I am running a windows server 2003 machine.

I was having some problems so I ran cleanspl.exe from the resource kit that you can download from microsoft's site. Once I ran the program it came up with a couple of prompts that I didn't really read (my bad). One of these prompts wanted to make sure that I wanted to remove the standard tcp/ip port. I hit yes like an idiot and removed it.

Now I am trying to get back into here and add my network printer and it won't let me cause the standard tcp/ip port isn't available.

I wen't into server properties and tried to install a new port type. However I don't know which file is the one to use for the standard tcp/ip port.

If you can help I would really appreciate it!!!!!

The steps for 2003 server aren't that much different.

No, I understand how to create a printer with the standard tcp/ip port, my problem is that the standard tcp/ip port has been removed.

Then when I go to printer and faxes -> server properties -> ports (tab) -> add port -> new port type...

I don't know what .INF file to chose to install the standard tcp/ip port.

Is TCP/IP istalled on your system?

If so, have you tried re-installing it?
