    Hi All,

    We have just installed a second QMDI Classic in our shop and would like to run this and our other QMDI Classic off the same RIP.

    We are running a Navigator 8.0 RIP. How do I go about setting up both presses to run on a common RIP?

    Could anyone please assist with this?

    Regards

    Shawn

    Hello,

    I know this is a reply to a very old post by myself however, for many years now we have been running 3 QMDI's with individual RIPS per machine. We would now very much like to set up all 3 machines to run off a single RIP.

    Please could you advise on how we should go about doing this?

    Kind Regards

    Shawn
