IBM Program License Agreement
THE DEVICE YOU HAVE PURCHASED CONTAINS ONE OR MORE
SOFTWARE PROGRAMS (“PROGRAMS”) WHICH BELONG TO
INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS MACHINES CORPORATION (“IBM”).
THIS DOCUMENT DEFINES THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS UNDER
WHICH THE SOFTWARE IS BEING LICENSED TO YOU BY IBM. IF
YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS
LICENSE, THEN WITHIN 14 DAYS AFTER YOUR ACQUISITION OF
THE DEVICE YOU MAY RETURN THE DEVICE FOR A FULL
REFUND. IF YOU DO NOT SO RETURN THE DEVICE WITHIN THE 14
DAYS, THEN YOU WILL BE ASSUMED TO HAVE AGREED TO THESE
TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
The Programs are licensed not sold. IBM, or the applicable IBM country
organization, grants you a license for the Programs only in the country
where you acquired the Programs. You obtain no rights other than those
granted you under this license.
The term “Programs” means the original and all whole or partial copies of
it, including modified copies or portions merged into other programs. IBM
retains title to the Programs. IBM owns, or has licensed from the owner,
copyrights in the Programs.
1. License
Under this license, you may use the Programs only with the device on
which they are installed and transfer possession of the Programs and
the device to another party.
If you transfer the Programs, you must transfer a copy of this license and
any other documentation to the other party. Your license is then
terminated. The other party agrees to these terms and conditions by its
first use of the Program.
You may not:
1. use, copy, modify, merge, or transfer copies of the Program except as
provided in this license;
2. reverse assemble or reverse compile the Program; or
3. sublicense, rent, lease, or assign the Program.
2. Limited Warranty
The Programs are provided “AS IS.”
THERE ARE NO OTHER WARRANTIES COVERING THE
PROGRAMS (OR CONDITIONS), EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties, so
the above exclusion may not apply to you.
3. Limitation of Remedies
IBM's entire liability under this license is the following;
For any claim (including fundamental breach), in any form, related in any
way to this license, IBM's liability will be for actual damages only and will
be limited to the greater of:
v
1. the equivalent of U.S. $25,000 in your local currency; or
2. IBM's then generally available license fee for the Program
This limitation will not apply to claims for bodily injury or damages to real
or tangible personal property for which IBM is legally liable.
IBM will not be liable for any lost profits, lost savings, or any incidental
damages or other economic consequential damages, even if IBM, or its
authorized supplier, has been advised of the possibility of such
damages. IBM will not be liable for any damages claimed by you based
on any third party claim. This limitation of remedies also applies to any
developer of Programs supplied to IBM. IBM's and the developer's
limitations of remedies are not cumulative. Such developer is an
intended beneficiary of this Section. Some jurisdictions do not allow
these limitations or exclusions, so they may not apply to you.
4. General
You may terminate your license at any time. IBM may terminate your
license if you fail to comply with the terms and conditions of this license.
In either event, you must destroy all your copies of the Program. You are
responsible for payment of any taxes, including personal property taxes,
resulting from this license. Neither party may bring an action, regardless
of form, more than two years after the cause of action arose. If you
acquired the Program in the United States, this license is governed by
the laws of the State of New York. If you acquired the Program in
Canada, this license is governed by the laws of the Province of Ontario.

around 60 % RH), and avoid the following locations when selecting a site
for the machine.
•
•
•
•
•
Avoid locations near a window or with exposure to direct sunlight.
Avoid locations with vibrations.
Avoid locations with drastic temperature fluctuations.
Avoid locations with direct exposure to hot or cold air.
Avoid poorly ventilated locations.
During printing, some ozone is released, but the amount does not cause
any ill effect to one's health. If, however, the printer is used over a long
period of time in a poorly ventilated room or when printing an extremely
large number of copies, the smell may become unpleasant. To maintain
the appropriate environment for print work, it is suggested that the room
be properly ventilated.

