Printer Features
This brief overview will acquaint you with your printer’s major features
and how they can benefit you. Specific chapters throughout the three
volumes of the user’s guide (this manual, the Operation manual, and
the Reference manual) contain more information on each feature.
Consult the index or the table of contents in each manual for guidance in locating this information.
Media Flexibility
The printer supports print media in five different sizes (legal, letter,
executive, A4, B5 ISO) in both portrait and landscape orientations. It
also supports envelopes, postcards, and other custom print media.
User Benefit—You have the option of printing on a variety of standard and non-standard media sizes in both portrait and landscape orientations, as well as printing on envelopes, postcards, and other
custom print media.
Toner Savings
The printer provides toner savings with the Conserve Toner option.
User Benefit—A choice of printing modes allows you to lower printing costs by reducing the amount of toner on the printed page when
printing draft copies of documents.
1-14
QMS 1060 Print System Getting Started
Printer
Features
Multiple Resolutions
Two printer resolutions are available: 300x300 and 600x600 dots per
inch.
»
Note: With the standard 8 MB of RAM on the QMS 1060 printer
300x300 dpi is available for all media sizes and 600x600 dpi is
available for all media sizes except legal which requires additional
memory.
User Benefit—A choice of print resolutions allows you to customize
the quality of your output according to its use: 300x300 dpi for most
hardcopy needs or 600x600 dpi for camera-ready output (depending
on your application and requirements).
Four Resident Emulations
Your printer supports printing in HP PCL 5, HP-GL, Lineprinter, and
PostScript emulations.
User Benefit—Most applications can print directly to the printer.
HP PCL 5 Emulation
The printer simultaneously emulates the Hewlett-Packard LaserJet
IIISi and the HP PaintJet XL300 Color Printer (the output is grayscaled on your QMS 1060 Print System). These printers are emulated at both 300x300 dpi (bitmap and scalable fonts) and 600x600
dpi (scalable fonts only).
»
Note: Using 600x600 dpi resolution with the legal media size requires
additional memory. Only 300x300 dpi resolution is available for HPGL/2.
HP-GL Emulation
The printer provides HP-GL plotter emulation (7470A, 7475A, 7550A,
and ColorPro) at 300x300 dpi and 600x600 dpi.
»
Note: Using 600x600 dpi resolution with the legal media size requires
additional memory.
Introduction
1-15
Printer
Features
Lineprinter Emulation
The Lineprinter emulation prints simple, unformatted text files at
300x300 and 600x600 dpi.
»
Note: Using 600x600 dpi resolution with the legal media size requires
additional memory.
PostScript Level 2 Emulation and Level l
Compatibility
The QMS 1060 Print System’s Level 2 emulation allows you to take
full advantage of your printer’s high print resolution. The Level 2 emulation is compatible with Adobe’s PostScript Level 2 language while
providing additional capabilities. The Level 2 emulation supports
extensive graphics capabilities to control the appearance of text, geometric shapes and images, and improves memory and resource management. Full support for PostScript Level 1 files is also included.
Resident Fonts and Symbol Sets
Your printer comes with 12 PostScript typeface families containing 39
licensed fonts, and it provides support for any TrueType font that’s in
the format required for PostScript. All resident PostScript typeface
families have multilingual character sets. The printer also has 7 resident bitmap PCL 5 fonts in 25 symbol sets each, 12 resident scalable
PCL 5 fonts in 35 symbol sets each, 1 resident scalable PCL 5 font in
5 symbol sets, and 40 resident HP-GL symbol sets.
User Benefit—With so many resident fonts and symbol sets, there is
less need for time-consuming downloading.
QMS Crown Technology
The QMS Crown multitasking operating system provides fast processing speeds, networking capability, and higher printer performance while maintaining outstanding print quality.
1-16
QMS 1060 Print System Getting Started
Printer
Features
Multitasking and Compile-Ahead Technology
Your printer receives, compiles, processes, and prints multiple documents at the same time—true multitasking. The printer has a variety
