MacOS does not support PCL driver (only the latest versions of MacOs support it). You need to install the PS (PostScript) Driver but for that your machine needs to have PS installed to.
This is optional on several models.
If you really what to print with your Mac and extract all functionalists you have to put this optional.
You could go around the problem by installing in Your Mac a virtual machine with Windows...
Hope this helps

Can the Gestetner DSm516pf be networked?

It looks like this printer doesn't have Ethernet so directly No. You could technically set the printer up with a computer and then on that computers printer settings allow it to Share the printer. This would mean though that the computer connecting directly to the printer would have to be turned on for other computers to see it.

Does a Gestetner 2212 work with a Mac OSX Version 10.6.7

If your device cames with PS, yes you can.
With MacOs You need Post Script to print with any printer. I know that the latest versions of Mac already print with PCL. I can not tell you if your version is the latest.
Although you can take a look on this web site
See you!

I can't print on the Gestetner DMS516pf because there is no driver for mac Any solutions

MacOs just print with PS (PostScript).
Probably your machine do not have it (moustly because it is extra and it is to expensive)
But you can download from a web sit called "Gutenprint for Mac OS X" (make a search on Goggle and you will find it) a generic driver for PCL printers
You will not be able to take full advantage of the machine but... work.

You can also take a look on this web site:

I didnt try it but Looks like there is a printer driver that will work with any PCL printer. Just have to install the HP ijs driver.

How to use gestetner dsc224 as Mac OS X printer

You need a PostScript (PS3) DIMM for the DSC224 so it will understand what the Mac is saying to it. Obviously the machine has network print option installed, otherwise there would be no response at all. The PS3 DIMM installs on the print controller board. If I remember correctly, (looking from the rear of machine), left side behind outer cabinetry......a bit deeper, then behind metal RFI shield,,,the proper slot is labeled on controller pcb....if not labeled, it will be the only slot open for this sized DIMM. I must admit, it has been 3 or 4 years since I've assembled one of these models. Hope this helps.

Dsc328 will not print using a Mac

If your copier / printer does not have postscript 3 option installed, it will not print from MAC. Print a configuration page: "User tools", "Printer features" "list print" (or similar), "configuration page". Check under the heading of "printer languages"'ll see stuff like "PCL 5c", "PCL 6", "RPCS", etc. If no "postscript 3", it is not compatible with your MAC, and you don't want to know how much that option is for your machine! Ridiculous!
