Unlike LPR, SPM uses port 9100 by default for the destination port, and randomly selects any open source port greater than 1023 as the source port.
To install an SPM port:
- Click Create new port in the Add Printer Wizard.
- Type the Internet Protocol (IP) address (or host name) of the target device (the port name is automatically filled in, but you can modify the port name if you do not like the suggested port name).
- When you continue the wizard, SPM attempts to make its initial query about the device and configures the device, based on the SNMP responses. If the printer model and options are learned using SNMP, you do not have to choose the printer, and the printer is automatically configured.
