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

Enabling Port 9100

Note: Before you enable Port 9100, enable TCP/IP.

To enable port 9100:

  1. In the Embedded Web Server, click Connectivity > Port Settings.
  2. For Port 9100, select Enabled.
  3. Click Apply.

Configuring Port 9100

To configure port 9100:

  1. In the Embedded Web Server, click Properties > Connectivity > Protocols > Port 9100.
  2. If necessary, for TCP-MSS Mode, select Enabled.

    Note: TCP-MSS settings are common for LPD and Port 9100.

  3. If TCP-MSS mode is enabled, for IPv4, type the IP addresses for Subnets 1, 2, and 3.
  4. Ensure that the TCP Port Number is set to 9100.
  5. For End of Job Timeout, type a value between 2–65535 seconds. The default time is 300 seconds.
  6. If necessary, for TBCP Filter, select Enabled.
  7. Click Apply.
