How to handle the license option of which multiple functions are


integrated to 1 license:
Conventionally in the Send option, in case of integration of multiple functions into 1 license
option, multiple license certificates for each function had been packed with the machine.
Inactivation of the license transfer had been available for each function.
Such license option product as [UFR II+PCL] or [PCL+PS] has 1 integrated license certificate.
Registration of 1 license information concurrently activates multiple functions such as [UFR
II+PCL] or [PCL+PS].
Inactivation of the license transfer inactivates the transfer of all the activated printer options
collectively.
No separate transfer inactivation is available.
Separate inactivation of the license from the service mode screen results in the NG message.

Notabilia with regards to the license transfer inactivation:


In the standard option settings for the host machine, due to the lack of transfer inactivation
information, no license transfer to the other host machine of the same model is available.

can be transferred to the host machine B.

How to confirm the activated printer option license:


The options displayed by selecting [counter confirmation key > device configuration
confirmation] for the users in the operation panel are individual functions (such as UFR II+
PCL), not the names of the purchased options.
Consequently, the license certificate is the only way to see the combination of options.
Enter the service mode level 2 and go to the service mode described below. Then the license
condition is displayed and transfer inactivation can be executed.

This function is featured mainly to print prn files output from PDL drivers. The device
processes text files and the like as it receives data in LPR (and does not properly print
depending on settings.) The device of PostScript-compatible model can print PDF files.

FTP Printing

The following shows a command specification example, which you will connect the device of

This device provides a FTP server for receiving print data. The device can accept print jobs
sent in FTP from client PCs. This is called FTP printing, a new feature first employed on iRC
6800. To use this feature, the FTP Print option must be selected. It is selected by default.
You can access the option by pressing Ad Func, System Settings, Network Settings, TCP/
IP Settings, and FTP Print Settings buttons. In FTP Print Settings screen, only one pair of a
user name and password can be entered for the user who can log in to the FTP server. No
settings are made for both of the fields by default.

Commands
The FTP server complies with the RFC 959 -- File Transfer Protocol -- but provides only
printing function. Thus the server does not support other functions required as a RFC 959
compliant server. The commands available for the FTP client are "user," "password," "bin,"
"put," "bye," "hash," and "help." There is no use of other commands since the server does
not provide functions other than printing. The following lists the notes to use the commands.
To send print data with the command "put," set the mode to the binary mode using the
command "bin." In the ascii mode, the data cannot be sent with the command "put."

provided to change the port.
The control port time-out is set to 300 seconds. You need to re-connect to the server if you
have left the connection for 300 seconds or more after logging in. The data port time-out is

Secured Print Jobs


Overview:
Secured Print is the function that a password is provided to the PDL(UFR II and PCL, PS)
print job and it is sent to the device. Then, it is rasterized on the device side, saved in the
image server and output by entering the password from the device's panel. This function is
used when dealing with the documents which you do not want other people to see, such as
confidential documents.
a) Password is provided.
In order to conduct the Secured Print, the printer driver requires the user to enter the
password from GUI. This password is provided to the print job and it is sent to the device.
This function can be conducted by using CPCA protocol(UFR II and PCL, PS).
b) Job execution and pending
PDL print job sent to the device as the Secured Print job is compiled on the job queue like the
normal PDL print job. Then, it is rasterized by PDL interpreter, saved in the image server as
the document image file and becomes pending here. However, all job information, such as
paper supply/output, the number of copies and finishing information remains.
c) Job started by entering the password
If the Secured Print job is pending, the display indicating the pending state appears on the
job status screen of the panel. If you select this job from the panel, you are required to enter
the password. When the password you entered is same as the password provided from the
printer driver, the pending job will be started. When the password is different, the job is treated
as an error, so it is not started and it remains in the pending state. Entering the password to
start the job cannot be executed before the Secured Print job transfers to the pending state.
d) Output
The started Secured Print job is output to the printer engine with the top priority. This top

