Printer share protocol and destination

How do i know what protocol and destination to use when creating a printer share?

Good Afternoon Mannytz,

information about printers can be found in the link below:

In order to recommend a protocol for you, I will like to know which type of printer do you have and how did you (would like to) connect it.


Its an HP Officejet Pro 8610 printer. I would like to connect it over a network.(It’s a network printer)

Good Morning Mannytz,

  • The protocol can be http, ipp (internet printing protocol). In your case, http will be good.
  • The destination is the IP address of the printer or server with the port number e.g. or hostname e.g. ipp: //server:port/path
