Adding an Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) gateway printer to your desktop
An Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) gateway printer is a printer that you create on a client workstation using IPP client software. Users submit print jobs to that printer, and they are sent to InfoPrint Manager through the InfoPrint IPP gateway. The IPP gateway can then send the job on to any InfoPrint printer, even those that are not IPP-enabled.
To be able to print through an IPP gateway, you must first have IPP client software installed on your workstation or laptop. IPP client software is available from various printer vendors; check with your printing system administrator to see which IPP client your company is using. Once you have the IPP client software installed, to set up to print through the IPP gateway:
- Ask your printing system administrator for the address of the printer that you want to print to.
- Follow the instructions provided with your IPP client software for adding a printer to your desktop. When you are asked for the address of the printer, enter the address that you got in step 1.
- Once the printer is added, you can print to it just as you would any other printer.
