WSDMON Port Monitor

The WSDMON port monitor is a printer port monitor that supports printing to network printers that comply with the Web Services for Devices (WSD) technology. The WSDMON port monitor listens for WSD events and updates the printer status accordingly. This port monitor is new for Windows Vista.

The WSDMON port monitor can:

  • Discover network printers and install them.

  • Send jobs to WSD printers.

  • Monitor the status and configuration of the WSD printers and update the printer object status accordingly.

  • Respond to bidirectional (bidi) queries for supported bidi schemas.

  • Monitor bidi Schema value changes and send notifications

WSDMON operates in a manner similar to the TCP/IP port monitor (TCPMON). The following TCPMON commands are not supported in WSDMON:

AddPort

DeletePort

MonitorUI

WSDMON supports the following Xcv commands:

CleanupPort

DeviceID

PnPXID

ResetCommunication

ServiceID

For more information about Web Services for Devices, see the Microsoft Windows SDK documentation.
