Before you specify the machine’s protocol settings, it is necessary to specify the
machine’s IP address to enable communication between the machine and your
computers. You can use any of the following to specify the settings. Specify the
settings using the easiest method.
machine’s operation panel
• The
ARP/PING commands
• NetSpot
Device Installer (Canon utility software included in the User Software CD)
IMPORTANT
• In the following operations, the machine’s MAC address is necessary. To check the MAC
address from the machine’s operation panel, print a USER DATA LIST. (Refer to Chapter
6, "Reports and Lists," in the Facsimile Guide.)
• Before you perform the following operations in this section, check that the machine is ON
and connected to the network.
• If you are using ARP/PING commands, the following steps directly allocate the IP
address to the machine. For this machine, in addition to direct allocation of the IP
address to the machine, you can use DHCP, BOOTP, or RARP to specify the IP address.
When the machine is started or reset, it checks whether DHCP, BOOTP, or RARP is
being used, and then allocates an IP address using the first available setting method.
Because the machine’s IP address is automatically allocated at this time, it is not
necessary for you to perform the following operations in this section. However if you are
reallocating the IP address, or if DHCP, BOOTP, or RARP is not used, perform the
following operations.

CHAPTER
This chapter describes how to resolve printing problems, network setting items and software
for doing so, the glossary, and the index.
Troubleshooting
This section describes how to resolve basic printing problems.
NOTE
If you cannot resolve your technical problem by referring to the information in this section,
contact Canon Authorized Service Facilities or the Canon Customer Care Center at 1800-828-4040 between the hours of 8:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. EST Monday through Friday
and 10:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. on Saturday.
Unable to Print from a TCP/IP Network
Cause 1
The machine and cable are not properly connected.
Remedy
After checking the following connections, restart the machine.
Check that the machine is connected to the network using the proper cable.
(Refer to "To Use the Machine as a Network Printer (Network Connection)," in
the Quick Start Guide.)
Cause 2
TCP/IP network is not properly set up.
Remedy
Confirm that the IP addresses are properly set up. Check if the IP addresses
were set using DHCP, BOOTP, or RARP, and then confirm that they are
operating.
Cause 3
The computer that is printing is not properly set up.
Remedy
Check the following:
Troubleshooting
3-1
• Confirm that the proper printer driver is installed. If you are printing from a
computer, each computer must have a printer driver installed. For instructions
on installing printer drivers, refer to the Software Guide.
• Confirm that the correct printer is set as the output destination for the
computer that is printing. Check the output destination for the printer in the
[Control Panel].
The name of the file being printed is too long.
Remedy
Normally LPR (or the Microsoft TCP/IP Printer, if you are using Windows 2000/
XP) sends jobs either under the name of the application software used for
printing, or the file name. However, a job name longer than 255 characters
cannot be sent to the printer. To correct this problem, rename the file with a
shorter name.

