Enable Card Authentication for Printers

You enable proximity card authentication by creating an Access Control Rule and assigning the rule to a printer. You however cannot assign an Access Control Rule directly to a printer. Instead, you create an Access & Rules Profile for a printer and add the Access Control Rule to the Access & Rules Profile.

  1. Select the printer to add the Access and Rules Profile to.
  2. Click . The Access & Rules dialog is displayed.

  4. At [Profile Name], specify a unique name for the Access & Rules Profile.

2. Add a New Access Control Rule to the Access and Rules Profile

  1. Click , located in the same row as the [Access Control Rules] drop-down. The Access & Rules Profile displays.

  1. Click [Add], located below [Identification Method]. The Rule Definition displays.

4. Build the Authentication Profile to Validate the Card Number

  1. Click , located next to the [Source] drop-down. The Authentication Profile displays.

  6. Click [Save]. You are returned to the Authentication Source Profile.

Dual Service Account System

To avoid any connection error after refreshing/changing the login/password on service accounts used by Celiveo, the administrator can define a secondary set of credentials so that if the default (primary) set is declined by the solution, then the secondary set takes over and prevents the access from being denied.

5. Specify How to Process Card Number

  2. Click next to the [ID Mask].
  3. From the [Mask Type] drop-down, select the mask that extracts the card number.
