Documate 3920; syntax to add network printer;

Jump to solution

I am using a Xerox Documate 3920 and would like to use the Copy-to-Printer feature.

As far as I understand, you can assign as well a network printer (Copy->Change Printer->Add Printer).

 

What is the correct syntax to add a network printer?

What socket/protocol is supported?

 

I would like to add a print-queue e.g. like "lpd://ip-address-or-hostname/queue" or "lpd://192.168.0.24/Gen-PCL5", but I always get an error "print test page failed" when testing.

 

Thanks for any help,

Tom

Unless it is a feature added after the documentation for it, that isn't an option, it can only output to a USB printer, not networked.

Thanks Joe, but the documentation you are refering to might be outdated (8/2010). The firmware which is installed here shows Version 1.0.1 ( or 0.101) from 11/2015.

 

On the panel, there is an option to change to a networked printer. The very little panel-help shows an example syntax of "http://server/.printer" or "\ID:Pwd@IPPrinter" - but I struggle with those limited examples...  

 

As it is implemented in the Firmware, I do have strong hopes, someone is already using that feature?

It is fairly unlikely here since this is a Xerox site, Xeroxscanners is a separate entity.

 

It probably doesn't list much because it likely depends on the output device you are using.

You could for instance be sending to a linux print queue, in which case you can get the information in CUPS>Help. If direct to a device, then it depends on what port/protocol

 

Straight to a Xerox it would be lpd://13.226.xxx.xxx/lp for most devices (Obviously your printers IP)
