Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a Fiery 1 X-12 Server connected to a DocuColor 12 printer.
I have used XP, Vista 32 bit, and Windows 7 32 and 64 bit.
The only one I found that works is Vista 32 bit. Windows 7 does not have drivers that will work for the servier. There is one for mine, but it did work for a limited time only on certain softwares Print Shop, ect....
If you go to the Xerox web site it is possible the driver may not be there for your operating system. I do not know which one you have.
XP does work the best so far as far as I know. As time progresses the old, and very old computers do not have updated drivers in order for them to work. They will not be ugraded, they are too old.
Find a driver in the Xerox Site, find the best and closest driver client to the XP version and install them. It might be two or three.
You can have a install Xerox menu once you download it and install it. You are on a good way to make this work.
When you finally do the tcip install, print to the server and see if the Doc 12 prints right away. If it does not check the server to see if the file is sitting in there. Make sure you set up the server so that it can capture your files, the server takes it and prints it up automaticly. You can make a folder on the server so you can make it print to a "Hold" que.
When you finish installing these, when you print to the server, the Doc 12 should be printing the test print page.
I know there are many other avenues in order to check the connection to the server and there are other "talented and Know how Individuals" in this field of expertise. One good source is to call the local Xerox Sales people, they might have anaylist around with a good network of people that can have answers to thiese unique types of problems.
One thing to remember is this machine is old, and for the most there are many Xerox people who have worked in this specific area in the field that have retired and are long gone.
This Xerox Doc 12 is a very good printer and has been one of the best in quality and realiablility.
This color copier will be very hard to beat and one of the "Best Models Xerox has ever had.
One good thing about this model is, you can still get a service contract with Xerox, and it is worth the cost.

Are these computers and the Xerox Docucolor 12 printer connected to a switch (NOT A CHEAP Ehrernet hub)?
If it's a switch,then reboot it (during non-business hour) to clear the MAC address table.......just is case it's full.
Check the "print server" computer for drop packets info.
PING with high packet size with -t
keep pinging and do a print with graphic to the Xerox Docucolor 12 printer.
Do you have beyond
384-MB system memory
512-MB frame buffer memory
Is the 40-GB Ultra ATA/66 hard drive (or whatever you got in there now) has enough free space to handle the incoming print.
Ping the Xerox Docucolor 12 printer and do a test print to check for packet loss.
If I come across more information the I will append to this post.

This happens on occasion, reboot the RIP server. You are definitely communicating but for some reason the RIP server has stopped responding. After you have rebooted the server make sure RIP is running on it, then try to print again. Should work fine.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
