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.
TIP: To see which driver languages work best with PaperCut NG/MF in regards to controlling, tracking, and giving users the ability to change print job settings at the time of release, check the Supported Printers knowledge base article.
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.