General Guidelines
The machine is designed to print on standard copier paper, but it can
also accept a variety of other types of paper within the limits specified
below.
Note The manufacturer assumes no liability for problems that
occur when paper not satisfying these requirements is used.
Selection of the right paper is important. Using the wrong paper can
result in paper jams, curling, poor print quality, and paper waste, and in
extreme cases can damage the machine. The guidelines given below
will increase the productivity of your office by ensuring efficient, troublefree printing and reducing wear and tear on the machine.
Paper Availability
Most types of paper are compatible with a variety of machines. Paper
intended for xerographic copiers can also be used with the machine.
There are three general grades of paper: economy, standard, and
premium. The most significant difference between grades is the ease
with which they pass through the machine. This is affected by the
smoothness, size, and moisture content of the paper, and the way in
which the paper is cut. The higher the grade of paper you use, the less
risk there will be of paper jams and other problems, and the higher the
level of quality your printed output will reflect.
Differences between paper from different suppliers can also affect the
machine's performance. A high-quality printer cannot produce highquality results when the wrong paper is used. Low-priced paper is not
economical in the long run if it causes printing problems.
Paper in each grade is available in a range of basis weights (defined
later). The traditional standard weights are 60 to 120 g/m2 (16 to 31.9b).
Paper Specifications
The following table summarizes the basic paper specifications. Details

Selecting the Right Paper
This section describes the guidelines for selecting paper.
Condition
Avoid using paper that is bent at the edges, curled, dirty, torn,
embossed, or contaminated with lint, clay, or paper shreds.
Use of paper in these conditions can lead to illegible printing and paper
jams, and can shorten the life of the machine. In particular, avoid using
paper with a surface coating or other surface treatment. Paper should
have as smooth and even a surface as possible.
Composition
Do not use paper that has been surface-treated and contains plastic or
carbon. The heat of fusing can cause such paper to give off harmful
fumes.
Bond paper should contain at least 80% pulp. Not more than 20% of the
total paper content should consist of cotton or other fibers.
Paper Sizes
Cassettes and the MP Tray are available for the paper sizes shown
below. The dimensional tolerances are ±0.7mm for the length and width.
The angle at the corners must be 90° ±0.2°.
MP Tray:

5-13/16 to 8-1/2 × 14 inches))
Note If the length of custom paper is larger than 297mm (11-11/16
inches), the printer can be specified ISO A4, Oficio II, Folio, and
Legal as the standard paper size.

Feeder: 148 × 210 to 216 × 356mm (5-13/16 × 8-5/16 to 8-1/2 × 14
inches))
Note If the length of custom paper is larger than 297mm (11-11/16
inches), the printer can be specified ISO A4, Oficio II, Folio, and
Legal as the standard paper size.
Smoothness
The paper should have a smooth, uncoated surface. Paper with a rough
or sandy surface can cause blank spaces in the printed output. Paper
that is too smooth can cause multiple feeding and fogging problems.
(Fogging is a gray background effect.)
2-4
Paper Handling
Basis Weight
Basis weight is the weight of paper expressed in grams per square meter
(g/m²). Paper that is too heavy or too light may cause feed errors or
paper jams as well as premature wear of the product. Uneven weight of
paper, namely uneven paper thickness may cause multiple-sheet
feeding or print quality problems such as blurring because of poor toner
fusing.
The recommended basis weight is between 60 and 120g/m² (16 to 31.9
lib/ream) for the cassette and between 60 and 220g/m² (16 to 59
lib/ream) for the MP tray.

