Working with the local Xerox printer tech, we got the driver installed on the server and tested printing.
But he wanted to show me some things under the “Configure Port” option, but when we tried to do so, we got the following error message:
An error occurred during port configuration. Access is denied.
I was stumped, as I knew we were logged on as an administrator. I even tried using Print Management service.
I then found a helpful step-by-step solution to this problem over on the GeeksOnTech website. Their post includes screen shots, but here is a summary of the steps:
- Open up Devices & Printers
- Highlight the printer you want to change, then click on Print Server Properties from the menu bar
- On the next window, click the Ports tab, and then at the bottom of that same window click Change Port Settings
- Now select your printer, and then click Configure Port…
Hope this helps!
