Question about GCC Technologies Elite 12/600 Laser Printer
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.
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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:
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 192.000.001.001
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 192.000.001.002 (it needs to be almost the same as the computer, but with the last number different)
in preferences: printers: add printer:
[THE 515 AT THE END IS THE PORT NUMBER, ITS SUPER IMPORTANT]
Queue: EliteXL [ALSO IMPORTANT]
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)
