Precautions When Operating with Local Device Authentication

This section describes precautions to take when operating the Access Management System with local device authentication.

Using the Access Management System in Conjunction with the Department ID Management Function

When using the Department ID Management function in conjunction with the Access Management System, start the Department ID Management function and register the Department IDs after the Access Management System setup (the above operations) is complete. For information on the Department ID Management function, see the instruction manuals of the device.
When using the Department ID Management function in conjunction with the Access Management System, the [Department ID] and [System PIN] registered in the user information must match the [Department ID] and [System PIN] registered in Department ID Management. If the information in Department ID Management changes due to device information delivery settings, etc., change the user information in accordance.

Restricting Printing from Computers

To restrict printing from computers, it is necessary to add the AMS Printer Driver Add-in to the printer drivers installed in the computers, after the above operations are complete. For more information, see "Setting Up the Client Computers."
