Installing SAFEQ Cloud PC Client

SAFEQ Cloud PC Client is a desktop application that can be installed on end-user workstations to create print queues and install the SAFEQ Cloud universal driver automatically. For its features, see SAFEQ Cloud PC Client.

The Client can operate in two modes: Local storage mode and Gateway mode. For details, see SAFEQ Cloud PC Client overview.
Both modes can be used in Pure Cloud printing scenario, but we recommend using the Local mode. In the Pure Cloud printing scenario, the Gateway mode does not allow Push printing and releasing the print job from the Mobile application.

  1. To download the latest version, go to https://portal.ysoft.com.
  2. Log in to SAFEQ Cloud Web UI. Go to Customer information to see your Domain.
  3. Run the Client installer file. On the Server parameters screen, fill in the Domain in the Server address or host name and in Account domain name.
  4. In User authentication:
    1. Select Custom login to SAFEQ Cloud server if you wish to log in with your Customer admin account (Local account).
    2. Select OpenID Connect if you wish to log in with your Azure AD account and the authentication to SAFEQ Cloud is set up as client-based.
  5. If you wish to use the Local storage mode, select Enable local storage and direct print job delivery.
  6. When the installation is finished, you will see the Client icon in your system tray. Right-click it and select Login.
    Note that if the option to Automatically trust new clients/servers is disabled in SAFEQ Cloud Web UI, you will need to authorize each end user’s SAFEQ Cloud PC Client in Infrastructure > Endpoints.
  7. The print queues you created in SAFEQ Cloud Web UI will be synchronized and visible in your Printers and scanners.

For silent installation and the available command line parameters, see Installing SAFEQ Cloud PC Client on Windows and Installing SAFEQ Cloud PC Client on macOS.

For deployment via Microsoft Intune, see Deploy SAFEQ Cloud PC Client using Microsoft Intune.
