Communicating with the network
System Overview Guide
Xerox Client Software: Provides a print command for
submitting jobs and specifying print options. The functionality
of the print command is dependent on the TCP/IP software
installed on the workstation.
Xerox DocuPrint Document Submission Client software
for the Macintosh: Provides a graphical user interface for
submitting jobs and specifying print options.
Xerox DocuPrint Print Submission software for Windows
3.x, Windows 95/98, Windows NT, and Windows 2000:
Provides graphical user interfaces for submitting jobs and
specifying print options.
Internet Printing Protocol for Windows 2000: Allows job
submission over the Internet.
In many cases, the workstation can be set up for more than one
method of job submission.
The application software provides the capability to print the
document using a page description language (PDL). The
application produces print data in one of the supported page
description language formats, for example PostScript level 2.
After the print data has been prepared for printing and combined
with print options data—either by the application software or by a
print job submission utility—the print job is sent over the network.
The printer supports TCP/IP, AppleTalk, and Novell NetWare
network communications protocols.
Client workstations require a network software utility that submits
the job using the appropriate network protocol. This software
must be installed and running for jobs to be submitted
successfully to the printer. Once this software is installed, its
operation is transparent to the user.
The Macintosh uses Printer Access Protocol (PAP) to
communicate with one or more DocuPrint printers. For
convenience, your internet may be divided into zones. A zone
can be any logical grouping of individual workstations and
printers. Your network administrator defines your zone when
setting up the network.
