Technical Description


Printer Data Streams

The Infoprint 1572 MFP supports the following data streams:

  • PostScript 3 Emulation
  • Hewlett-Packard Company PCL 6 Emulation
  • PPDS Migration Tool
  • PDF v1.5 emulation

Fonts and Symbol Sets

The fonts in the PCL emulation are compatible with the fonts in the HP LaserJet 4550 and include nine additional fonts and many extra symbol sets to support extra languages and applications. Included in the PCL emulation are OCR-A, OCR-B and Code 3 of 9 barcode fonts. The fonts in the PostScript emulation are compatible with all 136 fonts in Adobe PostScript 3 and include 22 additional fonts.

Additional fonts can be downloaded to the MFP RAM, hard drive, or optional user flash card.

Included on the CD-ROM shipped with the MFP are screen fonts to match the MFP's resident scalable fonts. This CD also includes a variety of downloadable fonts for Hebrew and Arabic.

Support for the euro currency character is included in all applicable fonts for both the PostScript and PCL emulations. Twelve of the PCL symbol sets support the euro character including all seven Windows symbol sets.

The MFP supports Unicode printing with special UTF-8 encodings in both the PCL and PostScript emulations. UTF-8 encoding is a particular way to access characters that is very useful for fonts with large character sets. UTF-8 is used by our SAP printing solution.

Maximum Print Speed and Performance

The Infoprint 1572 MFP supports the maximum print speeds listed below. Actual performance depends on:

  • Interface to host (parallel, serial, USB or network)
  • Host system and application

Security Features

This product contains several standard and optional features and functions that improve or enhance the security of the device. See User Guide for more information.

Available MFP security features

Apply an administrative password to restrict unauthorized users from making changes to the MFP configuration.

Requires user authentication prior to performing sensitive operations such as scan-to-e-mail and scan-to-fax. This process that unauthorized individuals cannot use these functions.

Disable various device capabilities, including Copy, E-mail, FTP, Fax Send, Fax Receive, and Driver to Fax.

Disable all unneeded protocols and network communication paths by which the MFP can be configured.

MFP touch screen lock function

The MFP touch screen lock function disables the MFP functions such as copy and scan-to-email. This helps secure the MFP from unauthorized use when the office is idle or unattended. An administrator must unable the function and set the password for use with the function. Any user may then lock the MFP touch screen or unlock the touch screen using the password.

Setting security using the Embedded Web Server (EWS)

To enhance the security of network communications and MFP configuration, use the advanced security options. These features are available through the Web page of the MFP.

Setting the system password

Setting the system password protects configuration of the Embedded Web Server. A system password is also required for Secure mode and confidential communication with MVP.

Using the secure Embedded Web Server

The SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) allows for secure connections to the Web server within the print device. To connect to the Embedded Web Server more securely, connect to the SSL port instead of the default HTTP port. The SSL port connection will encrypt all Web server network communications between the PC and MFP.

Supporting SNMPv3 (Simple Network Management Protocol version 3)

SNMPv3 protocol allows for encrypted and authenticated network communications. It also lets the administrator select a desired level of security. Prior to use, at least one user name and password must be established from the settings page. To configure for SNMPv3 through the Embedded Web Server of the MFP:

Supporting IPSec (Internal Protocol Security)

IP Security protocol provides authentication and encryption of communications at the network layer allowing all application and network communications over the IP protocol to be secure. IPSec can be set up between the MFP and up to five hosts, using both IPV4 and IPV6.

Disabling ports and protocols

The TCP and UDP ports can be configured to one of three modes or values:

  • Disabled - Never allows network connections to this port
  • Secure and unsecure - Allows the port to remain open, even in Secure mode
  • Unsecured Only - Allows the port to only open when the MFP is not in Secure mode

Using 802.1x Authentication

802.1x port authentication allows the MFP to join networks that require authentication before allowing access. 802.1x port authentication can be used with the WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) feature of an optional external wireless print server to provide WPA-Enterprise security support.

