Printer Issues 10.8.3 - Xante Screen Writer 4
Just upgraded to a MBP retina and I have 10.8.3 installed.
I can not get it to recognize my xante screen writer 4.
I have the printers IP set and am using that to set it up like I did in previous versions of OS X.
My older mbp still prints fine to it on the same network.
I have tried ethernet and wifi and neither have worked.
I really need this printer to work without having to use my old machine to print from.

Xante's printers do not appear to be natively supported in Mountain Lion. Have you installed the latest driver available from Xante? Unfortunately, it's almost two years old.

I have the most recent drivers as well as a few older ones I've tried.

I have two macbook pros both hardwired on a dlink router. The old machine prints fine. I have set a static IP on the printer and used network utilities to ping that IP with no response from either machine.
I was able to install the printer on the new machine using printer sharing from my old one so that I could at least get some work printed but that only works when both laptops are on.

I've got a tech calling me back from xante in the morning.
