Changing the printer's port buffer size has to be done on the printer, not on the PC.The best way to find it is to point your internet browser at the printer's IP address. If it can be done (and not all printers allow this), it'll be in  there somewhere. Look under port settings, or protocol settings, or something like that. Unfortunately I don't have access to your printer so I can't give you the exact details.

One question I should have asked: wgy do you need to increase the port's buffer size? Is there some error indicating this, or is it for some other reason?

The buffer size only *very* rarely needs to be changed. It does not in any way relate to the size of the print file (and even less to the size of the document on the PC).

There was an error coming up for one user. From Canon printer engineer came and advised to change the buffer size and check. That why I was looking for the option.

the  value 9100 is the port number, and changing it may stop the printer working.
sounds like timeout issues, try changing print driver>properties>advanced tab>spool setting to "start printing after the last page has spooled"
