Printing is performed via the network by using the TCP/IP protocol.
If Bonjour is enabled on this machine, the Mac OS computer automatically detects the machine connected to the network on TCP/IP, and displays it as an addable printer in the list.
Printing is performed via the network using the LPR protocol (Line PRinter daemon protocol).
RAW printing is performed via the network by directly specifying the RAW port (Port9100) of the machine as a destination printer.
By using the Web service function compatible with your Windows computer, you can automatically detect this machine connected to the network, and easily install it as a Web service printer.
