Re: Is anyone else facing this from Xerox?

especially if they're in a marketplace where Canon or Ricoh or Konica Minolta have a much more competitive (read that "Less costly") Gov't Bid program in place and Xerox would not ordinarily be able to place equipment and sell toner otherwise. It work extremely well in the 70's and 80's for me as a K-12 Rep then.

of having air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter? C. Could it be that 95.4 percent of these unhappy folks have a job? D.

Re: Network Install Guide For Dummies

This is why I don't like General Guides If a customer is using DHCP, simply picking a higher number is not safe. You (and your contact at the customer) may not be aware of other factors. There may be a different class of devices (such as servers or printers or whatever) that is placed into a higher DHCP range. If you want to be perfectly safe when the customer is on DHCP, their IT should provide you with an IP. Of course, I've grabbed a seemingly open IP in order to get he printer working too .

If the customer can't give me an IP or know of one that is available, I will use the one that was in the printer/copier that I am replacing. If it is a new install, I will ask their IT what IP to use or have them do it. So far it has not been an issue.

Re: Savin 8075 Phantom Jams

going to complain about a machine when it is their own stupidity. The adage goes "It's always someone else's fault, but not me." This machine consistently runs 60k+ per month from both prints and copies, and the jam count now is less than 8 and those are not from the bypass tray.
