Question about Canon imageRUNNER C3200 Copier
How do I finish configuring TCP/IP printer settings for a C3200? The machine has an IP address from DHCP, but in the 2nd part of TCP/IP printer configuration, XP doesn't recognize the network interface installed in the machine. There are several selections for Canon devices, and a custom setting. What interface do I select, or do I need to use 'Custom', or whatever, to finish the configuration? I can arrange to share the setup screen over the internet, if that will help. I have machines to configure in 2 locations, C3200s and 6000s, but the stores I'm dealing with don't have a service contract with any local Canon dealers. I'm a computer/networking tech, not a copier tech. I believe I just need this last little piece of the puzzle to get their copiers back to running as network printers. Can anyone guide me?.
It is not a good idea to use DHCP for your LAN printer(s) because if the DHCP server issues a different ip address to the printer, all user(s) in the network who prints to the printer will not be able to print anymore.
Use static ip address and assign one within your network ip address.
Secondly, the protocol on the printer and on the pc has to match (usually RAW protocol). So set it RAW on the LAN printer and RAW on printer setting on the pc.
Hope that helps and good luck.

Tcp/ip printing, well first you have to check if your printer has a good IP, lbetter if you place the printer to have a static IP address than DHCP. try the settings below
192.168.001.xxx (printer IP)
255.255.255.0 -subnet mask class c
192.168.001.001 - gateway address same to all PCs
for the computer, just install the printer as a local printer using "standard TCP/IP port" then on custom, make sure you select LPR then set the printer's IP address to the Printer name or IP.
do make sure that the printer is pingable in the network once you place a static IP to it.

Through the keyboard in printer features,after entering ip address you must go to maintenance?restart printer?? give copier up to 5 mins to spit out config page..job done?
If I understand your question properly I can help you. Press the "additional functions" button which is located to the right of the display about halfway down the the keypad. It has an asterisk look to it and what I believe is supposed to be a "look" of a human head. LOL. Press it and you will see a menu. Two columns appear. The last item of the left column should say system settings. Press it. I am doing this from memory so you may have improvise as my memory sucks. Once you press system settings you should see a new menu, unless you IT guy has blocked access to these features as many do. In which case I cannot help. In the event you indeed do have access you should see a new menu. Since I do not have a machine in front of me we can struggle together. Once you have selected system settings you will see a new menu that the second column in the right should say "network settings".Press it. Then you will see on the second tab tcp /ip settings. Press it. At this point you can change the IP address settings. The area where you are now will also allow you to change the DNS server settings and just about everything you might want. Once you have made the changes you wish to make......back out by pressing reset till you get back to the main copy screen. Now in order for the changes you have made to take effect you must turn the machine off and back on using the power switch located at the right side of the copier, at the rear of the right side, about halfway down the machine.Turn the power off, wait a few seconds , then back on. Within 60 seconds the copier will accept the the new network changes . i hope this helps you and take care

Are you talking about creating a printer port in Windows to print to?
You can use a normal RAW 9100 port (just choose custom, and it will set it at that)
But I suggest setting the copier with a static IP.
By leaving it to DHCP, if you set any machine to use that address, if if "flops around" you'll lose the pointers to that address. Just go into the web interface on the copier to set the static IP.
Your question was just slightly confusing to read. I hope that's what you are asking for.
