    Installation Defining the printer to the host for IPDS printing Prior to installation of your DocuColor 2060 NPS/IPS, your host system must be configured to communicate with and print on the DocuColor 2060 NPS/IPS. This requires defining several printer parameters to your host. The required information and configuration procedures differ according to your connectivity type (channel or TCP/IP), and your host and PSF environment.
