When you have installed the printer driver via a network and specified a temporary port (not the port you are going to use), specify the port settings by following the procedure below.
Check these settings also when data cannot be transmitted via the network.
The port settings require the machine's IP address. Check the machine's IP address on the control panel display or by printing the USER'S DATA LIST.
For instructions on how to check the machine's IP address on the control panel, see "Setting the IP Address (MF4380dn/MF4370dn Only) (Related information)." For printing the USER'S DATA LIST, see "Printing Reports and Lists Manually (Related information)."
