DPRNT is a macro function that lets the machine control communicate with external devices. The Next-Generation Control (NGC) lets you output DPRNT statements over a TCP network.

If setting 261 is set to TCP Port, setting 263 lets you specify the TCP port where the control sends DPRNT statements. On the PC, you can use any terminal program that supports TCP.

Use the port value along with the machine’s IP address in the terminal program to connect to the machine’s DPRNT stream. For example, if you use the terminal program PUTTY:

  1. In the basic options section, type the machine’s IP address and the port number in Setting 263.
  2. Select the Raw or Telnet connection type.
  3. Click “Open” to start the connection.

PUTTY can save these options for subsequent connections. To keep the connection open, select "Enable TCP keepalives" in the "Connection" options.

To check the connection, type ping in the PUTTY terminal window and press enter. The machine sends a pingret message if the connection is active. You can establish up to (5) simultaneous connections at a time.
