Any user can upgrade the printer's base code. No tools are needed. The only requirements are a computer, the code file(s) needed, and a way of connecting the computer to the printer. However, it is strongly recommended that the person performing the upgrade be experienced with Windows and MS DOS operating systems and networking.
If you do not succeed in copying the file to the printer using a parallel connection, you can also try copying it over using a USB connection or via the network through an ftp command.
