Usage Guidelines

  • For PSF actual destinations, this attribute applies only to actual destinations with an attachment type of other.
  • While the server is trying to connect to the printer device, this actual destination is in the timed-out state, but it can still accept jobs.
  • If the server cannot connect to the printer device in the specified time:
    • The printer state becomes timed-out.
    • This actual destination will not accept new jobs.
    • InfoPrint might issue a warning message, depending on the notification profile of this actual destination.
    • The server continues to try to connect to the printer device until successful, or until this actual destination is disabled.
    • InfoPrint sends a warning message at the end of each timeout period (if specified by the notification profile).
