Soft Proofing with CPP&L using a printer I don’t own?



I’m sending a print job out to a firm that can print larger than my Pro 1000 using their Pro 6100. They will also use Professional Print & Layout as the job output software.

When I soft proof using Canon Professional Print & Layout software with my Pro 1000 selected as the printer but using the Pro 6100 version of the paper stocks .icc profile I suspect that the soft proof has rendered as if I’m using Pro 1000 but with the mismatched .icc profile? And not as if I’m using a Pro 6100 with the matching .icc profile?

If the former is correct how can I trick the software into thinking I have a Pro 6100? When adding a printer to the relevant field in the software, this is achieved by the software automatically searching for nearby/available printers rather than from a drop down list of all compatible canon printers. Both have 12 inks, perhaps the soft proof render will be the same regardless of which printer is available to be selected.
