Name

  • Printer name
    By default the printer name is set to the model name of the printer. The printer name appears on the printer ID sign and in the Printix App. However, it is the Print queue name users will see on their computer and in Printix Client. If there are for example two active print queues, you should name them so users will both know the physical printer and be able to determine the difference in purpose of the print queues.
    Example:
    • Printer name Reception has two queues with the Print queue names: Reception and Reception Staple.
    • Reception is the general purpose and the one most frequently used of the two print queues.
    • Reception Staple has a print driver configuration that will staple together sheets by default.
  • Model
    The model name obtained from the printer.

Location

  • Location
    Description of the printer’s location. Example: Head Office, Reception
  • Enable geolocation
    Check this to improve the user experience, for example, when searching for printers. Select Use current location to populate the printer location coordinates with the latitude and longitude recorded by your web browser. Coordinates are more accurate if you are using your phone. The web browser may ask you to allow use of the current location. You can adjust the coordinates by zooming in on the map and dragging the position pin to a more accurate position.

Network

  • MAC address
    The hardware address obtained from the printer.
  • Printer address
    The printer’s hostname or IP address. By default print data is sent as RAW print via TCP port 9100. Print data can be sent via another port and the LPR (Line Printer Remote) protocol. There must be a space between the IP address and $$.
    • RAW mode via TCP port 9100 (default)
      Example: 192.168.1.94
    • RAW mode via another TCP port
      Example: 192.168.1.94 $$port:9101
    • LPR mode via TCP port 515
      Example: 192.168.1.94 $$lpr:myqueue
    • LPR mode via another TCP port
      Example: 192.168.1.94 $$lpr:myqueue$$port:712
  • Network name
    The name of the network the printer is on.
