Mobility Print is now supported by offline Site Servers

The simplicity and versatility of Mobility Print is now supported with the seamless failover of Site Servers. Not only can users have choice and freedom to print from whatever device is at their disposal, SysAdmins can have the confidence that their Mobility Print network will be always available when using Site Servers.

Extending the integration between online Site Servers and Mobility Print, offline mode support has been added to provide networks utilising Mobility Print the continuous availability of printing resources that Site Servers provide.

Restrict printer access through Mobility Print based on subnets

With the use of subnet filtering, you can now restrict which printers are available for each subnet at your organization. Mobility Print allows printers to only be made available to specified groups or users. So in a college for example, you might have all student devices on a different subnet to the staff devices, and want each of these groups to have access to a different set of printers.

This is also suitable for sites with different subnets across multiple locations. So if for example you are like PaperCut and offices in the US, the UK and Australia, and each location is on their own subnet, only printers in that office on that subnet will be presented to users, eliminating confusion and user errors. 

Detailed instructions have been included in the Mobility Print Help Centre to assist in the configuration of these sub-net filters.

Added security through Mobility Print with per job authentication mode

For customers using Mobility Print with either PaperCut NG or PaperCut MF, you can now quickly and easily set the printer authentication mode for each individual printer . By default, the authentication mode is set to “per device”, which means users details are remembered for the device they are printing from. However by clicking on the Select Printers option of the interface, you can now select the option “authenticate per job”, which means user details will need to be re-entered for each print job. This will help to provide extra security on shared devices, as user authentication will be required for each print job.

Please note that per job authentication is not supported on Windows devices. If you configure per job authentication for a printer, then that printer will not be available in the Windows Printer installer. If a printer had previously been installed on a Windows device, and the configuration for that printer is changed to Per job authentication, then any print jobs sent to that printer will be rejected.

This update is available with the current version of Mobility Print. To see all the changes which have been made to Mobility Print, go to the Mobility Print Help Center
