Add and configure zones in Print Deploy

To start, in PaperCut MF go to Print Deploy (Enable Printing > Print Deploy) and click Add zone. The Add zone popup is displayed:

  1. In Zone name, type a name that clearly reflects, from a SysAdmin’s perspective, where the zone is (e.g. Building 1).

  2. In Display name, type a name that makes it easy for the users to know where the zone is (e.g. Main Admin Office).

  3. Select the IP range you require:

    • All IP addresses - don’t restrict access to print queues based on an IP address. Use this option if you want to allow access to all computers.

    • Selected range - specifies one or more IP subnets (CIDR) or IP address ranges. You would use a selected range if, for example, you want to set up a zone for each campus or building, and restrict access to print queues outside of that campus or building.

      If you selected Selected range, enter your IP range in one of the following formats:

      • CIDR, for example,
      • IP address range, for example,
  4. If you want to add multiple IP ranges, click Add new and repeat the above steps.

  5. Decide which users to include in the zone. Select:

    • All users - all users in PaperCut NG/MF.

    • Selected user groups - Select which PaperCut NG/MF groups you want to include. If you have a long list of groups, use the filter to fine tune it.

  6. Decide which computers to include in the zone:

    • All computers - all computers using Print Deploy.

    • Computers matching this regex - Add a customised regex expression and validate it with the test hostname field.

  7. Click Save. Your new zone is added to the list of zones on the Print Deploy page.
