This Getting Started Guide contains instructions for the installation and configuration of the
Splash M Series Color Server and the client workstations on your network. Follow these
instructions each time you set up the Splash M Series Color Server in a different location,
connect it to a different network, or connect it to a different color copier.
The Splash M Series Color Server comes standard with a 10/100base T network card, which
you can connect to standard Ethernet (10baseT) or Fast Ethernet networks (100baseT). The
color server automatically configures the card for Fast Ethernet if Fast Ethernet is detected.
Do not use a cross-over cable to connect your workstation directly to the Splash M Series. If
you need a direct connection, use a mini-hub.
Do not power up the Splash M Series Color Server until instructed.
To connect the Splash M Series Color Server to the copier, follow these steps:
Turn off the copier
2. Unpack the Splash M Series Color Server and place it near the copier.
3. Open the accessory box and remove the cables.
4. Connect the Splash M Series Color Server to the copier using the cable provided.
5. Connect the power cable to the Splash M Series Color Server and plug it into an outlet.
Do not use an outlet on the same power circuit as the copier's outlet.
6. After connecting all the cables,
The copier must be up and at a ready state in order for the Splash color server to set up
proper communications with the copier. Do not turn on the server before the copier is ready.
7. When the copier is in ready state,
Refer to Normal Initialization Process on page 2 for information on the server
initialization process. Once the server has completed it's initialization, a startup test
page prints, indicating that the color server is properly connected to the copier.
