HP Designjet 100, 110 and 120 Series Printers - Configuring Ports on the Computer

Introduction
This document contains instructions for configuring ports on the computer using the Driver installation CD and instructions for configuring ports manually through the Windows Printers folder.
Creating a network port
Complete the steps below to create a Network port using the Driver CD.
  1. In the Driver CD main menu, click Create Network Port Only.
    Figure : Driver CD main menu
  2. In the Network Printer Configuration dialog box, select one of the following options for identifying the printer:
    • Search from a list of available printers
    • Specify a printer by address
        note:
      If the network is large and has many devices connected to it, the Search from a list of available printers option might take a long time to complete. The Specify a printer by address option is recommended for large networks. Click here for instructions on specifying a printer by address.
      Figure : Network Printer Configuration dialog box
    To select from a list of available printers:
    1. Select Search from a list of available printers, and click Next. A dialog box will open.
        note:
      It is possible to click Stop to cancel the search; however, a list of printers will not be generated if Stop is clicked before the search is complete.

      After the search is complete, a list of available printers is displayed. The following information is given for each printer:
      • Printer model
      • Hardware address
      • IP address
      • IPX address
      If necessary, use this information to sort the search results.
    2. Select the printer to be installed, and then click Next.

      Figure : Network Printer Configuration
    2. Enter an address or hostname for the printer, and then click Next.
        note:

Using Windows Printer folder (manual configuration)
It is possible to manually create ports in the computer. Create these ports during driver installation, or when necessary to connect an already installed printer to a different port.
  1. In Windows Desktop click Start, click Settings, and then click Printers.
  2. In the Printers window, click File, and then click Server Properties. The PrintServers Properties dialog box opens.
    Figure : Print Server Properties dialog box
      note:
    If a printer is selected, the Server Properties option does not appear in this menu.
  3. Click the Ports tab, and then click Add Port. The Printer Ports dialog box opens.
    Figure : Printer Ports dialog box
  4. Select HP Standard TCP/IP Port (this option is available only if the Macroinstaller has been used to create a TCP/IP port). Click New Port. The Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port Wizard dialog box opens.
      note:
    If the Macroinstaller was previously used to create a TCP/IP port in the computer, two TCP/IP will be available: HP Standard TCP/IP Port and Standard TCP/IP Port. The second of these options is the Windows standard TCP/IP port. This port was designed for office printers and might cause problems with large-format printing. HP designed the HP Standard TCP/IP Port for large-format printers.
  5. Enter the printer IP address. A generic name (IP_x.x.x.x, where x.x.x.x is the IP address) appears as the default port name. Modify this name if necessary.
    Figure : Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port Wizard dialog box
  6. Click Finish to create the port.

Connecting a printer to a port
Once a port is created, it is possible to connect a printer to it.
  1. In Windows Desktop click Start, Settings, Printers.
  2. In the Printers window, right-click the appropriate printer icon, and then select Properties.
  3. Click the Ports tab, and then select the desired port from the list.
  4. Click OK.
