iPrint, BYOD and Papercut


We are a school using OES and iPrint. We also use papercut. This works well for us. next year students will be bringing their own laptops. These laptops will not have the Novell client.



I was wondering about the options I can have for printing. For example, could I install the iPrint and papercut clients on the BYOD devices and somehow have the user authenticate to print? I know I can have authentication to the papercut client but do I need iPrint authentication in order to print?



Is the iPrint appliance the best way to go? If so, can I still keep my existing iPrint server. Papercut is installed on the main iPrint server.



Not sure what the best approach is.

Re: iPrint, BYOD and Papercut

Hello Thomas,

We use a very similar setup at our college. You have a couple different options:

1. Install the iPrint Client on the student's laptops (there is also a Micro Focus app for mobile devices).

2. Set up web print through Papercut. More info here: https://www.papercut.com/products/ng/manual/applicationserver/topics/mobile-print.html

3. Set it up both ways. It never hurts to give students the option. If they're in a hurry and just need to print one page quick, refer them to your Web print system(basically drag their document into web interface), if they are going to be a regular/heavy user, set up the iPrint client or app on their device.

Re: iPrint, BYOD and Papercut


Thanks for information. If we install the iPrint Client on the student devices how to I set the option for them to login on the client to print. Currently I don't seem to have that capability on my iPrint client.

Re: iPrint, BYOD and Papercut

I am not entirely sure how your environment is set up, specifically your user sync. Our users are all synced with our iPrint appliance via LDAP. Once the student downloads the client from our appliance, they are then prompted to enter their credentials.

This install for the client is found by going to iprintserverIP/ipp. This installer will contain the necessary config to communicate with your iPrint and your user sync.