Support for 802.1x requires the establishment of credentials for the MFP. The MFP must be known to the Authentication Server (AS). The AS will allow network access to devices presenting a valid set of credentials which typically involves a name/password combination and possibly a certificate. The AS will allow network access to the MFP presenting a valid set of credentials. The credentials can be managed by using the Embedded Web Server of the MFP.

Locking the operator panel menus

Operator Panel Menu Lockout allows creation of a PIN number and a choice of specific menus to lock. Each time a locked menu is selected, the user is prompted to enter the correct PIN at the operator panel. The PIN does not affect any access through the EWS.

Printing Lockout

Printing Lockout allows locking or unlocking of an MFP using an assigned PIN. When locked, every job the MFP receives will buffer to the hard disk. A user can print jobs only by entering the correct PIN on the operator panel. A PIN can be assigned through the Web page of the MFP.

Note:Back channel data will be processed while the MFP is locked. Reports such as users or event logs can be retrieved from a locked MFP.

Confidential Print Setup

Confidential Print Setup allows the designation of a maximum number of PIN entry attempts and allows setting an expiration time for print jobs. When a user exceeds a specific number of PIN entry attempts, all of the user's print jobs are deleted. When a user has not printed their jobs within a designated time period, the print jobs are deleted.

Encrypting the hard disk

Disk Encryption provides protection of sensitive data stored on internal hard disk drives in the event of unauthorized access to the hardware. When enabled, Disk Encryption uses 128 bit AES encryption to encrypt all data stored on the drive. This feature is disabled by default, and enabled through the Power On Configuration menu. When enabled or disabled, the entire drive is formatted, destroying any references to data that may have been stored previously.

Hard disk wiping

Hard disk wiping performs a multi-purpose overwrite of all sectors on the hard drive, mitigating the potential exposure risks for sensitive information. This feature is performed on a demand basis, and is accessed through the Power On Configuration menu.

Using the restricted server list function

The Restricted Server list lets a system support person restrict which hosts are allowed to communicate with the MFP over the network which prevents other hosts from managing and printing to the MFP.

Note:The Restricted Server List only restricts TCP traffic; it does not affect UDP traffic. The Restricted Server List supports up to ten host addresses or ten network addresses.

Digitally Signed Firmware Update Files

Upgraded firmware files from Lexmark are now signed with a digital signature, which verifies the source and authenticity of the updated code. This prevents a malicious user from creating and uploading to the MFP custom code that could intercept and expose potential confidential data.

Additional Media Guidelines

Follow the media guidelines below for successful printing:

Paper

  • Rough, highly textured, limp, or pre-curled papers will result in lower print quality and more frequent paper feed failures.
  • Colored papers must be able to withstand 220 deg C (446 deg F) fusing temperature.
  • Preprinted forms and letterheads should be selected using guidelines found in the printer User's Guide. The chemical process used in preprinting may render some papers unsuitable for use with these printers.
  • Unsuitable papers include multipart forms and documents; chemically treated papers; coated, synthetic and thermal papers; and preprinted papers requiring a high degree of registration.
  • Recycled paper less than 80g/sqm may cause unacceptable results.

Envelopes

  • All envelopes should be new, unused, and without package damage.
  • Envelopes with excessive curl or twist exceeding 6 mm, those stuck together, those with bent corners or nicked edges, or those that interlock should not be used.
  • Minimum weight: 75 g/m2 (20 lb.)
  • The following envelopes should not be used:
    • Envelopes with windows, holes, perforations, cutouts, or deep embossing.
    • Envelopes with metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars.
    • Envelopes with exposed flap adhesive when the flap is in the closed position.
    • For best results, printing on new 90 g/m2 (24 lb.) sulfite or 25% cotton bond envelopes is recommended.
    • Under high humidity conditions (over 60%), envelopes may seal during printing.

Transparencies

  • Use letter or A4-size sheets only.
  • Transparencies specifically designed for xerographic copy machines or laser printers may be used with the Infoprint 1572 MFP.
  • Transparencies can be printed but not scanned

Labels

Only occasional paper label use is supported.

