Re: Printer policy failed to add (iPrint) printer

Printer Security Level is set to High and this requires SSL/TLS, but ... URL is shown there as ipp. I mean, via iManager.

Maybe the problem is secure printers then, can you make a "test" printer that doesn't require ipps and try to deploy that using your profile?

And also when you inserted the printer in the policy, did you type in:
ipps://10.0.0.123/ipps/HP_LaserJet_P2055_CD1A

Never used secure printing so I don't know if the above link is the correct way to add a secure printer.

Re: Printer policy failed to add (iPrint) printer

Hi and thanks!
Tried and, yes, You're correct, with medium security ... under admin-account there appear printer. Under ordinary user account ... nothing happen, but this is probably connected to iprint.ini, correct?
(1) What settings do You suggest for iprint.ini and
(2) only problem I see is that anyone can print in this case, associating under printer object in eDir does not affect this? As it was with high security! Correct?
More thanks, Alar.

Re: Printer policy failed to add (iPrint) printer

Hi again!
Well, probably solved this. At least ... printers start to appear and ... printing. 😃
We had so far (with ZfD 4.0.1) only NDPS printers. Only installed on ws. iPrint we did use for printing from another subnet, I mean, from subnet where is located machines we don't manage.
(1) In iPrint.ini probably is good idea to have user printers for using, also. I'd set AllowUserPrinters = 2. Not sure, however, about some security. (Can now everyone print to ...) Btw., no need to restart Apache after, settings from iPrint.ini is taken during printer install. Yes, changing anything, need to reinstall printer.
(2) So far we had security set to high, now it need to be medium for work.
(3) Users must have also write access to ndps directory on local machine. We haven't, as we don't allow to write to root directory (I'm talking about Windows XP), so ... probably is need to have some bundle to set those rights.
And ... printer policy associated to user ... install iPrint (if needed) and ... user printer(s). Point to ZCM! 😃
More thanks, Alar.

Re: Printer policy failed to add (iPrint) printer

Yes, ipp printer. I don't know why. When I tried under ordinary user from command line then I saw printer and everything seems to be there, but in error log I see:

Also, with device I see on server where printer is located error:
---

Well, could be under user it can't be installed because users have no rights on Windows for that! But, anyway ... "Not our printer (\\.\DISPLAYV1)"?
Also, I need this to have a way it was/is with ZfD 4.0.1!
More thanks, Alar.
