C.0 Traditional iPrint Client Authentication

Desktop and laptop workstations based on the Windows or Mac OS can install a traditional iPrint client to facilitate printing to printers managed by iPrint Appliance, as well as those managed by traditional Novell Open Enterprise Server (OES) iPrint servers.

Printers managed by iPrint Appliance, as well as those managed by traditional OES print servers, can be configured as “Public” or “Secure.” When a traditional iPrint client attempts to send a print job to a “secure” printer, iPrint Appliance (or OES iPrint server) requires the traditional iPrint client to authenticate. This authentication is performed either through a single sign-on experience or manually.
