Setting Up the Client Computers

To restrict printing from computers with the Access Management System, it is necessary to install the AMS Printer Driver Add-in to the printer drivers installed in the computers, and set the user information.
In this example, three devices are used. Since all three are the same model, they use the same printer driver.
Even if multiple types of printer drivers exist on a single computer, the AMS Printer Driver Add-in can be installed to each printer driver with a single operation.
However, when the AMS Printer Driver Add-in is installed in a printer driver, the [AMS] page is added to all of the printer icons associated with that printer driver. Therefore, when a single [AMS] page is set, those settings are applied to all the AMS Printer Driver Add-ins used on computers that are logged on, and the installation of the AMS Printer Driver Add-in and setting of user information can be completed with a single operation.
IMPORTANT
Confirm that the printer driver supports AMS before installing the AMS Printer Driver Add-in. The add-in will not be installed correctly unless the printer driver supports it. For more information, see "Client Computer (AMS Printer Driver Add-in)."
When using the AMS Printer Driver Add-in in a shared printer environment, install the AMS Printer Driver Add-in to the printer drivers on the print server. (Install the AMS Printer Driver Add-in to the printer driver on the print server. After installing the AMS Printer Driver Add-in to a printer driver on the print server, it may take some time until the [AMS] page is displayed in the printer properties dialog box on a client computer. If the [AMS] page is still not displayed, add the printer icon to the client computer.)
If the date/time settings of all equipment that comprises the system (devices, client computers, server computers, etc.) do not match, printing may take longer, or you may be unable to print. For information on setting the date/time settings of the device, see the instruction manuals for the device.
It may not be necessary to install the AMS Printer Driver Add-in, depending on your environment. For more information, see "Access Management System Configurations."
