Creating a Celiveo Shared Virtual Printer (server based pull printing) follows a different procedure for macOS with respect to Windows OS.

Before you begin…

The shared print queue must be created in the Windows Print Server to support macOS printing. For this setting, the print queue on the server must have the pre-processing filter configured.

  1. On the Print Server, enable LPD Service and LPR Port Monitor. (Enabling these features allows printing to shared printers on this server).
  2. To do this:
    1. Go to Add Roles and Features > Server Roles
    2. Locate and select the Print and Document Services checkbox. Click to display Role Services sub menu.
    3. Select LPD Service checkbox.
    4. Click Next. Select LPR Port Monitor under Features.
  3. Create a Celiveo Shared Virtual Printer (CSVP) on the Print Server. Refer to the article here on how to deploy and create CSVP on Print Server.
  4. Go to Printer Properties option of the CSVP.
  5. Under Celiveo Pull Printing tab, set the Preprocessing filter depending on the Username format sent by the host machine.
