Issue the setup utility to start the InfoPrint Manager Installer. On AIX the InfoPrint Manager Installer installs InfoPrint Manager for AIX, including an InfoPrint Manager server and an InfoPrint Manager AIX client, or the InfoPrint Manager AIX client alone.

On Linux, the InfoPrint Manager installer installs the InfoPrint Manager server, clients are installed using rpm commands against desired packages. For more details about installing Linux clients, consult RICOH InfoPrint Manager for Linux: Getting Started.

The AIX client allows users to enter InfoPrint Manager commands on the command line for transmission to the InfoPrint server, which can be on another AIX system. The AIX client has no graphical user interface.

Note: You can install the InfoPrint Manager server, InfoPrint Manager AIX client, or InfoPrint Manager Linux client in any of these languages:
  • English
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Spanish
If the InfoPrint Manager AIX client, InfoPrint Manager Linux client, and server do not use the same language, the InfoPrint Manager server must run in English.


The setup utility uses these flags:

-c (AIX only)
Invokes the InfoPrint Manager Installer to install only the InfoPrint Manager AIX client.
