Purchased a pre-owned DC250 with fiery x3ety. This is all relatively new to me, but I do have a pretty good knowledge of some aspects.
At the present time, I have the Command Workstation on my [Windows 10] PC, and all connections secure, lights at the router and the fiery for network are on and steady.
Could not find the server on Command Workstation via search of IP range search. Plugged in a monitor to the Fiery to see what was up, and it seems that the system is stuck on "UNCOMPRESSING LINUX... Ok, BOOTING THE KERNEL".
I do not have the software CDs for this, but I do believe I need to reinstall the Fiery software. I could, of course be wrong.
Any direction would be tremendously appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can't use a monitor on a bustled Fiery, it is always in that state as it has no Window manager on its Linux OS.
Assuming it is connected via Crossover cable into the right port on the Fiery and the one on the copier, as well as by SCSI cable (big one, looks like an old Parallel cable, thumb screws and all)
Then the only way to get to its IP address is through the IOT (copier)
To do so, login as the admin (default user = 11111)
Go to System Settings > System Settings > Network Controller Settings > Network Settings > TCP/IP-IP Address and change it to match your LAN.
It will need to reboot when you exit out. If the Network Controller Settings option is not there, the Fiery needs to be reloaded, hopefully not,because I don't think EFI even sells the software anymore, and if they do, it is far from free. eBay would be your best bet there.
I have a similar issue on my C75. Seems like it doesn't boot fully
buecause on the printer screen the Fiery buttons come up but when i cick it tells me starting up please wait. But that is as far as it goes.
I have a similar porblem with a DC 252-x3ety, I have the disk and have reloaded the software, The netowrk connection works unitll the machine goes into energy saving mode overnight. Then is looses the connection again. Reloading will fix, temporaily. I have installed a new HDD and Lithium battery.
I'm wondering if I got a bad new battery, Obvisously, there is something being loaded into soft memory that is getting lost.
