Use Discover printers to add printers you suspect were not found during the initial discovery. The result is securely and silently transferred to Printix Cloud without any required interaction.

  1. Open the Printers page.
  2. Click Discover printers.
    • The actual discovery process starts once one of the computers on your network has picked up this task.
    • If you have multiple networks you have to select Network.
  1. Click Confirm.

To start discovery from a particular computer:

  1. Open the Computers page.
  2. Select the computer and click Modify.
  3. Click Discover printers.
  4. Click Confirm.

Discovered printers:

  • After a few moments click Refresh on the Printers page.
  • If no new printers appear, then look for them on the Unregistered printers page. Otherwise, it may be that the printers are perhaps already registered, or they are on another network subnet.

Discover printers on another network subnet

Use Printix Administrator to add one of the printers on the other network subnet and then repeat the discovery.

  1. Obtained the address of one of the printers on the other network subnet.
  2. Add that printer in Printix Administrator.
  3. Start discovery again.