Thickness
The paper used with the machine should be neither extremely thick nor
extremely thin. If you are having problems with paper jams, multiple
feeds, and faint printing, the paper you are using may be too thin. If you
are having problems with paper jams and blurred printing the paper may
be too thick. The correct thickness is 0.086 to 0.110mm (3.4 to 4.3 mils).
Moisture Content
Moisture content is defined as the percent ratio of moisture to the dry
mass of the paper. Moisture can affect the paper’s appearance, feed
ability, curl, electrostatic properties, and toner fusing characteristics.
Paper Handling
2-5
The moisture content of the paper varies with the relative humidity in the
room. When the relative humidity is high and the paper absorbs
moisture, the paper edges expand, becoming wavy in appearance.
When the relative humidity is low and the paper loses moisture, the
edges shrink and tighten, and print contrast may suffer.
Wavy or tight edges can cause jams and alignment anomalies. The
moisture content of the paper should be 4 to 6%.
To ensure correct moisture content, it is important to store the paper in a
controlled environment. Some tips on moisture control are:
•
•
•
•
•
Store paper in a cool, dry location.
Keep the paper in its wrapping as long as possible. Re-wrap paper
that is not in use.
Store paper in its original carton. Place a pallet etc. under the carton
to separate it from the floor.
After removing paper from storage, let it stand in the same room as
the machine for 48 hours before use.
Avoid leaving paper where it is exposed to heat, sunlight, or damp.
Paper Grain
When paper is manufactured, it is cut into sheets with the grain running
parallel to the length (long grain) or parallel to the width (short grain).
Short grain paper can cause feeding problems in the machine. All paper
used in the machine should be long grain.
Other Paper Properties
Porosity: Indicates the density of paper fiber.
Stiffness: Limp paper may buckle in the machine, resulting in paper
jams.
Curl: Most paper naturally tends to curl one way if left unpacked. When
paper passes through the fixing unit, it curls upward a little. To produce
flat printouts, load the paper so that the upward pressure from the
machine can correct their curling.
Electrostatic discharge: During the printing process the paper is
electrostatically charged to attract the toner. The paper must be able to
release this charge so that printed sheets do not cling together in the
Output Tray.
Whiteness: The contrast of the printed page depends on the whiteness
of the paper. Whiter paper provides a sharper, brighter appearance.
Quality control: Uneven sheet size, corners that are not square, ragged
edges, welded (uncut) sheets, and crushed edges and corners can
cause the machine to malfunction in various ways. A quality paper
supplier should take considerable care to ensure that these problems do
not occur.
Packaging: Paper should be packed in a sturdy carton to protect it from
damage during transport. Quality paper obtained from a reputable
supplier is usually correctly packaged.

Labels
Use paper that is sold specifically for use with copiers or printers (heatfusing type). When using transparencies, labels, envelopes, cardstock,
or thick paper, feed the paper from the MP Tray.
Since the composition and quality of special paper vary considerably,
special paper is more likely than white bond paper to give trouble during
printing. No liability will be assumed if moisture and so forth given off
during printing on special paper causes harm to the machine or operator.
Note Before purchasing any type of special paper, test a sample
on the machine and check that printing quality is satisfactory.
Transparency
This printer is available for monochrome printing on transparencies.
Transparencies must be fed to the MP Tray. One transparency can be
loaded at a time.
Transparencies must be able to withstand the heat of fusing during the
printing process.
Transparencies must be placed on the MP tray with the long edge
towards the printer.
When unloading transparencies (e.g., for clearing jams), hold them
carefully by the edges to avoid leaving fingerprints on them.
Labels
Labels must be fed to the MP tray. One label can be loaded at a time.
Paper Handling
2-7
The basic rule for printing on adhesive labels is that the adhesive must
never come into contact with any part of the machine. Adhesive paper
sticking to the drum or rollers will damage the machine.
Label paper has a structure
comprising of three layers, as
shown in the diagram. The top
Top sheet (white
sheet is printed on. The
bond paper)
adhesive layer consists of
Adhesive
pressure-sensitive adhesives.
Carrier sheet
The carrier sheet (also called
the linear or backing sheet)
holds the labels until used.
Due to the complexity of its
composition, adhesivebacked label paper is particularly likely to give printing problems.
Adhesive label paper must be entirely covered by its top sheet, with no
spaces between the individual labels. Labels with spaces in between are
liable to peel off, causing serious paper jam problems.
Some label paper is manufactured with an extra margin of top sheet
around the edge. Do not remove the extra top sheet from the carrier
sheet until after printing is finished.

