Configuring a Printer Port (Windows)

If the IP address of the machine changed or a printer has been added in Windows, you may not be able to print from a computer. In this case, use the printer driver to add a new port.
In addition, you cannot print from a computer when the port type or port number of the printer driver differ from that of the machine setting. In this case, change the setting on the printer driver to match that of the machine.

Adding a Port

The machine supports two types of ports: "MFNP Port" and "Standard TCP/IP Port." Select and add the port to use according to your usage environment.
MFNP Port (only for IPv4 environment)
You can only add this port when a printer driver is installed using the installer. The connection is maintained as long as the machine and computer belong to the same subnet, even if the IP address of the machine is changed.
Standard TCP/IP Port
This is a standard Windows port. You must add a new port every time the IP address of the machine is changed. Select this type of port when you cannot add an MFNP port.
 
Administrator privileges are required on each computer.
