    Default One Workstation Question And One Driver Question

    I have a canonIR c4080 and We moved to a new location and i noticed while getting the printer installed and operating that there was useful tools that are provided with this printer that i did not know existed, which is the Fiery Workstation and The printers webui. Now my boss was aware of this and never used it cause he didnt know how it all worked. Heres my issue at hand. My boss cant seem to find the admin password for the printer in of itself. Now obviously you need these to gain access to the workstation software. Is there a way to find it or reset it. Also i dont know if this a something you guys can answer but its worth a try. I have our printer running on the network here, just like at our old location. Now with this printer there are two drivers, one post script PCL5c which i hate using or and then theres the H1 PS Ver2.0(this is the driver we would prefer to use. The computer im installing this on is Windows 7 x64, im installing though adding it as a network printer pointing the correct driver. Now the driver talks to the printer, and when i send something to printer to print the processing light comes on and never prints. Im lost and stuck at using the crappy PCL5c driver. Thanx for the help

    Hi mi109,

    I'm quite sure you are trying to use a driver V2 on a system V1.x
    In printer UI try to print the configuration page and check Server Info:
    EFI Fiery System 8e > V1.x
    EFI Fiery System 8e R2 > V2

    Only system 8e R2 supports 64bits

    Default password is "Fiery.1" (case sensitive)

    Use a browser (IP adress) to acess web tools and download the correct driver in download tab.

    To upgrade your Controller H1 to System 8e R2 contact your Canon provider.

    Regards

    Thank you so much for the help. I cant believe the solution to my problem was so simple. Now When im in the webui and i click the launch configuration button and the java window pops up i enter the password correctly and the windows stops loading and it does this on three different browsers. Any ideas on that?

    Hi mi109,

    You need to install "Java".
    Why don't you download and install Command Worstation 5 from here "www.efi.com/cws5" ?
    This tool allows you to manage your jobs, print queues, spot colors, etc
    Java is automaticaly installed as well.