of resources that it uses to print the page. Memory, emulations, and
the laser printer engine (the mechanical parts that actually put toner
on the page) are all resources of the printer.
Compile-ahead technology is the temporary storage of page images
in a proprietary compressed data format. It makes maximum use of
the memory resource. While the engine is busy printing a page, compile-ahead technology uses the available printer memory to prepare
the subsequent pages of the document (or the next job). These page
images are available as soon as the current page is printed. For
example, while the QMS 1060 Print System is actually printing the
third page of a five-page document, pages four, five, and the next job
in the queue are already compiled into the compressed data format.
User Benefit—With multitasking, your jobs are printed more quickly,
and the host is free sooner. With compile-ahead technology you
spend less time waiting for documents to print. This improves printer
throughput and increases your productivity.
Simultaneous Interface Operation (SIO)
Although many other printers have multiple interface ports and automatically designate a “hot port,” only one port actively receives data
at a time. Your QMS 1060 Print System is unique because SIO allows
all of its interface ports—LocalTalk, parallel (Centronics and bidirectional IEEE 1284), serial, and two optional network interfaces—to be
active at the same time.
The standard interfaces let you connect to any Macintosh or IBM PC
or compatible. The printer also works in many minicomputer, mainframe computer, and network environments.
User Benefit—You can have more than one computer sending print
jobs to the printer. Each interface has an input buffer (which may be
expanded with additional memory or an optional hard disk) that
receives data while another interface is being used to print.
Introduction
1-17
Printer
Features
Emulation Sensing Processor (ESP) Technology
Most printers can recognize only their native command language.
However, ESP technology, which works with most popular commercially available applications, uses a form of artificial intelligence to
analyze incoming file data and select the appropriate printer emulation from those installed on the printer, and processes the print job.
User Benefit—When your printer is in ESP mode, you can easily
print PostScript, HP PCL 5, HP-GL, or Lineprinter documents without
changing printer switch settings or sending software commands to
accommodate different printer languages.
The QMS 1060 Print System prints almost any file sent in a language
ESP technology understands, whether you have one, two, or more
hosts, and whether you are communicating through an LocalTalk,
Centronics or bidirectional IEEE 1284 parallel, serial, or optional network interface. Most users never have to change from ESP mode to
another mode.
Context Switching
After its initial use, the state of an emulation and downloaded data
(such as fonts, macros, and overlays when changing emulations) is
preserved for as long as the printer power is on.
User Benefit—Repetitive downloading of emulations, fonts, macros,
and overlays is unnecessary.
Compressed Data Formats
Crown printers convert data received from the input buffers into intermediate, compressed blocks until the data is needed for printing.
These compressed blocks of data are designed to be processed rapidly by the printer, and many more can be stored in memory at one
time than can traditional bitmapped images.
User Benefit—This allows and increases the speed of such printer
features as collation and automatic jam recovery, if enabled.
1-18
QMS 1060 Print System Getting Started
Printer
Features
Automatic Jam Recovery
Crown technology also provides automatic jam recovery, if enabled.
With most printers, if a media jam occurs, you must remove the
jammed media and then reprint the job. If a media jam occurs on a
Crown printer, however, the printer reprints the jammed page as soon
as you remove the jammed media and then continues with the print
job. This is possible because compressed data formats allow more
pages to be stored in memory. The printer remembers the last page
printed, pulls the necessary information from memory, and automatically reprints any lost pages.
User Benefit—You save time and print media because it’s unnecessary to resend a print job after clearing a media jam.