Postcards
Up to 10 postcards can be
loaded at a time. Fan the
stack of postcards and align
the edges before loading
them in the MP tray. Make
sure the postcards you are
going to set are not curled.
Feeding curled postcards
may cause paper jams.
2-8
Paper Handling
Some postcards have rough edges on the back (those are created when
the paper is cut). In this case, put the postcards on a flat place and rub
the edges with, for example, a ruler to smooth them.
Envelopes
Up to 5 envelopes can be loaded at a time. Envelopes should be fed in
the face-up position, right edge first.
Since the composition of an envelope is more complex than that of
ordinary paper, it is not always possible to ensure consistent printing
quality over the entire envelope surface.
Normally, envelopes have a diagonal grain direction. Refer to Paper
Grain on page 2-6. This direction can easily cause wrinkles and creases
when envelopes pass through the printer. Before purchasing envelopes,
make a test print to check whether the printer accepts the envelope.
•
•
•
•
Do not use envelopes that have an encapsulated liquid adhesive.
Avoid a long printing session for envelopes only. Extended envelope
printing can cause premature printer wear.
If jams occur, try setting less envelopes on the MP tray.
To avoid jams caused by curled envelopes, stack no more than 10
printed envelopes on the output tray.
Thick Paper
Fan the stack of paper and align the edges before loading them in the
MP tray. Some types of paper have rough edges on the back (those are
created when the paper is cut). In this case, put the paper on a flat place
and rub the edges once or twice with, for example, a ruler to smooth
them. Feeding rough edged paper may cause paper jams.
Note If the paper jams
even after you smooth it
out, load the paper in
the MP tray with the
leading edge raised up
a few millimeters as
shown in the
illustration.
Colored Paper
Colored paper should satisfy the same conditions as white bond paper.
Refer to Paper Specifications on page 2-2. In addition, the pigments
used in the paper must be able to withstand the heat of fusing during the
printing process (up to 200 °C or 392 °F).
Preprinted Paper
Preprinted paper should satisfy the same conditions as white bond
paper. Refer to Paper Specifications on page 2-2.The preprinted ink
must be able to withstand the heat of fusing during the printing process,
and must not be affected by silicone oil.
Do not use paper with any kind of surface treatment, such as the type of
paper commonly used for calendars.
Paper Handling
2-9
Recycled Paper
Select recycled paper that meets the same specifications as the white
bond paper except for whiteness. Refer to Paper Specifications on
page 2-2.
Note Before purchasing recycled paper, test a sample on the
machine and check that the printing quality is satisfactory.
2-10
Paper Handling
Paper Type
The printer is capable of printing under the optimum setting for the type
of paper being used.
Setting the paper type for the paper source from the printer’s operation
panel will cause the printer to automatically select the paper source and
print in the mode best suited to that type of paper.
A different paper type setting can be made for each paper source
including the MP tray. Not only can preset paper types be selected, but it
is also possible for you to define and select customized paper types.

General Information
This chapter describes basic maintenance tasks you can perform for the
printer. You can replace the toner container according to the printer's
display.
Also, the internal parts need periodic cleaning.
Note Information Collection on Memory Chips - The memory chip
attached to the toner container is designed to improve
convenience for the end user; to support the recycling operation of
empty toner containers; and to gather information to support new
product planning and development. The information gathered is
anonymous - it cannot be associated to any specific individual and
the data is intended to be used anonymously.
Toner Container Replacement
The message identifies the toner status at two stages of toner usage.
•
•
When the printer becomes low on toner, the message Toner low is
displayed. Note the replacement is not always necessary at this
stage.
If you ignore the above status and continue printing, the message
Replace toner Clean printer is displayed just before the
toner is used up. The toner container must then be replaced
immediately.
In either case, replace the toner container.
Frequency of Toner Container Replacement
According to ISO/IEC 19798 and EcoPrint switched off the toner
container can print 7.200 pages.
You can print a status page to check how much toner remains in the
toner container. The Toner Gauge in the consumables status section on
the status page shows a progress bar, which roughly represents how
much toner is left in the toner container.
Starter Toner Container
The toner container packed with the new printer is a starter toner
container. The starter toner container lasts an average of 3,600 pages.
Toner Kits
For best results, we recommend that you only use genuine Kyocera
Parts and Supplies.Should any damage be caused by the application of
a toner other than the original Kyocera Mita toner, then this damage is
excluded from the guarantee.
A new toner kit contains the following items:
•
•
•
Toner Container
Plastic waste bag for old toner container

