Accessing Prepress
Portal
What is InSite Prepress Portal?
The Kodak InSite™ Prepress Portal system is a Web portal to the
prepress environment that lets printers and their customers work with
print jobs over the Internet. Prepress Portal helps to manage the
proofing, correction, and approval process so that it is more efficient.
Checking your system configuration
You can check that your system is configured properly to run all
Prepress Portal features successfully. If you run the test after you log
into Prepress Portal, and there are problems, you can send the details to
your system administrator in an e-mail message.
The first time that you use Prepress Portal, check your computer to
ensure compatibility.
1. Open a Web browser, and type the address (URL) of the Prepress
Portal server.
If you do not have the Web address, contact your service provider.
2. On the Login page, click System Diagnostics.
Prepress Portal runs a diagnostic check of your system and displays
a report.
Tip: The System Diagnostics button also appears in the footer of all Prepress
Portal Web pages.