Energy Star Compliance
The QMS 1060 Print System is compliant
with US Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) Energy Star regulations.
After a specified length of inactivity, the
printer changes to a low-power state (the
engine remains on, but the fuser turns
off). When a print job is received the
printer returns to normal power within 90
seconds.
User Benefit—The EPA Energy Star Computers program promotes
the use of energy-efficient personal computers, monitors, and printers
and the reduction of air pollution caused by power generation.
Software Loadable System (SLS)
Your printer has a software loadable system, which allows you to
replace or upgrade its system software from a Macintosh, a PC, or
over any network interface.
User Benefit—Future enhancements to the system software can be
easily installed as they become available from QMS.
Introduction
1-19
Printer
Features
Remote Console
The 1060 Print System printer allows you to establish a remote console connection via TCP/IP Telnet, and you can additionally use NetWare, EtherTalk, and LAN Manager/LAN Server to establish this
connection, if you have the optional CrownNet interface installed.
Printer status conditions that require user intervention display on the
remote console. For example, status messages may indicate that
paper is low, output bin is full, or a paper jam has occurred. (Refer to
the QMS CrownNet Interface System Administrator’s Guide for information on how to start the session, and refer to the QMS Crown
Remote Console User’s Guide for complete information on using a
remote console to control and configure the printer.)
User Benefit—The ability to control your printer from a remote console as well as from the printer’s own control panel means you don’t
have to leave your work station whenever the printer needs attention.
Moreover, it means you’ll know right away if the printer is tied up with
a jam or other simple problem requiring user intervention.
PCMCIA Card Slot
A PCMCIA (Personal Computer Memory Card International Association) card slot is available to support Release 1 and 2, Type I, II and III
cards.
User Benefit—This card slot allows you to use optional fonts or emulations (see “Printer Options,” in the following section).
Printer Options
The following options are available for your QMS 1060 Print System.
Contact your QMS vendor for purchase information.
Upgradable RAM (Random Access Memory)
The 8 megabytes (MB) of resident RAM (Random Access Memory) is
upgradable to 64 MB through the installation of Single In-line Memory
Modules (SIMMs).
1-20
QMS 1060 Print System Getting Started
Printer
Features
User Benefit—Your printer’s memory can be upgraded as your
needs grow. Additional RAM provides room for font downloading and
font caching, and it increases the printer’s buffer (the area where data
sent from the host computer is stored), allowing you to send large
data-intensive files to the printer without tying up the host for long
periods. Additional RAM also allows you to attach and use multiple
SCSI drives.
500-Sheet Cassette, Optional Cassette, Optional
Cassette and Feeder, and 50-Envelope Cassette
These options increase the printer’s media feed capacity and flexibility. Your printer comes standard with a multipurpose tray to handle
150 sheets of 20-pound (75 g/m2) paper in letter, A4, legal, executive,
or B5 ISO sizes, or 10 envelopes. The 500-sheet cassette is capable
of supporting letter or A4 paper. The optional cassette and feeder
supports another 500 sheets of paper in letter, A4, or legal sizes, for a
total input of 1150 sheets, including the multipurpose tray. The
optional 50-envelope cassette allows you to feed 50 envelopes
instead of the 10 allowed in the multipurpose tray.
User Benefit—You can customize the printer’s media input sources
to your printing needs and double the amount of paper available
before refilling cassettes. The envelope cassette increases 5-times
the number of envelopes that can be handled by the multipurpose
tray.
Optional Fonts
Optional fonts are available in several different formats.
n
The PCL ProCollection and special PostScript fonts are either
contained on PCMCIA cards or must be downloaded to an
optional printer hard disk. Optional font cards are plugged into the
slot on the back of the printer.

