Redirecting Print Jobs to Another Printer

If your print device fails, you can redirect all of the jobs that are scheduled to be printed to that print device to another print device that has been configured as a printer. For this redirection to work, the new print device must be able to use the same print driver as the old print device.

To redirect print jobs, click the Add Port button in the Ports tab, highlight Local Port, and choose New Port. In the Port Name dialog box, type the UNC name of the printer that you want to redirect the jobs to, in the format \\computername\printer_sharename.
