Introduction
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 highperformance 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.
N OTE : The term “Fiery” is used in this manual to refer to the Fiery Network Controller
for C9800. 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
C9800. 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 Release Notes.

1-1 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.

1-2 Connecting to 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 3-8.
•
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.
The protocols used in these diagrams are indicated as follows:

Ethernet connection
For Ethernet connections, the Fiery supports cabling, defined as Category 5 for use
with 100BaseT; or as Category 3, Category 4, or Category 5 for use with 10BaseT.
The cable uses an 8-pin RJ-45 connector that plugs into the RJ-45 socket on the
C9800.
N OTE : The 100BaseT type supported by the Fiery is 100BaseTX, also known as Fast
Ethernet. If an Ethernet hub is used, it must be a 100BaseTX hub. The term
“100BaseT” is used to refer to 100BaseTX.
TO CONNECT TO THE E THERNET PORT
•
Connect the network cable to the RJ-45 connector on the back of the printer.
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.
N OTE : 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 C9800 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 1-11.
2. Connect the other end of the cable to the parallel or USB port on the Windows computer.
3. Turn on the computer and the C9800.

2-1 Fiery on a TCP/IP network with Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003/Server 2003
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 2-17.
Fiery on a TCP/IP network with
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003/Server 2003
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.
2
2-2 Setting up Network Servers
Typical system combinations are:
• Print server running Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 Server; clients running
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003 Workstation and Windows 98/Me
• 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 2-18.
•
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 2-4).
•
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 2-5).
•
Enter the host name and remote printer name of the Fiery in the printer connection.
For more information, see page 2-18.
•
If the Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 server is also a workstation, install Fiery
utilities (see the User Software Installation Guide).
2
2-4 Setting up Network Servers
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 2-19.
TO ADD THE F IERY TO A TCP/IP NETWORK WITH A W INDOWS NT 4.0/
2000/S ERVER 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 7-8).
N OTE : 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).
2
2-5 Fiery on a TCP/IP network with Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003/Server 2003
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.
2
2-6 Setting up Network Servers
Configuring clients of a Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 2003 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 F IERY SHARED
BY A W INDOWS NT 4.0/2000/S ERVER 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.

2-7 Fiery on a TCP/IP network with Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/Server 2003/Server 2003
Configuring Windows computers without a Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server
2003 server
If your network does not have a Windows NT 4.0/2000/Server 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-topeer 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 5-33).
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 page 2-19).
•
Insert the C9800 Driver CD and wait for it to autorun.
If the CD does not start automatically, click [Start]→ [Run] and enter E:\Setup (where
E is your CD-ROM drive) in the Open field, then click on [OK].

2-8 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.
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.
N OTE : 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.
2
2-9 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
N OTE : 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.
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
2
2-10 Setting up Network Servers
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 2-12).
• For NetWare in emulation mode, set the bindery context (see page 2-12).
• For NetWare in bindery emulation, set up a file server, print server, and print queue
for the Fiery (see page 2-13).
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.
The functions you perform on the Novell server, the Fiery, and the client workstation
are summarized in the following tables. The first table applies to NDS connections,
and the second to bindery connections. Complete the operations in the left column,
then the centre column, then the right column.

2-12 Setting up Network Servers
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 to connect additional
NetWare servers, you can do so by using bindery emulation. You can connect up to
eight bindery servers to the Fiery.
N OTE : 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.
2
2-13 Fiery on a NetWare network
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 4-7), and verify that the settings reflect the entities you created in the NetWare
administrator utilities (see page 2-10).
N OTE : 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.
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/SPX-compatible 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 colour 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 2-8.
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 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.
2
2-15 Fiery on a NetWare network with NDPS
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 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 W INDOWS NT 4.0/2000/S ERVER 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 C9800 Driver CD, copy the contents of the following folder to the Fiery
directory:
DRIVERS\ENGLISH\NT40\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"

