B126.96.36.199 Device associates an ICC profile
Devices using a vendor-supplied ICC profile or profiles must associate this profile or profiles with the device.
Devices that create sRGB output must associate the "sRGB Color Space Profile.icm" Windows default ICC profile with the device. The requirements for sRGB are defined in IEC 61966-2-1 Multimedia systems and equipment – Colour measurement and management – Part 2-1: Colour management – Default RGB colour space – sRGB, listed in “Printers References.”
B188.8.131.52 Network printer supports port 9100 and LPR
Network-connected printers must support TCP/IP standards for Line Printer Remote (LPR) and Line Printer Daemon (LPD) (RFC 1179), Port 9100 printing (raw mode printing), or both types.
B184.108.40.206 Port monitor software meets DDK guidelines
Any port monitor or language monitor software provided with a print device must adhere to the “port monitors” section in the Windows DDK and accurately report errors and support bidirectional communication as defined in the Windows DDK.
B220.127.116.11 Device is available immediately following installation
The user must not have to restart the system after device installation in order to print.
B18.104.22.168 Print device provides non-legacy port connection
The use of a USB, IEEE 1394, or network interface port connection is required for printers. No proprietary solutions are acceptable; however, other legacy port connections may be present on the device.
A USB to printer port (IEEE 1284, or “parallel”) adapter must comply with all related USB specifications, including:
USB 1.1 or later.
Universal Serial Bus Class Definition for Printing Devices, Version 1.0 or later.
Network printers must meet the requirements in Section B7.1
Printers use non-legacy port connections such as USB, IEEE 1394, or Ethernet. Printers can also include a legacy parallel interface in addition to the required non-legacy port connections. USB-to-printer port adapters are not considered an alternative non-legacy interface.
