    Re: Apogee PDF RIP named pipe port installation

    Start menu --> settings --> Printers

    The printers list opens. From that window, select: File --> Server Properties

    Select "ports" tab.

    Select "Add Port" button

    Enter the line below:


    You now have a new port. However, this only works if the PDF Rip has its named pipe input set to "pdfrip." I believe that is the default (what my old Series 3 RIP has at the moment, and I never changed it). If the named pipe is not correct, you will have to open the RIP Tuner and detect what the named pipe lists for a name and modify the line above.

    From here you may create a printer using a PPD generated by the RIP and set its port to the new one you have created. That will direct anything printed to that printer, to the RIP itself.

      "The system cannot find the file specified"
