shipment.
2.
Carefully remove the contents from the box and inspect the items for visible damage.
If you notice shipping damage to any RIP Station component, save the shipping
container in case the carrier needs to see it. Call the carrier immediately to report the
damage and file a claim.
Observe these precautions when handling or using the RIP Station:
• Handle the RIP Station Control Panel with care.
The RIP Station display window is made of glass, with a plastic cover. If the glass
breaks and the liquid crystal inside leaks out, avoid contact with it. If you come in
contact with the liquid crystal, wash it off with soap and water immediately.
• Avoid pressing the surface of the display window.
Applying pressure to the display window will cause it to change color.
• Use a soft cloth moistened with water to clean the surface of the RIP Station display
window.
Other solvents, such as alcohol, may damage the plastic cover on the display
window.
• Never set a cup of coffee, or any liquid, on or near the RIP Station or the printer.

Unpacking and installing the RIP Station
Preparing the site
Installing the RIP Station takes about one hour if the site is properly prepared.
TO
PREPARE THE INSTALLATION SITE :
1.
Check the electrical source.
Locate the grounded electrical outlet that will supply power to the RIP Station. Make
sure the outlet has a surge suppressor.
• Do not use a 3-prong adapter in a 2-hole ungrounded outlet.
• Do not plug the RIP Station into a circuit with heating, air conditioning, or
refrigeration equipment (including water coolers).
• Do not plug the RIP Station into a switchable wall outlet. This can result in the
RIP Station being turned off accidentally.
2.
Check the intended location.
Make sure there is enough room for the RIP Station.
3.
Test printer functionality before installing the RIP Station.
Run a printer check to test the printer. Then align the print head. See Chapter 1 of
your Printer Guide for more information.
9
4.
Preparing the site
Check the network.
Verify that the network is functioning before you attach the RIP Station. In order to
minimize equipment downtime and any impact on the network, make sure your
network administrator installs a network connector for the RIP Station and confirms
network functionality with the connector in place before you begin.
See the computer and network requirements on page xii.
5.
Make sure you have a networked computer available during the installation.
The appropriate software should already be installed. Documentation for the
networked computer and the network operating software should be available.
6.
Make sure you have the following cables:
• Printer interface cable—provides the interface between the RIP Station and the
printer.
• Parallel cable—not included and required only if you intend to connect a PC-based
server to the parallel connector on the RIP Station. This cable must be used with the
parallel converter cable provided with the RIP Station.
N OTE : This section covers hardware installation. It provides general information on
connecting the RIP Station to a network. For network setup and configuration, see the
Administrator Guide.

Unpacking and installing the RIP Station
Connecting the RIP Station to the network
Ethernet support is built into the RIP Station motherboard, providing connectivity to
Ethernet networks. Supported Ethernet cabling includes thinnet, thicknet, and twisted
pair.
The RIP Station also features a high-speed parallel port that enables it to be connected
directly to the parallel port of a PC-compatible or a Novell server.
Ethernet network connections
The motherboard of the RIP Station has two external Ethernet network connectors: an
AUI (Attachment Unit Interface) connector for a thin Ethernet cable (thinnet) or a
thick Ethernet cable (thicknet), as well as a 10/100BaseT connector for twisted pair.
Only one Ethernet connection is allowed to the RIP Station at a time. The RIP Station
automatically determines which connector is being used. For network configuration
information, see the Administrator Guide.
AUI connector for thinnet or thicknet
RJ-45 connector for 10/100BaseT
Only one Ethernet connection at a time is allowed.
Thinnet (thin coaxial Ethernet cable or 10Base2) connections require an external
transceiver attached directly to the AUI connector on the back of the RIP Station.
Thicknet (thick coaxial Ethernet cable or 10Base5) connections require an external
transceiver with an AUI drop cable connected to the AUI connector on the back of the
RIP Station.
15
TO
Connecting the RIP Station to the network

2.
With the AUI slide latch in the up position, connect the network cable to the AUI
connector on the back of the RIP Station. Slide the latch down to lock the connector in
place.
• To connect a thinnet cable to the RIP Station, an AUI to BNC external transceiver
must be installed on the RIP Station AUI connector. The thinnet cable then
connects to the BNC connector on the external transceiver.
• To connect a thicknet cable to the RIP Station, connect the AUI drop cable directly
to the AUI connector on the back of the RIP Station.
N OTE : If you turn on the RIP Station without connecting the network cable to the
transceiver, it may hang during startup. Make sure the network cable is connected to
the transceiver before you turn on the RIP Station.
3.
Configure Setup options.
See the Administrator Guide.
4.
After configuring Setup options, verify the network connection.
Once the network connection has been made, the RIP Station has the correct setup
configuration and has reached Idle, it should be available on the network.
If necessary, the network administrator should perform any additional network setup,
verify the network connection, verify that the RIP Station appears on the list of
printers, and print a few test files from a networked computer that will use the
RIP Station. (See the Administrator Guide for more information.)
Twisted pair (unshielded twisted pair cable or 10/100BaseT) uses an 8-pin, RJ-45

Connecting parallel port devices to the RIP Station
The parallel connector on the back of the RIP Station provides a high-speed interface
port that allows the it to connect directly to the parallel port of a PC-based server (such
as a Novell server). Although a number of PC-based devices may be connected to the
RIP Station for parallel printing, the procedure for connecting each of these device
types is relatively similar.
The RIP Station connects to the parallel port of a PC-based server through the parallel
cable (not provided with the RIP Station). The converter cable must be connected to
the parallel connector on the back of the RIP Station before connecting a parallel
cable.