Replacing the Toner Container
This section explains how to replace the toner container.
CAUTION Do not attempt to incinerate the Toner
Container. Dangerous sparks may cause burns.
IMPORTANT During toner container replacement, temporarily move
storage media and computer supplies (such as floppy disks) away
from the toner container. This is to avoid damaging media by the
magnetism of toner.
IMPORTANT Kyocera Mita Corporation is not liable against any
damages or problems arising from the use of toner containers other than
those designated as original Kyocera toner containers. For optimum
performance, it is also recommended to use only the Kyocera toner
containers which are specifically intended for use in your country or
region. If the toner container for another destinations is installed, the
printer will stop printing.
Note You do not have to turn printer power off before starting
the replacement. Any data that may be processing in the printer
will be deleted if you turn the printer power off.

encounter with the printer. We suggest you consult this table to
troubleshoot the problems before calling for service repairs.
Symptom
Check Items
Corrective Actions
Print quality is poor.
–
Refer to Print Quality Problems on page 6-3.
Text is missing on the
Windows test page.
–
This is a problem specific to the Windows OS. It is
not a printer problem. It does not affect print quality.
Paper is jammed.
–
Refer to Clearing Paper Jams on page 6-10.
Nothing lights on the
operation panel even
when power is turned on
and the fan makes no
noise.
Check the power cord is property
plugged into power outlet.
Connect both ends of the power cord securely. Try
replacing the power cord. Refer to Installation Guide
for more information.
Check the power switch is in the
On ( | ) position.
Refer to the Installation Guide for more information.
The printer prints a status
page but data from the
computer is not being
printed.
Check program files and application
software.
Try printing another file or using another print
command. If the problem occurs with a specific file or
application, check the printer settings for that
application.
Check the interface cable.
Connect both ends of the interface cable securely.
Try replacing the printer cable. Refer to the
Installation Guide for more information.
Check if the temperature is low near
the location of the printer, or if the
paper that is being used has been
exposed to humidity.
Depending on the operating environment of the
printer and the condition of the paper, heat
generated during printing can evaporate water
moisture in the printed paper, emitting vapor from the
printer. In this case, printing can be continued
without any problem.
To correct this, increase the temperature in the room,
and use paper that has been stored in a dry place.
Vapor is emitted near the
top tray.

Troubleshooting
If paper jams occur frequently, try using a different type of paper,
replace the paper with paper from another ream, or flip the paper
stack over. The printer may have problems if paper jams recur after
the paper is replaced.
Whether or not the jammed pages are reproduced normally after
printing is resumed, depends on the location of the paper jam.

Binding Modes
Binding refers to the manner in which printed pages of paper are joined
together (by gluing, stitching, etc.) in book form. The two possible types
of binding are: long-edge binding, in which pages are joined together
along their long edge; and short-edge binding, in which they are joined
together along their short edge. In selecting a binding type, you must
also consider the orientation of the printed page. You can use long-edge
or short-edge binding with either landscape or portrait printing.
Depending on the binding type and print orientation, the duplexer
provides four types of binding. These are: (1) portrait, long-edge, (2)
portrait, short edge, (3) landscape, long-edge, and (4) landscape, shortedge. The figure below shows these binding methods.

Network (Network settings)
This printer supports TCP/IP and TCP/IP (IPv6) protocols.
IP is an abbreviation for Internet Protocol. This printer routinely uses the
TCP/IP (IPv4) protocol, but provides a separate setting for the nextgeneration IP, IPv6.
TCP/IP (IPv4) uses 32-bit IP addresses, but the rapid growth in the
number of Internet users has resulted in a shortage of IP addresses.
IPv6 was developed to expand the range of available IP addresses by
using 128-bit IP addresses.
The options available in the Network settings are as follows:

TCP/IP (IPv4 settings)
This selects the settings for TCP/IP (IPv4).
The TCP/IP system refers to the Internet system, which has a 5-layer
structure consisting of the interface layer, link layer, network (IP) layer,
transport (TCP/UDP) layer and application layer.
The interface layer is a key layer in the TCP/IP system that provides an
abstracted interface that is not dependent on the link (communication
line: frame relay or Ethernet, etc.) to the IP module (IP layer). This
means that the IP module can use this abstracted interface (which is not
dependent on the link type) to exchange IP packets back and forth with
the link layer.

DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is the protocol that
assigns the information required to establish a network connection when
a host attempts to connect to the network (Internet). This information
includes the IP address of the local node and the default router (the
router in the host's own network system) and the DNS (Domain Name
System) server. DHCP is an extension of the BOOTP (Bootstrap) startup
protocol.

