This manual is intended for anyone who is responsible for integrating the DocuColor Color ServerTM into a business environment that includes networked personal comput- ers... After the DocuColor and client workstations are set up, as described in this guide and in Getting Started, individual users can print to the color server as a high-perfor- mance color Adobe PostScript printer...

Page 10

Getting Started describes how to install software to enable users to print to the DocuColor... Specifically, it describes installation of PostScript printer drivers, printer description files, and other user software provided on the DocuColor User Software CD... It also explains how to connect each user to the network...

Page 11

Conventions used in DocuColor manuals Actions you should perform are shown as numbered steps in bold-faced type, followed by a brief explanation if needed... For example:

Page 12

The initial letters of menu options and Control Panel setups are uppercase... Filenames and settings are listed in the special font only if it is hard to distinguish them from sur- rounding text...

Page 13

These protocols (rules that enable computers on a network to communicate with each other) are supported on the Windows, and UNIX platforms and can run concurrently on the same Ethernet cable... Workstations that use other protocols can print through a server that uses one of the protocols mentioned, or they can print to the DocuColor parallel port... A Token Ring option is also available... This option supports the TCP/IP and IPX protocols... The DocuColor is auto-sensing, and can handle all of these con- nections simultaneously...

Page 14

Install the files needed for printing, install additional user software, and connect the client to the DocuColor over the network... These steps are described in Getting Started, and some information is provided in Chapter 3 of this manual...

Page 15

COLOR SERVER SETUP In the DocuColor Control Panel, configure Server Setup, Network Setup, Printer Setup, PS Setup, Color Setup, and Job Log Setup... Perform AutoCal calibration...

Page 16

The diagrams describe devices that use the supported networking protocols... They are logical diagrams and are not intended to describe the physical arrangement (topology) of devices on the network... A variety of physical arrangements is possible with each logical arrangement... For example, twisted pair Ethernet networks commonly use a star configuration around a hub, rather than a bus arrangement... The design of physical networks is beyond the scope of this manual...

Page 17

All Windows computers can print through the NetWare server

Page 18

Mac OS clients computers can print through the NetWare server using the AppleTalk protocol; the NetWare server sends jobs to the DocuColor using the IPX protocol

Page 19

Windows 3... 1x or Windows 95 clients can print using a protocol available on the Windows NT print server; Windows NT machines can print using TCP/IP with the lpd protocol

Page 20

Windows computers using Windows (nbt) printing

Page 21

UNIX workstations with lpd protocol can print directly and act as host for shared printing

Page 22

The rest of this chapter and the next cover the parts of a installation that are performed on the DocuColor itself... This chapter describes the physical network connections; Chapter 2 summarizes DocuColor Setup and other administrative functions available from the Control Panel...

Page 23

Before you begin The following steps should be completed before you configure the DocuColor and the workstations that will print to the DocuColor... A service technician will have performed some initial installation...

Page 24

NOTE: The DocuColor 100BaseT option is of type 100BaseTX, also known as Fast Ethernet... If an Ethernet hub is used, it must be a 100BaseTX hub... Only Category 5 Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cabling can be used with 100BaseTX... The term 100BaseT is used in this manual to refer to 100BaseTX...

Page 25

If the Token Ring option is installed, you can attach an unshielded twisted pair cable to the RJ-45 connector on the Token Ring board and attach a second cable to the RJ-45 Ethernet connector... For more information on Token Ring, see Appendix A...

Page 26

Parallel cable connection In addition to receiving print jobs over Ethernet and Token Ring, the DocuColor can accept print jobs from a Windows computer through its high-speed parallel port... This connection is advantageous for portable computers and for workstations that use dedicated networks using protocols other than TCP/IP or IPX...

Page 27

About DocuColor Setup When the DocuColor is powered on after new system software is loaded, you (or the service technician who loads the software) choose the language you want to use for Control Panel screens... After that, the Server, Network, Printer, PS, Color, and Job Log Setups, in that order, must be configured from the Control Panel...

Page 28

DocuColor Setup from the Control Panel Setup, performed from the Control Panel right after powering on the DocuColor, configures the DocuColor to communicate with other devices and manage print jobs sent to it...

Page 29

The User Guide describes the online display screens in detail... This chapter describes only the screens you might see when performing Setup...

