Delivering iPrint Printers Silently

Hi All,

We do not have ZCM in our environment but we do have iPrint. As a deployment tool we have a Dell KACE K1000 appliance. What I would like to know is how can we deliver iPrint printers automatically to workstations without users having to choose them from the web page.

I can use KACE to work out the logic of which workstations require which printers but what I need is the commands via a batch file or VB script that installs iPrint printers.

I have found this in cool solutions but want to know if there is another way or if this document is still relevant:

Cool Solutions: Installing iPrint Printers via a Batch File and ZENworks

Thanks in advance

Re: Delivering iPrint Printers Silently

I would take a look at iprntcmd command to add the printers.

You should be able to install the printers and set the Default. It is still command line based but should do what you are wanting with the KACE logic.

Re: Delivering iPrint Printers Silently

Like rhuhman said you could use the iprntcmd, to install silently you could do: iprntcmd -a no-gui default ipp://<host_address>/ipp/<printer_name>

Pashar, did you ever solve this issue? We are migrating to KACE from ZCM but keeping iPrint.

Thanks!