by operating from the status screen of the print job. Regarding these operations, the device
side does not distinguish from operations of the normal PDL job. That is, the password entry
is required only when the job is output. If you interrupt or restart the job during outputting, the
password setting and matching are not conducted.
f) Automatically delete of Secured Print Jobs
When Secured Print Job is continuing being suspended for a long time, apparatus deletes a
job automatically.
There are options for automatic job deletion time -- 1, 2, 3, 6, 12, and 24 hours. With a view of
security and memory usage, no option longer than 1 day is available. The elapsed time starts
after all the processes for the PDL data and the rendering for all the image data, for which
Secured Print is specified, are finished.
g) Specifications and Limitations on Secured Print Jobs
The limitations on Secured Print jobs are listed as follows.
Once data of a Secured Print job is printed, it is immediately deleted and cannot be printed
any more.
If the power for the controller is shut down, unprinted data of a Secured Print job is deleted
from the printer.
All the job information, represented by the paper source and output information, information
of the number of copies, and finishing information, cannot be changed on the printer.
If the entire raster information for a Secured Print job cannot be stored in the image server
(hard disk drive) due to insufficient memory, the job results in an error, to be deleted.
Up to 50 Secured Print jobs of image data being rendered and left unprinted can be stored.

priority means that if the jobs can be changed in priority order, the Secured Print job can
be prioritized. This job is proceeded according to all job information specified by the printer
driver, etc., such as paper supply/output, the number of copies and finishing information.
When the processing is completed and all documents are output, the documents and job
information stored in the image server are deleted.
e) Operations for Secured Print jobs
Like other print jobs, Secured Print jobs can be deleted, interrupted, restarted and promoted

gutter settings.
The image is shifted to the width value specified for gutter, making a margin. If the shift
causes the image to overflow from the printable area, the overflowing area is missing from
the print results. The overflowing image will not be reduced to fit into the printable area.

Image Compression
The PDL data sent to the iR C host machine from the printer driver on the PC is converted
into the image data by page and stored in HDD.
At this time, the images are compressed so as to shorten the internal processing time.
The high compression ratio enables the rapid processing, as the higher the data compression
ratio the lighter the amount of load for processing.
The low compression ratio enables the reproduction close to the original.
This compression method can be selected from the printer driver.

WSD
WSD(Web Services on Devices)
WSD is supported on Windows Vista by default.
It is the protocol to control devices via Web service.
The major features are:
1. Printer driver auto-installation
Can install a printer driver by getting the device ID through device search on network using
Vista's standard tool (NetworkExplore/AddPrinterWizard).
2. End job notification
When the device receives a print job, it issues the event notification upon completing paper
delivery. Vista can detect End job with this notification so that Canon utility is no longer
needed.

Trapping
Trapping is the processing to prevent the image deterioration due to
plate displacement by overlapping the surrounding color of target pixel
on the target pixel.
The setting of the trapping is possible from LUI.

Setting Procedure
1. In user mode: [Printer Settings] > [Quality] > [Advanced Settings] > [Trapping]
(It is set to OFF in default. When it is set to ON, initial setting value is Trapping Width 1
Trapping Density 100%.)

F-2-23

3. Set Trapping Density (Trapping Density is decided evenly for C, M, Y and K). It can be
specified from 25, 50, 75 or 100%.

F-2-22

2. Set Trapping Width (Trapping Width is decided evenly for right to left and up and down).
Pixel can be specified from 1, 2 or 3 pixels.

F-2-24

Service Mode UI
Following settings are possible in service mode.
Threshold value of target pixel density that Trapping is executed for per C,M,Y,K. [maximum

Service Mode Item Used to Invalidate a License for Transfer to a Different Device (Level 2)

Possible Situation
A license may be used on a different device through transfer, as when replacing the device
at the end of a lease agreement. To do so, the user must first invalidate the existing license
by performing a set of steps referred to as "invalidation of a license" using service mode. At
times, both source and target of transfer may be the same device, and a license therefore
may also be invalidated only temporarily. It is important to note that the user must contact
the Sales Company to make a license good regardless of whether it has been invalidated
intentionally or inadvertently.

Invalidation Procedure
Invalidation consists in invalidating the license in service mode and generating an invalidation
certificate that proves the completion of invalidation. Invalidation may take place for individual
optional functions, and a specific function becomes no longer available as soon as an
invalidation certificate is issued. The user contacts the Sales Company and provides the
following: the invalidation certificate, the device serial number of the source of transfer, the
device serial number of the target of transfer, reason of transfer. In response, the Sales

To invalidate an option for transfer, select it, and type in '0' under B; then, click [OK] so that
the option will be invalidated and an invalidation certificate will be issued.
