CONNECTING THE MACHINE
CONNECTING TO A NETWORK
To connect the machine to a network, connect the LAN cable to the machine's
network connector. Use a shielded LAN cable.
After connecting the machine to a network, be sure to configure the IP address
and other network settings before installing the software. (The factory default
setting for the IP address is to receive the IP address automatically when the
machine is used in a DHCP environment.)
Network settings can be configured using "Network Settings" in the system
settings (administrator) on the machine.
• If the machine is used in a DHCP environment, the IP address of the machine may
change. If this happens, printing will not be possible. This problem can be avoided by
using a WINS server or by assigning a permanent IP address to the machine.
• This manual explains how to set up the software in a Windows network
environment and in a Macintosh network environment.
X Checking the IP address of the machine
You can check the IP address by pressing the [SYSTEM SETTINGS] key on the
machine and printing out the "All Custom Setting List" from [List Print (User)].
CONNECTING THE MACHINE WITH A USB
CABLE (Windows)
The machine can be connected to a computer using a USB cable if the
computer is a Windows computer. (The USB interface on the machine cannot
be used in a Macintosh environment.)
The machine and computer should be connected while the printer driver is
being installed. If a USB cable is connected before the printer driver is installed,
the printer driver will not be installed correctly. For the procedure for connecting
a USB cable, see "WHEN THE MACHINE WILL BE CONNECTED WITH A
USB CABLE" (page 21).

printer driver on the client computers.
• Ask your network administrator for the server name and printer name of the
machine on the network.
• For the procedure for configuring settings on the print server, see the
operation manual or the Help file of the operating system. The "print server"
explained here is a computer that is connected directly to the machine, and
"clients" are other computers connected to the same network as the print
server.
• Install the same printer driver on client computers as the printer driver that is
installed on the print server.
• If the PPD driver is installed on the print server and the client computers are
running Windows 98/Me/NT 4.0, see "USING THE STANDARD WINDOWS
