IMPORTANT:  Auto Supplies Replenishment (ASR) requires device connectivity. If a device loses connectivity, ASR will cease and the customer will need to place manual supplies orders. Once connectivity is reestablished, the process for automatic delivery of supplies is re-initiated in Europe with no further customer intervention. In US and Canada, ASR will resume once a manual order (phone or web) is placed after reconnection. For questions regarding ASR, contact your regional metered supplies help desk.

IMPORTANT: The Fiery Controller must be configured for communication before Remote Services can be enabled on the device if the Fiery is connected to the machine in the Direct mode (without the Network Switch option). The Fiery’s connection method is indicated on the device’s configuration page.  Follow the appropriate initial steps based on the controller configuration for your device, then proceed to the Enable Remote Services instructions.

The following procedure is used when the Fiery Controller is connected to the machine in the Direct mode (without the Network Switch option).  The device’s IP address is100.100.100.101.

  1. Connect to the Fiery, either by entering the IP address of the Fiery in a web browser, or by accessing the Command Workstation (if installed).
  2. Select the Configure tab and then Select the Launch Configure button. You may be prompted to run Java.  If a Security Warning message is displayed, select Don’t Block.
