  • Printers’ management
    1. Gespage Direct Agent
      • The management of printers has been fully redesigned to distinguish printers from printer queues:
        • Multiple printer queues installed on different servers or computers and referencing the same MFP are now aggregated to a single printer device.
        • A single printer and eTerminal configuration can therefore be shared between multiple printers’ queues.
        • The reports are referencing the printers, that can be aggregated from different printer queues.
      • This allows various new configurations:
        • Install print agents on user computers to get rid of print servers.
        • Share a common eTerminal between separate networks (ex: education and administration networks)
        • The standard management of printers through a print server remains of course possible.
      • The aggregation is done automatically based on printer queue’s IP addresses: 
        • From several printer queues referencing the same printer, the aggregation printer is called the ‘Priority printer’.
        • By default, the ‘priority printer’ is the first queue referencing a printer that is registered on Gespage.
        • It is possible to manually modify the ‘Priority printer’ and to rename it.
