An actual destination represents an output device, such as a printer, or electronic mailing system. In general, you create one actual destination for each physical output device that you use with InfoPrint Manager. It is possible to create more than one actual destination for a device, but that configuration is not common. You configure the actual destination to mirror the features and capabilities of the output device, such as the output resolution of a printer. You also configure the actual destination to control the order in which it processes jobs, for example, by job size or by submission time.
If you do not specify values for all of the attributes when you create an actual destination, InfoPrint Manager provides default values for many of them or obtains those values by using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) requests. You can make modifications, as required, at a later time.
