Printers: IPP printing via Windows

This print method based on the Internet Print Protocol (IPP) is recommended for Linux and Mac platforms.

It can be used on Window 10 as well, but please note that the installation of the UUBlack/UUColour queues is easier and quicker than the IPPPrint queue.

  • You need to be connected to the UU network to install and use this print method.

  • Step 1

  • Step 2

    When installing the feature “Internet Printing Client” for the first time you need to check if this feature is activated on your Windows 10 device.

    • Type “Turn Windows Features on or off” in the Windows Search box on the desktop.
    • Make sure the Internet Printing Client is ON and then restart your device.

  • Step 3

    Add the IPP printer now:

    • In the menu “Add Printers & scanners”, select the option “The printer that I want isn’t listed”
    • Type in the path to the IPP printer: https://myprint.uu.nl/printers/IPPPrint/.printer
    • Now press “Next”
    • Enter your credentials, like in this example, username: soliscom\janssen001

  • Step 4

    Configure your printer in the Control Panel menu, Devices and Printers.

    • Right-click on the printer icon “IPPPrint on https://myprint.uu.nl”
    • Select “Printer Properties”

  • Step 5

    • Go to the tab Advanced, then click “Printing Defaults” in the lower left corner and then “Printing Options”
    • The default setting is double sided.

  • Step 6

    • To print only Black and White: Change the option “Xerox Black and White” to “ON” .
    • To print in colour if the original has such pages: Turn the option “Xerox Black and White” to “OFF (Use document colour)”.
    • Select “Apply”.

  • Step 7

    Go to Advanced, then Printing Defaults, then Advanced again. And choose the following settings:

    • Job ID: “Disable JobID”
    • Driver > TrueType Font: “Download as Softfont”
    • Select “Apply”

  • Step 8

    Go to the tab “Ports”, then at the lower right corner, select “Configure Port”.

  • Step 9

    • Check the username.

    You can use the default format, like soliscom\janssen001

    • Also valid: janssen001@soliscom.uu.nl
    • Please note: when you change your Solis password, remember to change it here as well.
    • Select “Apply”

  • Step 10

    Go to the tab “Configuration” and enter the following settings:

    • Check the bi-directional communication is set to OFF.
    • Check if your favorite printer is a model C8055. This has default 6 trays.
    • Finisher: Office finisher LX
    • Job storage module: Not installed
    • Select “Apply”

  • Step 11

    Go to the tab “Administration” and enter the following information:

    • For Configuration choose: (for example) C8055.
    • Select “Apply”

    You’ve now finished setting up IPP printing.
