privileges.

==================================================================

12. CAPT Windows Firewall Utility

If you are using an operating system equipped with Windows Firewall, 
such as Windows XP Service Pack 2, as a print server, communication 
with the client computers is controlled by Windows Firewall. The 
[CAPT Windows Firewall Utility] is a utility for configuring Windows 
Firewall to unblock or block this communication with the client 
computers.
The [CAPT Windows Firewall Utility] is located either in the 
[WF_UTIL] folder of the folder that is created when you uncompress 
the downloaded file, or in the [English] - [WF_UTIL] folder in the 
supplied CD-ROM.
Refer to "note_ex.pdf" for more details on the [CAPT Windows Firewall 
Utility].

==================================================================

13. About the Client-Side Settings for Using the Printer Sharing Function

If you are using Windows XP Service Pack 2 or another operating 
system equipped with Windows Firewall on the client side, configure 
the following settings. If you do not setup the following settings on 
the client side, the printer status may not display properly in the 
Printer Status Window and you may not be able to access some of the 
printer functions.
(1) Display the [Windows Firewall] ([Windows Firewall Settings] for 
    Windows Vista) dialog box.
    For Windows XP: From the [Start] menu, select [Control Panel], 
    and then click [Network and Internet Connections] -> [Windows

14. Running the Printer Status Window after Installing the Printer Driver 
    (Windows Vista)

If you do not restart the computer after installing the printer 
driver, the Printer Status Window may not run automatically when 
you print.
In this case, restart the computer or run the Printer Status Window 
manually.

==================================================================

15. Characters for the Printer Name (Windows Vista)

When an "@" character is used in the name of the printer, the printer 
will become unrecognizable by the operating system because of an 
invalid printer name thus disabling printing, operation and setup.

==================================================================

16. Access Permission to the Printer Properties (Windows Vista)

When you log on to an Administrator account that is different from 
the one used to install the printer driver, you cannot access the 
printer properties with Administrators permission.
To access the printer properties, right-click the icon for the printer, 
and then select [Run as administrator].

==================================================================

17. Printing Thin Lines (Windows Vista)

In certain applications, thickness of a line can be set to a value 
smaller than 1 pt but the actual thickness in the printout may be 
equivalent to that of a 1 pt line.

==================================================================

18. Specifying the IP Address of the Printer (Windows Vista)

If you specify the IP address that is being used by another device 
for the printer, the printer may not function properly.
In this case, turn off the device that is using the same IP address 
or remove the device from the network, and then specify an unused IP 
address for the printer using any of the following methods.
- Settings using NetSpot Device Installer
- Settings using the ARP/PING command
  (To execute the ARP/PING command, you need to log on to Windows as 
  a member of Administrators.)
- Settings using the Remote UI

==================================================================

19. Settings for Printing on Windows Vista (Windows Vista)

If you print without performing the settings, the data may not be 
printed as specified in the printer driver.