Installing user
software on a
Windows
computer
Installation overview
This chapter describes installing software and setting up printing from a Windows
computer running Windows 95, Windows 3.1x, Windows NT 4.0, or 3.51.
Installation overview
The general steps for installing the RIP Station user software are:
• Install the Adobe PostScript printer driver (available for Windows 3.1x and
Windows 95 only).
• Set up the printer driver to communicate with the RIP Station.
• Install the utilities: Fiery Downloader, Fiery Spooler, and Fiery Print Calibrator.
N OTE : The utilities are not available for Windows 3.1x.
• Configure the Chooser list (NET_WSCK.INI file) for the utilities.
• Install color management profiles (available for Windows 95 only).
• Copy color reference files from the User Software CD.
• Move the PostScript printer description files for applications to the appropriate
location.
The full set of user software is provided on the User Software CD, but the installer for
the printer drivers and printer files can also be downloaded from the RIP Station with
the WebTools Installer (if the site administrator has enabled Internet access to the
server). Once you download the installer, the installation process is identical to
installing from the User Software CD. For more information, see “Using the WebTools
Installer” on page 70.
20
Installing user software on a Windows computer
Preparing for RIP Station printer setup
To set up the RIP Station as a PostScript printer, you must install a PostScript printer
driver and the appropriate printer description files for your RIP Station.
• For PostScript with Windows 3.1x or Windows 95, use the corresponding Adobe
PostScript printer driver provided on the RIP Station User Software CD.
• For PostScript with Windows NT 4.0, use the standard Windows printer driver
(PSCRIPT.DRV) that came with your Windows system software. For Windows
NT 3.51, this driver supports only PostScript Level 1 and therefore not all
RIP Station features are available. For Windows NT 4.0, this driver does support the
RIP Station features.
If you are printing through a Novell server, the Novell network and file server should
be set up. The file server should be configured with a print server and print queue for
the printer. For details see your NetWare documentation and the Administrator Guide.
The following procedures are specific to your version of Windows.
Setting up printing with Windows 95
You can print from your Windows 95 computer in the following ways:
• Via the parallel port connection
• Via an IPX (Novell) network
• Without a Novell server, via IPX/SPX from the Fiery utilities, but not from other
applications
You perform a general installation of the PostScript printer driver included on the User
Software CD. This means that you select a local printer on LPT1. After you have
installed the driver, you modify the port connection, depending on how the printer is
connected to your computer. There is no need to print a test page until after you have
finished the configuration.

Installing user software on a Windows computer
Completing the Windows 95 parallel port connection
Preparing a parallel port connection for Windows 95 requires specific BIOS settings
on your computer, and specific port and printer settings for Windows 95. In addition,
a change to the RIP Station Setup may be required if you choose to spool files to the
RIP Station rather than print directly.
TO
PREPARE THE
RIP S TATION
AND YOUR COMPUTER FOR
PARALLEL PORT PRINTING :
1.
Connect the RIP Station to the parallel port on your computer.
For instructions, see the Administrator Guide.
2.
To spool files to the RIP Station, set the RIP Station Setup option for Port Timeout to
10 seconds.
The default setting for this option is 5 seconds, which is not adequate for spooling.
Setting this option to 10 seconds ensures that spooling is not interrupted due to
timeout. The Port Timeout in Seconds option is accessed from the Network Setup
section of Setup. You can change this Setup option from the Control Panel or from the
Command WorkStation. An Administrator password may be required to access Setup.
For instructions, see the Administrator Guide.
To print directly to the printer, you can use the default setting of 5 seconds.
3.
In your computer’s BIOS settings, set Parallel Port Mode to Compatible.
To access the BIOS settings, restart the computer and press the key indicated on your
monitor as soon as the computer starts up. You may have to scroll through several
screens to reach the parallel port settings. After setting the Parallel Port Mode to
Compatible, save your changed setting and exit.

Installing user software on a Windows computer
Setting up printing with Windows NT 4.0
Before you can set up PostScript printing for Windows NT 4.0, you need to install the
Windows NT PostScript printer driver. The following procedures describe how to
install the PostScript Printer Description file (PPD) for your printer and how to
configure printing for your network type. The printer files provided on the User
Software CD support the Intel version of Windows NT.
There is more than one possible sequence of steps in installing the same printer. To
avoid presenting an excessively branching procedure, we suggest that you install the
RIP Station as a local parallel port printer first, and add the network port connection
after the driver installation.
Adding a printer to a local system requires that you log in to your local Windows NT
workstation (not the network server domain) and that you are a member of the
Administrators group for your workstation.
If your Windows NT computer is a client on a network, and you want to print to a
shared printer, find out the name of the server on which the printer is defined.

