ONFIGURING NSTALLABLE PTIONS ONFIGURING NSTALLABLE PTIONS After you complete the printer driver installation, you must configure the Integrated Fiery Color Server for the options installed on the digital press to allow the Integrated Fiery Color Server to take advantage of the digital press options. Configure the options manually, or for TCP/IP network connections, use the Two-Way Communication feature to configure the options automatically.
ONFIGURING NSTALLABLE PTIONS Configuring installed options and updating print options settings automatically If you enabled a TCP/IP network, you can automatically update your printer driver to reflect the options currently installed on the digital press. When the printer driver is first installed, the options reflect the default settings that were set up in Integrated Fiery Color Server Setup or ColorWise Pro Tools.
RINTING TILITIES RINTING TILITIES In addition to printing jobs from the Integrated Fiery Color Server printer driver, you can print jobs using the following utilities: • Job Monitor You can view information about the print jobs sent to the Integrated Fiery Color Server. Job Monitor is automatically installed when you choose the printer driver to install on your computer.
RINTING TILITIES 6 Select the Monitor my print job option. When you send your first print job to the Integrated Fiery Color Server, Job Monitor opens a utility window and establishes a connection to the Integrated Fiery Color Server. If you have installed and configured printer drivers for more than one digital press, Job Monitor automatically establishes connections to all the Integrated Fiery Color Servers.
RINTING TILITIES • Manage jobs using an e-mail application. You can manage your print jobs by submitting e-mail commands to the Integrated Fiery Color Server using e-mail. • Scan to E-mail. You can scan a document and send it to an e-mail address as an attachment or URL. For more information about Scan to E-mail, see Utilities.
RINTING TILITIES If your attachment exceeds the file size limitation set by your e-mail system administrator, the e-mail is not sent. 5 Optionally, you can type text in the body of the message. That text is printed with the file. HTML-formatted e-mail messages are not supported, and they might not print as they appear on the remote workstation.
RINTING TILITIES Managing print jobs with e-mail commands You can manage your print jobs by submitting commands to the Integrated Fiery Color Server using e-mail. You can cancel a job, check job status, and get help on a job. When you send a command, the Integrated Fiery Color Server returns an e-mail response.
RINTING TILITIES Printing from a USB device You can print files on a USB device to the Integrated Fiery Color Server. To do so, save files to the USB device and download them directly to the Integrated Fiery Color Server. You can print files that originated on Windows computers.
RINTING TILITIES FTP printing If FTP Services are enabled on the Integrated Fiery Color Server, the Integrated Fiery Color Server is set up as an FTP server.
