Use Discover printers to add printers you suspect were not found during the initial discovery. The result is securely and silently transferred to the Printix Cloud without any required interaction.
To discover printers by hostname instead, see How to discover printers by hostname.

  1. Open the Printers page.
  2. Select Discover printers.
  3. In Select network select Network.
  4. Optionally select a SNMP configuration
  5. Select Discover printers.

Discovered printers:

  • After a few moments select 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.

To start discovery from a particular computer (print server)

  1. Open the Computers page.
  2. Select the computer (print server) and select Modify.
    Optionally Filter on Type and select Server.
  1. On the Computer properties page, scroll to the Discover section.
    Optionally select a SNMP configuration.
  1. Select Discover printers.
  2. Select Confirm.

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.
