Configuring SLP Communication

When using the machine in an environment using a Service Location Protocol (SLP) with software installed to perform communication, configure the SLP communication settings, as needed.
* See the manual of the software to determine the settings that need to be configured.
Configure these settings using Remote UI from a computer. You cannot use the control panel to configure the settings.
Administrator privileges are required. The machine must be restarted to apply the settings.

Check the number of routers the SLP communication packets will traverse.
