RPM IP Print Action

What it does

Sends your print job to a print server using the IP protocol, also referred to as reverse telnet or direct socket.

Purpose

The IP print action supports sending your print jobs to a print server anywhere. Sometimes it is faster to use LPR or IP printing to send your print jobs to a high capacity printer, compared to Windows raw print.

RPM also manages this transfer end to end, which is something we can't do for Windows print jobs once they reach the Windows spooler.

Setup

  • Host Enter a host name or IP address here for the system to send your print jobs to
