Integrated Fiery Color Server
INTRODUCTION
Introduction to the Integrated Fiery Color Server
The Fiery is a high-performance color controller that adds computer
connectivity and highly efficient color printing capability to digital
color copiers. It is optimized for high-speed communications,
processing, rasterization, and printing of continuous tone color and
monochrome (black and white) pages. Users can print from
networked Mac OS computers and from networked PCs running
Windows. In addition, the Fiery USB-Type A ports allow printing
directly from a USB device.
Features
As an integral part of the printing system, the Integrated Fiery Color
Server enables users to:

Send images over AppleTalk, TCP/IP, and Novell
networks, or through a USB device to print on a copier.

Spool print jobs and select a printing priority for each job.
Users can control spooled print jobs sent to the Fiery with
user software running on networked Mac OS computers
and PCs.

Print files in color, grayscale, and black and white.

Use the copier as a high-resolution color scanner with
Remote Scan utility.

Use 136 resident fonts (117 Adobe Type 1 PostScript fonts
with Euro Currency support, and 19 TrueType fonts), plus
two Adobe Multiple Master fonts used for font substitution
when printing PDF files. WebTools or the Command
WorkStation can be used to download additional fonts.

Use built-in ColorWise™ color management and
NetWise™ networking features.
Specifications
The Integrated Fiery Color Server Hardware specifications include:
CONFIGURATION TRAINING GUIDE

Celeron M440 Solo Intel 1.86GHz CPU

512 MB Memory (minimum)

80GB SATA hard disk drive (minimum)

Three USB-Type A ports for printing through a USB device

Supports AppleTalk and TCP/IP protocols simultaneously

Ethernet port for twisted pair
(10BaseT/100BaseTX/1000BaseT) network connection

INTRODUCTION
Integrated Fiery Color Server
Network Connectivity
When the Fiery is connected to a network, it behaves as a
networked printer. The Fiery supports the following network
protocols (rules that enable computers on a network to
communicate with each other):
 AppleTalk, Bonjour
 TCP/IP, which also includes the BOOTP, DHCP, FTP, HTTP,
IMAP, IPP, IPv4, IPv6, LDAP, LPD, NBT, POP3, Port 9100,
SMB, SMTP, SNMP, SNTP, SSL/TLS, 802.1x and IPSec
protocols
These protocols can run concurrently on the same cable.
Computers that use other protocols can print through a server that
uses one of the supported protocols. The Fiery is autosensing, and
handles all connections simultaneously. This information needs to
be managed by a local administrator.
How the Fiery Network Controller Operates
To gain an understanding of how the Fiery Color Server Operates,
consult the Integrated Fiery Color Server for the WC 7700 Series
MFP Installation and Service Guide, Introduction.

Customer documentation
Customer documentation (also known as “user documentation”) is
designed primarily for users and administrators. It also has
information that may be useful to service technicians; therefore,
cross-references to the customer documentation are included in the
Installation and Service Guide.
Service technicians can obtain user documentation on the Fiery
from the User Documentation CD. The documents are provided as
Adobe Acrobat PDF (Portable Document Format) files, which are
indexed and cross-referenced. In addition, some Fiery utilities (such
as Command WorkStation) offer built-in Help.
Fiery Print Options
The Fiery’s efficient PostScript capabilities allow customers to use a
variety of applications to create printed color or black-and-white
pages of text and/or images. The Fiery operates over a network.
Since the Fiery has the ability to print an image while processing
the next image (RIP-While-Print), it is capable of printing documents
at full copier speeds.
Users can print documents directly from the applications in which
they were created. In addition, the Fiery offers an efficient way to
print files that have been saved in PostScript, EPS (Encapsulated
PostScript), or PDF format. These files can be downloaded directly
to the Fiery using Command WorkStation, a remote utility provided
with the Fiery.

processing, or printing any jobs.
2. Power off the Fiery Controller by moving the Fiery
Controller power switch to the OFF (O) position.
3. Make sure the copier is not in use, and power off the copier
using the main power button on the left.
Wait for the Fiery Controller and copier to power off
completely. The Fiery Controller LED display turns off when
the Fiery Controller finishes powering off.
