- Click on the Add to add a new printer. A dialog window will be displayed.
- Fill in the following:
- Name – A user-friendly name of the printer within the account.
- Address – the IP address or hostname of the MFD in the network.
Protocol – Select the communication protocol to the device according to the following table:
Protocol Usage Notes TCP (default) Direct delivery to printer via TCP port 9100 SAFEQ Cloud has control over print process, show errors in the log IPP Direct delivery to printer via IPP protocol SAFEQ Cloud controls delivery, supports both IPP and IPPS printing Spool (deprecated) Uses operating system printing sub-system (CUPS) The operating system delivers to printer
If you wish to use IPP printing, enter the Printer IPP URL for the destination printer:If printing via IPPS/HTTPS to the printer, and the device uses a self-signed certificate or other non-trusted certificates, go to the relevant Document Output service and enable Ignore SSL errors for IPPS protocol.
Vendor – Select the MFD vendor from the drop-down list.SAFEQ Cloud uses the vendor type to determine how the print data stream should be translated from the Universal Driver
Output Type – Select the output type for the print job data. The output types listed are based on the vendor you selected and correspond to those supported by SAFEQ Cloud. You should only select the Raw output type if using a third-party print driver instead of the SAFEQ Cloud universal driver. In this case, the job data will be passed to the printer unmodified. The other types – Postscript2, Postscript3, Postscript (deprecated), PCL6, or PDF, depending on availability – should be selected when using universal driver for printing.
Create matching print queue – This option will automatically create a matching Print queue after the current printer is added. The default settings for this Print queue are: identical name with the printer, type Direct (Push) Print queue, linked to the Printer, available by default.
- Reverse Path Finisher – Select this option if the device uses a reverse path finisher.
- Monochrome printer – This option indicates the printer that can only print black and white. If enabled, reports will not contain any information regarding color pages.
- Enable driver collation – If your MFD doesn't support copy collation, enable this option for the copy collation to be performed by the driver. This feature will disable advanced finishing options (for example, stapling and booklet) and increase the job size.
- Service – Select the Document Output service from the drop-down list that will transmit the print job data to this device. If no service exists, you can add it by clicking Add.
Embedded configuration – Select the embedded configuration from the drop-down list. In case no embedded configuration exists, you can add it by clicking Add. In that case, a new dialog window will be displayed.
