PaperCut – OKI Open Platform Embedded Manual
2015-02-17
This manual covers the OKI Open Platform embedded MFD setup. For general PaperCut
MF documentation, please see the PaperCut MF manual.
1
Overview
This manual provides an overview of the installation, configuration and operation of
PaperCut’s embedded software MFD (Multi-Function Device) solutions. Today’s MFDs are
smarter – they have touch screens and offer the ability to run applications directly on the
device. The goal of PaperCut Software’s embedded MFD solution is to leverage these
smart devices and to provide walk-up copier users with the same set of rich application
features provided in the print control area. These include:







Secure access to device functions
End user authentication including integration with single sign-on environments
Monitoring and control of photocopying (quotas, charging, allocation and logging)
Allocation of copying to accounts/departments/cost-centers/projects (shared
accounts)
Ability to locate shared accounts via select-from-list, keyword search or manual
code/pin entry
Release jobs from a hold/release queue (Secure & Find Me Printing)
Tracking of faxing and scanning
Highlights of the embedded solution include:
1.1 Consistency:
The embedded solutions are developed in-house by the PaperCut Software development
team. This ensures that the copier interface is consistent with the workstation print interface,
meaning users only have to learn one system.
1.2 Integration:
PaperCut is a single integrated solution where print, internet and copier control are all
managed in the one system. Users have a single account and administrators have the same
level of reporting and administration for all services. The embedded solution interacts with
the PaperCut server using a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and web services based
protocols.
1.3 Rate of development:
PaperCut is developed under a release-often policy where new features are made available
to users as soon as they are complete. Unlike hardware based solutions, new versions can
be delivered to users regularly as software updates.
1.4 Vendor Neutral:
PaperCut remains true to its vendor neutral stance. All embedded solutions are equal and
support all server OS’s including Windows, Linux and Mac.
1.5 Security:
A large percentage of PaperCut’s user base is in Education environments where security is
important. All embedded solutions are developed with security in mind. Where security
objectives can’t be satisfied, any known deficiencies are fully disclosed.

3.1 Test Preparation
To complete these tests it is recommended you use two test users so that each can be
configured differently. These users are:


‘testusersimple’ – is used to perform basic copier monitoring and control and to
perform print release tests.
‘testuseradvanced’ – is used to perform copier monitoring and control with the
account selection enabled (i.e. to charge copying to accounts/departments/costcenters/etc).
If you already have existing users for testing, then there is no need to create the users
above. Instead you can use your existing users for testing.
To setup these users in PaperCut:

3. Enable the “Hold/release queue” option.
4. Press OK/Apply to save the changes. All printing to this queue will now be held until
released by a user.
The photocopier device must also be enabled as a “Print Release Station”:
1. In PaperCut, select the “Devices” tab.
2. Select the OKI MFD’s device.
3. In the “External Device Settings”, change the “Device Function” and enable “Release
Station” option.
4. Select the print queue that was enabled for hold/release above. The OKI device will
allow jobs on the selected queues to be released.
5. Press “OK” to save. You will now notice in the External Device List that the device is
listed as having the function of a “Print Release Station”.
6. Login to a computer workstation as ‘testusersimple’.
7. Print a few jobs to the print queue that was configured above. The jobs will be held
in the hold/release queue.
8. Confirm that the jobs are held, by checking that the jobs are listed in the “Printers>Jobs Pending Release” page of the PaperCut administration interface.

Track & control scanning
The device will track scanning such as scan-to-email or scanto-file.
Track & control faxing
The device will track the sending of faxes.
Enable release station
The device will act as a print release station.
4.2 Authentication Methods
PaperCut supports a number of different ways to authenticate users who walk-up to the
devices to perform copying. The default authentication method is username and password
authentication.
Copyright © 2015 PaperCut Software International Pty. Ltd., All Rights Reserved.
23 of 44
PaperCut – OKI Open Platform Embedded Manual
2015-02-17
The available authentication methods can be modified in the ‘External Device Settings ->
Authentication methods’ section.
Authentication methods available for a device
Each authentication method is discussed in the following table.
Authentication
Method
Description
Username and
password
The user may use their domain/network username and password
to log into the device.
Identity number
The user can enter a predetermined number to log into the device.
The dialog on the panel will actually ask for a PIN but this is
actually referring to PaperCut’s identity number associated for that
user. This method is supported since PaperCut MF version 13.
Swipe card
The user may log in by swiping a card (e.g. magnetic strip, smart
card, RFID). See the PaperCut user manual for information about
user card numbers, including importing card numbers from an
external source.
Description of authentication methods
4.3 Shared Account Selection
Shared account selection options at the MFD mirror the options presented in the PaperCut
client print popup. The options available include:



