Configuring the Machine for Printing from a Computer
When using the machine as a network printer, you can configure the protocols and ports used for printing and create
a print server for the machine. Before configuring the machine for printing from a computer, perform the basic setup
procedures, including the printer driver installation. For more information, see the manuals for the relevant drivers on
the online manual website.
Printing protocols are rules for delivering document data created on a computer to the machine, and can be
selected according to the printing purpose or the network environment.
Ports are gateways for passing document data from a computer to the printer. Incorrect port settings are
often the cause when documents cannot be printed from a network computer.