Page 30

NOTE: If you make changes in Server, Network, or Printer Setup, youll need to update the system configuration by opening and saving the other Setups even if you havent changed any other settings...

Page 31

In each Setup, the last line of the display window tells you the name of the current Setup menu... Most of the screens you see are shown on the Control Panel Map, a multiple-page flowchart that can be printed from the color server... When the color server is displaying the Idle screen (shown in the figure on page 2-3), you can print the Control Panel Map by choosing Print Pages from the Functions menu, and then choosing Control Panel Map...

Page 32

NOTE: If you make a mistake during Setup, you can always use the Menu button to cancel without saving changes... If you are viewing a Setup screen, pressing the Menu button cancels what you are doing in the current screen to bring you to the next higher level menu... You may need to press Menu more than once to return to the top level for the particular Setup procedure with which you are working... Once at the top level, you can enter the current Setup again, or exit without making changes...

Page 33

When you have entered all the settings or made all the changes you want, you need to save the changes... You are usually prompted to do so... If you choose Yes, your settings overwrite previous settings... If you choose No, your previous settings are retained... If necessary, the DocuColor reboots after you exit from the Setup menu...

Page 34

Select Yes if you want to enable the Printed queue, a storage location on the Docu- Color disk for recent jobs that were printed from the Print queue... Users with access to the Spooler or the WebSpooler can reprint their own jobs from the Printed queue without sending them to the DocuColor again... If you select No, jobs are deleted from the DocuColor disk immediately after they are printed...

Page 35

If the DocuColor is configured to enable more than one protocol, it automatically switches to the correct protocol when it receives a print job... When the parallel port and one or two network ports are enabled, print jobs can be received over all of those ports at the same time...

Page 36

During Network Setup, the DocuColor queries the network for zones, servers, and server-based queues... If you perform Network Setup without a connected and function- ing network, default settings are used that may not fulfill your needs...

Page 37

For first-time Setup, or if you have configured a new connection, choose Printer Setup after you finish Network Setup...

Page 38

You can enable Ethernet and parallel communication simultaneously... If the Token Ring option is installed, you can also enable Token Ring... To configure the DocuColor, choose each port type you use and enter the settings for that port... Since network setups are nested, the names of higher-level menus are shown in this chapter to the left of each menu heading...

Page 39

This option appears only if Enable Parallel Port is set to Yes... Your setting determines how long the DocuColor waits without receiving data from the parallel port before deciding that the current job is complete... Until the timeout, the DocuColor cannot receive new jobs through the parallel port, but it can continue to receive network print jobs...

Page 40

This option appears only if Enable Parallel Port is set to Yes... This option specifies that the DocuColor should ignore end-of-file (EOF) messages in a file... This option must be set to Yes to print PostScript files in binary format (not ASCII); under normal circum- stances, it should be set to No... When this option is set to Yes, the DocuColor uses the parallel port timeout value to determine when the end of the file has been reached...

Page 41

Enter the DocuColor IP address for Ethernet... The DocuColor is shipped with an invalid IP address... If you plan to print with TCP/IP, you must first assign the Docu- Color a unique, valid IP address... For information about setting up printing with TCP/IP, see Chapter 3...

Page 42

Use this option to set the gateway address for printing with TCP/IP... By default, the loopback address, 127... 0... 0... 1, is set... (The loopback address is a specially reserved address that allows for certain TCP/IP diagnostic tests to be run without being con- nected to a network... )

Page 43

Enter the DocuColor IP address for Token Ring... The DocuColor is shipped with an invalid IP address... If you plan to print with TCP/IP, you must first assign the Docu- Color a unique, valid IP address... For information about setting up printing with TCP/IP, see Chapter 3...

Page 44

The frame selection screen allows you to make multiple selections... Depending on your Port Setup selection, only Ethernet frame types, only Token Ring frame types, or all frame types are displayed... Press the line selection button beside each frame type used on your IPX/SPX network... An asterisk (*) appears beside each selected frame type... (Press the line selection button again to deselect a frame type... ) Use the arrow keys to scroll to additional frame types... The DocuColor binds to each frame type as you select it...

