10.4: A workaround to use the Xerox Phaser 6100/n System 10.4
For some reason, Tiger and the Xerox Phaser do not work well together. The easiest solution I have found to get this printer to work with Tiger is to go to the Samsung site and download the driver for the CLP-510 (search for that model on the linked page). Since the printer is made by them anyway and the driver works well. Actually, I think it works better than the one Xerox supplies. Anyway, I hope this helps some of you out while moving across to Tiger. Hopefully Xerox will correct this problem soon, but my email to them remains unanswered...

Samsung no longer provides a Mac driver for the CLP-500. But I've found that this Samsung CLP-510 driver works great. It enables duplexing from the print Dialog and proper greyscacle rendering. Both of which I couldn't get before. The CLP-510 driver is great!

Is the Xerox problem on all Phaser printers or just the 6100?
I have a phaser 860. Can't test it out though until I receive my copy of TIGER - in the mail!!! (:-(

From Xerox
"Thank you for contacting the North American E-mail Support Team. I have
put a copy of the new driver on our FTP website. To get the copy of the
driver go to ftp://ftp.tekcolor.com and download and install
Phaser6100_macos10.4_en. This driver should take care of the problems
you are having."

The actual site is ftp://ftp.tekcolor.com/outgoing/ (Use Firefox or a FTP client, not the finder)

This is a patch; the real drivers are to come later on the Xerox site.

10.4: A workaround to use the Xerox Phaser 6100/n
Authored by: Mars_Artis on Jul 13, '05 06:08:27AM

Ok mate I recently updated to 10.4.2
Since i was unable to find the updater marty was speaking about I google around and i found good tips from macintouch http://www.macintouch.com/tiger05.html
follow these 10 simple steps:

1. In Print Center's Printer List, click the 'Add' button, to add a new printer
2. In the Printer Browser window that pops up, click the 'IP Printer' tab at the top of the window - this will allow you to connect to your printer using a TCP/IP- based protocol
3. In the 'Protocol' menu, select "Line Printer Daemon - LPD"
4. In the 'Address' field, enter the IP address of your Samsung printer - you can check your printer's IP address by printing its 'Configuration Page'.
5. Leave the "Queue" field blank
6. In the "Name" field, enter any name you'd like to use for your printer (Ex: "Samsung CLP-500")
7. Leave "Location" blank
8. In the "Print Using" menu, select "Samsung"
9. The window extends, and your printer model should appear inside a selectable list. Select it.
10. Click the 'Add' button, to add the printer to your Printer List! Done! Works like a charm, and your computer should be able to print to it again

anyway I have to add that using the Xerox driver on 10.4 to 10.4.1 worked for me.
For 10.4.2 I had to use the Samsung CLP-510n driver

I found your previous message while trying to get my phaser 6100 working on os10.4. I went to the FTP site looked in the out box, but the file was gone. Could you please post that driver again and let me know when its there.

Thanks
