How do you get the colon in there for the port? I am attempting to add a
port for a new workstation and i can't get the colon for the printer port:
192.168.1.14:p rint_700-800 (this is for a canon color printer and i see
that port on other workstations but i can't figure out how i got it there.
I am retiring now from this job and it is a good thing... charlie

Select add new printer and the colon will appear automatically when
you identify the TCP/IP port you want to use.

1. Add New Printer.
2. Install Local Printer.
3. Create New Port (choose TCP/IP)
4. TCP/IP printer wizard will start. Put in the IP address. Follow the
rest of the wizard.

Hi Charles,

You may try John and Malke's suggestions, and also you may refer to the
following Microsoft Web site:

To add a standard TCP/IP port
<http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/window...
-us/print_add_tcpip_port.mspx>

To add a standard TCP/IP port
===================================
1. Open Printers and Faxes
2. Under Printer Tasks, click Add a printer to open the Add Printer Wizard,
and then click Next.
3. Click Local printer or stand-alone network printer, clear the
Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer check box, and
then click Next.
4. Click Create a new port, and then click Standard TCP/IP Port.
5. Click Next to run the Add Standard TCP/IP Printer Port Wizard.
6. Follow the instructions on the screen to finish installing the TCP/IP
printer.

Hope this helps!

Have a nice day!
