If your printer is “TCP/IP Addressable,” the preferred method for network printing is TCP/IP. It is a fast way to send a print job straight to a printer. Printing is the most noticeable method for making a decision about network execution and dependability. Previously, printers were connected directly to PCs via a serial, parallel, or USB port. Nowadays, it is common practice to connect printers directly to the network.
With today’s network printers, all you need is a power outlet and a network port. Then, add a network printer and cables, and you have a remote printer. Well, almost.
There are several benefits to connecting the printers directly to the network:
LPR/LPD Protocol is the printing method commonly used in TCP/IP networks. It is in use on university and business campuses where UNIX printing, AS/400 printing, and mainframe printing systems have been in place for a while; the new generation of the operating system now supports both mainframe and TCP/IP and LPD as well. Thus, it is a computer-to-computer printing method rather than PC-to-PC. LPR/LPD protocol consisted of two parts, LPR and LPD.
LPR is an acronym for Line Printer Request; this is the part that submits the print request. LPR is the client part of the protocol and is sometimes confused when used on a mainframe. Any system submitting requests via an “LPR client” is a client.
LPD stands for Line Printer Daemon; this is the piece that receives and processes the request. A “daemon” is a server or agent.
The HP JetDirect printing® protocol is one of the most widely used for network printers. HP JetDirect supports bidirectional communication as Queue status, Job status, and Page status.
Telnet is a straightforward method based on transferring data safely between TCP ports used for printing purposes. This approach is sometimes called raw TCP/IP, Stream, or direct sockets printing.
Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) is an Internet protocol that allows universal solutions to users trying to print documents from the Internet. The protocol allows the user to:
