If you need help with any part of these instructions, please email email@example.com to have someone respond and help you set up your computer to the Xerox network printer.
Windows Setup Instructions
Once you’ve downloaded and opened the driver installation file, you should be presented with this screen:
If this window does not automatically find the Xerox7970 printer, click the right-hand icon and enter the address for it manually (18.104.22.168). Select the printer in the window and click “Next >” to continue.
On the second screen, you do not need to make any changes except for renaming the printer if needed. Leave Postscript checked and nothing else turned on. Click “Install” to continue
That’s it! Do not attempt to print a test page, as it will fail without accounting codes. Once the installation is complete you may close any registration pages that pop up. To set up accounting codes, a popup will appear the first time you try and use the printer, which Windows will remember across all applications once input.
Mac Setup Instructions
Once you’ve opened the installation package file, you should see this screen:
If this window does not automatically find the Xerox7970 printer, click the right-hand icon and enter the address for it manually (22.214.171.124). Select the printer in the window and click “Continue” to finish the installation. Do not attempt to print a test page as it will fail without accounting codes set up.
Once the printer is installed, you will need to configure Accounting, and it will need to be done for each application you print from individually. Each program also presents the method to get to accounting slightly differently, so the examples given here are generated from Safari.
First, at the print screen, change your view by clicking “Show Details” on the bottom of the window:
That will expand your printing options. On the second screen, click “Safari” (or whatever application you are using) to change to “Printer Features” or “Xerox Features”
Once you’re in Printer Features / Xerox Features, choose the Feature Sets dropdown to change from “PaperOutput” to “Advanced”
Towards the bottom of this list, there should be a button for Accounting. Click that to bring up the Accounting options:
On the accounting options page, insert your accounting code along with the same settings here. Accounting System should always be “Xerox Standard Accounting” but the prompting and masking are your preference. Default Account Type should be set to General.
That’s it! You should be ready to print from that program. Note that you will likely have to repeat this process for every application you wish to print from. You can save these settings as a printing preset at the main print page by clicking the Presets button and saving a new preset:
The Xerox will likely report it is out of paper forever, and it is not considered a bug; the bypass tray when closed does not have any paper in it, which is what is being reported to the Mac and shown as “Out of Paper”
