Removing iMagePASS-C1 from Canon C3200 Printer

We have an older Canon irC3200 with a iMagePASS fiery attached.  The hard drive has failed on the fiery and would like to print directly to the printer and bypass the fiery.
The fiery has been removed as well as it's interface card and the printer has been configured with the proper ip and network settings.  I can ping the printer, but it continues to show "Offline" on our print server.

Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

I  personally dont know that machine, but I do know machines that can have external print controllers, like a fiery, that cannot print without the fiery even if they have a network card. Others need an optional internal printe controller if not using the external print controller (fiery, creo, ...).
From the information I was able to get regarding that machine you have two possibilities to use it as a printer, both are optional.
1 - Color Network Multi-PDL-A1
2 - imagePASS-C1 (fiery)
So I think that to use it without fiery you need the Color Network Multi-PDL-A1.
Do you know if the machine as that controller?
Maybe the best way to find out is asking your canon service provider.