IP Address (IP address setting)
An IP address is the address of a network device such as a computer
and is included in IP packets as needed for the sending and receiving of
Internet data (IP packets). (IP addresses can be either destination
addresses or source addresses.)
Specifically, an IP address is a bit string consisting of a host address (or
host section) that identifies a computer (host) connected to the Internet
and a network address (or network section) that identifies the network to
which that computer belongs (or more specifically, the computer's
network interface). Bit strings (IP addresses) that are unique throughout
the entire Internet system are allocated to each computer or interface.
The IP addresses currently used on the Internet (IPv4) have a fixed
length of 32 bits.
Note When you enter the IP address, be sure to set the DHCP
setting to Off.

Press [MENU]. The display returns to Ready.
Using the Operation Panel
Subnet Mask (Subnet mask setting)
The subnet mask is a way of augmenting the network address section of
an IP address.
A subnet mask represents all network address sections as 1 and all host
address sections as 0. The number of bits in the prefix indicates the
length of the network address. The term "prefix" refers to something
added to the beginning and, in this context, indicates the first section of
the IP address.
When an IP address is written, the length of the network address can
indicated by the prefix length after a forward slash (/). For example, "24"
in the address "133.210.2.0/24". In this way, "133.210.2.0/24" denotes
the IP address "133.210.2.0" with a 24-bit prefix (network section).
This new network address section (originally part of the host address)
made possible by the subnet mask is referred to as the subnet address.
Note When you enter the subnet mask, be sure to set the DHCP
setting to Off.

Gateway (Gateway setting)
Gateway generally refers to a protocol conversion device used to allow
networks with differing protocol systems to interconnect.
For example, a "Gateway" device is required to connect a different
closed network (using its own protocols) to the open Internet (using
TCP/IP).
By installing a gateway, the communications protocols and data display
modes on different networks can be made compatible.
On TCP/IP networks, the term gateway is used to refer to routers.
Note Before you input the gateway, be sure to set the DHCP
setting to Off.

Bonjour (Bonjour setting)
Bonjour, also known as zero-configuration networking, is a service that
automatically detects computers, devices and services on an IP network.
Bonjour, because an industry-standard IP protocol is used, allows
devices to automatically recognize each other without an IP address
being specified or DNS server being set.
Bonjour also sends and receives network packets by UDP port 5353. If a
firewall is enabled, the user must check that UDP port 5353 is left open
so that Bonjour will run correctly. Some firewalls are set up so as to
reject only certain Bonjour packets. If Bonjour does not run stably, check
the firewall settings and ensure that Bonjour is registered on the
exceptions list and that Bonjour packets are accepted. If you install
Bonjour on Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later, the Windows firewall
will be set up correctly for Bonjour.

information to hosts on the network.
DHCPv6 permits the DHCP server to use its expanded functionality to
send configuration parameters to an IPv6 node. Because the network
addresses that can be used are allocated automatically, the IPv6 node
management workload is reduced in systems where the administrator
has to exercise close control over IP address allocation.

NetWare (NetWare setting)
NetWare is a PC-based network operating system specifically for
servers.
NetWare is a client-server system that operates by installing the
NetWare OS on the server and dedicated client modules (NetWare
clients) on the client machines (running MS-DOS, OS/2, Windows, etc.).
The basic network layer protocol used is NetWare's own IPX
(Internetwork Packet eXchange)/SPX (Sequenced Packet eXchange),
but the system also supports TCP/IP.
The feature of the NetWare OS is that it is specifically for servers, unlike
general-purpose operating systems such as Windows NT and UNIX.
Only the minimum required for server operation can be performed from
the NetWare OS console on the server. Server and file management is
basically carried out using management tools from the clients. Also, all
drivers and protocol stacks are in the form of modules called NetWare
Loadable Modules (NLMs), and the ability of NLMs to load and unload
flexibly and dynamically is a major advantage of this system.
The default setting is On.
Note Check with your network administrator when selecting
network settings.

and an 8-bit node address) that are used to identify devices (computers,
printers, etc.) on the network.
When the power is turned on, a broadcast signal is sent out onto the
network and the addresses and machine names are automatically
assigned.