Labels should be selected using guidelines found in the User's Reference, Complete Printer Reference, and tested for acceptability. VINYL AND POLYESTER LABELS ARE NOT SUPPORTED.

Guidelines for Scanner Document Feeder

The automatic document feeder is designed to handle most paper types. However, if you are unsure if your document will cause a jam in the automatic document feeder, we recommend that you scan it using the flatbed. The following cannot be properly fed by the automatic document feeder:

  • Paper with clip or staple attached
  • Paper with ink not totally dry
  • Paper with inconsistent thickness, such as envelopes
  • Paper with wrinkles, curls, folds or tears
  • Tracing paper, coated paper, carbonless paper
  • Paper that is too large or too small (use flatbed instead)
  • Items other than papers, such as cloth, metal or OHP film
  • Notched paper
  • Paper with an odd (non-rectangular) shape
  • Photographic paper
  • Paper with perforations on its side
  • Very thin paper

Network Compatibility

The internal and external network adapters support Network Plug and Print 2.0 on Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 systems.

The Ethernet and Token-Ring print servers and standard Ethernet connections support the following protocols:

  • TCP/IP
  • Novell (IPX/SPX including NetWare Directory Services)
  • AppleTalk**
  • LexLink** (DLC/LLC)

The TCP/IP standard set of application services including DHCP, WINS, SNMP (industry standard printer MIB), http, lpr/lpd, ftp, tftp, ping, finger, telnet, bootp and rarp. The following protocols are also supported:

  • IPP: Internet Printing Protocol
  • SLP: Service Location Protocol
  • NTP: Network Timing Protocol

The printer with standard Ethernet internal print servers and external print servers support a Resident Web page with Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 or later and Netscape Navigator 4.5 or later for Windows 95/98, Windows Me, Windows 2000 or Windows NT.

The remote operator panel is available from internal and external print servers.

Direct USB printing and scanning

Direct USB connectivity allows individuals to print or scan PDF, TIFF, and JPEG files directly to the MFP using an approved USB flash memory device. Through the MFP's USB Direct interface located on the MFP operator panel, a user can simply insert the USB flash memory device, select the appropriate file and choose to print the file on this specific MFP. Similarly, the user can choose to send scanned files from the MFP to a USB flash memory device .

Direct USB requires a supported USB flash memory device. The following USB flash memory devices has been tested and approved for this product:

  • Lexar JumpDrive 2.0 Pro (256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB)
  • SanDisk Cruzer mini (256 MB, 512 MB, 1 GB)

While other USB flash drives have not been tested and therefore cannot be approved, these products may function if the storage device meets the following qualifications:

  • Supports the USB 2.0 specification, specifically supporting the Full-Speed mode
  • Use the FAT file system

In addition to the above hardware requirements, PDF files used with Direct USB printing must support PDF standard version 1.5 or earlier. PDF files with restricted printing permissions or encryption are not supported.

MarkVision Messenger enhances administrators' quality for service and improves end-user productivity and satisfaction.

NetPnP

NetPnP senses when a new IBM printer is attached to the network and automatically creates a shared printer object on the Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000 system. Furthermore, NetPnP notifies end-users via e-mail that the new network printer is available for printing. Designed for Windows NT 4.0 and Windows 2000 environments, Net PnP makes the Infoprint 1572 MFP available to end-users within seconds of network attachment.

Software Installation and Distribution Tools

The IBM Script Install utility provides a very powerful method to install or uninstall MFPprinter software in Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 environments. Through the use of the Script Install utility, System Administrators can easily perform mass rollouts of IBM printers/MFPs by creating custom scripts to perform local or remote printer/MFP software installations on end user workstations.

When combined with the Driver Profiler utility, I/T shops can centrally create and deploy custom printing environments for each remote location. Together, these utilities drastically reduce the time required to install MFP software in a distributed environment.

Printing Solution for Novell systems

The IBM Printing Solution for Novell systems offers administrators more control over IBM printers/MFPs. This all-inclusive package provides support for both NDPS and iPrint printing systems on NetWare 5.1, 6.0 and 6.5 servers and NOES for NetWare servers.

