Use PowerShell to view info about printer ports

Another useful cmdlet is Get-PrinterPort, which allows you to retrieve a list of printer ports installed on a print server. For example, the following command displays information about all ports on HOST7 of the Standard TCP/IP Port type:

PS C:\> Get-PrinterPort -ComputerName HOST7 | where Description -like “*TCP*”

Name                 ComputerName         Description         
———                 ———————-         —————-         
———–     HOST7                         Standard TCP/IP Port TCPMON.DLL
