Installation Preparations and Precautions
Confirm the port to be specified
Specify a standard TCP/IP port or a network printer port. You can specify an already registered port. You can select a temporary port ([LPT1] etc.) and set it after installation is complete.
Confirm the name and IP address of the device (if adding a standard TCP/IP port).
You must enter the device name and IP address when adding a standard TCP/IP port and installing. For the name of the device, use the name by which the device is known on the network. If you do not know the device name or IP address, check with your network administrator.
Confirm the queue specified for each port (if the target device is shown in the following).
If an optional external print server unit is attached to the target device, after selecting the port, you must specify the queue. Click "Open details," and confirm the queue corresponding to the selected port.
When starting the computer, log on as a member of Administrators.
