Getting More Than Basic Printing Mode When Printer Model Is Not Supported by Xerox Global Print Driver

Not all Xerox printer models are fully supported by the Global Print driver. In some cases, even newer models are not yet supported by the current version of the GPD. In this case, the driver switches to Basic Printing Mode, which disables several of the functionalities of the printer (Accounting, Color Options, etc.)

In a situation as described above, the automatic detection of the printer model can be disabled and the driver can be manually pointed to a fully supported model. Note that it is important to find a model that is close in functionality so that the correct options can be configured. Alternatively, you can select Xerox WorkCentre Device or Xerox Free Flow Device for select Xerox models and have access to more features. [more]
