The Question is:
Where can I find a list of the port numbers associated with specifc printers.
I.E. HP = 9100
QMS = 35
we have a lps20 printer and we want to setup a print queue to print to this
printer via IP and I dont have the port number associated with it.
HELP PLEASE, Peg.
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard is aware of no central list of port numbers for
various printers, nor would the OpenVMS Wizard assume any consistency
across the various printer models that might be available from any
particular printer vendor. Nor would the OpenVMS Wizard be certain
that any IP ports listed here are correct for any particular printer.
The OpenVMS Wizard recommends checking the printer documentation and
the printer setup page(s) for this information.
PrintServer 20 (LPS20) uses port 170, and requires the DCPS package as
the client. The DCPS client kit is available for various platforms.
In the case of the PrintServer 20 (LPS20 and other PrintServer series)
printers, the recent versions of the DCPS (DECprint) software already
know how to communicate with the printer via IP. Further, LPS20 printers
running V5.1 and later have lpr and telnet running on their respective
well-known ports (ports 515 and 23, respectively), so this discussion
may well be moot.
As for the ports used by other IP-capable printers, and by some of the
common NICs found in printers:
Port Printer or NIC
20nn DECserver terminal servers (those that are IP-capable),
where "nn" is the physical port number

3001 DIGITAL LN15
DIGITAL RapidPrint 500 print server
6869 DIGITAL LN20
9100 Compaq Laser Printer LN16
Compaq Laser Printer LN32
Compaq Laser Printer LNM40
GENICOM LN and microLaser printers
GENICOM RapidPrint MPS100 print server
HP LaserJet printers
Lexmark Optra printers
Tektronix Phaser printers
Xerox DocuPrint N printers
HP JetDirect NICs
Axis 5400 printers (older)
