PaperCut is an enterprise level application designed to be managed and control from a central location. Multi-server environments are common in large organizations and PaperCut NG handles them with ease. All servers (or systems hosting locally attached desktop printers) can be configured to report back to the central Application Server. This ensures that all management, logging and control is centralized on the one location.
The Print Provider component is included in the standard PaperCut NG Download. On the Windows platform, it’s an installer option listed in the installed wizard as “Secondary print server installation”.
On the Mac, the installation package is called “PaperCut NG Secondary Server Installation”. No separate download is required.
This release contains an updated Java version which no longer supports 32-bit workstations. If you have any 32-bit users launching the User Client or Release Station from a network share, see this Knowledge Base article for more information.
