Xerox 8830 Windows 7 64-bit drivers

Trying to get a Xerox Plotter installed on a Windows 7 64-bit machine. I have read around that the Xerox 510 Wide Format drivers will work. I've downloaded the driver installation package for the 510 series, ran the installation, but when I try to send a print job to the printer, it will fail after about 10-15 seconds. I've tried the HSGL and PS drivers and get the same result with either set.

Has anyone else managed to come across this problem and figured out a way to get it to work.

or even the Global Driver set, which will give you PCL/PCL6/PS drivers that work with just about any printer, including legacy Xerox and non-Xerox.

Yeah I tried several drivers including those and didnt get it to work.

Contacted someone who sold the equipment years ago and found there was a little more configuration to be done.

Xerox 510 driver should work with the 8830 on Windows 7. Set up the printer using a local tcpip port and using the custom interface button to change the port from 9100 to 2000.

Did this on several workstations and all are printing.
