Setting up Client Workstations on the CSX Color Server

Page 12

Printing with the CSX Color Server You can send and import any supported PDL file (for example, PostScript, PDF, EPS, VPS, VIPP) to print on the CSX Color Server... You can print from any open application on a PC, Macintosh or Unix client workstation... You can import a PDL file from the local hard drives, CD-ROM drives, or floppy drive connected to the CSX Color Server... You can also import files to be printed over the network from remote clients/file servers...

Page 13

PrintToStore Files sent to this printer are automatically processed in Ready-To-Print (RTP) format... Then they are stored in the CSX Color Servers Storage Folder until the print operator re-submits them for printing...

Page 14

When adding a new CSX Color Server printer to a client workstation, there is no need to install the CSX Color Server PPD and Adobe PS printer driver separately since they are installed automatically through the Windows Add Printer Wizard...