Page 45

For IPX/SPX networks, PServer Setup allows you to enter the names of the Novell objects that are concerned with DocuColor print jobs... PServer is a program in the DocuColor that services all the Novell print queues assigned to the Novell print servers you have set up for printing to the DocuColor... When you choose PServer Setup and enable PServer, you can set up NDS (Novell Directory Services), Bindery Services, or both... NDS is used with NetWare 4... x; Bindery Services are used with NetWare 3... x or with NetWare 4... x in bindery emulation mode...

Page 46

Enabling Windows Printing enables SMB (Server Message Block), the built-in Microsoft file and printer sharing protocol... Enabling SMB allows the DocuColor to be listed on the network so that Windows clients can print to a particular queue (Print or Direct) on the DocuColor without any other networking software...

Page 47

Select Yes if TCP/IP is enabled on the DocuColor and on user workstations, and you wish to make the WebTools available to users (see page 3-28)... The WebTools include WebSpooler and Installer... A Java-enabled Web browser and a valid IP address are required for each user... See the User Guide for details on browser choice and workstation requirements...

Page 48

Before entering NDS settings, be sure the DocuColor is connected to the network and you have already configured an NDS directory tree with a Printer, a Print Server, and one or more Print Queue objects for DocuColor jobs (see page 3-4)... To perform NDS Setup you may need permission to browse the NDS tree... If access to the Print Server is restricted, youll need a login password...

Page 49

Browsing to find the User Login object begins with the NDS tree that you selected previously (with Select NDS Tree)... Use the up and down arrow buttons to scroll a list of objects in the tree beneath the [Root] in the hierarchy, or use the navigation symbol ... to go up one level at a time...

Page 50

With a container object selected, choose OK to travel down the tree, or choose ... to go up the tree... When you select an object and choose OK, that object is then displayed on the top line, and the second line lists objects directly below it...

Page 51

By default, the DocuColor searches the entire NDS tree for DocuColor print queues... This option lets you restrict the search for DocuColor print jobs to a subtree (the Print Queue root) in which the DocuColor print queues have been defined... This makes the search more efficient... Select Entire NDS tree if the tree is small... Select Specified subtree to restrict the search and specify the subtree...

Page 52

Use Bindery Setup if you have already configured one or more bindery servers (file servers running NetWare 3... 12 or NetWare 4... x in bindery emulation) with a Print Server and a Print Queue for DocuColor jobs (see page 3-6)... Before entering bindery settings, be sure the DocuColor is connected to the network and the NetWare file server is running... Youll need a login name, and, if access to the file server or print server is restricted, youll need a login password...

Page 53

Add File Servercreates a new file server connection to the DocuColor... You can set up a maximum of eight file server connections... After you have finished adding a new server, you return to the Bindery Setup menu, and you can set up another server if you wish...

Page 54

You may select the file server from a scrollable list, or by a name search... Choose From List if your network doesnt have a large number of file servers... Select Search Name if the number of file servers is so large that scrolling through the list would take a long time...

Page 55

This option appears only if there is more than one print server defined on the selected Novell file server... From the list of print server names, select the name of the print server that you have configured in the NetWare utility PCONSOLE... This is the print server that will route print jobs to the DocuColor from computers on IPX networks...

Page 56

This option lets you view the list of file servers currently connected to the DocuColor, that is, servers you have added in Bindery Setup... You are notified if there are none... When you choose OK, you return to the Bindery Setup menu...

Page 57

Allows you to select a NetWare file server from a list of connected file servers and remove the connection to it... You are notified that you have removed the connection, and the Bindery Setup menu is displayed again... If you change your mind and dont want to remove any of the file servers, press the Menu button...

Page 58

DocuColor printing connections In DocuColor Printer setup you decide how the DocuColor manages print jobs by deciding which printing connections should be published to users over the network... The Direct connection and Print queue are constantly checked for the presence of jobs... If you dont want users to print to a connection, dont publish it...

Page 59

Printed queueThe Printed queue is a job storage area on the DocuColor disk; it contains the most recent jobs printed from the Print queue... The Printed queue makes it convenient to reprint those jobs... A Server Setup option enables this queue and governs the maximum number of jobs retained in it at any given time (see page 2-8)... Reprinting jobs in this queue requires the Spooler or WebSpooler...

