- Kyocera Mita printers work fine with the generic driver packages. The
only limitation is that during auto detection of the connected printers
you manually have to enter the printer's ip address for snmp discovery.
When used on an windows server the address gets detected. We used the
following models FS-C5150DN, FS-C5015N, FS-3920DN, FS-2000DN.
- Brother, MFC 7840W and MFC 7360DN had worked fine for an while
(~4.0.5) without restrictions and stopped working (4.1.?) after an
update. Did not get em running again so i moved them to an windows vm.
- HP with generic drivers worked fine for with XP but not with Windows
7, guess i need the snmp fix you mentioned. We use Color LaserJet
CP1510, LaserJet 1100, LaserJet Pro 400 MFP.