Power Requirements
Your printer requires a properly grounded AC outlet with a power
range of ±10% of the rated line voltage (120 V or 220/240 V). Noisegenerating equipment should not be connected to the same electrical
outlet as the printer. The recommended frequency is 47-63 Hz for
120 V system and 47-50 Hz for 220/240 V system.
▲ Caution: The supplied power cord is equipped with a 3-wire
grounding plug for safety purposes. Connect the plug to the proper
grounding-type power outlet.
Energy Star Compliance
The printer is compliant with US Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA) Energy Star regulations. After a specified period of inactivity,
the printer changes to a low-power state (the engine remains on, but
the fuser turns off). When a print job is received, the printer returns to
normal power within 90 seconds.

Installing the Toner Cartridge
In your laser printer, characters and images are created through a
process that applies toner (made of carbon particles) to the page in
the printer’s fusing unit. When an image is formed, heat and pressure
are applied to transfer the image to the page. The toner cartridge contains the toner and photosensitive drum needed to operate the laser
printer. You may purchase additional toner cartridges from your QMS
vendor.

Printer-host interface
Connecting via the LocalTalk Port
Introduction
Introduction
This chapter explains what an interface is, describes how to connect
your printer to a Macintosh (or another computer on a network that
uses LocalTalk-type connectors and boxes).
Using an Optional Network Interfaces
In addition to the three standard interfaces—LocalTalk, parallel (bidirectional), and serial—the QMS 1060 Print System has the option of
using two optional interfaces to connect your printer to an Ethernet or
Token-Ring network.
If you have purchased an optional interface for your printer, refer to
the following for more information:
n
n
n
If you’ve purchased an optional network interface for the printer,
see chapter 6, “Printer Options,” of the Reference guide as well
as the documentation that comes with the interface for installation
instructions.
The documentation that comes with the optional network interface contains information about all other options in the network
interface menu as well as instructions for connecting the printer to
the network and for printing over the network.
Your application and network documentation contain information
on printing over the network.
Using the LocalTalk Interface
Connecting to the LocalTalk port involves basically three steps:
assembling the proper interface cabling (use a LocalTalk-type kit such
as Farallon's PhoneNET, available from your QMS vendor), making
the connection, and making sure the necessary printing files are
installed on the Macintosh.

Your host is any member of the Apple Macintosh family. The
instructions in this chapter explain how to connect a Macintosh
(via either a direct connection or through a LocalTalk network
connection) to the QMS 1060 Print System.
Your host is an IBM PC or compatible microcomputer, workstation, minicomputer, or mainframe computer that connects through
a print network (such as AppleShare) using LocalTalk-type connectors and boxes.
If you’re connecting to a host such as these, you may need additional hardware or software. See your host or network documentation for details specific to your setup.
Interface
Interface is the point at which two elements connect so they can work
together. Printer-host interface is the way a printer connects to and
works with a host (for example, a microcomputer, minicomputer,
mainframe computer, or a network), and it involves both hardware
and software. The way your printer interfaces with a host depends on
many things, including computer type, computer ports available, interface cabling, application software, printer emulations, and printer drivers.

Making the Connection
Use the following procedure to connect your printer to the Macintosh.
▲ Caution: Turn off both the printer and the Macintosh before making
the connection.
1
Plug the connector from one transformer box into the
printer’s LocalTalk port.
2
Plug the connector from the other transformer box into the
Macintosh printer port.
3
Connect the two transformer boxes with the telephone cable.
4
Put terminating resistors in all open sockets in the connector boxes.
This ensures proper communication and helps speed up transmission.
5
Turn on the printer.
A start-up page should print if it has not been disabled.
Macintosh Printing Software
If your Macintosh was previously connected to a PostScript printer,
you can probably start printing now with the printing software already
in place. Refer to your application documentation for instructions on
sending a document to the printer.
However, if you want to use all of your printer's special features (like
collation, 600x600 dpi printing, and gamma correction), or if you've
never printed to a PostScript printer before, you need to take a few
minutes to make sure you have the following printing software
installed:

Installing PS Executive Series Printer Utilities
The PS Executive Series Utilities (or PS Exec), included on the Macintosh-format disks we shipped with your printer, is a utilities program
for controlling the printer from the Macintosh. For example, through
PS Exec you can turn off the start-up page, rename the printer, install
printer-resident screen fonts, download fonts, print font samples, and
manage hard disks. Many of the procedures described in this manual
involve using PS Exec.
1
With the Macintosh on, insert the Macintosh Format PS
Executive Series Utilities disk in the disk drive.
2
Double-click the PSExec3.xx Installer icon.
3
In the PSExec 3.x dialog box that appears, verify the Install
Location.
To change the Install Location you can either use the drop-down
list box to display and select the appropriate disk, or you can
choose the Switch Disk button to scroll through the available
disks.
4
Also in the PSEXEC 3.x dialog box, choose Easy Install or
Custom install.
n
n
Easy Install automatically installs all of the utilities, including
the PS Exec application; the LaserWriter 8.x driver; the PDF,
PDX, and PPD files; and the screen fonts.
Custom Install allows you to choose the options you want to
install.
The amount of available space on your Macintosh hard disk
and the amount of space necessary for all of the selected
options are indicated near the bottom of the window.
Note: If you’re using Custom Install, you can click the small
icon (it looks like an I inside a square) to the right of each
option for more information about that install option.