Page 60

This option enables users to print (or download) jobs to the Print queue... Jobs that are printed to the Print queue are spooled to the DocuColor disk and printed on a first-in, first-out basis... Only queues published in the Printer Setup are available to remote users...

Page 61

Use this option to specify whether the DocuColor prints a cover (job summary) page at the end of each print job... If you select Yes, each print job is followed by a page con- taining the name of the user who sent the job, the document name, the color server name, the time the job was printed, the number of pages printed, and the status of the job... If a PostScript error occurred and the Print up to PostScript Error option is set to Yes, the status entry will be the PostScript error message...

Page 62

Use this option to specify whether the DocuColor should print the available portion of a print job when it encounters a PostScript error... Select Yes to print the portion of the job that was processed before the error occurred; select No to cancel the print job entirely when a PostScript error is encountered... We recommend leaving this option at No unless you encounter printing problems...

Page 63

The CRD (Color Rendering Dictionary) used defines how color will be converted from RGB data to printed output... Photographic mode, designed for images, retains the relative balance between colors to maintain the overall appearance of the image... Presentation mode, designed for bright colors, produces the saturated prints needed for most business presentations but handles continuous tone images the same way the Photographic mode does... Solid mode, designed for spot colors, retains the absolute value of each color... This is particularly useful for images such as corporate logos...

Page 64

Change Password enables you to create or change an administrator password on the DocuColor so that casual users cannot enter the Setup menus and change DocuColor settings without permission... In addition, an administrator password controls remote job management functions via the Spooler and the WebSpooler... A password created using the Setup menu prevents DocuColor users from reprinting print jobs, moving print jobs (changing their priority or their queue), and deleting or configuring jobs, other than their own... See the User Guide for details...

Page 65

Select the paper size for printing the Job Log... Fifty-five jobs are listed on a page, regardless of page size... The paper size used depends on the Default Paper Sizes setting in the Printer Setup... If the Default Paper Sizes setting is US, the Job Log is printed on tabloid or letter size paper, with tabloid the default...

Page 66

Normally you create a calibration by specifying a standard target to use with measure- ments that you took or measurements that you previously stored on the DocuColor... You can also specify an alternative target to be used with the current measurements... You dont need new measurements to calibrate with an alternative target... When you choose Apply/Overwrite Calibration, the currently specified target will be used with the latest measurements on the color server...

Page 67

Calibration options are summarized below... See the User Guide for calibration procedures and a fuller explanation of calibration options... You can print a Configuration page at the server to find out when the DocuColor was last calibrated... The Start page also contains this information... (To print a Configuration page from a DocuColor at Idle status, press the Menu button to display the Functions screen, scroll down to select Print Pages, and select Configuration... )

Page 68

Specify Yes if you want the DocuColor to print a page with two versions of a set of test images, one version using a calibration based on your most recent measurements and the selected target, and one with no calibration...

Page 69

Change Password Change Password enables you to set or change the administrator password for the DocuColor... The password determines whether a user can modify the Setup options, and whether a user has system administrator control over jobs in the Spooler and WebSpooler queues...

Page 70

Use the up and down arrow keys to select the characters and the left and right arrows to move between them... Enter characters from left to right, since the left arrow line selection key is a delete key... The password can be any combination of letters and num- bers up to 19 characters... Choose OK when you are done... Be sure to write down the password... The only way to remove a password that you cant remember is to reinstall system software...

Page 71

This chapter describes environments that typically include one or more network serversNovell NetWare servers and Windows NT serversthat will share printing to the DocuColor Color Server... It describes setting up servers that use IPX/SPX or TCP/IP protocols for communicating with the DocuColor... In addition, it includes some guidelines for setting up direct communication from Windows NT workstations and UNIX workstations, where a network server is optional... The chapter also outlines the requirements for network clients to print to the DocuColor and to run the remote utilities and the WebTools...

Page 72

The DocuColor can receive print jobs from NetWare clients over the Ethernet or Token Ring network topologies... (Appendix A describes the Token Ring option... ) During DocuColor setup, you select the frame type or types that will be used for communication between the DocuColor and network servers... Frame type refers to the format of a communications packet; frame types are specified in a startup file when the NetWare server (or any other workstation) loads its network drivers...

