Changing printer names and connections

Changing printer names and connections

After adding a new local or remote printer with the Printer Manager, you can check printer settings by selecting the printer from the list, then selecting Examine from the Printer menu. 

To change the name of a local printer, select the printer from the list, select Rename from the Printer menu, then enter the new name. The new name appears in the Printer Manager window in the ``Name'' field.

To change the description, model, connection (device), or serial communication parameters for a printer, select the printer from the list, select the appropriate item from the Settings menu, then select the setting from the displayed list of options.

Select the printer model (interface script) that most closely matches your printer. For information on customized printer scripts, see ``Creating printer interface scripts''.


NOTE: You cannot change the name or model of a remote printer. When you select Connection from the Settings menu for a remote printer, you see the host to which the remote printer is attached.