Click Install to begin the installation.
QMS 1060 Print System Getting Started
Using the
LocalTalk
Interface
The installation takes approximately one minute. The Installer
places the LaserWriter 8.x driver in the Extensions folder inside
the System Folder and all of the other options inside a newly created PSExec 3.x ƒ folder in the hard disk window. Also inside this
folder is the Installer log file, which you can view to verify the
installation.
Note: All Macintosh users on a network must use the same
version of the LaserWriter and Laser Prep files to run correctly.
For example, if the network has a mixture of LaserWriter 6.x, 7.x,
and/or 8.x, the printer will experience frequent reinitialization
problems. To check the version number, select the LaserWriter
icon and then hold down the Command key and press the I key.
The driver version number appears in the Info window on the
second to last line. LaserWriter 7.x and 8.x do not require a Laser
Prep file to work correctly with your printer. The Laser Prep
information is located within the LaserWriter driver itself.
»
6
When the installation is finished, you are prompted to
choose Continue to install additional options from the Custom installation option or to choose Quit to exit the Installer
program.
Note: The Easy Install procedure automatically installs the
Version 4.x PPDs but not the Version 3.0 PPDs. If you want to
install them, you can do so now as a Custom installation. Return
to step 4.

Installing Application-Specific Printer Files
If you plan to print from Aldus PageMaker, Aldus FreeHand, Aldus
PrePrint, Adobe Separator, or QuarkXPress, you’ll also want to install
the latest printer description file (PPD, PDX, or PDF) for your particular software. You can probably print without this file, but you may not
be able to access all of your printer’s features, and you may get an
error message telling you to change the printer name.
»
Note: The application (PageMaker, FreeHand, PrePrint, Separator, or
QuarkXPress) should be installed before you install the printer
description file(s).
1
If you haven't already, follow the instructions given above in

Note: Version 3 PPDs are not installed automatically through
the PS Exec Easy Install procedure. You must use the
Custom Install procedure. Refer to the PS Exec installation
instructions at the very beginning of this section.
If you use Aldus PrePrint, install the version 3.0 PPD and
PDX files in the PPDs folder in the Aldus folder in the System
Folder.
Note: Version 3 PPDs are not installed automatically through
the PS Exec Easy Install procedure. You must use the
Custom Install procedure. Refer to the PS Exec installation
instructions at the very beginning of this section.
If you use QuarkXPress, install the QMS 1060 and 1060E
PDFs in the same folder as QuarkXPress. While QuarkXPress 3.3 allows you to access either PDFs or PPDs, to
have access to all of your printer’s features, you should use
the PDF. To select the PDFs, go to the Page Setup dialog box
in QuarkXPress, and hold down the Shift key while clicking
the Printer Type list box. (The italicized selections are PPDs,
and the non-italicized selections are PDFs.) See your
QuarkXPress documentation for more information.
Note: The 1060E PDF allows you to choose between Basic
and Enhanced (Advanced) Halftoning in QuarkXPress. If this
PDF is not present, you won’t be able to used Enhanced
Halftoning even though the printer supports it. See chapter 5,

dialog box appears.
b
Select the printing options you want; then click OK. If no page
prints, check chapter 6, “Troubleshooting,” of the Operation
guide.
Printing from the Macintosh
You're now ready to print from your Macintosh. From this point, you'll
probably perform most printing tasks from your application. For
specific information, check the printing section in your application
documentation.
For information on print media types and sizes, see chapter 2, “Print
Media,” in the Reference guide.
A Note for Users of Aldus Applications
If you use an Aldus application (or one that used to be owned by
Aldus, such as Adobe PageMaker or MacroMedia FreeHand), when
you want to print, hold down the Option key while selecting Print from
the File menu. This brings up the LaserWriter windows, which contains the QMS printing options. Normally, Aldus applications bypass
LaserWriter and use an Aldus printer driver, which prevents you from
accessing QMS printing options.