Details on Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe Emulation

Product Overview:

  • The SCS/TNe or IPDS configuration settings can be changed using MarkNet print server's resident web server, a browser and the printer's IP address.
  • For IPDS emulation printing, the capture of outline fonts (LF3) is now supported.

These affordable Cards for I PDS and SCS/TNe provide configuration flexibility and compatibility for AFP/IPDS or SCS printing over TCP/IP to LAN printers. These Cards for IPDS and SCS/TNe are compatible with IBM mainframe or IBM iSeries applications that generate SCS (LU1) output or with applications that output AFP/IPDS through Print Services Facility (PSF).

IPS continues to make it easy for IS/IT managers to have an affordable printing solution in a distributed network or on a LAN for applications or software that generate AFP/IPDS or SCS. This includes:

  • PDF417 2D bar code, Data Matrix, MaxiCode 2D bar code support, QR code 2D barcode
  • Using AFP/IPDS and PSF, capture fonts to hard disk or to flash memory resulting in reduced network traffic over LAN, coaxial or twinaxial connections.
  • Supports TN3270E or TN5250E SCS (LU1) over the LAN using TCP/IP with Telnet.
  • No changes to host applications.
  • Supports emulation of common IPDS and SCS printers.
  • Additional or new remote controllers with twinax or coax cabling are unnecessary. However, twinax and coax connections continue to be available using the Coax/Twinax Adapter for SCS.
  • One LAN printer can print LAN (PostScript, PCL, etc) and mainframe or iSeries documents (AFP/IPDS, SCS).

With a card and the standard Ethernet network port or a MarkNet print server using TCP/IP, the printer becomes an host workstation printer capable of printing AFP/IPDS or SCS documents from an iSeries or System/390 computer.

With the appropriate host software and one of these options, the printer emulates an IBM mainframe or iSeries host printer. See the compatibility section for details.

With the TN3270E and TN5250E extended Telnet protocol support in these options, the printer emulates one TN3270E printer session and up to 4 TN5250E printer sessions using the LU1 SCS data stream over TCP/IP. This is supported directly from an iSeries or from a mainframe using TCP/IP or through any TN3270E capable gateway that supports TN3270E according to RFC 2355. The DSC/DSE or SCS data streams over LU3 or LU0 are not supported. The Telnet protocol function is only supported with through the standard Ethernet network port or with the MarkNet N2000 print servers. See the compatibility section for more details.

For IPDS emulation, the card supports resident scalable fonts and 300, 600, 1200 image quality or 1200 dpi print resolutions. The resolution is selected through an IPDS MENU setting. This setting determines the print resolution of IPDS text, graphics, bar code, scalable image and scalable font data.

The printer can be configured to take advantage of additional RAM, and when attached to a LAN through the standard Ethernet port or a MarkNet print server, can save IPDS resources to improve performance for complex IPDS print jobs with host resources such as fonts, overlays or page segments.

The IPDS emulation supports the IPDS data and resource towers. SBCS fonts can now be downloaded, captured and saved to hard disk or flash memory in the printer. The US Postal Bar code POSTNET font and the Euro currency symbol are supported within IPDS.

The Euro currency symbol is also supported for the SCS, PostScript and PCL 6 emulations.

Fonts

AFP/IPDS Font and Typestyle Support:

The Card for IPDS supports resident scalable fonts. The font complement with 12 typestyles supports the IBM Font Collection (Core Int erchange Scalable Font Sets - Courier, Times New Roman and Helvetica faces).

The following languages are supported:

  • Latin 1: Afrikaans, Belgian (French and Dutch), Brazilian Portuguese, Canadian English, Canadian French, Catalan, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Latin American Spanish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish (Castillian), Swedish, Swiss (German, French and Italian), United Kingdom English, United States English
  • Latin 2/ROECE: Albanian, Croatian, Czech, East German, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian
  • Latin 3, 4, 5 and 6: Maltese, Turkish, Estonian, Greenlandic, Lappish, Latvian, Lithuanian
  • Greek
  • Cyrillic for: Bulgarian, Byelorussian, Macedonian, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Ukrainian.

