Konica Minolta IWS Gen 2 Cloud Terminal

Prerequisites

  • Make sure that you have Cloud Terminal Integration enabled (for information on how to do this, see the  Enable Cloud terminal integration guide).
  • Make sure that you have a signing certificate selected. To check this, log in to SAFEQ Cloud Web UI and navigate to Security > PKI and encryption. The Signing certificate field must not be blank.
  • Konica Minolta MarketPlace is installed on the MFD.

Limitations

Card readers

  • YSoft Card Readers: If you plan to use your MFDs with the YSoft Card Reader in KM mode, you must configure the Cloud Terminal application as a start-up application (kiosk mode). This limitation does not apply to Card Readers in Keyboard mode. Note that the MFDs must have a correct Loadable Device Driver installed. 
  • Keyboard Wedge: In order to use Card Readers with Keyboard Wedge, the MFDs must have a correct Loadable Device Driver installed.
  • If you use a card reader in the Keyboard mode, the users won't be able to swipe their cards when the input field is focused.
  • Other Card Readers: See the manufacturer's documentation for installation and setup.

Cloud print

  • Media type selection is not supported.
  • Toner save (economy printing) is not supported.
  • Printing 2 or more pages per sheet is not supported.

Copying

  • The Zoom function depends on MFD's ability to autorotate the original. If this function is restricted or not supported, zooming may not work as expected. Autorotate restriction is configurable in device administration: Utility > Administrator Settings > System Settings > Restrict User Access > Restrict Operation.
  • The Zoom function depends on MFD's detection of paper tray's paper sizes. For some devices, you may need to configure the paper sizes in paper trays manually.

Scanning

  • Automatic paper size detection depends on the MFD's capabilities. A3 models generally have good detection, but smaller A4 devices do not. For example, if you put legal-sized paper (8.5 x 14.0 inches) in the paper tray of such MFD, it will be detected as A4, and the scan will be cropped.
    When scanning mixed paper sizes, the paper size of the document is set to the largest paper in the tray, and smaller pages have blank spaces.

Accounting

  • Accounting is not supported when using Native copy or Advanced (native) scan functionality.

Proxy settings

If your MFD needs to access the public Internet via a dedicated (non-local) gateway, such as a VPN with a proxy server, you must perform the following steps in the MFD settings of the browser.

  1. On the MFD panel home screen, tap Web Browser.

  2. In the Web Browser, tap Menu and then tap Settings.
  3. Authenticate with the Administrator password.
  4. Tap Proxy Setting.
  5. Check the Use Proxy checkbox and enter the Proxy Server address and ports.

  6. If the Proxy server needs authentication, check also Enable Proxy Authentication checkbox and fill Account Name and Password in Proxy Authentication settings.
  7. Tap OK to save the proxy settings.
