Automatic System Software Update
The auto-installer will locate and download the file containing the system
software to the printer, if it is present on the Software Utilities CD-ROM.
Attention
Operator intervention is required to prevent the system software
update.
If you are attempting to download previous versions of code, an error page
will print stating “Low Release Level.” This will prevent older versions of
system software from being downloaded over newer versions.
The system software update will abort without operator intervention if the
system software on the CD-ROM is the same as, or older than, the one
currently installed on the printer controller.
Regional Settings/Options (Windows)
When you insert the Software Utilities
CD-ROM (that ships with your printer)
into your PC’s CD-ROM drive, it checks
your PC’s Regional Settings/Options
and automatically starts up in the
language that is set (if this language is
supported). You may change the

The PCL drivers support the same networks and connectivity
that the PostScript drivers do; however, on the Device Options
tab in the PCL5 9x driver, the only selectable option is Printer
Memory. The Printer Memory drop-down box allows you to
specify the amount of memory installed in the printer.
Some PCL drivers display both options you do have and those
you don’t have access to. For example, if you select duplex
printing, but you don’t have an optional duplexer attached to
your printer, the file will still print, but it will print simplex.
If the PCL6 driver does not provide the desired output, use the

Windows—Ethernet TCP/IP
Detailed instructions for configuring TCP/IP can be found in the CrownBooks
(in PDF on the Documentation CD-ROM).
DHCP Installation

If you use DHCP to install TCP/IP, you must enable DHCP/WINS in
Administration/Communications/Optional NIC/CrownNet/TCPIP
printer configuration menu. See your network administrator and your
CrownBooks on your Documentation CD-ROM for further information.
Manual TCP/IP Installation

Connect your printer to the network with an Ethernet cable.
If necessary, in the Administration/Communications/Optional NIC/
CrownNet/TCPIP/Internet Address menu, enter the printer’s Internet
address.
The factory default Internet address is 161.33.128.24. If necessary, in the
Administration/Communications/Optional NIC/CrownNet/TCPIP/Default
Router menu, enter the Internet address.
The factory default router address is 000.000.000.000. This setting
provides automatic sensing of gateways. If you identify a subnet mask,
automatic sensing is disabled.

If you want to refer to the printer by host name instead of IP address, edit
the system host table by adding the following line to the host file:
internetaddress hostname
where internetaddress is the Internet address of the printer
(Administration/Communications/Optional NIC/CrownNet/TCPIP/Internet
Address menu), and hostname is the descriptive name of the printer. This
requires administrator privileges on your network. Contact your system
administrator.

„ We use screen shots taken from a Macintosh OS 9 platform. The
procedure is similar to other Macintosh OS platforms.
„ The current version of Macintosh OS X has limited support for PPD
(PostScript Printer Definition) files. Although MINOLTA-QMS printers can
be used with OS X, not all advanced printing features will be available.
Advanced printing features are still available under OS 9.1, or when
printing from the Classic Environment in OS X. To obtain the

Macintosh—EtherTalk Interface Configuration
This section briefly describes the configuration procedure for the printer
interface. You can make these configuration changes through any of the
following means:
„ Printer control panel
„ Print Utility for Macintosh
„ Remote Console
„ CrownView
When your printer boots up, it finds a default zone. If your network has more
than one zone, use the Administration/Communications/Optional NIC/
CrownNet/EtherTalk/Zone Name/Zone Part 1 and Zone Part 2 menus to enter
the name of the zone to which the printer is attached if you want it to appear
in a zone different than the one it shows in.
5"
The two Zone Part x menus allow you to identify 1 zone with a name
up to 32 characters long. (Up to 16 characters can be entered in each
of the two menus). You cannot use these two menus to identify two
zones. Trailing spaces are not considered part of the zone name. All
standard printable ASCII characters are valid except the @ and '
symbols. The names are case sensitive.
Macintosh—PPDs
MINOLTA-QMS develops a PostScript Printer Description (PPD) file for every
printer it produces for the Macintosh. The Macintosh Operating System
includes a PostScript printer driver (LaserWriter) that uses this PPD to
provide support for features such as input bins, and media sizes.
