Workcentre 7232 and Mac OSX (UserID -> PCL)

Hello,

 

We have a WorkCentre 7232 at the office that work using credential (UserID is required) and i'm in charge to connect to it 4 Mac 10.5.x.

 

I have uploaded the drivers to find out that it will only work if Postcript module is installed.

 

As it is not the case, i have to use PCL6 or PCL5c. (http://www.office.xerox.com/latest/W42SS-01.PDF)

 

I have installed and test (get an error 016-757 = The entered password is wrong.) but there is no dialog i couldn't find o enter the UserID using PCL drivers on Mac.

 

I'm starting to get a little upse.

Things should go more smoothly especially if the printer box says "Mac Compatible" !

 

As anyone a lead that can help to solve my issue ?

 

Thanks

Re: Workcentre 7232 and Mac OSX (UserID -> PCL)

that error code is indeed related to auditron  / not entered the correct code

 

but you cant use PCL drivers on mac, you need to have the PS optional kit onboard, otherwise it wont work...

Thanks Fabio for your answer.

 

I had previous bad experience with Xerox (same unconsideration than Samsung about Mac user), that won't help.

Macs have never been able to print with a PCL language, they are 100% PS, so many times a sales rep will ask if you use macs when selling a machine (To ensure the proper options get enabled). Fixing this is simply a matter of having a PS Interpreter installed on your machine.

 

Many customers use this machine for office printing, and only need PCL/PCL6 Languages, so we offer this to better suit their needs. For customers such as yourself, you require a bit more robust print engine, and simply need to get the PS Addon.

Upon re-reading your initial post, it actually sounds like you do have the PS Kit. Normally you'd get a different error if you had no PS-kit.

 

If you're getting the error reports saying Bad Account ID, you need to create a Preset for accounting on the Mac in the Print Dialog. I wouldn't normally link to non-xerox pages, but this is an EXCELLENT guide and I really cannot take credit.
