Has anyone used OSI Xerox Agent on their MAC computer?

Background: New IT support group hired at work and they want this installed on the computers. As far as I can tell (haven't dug much yet) I need Parallels to run it on my Mac. The company didn't provided software or hardware for me to work remotely. I own everything.

I've politely said "thanks, but no, I'm not installing this on my own Mac hardware. In the past, most IT people weren't very helpful with the occasional issue. Plus I have excellent Mac repair people a phone call away to take care of my computers if I need it."

So, has anyone had experience with this software? Talk to me...

I can't tell why anyone would need to run that in this decade and century.

Where I used to work had Xerox printer/copiers, they never installed this software at all. They saw it as not providing anything useful, and since almost all of the computers were running Windows it wasn't an issue with what OS was being run.

Unless they can give a strong business case for running it, there are other ways of handling the Xerox equipment. If they insist on it, then it sounds like time to get another IT support group.

I can't identify what this is, and Google isn't helping.

I'm familiar with the Xerox Device Agent... Are you managing your Xerox printers from your Mac?

Perhaps this webpage last updated April 15, 1999 will help - [academy.delmar.edu]

I find it hard to believe that this has anything to do with XNS.

"OSI" is what's really throwing me here. Is it the name of the company distributing the Xerox Agent, or is it referring to a protocol that's being modified somehow... perhaps relating to network/printing-security?

I couldn't figure this out either and I manage a bunch of Fiery enabled Xerox printers. I've never head of the OSI Xerox agent before.

If it's windows software, plop it on your drive, and tell them you "installed" it.
