Adding or Modifying a Manually Mapped Printer
- In the Printer Name box, type a suitable name for the printer. This
name appears in the Mapped Printers list.
- In the Printer Connection section, use the buttons to choose either
a Local port or file or a Network printer:
- To print to a local port, enter the name of the local port. The name of
the local port depends on your operating system. For Windows, local printer
ports are named LPT1 or LPT2. For Linux, they are named /dev/lp0, /dev/lp1,
and so on. Check with your operating system documentation or your system
administrator if you are not sure. Note that when mapping printers attached
to a Macintosh you can print only to a file, not to a port.
- To print to a file, enter the file name and path. When specifying a file
path on a Windows computer, do not specify the drive letter at the beginning
of the path. You can print only to files located on the default drive,
usually "C:". Instead, prefix the path with a backslash like this:
- To print to a network printer, enter the name of the print server and
the queue name.
- In the Printer Driver section, select the correct driver for your
printer from the list.
- To print to this printer by default, select the Set as default
- To disable this printer, clear the Enable Printer check box.
