IPP connection

IPP printing is performed via the network by using the IPP protocol.

This function uses the HTTP-advanced IPP to transfer print data, so it allows you to print data on a remote printer via the network.

This function performs authentication for IPP printing, thereby, preventing an unauthorized access by the third person. If necessary, you can encrypt communications between this machine and your computer using SSL, enabling more secure printing.

To use IPP printing, follow the steps below to configure the required setting.

  1. Configure the setting to connect to the network, for example, specifying the IP address of this machine.

    For details about the setting procedure, refer to TCP/IP connection.

  2. Configure the basic setting for IPP printing.

    For details about the setting procedure, refer to [Network] Tab: [IPP Setting].

  3. When you want to establish an SSL communication with this machine (IPPS printing), refer to Creating a certificate for this machine for SSL communication.

  4. Configure settings on the computer side.
