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.

Regards
Anna

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. 192.168.0.100:631 or hostname e.g. ipp: //server:port/path
