Installing EPSON Stylus RIP for Macintosh
Direct Connection Network Configuration
In a direct connection configuration (shown below), the
Macintosh that is connected to the printer acts as the print
server, with the EPSON Stylus RIP Server software installed on
it. The printer is directly connected to the print server's
modem, printer, or USB port.
The other computers in the network are "clients" of the server,
with the EPSON Stylus RIP client software installed on them.
In this configuration, the client Macintosh computers send
print jobs to the print server, which puts the job in a print
queue and then sends it to the printer. This speeds up
transmission of the job because it is sent over the network only
once, offering you the best EPSON Stylus RIP performance.
It is best to choose a Power Macintosh with a fast processor and
ample RAM as your print server, allowing you to devote its
resources to printing the data sent over the network. LocalTalk
networks are not recommended for use with the EPSON Stylus
AppleTalk control panel
set to Ethernet for both
