GCC 12/600 Not found under Leopard (on wireless network)

Hi, my GCC Elite 12/600 has been working fine under Tiger. It's connected to the router with an ethernet cable and my MacBook Pro is connected wireless.
When I upgrade the operating system to Leopard I can no longer "see" the printer. If I connect the MacBook to the network via ethernet, and switch Appletalk on for Ethernet (and hence off for airport) it seems to work fine.
I have the same problem on a MacBook and a G4 laptop – both are running Leopard.
Any suggestions welcomed! Thank you.

Same problem.
Plus I am trying to find a legitimate download for a 12/600 printer driver that will let me print from my new MacBook Pro running Jaguar.

Hi, I can't use the printey GCC Elite, XL 20/600, after I have installed system Mac OS X 10.6.6 I can't see the printer now. I tried to use drive from the GCC site, but It was nuless. What I can...

you should connect using ethernet. (probably no other way at this point, unless you found some crazy adapter, i guess)

click the apple logo in the upper left corner.

select system preferences:

select network:

select ethernet:

you have two choices, you can either write down the computers IP address and use that in the printer. or you can manually set your own here by choosing "Use DHCP with manual address"

if you already have a bunch of stuff networked, you probably shouldn't change your IP. but if the current IP isnt one you can set your printer to, then you'll have to change it here.

lets say your computer IP is set to

in printer your printer menu:

go to interfaces:

go to tcp/ip (make sure it's enabled): ip class C, subnet mask FFFO, go to IP address

set to (it needs to be almost the same as the computer, but with the last number different)

in preferences: printers: add printer:

Protocol: LPD




Name: gcc (doesn't matter)

Print using GCC Elite XL 20/600 v3.31 (or whatever driver you have)

hints if those numbers didnt work for you:

I got the queue number and port number by printing the config page directly from the printer (not the help page)

On the config page, look for "interfaces"

under that, look for "TCP/IP"

under that, look for "Lpd"

there you will find the queue name and port number. this info was missing from a lot of the other online solutions i found and it didnt work until i got it right. (use the port number listed above the queue name, not the one listed below after TCP)

Five computers networked with Linksys WRT320N router. Operating systems: Win 7.0 on 3 computers (two hardwired)(one laptop - wireless), Snow Leopard 10.8 on 1 (wireless), and XP on one (wireless). Also...

Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.
Try installing the latest Wireless card driver on the XP computer and the LAN card drivers on the other computers except the MAC.

GCC 12/1200 printer and SNOW Leopard (TCP/IP?)

A friend had this problem. She is using TCP/IP with no problem. AppleTalk should still work with older machines. I have no idea if you can leave both connected at the same time. You will have to try and see for yourself.

Elite 20/600 not working with Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard broke Appletalk which is how many people connected a GCC printer to their Macs. You must reconfigure to LPD in the print and fax control panel and everything works fine. If you have difficulties please email as we do not have this posted to the Web yet.

Hp laserjet won't print under leopard.

Have you updated to the latest driver, I'm not sure the original driver for "tiger" would necessarily work with "leopard". There is an updated universal driver for all OS X versions.
Just a suggestion.

Tally 8008 not printing mac OSX 10.5.6 leopard

Found a solution. We connected 8008 printer to imac running Tiger & we can now print via network on any of our emacs running Leopard. Not ideal but at least we can now use the printers. I would still love a dedicated driver to work direct but I suppose this will do for now.

HP C8180 has built in wireless adapter and Ethernet according the Website at HP.

If this is connecting to the network wirelessly, check to see that it is connected to the Network, is your router using secure passwords for a connection to the network,
Your printer will need these passwords just as your computers would
If you connect the printer with a Lan Cable, it will be more reliable, and shouldn’t need a password to be on the network. And makes life a little easier...

Your internet provider has nothing to do with your Printer not printing; this is an Internal Network Problem. The settings or your network has changed.

The Printer should have a static IP address

Here is a link to a tip I put together about this subject,
