INTELLIscribe: Name Port

Fri, 10/04/2019 - 19:56 By Dave Brooks

This step of the Virtual Printer Port Wizard allows you to enter the name of the virtual printer port and select a port policy. The name is required when creating a new virtual printer port, and it cannot be changed when updating a port. The port name has no size limit and can contain most characters, including spaces.

We recommend the port name be 32 characters or less. You should also use a descriptive name such as "Printer in room 3" or "Office Printer." This name will be the name known to Windows®.


This field should contain the name of the virtual printer port. Each port must have a unique name.

Port Policy

Select the policy that this port should use. Each policy uniquely handles how error situations are handled. For more information, see the Port Policy topic.
