[Legacy] Hotfix to support PaperCut on iOS 6 (iOS Printing & AirPrint)

KB Home   |   [Legacy] Hotfix to support PaperCut on iOS 6 (iOS Printing & AirPrint)

Please note that this information pertains to an older PaperCut BYOD printing solution called iOS Print which will only work on macOS PaperCut servers. However we recommend a newer solution called Mobility Print which is much more versatile and robust. It also can be installed on any type of PaperCut server and enable BYOD printing for a broader variety of devices.

Update - 10th October 2012:

After upgrading to iOS 6 on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, users may no longer be able to access PaperCut tracked and controlled printers. This is has been addressed in version 12.4.19158. Please download this version and install. You’ll need to perform the upgrade on both the Primary PaperCut Server (Application Server) and the macOS system hosting the iOS AirPrint queues.
