JPEG Library
Independent JPEG Group's free JPEG software
-------------------------------------------
This package contains C software to implement JPEG image encoding, decoding, and transcoding. JPEG is a standardized compression method
for full-color and gray-scale images.
The distributed programs provide conversion between JPEG "JFIF" format and image files in PBMPLUS PPM/PGM, GIF, BMP, and Targa file
formats. The core compression and decompression library can easily be reused in other programs, such as image viewers. The package is highly
portable C code; we have tested it on many machines ranging from PCs to Crays.
We are releasing this software for both noncommercial and commercial use. Companies are welcome to use it as the basis for JPEG-related
products. We do not ask a royalty, although we do ask for an acknowledgement in product literature (see the README file in the distribution for
details). We hope to make this software industrial-quality --- although, as with anything that's free, we offer no warranty and accept no liability.
For more information, contact jpeg-info@jpegclub.org.

Assigning an IP Address
An IP address is a unique number that consists of four sections that are delimited by a period and can include up to
three digits in each section, for example, 111.222.33.44.
You can select the IP mode from Dual Stack, IPv4, and IPv6. If your network supports both IPv4 and IPv6, select
Dual Stack.
Select the IP mode of your environment, and then set IP address, subnet mask (for IPv4 only), and gateway address.
CAUTION:
Assigning an IP address that is already in use can cause network performance issues.
NOTE:
Assigning an IP address is considered as an advanced function and is normally done by a system administrator.
NOTE:
When you assign an IP address manually in IPv6 mode, use the Dell Printer Configuration Web Tool. To display the Dell
Printer Configuration Web Tool, use the link-local address. To confirm the link-local address, print a printer settings report and
check the Link-Local Address under Network (Wired) or Network (Wireless).
For details about how to print a printer settings report, see "Report / List."

Checking the Shared Printer
To confirm that the printer is properly shared:
Ensure that the printer object in the
Printers
,
Printers and Faxes
, or
Devices and Printers
folder is shared. The
shared icon is shown under the printer icon.
From a network client, browse
Network
or
My Network Places
. Find the host name of the server and the shared
name you assigned to the printer.
After you have checked that the printer is shared, use methods such as Windows Point and Print to use the shared
printer from a network client.
NOTE:
If the OS bit editions (32/64 bit edition) differ between a print server and a client computer, you need to manually add the
printer driver for the client computer edition on the server. Otherwise, the printer driver cannot be installed on the client
computer using methods such as Point and Print. For example, if the print server runs on Windows Vista
®
32-bit edition, while
the client computer runs on Windows
®
7 64-bit edition, follow the procedures below to additionally install the printer driver for
64-bit client on the 32-bit server.
