Preparing a master printer for ZeroConfig installation

Define an HP Future Smart printer as master printer in the Web Admin. The master printer model should match the printer which will be installed by ZeroConfig.

E.g. the master printer for an HP Color LaserJet MFP M553 should be an HP LaserJet M553.

  1. In the printer settings of the master printer, enable the Celiveo Pull Print checkbox and select the latest .mh file.
