Enabling the IPDS TCP protocol for the IPM feature

Once the TCP/IP LAN connection is installed and the InfoPrint Manager AIX server is configured to support this feature, the IPDS TCP protocol must be enabled.

Do this procedure to enable the IPDS TCP protocol.


  1. Select Frequent Tasks -> Manage Protocols to display the Manage Protocols panel.
  2. Select the IPDS TCP protocol from the list of currently installed protocols.
  3. Select Enable.
  4. Select Close to return to the Main touch panel.
    If the printer LAN protocol is disabled or the physical TCP/IP LAN connection is disrupted, the connection to the InfoPrint Manager AIX server will be lost and you will need to restart the Operations GUI from the printer console.
