We are having difficulty setting up a Xerox 5735 in CUPs

Although we have the PPD driver, the unit does not appear in the device list. I am not clear how this list is constucted, but assume it should be there. We are using a generic 'AppSocket/HP JetDirect' instead.

The CUPs documentation suggest that we use the device URL of:  socket://<ip>:5505  however, we dont see this port open on the device so we are using socket://<ip>:9100 instead.

With this setup, when a printjob is sent the network controller reboots.
Please help

The printer uses ports 9100 (Appsocket) and 515 (LPD). I'm not sure where the 5505 comes from, but I can virtually guarantee it's not used by the printer.

5505 comes from the CUPS website documentation

Yes, this is the same driver.  I have simply downloaded and point to the PPD driver when setting up using the CUPS graphical UI.

However, the step before the driver, is to select the device from a drop down list. The 5735 does not appear in the list, forcing me to choose another option.

Can you point CUPS to the location of the PPD? As CUPS supports PostSCript, a PPD is all it should need (so it knows the printer-specific features).

Yes we can.  The device list comes Before the driver, forcing us to pick a generic device, before we can point to the PPD driver file on the next screen.

When we do this, we get the re-booting network controller as originally described.

We were unable to resolve this, and have instead moved to HP equipment.
