Is this the serial or parallel port or is it something else? I tried using the ports and also the IP address of my machine but it gives me the error: "The printer name may only contain up to 127 printable characters."

The location field is basically "free" - it's intended for when you have
multiple similar printers. I have nevertheless completed mine - for