Select from a list of shared accounts
Search for shared accounts by keyword
Select account using PIN/Code
The options available to each user, as well as account security access, will mirror the same
options available when the user prints. “Select from list” and/or “Select using PIN/Code” are
controlled at the user level via the User Details page under “Account Selection” when
showing the “standard account selection popup”. The Security tab on each account controls
account security/access.
Note: The search option will only appear if the account list is long. Short lists of only a few
accounts will not list a search option.
4.4 Customizing Text and Messages
PaperCut allows some text that appears in the device to be customized. The custom text
might include instructions or terminology that is more appropriate for the site. An example of
text that is customizable is the “welcome text” that displays on the EWB screen that shows
the user details.

24 of 44
PaperCut – OKI Open Platform Embedded Manual
2015-02-17
The text can be customized by editing the device configuration from the PaperCut
administration interface. For more details see the Advanced Configuration section.
4.5 Setup Scan-to-Network Folder
OKI devices can be configured to scan to network folders that can be predetermined for
each user. This functionality requires PaperCut MF version 12.4 or later. The process to
configure this functionality is:
1) Under the OKI TopAccess configuration, navigate to Administration -> Security.
a. Click the LDAP Server link that is set as the Primary for Role Based Access
Setting.
b. In the new window, set the “Attribute type of ‘User Name’” to
“sAMAccountName” instead of “uid”.
c. Repeat this process, if necessary, for the Primary LDAP Server for Card
Authentication Setting.
d. When the settings have been completed as indicated above, click Save.
2) Create a directory server connection under the OKI TopAccess configuration,
navigating to Administration -> Maintenance -> Directory Service. Click “New” and fill
out the LDAP settings with details that point to the AD/LDAP directory containing the
users’ network folder information.
3) Under the OKI TopAccess configuration, navigate to Administration -> Security and
locate the Home Directory Setting section.
a. Set the option to “Enable”.
b. Select the directory server object created in Step 1.
c. Select the option “Use specific server”, to choose the server in Step 2b as the
source of the Home Directory information.
d. When the settings have been filled out as indicated above, click Save.
4) Under the OKI TopAccess configuration, navigate to Administration -> Setup -> Save
As File, and locate Destination. Select “Use Network Folder Destination”, and set
the “Default File Path” to “Remote 1”.
5) On the same screen, locate the Remote 1 and Remote 2 Settings.
a. Fill out the settings under “Remote 1”. This is the network location that will be
overwritten by the user’s home directory attribute. The entered details will be

used as the default if the user’s home directory cannot be queried from the
directory server object used in Step 1 and 2.
b. Enter the login username/password for a user account that has read/write
permissions to all user home directories. These credentials will be used
to authenticate to the shared drive if the user authenticates with card
authentication. If the user logs into the device with standard credentials,
those will be used to authenticate against the network folder.
6) When the settings have been filled out as indicated above, click Save.
4.6 Adding application button links on the welcome page
PaperCut allows one or two buttons to be added to the intial PaperCut welcome page which
allows the Embedded Web Browser (EWB) to redirect to configured URLs. This can be
used, for instance, to go to a 3rd party scan connector application. For more details about the
configuration variables to set, please refer to the Advanced Configuration section and modify
the configuration variables prefixed by “ext-device.oki.app-button”.
5 Advanced Configuration
5.1 Config Editor
The common configuration options for a device in PaperCut are available on the device’s

ext-device.card-selfassociation.usesecondary-card-number
2015-02-17
Select whether user self-association should occupy the
primary or secondary card number. It overrides the global
setting unless the keyword "GLOBAL" is specified. This is
useful when there is a mix of different non-configurable
card readers that read different numbers from an ID card.
Set to "Y" to use the secondary card number, "N" to use
the primary card number. Default: "GLOBAL" to defer to
the global configuration option.
ext-device.oki.welcometext
The text displayed on the ‘welcome screen’ (the screen
displayed after pressing ‘Start’ from the ready screen).
This text can be used to provide specific information
about logging in to the device. Default: DEFAULT (uses
the default application text).
ext-device.oki.localeoverride
Used to override the language displayed on the device.
This is the 2 letter language code for the required
language. E.g. “ja” for Japanese.
ext-device.oki.releasecolumns
The columns to display in the print release screen. This
is a comma separated list of column names. The valid
column names are:







