I'd like to share with you my experiences with the Xerox Global Print driver and our Xerox AltaLink C80XX Series printers.
First of all, in a business context you'd like to have the features of the bidirectional connection e. g. to work with different kind of paper. The solution that works for us is to turn "Bi-Directional Communication" to "manual", with the right IP-Address in the field. Automatic does not work for us, because on the client it uses the local port. So I suggest for every administrator with Xerox Printers of the Office line or greater, set "Bi-Directional Communication" to "manual"!
