PSF TCP/IP printer

Create a PSF actual destination to represent an Intelligent Printer Data Stream (IPDS) printer. Use the TCP/IP attachment type for an IPDS printer that PSF controls directly through TCP/IP.

Before creating a PSF TCP/IP printer, complete this worksheet.

PSF TCP/IP printer worksheet

Wizard prompt Description Value
Name The name for the actual destination object (64-character limit).  
Server The InfoPrint server that controls this actual destination.  
Model Select the printer model from the pull-down list in the InfoPrint Manager Administration GUI. If the printer you are working with is not in the pull-down list, enter the name as it appears on the printer.  
TCP/IP address The IP address used to access this printer.  
TCP/IP port The port used by the printer for communication.

If no value is specified, the server selects a port number based upon the printer model.

Note: The InfoPrint 1000 family of printers uses port 9100. Most other InfoPrint printers default to port 5001. The value you set here must match the value set at the printer.
Logical destination The logical destination that directs jobs to this actual destination.

You can accept the default LD, use another existing LD, or create a new one for this printer.

  • __ Default
  • __ Existing: ________
  • __ Create: ________
Logical destination's server The server that contains the logical destination.  
Queue The queue that holds jobs destined for this actual destination. If you selected a new LD, you get these three options:
  • __ Default
  • __ Existing: ________
  • __ New: ________

To create this type of printer, use the Create Printer Wizard in the InfoPrint Manager Administration GUI. (On the menu bar, click Printer → Create → PSF → TCP/IP.)

PSF TCP/IP printer worksheet provides the information that the wizard prompts for. See the InfoPrint Manager Administration GUI online help for more assistance.

If you did not enable the printer with the Create Printer Wizard, use the InfoPrint Manager Administration GUI to enable it.
