iOS 9 – Unable to Print via Papercut

19 Oct

What has changed in IOS9?

iOS9 shifts the way iOS devices have traditionally talked on a network by using IPv6 communication:
→Lots of hexadecimal numbers with colons in-between fe80::xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:b71d
if available before it uses IPv4 communication:
→The pattern of 4 of decimal numbers we have come to know 10.xxx.xxx.xxx

This includes IPv6 Link Local addresses if it possibly can, provided the infrastructure can support them.

So how does this affect PaperCut?

PaperCut uses one of the few constant things known about an iOS device, it’s IP address, to link jobs to users.
On an iOS 9 device, printed jobs present from the IPv6 address. However when logging on to the PaperCut app, the address presented is an IPv4 one, and we do not make the connection.
In many existing set-ups, this may not be a problem, as IPv6 may not be supported or the device may be iOS 8 or older, so we will only ever see an IPv4 address.
However if after upgrading to iOS9 you find that users report their jobs not showing up in the print queues to be released, you may find that iOS9 has found a way to use IPv6 on the network.

How do I get my devices printing again?

In most networks, we have found that turning off IPv6 will work around the issue, and restore the ability to print.
This is a relatively simple process that you only have to do on the interface the Mac uses to talk to the iOS devices. In the majority installations this is the Ethernet adapter on the Mac mini.

To disable IPv6on the Ethernet port:

There is no GUI option to disable IPv6, it must be done from a terminal session.
1. Launch Terminal
2. Type the following command:

networksetup -setv6off Ethernet

or for WiFi? is you use it

networksetup -setv6off wi-fi

3. Go to the system settings and verify the command has worked, you should be able to see an extra menu item called “off” with a tick against it.

“I still can not print” or “I need IPv6 on for my network”

If you can not disable IPv6 for any reason, support may have alternative workarounds that should allow iOS9 devices to print in your environment, please contact us for more information.

Deleted Photos taking up space iOS

8 Sep
  1. Go to Settings
  2. Date & Time
  3. Untoggle “Set Automatically”
  4. Manually change the date back. For example, if today is March 15, 2015, choose August 1, 2014. (You can change it back once we’re done)
  5. Close out of that
  6. Open “Photos”
  7. Select “Albums”
  8. If, like me, you had already cleared out everything from the Camera Roll and “Recently Deleted” folder, you’ll smile to see that your “Recently Deleted” folder now has thousands of images back. Those are your phantom photos
  9. Open it, “Select” and start deleting
  10. Now, go back into Settings – General – Usage – Storage – Manage Storage – and you’ll notice your Photo & Camera isempty if you deleted everything

Storage being used but no photos

15 Apr

I’ve been searching for an answer to this very problem for a solid day. Here is what I did that worked for me. No reset. No need to upgrade to more Cloud storage or anything else. I had already deleted out every picture from my phone, including “Messages” and the “recently deleted” album, etc. There really are phantom pictures in there, but the only way to see them and delete them is to:

 

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Date & Time
  3. Untoggle “Set Automatically”
  4. Manually change the date back. For example, if today is March 15, 2015, choose August 1, 2014. (You can change it back once we’re done)
  5. Close out of that
  6. Open “Photos”
  7. Select “Albums”
  8. If, like me, you had already cleared out everything from the Camera Roll and “Recently Deleted” folder, you’ll smile to see that your “Recently Deleted” folder now has thousands of images back. Those are your phantom photos
  9. Open it, “Select” and start deleting
  10. Now, go back into Settings – General – Usage – Storage – Manage Storage – and you’ll notice your Photo & Camera is empty if you deleted everything

 

Papercut on a Mac Server – OSX and iOS Printing

16 Feb

Configuring a Macintosh Secondary Print Server

This section describes the process of setting up a secondary Mac print server. The primary Application Server may either be a Windows, Mac or a Linux basis system. PaperCut NG has full support for “mixed” or heterogeneous printing environments.

Step 1 – Ensure primary server is set up correctly

Before installing a secondary server you should take some time to ensure the primary server (central application server) is set up and running correctly. If it is not running fine now adding an extra server will only “add an extra variable to the equation” and complicate troubleshooting. Take some time now to verify that the primary server is functioning correctly. For example, verify that:

  • Printers on this server are being tracked.
  • Users are allowed top login to user pages from their workstations.
  • Administrators can access the system.

Step 2 – Ensure firewall software is set to allow access to port 9191

Secondary server needs to communicate (initiate a TCP connection) on port 9191. Administrators should ensure that any firewall software on the primary Application Server is not set to block any incoming local network traffic on this port.

Step 3 – Create the host user account

PaperCut NG runs under a non-privileged user account called “papercut”. This invisible system account is created automatically upon first install. Advanced system administrators may however have a preference to create this account manually. If you fall into this category, create the papercut account now prior to installation.

Step 4 – Install the print provider

Install the print provider software onto the secondary server. Download the latest Mac DMG disk image and execute the contained installer called PaperCut NG Secondary Server Installation.pkg.

Step 5 – Configuration

The Print Provider on the secondary server needs to know where the primary server is installed. The installer may open the appropriate configuration file after the install completes.

  1. Open a text editor such as TextEdit.
  2. Open the file:

    [app-path]/providers/print/ mac/print-provider.conf

  3. Locate the line starting with ApplicationServer= and change localhost to the name or IP address of the primary server.
  4. Save the file and exit the text editor.

Double-click on the command script /Applications/PaperCut NG/Control Printer Monitoring.command, and enable monitoring on the appropriate printers.

Step 6 – Test

The secondary server should now be configured. Log into the system as “admin” and verify that the printers are now listed under the Printers section. Perform a multi-page test print on each printer and verify that print jobs are tracked correctly.
