Re: Force black and white printing from mobile devices

Jump to solution

We actually do have XSA already enabled. And the mobile jobs are set to print as an exception, however they come out in color. Is there a setting I'm unaware of that will convert them to b&w?

That isn't possible.

 

Closest thing would be to set it to use XSA, then everyone on a PC would have to have a code set on the PC, or to prompt for one when using color. At which point the jobs that come without a code (ie the mobile jobs) would be done as an exception and print BW.

 

A convoluted mess really, but the only known method, what you are asking it to do, I can't imagine them developing solely because too many things use IPP and there isn't a good reason to exclude those jobs specifically as opposed to any job.

 

My guess is that it is in a common area in which it shows up to customers in a sort of retail location, but in that case I think they would just tell you to use a guest wireless(they don't do Airprint/MOPRIA) or set it to only accept jobs from specific IP addresses.

On the AltaLink series Is there a way to restrict IPP Jobs (Google Cloud Print, AirPrint, Mopria jobs) to just black and white? Or to automatically convert all IPP to b&w?
