Raw TCP/IP Printing

Raw TCP/IP is used to open a TCP socket-level connection over Port 9100, and stream a print-ready file to the printer input buffer. It then closes the connection either after sensing an End Of Job character in the PDL or after expiration of a preset timeout value. Port 9100 does not require an LPR request from the computer or the use of an LPD running on the printer. Raw TCP/IP printing is selected in Windows as the Standard TCP/IP port.

Note: Enable TCP/IP before enabling Raw TCP/IP printing.

To configure Raw TCP/IP settings:

  1. For Protocol, select Enable.
  2. Ensure that Port Number is set to 9100.
  3. Click Apply.