The font complement for the IBM Coordinated Scalable Font Set provides support for Latin 1 languages in 3 Letter Gothic (medium, bold and italic) and 3 Prestige (medium, bold and italic) scalable typestyles. Scalable OCR-A and OCR-B typestyles are supported.

The following fonts are supported using bitmaps: APL 12, Boldface PS, Boldface Italic PS, OCR-A 10, OCR-B 10 and Prestige PS. The OCR bitmap fonts have different FGIDs than the scalable font versions.

The IBM 4028 Compatibility Font set consists of 22 fixed pitch typestyles supported by bitmap fonts. Times Roman typestyles (13) are created from Times New Roman scalable typestyles of the same weight and style.

The IBM 3812/3816 Compatibility Font set consists of 35 typestyles supported by bitmap fonts at 240 dpi.

Font Capture

Fonts can also be captured dynamically and saved (cached) to hard disk or flash memory in the printer. A captured font then appears as a printer resident font. If many fonts are used in the jobs that are printed, capturing fonts and saving them in the printer will decrease network traffic on busy networks.

PSF defines fonts as either public or private. In order to capture a font, it must be marked as eligible and public. A private font is not eligible to be captured.

Note:Do not mark sensitive fonts such as signatures and MICR fonts as eligible to be captured. Check the font licensing information before a font is made eligible for capture.

If a font is to be captured, the appropriate files for the coded font or character set and code page resources must all be marked.

The printer must also be defined as capable to capture fonts in PSF. For bitmap fonts, the font resolution of the font captured must match the resolution of the emulated printer for it to be recognized by the printer as a printer resident font. For example, the IBM 3812 and 3816 printer emulations require 240 dpi fonts. The IBM 4028 printer emulation requires 300 dpi fonts.

iSeries

On the iSeries, Font capture is supported by OS/400 V5R1 or later. To define the printer as capable to capture, in the PSF configuration (CRTPSFCFG/CHGPSFCFG), set FNTCAPTURE (*YES).

Eligible fonts must be marked. Display the font attributes to identify marked fonts (DSPFNTRSCA). Verify that *YES is specified for the Font Capture attribute. Use Create Font Resource (CRTFNTRSC) to mark font resources from other systems. Use Change Font Resource (CHGFNTRSC) to mark fonts that are not marked as eligible.

For a font to be eligible for capture, it must have non zero fields for FGID and GCSGID. Any fonts captured and saved in the printer's hard disk or flash memory are saved across instances of the writer.

Mainframe (OS/390 or z/OS)

Font capture is supported by PSF for OS/390 or z/OS. Use APSRMARK to mark eligible fonts if they are not already marked. The IBM Font Collection fonts are already marked as eligible for capture.

SCS Font and Typestyle Support

The SCS emulation uses the default resolution set using the Quality menu from the printer's operator panel. The SCS emulation in the card uses PCL fonts from the printer firmware. If the printer is set to 600 dpi, then all SCS data is printed with 600 dpi PCL fonts. It is possible to imbed PCL and PJL commands into the SCS data stream and pass them to the printer utilizing ASCII transparency.

On the iSeries, fonts can be selected by specifying the FGID (Font Global Identifier) or by characters per inch (CPI). With IBM mainframes, only CPI font selection is possible.

A parameter in the SCS data stream (Final Form Text (Level 2) Document Content Architecture (FFT (L2) DCA)) Page Presentation media (PPM) command is used to control Duplex printing.

These 6 fonts are included in SCS emulation as 300 dpi bitmap fonts: OCR-B (3), Boldface Italic (155), Boldface (159), Essay (160), Essay Bold (163) and Document (175).

Compatibility

For the Card for IPDS and SCS/TNe, IPDS is supported under the IPDS MENU settings and SCS is supported under the SCS/TNe MENU settings.

Support Notes:

  • Microcode updates and User's Guides are available from the IPS web site.
  • See the appropriate User's Guide for configuration instructions.
  • When the printer is emulating an IPS printer, the function supported depends on the host software.
