PaperCut Pocket and Hive manual


Choosing the print job delivery method

For each printer you can adjust which edge nodes deliver the print job to the printer, and how the jobs will be delivered to the printer.

Auto delivery

By default, PaperCut determines what method should be used, based on the printer.

Custom print delivery

You can always change how print jobs are delivered by setting up one or two custom delivery methods:

  • Primary Delivery Method - Edge nodes use this method first when trying to deliver print jobs.
  • Secondary Delivery Method - This is the fall back for if the primary method doesn’t work. This is optional.


  1. In the Printers list, click the printer to open the printer details page.

  2. Click the Advanced tab, then select the Custom tab. Sections for the primary and secondary methods are displayed.

  3. Decide if you want to use the queue or IPP method.

    • The queue method - Add a print queue onto a reliable edge node, preferable one you know has access to the printer.
    • The IPP method - Doesn’t involve installing a driver.
  4. Complete the fields for the primary method, and optionally, for the secondary method.

  5. Click Save Changes.

Remember to test your setup!