Page 73

When the DocuColor is configured to connect to a NetWare server, it polls the NetWare server for jobs in each of its queues... If jobs are found, they are transferred over the network to the matching connection: Print to Print, Direct to Direct... While a job is processed and printed, a record of the job is being created... You can access the Job Log containing these records at any time...

Page 74

Configuring a NetWare server for printing The following sections explain how to set up a NetWare file server so that networked users can print to the DocuColor from their workstations, and the DocuColor can obtain print jobs from the NetWare server...

Page 75

Service Setup PServer Setup and NDS Setup Select Root Browse to select PS Specify PQ search root (optional) Set Polling Interval

Page 76

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 DocuColor 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 (PCONSOLE or NETADMIN which are text- based, or NetWare Administrator which has a graphical user interface and context-sen- sitive help)...

Page 77

9... From the Printer dialog box, select Configuration and select Other/Unknown as the Printer Type and, depending on personality choice, select PostScript as the Banner Type...

Page 78

3... Choose Protocol Setup and configure the protocols you will use... Choose IPX/SPX Setup to select the frame type(s) that will be used between the NetWare server(s) and the DocuColor...

Page 79

Setting the NetWare 4... x bindery context You can connect only one directory tree to the DocuColor... 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... 12 server...

Page 80

This is best done by the network administrator using PSERVER from the server console... It can also be done remotely using the RCONSOLE utility...

Page 81

NOTE: Instead of xx, type the bindery context obtained from the system administrator... (In this example from a relatively simple directory structure, the Bindery Context is TS... ) Also note that O in this line is the letter O, not the digit zero...

Page 82

Setting up a DocuColor print queue for bindery For NetWare 3... 12 and for 4... x in emulation, the NetWare print server and print queue for DocuColor are created and configured from NetWare Print Console (PCONSOLE), a NetWare utility that is stored in NetWares PUBLIC directory...

Page 83

4... Using the arrow keys, select the name of the file server youll use for sharing Docu- Color printing and press Enter...

Page 84

9... Make sure the print queue name you created is selected in the list of Print Queues, and press Enter...

Page 85

Setting up NetWare Windows clients for printing Before setting up client workstations for printing, make sure you perform Network Setup on the DocuColor Control Panel (see page 2-9), and that the settings reflect the entities you created in the NetWare administrator utilities (see page 3-4)...

Page 86

On Windows 95 Workstations, both the IPX/SPX-compatible protocol and the Client for NetWare Networks should be loaded from the Network Control Panel... On Windows 3... 1x workstations, the NetWare shell should be installed... On Windows NT workstations, Client Service for NetWare should be installed... Use the CSNW option in Control Panel to set printing options and specify a preferred NetWare server...

Page 87

The Installer copies a blank configuration file to the Windows directory... The first time the client runs one of the utilities this file is automatically configured (see Getting Started)...

Page 88

DocuColor on a TCP/IP network with Windows NT When a Windows NT computer is configured to connect to the DocuColor using TCP/IP, it can print directly to the DocuColor... If the computer shares the printer over the network, it is acting as a print server to Windows NT and Windows 95 clients... The client machines print to the DocuColor by printing to the Windows NT print server... Printing can then be monitored and controlled at the Windows NT server machine...

Page 89

Configuring a Windows NT server to support the DocuColor To configure a Windows NT 4... 0 or 3... 51 server to communicate with the DocuColor, follow these general steps... More detail is provided in subsequent sections...

Page 90

Loading the TCP/IP network protocol If the TCP/IP protocol has not yet been installed on the Windows NT server, use the procedure in this section...

Page 91

For installations that dont have a network administrator or a central host name database, add the DocuColor to the hosts file on the Windows NT server... Also add it to the hosts file on any workstations that have TCP/IP loaded and will use the remote utilities...

Page 92

The Windows NT hosts file provides compatibility with the UNIX hosts file... The hosts file is used as a local Domain Name Services (DNS) equivalent... It has the same format as the /etc/hosts file on UNIX servers... The form of the hosts entry is:

Page 93

The installation instructions in Getting Started can be used for every workstation that will print directly and independently to the DocuColor... However, if you are an administrator running Windows NT Server or Windows NT Workstation, you can also create a printer and share it with clients on the network... When a printer is shared, clients who are not able or are not given permission to establish an independent network connection to the DocuColor have to print through the server...

