Getting the Samsung CLX 2160 MFC work under Windows 7

4. November 2009

My laser printer Samsung CLX 2160 worked very fine under Vista. But now I have upgraded to Win7Ultimate and it does not any more. Ok – new OS, new search for drivers …

I found a new driver on the Samsung page. But after installing I even couldnt print. The OS silently ignored print jobs. I tried to check the settings, but I always get the error message


Then I got an idea: maybe the (default) access rules are too restrictive. So I tried to widen them (Everybody: configure the printer, configure the documents)


And now it works 😉

  • Sidechannel Attacks
  • Data Leakage through CPU Caches

If you are in N.Y. or Toronto and interesting in modeling, the Eclipse Modeling Days could be interesting for you.
