2015-02-17
4 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, scanning and faxing (quotas,
charging, allocation and logging)
Allocation of copying, scanning and faxing to accounts/departments/costcenters/projects
Release jobs from a hold/release queue (Secure & Find Me Printing)
Group based access control: Limit access to color copying, the device as a
whole, or to selected user groups
Self-associate swipe cards with domain user accounts directly at the device
Streamlined interface throughout
Self-association and print release are possible as part of the device login
Account invoice and comment options are supported
Customizability of print release and account selection screens
Logo, messages and colors are customizable
Highlights of the embedded solution include:
4.1 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.
4.2 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.
4.3 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 as regularly as software updates.
4.4 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.

4.5 Security
A large percentage of PaperCut’s user base is in educational environments where
security is important. All embedded solutions are developed with security in mind.
Where security objectives cannot be satisfied, the deficiencies are fully disclosed.

5 Installation
This section covers the installation of the PaperCut embedded application for
compatible Konica Minolta MFDs. The embedded application will enable MFD
access control, secure printing and “Find-Me” printing, and allow logging and control
copying, scanning and faxing.(for information on just tracking network printing see
the PaperCut user manual).
5.1 Konica Minolta i-Option Device Compatibility
The PaperCut MF Konica Minolta i-Option device type is available as either an
OpenAPI 3.x or OpenAPI 4.x capable device type, and you should select the correct
device type for the physical device you have.
Note that an OpenAPI 4.x device can still use PaperCut’s OpenAPI 3.x configuration;
however with the following feature omissions.



Full screen UI mode, to maximize the size of the UI displayed
Automatic SSL certificate registration on the device
Current username display when logged on to the device
The embedded software will automatically detect if i-Option is supported by the MFD
and run with i-Option (web browser UI) as a preference, where i-Option is not
supported it will continue to run using Konica Minolta standard UI screens. Automatic
browser selection will be skipped for any existing devices on upgrade unless
explicitly set through configuration, for details see section 5.4.
5.1.1
MFD Compatibility
PaperCut embedded i-Option supports any multi-function browser capable Konica
Minolta device with “OpenAPI” 3.1+ and a hard drive installed.
Such a device must have the i-Option license installed in the form of an LK101
upgrade kit from Konica Minolta.
Refer to: http://www.biz.konicaminolta.com/solutions/i_option/#SPECIFICATIONS
NOTE: The following devices also require additional memory when running OpenAPI
applications (like PaperCut), please contact Konica Minolta for information:

Bizhub C203\C253\C353\C451\C550\C650
i-Option is supported via two web browsers that are available on the MFD. The
interface will vary slightly depending on the browser type used.
The browsers are implemented depending on the MFD model as follows:


NetFront Browser is implemented on the following models: C650, C550,
C451/C353, C253, C203/751, 601/501, 421, 361/C652, C552, C452/C652DS,
C552DS/C360, C280, C220/423, 363, 283, 223/602, 502, 652, 552.
WebKit Browser is implemented on the following models; C754, C654/C554,
C454, C364, C284, C224/754, 654/C554e, C454e, C364e, C284e, C224e.

Devices with OpenAPI 4.x or later provide additional benefit of being able to run in
full screen browser mode, to maximize the size of the UI displayed; as well as
supporting automatic SSL certificate registration on the device.
Displaying currently logged on user in the message area of the screen is also
available on OpenAPI 4 device.
Many older devices can have their firmware upgraded to support newer OpenAPI
versions. Please contact Konica Minolta to inquire about firmware upgrade
availability for your model.
PaperCut makes all attempts to keep the product compatibility information in this
manual current. However, we make no warranties, express or implied, with respect to
manufacturer’s products or the interoperation with the listed PaperCut product(s). We
offer 40 day trial versions of PaperCut software to assist you with compatibility testing
with your network setup.
5.2 Requirements
Before installing the PaperCut Embedded Application on to the Konica Minolta
device, ensure that basic monitoring of network printing has been setup up and
tested for this device. The device would show up in the printer list in the PaperCut
web interface and have a few print jobs in its print history.
After that, ensure that the following points are checked off before getting started:







PaperCut is installed and running on your network. Please see the
‘Introduction -> Quick Start Guide’ section of the PaperCut user manual for
assistance.
Ensure that your Konica Minolta device supports OpenAPI 3.1 or later.
Ensure that the Konica Minolta device is connected to the network.
Have available the network name or IP address of the Konica Minolta device.
It is recommended that the device be configured with a static IP address.
Verify that firewalls or other network restrictions do not prevent the PaperCut
server’s access to port 50003 on the device and do not prevent the device’s
access to the PaperCut server on ports 9191 and 9192.
Ensure the device has a Web browser installed and activated (LK101
upgrade kit). You can check that the “web browser” is listed under
‘Administrator Settings > License Settings > List of Enabled functions’ on the
device.

