New Xerox Phaser 3450DN Printer Installation

UPDATED See HpLaserjetDriver -- new Hp Printer, same I.P. number June 2007 -mrc

To setup the new printer (for WinXP):

  1. Logon as admin to the computer.
  2. Go to chewie:
    • \\chewie\users\Software\Xerox 3450DN Printer Drivers\PS
    • Run "setup.exe"
  3. Printer's IP Address is the same as for the old printer:, the installation program will hopefully find it and ask you if you want to install "(Xerox Phaser 3450) at". If not, add a TCP/IP printer port via the Printers and Faxes control panel...

For Macs, the printer drivers are also on chewie:

  • \\chewie\users\Software\Xerox 3450DN Printer Drivers\Mac

If you feel the need for Xerox documentation, it too is on Chewie:

  • \\chewie\users\Software\Xerox 3450DN Printer Drivers\Docs

REMOVE THE CONNECTION TO THE OLD JarJar PRINTER. It'll still print, but not correctly since you'd be using the wrong driver.

TIP To access the backup printer (Jarjar Backup - HP 4M Plus)

Reconfigure OLD Jarjar or Install a new printer with the following settings:
  • Local Printer -> TCP/IP port
  • IP: (using the IP for benkenobi)
  • Model: HP Laserjet 4M Plus
  • Name: Jarjar Backup (does not really matter)
