How do I Log in?
You’re trying to log in to do some printing. But you can’t log in, so you’ve Googled PaperCut. And here you are.
If that’s you, and you’re a student at your school/university/college, then head over to the Student Login article for some more detailed info on that, and some ideas on how we can hopefully help you find your login details!
…. otherwise, we have a few different ways you can log into PaperCut, which we’ve explained below - all of these assume that you know where your PaperCut Server is (either through URL, or IP address, or Hostname etc) for your local organization.
You’re trying to access your PaperCut details but not too sure where to look? In most organizations, this can be done by clicking on the “Details…” link in the PaperCut Client software that should be running on your desktop:
If you can’t find the above, try finding a shortcut that looks like this and double-clicking it, which will either start the User Client or Web Interface, depending on how PaperCut is installed:
If these cannot be found, we recommend you contact your local IT Administrator or help-desk staff who will be able to assist you further.
Logging into the administration console of PaperCut is simply navigating to the below URL after replacing papercutserver with your local servers DNS name, or IP address:
Note that you have to specify the
/admin part of the URL, otherwise you may be logged in with non-admin level permissions!
If you’re not seeing the Admin dashboard for some reason when logging in as an admin, it’s worth checking out the How to log in as an Admin for some further reasons on why you might see that!
