Configuring Printer Ports
Printing errors can occur when the IP address of the machine has been changed, or when a printer has been added via the Windows
printer folder. These errors are typically caused by incorrect printer port settings. For example, an incorrect port number or port type
may have been specified. In such situations, your attempt to print fails because the document data cannot reach the machine. To fix this
type of problem, configure the printer port settings on the computer.
To perform the following procedure, log on to your computer with an administrator account.
Open the printer folder.
Right-click your printer icon and click [Printer properties] (or [Properties]).
Click the [Ports] tab and configure the required settings.
Adding a port
If the IP address of the machine has been changed, add a new port. Adding a port is also an effective solution when an incorrect
port type was selected in the Windows printer folder during the printer driver installation.
Click [Add Port].
Select [Canon MFNP Port] in [Available port types] and click [New Port].
