Introduction

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 printer drivers, processes the request, and then sends the information to the printer.

About the Printer Drivers

2

This section of the FreeFlow Accxes document provides you with the detailed instructions required to download and install printer drivers, set up ports, add the Wide Format printer to your client workstation (namely your personal computer) and send a test print.

You can find the driver installation files on the Driver Software or the Xerox web site at

www.xerox.com

.

Getting Started

There are two options offered to you for connecting to a printer prior to submitting your job. They are:

• Connecting from a Client (Windows 7, XP, Vista, 2003, 2008): This is most commonly used and therefore more familiar to most users.

• Connecting through a Windows 2003 or 2008 server: This is done when your business environment is a networked, shared community. The server has all of the drivers and allows many users to connect and install the appropriate driver from that server.

Drivers

Installing Drivers Locally on a Server or Client

A Windows 2003 or 2008 server system can have all of the drivers that the workstations require installed locally on the server. Each workstation can then install the appropriate driver from the server to make remote drivers.

These instructions describe how to install the printer driver locally on a workstation or server.

To install a printer driver on a workstation from a server, see Installing Remote Drivers on a Client in this document. The printer driver must be installed on the server locally first, according to the following instructions.

About the Printer Drivers

NOTE

Deleting the Microsoft XPS Document Writer Printer could hang WF Printer Drivers and cause printing problems with all Wide Format printers.

The FreeFlow Accxes printer driver is delivered on your Driver Software CD or can be downloaded from www.xerox.com as a self-extracting zip file. Executing this program extracts the files to a default directory or to a directory of the user’s choice, such as c:\temp).

NOTE

You must have administrator rights to install the driver and ports.

NOTE

Changes to the Enable Advanced Printing Feature checkbox are shared between

Clients and Remote Printers. Therefore, all clients and remote printers sharing the driver from that server inherit the advanced printing settings.

HP-GL/2 or PostScript Driver Installation

1. Insert the CD.

2. Double-click the Drivers folder.

3. Double-click the XFAInstaller.exe.

The Xerox Wide Format Printer Driver Installer displays.

4. Select Next.

5. Enter a Driver Language.

6. Enter the Printer Name or IP Address or select the existing Printer Port..

7. Select Next.

8. Select HP-GL/2 or PostScript driver.

NOTE

The FreeFlow Accxes PostScript feature needs to be installed on the controller before the PostScript driver can be used.

9. Select Use Default Printer Name or Specify a Printer Name and enter a <name>.

Select Next.

The Ready to install page opens.

10. Select Finish to complete the driver installation.

The Copying files screen displays.

11. The Installation Completed Successfully message displays.

12. Select Done.

Installing Remote Drivers on a Client

If you are not installing drivers locally on a client, install them from a server.

NOTE

Remove previously installed drivers manually before proceeding.

1. Go to the Printers folder.

This chapter describes the installation of the FreeFlow Accxes Client Tools and the

FreeFlow Account Management Tool products.

• The FreeFlow ACT and the AMT software are installed during the same installation process.

• The installation can be done from the Accxes Client Tools and Account Management

Tool CD, or from the www.xerox.com website.

• Go to the latest copy of the Xerox FreeFlow Accxes Print Server Customer Release

Notes for your product to see additional descriptive information of the ACT and AMT features beyond what is in this chapter. The Xerox FreeFlow Accxes Print Server

Customer Release Notes can be found on the Accxes Client Tools and Account

Management Tool CD.

Overview of ACT

The ACT application runs on a Windows Client, MacOS X, Solaris or GNU/Linux workstation.

ACT enables users to:

• Send print jobs from their client

• Retrieve scanned files from over the network

• Save images

• Create document sets from single documents

• View the printer queue from your client

• Cancel submitted jobs

• View Scan Directory

FreeFlow Accxes Client Tools and Account Management Tool

• Temporarily change printer settings

NOTE

Selections made in the Client Tools temporarily override the default settings of the

FreeFlow Accxes Wide Format printers.

Each Client Tool is on a separate tab:

• Document Submit

• Printer Queue

• Accounting (Legacy)

• Document Retrieve

• Device Manager

NOTE

The Accounting tab listed above is functional only for software version up to 6.2.

Beyond 6.2 the function was replaced by an external client, such as the FreeFlow

Accxes Account Management Tool.

NOTE

After the installation is complete, go to the Overview and Quick Start Help files to get started using the software.

Overview of the Account Management

Tool

The AMT application is designed to:

• Retrieve job accounting data from multiple printers that use FreeFlow Accxes firmware

(version 6.2 or greater).

• The AMT Administrator can submit an AMT command to each printer to retrieve a copy of the media usage data and scanner usage data-located in the job log file on the printer’s controller.

• Identify the data retrieved by Printer ID, Account ID and User ID.

• The AMT then sends a command to each printer to purge the original data.

CAUTION

The AMT software should be loaded on only one workstation that is password protected.

On Windows 7 it is, [Start > Control Panel > View Network Status and tasks >

Local area connection > Properties]

NOTE

On Vista it is, [Start > Settings > Network Connections].

2. Select [Properties].

3. Right-click [Local Area Connection].

4. Select [Properties].

5. Ensure Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is checked.

Configure Your Printer Network

Connections

At either the printer User Interface (UI), or on the Web Printer Management Tool, check that the NetMask, IP address and Gateway settings are correct. These are needed so that your workstation is able to communicate with your FreeFlow Accxes compliant scanner and printer.

On the Web Printer Management Tool

Select Configuration > Network.

On the 6204 Printer User Interface

1. Select Menu > Setup > Network Settings > TCP/IP.

2. Enter the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway, and select Save.

On the 7142 Operator Panel

Select the menu key followed by the BACK or NEXT keys to the Network Setup option.

Prerequisite to the Installation of the

ACT and AMT

A clean installation using the Control Panel Add or Remove Programs function is required for these software products.

NOTE

The XES Preferences folder was created while the ACT and AMT applications were in use. The uninstaller for ACT and AMT does not remove this folder automatically.

This is not necessary if you are performing a reinstallation of your software, but if you are not going to run the software on a system anymore or if you are deleting the preferences and scanned images to save space, delete the XES Preferences directory.

The following table describes the location of the XES Preferences directory by platform, if ACT and AMT were previously installed.

<home directory>/.XES/ACT

<home directory>/.XES/ACT

<home directory>/.XES/ACT

C:\USERS\<username>\XES\ACT

Removal of the directory results in the loss of all ACT user device settings.

CAUTION

It is important to do a manual backup of the AMT database files on a regular basis.

If you accidentally corrupt or delete the saved files, they cannot be recovered. The files you back up need to be copied back into the AMT database folder if required.

Uninstalling the AMT software does not delete the saved database files. Files, images, data, user preferences, etc., created by the user or application are not deleted accidentally.

Refer to the Xerox FreeFlow Accxes Print Server Customer Release Notes on www.xerox.com for the Vista location of database files.

Finishing Setup

This chapter describes how to connect the FreeFlow Accxes Client Tools to a Finisher product.

Check the following to prepare to set up finishing functions:

• The printer, controller, and client need to be on the same network and must be powered on.

• The FreeFlow Accxes Client Tools needs to be installed.

• The finisher must be connected to the printer and powered on so that the executable file can access the finisher to create the correct XES.FIN file.

1. Launch www.xerox.com in your browser.
