Registering Mobile Session Print server on TPNS

To be able to activate users and devices for Mobile Session Print you need to have previously registered the Mobile Session Print server on the ThinPrint Push Notifica­tion Service (TPNS). This is also required after an update installation of Mobile Session Print.

Registering Mobile Session Print server on the TPNS

Note! If Mobile Session Print and License Server are to run on the same server that’s running Windows 2008 R2 and the Window name differ from the exter­nal URL, you must add the following two values to the Windows Registry manually3:

1. hkey_local_machine\system\CurrentControlSet\Services\Lanman­Server\Parameters\DisableStrictNameChecking (REG_DWORD) = 1
2. hkey_local_machine\system\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\MSV1_0\Back­ConnectionHostNames (MultiString) = FQDN of the external URL

  • Select Global Settings.

  • Select Mobile Print→ Register Server.

  • Enter the Mobile Session Print server address and an administrator’s e-mail address – preferably that of the user account used for installation. This will register both the Mobile Session Print server and the e-mail domain on the TPNS.

  • Go to the mailbox of the given user account when the message Confirm acti­vation link in e-mail appears and click the Verify but­ton in the registration mail to confirm this e-mail. Then a confirma­tion page will appear in the web browser.

Mailbox: clicking the Verify button in the registration mail

Web browser: confirmation of the successful registration

  • Go back to the Management Console and complete the registration process by clicking on Complete Registration (see above).
    As confirmation you will receive a corresponding message.

In the Management Console, the registration information and the print job storage will be displayed. The print job storage destination folder can be changed with Edit Settings.

Enabling users for Mobile Session Print

  • To enable users, select Users or Control Panel→ Users.

  • To add users – if they’re not already enabled for ThinPrint –, click on the plus sign.
    After the import, the users will be enabled for ThinPrint but not yet for Mobile Session Print. To enable it, click on Edit.

  • Enable the user for Mobile Session Print and click OK.

  • Lastly select Force update to transmit the (changed) user information to the TPNS. This is also required after an update installation of Mobile Session Print.
