we're encoutering problems with the latest os of WorkCentre 6605, version 201503160652.
On recenlty installed machines we cannot make Automatic Meter Reding work because when we try to enable it and click on test configuration now, machine says "please try again".
This is what we've tried to do:
Is there something else we can do? Is this a common and known issue of this firmware?
Did this happen immediately after updating the firmware or immediately after the time change?
There are at this time no reported outages.
Have there been any LAN changes at the location? Possibly a router?
AMR uses SNMP.
You need to ensure that ports 161,162 and 443 are open between the IP of the printer and https://dcs.support.xerox.com
Printers are new, they arrived with this firmware version and we set up theme as usual giving them a static IP address, valid DNS, correct Date and Time. They are in different offices with different routers. With older firmwares we didn't need to check these ports and the 6605 could communicate immediately. I will check SNMP but I think it's already active in both printers!
Assuming HTTPs was enabled, check the time again, if it is off by 3 minutes or more it will fail the Test Communication in CWIS.
Ok, I will check Http because time is already set as computers time which is synchronized with Internet.
But it seems that it even doesn't try to test communication as it immediately says "please try again" as soon as I click on test configuration...
Do a wireshark trace between the printer and the server, then PM me a location to retireve it and I will examine what is happening on the LAN to break it.
Or call Xerox.