Page 94

After you have finished configuring the printer, the DocuColor appears in its own Printer window in the Print Manager window... You can use the Print Manager window to track network print jobs... Print Manager only shows jobs from computers printing through the Windows NT print server... For a view of all DocuColor activity, use the Spooler or the WebSpooler...

Page 95

After clients have selected the printer, they can choose it from the Print Setup, Page Setup or Print dialog box of their application... Clients can change printing options for their own job, but printer properties are grayed and not available for changing... When a client chooses Print, the job is transmitted to the Windows NT print server, and from there to the selected queue on the DocuColor... The job is listed in the Print Manager on the client workstation, and the administrator can track it in the DocuColor window in the Print Manager on the Windows NT print server...

Page 96

Configuring Windows NT workstations for remote utilities To run the remote utilities on a TCP/IP network, the workstation must be running Windows NT Server or Windows NT Workstation, with Microsoft TCP/IP protocols loaded and bound to the network driver...

Page 97

Using AppleTalk with NetWare servers Users can print to the DocuColor from Mac OS computers via a NetWare print server... The AppleTalk protocol must be loaded on the NetWare server before you can set up the server to accept jobs from Mac OS clients... Then use the ATPSCON (AppleTalk Print Services) utility to configure a NetWare spooler for AppleTalk... The important settings for the spooler configuration are listed below...

Page 98

Install the Windows NT PostScript Printer driver and the DocuColor PPD for your Windows NT server and for your Windows NT and Windows clients... Mac OS users can print directly to the DocuColor and should install the AdobePS printer driver for the Mac OS and the DocuColor PPD... All of these installations are described in Getting Started...

Page 99

The remote utilities (Spooler and Downloader) are not currently available on the UNIX platform... However, a Windows NT Workstation or Windows NT Server computer set up to use TCP/IP for printing to the DocuColor can also use the Downloader to download files and fonts, and use the Spooler or WebSpooler to manage print jobs that originate from all workstations on the network... The basic procedures for setting up printing and installing remote utilities are given on page 3-26 and in Getting Started...

Page 100

Enter the remote printer name when you set up your Windows NT printer, as the Name of printer on that (lpd host) machine in the Add lpd compatible printer dialog box (see Getting Started)...

Page 101

Workstations on a TCP/IP network can print directly to the DocuColor as a remote printer, or can print to a Windows NT Server or a UNIX workstation acting as a print server... Since the DocuColor spools jobs and acts as a print server, there is no advantage in placing another print server between a workstation and the DocuColor... If you choose to do so, however, there is no difference in setup except that a client machine does not have its own spooling area...

Page 102

Printing and managing print jobs UNIX printing commands and options are detailed in the manual pages for your sys- tem... Some examples are given in the DocuColor User Guide...

Page 103

UNIX network administrators can use UNIX utilities for viewing the list of jobs, and for printing and removing jobs that are spooled on UNIX servers... If the network includes a Windows NT workstation that has TCP/IP protocols loaded, you can use the Downloader to download files and manage fonts on the DocuColor... You can also use the Spooler to:

Page 104

2... From a web browser on a workstation on the same network as the DocuColor, enter the DocuColor URL (Universal Resource Locatorthe standard Web address) to access the DocuColor home page...

Page 105

Administrator functions Administration features are provided in the user software package and are built into the color server itself... The following table tells you where to find information on these features... Page references are in this manual...

Page 106

Maintaining optimal server performance The DocuColor does not require maintenance... Beyond the obvious requirements of servicing and maintaining the copier and replenishing consumables there are a few things you can do that will improve the overall performance of your system:

Page 107

Troubleshooting the DocuColor Startup diagnostics are described in your service documentation... Contact your authorized service/support center if you see any startup error messages on the DocuColor Control Panel, or if the DocuColor does not reach Idle status...

Page 108

You have previously connected the DocuColor to a different NDS tree... NEST supports only a single NDS tree connection... To avoid a potential conflict with an existing tree connection (for example, if the connection was made through a NetWare 4... x server in emulation mode), all bindery settings will be deleted...

Page 109
