2-1 Fiery EX2101 on a TCP/IP network with Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003
This chapter describes environments that typically include one or more network
servers—Novell NetWare servers and Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 servers—that
share printing to the Fiery EX2101. It describes setting up servers that use IPX/SPX
or TCP/IP protocols for communicating with the Fiery EX2101. In addition, it
includes guidelines for setting up direct communication from Windows NT 4.0
/2000/XP/2003 workstations or UNIX workstations, where a network server is
optional. This chapter also outlines the requirements for users to print to the
Fiery EX2101 and run Fiery utilities and Fiery WebTools.
The Fiery EX2101 can accept jobs concurrently from NetWare and
Windows NT 4.0/ 2000/2003 servers, as well as jobs sent directly from
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003 or UNIX workstations. Because AppleShare
servers require no special conﬁguration, they are not discussed in this chapter, except
for use in a Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 environment (see the following section,

When a Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP/2003 computer is conﬁgured to connect to the
Fiery EX2101 using TCP/IP, it can print directly to the Fiery EX2101. If the computer
shares the printer over the network, it is acting as a print server to Windows 9x/Me and
Windows NT 4.0/2000/XP clients. Client computers print to the Fiery EX2101 by
printing to the Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 print server. You can then monitor and
control printing at the Windows NT 4.0/2000/2003 server computer.
