Printer Management with FOG



  • Hello,
    First some informations about my System:

    root@FOG:~# cat /proc/version
    Linux version 4.9.0-8-amd64 (debian-kernel@lists.debian.org) (gcc version .3.0 20170516 (Debian 6.3.0-18+deb9u1) ) #1 SMP Debian 4.9.110-3+deb9u4 (2018-08-21)

    root@FOG:~# cat /etc/issue
    Debian GNU/Linux 9 \n \l

    Fog Version: 1.5.4.8
    bzImage Version: 4.15.2
    bzImage32 Version: 4.15.2

    I want to run four TCP IP Printer in my local Network on Port 9100. The addresses are
    192.168.0.212:9100 HP Laser Jet 712
    192.168.0.213:9100 HP Laser Jet 712
    192.168.0.214:9100 HP510 Plotter
    192.168.0.215:9100 HP510 Plotter
    I’ve two rooms where I want to assign one Laser Jet and one plotter.
    The Print Management should be done by Fog.

    My problems:
    -) Printers:
    In both cases (Plotter and Laser Jet) the Network connection is named on the local PC as 9100; The port name.
    If I do the installation by hand Windows names it with the IP address.

    As the two connections have the same name “9100” I think the second one replaces the first one … So I can only assign one Printer.

    -) Changing the printer setup on FOG changes sometimes nothing. (e.g. the name of the inf file - the printer …) My solution was to deploy the computer again …

    -) Group management with Printers: If I update a group with the option “only Assigned Printers” the clients are not updated. The are still in the mode “No Printer Management”

    -) How to install a local pdf Printer, when I use the option: “Only Assigned Printers”
