PaperCut NG is a cross-platform print monitoring application that runs on all major operating systems. The system has been designed to support all platforms for both the client and the server components and to scale from small businesses with 5 users all the way to the largest education sites with 500,000 users or more.
Port 9181 (HTTPS) inbound TCP to the Locally hosted (on-premise) OCR Server
Requires PaperCut MF 19.0 or later installed on the application server
Print Deploy Requirements
Printers and drivers
Print Deploy works with the vast majority of printers. This includes, but is not limited to, print languages such as PostScript, PCL5, PCL5e, PCL6, XPS, Epson ESC/P2, Canon UFR, UFRII and more.
The following driver requirements must be met before Print Deploy will clone the print queue:
The driver must have an INF file (Setup Information file).
The driver must be digitally signed and package aware.
The driver is not a virtual driver like a PDF printer. In other words, the print queue has to point to a physical device or in the case of a Direct Print Find-Me setup, to a local nul-port.
Windows 8, 8.1 and 10, 64-bit
macOS X 10.12+ (Sierra) 64-bit
Coming soon, Linux support.
For an up-to-date list of PaperCut NG/MF firewall ports, see the Firewall Ports used by NG/MF knowledge base article.
The following ports must be open for the end-user client to be able to communicate with the Application Server:
On the client
9174 (HTTPS) outbound TCP port to Application Server
9173 (HTTP) outbound TCP port to Application Server
9175 (HTTP) TCP to localhost only applicable is third party firewalls are active on the client computer.
On the Application Server
9174 (HTTPS) TCP port for Print Deploy clients
9173 (HTTP) TCP port for Print Deploy clients
443 (HTTPS) TCP port to <fill in address here>. For automatic updates of the Print Deploy service and Print Deploy clients.
* The "desktop" class systems such as Windows 8 and 10 only allow 10 simultaneous connections (see Microsoft article). This means that these systems should only be used as a "server" to host print queues on networks with 10 workstations or less.
† SELinux should be disabled prior to installing.
