I am trying to access the virtual queues (print, hold, direct) from a MAC. On a PC you just type \\10.1.1.xxx into a browser and the queues are displayed.

On the MAC I tried using Finder to connect the the IP smb://10.1.1.xxx and it prompts me for a username and PW. I tried Admin/Fiery.1 Operator/noPW Guest/noPW.

Does anyone know if this can be done on a MAC?

thanks,

Mat Hourigan

I have figured out how to access the virtual queues on the RIP from a MAC. Just add a "windows" printer, browse the domain or workgroup, select the hostname of the RIP, select the virtual queue you want to connect to (direct,hold,print) and authenticate using the Administrator, Operator, or Guest account.
To batch print files including JPEG's, just open the queue and drag and drop files.
*remember to save the passwork in the keychain*

Thanks,

Mat
