BEFORE INSTALLING THE
SOFTWARE
This chapter mainly describes the software programs that allow you to use the printer functions of the machine, the
CD-ROMs that contain the software, and the pages where the installation procedures can be found.
CD-ROMS AND SOFTWARE
The software that can be used with the machine is on the CD-ROMs that accompany the expansion kits.
Before installing the software, make sure that your computer and the machine meet the system requirements described
in "VERIFYING SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS" (page 5).
SOFTWARE CD-ROM THAT ACCOMPANIES THE
PRINTER EXPANSION KIT
The "Software CD-ROM" that accompanies the printer expansion kit contains the printer driver and other software. The
"Software CD-ROM" consists of 2 discs.
For users of Windows NT 4.0
The CD-ROM does not include software for Windows NT 4.0.
Contact your dealer or nearest authorized service representative if you want software for Windows NT 4.0.
Disc 1
Software for Windows
• Printer driver
These allow the machine to be used as a printer.
- PCL6 and PCL5e printer driver
The machine supports the Hewlett-Packard PCL6 and PCL5e printer control languages. It is recommended
that you use the PCL6 printer driver. If you have a problem printing from older software using the PCL6
printer driver, use the PCL5e printer driver.
- PS printer driver
The PS printer driver supports the PostScript 3 page description language developed by Adobe Systems
Incorporated.
- PPD driver
The PPD driver enables the machine to use the standard Windows PS printer driver.
☞ WHEN THE MACHINE IS CONNECTED TO A NETWORK (page 8)
☞ WHEN THE MACHINE WILL BE CONNECTED WITH A USB CABLE (page 15)
• Printer Status Monitor (can only be used when the machine is connected to a network)
This allows you to monitor the status of the machine on your computer screen.
☞ INSTALLING THE PRINTER STATUS MONITOR (page 26)
2
CD-ROMS AND SOFTWARE
Disc 2
Software for Windows
• PC-Fax driver
This enables you to send a file from your computer as a fax using the same procedure as when printing the file.
(When the fax option is installed.)
Even if the fax function is not installed, the PC-Fax driver can be updated using the CD-ROM in the Internet fax
expansion kit to enable you to send a file from your computer as an Internet fax in the same way as you print a file.
☞ INSTALLING THE PRINTER DRIVER / PC-FAX DRIVER (page 8)
The following software can be used only when the machine is connected to a network.
• Printer Administration Utility
This allows the administrator to monitor the machine and configure machine settings from a computer. To install
and use the Printer Administration Utility, see the Readme file and the manual in PDF format on the "Software
CD-ROM" (Disc 2). The Readme file and manual are in the following folder on the CD-ROM. (Substitute the
letter of your CD-ROM drive for "R" in the following path.)
R:\Sadmin\Documents\EnglishA*
* "English A" in North America. "English" in Europe.
Software for Macintosh
• PPD file
This is the printer description file which enables the machine to be used as a PostScript 3 compatible printer.
The PS3 expansion kit is required to use the machine in a Macintosh environment.
☞ MAC OS X (page 29)
☞ MAC OS 9.0 - 9.2.2 (page 34)
• To use the machine as a printer in a Macintosh environment, the printer expansion kit and PS3 expansion
kit are necessary. In addition, the machine must be connected to a network. A USB connection cannot be
used.
• The PC-Fax driver cannot be used in a Macintosh environment.

CD-ROMS AND SOFTWARE
OTHER CD-ROMS
X "PRINTER UTILITIES" CD-ROM that accompanies the PS3 expansion kit
(for Windows/Macintosh)
This contains the display fonts that are used with the PS printer driver.
(Install the PS printer driver and Macintosh PPD file from the "Software CD-ROM".)
☞ INSTALLING THE PS DISPLAY FONTS (page 28)
X "PRINTER UTILITIES" CD-ROM that accompanies the Internet fax
expansion kit (for Windows)
This CD-ROM is used to update the PC-Fax driver on the "Software CD-ROM" that accompanies the printer
expansion kit so that it can be used to send Internet faxes (PC-I-Fax function).
If you wish to use the PC-I-Fax function, first install the PC-Fax driver from the "Software CD-ROM" and then run the
installer on this CD-ROM*. If the PC-Fax driver is already installed, run only the installer. (There is no need to
reinstall the PC-Fax driver.)
* To obtain the PC-Fax driver when the printer expansion kit is not installed, consult your dealer or nearest
authorized service representative.
☞ INSTALLING THE PRINTER DRIVER / PC-FAX DRIVER (page 8)
X "Sharpdesk/Network Scanner Utilities" CD-ROM that accompanies the
network scanner expansion kit (for Windows)
This contains software that helps you get the most out of the images that you scan on the machine. The software
includes "Sharpdesk", a desktop document management application that enables integrated management of
scanned images and files created using a variety of applications. To use the "Scan to Desktop" scanner function, the
"Network Scanner Tool" must be installed from the CD-ROM.
For the system requirements of the software, see the manual (PDF format) or the Readme file on the CD-ROM. For

CONNECTING THE MACHINE
CONNECTING TO A NETWORK
To connect the machine to a network, connect the LAN cable to the machine's network connector. Use a shielded LAN
cable.
After connecting the machine to a network, be sure to configure the IP address and other network settings before
installing the software. (The factory default setting for the IP address is to receive the IP address automatically when the
machine is used in a DHCP environment.)
Network settings can be configured using "Network Settings" in the system settings (administrator) on the machine.
• If the machine is used in a DHCP environment, the IP address of the machine may change. If this happens, printing will not
be possible. This problem can be avoided by using a WINS server or by assigning a permanent IP address to the machine.
• This manual explains how to set up the software in a Windows network environment and in a Macintosh network
environment.
X Checking the IP address of the machine
You can check the IP address of the machine by printing out the "All Custom Setting List" in the system settings. Follow
these steps to print out the "All Custom Setting List".
Press the [SYSTEM SETTINGS] key, touch the [List Print (User)] key, and then touch the [Print] key of "All Custom
Setting List".
CONNECTING THE MACHINE WITH A USB CABLE
(Windows)
The machine can be connected to a computer using a USB cable if the computer is a Windows computer. (The USB
interface on the machine cannot be used in a Macintosh environment.)
The machine and computer should be connected while the printer driver is being installed. If a USB cable is connected
before the printer driver is installed, the printer driver will not be installed correctly. For the procedure for connecting a
USB cable, see "WHEN THE MACHINE WILL BE CONNECTED WITH A USB CABLE" (page 15).

The CD-ROM does not include software for Windows NT 4.0.
Contact your dealer or nearest authorized service representative if you want software for Windows NT 4.0.
INSTALLING THE PRINTER DRIVER / PC-FAX
DRIVER
To install the printer driver or the PC-Fax driver, follow the appropriate procedure in this section depending on whether
the machine is connected to a network or connected by USB cable.
