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

  1. In Setup> Printer, under TCP direct print, select the option Enabled.
  2. 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.