If you have new PC and it has not been connected yet, before connecting the printer to the PC, you should follow the manufacturer’s
instructions for setting up the PC and installing (if necessary) any
operating system software, such as DOS and and/or Windows.

Before Making
the Connection
What You Need
Interface cables are not included with your printer. If you’re replacing
a printer, you may already have the necessary cables. If not, you’ll
need to purchase the cables from your QMS vendor or a local computer store.
To connect your printer to a single PC, you need one of the following:
n
n
»
A parallel cable with a 36-pin male and a 25-pin male connector
or
A serial cable with either a 9-pin female and a 9- or 25-pin connector (depending on your computer’s serial port) and a null
modem adapter.
Note: See the “Cable Pinouts” section of appendix B, in the
Reference guide for cable pinout information.
How to Choose a Cable
Parallel cable—If a parallel port is available on your computer, we
recommend using a parallel cable. Your printer supports both
Centronics parallel and IEEE 1284 bidirectional parallel communication. The type of parallel cable you use depends on the type of parallel communication your computer supports (check your computer
user’s guide if you’re unsure).
n
n
If your computer supports only IEEE 1284 bidirectional parallel
communication, you need an IEEE 1284 bidirectional parallel
cable (IEEE 1284 is indicated on cable) . This cable must be 6.5
feet/2 meters or less in length.
If your computer supports only Centronics parallel unidirectional
communication, you may use either a Centronics parallel cable
(marked on cable) or an IEEE 1284 bidirectional parallel cable
(IEEE 1284 is indicated on the cable). However, we recommend
an IEEE 1284 cable. It must be 6.5 feet/2 meters or less in length
while the Centronics cable may be longer.
Connecting to a PC
4-3
Making the
Connection
Serial cable—If the printer is more than 6.5 feet/2 meters from the
computer, we recommend using a serial cable for better communication. For best results, the printer and computer should be less than 25
feet/7.6 meters from each other.
Making the Connection

