ThinPrint users

Using the Show Users option, you obtain an overview of all available user accounts on the license server. You can also partly edit them directly in the TPDU.

Note! To display the users from the license server, you need to be using a domain account that allows you to configure the license server. Generally, this is not the domain administrator, but a normal domain user who is member of the local ThinPrint Configuration Admins group on the license server.
