Issue:
How to install an LPR (Line Print Remote) port for the Fiery RIP in Windows XP, 2000 and NT 4.0.
Preliminary Notes:
  • Although XP has shown to be compatible with Fiery operation, this operating system is not supported.
  • LPR allows for the assignment of queues necessary for Fiery operation when using these operating systems.
  • The Operating System CD-ROM will be required to install LPR services.
note:
The error Unable to communicate to IP xxxxxxxx can occur when the LPR port is not set up on a Windows 2000 system. Install LPR port as instructed below.
