I'm setting up a new Windows 7 x64 to to send jobs to our 242. When I used what Windows 7 discovered, it kept telling me it could not connect. I went to setting them up by directly pointing to the IP address. That was a bit better, but it didn't like the printer drivers coming from the machine. So, finally I used the printer driver I got from the Xerox downloads. I got that to work, but none of the print jobs are getting the correct date/time in the Fiery. They all show 12/31/2002.
One thing I wasn't sure about in the process, was Windows 7 keeps saying it doesn't recognize the device type.
Then there is nothing in the list for Xerox that looks like it could be correct. There is a Fuji Xerox DocuColor in the list . Could my problem be I need ot use one of those instead of the Generic Network Card setting? Is there something else I'm missing?
Do the install again with the same manual method, but this time at the point in your screenshot, choose Custom > Settings
Make it LPR and set the queue Name to print (all lower case)
LPR byte counting is not enabled, SNMP can be, but it will work better in most cases if it is not
Obviously the Port name doesn't matter, and the IP address will be your printers (fiery) IP
