Bi-Directional communication allows a printer driver to communicate with the printer via your network. The driver can acquire information from the printer, including its configuration, current operational status, and the status of the paper trays.
The Status Dialog shows the status of your Xerox system as well as specific information about your print jobs. You can check the status of jobs currently in the print queue or you can verify the status of completed jobs.
Status information is available only when bi-directional communication is enabled.
To check the status of a print job:
Choose the Paper/Output tab.
Click the Status button. The Status dialog opens. The Status button will not appear if bi-directional communication is disabled.
Do one of the following:
Choose the Active Jobs tab to view up to 25 jobs currently active in the print queue.
Choose the Completed Jobs tab to view the last 25 jobs completed.