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.
2
2-18 Setting up Network Servers
Tips for experts—UNIX workstations
Setting up the Fiery 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 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.
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.
2
2-19 Fiery on a network with UNIX workstations
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 F IERY 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 F IERY
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.
4. To verify the TCP/IP connection, ping the IP address or the host name. From any
Windows computer on the network, at the MS-DOS 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>
2
2-20 Setting up Network Servers
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 F IERY
•
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.
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).
3
3-1 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.
N OTE : 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 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.
3
3-2 Preparing for Fiery 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 4-6). Reprinting jobs in the Printed
queue requires the job management tools.
N OTE : 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.
N OTE : 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.
N OTE : To download fonts to the Fiery, you must publish the Direct connection.
3
3-3 Levels of access and control
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
N OTE : 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 colour 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.
3
3-4 Preparing for Fiery Setup
WebTools
The Fiery supports Internet or intranet access with WebTools from 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 3-3).
WebTools include Status, WebLink, 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.
WebLink
WebLink provides all users with a link to an address on the Internet. To change the
WebLink Internet address, see 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.
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.
3
3-5 Levels of access and control
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.
N OTE : WebSetup is supported on Windows computers only.
3
3-6 Preparing for Fiery 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 refer to the corresponding number in the following 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,
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. The operator controls all job flow, but jobs sent to the Print queue
may not require operator intervention. There is no access to WebTools.
3
3-7 About Setup
5. An administrator and an operator; operator controls all jobs; no WebTool access
(Maximum control)
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 only to the Hold queue. The administrator and the
operator have complete control of job flow. There is no access to WebTools.

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 4-2) 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.
3
3-8 Preparing for Fiery Setup
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.
N OTE : 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.
N OTE : 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 F IERY 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.
3. Turn on the printer.
Proceed to Fiery Setup, described in Chapter 4.
4
4-1 Fiery Setup from the Control Panel
Chapter 4:
Performing
Setup from
the Control
Panel
Setup is required the first time the printer is turned on after installation or if the hard
disk drive has just been replaced. In this initial Setup, you (or the service technician)
choose the language for Printer Control Panel menus and messages. If you do not
configure a particular Setup option, the Fiery uses default settings. Make sure the
settings are appropriate for the printing environment at your site.
Fiery Setup from the Control Panel
Setup performed from the Control Panel configures the Fiery to communicate with
other devices and manage print jobs sent to it.
Setup provides these groups of options:
• Server Setup to specify system options
• Network Setup to specify all the active network systems that transmit print jobs to
the Fiery
• Parallel Setup to determine if and how the parallel port is used
• USB Setup to determine if and how the USB port is used
• Printer Setup to specify how print jobs and queues are managed
• PS Setup to specify PostScript settings
• PCL Setup to specify PCL settings

• Custom Process to specify special custom colour settings
• Change Password to create and change the administrator password
• Language to select the required language for the display panel and various printed
reports
• Clear Server clears all print jobs from the server
• Factory Defaults restores factory default settings
4
4-2 Performing Setup from the Control Panel
Printer Control Panel
The Control Panel on the front of the printer allows you to set options and view
information about jobs printed to the Fiery.
Use the printer’s Control Panel to view status information, print special pages, and set
up printing. While most elements in the Control Panel display have counterparts in
Command WorkStation, you can view current functions on the Control Panel even
when Command WorkStation is not connected to the server or is not running.
Safety warnings
The printer display window is a liquid crystal display (LCD) made of glass, and it can
break. Do not subject it to strong shocks.
If the display window breaks and the liquid crystal material leaks out, do not inhale,
ingest, or touch it. If the material gets on your skin or clothing, wash it off with soap
and water immediately.

When you perform Network Setup, you configure the Fiery to receive print jobs over
the network systems used at your site.
In the Setup menu, choose Network Setup, to specify network addresses and names to
be used by workstations, servers, and the Fiery when they communicate with each
other.
The Network Setup menu includes three submenus that allow you to choose port
types, protocols, and network services. You must perform Port Setup and enable at
least one port. When multiple ports are enabled, print jobs can be received over all of
those ports at the same time. If the Fiery is configured to enable more than one
protocol, it automatically switches to the correct protocol when it receives a print job.
For each item you enable, you are prompted to enter settings for that item. Default
values, where applicable, appear in this manual with square brackets.
You should display and select options only for the network systems that are currently
used at your site. If your network requirements change, you can change Network Setup
at any time.

