This describes how to install the PCL or RPCS printer driver using the TCP/IP port.
To install this printer driver under Windows 2000 / XP / Vista, and Windows Server 2003 / 2003 R2, you must have an account that has Manage Printers permission. Log on as an Administrators or Power Users group member.
In an IPv6 environment, you cannot use the Standard TCP/IP Port. Use the SmartDeviceMonitor for Client port.
