Attaching authentication information
Printing when authentication is set
When printing a document in an environment where user authentication or account track is employed, you
need to send the authentication information (user name and password) to this machine to execute printing.
This requirement limits the users who can use this machine, preventing unauthorized use by a third party.
When this machine receives a print job from a user who is not permitted to print, or a print job that does not
contain authentication information, this machine automatically discards the job.
A print job that does not contain authentication information is a print job that is sent without correctly
configuring the User Authentication/Account Track setting using the printer driver even though the User
Authentication/Account Track setting is configured on this machine.
If [Print] in [Job Retention:] is selected to execute a print job while the [User Authentication]/[Account
Track] check box is cleared in the [Security] window of the printer driver, the print job is considered as
a print job that does not contain authentication information.
If [ID & Print] is set to [Enable] on [Security] - [ID & Print Settings] of Web Connection, an ordinary print
job is handled as an ID & Print job (default: [Disable]). For details on the ID & Print function, refer to
When printing a highly confidential document in an environment where user authentication or account track
is employed, using the ID & Print function enables high security printing. For details, refer to page 3-26.