Note Symmetric-key cryptography, because it uses the same key
for both encryption and decryption, uses the same key in both
directions when encrypted data is exchanged. Accordingly, to
prevent the key from being divulged, key transfer and storage must
be very strictly managed.
The default setting is Off.

Appendix
Glossary
Additional memory
An additional memory (optional) is used for increasing the memory
capacity of this machine. For DIMM that can be used in this machine,
contact your service technician.
AppleTalk
AppleTalk offers file sharing and printer sharing and it also enables you
to utilize application software that is on another computer on the same
AppleTalk network.
Default Gateway
This indicates the device, such as a computer or router, that serves as
the entrance/exit (gateway) for accessing computers outside of the
network that you are on. When no specific gateway is designated for a
destination IP address, data is sent to the host that is designated as the
Default Gateway.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
This is a protocol that automatically resolves the IP address, Subnet
Mask and Gateway address on a TCP/IP network. Use of DHCP
minimizes the load of network administration, especially on network
environments with a large number of client computers where it is not
specifically necessary to assign a separate IP address to each client,
including printers.
dpi (dots per inch)
This indicates the number of dots printed per inch (25.4 mm) as a unit for
expressing resolution.
EcoPrint
This is a printing mode that reduces toner consumption. Pages printed in
the EcoPrint mode are lighter than pages printed in the normal mode.
Emulation
This refers to emulation of other manufacturers' printers. The printer
emulates operation of the following printers: PCL 6, KPDL, KPDL
(AUTO), Line Printer, IBM Proprinter, DIABLO 630 and EPSON LQ-850.
Form Feed Timeout
While data is being sent to a printer, some pauses may occur. At this
time, the printer waits for the next data without making a page break.
Form feed timeout is a function to wait only a preset amount of time
before it executes an automatic page break. After the waiting period
begins, once the designated amount of time is exceeded, the printer will
automatically process the currently received data and print it out. If the
machine has received no print data for the last page, the printer ends
processing of that job without outputting paper.
Glossary-1
IP Address (Internet Protocol Address)
The Internet Protocol address is a unique number that represents a
specific computer in a network. The format of an IP Address is four
numbers separated by dots, e.g. 192.168.110.171. Each number should
be a decimal between 0 and 255.
KPDL
KPDL is Kyocera's implementation of the PostScript page description
language Level3.
MP Tray
This tray is used instead of the cassette when printing on envelopes,
postcards, transparency sheets, and labels.
NetBEUI (NetBIOS Extended User Interface)
An enhanced version of the NetBIOS protocol, it enables the utilization
of more advanced functions on small-scale networks than do other
protocols such as TCP/IP, etc.
Outline font
With outline fonts, character outlines are represented with numerical
expressions and fonts can be enlarged or reduced in different ways by
changing the numeric values of those expressions. Printing remains
clear even if you enlarge fonts, since the characters are defined with
outlines represented with numerical expressions. You can specify the
font size in steps of 0.25 points up to 999.75 points.
PostScript
This is a page description language developed by Adobe Systems, Inc. It
enables flexible font functions and highly-functional graphics, allowing
higher quality printing.
PPM (prints per minute)
This indicates the number of printouts made in one minute.
Printer driver
The printer driver makes it possible for you to print data created using
application software. The printer driver for the printer is contained on the
CD-ROM supplied with the printer. Install the printer driver on the
computer connected to the printer.
Sleep mode
This mode is provided to save power. It is activated when the machine is
not used for a preset period of time. In this mode, power is reduced to
the minimum. The default setting can be changed.
Status page
This lists machine conditions, such as the machine's memory, the total
number of prints and paper source settings. You can print the status
page from the operation panel.
Glossary-2
Subnet Mask
This is a 32-bit numerical value that defines which bits of the IP address
specify the network address and which specify the host address.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol)
TCP/IP is a suite of protocols designed to define the way computers and
other devices communicate with each other over a network.
USB (Universal Serial Bus)
An interface standard for low to middle speed serial interfaces. This
printer supports Hi-Speed USB. The maximum transfer rate is 480 Mbps
and the maximum cable length is 5 meters (16 feet).
