TCP direct print
The print data can be received directly via TCP/IP and sent to the parallel port or USB port to the printer. The data are not modified before printing and there is no spooling of print jobs. TCP/IP handles the flow control.
Configuring TCP direct print
- In Setup> Printer, under TCP direct print, select the option Enabled.
- Specify the relevant port number for the communication.
The default port numbers are:
9101 for USB printers
9100 for parallel port printers
Note that the specified ports are opened on the device.
To print from a Windows session, for the printer port, choose a standard TCP/IP port. Specify the client IP address and the TCP/IP port selected in the previous step. Select Raw for the protocol in Windows.