Setting up printing with Windows NT 3.51
To set up Windows NT 3.51 printing, install the Windows NT PostScript printer
driver and configure printing for your network type. Note that printer files support the
Intel version of Windows NT.
There is more than one possible sequence of steps in installing the same printer. To
avoid presenting an excessively branching procedure, we suggest that you install the
RIP Station as a local parallel port printer first, and add the network port connection
after the driver installation. If you prefer, you can install the network port first and the
driver later.
Adding a printer to a local system requires that you log in to your local Windows NT
workstation (not the network server domain) and that you are a member of the
Administrators group for your workstation.
If your Windows NT computer is a client on a network, and you want to print to a
shared printer, find out the name of the server on which the printer is defined.

For more information on using these files, see the User Guide.
Copying printer description files
Installing the printer driver and printer description files as described in the previous
sections should be sufficient for obtaining the files you need for printing. However,
some applications such as PageMaker do not support automatic installation of printer
description files from the Printers Control Panel or the Adobe Driver Setup. To make
the RIP Station available in the Print and Page Setup dialog boxes of these
applications, copy printer description files from the User Software CD to the
appropriate location.
If you operate the RIP Station in a copy shop, quick print shop, or service bureau, you
might want to provide copies of the printer description files to customers. This ensures
that jobs they create and print to files are properly formatted for printing to the
RIP Station.
TO

Installing user
software on a
Mac OS
computer
Setting up the RIP Station as a PostScript printer
The general steps for installing the RIP Station user software from the User Software
CD and setting up printing from a Mac OS computer are:
• Install the Adobe PostScript printer driver.
• Set up the RIP Station in the Chooser.
• Install the utilities (Fiery Downloader, Fiery Spooler, and Fiery Print Calibrator) and
screen fonts.
• Install ColorSync Profiles if your system uses ColorSync.
• Copy color reference files from the User Software CD.
The full set of user software is provided on the User Software CD, but the installer for
the printer drivers and printer files can be downloaded from the RIP Station with the
WebTools Installer (if the site administrator has enabled Internet access to the server).
Once you download the installer, the installation process is identical to installing from
the User Software CD. For more information, see “Using the WebTools Installer” on
page 70.
N OTE : The ColorSync Profiles Installer is not available from the WebTools Installer. If
you need to install ColorSync profiles, you must use the User Software CD.
Setting up the RIP Station as a PostScript printer
To set up the RIP Station as a PostScript printer, you must install the Adobe PostScript
Printer Driver and the PostScript Printer Description (PPD) file that corresponds to
your printer. The PostScript printer driver and PPD file are provided on the User
Software CD.
Printer drivers provide a way to communicate information on print jobs between your
applications, the RIP Station, and any other PostScript printer connected to your
computer.
Save any documents in open applications because the installer will restart your
computer after installation is complete.

Installing color reference files
The PANTONE folder contains:
• PANTONE RGB tables—Text files that indicate the closest RGB equivalents of the
PANTONE coated and uncoated colors for your printer model. You can open these
files with a word-processing program such as Microsoft Word or SimpleText. Files
ending in .CT are for PANTONE colors on coated media; files ending in .UT are
for uncoated media.
For more information on using these files, see the User Guide.
Understanding filenames
Filenames for ColorSync profiles and PANTONE tables contain abbreviations that
indicate specific media and resolution combinations. Example of such filenames are
Fiery Stylus Pro 5000 PGP7 ICC and Fiery Stylus Pro 5000 PGP7.CT. The following
table describes these abbreviations.

Using the WebTools Installer
Under the name of your operating system, click “Printer Files”.
For Windows computers, a dialog box appears, prompting you to save the file
“Prntdrve.exe” to the location you choose.
For Mac OS computers, a folder named “Printer Driver” is downloaded to the desktop
in a BinHex-encoded, compressed format. If your internet browser is equipped with an
expander utility such as StuffIt Expander™, the folder will be decoded and
decompressed automatically.
4.
For Windows computers, browse to the location where you want to save the
Prntdrve.exe file and click Save.
For Mac OS computers, if the Printer Driver folder was not automatically decoded and
decompressed, launch a utility that will perform that function.
5.
For Windows computers, double-click the Prntdrve.exe file, browse to the location
where you want to install the Prnt_drv folder, and click Next.

If you are using Windows 95, make sure that IPX/SPX and TCP/IP networking protocols
are both enabled.
See “Completing the Windows 95 IPX (Novell) connection” on page 27 for
information.
•
Make sure that either the NET_WIPX.DLL (Windows 95) or NET_WSCK.DLL
(Windows NT) file is in the SYSTEM folder.
Make sure that only one file is installed in this folder and that it is the correct file for
your system.
•
Make sure that the NET_WSCK.INI file is in the WINDOWS folder.
Mac OS computers
Installing the Mac OS PostScript printer driver
