OP Connector


If more than one Print Server is available on your network and some computers need to be able to print to more than one Print Server, you will need to install the OP Connnector software on your next Print Servers. OP can then be configured to select different Print Servers on your network to control specific print jobs.

Windows Setup

Install OP Connector and configure it for a specific print server:
1. Download and run the latest OP Connector from http://www/fitosoft.com/downloads/
2. Follow the installation instructions that appear on the screen
3. The OP Connector will be installed on your computer

Select OP Server from the list:

Unix Setup

Installation:

The OP Connector requires Tea4CUPS and pkpgcounter.

1. Download and install Tea4CUPS and pkpgcounter from http://www.pykota.com/

2. Download OP Connector from: http://www.fitosoft.com/downloads and extract it:
$ tar -zxf objprint.tar.gz

3. Copy 'objprint.py' file into CUPS' configuration directory:
$ cp objprint.py /etc/cups/
If you use CUPS v1.2 or higher you must do the following as well :
$ chmod 700 /etc/cups/objprint.py

4. Open /etc/cups/tea4cups.conf file for editing into CUPS' configuration
directory. Search and replace the line
#prehook_accounting : echo $TEAPRINTERNAME $TEAJOBID $TEAUSERNAME $TEABILLING `pkpgcounter $TEADATAFILE` >>/var/log/printaccounting.log
with
prehook_accounting : python /etc/cups/objprint.py --JobId=$TEAJOBID --PrinterName=$TEAPRINTERNAME --MachineName=$TEACLIENTHOST --UserName=$TEAUSERNAME --TotalPages=`/usr/local/bin/pkpgcounter $TEADATAFILE` --Size=$TEAJOBSIZE --Copies=$TEACOPIES --Document=$TEATITLE $TEAOPTIONS

5. You need to open port 1562 (UDP and TCP). This port must be accessible from the Internet on the machine running the OP Connector.

6. Setup the OP Connector settings. Launch setup.py, entering the right parameter values:
sudo python setup.py

Troubleshooting:

1 - Set "trace = 1" in the [global] section of /etc/cups/objprint.conf
2 - Print something on a print queue managed by Tea4CUPS.
3 - Look at /etc/cups/objprint_trace.txt file for diagnostic and error messages.

Tea4CUPS requires a version of Python 2.3 and later.
