PaperCut NG & PaperCut MF Manual

Switch to using SNMPv3

PaperCut NG/MF uses SNMP to perform:

  • page count validation using hardware checks

  • toner levels and notifications

  • printer status, for example, to block jobs in error being released.

By default PaperCut NG/MF uses SNMPv1/v2c, which usually requires no configuration. If your organization has a policy in place that does not allow SNMPv1/v2c traffic on the network, then you can configure PaperCut to use SNMPv3 instead.

For a full description of how both versions work with PaperCut NG/MF, take a look at the knowledge base article: Is PaperCut compatible with SNMPv3?
