I'm trying to understand my Konica Minolta Magicolor 2300DL manuals so that I can print to my networked printer from w/in a virtual machine. At one point in the add printer process I'm supposed to enter the printer's network path using http: //ipaddress//ipp.cgi or //ipaddress:80// or //ipaddress:631//. cgi seems to refer to an http script, so I'm guessing ipp.cgi says which script to use. I can't find any info as to when to use the 80 or 631 or what either number stands for.

Are these ports? The magicolor is supposed to use port 9100 as its RAW port which one specifies elsewhere. Do networked printers use more than one port for different purposes?

Good morning,

I'm not sure what the ipp.cgi stands for, but the 80 and 631 look like they're port numbers.

How is your computer hooked up? Is it wired into another computer on the network, or is it connected via a Ethernet cord directly to the network? If it's wired into the network, I usually find it easiest to give the printer a static IP address, and hook it up using a TCP/IP port. What operating system are you using?
