Hi All


I have a venerable but fully servicable GCC Elite XL 20/600 which I really do not want to scrap.


I am attempting to connect it to my MacBook Pro (late 2011 model) using an ethernet crossover cable. I have the original .ppd file, version 3.31.


Having searched the discussion threads I found this:




which seemed to provide an answer to my problem. However, once I have completed the steps I get the folowing message:


Unable to verify the printer on your network.


‘’ may not exist or is unavailable at this time.

Would you still like to create the queue?


I have tried IPP and LPD options in Print & Scan

I have an ethernet router which I could use to make the connection ... but it seems to me that the crossover cable should work.


Does anyone have any idea what I should try next?





MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2), iOS shows as 4.3.5
