The lpd protocol is the standard TCP/IP printing protocol. The Fiery X2-W is auto-sensing. The http protocol is commonly used for Web pages on the Internet and on intranets. When you add the Fiery X2-W to a network. Workstations that use other protocols can print through a server that uses one of the protocols mentioned.

The stages of a successful installation are: Physically connecting the Fiery X2-W to a functioning network Prepare a network node for the Fiery X2-W—obtain cable and route it to the location where the Fiery X2-W will be installed (near the printer) and attach the cable to the network interface of the Fiery X2-W. . See Chapter 5 and the User Guide for details. and some information is provided in Chapter 4 of this manual. See Chapter 3. • Preparing client workstations for printing Install the files needed for printing. • Administering the Fiery X2-W Monitor and maintain system performance and troubleshoot problems that arise.

The diagrams describe devices that use the supported networking protocols. For example. They are logical diagrams and are not intended to describe the physical arrangement (topology) of devices on the network. If the network uses more than one protocol or more than one type of workstation. Note that multiple protocols (shown in the diagrams as parallel lines) can run on the same cable. twisted pair Ethernet networks commonly use a star configuration around a hub. The design of physical networks is beyond the scope of this manual. The protocols used in these diagrams are indicated as follows: IPX (Novell) AppleTalk Parallel Other TCP/IP (lpd.1 1-4 Connecting to the Network Quick path to installation The diagrams on the following pages show typical systems that can be used for printing and running Fiery software from remote workstations. combine the setups listed for each component of your system.

1 1-12 Connecting to the Network Ethernet cable connection The Fiery X2-W supports Ethernet cabling of three types: • Thinnet (thin coaxial Ethernet cable or 10Base2) Uses an external transceiver to attach to the AUI (Attachment Unit Interface) connector on the Ethernet interface of the Fiery X2-W. • Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) defined as Category 5 for use with 100BaseT. The term “100BaseT” is used to refer to 100BaseTX. . it must be a 100BaseTX hub. Uses an 8-pin RJ-45 connector that plugs into the RJ-45 socket on the Fiery X2-W. • Thicknet (thick coaxial Ethernet cable or 10Base5) Connects directly to the AUI connector on the Ethernet interface of the Fiery X2-W. N OTE : The 100BaseT type supported by the Fiery X2-W is 100BaseTX. or as Category 3 or Category 5 for use with 10BaseT. also known as Fast Ethernet. If an Ethernet hub is used.

Setting up Network Servers

Configuring a NetWare server for printing
The following sections explain how to set up a NetWare file server so that network users can print to the Fiery X2-W from their workstations, and the Fiery X2-W can obtain print jobs from the NetWare server. For each NetWare file server that you configure, follow these general steps. More detail is provided in subsequent sections and in your NetWare documentation. • Make sure the server is connected to a functioning IPX network. • Log in as the Supervisor on a PC connected to the NetWare file server. • For NetWare 4.x installations, set up an NDS connection (see page 4-6). • For NetWare 4.x in emulation mode, set the bindery context (see page 4-6). • For NetWare 3.x and for NetWare 4.x in bindery emulation, set up a file server, a print server, and a print queue for the Fiery X2-W (see page 4-7). With bindery services, you can route all Fiery X2-W print jobs through the same NetWare file server, or you can configure more than one file server to handle Fiery X2-W jobs. The functions you perform on the Novell server, on the Fiery X2-W, and on the client workstation, are summarized in the following tables. The first table applies to NDS connections, the second to bindery connections. Complete the operations in the left column, then the center column, then the right column.

Setting up Network Servers

Setting up an NDS connection In NDS, all NetWare entities (objects) are organized in a hierarchical tree structure. Objects have a name, properties, and a context which defines the location of the object in the directory tree. For the Fiery X2-W you are mainly concerned with defining a printer, a print server object and one or more print queue objects. Objects are created in NetWare administrator programs such as PCONSOLE, NETADMIN, or NetWare Administrator. The top-level tree object is known as the [Root] object. The name of the [Root] object is also the name of the tree. Below the [Root] are other objects: either containers (which consist of other objects) or leaf objects (which do not contain other objects). Access to objects is controlled by rights that are defined as properties of each object. Rights are established by network administrators. Setting the NetWare 4.x bindery context You can connect only one directory tree to the Fiery X2-W. If you need to connect additional NetWare 4.x servers, you can do so by using bindery emulation, which causes the 4.x server to behave like and be accepted as a NetWare 3.x server.
N OTE : The file server selected must not be in the same tree as that selected in NDS

Setup. Up to eight bindery servers, whether in native 3.x mode or in 4.x emulation, can connect to the Fiery X2-W. If your server is using NetWare 3.x, proceed to “Setting up a NetWare print queue for bindery” on page 4-7. In order to set up the NetWare 4.x server in bindery emulation mode for printing to the Fiery X2-W, the network administrator must do the following: • Determine the Directory Services path to the container in which the print server and the print queue for the Fiery X2-W will be created. The container defines the “bindery context” for your network structure. • Edit the network startup file to set the bindery context. • Activate the new bindery context.

To determine the additional fonts that have been downloaded to the Fiery X2-W, print the Font List now and print it again after you complete the system software installation. Any fonts not listed after installation will need to be reinstalled. See the User Guide for more information. • If the “Software not authorized” message appears on the Control Panel, you must enter an authorization code, obtained from your authorized service/support center. See “Authorization code” on page A-10. Control Panel menus for installing the system software are always displayed in English even if the Fiery X2-W is configured for another language.

Installing system software using the SCSI interface port
To install system software using the SCSI port on the Fiery X2-W, you need: • An external CD-ROM drive with SCSI ID set to a number other than 0 or 7 • A SCSI II to SCSI I cable to connect the CD-ROM drive to the Fiery X2-W TO SCSI

Suggested action • Check cable connection to the Fiery X2-W and attached device (CD-ROM drive or computer). • If you are using a Windows computer to install software, check the computer’s parallel port setup (see “To prepare for installation using the parallel port:” on page A-6). • Repeat system software installation. • If the problem persists, use a different CD-ROM drive or computer to install system software.

Wrong file size Corrupt file size

Unpacking failed

Unexpected error - cause unknown.

• Check cable connection between the Fiery X2-W and CD-ROM drive or computer. • Repeat system software installation. • If the problem persists, use a different CD-ROM drive or computer to install software.

Creating task failed

Unexpected error - cause unknown.

• Reboot the Fiery X2-W. • Repeat system software installation. • If the problem persists, check configuration of Fiery X2-W and attached device.

Parallel port timeout

When installing system software using the parallel port, the “copy” command was entered too late or the file spooled too late.

• Repeat the procedure. Make sure to type the correct command on the MS-DOS command line and press the Enter key as soon as the Control Panel asks that you copy the file (see “To install system software using the parallel port” on page A-8). • Make sure spool setting for PC parallel port is set to print after last page is spooled (see “To prepare for installation using the parallel port:” on page A-6). • If the problem persists, check the parallel cable connection and the computer’s parallel port setup.

Using a Windows NT computer to install system software.

• Repeat installation procedure using a Windows 95/98 computer (see “Installing system software using the parallel port” on page A-5). • Reboot the Fiery X2-W • Repeat system software installation.

Memory allocation failed