time – the time of the job
user – the username of the user that printed
document – the document name
pages – the number of pages in the job
cost – the cost of the job
client – the client machine name
datetime – the date & time of job
When set to DEFAULT the following are used:
Secure print release mode: time, document, pages, cost.
Release any mode: time, user, document, pages, cost
ext-device.oki.headerfont-color
The color used for the font in the header. The color
should be entered as a HTML RGB value in the format
#RRGGBB. NOTE: The OKI has a limited color palette
(the 256 web safe palette).
ext-device.oki.headerbackground-color
The color used for the background color header. The
color should be entered as a HTML RGB value in the
format #RRGGBB. NOTE: The OKI has a limited color
palette (the 256 web safe palette).
ext-device.oki.limitreference.duplex
Used at log in time, to assume whether the copying is
going to be duplex or not. This is used in order to decide
if we have enough quota to do a single copy.
ext-device.oki.limitreference.paper-size
Used at log in time, to assume what page size the
copying is going to use. This is used in order to decide if
we have enough quota to do a single copy. By default for

27 of 44
PaperCut – OKI Open Platform Embedded Manual
2015-02-17
the United States this size is Letter and elsewhere it is
A4.
ext-device.oki.v2.limitreference.quota.duplex
Whether we consider the page to be duplex for the page
quota. By default we consider the page to be duplex so
we don’t overcharge the user.
ext-device.oki.v2.limitreference.quota.largepaper-size
The reference paper size that we consider to be a large
paper size for the zero stop page costs. By default for the
United States this size is Ledger and elsewhere it is A3.
ext-device.oki.v2.limitreference.quota.smallpaper-size
The reference paper size that we consider to be a small
paper size for the zero stop page costs. By default for the
United States this size is Letter and elsewhere it is A4.
ext-device.oki.v2.loghighest-id
The highest log id that we have processed so far. Used to
determine what log entries to look at next from the copier.
ext-device.oki.v2.portnum
The port number used for ODCA (Off Device
Customization Architecture) as set up in Top Access, as
discussed in section 2.2.4.8.
ext-device.oki.v2.serialnumber
The serial number of the device that we last queried from
the device. This is used so that we know if the device
changes across restarts of the PaperCut application
server.
ext-device.oki.v2.zeroquota-logout
When set to “Y” always reset the user’s quota on the MFP
is set to zero at logout.
Default: “N”
When a user logs into the MFP, there is a slight delay
until the quota/balance is set on the MFP. Until it is set
the user’s quota from their previous MFP login is used. If
their previous quota/balance was zero, they may see a
“quota exceeded” message briefly before the quota is set.
Setting this to “N” (the default) will not zero the quota on
user logout. This means that if the user can login and
access the copier before the quota is set that may be able
to use the device with their old quota (that may be out of
date).
Setting this to “Y” will zero the user’s quota on each
logout. This provides more strict enforcement, but with
the possible downside that users can login and access
the copier before the quota is set and they will see the
“Quota exceeded” message.
ext-device.oki.v2.setroles
When set to “N” it will prevent PaperCut from
automatically setting the data for the RBAC (Roles Based
Access Controls) allowing the admin to manually set the
data.
Default: “Y” (will set the RBAC data every 12 hours to
ensure it is still correct)