Test communication between the printer and the PC.
You can do this by sending a file from one of your applications, or
you can see the following section, “Testing Communication.”
Testing Communication
To test communication between your printer and your PC, first create
a short file that ejects a page from the printer. Then send the file to
the printer.
Connecting to a PC
4-5
Testing
Communication
Creating the Test File
To create the test file, type the following commands at the DOS
prompt:
copy con printest.ps↵
showpage↵
^D^Z↵
(All commands above except the DOS copy command are case sensitive and must be typed exactly as shown.) Showpage is a PostScript command that prints a blank page. The ↵ symbol means to
press the Enter key. To produce the ^D and ^Z, press and hold down
the Ctrl key while you type the appropriate letters (d and z). These
characters signify the end of the file and must always be included.
Sending the Test File
Parallel Communication
1
To send the PRINTEST.PS file you just created to the printer,
type
print printest.ps↵
2
If you’re prompted for the name of the list device, type
lpt1↵
or type the name of the PC’s parallel port to which the printer is
connected (for example, lpt2 or lpt3).
Note: If the computer has more than one parallel port, they're
probably labeled. If not, check the computer documentation for
the LPT port names.
»
3
If the printer and PC are communicating, a blank page ejects
from the printer. Skip ahead to “PC Printing Software” to finish connecting the printer.
If a blank page doesn’t eject and you typed the file correctly, you
may want to check your AUTOEXEC.BAT file to see if LPT1 (the
parallel port) is being directed to COM1 (the serial port):
4-6
QMS 1060 Print System Getting Started
Testing
Communication
a
If the AUTOEXEC.BAT file contains the line
MODE LPT1:=COM1:
delete it.
b
Then type
MODE LPT1:,,P↵
The “P” represents infinite retry and it tells the PC to send
print jobs until the printer accepts them.
c
Restart the PC and retry the communication test.
See chapter 6, “Troubleshooting,” of the Operation guide and
refer to your DOS documentation for more information.
Serial Communication
1
To send the PRINTEST.PS file you just created to the printer,
type
print printest.ps↵
2
If you’re prompted for the name of the list device, type
com1↵
or type the name of the PC’s serial port to which the printer is
connected (for example, com2 or com3).
Note: If the PC has more than one serial port, they're probably
labeled. If not, check the PC documentation for the COM port
names.
»
3
If the printer and PC are communicating, a blank page ejects
from the printer. Skip ahead to “PC Printing Software” to finish connecting the printer.
If a blank page doesn’t eject and you typed the file correctly, you
may want to check your AUTOEXEC.BAT file in DOS to make
sure that the printer's serial port settings match those of the PC.
Connecting to a PC
4-7
Testing
Communication
a
Look for a command line like this in your AUTOEXEC.BAT
file:
MODE COM1:9600,N,8,1,P↵
In this example, the serial port settings are 9600 for baud
rate, N (no) parity, 8 data bits, and 1 stop bit. The “P” stands
for infinite retry.
Note: If the mode statement isn’t in your AUTOEXEC.BAT
file, you may temporarily set these parameters at the DOS
prompt to continue this test by typing the mode statement as
shown above. To make this setting permanent, you’ll need to
add this statement to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
»
b
Restart the PC, and then check the start-up page, which
prints when you turn on the printer (unless you disabled it).
This tells you the current serial port settings for the printer.
c
If the serial settings (baud rate, parity, data bits, and stop bits)
shown on the start-up page match those in your
AUTOEXEC.BAT file, you need make no further changes. Go
to the section “Special PC Concerns” later in this chapter.
If the printer’s serial port settings are different from your PC’s
settings, use the printer control panel, as described in the following section, “Changing Serial Port Settings,” to make them
match.
Changing Serial Settings
Since your printer is configured at the factory for the most typical
printing environments, the serial settings in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file
and on the start-up page should be the same. However, if they differ,
you must configure the printer to use the serial settings specified in
the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

PS Executive Series Utilities
A PostScript printer driver
Printer description files (if you use QuarkXPress 3.3, Aldus PageMaker, or Adobe PhotoShop)
Installing PS Executive Series Printer Utility
Software
PS Exec, included on the DOS format disks we shipped with your
printer, is a utilities program for controlling the printer from the PC. For
example, through PS Exec you can turn off the start-up page, rename
the printer, download fonts, print font samples, and manage hard
disks. Many of the procedures described in this manual involve using
PS Exec. The README file on the PS Executive disk explains how to
install the program, and the on-line help explains how to use it.
Installing a PostScript Printer Driver
If you're using Windows, we recommend that you install the
QMS-developed Windows driver, which is on the disk called Windows
Drivers (shipped with the printer). Instructions for installing and activating the driver are in the next section.
Connecting to a PC
4-11
PC Printing
Software
If you're using a non-Windows application, read the printing section of the application documentation for information on choosing a
PostScript driver. If the application does not provide a PostScript
driver, contact the application manufacturer to see if one has become
available since you bought the program. Also, PostScript drivers for
some applications are available through the QMS bulletin board and
through CompuServe; see appendix A, “QMS Customer Support,” for
information.
Also, check to see if application notes (tips for printing from specific
applications) are available for your application from Q-FAX, the QMS
bulletin board, or CompuServe. Appendix A, “QMS Customer Support,” explains how to use these QMS information services.
Installing the QMS Windows Driver
The QMS-developed Windows driver supports all the printer's features. Use the following procedure to install the driver:

These menu charts show only the top-level menus. See chapter
4, “Printer Configuration,” of the Reference guide for detailed
information on a menu selection’s options.
The Administration/Communications menu and the Administration/Emulations menu both have more menu selections than it is
possible to fit on one page, so each of these menus have their
own individual menu charts.
