What does Accxes do for you? Accxes is a RIP, Raster Image Processor.
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.

About the Print Drivers
This section of the FreeFlow Accxes document will provide you with the
detailed instructions required to download and install print 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 either on the customer CD entitled
“Accxes Print Drivers”, or they can be downloaded from our Xerox website 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
•
Connecting through a Windows 2000, 2003 or 2008 servers.
•
The first, connecting from your Client, is most commonly used and
therefore more familiar to most users.
The second, connecting to a Windows 2000, 2003 or 2008 server, is done
when your business environment is a networked, shared community. The
server would have all of the drivers installed on it and allow many users to
connect and install the appropriate driver from that server.
Let’s get started with downloading and installing print drivers.

Drivers
Installing Drivers on a Server
A Windows 2000, 2003 or 2008 server system can have all of the drivers
installed locally on it which all of the workstations would require. Each
workstation can then install the appropriate driver from the server to make
remote drivers.
HP-GL/2 Driver
These instructions describe how to install the HP-GL/2 print driver locally on a
workstation or server.
To install a print driver on a workstation from a server, see the section of this
document entitled “Remote Drivers”. The printer driver must be installed on the
server locally first, according to the following instructions.
NOTE: Prior to installing this driver, you must remove all previous
versions by following the removal instructions.
The FreeFlow Accxes HP-GL/2 printer driver is delivered as a self-extracting
zip file. Executing this program will extract the files to a default directory or to a
directory of the user’s choice (e.g. c:\temp). Use Window’s Add Printer Wizard
to add the printer as described below.
NOTE: You must have administrator rights to install the driver and ports.
You can install the HP-GL/2 driver on a standard TCP/IP port from one of the
following settings. If you are going to use Standard TCP/IP Port, install it first,
using the directions in the following Standard TCP/IP Port Installation section.
Then follow the directions to install the HP-GL/driver. The control for Bidirectional is located on the Device Options tab of the Printer Properties.

FreeFlow Accxes Client Tools (ACT) and
the Account Management Tool (AMT)
This chapter will describe the installation of the FreeFlow Accxes Client Tools
(ACT) and the FreeFlow Account Management Tool (AMT) products.
•
The FreeFlow ACT and the AMT software are installed during the same
installation process.
•
The installation can be done from the Accxes Client Tool & Account
Management Tool CD, or from the www.xerox.com website.
•
Go to the latest copy of Release Notes to see additional descriptive
information of the ACT & AMT features beyond what is in this chapter.
•
The ACT-AMT Release Notes can also be found on the Accxes Client Tool
& Account Management Tool CD.
Overview of ACT
The ACT application runs on a Windows Client, MacOSX, Solaris or 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
•

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 V6.0. Beyond V6.0 the function was replaced by an External
Client, such as the FreeFlow Accxes Account Management Tool.
CAUTION: The AMT software should be loaded on only one workstation
that is password protected, with no other applications loaded.
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
Things the AMT application is designed to do:
•
Retrieve job accounting data from multiple printers that use FreeFlow
Accxes firmware (version 7.0 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 datalocated 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.
NOTE: This application replaces the Accounting Tab functionality of the
Client Tools.
CAUTION: The AMT software should be loaded on only one workstation
that is password protected, with no other applications loaded.

Prerequisite to the Installation of Account Management Tool (AMT)
Before installing the Client Tools software, you should make sure that you are
using the TCP/IP protocol at your workstation (WindowsXP/Vista, MacOSX,
Linux and Solaris)
Check the protocols are enabled-as follows:
1. Right click on [My Network Places] (located under My Computer)
NOTE: On Vista it is, [Network].
2. Select [Properties]
NOTE: On Vista it is, [Properties>Manage Network Connection]
3. Right click on [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 Client with the Web Printer

Prerequisite to the Installation of the ACT & AMT
A “clean installation” is required for these software products. This means any
previous versions of the application must first be uninstalled as well as
removing the XES Preferences folder.
NOTE: The XES Preferences folder was created while the ACT & AMT
applications where in use. The uninstaller for ACT & AMT does not remove this
folder automatically.
The following table describes the location of the XES directory by platform.
Type of Platform
Location of XES

Sun Solaris
<home directory>/.XES/Act

Windows 2008/
Vista
C:\USERS\<username>\XES\ACT
NOTE: Removal of the directory will cause 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
data files, they cannot be recovered.
•
Uninstalling the AMT software will not delete the saved database files.
•
Files, images, data, user preferences, etc., created by the user or
application will not be deleted accidentally either.

The Files you backed up need to be copied back into the AMT database folder
if required.
