Updating the Key Pair for Access Control

Periodically update the key pair as necessary, for improved security. This section describes the procedure for updating the key pair for access control.
If you want to print soon after updating the key pair, first click [Get Restriction Information] on the [AMS] page of the Printer Properties dialog box to retrieve print restriction information. An error will occur if the AMS Printer Driver Add-in tries to print using print restriction information retrieved before updating the key pair. Note that documents that are prohibited from being printed more than once can no longer be printed. (Print restriction information is automatically retrieved approximately 30 minutes after updating the key pair, enabling normal printing.)
