I just wanted to add my experience thus far:
We have enabled Xerox Standard Accounting for pretty much every service the machine provides, and it works flawlessly with Windows PCs.
WIth OS X 10.7 (I haven't attempted the 10.6 machines), however, it seems any changes I make to the accounting settings are not saved when I print again. Furthermore, it appears these changes have to be made in every application, each time I print--these settings should be configurable through the PRINT DRIVER, similiar to Windows, not through the application.
This methodology seems incorrect if you ask me.
I spoke to Xerox technical support with regards to my issue and they advised me "it has to do with the OS X operating system itself, and the responsibility does not fall on Xerox, but rather Apple."
Has ANYONE discovered a workaround?
I'm waiting to bet you will want to setup a Preset for your Xerox machine. That way it keeps you settings and you do not have to keep changing them.
How do you save the accounting settings in OSX. It makes me set the settings everytime I go to print. I have checked the boxes to prompt me for the User ID and the Account ID, but when I go to print again these settings are erased and I have to enter them again.
