Changing the Port Setting in the Printer Driver

Solution

Changing the Port Setting in the Printer Driver

In a case where you install the printer driver via network connection with a temporary port (a port not used actually), you need to specify the port settings using the following procedure.

In the following cases, you need to specify the port settings manually.

When port settings are required Action
The printer driver is installed from [Add Printer]. The printer driver is installed using the settings of the output destination different from the IP address configured in the machine. After the installation, configure the port settings according to the IP address configured in the machine.
When obtaining the IP address automatically (DHCP: ON), the data transfer stops suddenly. When the IP address is obtained automatically, there may be a case where the IP address assigned to the machine is changed if you restart the server (router). In this case, confirm the IP address configured by the machine, and change the port settings according to the IP address reconfigured by the machine.
The IP address in the machine is changed. Change the port settings according to the IP address configured in the machine.

If you cannot send data in a network environment, check the port settings.

You need an IP address to set a port. If you are not sure about the IP address configured in the machine, see the "e-Manual" (HTML manual) in the CD-ROM supplied with the machine.

note:
