Xerox FreeFlow Accxes Print Server and Web Printer Management Tool
Setup Guide
Introduction
1
The purpose of this guide is to provide experienced System Administrators with the
required information for setting up a Xerox Wide Format Printer within a variety of
network environments.
®
FreeFlow Accxes® Version 15.0 supports the following printers:
• 6204®
• 6279®
• 6604/6605 Solution™
• 6622 Solution™
• 7142
Although not all tasks are required for setup within every network environment, the
typical communications setup tasks include:
• Installing the print drivers
• Setting up the remote printer, including changing the password and setting the printer
defaults in the Web Printer Management Tool
• Printing a printer configuration test print.
• Installing the Accxes Client Tools (ACT) on user workstations, which enables users to
send print jobs that can override the default printer settings.
• Installing the Account Management Tool (AMT) on one workstation, from which
media usage data and scanner usage data are retrieved from the printers controller.

Introduction
System Requirements
There are several important system requirements for setting up network printing,
including:
• A working knowledge of your network operating environment
• A workstation with the appropriate operating system software installed
• The proper TCP/IP protocol settings configured for network connectivity
• Network cabling that is compliant with Ethernet specifications for the environment
in which the printer is installed
Small Networks
For small networks consisting of several network-connected devices/workstations and a
single hub, it is necessary to set up the printer with an individual IP Address and a Subnet
Mask. The Subnet Mask must match all the other local area network-connected
workstations in use. Unless a router (Gateway) is being used to gain access to the larger
wide area network, a default Gateway address is not needed.
Larger Networks
For Larger Networks consisting of many network-connected devices/workstations, with
multiple hubs and routers, it is mandatory to set up the printer with an individual IP
Address and Subnet Mask. The Subnet Mask must match the subnet that the printer is
on. The Gateway address is the router address that the printer uses to gain access to
the larger, wide area network.
NOTE
The IP address and Subnet Mask can be setup automatically using the Dynamic
Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). This is accomplished once the network
connection is configured via DHCP. Refer to Chapter 2 in this guide for details.
Prerequisite Knowledge

Prerequisite Knowledge
What does Accxes do for you? Accxes is a Raster Image Processor (RIP). Accxes receives
requests from various sources, including a client, using one of our print drivers, processes
the request, and then sends the information to the printer.
Web Printer Management Tool Overview
As part of the FreeFlow Accxes firmware, the Web Printer Management Tool is accessed
from your workstation using any of the following web browser software:
• Internet Explorer 8.0 (minimum or greater is required)
• Mozilla Firefox 3.6 (minimum or greater is required)
• Apple Safari 5.0 (minimum or greater is required)
• Google Chrome 5.0 (minimum or greater is required)
Later versions of the above software releases are applicable as well.
The instructions provided are specifically written for the most commonly used Windows
Internet Explorer browser and differ if you are using another browser software. It is
assumed that System Administrators have a basic knowledge of their browser software.
The Web Printer Management Tool enables three major functions:
• Print job management and job status tracking
• Remote control over the printer default settings
• A method to enable job accounting for printed, copied, and scanned jobs. A System
Administrator can track media usage data and save it to the FreeFlow Accxes controller
job log file. The data is then retrievable via an external account server, such as the
Account Management Tool (AMT).
