The IP address or DNS name of the Print SCU. If this parameter is a null reference (Nothing in VB), the IP address will be that of the local computer.
Port number of the Print SCU. If this parameter is 0, the port number will be that of the first available port.
The IP address or DNS name of the Print SCP.
Port number of the Print SCP.
The Called AE Title (AE Title of the Print SCP).
The Calling AE Title (AE Title of the Print SCU).
The SOP/Meta SOP Classes supported by the Print SCU. If none of the Meta SOP Classes is specified, the Basic Grayscale Print Management Meta SOP Class will be specified automatically.
true if the Association was established successfully; false if the Association request was rejected by the Print SCP.
The Association must be established successfully before any of the print management operations can be performed. This method will first try to connect to the Print SCP. If successful, it will then try to establish the Association. This method will not return until the Association is accepted/rejected by the Print SCP, or an error occurs.
The method GetAssociateRejectInformation can be used to get information about the Association rejection in case the Association request was rejected by the Print SCP.
The supportedClasses parameter specifies those SOP/Meta SOP Classes that are supported by the Print SCU itself. Once the Association is established, the method IsClassSupported can be used to test whether a particular SOP/Meta SOP Class is supported on the Association (and hence by the Print SCP).
For an example, refer to Associate.