Glossary
BOOTP
BOOTstrap Protocol. A protocol that enables a client machine to automatically obtain
network setup information from a server over a TCP/IP network. BOOTP enables a client
to automatically locate such information as the host name, domain name, and IP address,
so that it is not necessary to create these items manually.
Buffer size
Cookie
A file left on a user’s computer when the user visits a web site. A cookie allows the web
site to recognize the user on subsequent visits. Cookies are generally used to enable a
user to automatically sign on to certain web sites and to customize the features offered by
such sites.
Daemon
A process that runs in the background and performs a specified operation, at predefined
times or in response to certain events. Typical daemons include print spoolers and
automated network information system protocols.
DHCP
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. A protocol that automatically specifies the network
settings of a client on a TCP/IP network. Many of the settings required to set up TCP/IP,
which is the standard protocol of the Internet, can be made automatically.
Ethernet
An industry-standard local area network (LAN) system for connecting together multiple
computers. Data is sent from one computer to another by breaking it into packets, and a
packet reaches its destination smoothly without any collision with other packets.
File server
A personal computer or workstation to which two or more users on client personal
computers can gain access via a local area network (LAN) in order to share and use its
hard disk drive.
Gateway Address
The default address of a network or Web site. It provides a single domain name and point
of entry to the site.
Glossary
3-7
Appendix
3
The size of a data area, or buffer, shared by devices or programs working at different
speeds or with different priorities. The buffer is designed to prevent one device or process
from being held up by another. For this to be possible, the buffer must be set up correctly.
HP-GL/2
A graphics language that allows computer applications to draw graphic images using
printers. Images in HP-GL/2 are represented as vector graphics. Vector objects describe
an image in terms of geometric shapes, such as lines and polygons, and fills. HP-GL/2 is
supported by your Canon machine.
HTTP
Hypertext Transfer Protocol. The client-server TCP/IP protocol used on the World Wide
Web for the transfer of HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) documents across the
Internet.
Internet Protocol (IP)
The underlying set of networking rules that describes how data is transmitted across the
Internet. Internet Protocol allows data from one computer to be split into packets to be
sent to another computer with a specific IP address.
Appendix
3
IP address
Internet Protocol address. A 32-bit numeric address used by IP (internet protocol) to
specify a computer on the Internet. The IP address is usually written as four numbers
separated by periods. An example is 128.121.4.5.
LAN
Local Area Network. It is a network system formed by linking a server, workstations, and
computers, which are all located in the same building or some other relatively limited area.
Log in
Entering a user name and password as a means of user authentication to start a
computer session or access to a service.
LPD
Line Printer Daemon. A daemon is a program that runs, without human intervention, to
accomplish a given task. The Line Printer Daemon controls the flow of print jobs to a
printer.
MAC address
Media Access Control address. The hardware address of the network adapter of a
computer connected to a local area network.
Protocol
A set of rules that govern the transmission of data across a network. Examples of
protocols are FTP, DHCP, BOOTP, RARP, IPP, and TCP/IP.
Proxy server
A server that provides a cache of files available on remote servers that are slow or
expensive to access. The term “proxy server” normally refers to a World Wide Web server
that, on receiving a URL, tries to supply the requested file from its cache. If it cannot
locate the file there, the proxy server would bring it from the remote server and also save
a copy in its cache so that the next request can be obtained locally.
3-8
Glossary
RARP
Reverse Address Resolution Protocol. A protocol that associates a network adapter
address (MAC address) with an Internet Protocol (IP) address.
Raster
Raster graphics describes an image as a pattern of dots, compared to vector graphics
which represents an image as a geometrical formula. Each row of color dots in the mosaic
of color dots constitutes one raster graphic. In a printer, a raster graphic is used as the
master image from which a page is printed, because the image can be transferred to
paper by printing one raster at a time.
Raw
This is a print application used with Windows 2000/XP. It can print at higher speeds than
LPD.
Appendix
RIP (Raster Image Processor)
The hardware and/or software functions of a printer that convert vector graphic
descriptions from a computer into raster graphic images that can be printed.
SMB
Server Message Block. A protocol that provides file and printer sharing over a network for
Windows computers.
Source Routing
Normally, a host has no control over the route taken by a packet it sends. Source routing is
a technique whereby the sender of a packet can specify the route that a packet should
take through the network to its destination.
Spooling
Simultaneous Peripheral Operations On-Line. Spooling means putting jobs in a buffer,
which is a special area in memory or on a disk. Because devices access data at different
rates, the buffer provides a waiting station where the data can wait until the device for
which it is meant is ready to access it.
Subnet Mask
SUBNETwork mask. The method used to determine which subgroup, or subnet, an IP
address belongs to on TCP/IP networks, all devices whose IP addresses have the same
prefix would belong to the same subnet. Dividing a network into subnets is useful for both
security and performance reasons.
Glossary

3-9
Switching hub
A network connection box to which a number of computers can be connected. The
switching hub forwards a data packet from the network to the appropriate computer
according to the packet’s address. Conventional hubs simply send every packet to every
connected computer. Since a switching hub forwards packets only to their intended
recipients, it provides greater efficiency.
TCP/IP
Acronym for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. The protocol used to
connect to the Internet and to wide-area networks.
URL
Uniform Resource Locator. A standard way of specifying the location of an object, usually
a web page, on the Internet. The URL for a web page would look something like this:
"http://www.w3.org". Here, “http:” indicates that a web page is being accessed,
“//www.w3.org” is the address of the server containing the web page.
