Question about Canon MX700 Office All-In-One InkJet Printer
I am trying to use a Canon Pixma MX700 all-in-one printer over my wired network. First I set up the Canon via USB from my Vista Ultimate PC -- no problem. Next I went to the properties page of the printer, selected the "Ports" tab, added a new "Canon BJNP Port," and filled in the static IP address of the printer. No problem. Unfortunately, the test page failed to print. I have tried all these steps on an XP Pro PC also, with the same result. What am I doing wrong?
Once you have it installed and working on the USB port go to the properties page of the printer.
1) Select the "Ports" tab.
2) Select "Add Port".
3) Select "Canon BJNP Port".
4) Select "New Port".
5) Fill in the IP Address of your printer and select "Next".
Make sure that the Port is checked back in the properties page and select "Apply" and your done. Do a test print and your printer should work on your network. You may still need to fix the settings on your firewall or router to allow access if it does not print.
