(MAC OS) Airprint & Accounting

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

I'am wondering if it's possible to print by Airprint if accounting (Xerox Standard Accounting) is enabled. Google didn't find the answer for me. Hopfully there is someone who knows more about this.

 

Thanks in advice

Yes and no....

 

Apple makes Airprint and does all the development. It is a very simple tech, basically just a protocol, but Apple can't account for the code used by other Print manufacturers, and won't allow them to add to Airprint like MOPRIA does with a "Print Service Plugin".

 

What that means is , you gotta do some workarounds. I believe all the Connectkey family of printers can do this, I do not know if smaller devices like Phasers can. I wrote this up a while ago so no guarantees, and definitely not officially supported ;-) But it has worked for most who have tried.

Airprint, and Mopria do not have Accounting functionality. And since they are protocols, not software, Xerox has no control over what features will be available.
The only option is to set those specific devices themselves up in CWIS.

 

So CWIS > Properties > Login / Permissions / Accounting > Validation Policies/Print Job Exceptions > Edit

In this case everything Jeff prints from his iPod will print using his regular XSA account. The issue is it needs to go by hostname or IP address, which is not as good as MAC address for these types of setup.

 

It will most likely take a few tries before you get it right.

Could you mark the post as a solution? It helps later when people do a search for the issue by showing it is solved. It adds the checkmark to posts, when you see the checkmark, it means it is resolved.

Which in turn adds a link to the answer on the top post, so people can go direct to the answer (super helpful on old posts with pages of data that didn't work)

I assume the solution was my post in the other location that I copy&pasted below here already? (Your link appears to be broken)
