Manage Protocols panel

Use the Manage Protocols panel to check the status of network protocols and to enable or disable them. Only the protocols that have been installed appear on this panel. Protocols are installed using the Network - Attachments panel (Printer Definition -> Network -> Attachments).

Select Frequent Tasks -> Manage Protocols to display this panel.

The status of each protocol is displayed in the list box following the protocol type. The status shown includes Enabled, Enabling, Disabled, and Disabling.

To change the state of a protocol, first select the desired protocol and then select Enable to enable it or Disable to disable it.

You can disable a protocol at any time. If the protocol is processing an IPDS job, processing of the job is terminated and the protocol status changes to Disabled. For non-IPDS protocols, such as FTP, the status changes first to Disabling and then to Disabled when the protocol is finished processing the current job.

The help topic displays in a separate Help window inside a Help System viewer. Select the Alt+Tab key to toggle between the Help window and the operator console. Select the Alt+F4 key to close the Help window.
