Verify that MFP devices with multiple identical ports expose the same functionality on all ports (MANUAL)

Note This content applies to the Windows Logo Kit (WLK). For the latest information using the new Windows Hardware Certification Kit (HCK), see Windows HCK User's Guide on the Windows Hardware Dev Center.

Type: Manual Test

Overview

The purpose of this test is to ensure that an MFP device with multiple identical ports expose the same functionality on all ports. For example, if an MFP (printer and scanner) has two USB ports, both ports should be able to print and scan. An MFP that exposes print functionality on one port and scan functionality on the other port will fail this test.

Details

This requirement still allows devices to use USB ports for ?PictBridge? or another picture data protocol. For example, an MFP may contain two USB ports with different functionality, where one USB port is for MFP functionality and one port is for ?PictBridge.? However, there must be a clear distinction in functionality on the MFP for each port.

Command Syntax

Command option Description

SMTask.exe

The test displays the question text.

Troubleshooting

The test will ask ?If this device has multiple, identical physical ports (For example, two USB-B connectors; disregard modem ports), do each of these ports expose the same set of functions (print, scan, fax, storage)?? It will then wait for a button push (Pass, Fail, NotApplicable), and write a WTT pass/fail result.