PaperCut – OKI Open Platform Embedded Manual
ext-device.oki.v2.secureodca
2015-02-17
When set to “Y”, PaperCut will use SSL for the SOAP
communications with ODCA. This will ensure the setting
of quotas and the OKI log information will be encrypted.
Default: “N” (ODCA messages will not be encrypted)
ext-device.oki.hidecancel-job-button
When set to “Y” it will ensure that the Cancel buttons are
never displayed on the Print Release web page.
Default: N (the cancel buttons will be shown for release
jobs)
ext-device.oki.direct-torelease-page
When set to “Y”, upon login the user will go direct to the
print release page (assuming the device is configured for
print release) and skip the welcome screen.
Default: N (it will go to the welcome page on login)
ext-device.oki.appbuttons.enabled
When set to “Y” it will enable the application buttons on
the welcome screen. The label(s) and URL(s) need to
then be defined. Either 1 or 2 buttons can be set.
Default: N (application buttons will not be shown by
default)
ext-device.oki.appbuttons.heading
The text displayed for the heading at the bottom of the
welcome screen to introduce the application buttons.
Default: DEFAULT (use the default heading text)
ext-device.oki.appbutton1.label
OPTIONAL: The application label for the 1st button (if
needed).
Default: NONE (the button will not be displayed if this is
set to “NONE”)
ext-device.oki.appbutton1.url
OPTIONAL: The application URL for the 1st button (if
needed).
Default: NONE (need to change to a valid URL if you
want to use this button)
ext-device.oki.appbutton2.label
OPTIONAL: The application label for the 2nd button (if
needed).
Default: NONE (the button will not be displayed if this is
set to “NONE”)
ext-device.oki.appbutton2.url
OPTIONAL: The application URL for the 2nd button (if
needed).
Default: NONE (need to change to a valid URL if you
want to use this button)
Note: The limit reference variables for version 2 quotas are used in a different way than the
standard limit references such as ext-device.oki.limit-reference.duplex. The standard ones
are used at log in time to decide if the user will have permission to do copies, assuming they
Copyright © 2015 PaperCut Software International Pty. Ltd., All Rights Reserved.
30 of 44
PaperCut – OKI Open Platform Embedded Manual
2015-02-17
are going to try to do at least one page of a certain page size and whether it will be duplex or
not. The version 2 quota reference variables are used to set the page costs for quotas on the
copier. For example, if PaperCut is told to charge $0.50 for A3 pages, and extdevice.oki.v2.limit-reference.quota.large-paper-size is set to A3, then this will tell the copier
that large-pages cost $0.50.
5.2 Setting an explicit PaperCut Server Network Address
The copier connects to the PaperCut server to send user and job event notifications. The
device makes inbound network connections to the PaperCut server using a network address
of the PaperCut server. By default PaperCut will use the server’s IP address (if the server
has multiple IPs (i.e. multi-homed) then PaperCut will select one of them), but on some
networks this address may not be publicly accessible from other parts of the network.
If the PaperCut server has a “public” IP address or DNS name then this can be used instead,
which allows the copiers to use the “public” network address instead of the IP address that
PaperCut detects. To do this:






Login to PaperCut
Go to the "Options" tab.
Select "Config Editor (Advanced)", from the action links on the left.
Find the "system.network-address" setting.
Enter the public network address for the PaperCut server.
Press the "Update" button next to the setting and confirm the setting is updated.
When connecting devices to a PaperCut site server, you can configure the sites’ “Network
address used by devices”:





Login to PaperCut
Go to the “Sites” tab.
Select the site to edit.
Change the “Network address used by devices”.
Save the site details.
To have either of these changes take effect immediately, restart the PaperCut Application
Server service (i.e. on Windows use: Control Panel->Admin Tools->Services).
5.3 Customizing the Header Logos and Colors
The embedded application has a header at the top of all screens. This header defaults to
the PaperCut logo and green color. The header can be customized to match your
organization’s color scheme and logos.
5.3.1 Customized Logos
The embedded application header has a single header logo (as shown below). This logo
can be replaced with your organization’s logo.
Copyright © 2015 PaperCut Software International Pty. Ltd., All Rights Reserved.
31 of 44
PaperCut – OKI Open Platform Embedded Manual
2015-02-17
This shows one logo outlined in red. The images must be saved in the PNG format. The
PaperCut logo has the size of 200 pixels wide by 42 pixels high. It is important that your
logo has a height of 42 pixels, but the width can vary.
This custom logo must be stored on the PaperCut server in the location:
[app-path]\server\custom\web\device\oki\header-logo.png
5.4 Custom Header Color
The header colors are defined in the Advanced Config settings as described in Section 5.1.
See the settings for “ext-device.oki.header-font-color” and “ext-device.oki.headerbackground-color”.
NOTE: The OKI devices have a limited color palette (the 256 color web-safe palette).
5.5 Configuring Swipe Card Readers
Swipe cards contain numbers which are used to identify users according to the card number
configured in the User Details screen under “Card/Identity” number. Some readers report
information in addition to the number encoded on the card, such as checksums. PaperCut
can treat these cases in two ways:


A typical case is the checksum being reported after the card number, separated by
an equals sign, such as in 5235092385=8. PaperCut can handle this case by
default; it will extract the number before the equal sign as the card number:
5235092385.
For some cases, a “regular expression” may be required that will filter the card
number from the complete string of characters reported by the card reader.
Documentation on regular expressions can be found on the Internet, e.g. at
www.regular-expressions.info.
o The regular expression must be fashioned so that the card number is
returned as the first match group.
o Usually one regular expression will be used for all the devices managed by
PaperCut; this must be entered in the “Config editor” in the PaperCut Admin
Console. Open the Admin Console and select the Options tab, then select
“Config Editor (Advanced)” from the left menu. The key is called “extdevice.card-no-regex”.
o The global setting however can be overridden on a per-device basis: The key
“ext-device.card-no-regex” can also be found on the “Advanced Config” tab in
the device details screen. This setting will override the global setting unless
the keyword “GLOBAL” is specified.
o PaperCut developers will gladly assist in producing a regular expression
when supplied with a few sample outputs from your card reader. Please
contact PaperCut support.
o If you would like to write your own regular expressions, here are some
examples:
 Use the first 10 characters (any character): (.{10})
 Use the first 19 digits: (\d{19})

6 Known Limitations and Security
6.1 Usability and User Interface Limitations
After the user is authenticated they are either taken straight to the “copier” screen or the
Embedded Web Browser (EWB) screen (if you enabled the 08 code). However, at any stage
the user is free to go to the copier screen by hitting the “copier” button and PaperCut has no
way of preventing this other than removing copier permissions. If the user wants to go back
to the PaperCut screen in the Embedded Web Browser, they must press the “Menu” hard
key and then the “EXTENSION” button. This is not an ideal user experience, and may
require some user training to overcome.
An example of when this is a problem is if the user should not have permission to charge
copying to their personal user account, but instead should select an account. As PaperCut
cannot force this account selection, it defaults to charging to the personal account. As a
possible work-around you may configure a “Default Shared Account” to preselect a particular
shared account at login.
The Open Platform integration allows PaperCut to lock the copier when the user has not
selected an account. This is a significant improvement over earlier integration, however, this
is not as preferable as being able to force account selection at login. OKI are aware of this
issue and aim to improve their SDK for future devices.
6.2 Limited Authentication Options
The OKI Open Platform does not allow for customizing the authentication process. For this
reason, PaperCut has the following limitations with login/authentication:


No option for PIN entry when performing identity number authentication (the input for
the identity number is actually done using OKI’s PIN input).
Identity number authentication was introduced in PaperCut MF version 13.
6.3 Zero stop when Copying
In an ideal implementation, PaperCut would be able to control exactly how many pages a
user can copy and always prevent the user from overdrawing their account. OKI’s Open
Platform offers the ability to limit page counts but has the following limitations:
1. The copier does not seem to stop immediately when limits are reached. There is a
small delay meaning that users can overrun their account below zero by about 2
pages.
2. Ideally PaperCut would be informed of the user selection prior to copying and be able
to accept/reject the job at this point. Current OKI API implementations prevent this
level of pre-approval.
3. Open Platform supports the page costs of color, grayscale, small page size and large
page size. It does not support costs or discounts for duplex and individual pages
sizes other than the 2 sizes of small and large. By default, the small paper size is set
to ext-device.oki.v2.limit-reference.quota.small-paper-size which is US letter in the
United States and A4 everywhere else. The large paper size is set to extdevice.oki.v2.limit-reference.quota.large-paper-size which is Ledger in the United
States and A3 everywhere else.
When the quota limit is exceeded a popup message on the device will alert the user to
having run out of quota.

6.4 Zero stop when Scanning and Faxing
OKI devices currently do not stop scan or fax jobs mid-way when users run out of credit.
Instead, users can complete the scan or fax job and possibly incur an overdraft in their
accounts. Users are then prevented from starting further jobs of any kind upon next log in.
6.5 Bypassing the System
It is important that the administrators take care to prevent users from bypassing the system
and directly accessing the copier. Likewise it’s also important that administrators know how
to bypass/disable the system if direct copier access is required – say to change advanced
system settings. Administrators should take the following precautions:


The copier’s built in admin password should be changed and always kept secure.
The power and network cable should be securely connected. The system is
designed to be robust and record copier usage if the power is lost during copying, but
it is possible to start copying before the embedded application starts after restarting
the copier.
7 Uninstalling PaperCut from the MFD
In order to stop the OKI MFD from trying to authenticate with PaperCut and allow free
copying on the device, the simplest option is to disable the “User Authentication Setting.” If
all you do is this step, then it is very simple to re-enable the MFP for PaperCut again if you
change your mind.

