When printing to IP address a pop up asks for user id and pass
If I set the printer up to print to the IP address, I get a pop up asking for user id and password. When I share the printer it doesn't ask. How do I turn off asking for user id?
I am having some problems sharing since I upgraded to Vista Home Premium 64-bit. I can't get the x86 drivers in the "additional drivers." and I can't install the driver manually because "the architecture isn't supported."
This is related but it is also a separate question, how can i get this to work? Possibly upgrading Vista Home Premium to Business to use "You can use Print Management to manage printers on computers that are running Microsoft® Windows® 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server® 2003, Windows Vista®, or Windows Server 2008."
Re: when printing to IP address a pop up asks for user id...
The part about eliminating the code is right on, thanks.
When a PC shares a printer you can add additional drivers so the drivers are available to various clients that connect to the printer share. There was something I read about a Microsoft Printer Manager that is included with Vista business that may help me. BUT, I prefer to print to the printer directly so if your suggestions work, I'll be fine.

Re: when printing to IP address a pop up asks for user id...
I can definately help with your ID code problem, and maybe with your vista problem.
The ID problem is very simple. Normally when this happens, the copier is set up to use ID codes for copying. When you install the driver, it connects to the machine and collects these type of settings, and configures the driver to the same state as the copier. You have two options to solve this problem. you can either turn off the ID codes in the driver completely, but then your copier must be set to allow print jobs without ID codes, or you can configure the driver with your code, and set it so that it does not ask you again.
both of the options are done by going to the printer driver properties. Click on the "device setting" tab at the top.
If you want to disable the ID codes completely, simply untick the "job accounting" box. click on "Apply" and then on "OK"
If you know your code and you want to configure the driver with your ID code and set it to never ask you for the code again do the following:
Make sure that the "Job accounting" box is ticked. Click on the "settings" button to the right of "job accounting". In the window that appears tick "Allow password setting". Enter your ID code and password (If you have a password), and untick "Confirm ID/password when printing". If you like you can click on the "verify" button. This will check that the ID and password that you've entered is valid or not. This is very handy feature if you are unsure if you've entered the correct info. When you're done with the afore mentioned settings, click on "ok", "Apply" (If active), and then on "OK"
Now for your vista problem. I'm not too sure of the exact problem that you're experiencing, but from what I can make out from your description it sounds like its a driver issue. I would say go to the canon software site and download the x64 driver for your product. The URL for the site is : http://software.canon-europe.com. once you are on the site all you need to do is specify your model, the operating system (In your case Windows Vista) and the language that you want the software to be in. The site will supply you with a list of different software that you can download, make sure that you download the Vista x64 driver. The site will clearly state that the driver is compatible with x64.
Hope all this info is helpful. Have fun, and don't forget to rate me.

Utility / Administrator settings (pass:12345678) / Network settings / TCP/IP settings. Select auto IP, or enter it manually. You can check IP address by printing Configuration Page: Utility / User Settings / Printer setting / Print Report / Configuration Page. Press start. Good luck!
Usually the setting of yout network with your copier/printer setting is mismatched so your printer.copier did not understand. What you can do you should check the system setting of your copier/printer and print it out then you should find the driver of your printer/copier in the add printer hardware secrtion in control panel of your computer network . Before you reinstall it , you should uninstall the previous driver so there is no conflict when you reinstall new driver . Try it
Just reinstall the Printer on the Main PC install/Setup all software again, set for shared, Then, go to the clients PC's & set up that printer for NETWORKED Printer, Browse for it... should get you back.
Installing a network printer allows multiple users and computer to share a single printer, rather than having numerous personal printers throughout the home or office. When installing a network printer, make sure it is located in a centralized place so that all users can access it conveniently, then install the software on each machine. You may find that newer versions of Windows may already have the necessary drivers installed.
Finding the Printer on the NetworkTo install the printer using an IP address, go to Start>Control Panel>Printers and Faxes and then click the Add Printer icon. Next, clickCreate a new port, then select Standard TCP/IP Port from the drop-down menu. You will then be asked to enter an IP address. Enter the IP address of the print server and click Next. You will be asked to select the printer manufacturer and the model from the list. If you do not see your printer listed, insert the disk that came with the printer and click Have Disk. If you do not know the IP address of the printer, you can sometime select Browse for printer in the beginning of the process. If the networked printer is attached to another computer is being shared, you will need to enter the name of the computer followed by the share name of the printer. For example: \\computername\printername. Spending extra on a network printer can save you money in the long run. Network printers can be higher grade and print cartridges can last longer than personal ink jet printers.
I would print out a menu map from the printer and check the IP address that is set is the same as the one in the ports tab in the printer properties. If this is not the case then change one to match the other. Also make sure that the printers IP address is set manually and not by DHCP because DHCP will change the address every time it is switched on/off.
Follow the instructions below if you run into any configuration problems report back to this site and I will be notified by email.
- Scan to E-mail allows a scanned document to be distributed to one or more e-mail addresses. This feature allows e-mails to be sent from the printer directly to an SMTP mail server.
NOTE: This solution assumes Microsoft Internet Explorer is being used as the web browser. Other web browsers may vary. You may need to contact your System Administrator to perform this solution, as it requires knowledge of the network’s email system.
The printer will have to be configured for TCP/IP (IP Address, Subnet Mask, Broadcast Address, Gateway Address). Before you begin, print a System Settings List and make sure the printer has an IP Address and that Internet Services is enabled. See the Related Items below for additional information.

On most printer/scanner equipment there is an user tools or options icon or button. Look in there for system settings,sub-section interface settings.That is where you will find your devices IP address. Be very careful not to change these settings, just look don't touch.
1. Printing from one computer directly to the printer requires a crossover cable. The reason they are telling you to use a router is so you can use a standard wired cable. You can print direct to the printer from the ethernet port via a crossover cable.
2. On the settings. First, go into the nework settings and turn OFF the auto dhcp. What it is most likely doing it switching the IP address on you. Set that to manual or static, then enter the appropriate IP address.
Set that IP address in the driver under the port configuration.
So in order, can the router unless you are going to run your network through it also. And use a crossover cable to run directly from the conputer to the printer. Then turn off the AUTO on the IP address settings and make the IP address static.
Then print out a configuration page to confirm the IP settings then set the printer up from there.
The crossover cable for direct computer to printer is te key.
Any other questions ask away.
