Cannon Image Runner c3170U

We are looking to purchase a Cannon Image Runner c3170u. We have a LAN with an IBM AS/400 on the LAN. We would like to print directly from the AS/400 to the Cannon Image Runner. My IBM vendor is telling me to make sure the Copier is IPDS capable. That there is a chip that fits into the Copier. Once the chip is installed, we can configure the copier as a normal printer on the AS/400.

Does that make sense? What is the recommended and easiest way to make the Cannon Image Runner c3170u appear as a device to the AS/400?

Thanks.

Thanks. An AS/400 is an IBM mid-range computer. It has had several name changes over the years (System I, iSeries and I beleive today they just call it an "I". At one time it was the most popular business computing system in the world. You can set up partitions to run just about any OS in the world. (Linux, Unix, Oracle, AIX, OS/400) You cannot set up a Windows partition however.

Anyway, thanks for the advice. The copier is supposed to be delived tomorrow, network and IPDS capable.

I am not sure what a AS/400 is, but I do know what chip they are asking about. It is called a Network boot Rom. It is like allowing the copier to be a printer. If you look in service mode under display version. It will have a "N" for networking and "C" for a stand alone copier- no printing. Also, some of the new copier come with it and have other options like faxing. Also, are you buying a new one or used? Also, are you going to use it alot? You may want to go with the c4080 or the faster model c5850 copies a minute. Take from me I work on all of them and the c3170c is not a work horse.

Waste toner


to change the waste toner on your IR 5055, stand directly in front of machine and look on the right hand side of it where the power switch is a black button on right hand sdie at the back and you will see 4 screws and a metal plate that will come off the waste toner bottle is in there just empty it out and refit to machine all will work, now on your IRC3170 just undo front door and you will see a clear bottle just undo the black screw and take out the bottle and you will see a couple of little clear windows in the bottle make sure you take them out and clean them before you emtpy the bottle, this is where the machines shines a light through it to tell if the bottle is full or not so make sure you have them clean. refit the bottle and all will be ok

Waste toner


Turn off the copier. Remove the lower left panel on the left side of the copier, then pull out the plastic container and empty it. Reinstall the container and cover then turn the machine back on.