RGB Source Profile
EFIRGB/sRGB (PC)/Apple Standard/None [EFIRGB]
The RGB source is the colour space used to control colour for conversion from monitor to printed output. EFIRGB is based on the reference points used in the creation of
the Fiery software. sRGB is based on an average of a large number of PC monitors.
Apple Standard is the standard reference point for Apple’s ColorSync software.
Rendering Style
Photographic/Presentation/Abs. Colorimetric/Rel. Colorimetric [Presentation]
The colour rendering dictionary (CRD) defines how colours are converted from the
RGB colour space to device CMYK. Photographic, designed for images, retains the relative balance between colours to maintain the overall appearance of the image. Presentation, designed for bright colours, produces the saturated prints needed for most
business presentations, but handles photographic images the same way as the Photographic CRD. Absolute Colorimetric provides the closest match to the CMYK device
being simulated, including rendering the paper colour as the background. Relative
Colorimetric provides a close match to the CMYK device being simulated, regardless
of the media used.
CMYK Simulation Profile
SWOP-Coated (EFI)/DIC (EFI)/Euroscale (EFI)/None [SWOP-Coated (EFI) in North
America, Euroscale (EFI) elsewhere]
CMYK simulation allows colour 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.
4
4-45 Colour Setup options
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
Colour 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 colour (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 colour 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.
RGB Separation
Output/Simulation [Output]
This option defines how the Fiery processes RGB jobs. Select Output for RGB jobs
that you print to the final output device. Select Simulation to simulate an output
device that is not the device to which you are printing.
Use Media-Defined Profiles
Yes/No [Yes]
Specify whether to use the Media-Defined Profiles feature. Setting this option to Yes
allows the Fiery to select an Output Profile according to a media type specified for the
job. It also allows multiple output profiles to be applied to a Mixed Media job according to specified media types. Setting this option to No disables the feature, and a profile selected in the Output Profile option or in the ColorWise Pro Tools becomes the
Fiery default Output Profile.
Output Profile
Default profile
Specify the default output profile to use for printing. Additional profiles can be created
and downloaded to the Fiery with ColorWise Pro Tools.

Fiery default Output Profile.
Pure Black Text/Graphics
On/Off [On]
The Pure Black Text/Graphics option optimizes black text and line art. This option
also minimizes toner use for documents consisting of both colour and black-only
pages.
With this option On, black text and line art are printed with black toner only.
With this option Off, black text and line art are printed using all four colours of toner.
For more information, see the Colour Guide.
Black Overprint
Text / Text/Graphics / Off [Text/Graphics]
With this option set to Text or Text/Graphics, black text and graphics overprints on
coloured backgrounds. With this option set to Off, black text and graphics knocks out
colour backgrounds. Generally this option should be Text or Text/Graphics.
Spot Colour Matching
On/Off [On]
With this option On, the Fiery uses an internal lookup table to print the best equivalents of PANTONE colours. With this option Off, PANTONE colours are printed
using the CMYK values defined in the original applications. For more information, see
the Colour Guide.

7-6 Administering the Fiery
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.
N OTE : 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.
7
7-7 Managing address books
The administrator can manage the address books by sending an e-mail to the Fiery
with command codes in the Subject and Message fields. The Fiery responds by e-mail
to these commands with information about each request. When managing address
books, see the following table.

•
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.
•
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.

Shutting down, rebooting, and restarting the C9800
Generally, you can leave the printer running all the time. This section describes how to
reboot, shut down, and restart the system when necessary.
Shutting down and rebooting the printer
You may need to shut down the printer for service, or reboot the entire system. When
you do so, fonts that have been downloaded to the hard disk are not deleted. Print jobs
in the Hold queue, the Printed queue, and jobs that have been processed but not
printed are not deleted; they will be available for printing when you restart the printer.

This chapter provides troubleshooting tips.
Troubleshooting the Fiery
Startup diagnostics are described in the Installation and Service Guide for service
technicians. If you see startup error messages on Command WorkStation or if the Fiery
does not reach the Idle state, contact your authorized service/support provider.
Troubleshooting during Setup from the Control Panel
The following section explains some error and alert messages you may see during Setup
that might not be self-explanatory.
Network Setup messages

This message
Means
Enable AppleTalk
(Network Setup > Protocol
Setup > AppleTalk Setup)
No AppleTalk zone found.
The Ethernet network cable is not attached to the connector on the C9800, or the network cable is not plugged into
the hub or network. If your AppleTalk network has zones,
and you want to specify a zone for the Fiery, you must connect the network cable to the Fiery before performing
AppleTalk Setup.
This could also mean that the AppleTalk network does not
have zones. Zones are not required for printing to the
Fiery. Press Enter to continue.

Novell error code, followed by
a message.
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.
A
A-5 Troubleshooting
In Network Setup, when you configure the IPX (Novell) connection, the Fiery queries
the network for Novell file servers and trees, and attaches to them temporarily. If
a guest login is enabled, it is 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 are 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:
• Your IPX (Novell) network is connected to the Fiery.
• The NetWare server you are trying to access is running.
• The Novell network has been configured with at least one print server and queue for
the Fiery.
• You have the appropriate permissions and login information, including user name
and password, if necessary.
• The Fiery is configured with the correct frame types for communication with the
desired Novell servers.

Runtime error messages
For error messages related to cancelling jobs and printing, including the Disk Full
message and alerts to load media, see “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.
Enter the host name as the Server Name in Fiery Setup.
• Remote printer (internal machine) name. Use one of the following:
print
hold
N OTE : 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.

A-10 Troubleshooting
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
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.
