Welcome to Exam Notes by Dumps4shared! In this article, we
will cover Core 1 objective 3.10 Given a scenario, configure SOHO multifunction
devices/printers and settings.

 

Duplexing

Let’s start by looking at a multifunction printer. In the image
below, we have a network connected device that is capable of printing on both
sides of the paper, known as duplexing, through the use of an adapter on the
printer. This can save quite a bit of paper. Duplexing is accomplished by
printing the odd pages first, reorienting the paper, feeding it back into the
printer, and then printing the even pages.

Collating and
Orientation

Another printer feature is collating. Collating is where the printed
pages are arranged in a pre-determined order.

There are two types of orientations used in printers. The first
is portrait mode where the output reads from top to bottom as a regular letter.
The second mode is landscape mode in which the page is printed with its long
side facing the top. This is good for materials that are wider than they are
high.

Print Quality

You can also adjust the quality of the printer output by
choosing the paper type and size/quality. For example, change paper type to
Photo paper if you are printing pictures.

Printer Sharing

Printer device sharing is very dependent on how it is set up.

Wired printers are best for office use as the Ethernet
connections to other PCs are consistent. Start by connecting a workstation
printer and sharing it. The printer can be connected to the workstation using
USB, a legacy serial port, or through wireless. Once installed, the printer can
be shared by the workstation through a number of ways. For example, an ad-hoc
share where a one-to-one connection involving just two PCs and one printer can
be used. A Bluetooth connection is an example of this type.

Wireless printers open up a multitude of options. Wireless printers
contain their own integrated print servers and do not require connection to a
workstation. Devices can print directly to the printer through wireless and as
a result, these printers can be optimally placed in the workspace. Workstations
can connect directly to the printer using 802.11(a,b,g,n,ac) or Bluetooth. If
the printer is configured properly, it is capable of remote printing or cloud
printing, making it possible to instantly deliver a hard copy of a document
directly to the device from practically anywhere.

Sharing and
Security

Remember to think about security when planning this
configuration! Just putting a printer on the Internet exposes it to attacks. Securely
configure the device with user authentication because otherwise, anyone can
access the data being sent.

Hard drive caching

Expect not to have any semblance of privacy unless you are
encrypting your transmissions. Also remember that unless configured differently,
the print job is spooled or stored on a hard drive until the printer is ready.
This method is known as hard drive caching. Users who will be using the device
remotely should be properly authenticated.

In the case of a classroom or learning institution, a public
share may be acceptable. This would not be the case for a bank. Also, remember
that the printer will have its own interface that can be used to access the
features and functions of the device. It is important to be aware of the
Operating System settings for the device which can override the printer’s
applet. Check both to be sure.

TCP/Bonjour/AirPrint

So how does one connect to a wireless printer? The material here
will apply to either Apple or Microsoft software.

The most common way to connect to a freestanding wireless
printer is through its IP address (TCP/IP). You can do this the hard way by
manually installing the printer or in the case of Apple or Apple compatible
products, the Bonjour service which will quickly find the device for you. An
easy way is to use AirPrint, a driverless program that can work from your
smartphone and will simply print it for you. Any combination of these will get
you going. In all cases, TCP will be the underlying carrier.

That’s all for objective 3.10. Good luck on the test!
