Client/workstation configuration

In a clustered environment the behavior of PaperCut NG on the workstations is identical to that of a non-clustered environment. The one exception, however, is in terms of configuration - configure the clients to connect to the Virtual Server rather than directly connecting to a node (i.e. make the network connections via virtual server's designated IP address). The changes necessary are:

  1. Update User ClientThe User Client tool is an add-on that resides on a user's desktop. It allows users to view their current account balance via a popup window, provides users with the opportunity to confirm what they are about to print, allows users to select shared accounts via a popup, if administrators have granted access to this feature, and displays system messages, such as the "low credit" warning message or print policy popups.'s configuration file config.properties with the Virtual Server's details as per Step 10 - Client Configuration.

  2. Ensure that any URL's pointing to PaperCut NG's web administration and user interfaces; http://[server]:9192/admin and http://[server]:9192/user user the virtual server's name. For example, any links on the organization's intranet site or links supplied to other SysAdmins.
