I'm to buy a color printer. A profesional one.
I need to send to the printer pdf files from a server in internet. No direct connection to this printer.
The pdf to be sent will have personal data so I can't use an thierd email system.
What I think I need is a printer with a ftp server in it. The sending server will connect to the ftp server on the printer, put the pdf in a folder in the printer and anything in this folder has to be printed immediately.
Does Xerox have a printer with this specification?. My local dealer has been unable to answer this question.
Thanks for your atention.
I don't think there is a printer that can do it that is made by Xerox (I checked ConnectKey/Discovery/VersaLink/AltaLink and FujiXerox controllers), but all EFI Fiery rips do it that I have come across, as seen here:
Current Generations (CWS > Server > Configure > Job Submission > FTP Printing)
Older Generations (CWS5>Server > Configure > Network > Services > FTP)
I know a Freeflow Print server also has the ability, purely because I know that is how Production Print submits via the Freeflow Makeready setup, so it would work too, but I think it just works natively to the default queue. (You can simply enable FTP, then create an FTP user and submit with its credentials)
Finally my local dealer has installed me a Phaser 7500 basically because i have read on the System Administrator Guide "You can use FTP to send print-ready files to the printer".
Incredibly they don't know how to set it up!!!!!
Following the instructions on this manual I can find the Properties tag on the CWIS but the Protocols folder doesn't appears, also I'm not prompted for the username and password.
How can I make this happen. Thanks.
Is there a way I can activate and configure the ftp server on this machine?
Use a different browser, I would actually suggest Internet Explorer, and you will be able to see the properties option.
On my PC, it looks like this in IE
But looks like this in Firefox
