
If the Fiery EX2101 hard disk or system software experiences technical difficulties,
data stored and saved on the Fiery EX2101 hard disk might be irretrievably lost.
Extended storage of the following data on your Fiery EX2101 hard disk cannot be
assured if unexpected events occur:
• Third party fonts installed on Fiery EX2101 hard disk
• Print jobs stored on the Fiery EX2101 hard disk
• Job notes and instructions

• Variable data documents
• E-mail Service Address Book
• Hot Folder settings when Hot Folder is installed on the Fiery EX2101 hard disk
• Fiery EX2101 configuration information that lists all the settings in effect from the
current system setup
You can restore the system on the Fiery EX2101 hard disk should anything happen to
the print server hard disk. However, system settings that were changed or specified
prior to hard disk breakdown will not be restored. Also, the E-mail Service Address
Book or Hot Folder settings will be lost when the system is restored or if the
Fiery EX2101 hard disk is replaced with a new one.
Managing Fiery Address Books
The E-mail Service feature allows an administrator to import a list of e-mail addresses
to the Fiery EX2101. This is done by sending messages to the Fiery EX2101 in e-mail
form. The list will be added to the Fiery Address Books, designed for controlling user
access to E-mail Services.
N OTE : E-mail messages can only be sent from an administrator account.
The Fiery EX2101 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 EX2101,
and cancel or get status on 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 EX2101. Unauthorized users receive an e-mail reply that their job was not
accepted by the Fiery EX2101 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 EX2101.
7
7-7
Managing Fiery Address Books
When a print job is submitted via e-mail, the Fiery EX2101 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 EX2101 until the administrator adds the first entry in the
Print address book.
The administrator can manage the address books by sending an e-mail to the
Fiery EX2101 with command codes in the subject and message fields. The
Fiery EX2101 responds by e-mail to these commands 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. The Configuration page can also be printed from Command WorkStation
(for details, see “Printing the Configuration page” on page 5-44).
After you make changes to Setup and choose Exit Setup, the Fiery EX2101 restarts,
allowing the Fiery EX2101 to recognize the new settings and display them properly on
the Configuration page. Before printing a Configuration page, allow the Fiery EX2101
to restart and return to Idle. In particular, the restart is necessary if you specified the
DHCP or BOOTP protocol to obtain an IP address automatically for the
Fiery EX2101.
Post the current Configuration page near the server for quick reference. Users require
the information on this page, such as the current printer default settings.
Other pages you can print from the Control Panel of the Fiery EX2101 or from
Command WorkStation include the PS and PCL Test Pages, PS and PCL Font Lists,
E-mail Log, FTP Log, and Job Log. For information on these pages, see the Job

Maintaining optimal Fiery EX2101 performance
Maintaining optimal Fiery EX2101 performance
The Fiery EX2101 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 EX2101 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.
•
Reduce unnecessary two-way communication
Large numbers of users running Fiery utilities, especially with frequent updates, may
have a significant effect on Fiery EX2101 performance.
•
Make sure you have adequate disk space on the Fiery EX2101
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 EX2101 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.

Novell NetWare has reported an error.
Command WorkStation reports the error number and displays a brief message.
For the most common errors (listed in the following table),
a screen is displayed that allows you to retry the action that
evoked the error, such as adding a server. If that is
not possible, you are prompted to notify the Novell administrator, who will need to troubleshoot the network.
Consult NetWare Administrator documentation for further explanation of Novell error codes.
In Network Setup, when you configure the IPX (Novell) connection, the
Fiery EX2101 queries the network for Novell file servers and trees, and attaches to
them temporarily. If a guest login is enabled, it will be used. If not, you are prompted
to log in from Command WorkStation.
If the selected NetWare file server or tree does not have a guest account, or if the guest
account has expired or been disabled by the NetWare supervisor, you will be prompted
to notify the IPX (Novell) administrator. In that case, there are two options:
• Enable a guest account on the NetWare server or tree for the purpose of setup.
• Log in with a different account. At the ENTER LOGIN NAME screen, change the default
name (guest) to supervisor or enter another valid login name. When you are
prompted for a password, enter the correct password for the account you named.
For any Novell error, make sure:

Troubleshooting
Cannot connect to Fiery EX2101 with Fiery utilities
If users cannot connect to the Fiery EX2101, check the following:
• Fiery EX2101 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 EX2101 with Command WorkStation or
Command WorkStation LE
If there is a problem connecting to the Fiery EX2101, an error message is displayed.
The problem can occur when:
• The Fiery EX2101 is initially turned on.
• The Fiery EX2101 restarts.
• You have changed settings affecting the server address and have not reconfigured the
connection to the server.
If you see this problem, try the following solutions in sequence:
• 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 the User Software Installation Guide.
For Windows 98/Me/2003, the Efinl.ini file is located in \WINDOWS.
For Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP, the Efinl.ini file is located in \WINNT.
• Restart the Fiery EX2101.