To disable the PaperCut authentication follow these steps:
1. Log in to the device’s web administration (TopAccess) with a web browser.
2. In TopAccess, select “Administration” -> “Security”.
3. Under the “User Authentication Setting” heading change “User Authentication” to
“Disable”.
7.1 Further optional uninstallation steps
Theoretically, you could reverse all the steps that you followed during the setup process.
You could revert the 08 codes back to what they were and change all the Top Access menu
options back to what they were. However, disabling the authentication would be the prime
thing that is required. Some other steps to be more complete could include:




Removing the EWB URL so that the menu option doesn’t try to contact the PaperCut
application server
Disabling the ODCA option
Disabling the Print Data Converter
Unselecting the Job Quota Setting

8 FAQ & Troubleshooting
My OKI device is not logging any copy/fax/scan jobs? What’s wrong?
There are a number of possible problems. Check the following:




In the PaperCut admin site, go to the “Devices” tab and select the device:
o Verify that the “Device hostname / IP” is correct.
o Verify that the appropriate “Device Functions” are enabled. i.e. To track faxes
ensure “Track & control faxing” is enabled.
o Check the Device Status on this page (or in Status column of Device List) to
ensure no errors are occurring.
o Check that the Device’s administrator username and password are correct.
Verify that the 08 service mode settings have been changed.
Verify that ODCA has been enabled and the default port of 49629 was used.
Verify the correct version of the firmware is running.
A user has overrun their quota during a copy job. Why didn’t it stop them earlier?
There are a number of possible reasons for this:


A copy job tends to overrun its quota by at least 2 pages probably because there are
at least 2 pages in the device which have not yet come out of the copier. This is a
restriction of the device.
You have used more advanced costs than just color, grayscale, small paper size or
large paper size which are all that Open Platform provides direct support for. For
example, you have set a duplex discount and by default we will favor the user and
assume all pages are duplex (according to ext-device.oki.v2.limitreference.quota.duplex).
You see the dialog about “Empty Quota” on the copier before you have actually run
out of quota in PaperCut.
Check the following:

Make sure that the Print Data Converter file is installed as mentioned in section
2.2.4.7. If this is not done, then print jobs (from a print server) by the user can
potentially reduce the quota for that user on the copier.
The card reader isn’t working? What’s wrong?
Firstly ensure that you are using a compatible card reader (see Appendix A on page 38).
If you are using a compatible card reader the most likely cause is a configuration issue:

Make sure the card reader is connected while the device is booting up. Try rebooting
the device.

Check the 08 codes used to enable the card reader (e.g. 3500)

Check that correct LDAP server is selected in the “card reader” setting in the LDAP
authentication settings in TopAccess.
What is the IP address of my PaperCut Server?
Use operating system command-line tools such as ipconfig or ifconfig to determine this.
I have thousands of accounts representing my clients. Will the system handle this?
Yes. We have designed the system to handle thousands of Shared Accounts. Users with
many accounts will also be presented with some “power options” to help them find accounts
including keywords based search.
Login on my OKI device is very slow
This can be caused by incorrect network settings on the copier such as incorrect DNS
servers, subnet masks and similar. We recommend checking all network settings.
9 Appendix A: Supported Authentication Card Readers

2. Generic Keyboard mode with 08 service mode 3500 set to: 60001.
9.2 Magtek Dynamag
OKI has magnetic card reader support for the Magtek Dynamag card reader. This is set
using the 08 code of 3500 with a mode setting of 70001. As well as setting the type of reader
using the 3500 code, one also needs to set the 3501 code to specify which track data to use
as specified in the table below.
Track data
08 service mode setting 3501
Use track 1 data
1
Use track 2 data
2
Use track 3 data

When entering the track number (for example, track 2 has been used for the banking
industry), you will be shown boxes with the letters A to F. Please ignore this and just enter
one of the digits 1 to 3 on the key pad. Then press OK. You will be asked to repeat this for
confirmation and so just enter the same digit again and press OK.
