Win32_TCPIPPrinterPort Class

The Win32_TCPIPPrinterPort class represents a TCP//IP service access point. For example a TCP/IP printer port.

Note: The SE_LOAD_DRIVER_PRIVILEGE privilege is required on this class.
Namespace value is root/CIMV2.
WMI Provider value is CIMWin32.


  • ByteCount
  • The ByteCount property, when true, causes the computer to count the number of bytes in a document before sending them to the printer and the printer to report back the number of bytes actually read. This is used for diagnostics when one discovers that bytes are missing from the print output.

  • Caption
  • The Caption property is a short textual description (one-line string) of the object.

  • CreationClassName
  • CreationClassName indicates the name of the class or the subclass used in the creation of an instance. When used with the other key properties of this class, this property allows all instances of this class and its subclasses to be uniquely identified.

  • Description
  • The Description property provides a textual description of the object.

  • HostAddress
  • The HostAddress property indicates the address of device or print server

  • InstallDate
  • The InstallDate property is datetime value indicating when the object was installed. A lack of a value does not indicate that the object is not installed.

  • Name
  • The Name property uniquely identifies the service access point and provides an indication of the functionality that is managed. This functionality is described in more detail in the object's Description property.

  • PortNumber
  • The PortNumber property indicates the number of the TCP port used by the port monitor to communitcate with the device.

  • Protocol
  • The Protocol property has two values: 'Raw' indicates printing directly to a device and 'Lpr' indicates printing to device or print server; LPR is a legacy protocol, which will eventually be replaced by RAW. Some printers support only LPR.

  • Queue
  • The Queue property is used with the LPR protocol to indicate the name of the print queue on the server.

  • SNMPCommunity
  • The SNMPCommunity property contains a security level value for the device. For example 'public'.

  • SNMPDevIndex
  • The property SNMPDevIndex indicates the SNMP index number of this device for the SNMP agent.

  • SNMPEnabled
  • The SNMPEnabled property, when true, indicates that this printer supports RFC1759 (Simple Network Management Protocol) and can provide rich status information from the device.

  • Status
  • The Status property is a string indicating the current status of the object. Various operational and non-operational statuses can be defined. Operational statuses are "OK", "Degraded" and "Pred Fail". "Pred Fail" indicates that an element may be functioning properly but predicting a failure in the near future. An example is a SMART-enabled hard drive. Non-operational statuses can also be specified. These are "Error", "Starting", "Stopping" and "Service". The latter, "Service", could apply during mirror-resilvering of a disk, reload of a user permissions list, or other administrative work. Not all such work is on-line, yet the managed element is neither "OK" nor in one of the other states.

  • SystemCreationClassName
  • The scoping system's creation class name.

  • SystemName
  • The scoping system's name.

  • Type
  • The Type property indicates the type of SAP such as 'attached' or 'Redirected'.
