ThinPrint Licensing & License Server

Access user configuration

26 views 0

To license users for ThinPrint, access ThinPrint Management Console (Illus. 714) from any HTML5 browser using the following address:

https://AddressLicenseserver:4004/fw

This requires that Port 4004 on the license server is open in the outbound direction.

Alternatively select THINPRINT LICENSE AND USER CONFIGURATION in the START menu (top arrow in Illus. below).

Role-based access

Access to ThinPrint Management Console can be performed in two roles; the admin role can configure, the user role is read-only. For this purpose, two user groups were created in AD-LDS during the installation of the license server (see following Illus.):

  • ThinPrint Configuration Admins
    configuration; assigning licenses
  • ThinPrint Configuration Users
    read-only

To these groups, individual user accounts can be added. The account used for the installation is already entered in the admin group (in this example: LICSERVICE, see next Illustration). Where applicable, add users to one of these groups.

Note! Restart the IIS after adding an account to the ThinPrint Configuration Admins group (to ensure that users can be imported from the AD using this account).

 two new user groups can access the ThinPrint Configuration Console: ThinPrint Configuration Admins and ThinPrint Configuration Users

Two new user groups can access the ThinPrint Configuration Console: ThinPrint Configuration Admins and ThinPrint Configuration Users

Excluding users

Individual users can be added to the local ThinPrint Excluded Users group (see previous Illus.) to exclude them from being automatically assigned ThinPrint licenses – in automatic user activation mode (see below).

Note! In specific Active Directory structures – e. g. with one-way trusts or read-only domain controllers – maybe the license server can’t analyze the local group ThinPrint Excluded Users successfully. In this case the users entered there can’t be excluded from automatic license assigning. Please verify that the group ThinPrint Excluded Users works properly in your environment. Otherwise it would be best to delete this group.
