Printer payload authenticates to Follow-You print using "Casper_Read"

New Contributor

Hi everyone,

We have a follow-you printing setup at my business using the Papercut client. The printer payload I created which can be installed via self-service works perfectly except for how it authenticates to the printer. For some reason it sends credentials for "Casper_Read" rather than prompting the user to input their own details. Any ideas here?

Kind regards,

if you can't use kerberos for any reason, add this to your script or in the policy to execute after deployment in the Files and Process section:

/usr/sbin/lpadmin -p <printer_queue_name> -o auth-info-required=username,password

I haven't had any experience using a config profile method, so not sure where it's pulling that username from.