5.3 Setup Procedure
5.3.1
Configure OpenAPI Settings
1. Log on as administrator on the device’s web interface (called “Page Scope
Web Connection”) under http:// <ip-address-of-device>/ . Tip: The default
administrator’s password usually is “12345678”, on some newer devices it is
“1234567812345678”.
2. In the “Security” section display the “PKI Settings” subsection. If there is no
“PKI Settings” subsection, please ignore this section and refer to Appendix A
instead for configuration of older devices.
3. Create a new certificate following these steps. (Even if a certificate is already
shown in the “Device Certificate List”, this certificate may not be usable for
SSL. Please delete it and re-create a new one.)
a. Click “New Registration”, select “Create and register a self-signed
Certificate” and click “OK”.
b. Fill in the fields with some values about your organization. The values
have no functional significance.
c. For the “Validity Period”, the maximum number of days offered is
recommended (usually 3650 = 10 years).
d. “Encryption Strength” can be left to the default values.
e. Click “OK”. The certificate will be generated. You will be asked to
switch the device off and on again.
4. Log into the device web interface as administrator again. In the “Security”
section display the “PKI Settings” subsection and from the menu on the left,
choose “SSL Setting”. Change “Mode using SSL/TLS” to “Admin Mode” or
“Admin Mode and User Mode” (on some machines: just “enable”). Your web
browser will re-logon to the web server under “https” mode. You may have to
confirm an “invalid certificate” in your browser.
5. Optional: If you are still using the default password, please change it in the
“Security” section. Display the subsection “Administrator Password Settings”,
tick “Password is changed” and enter a new password and click “OK”. Keep a
record of the password in a safe place, as per normal system management
best practice.
6. In the “Network” section, display the subsection “TCP Socket Setting”. Tick
“Use SSL/TLS” and click “OK”. You will be asked to switch the device off and
on again.
7. Log back into the administrator web interface, and in the “Network” section
display the “OpenAPI” subsection.
a. From the “Use SSL/TLS” drop-down list select “SSL Only”.
b. Make sure the “Port No. (SSL)” is set to 50003.
c. All “Certificate Verification Level Settings” should be set to “Do not
request” (1st item) or “Do Not Confirm” (all other items), including
“Validity Period” which often is set to “Confirm” by default.
d. Click “OK”.
8. Some newer devices include an OpenAPI password that needs to be
removed. To do so, access the administrator settings on the device’s panel,
not the web interface:
Copyright © 2015 PaperCut Software International Pty. Ltd., All Rights Reserved.
12 of 52
PaperCut –Konica-Minolta i-Option Embedded Manual
2015-02-17
Press the “Utility” button on the button panel.
Press “Administrator Settings” on the screen.
Log in with the administrator password.
Selection “System Connection” > “OpenAPI Settings” >
“Authentication”.
e. Make sure “OFF” is selected and press “OK”.
9. For security reasons it is also recommended to change the device’s default
administrator web access password.
10. Ensure SSDP protocol is enabled under Utility > Administrator > Settings >
Network Settings > SSDP Settings.
11. Ensure WebDAV server is enabled on the device (under Administrator
Settings > WebDAV Settings > WebDAV Server Setting). Port 80 on the
device will need to be accessible from the PaperCut application server in
order to push out application resources over WebDAV.
12. When MFD is configured for access check you can access the following URL:
http://<MFP IP>/OpenAPI/DeviceDescription/ from the same network location
where PaperCut server is deployed, where HOSTNAME is the hostname or
IP address of the MFD. If accessed with your web browser the operation
should complete successfully and an XML document published by the MFD
be displayed.
13. Check that the web browser is activated on the device prior to proceeding
further. For example:
a.
b.
c.
d.
If “Web Browser” is not listed, you will need to contact your Konica Minolta
dealer and obtain the LK101 upgrade kit and install the browser license on
each of your devices (via Install License function in the License Settings).

PaperCut –Konica-Minolta i-Option Embedded Manual
5.3.3
2015-02-17
Enabling Unauthenticated Printing
When PaperCut is monitoring print queues, it has control of what print jobs are
allowed to print. If PaperCut allows a job to print, we do not want the Konica Minolta
device to deny the print job or track printing twice (duplicate charging). This requires
that print authentication is disabled in the printer driver and on the device, as
described below.
Set up a print queue for the Konica MFD on the print server using Konica’s print
drivers. The driver has to be configured to allow unauthenticated printing. For
Windows, right-click the corresponding printer icon in the Printers section of Windows
Control Panel and select “Properties”. Select the “Configure” tab and:



Click “Acquire Settings”. Make sure the “Auto” check box is not selected.
Click “OK”.
o NOTE: On some newer models, the “Auto” check box can only be
unchecked and saved if the IP address and device administrator
password are entered, because the setting is saved on the device.
At the top right of the “Configure” tab, in the “Device Option” list, scroll down
to “User Authentication” and select “Disable”.
Close the Properties window by clicking “OK”.
For other operating systems, please consult your Konica documentation.
NOTE: If you are using a virtual queue for load balancing/”find me” printing, then
apply the same setting to the virtual queue as well.
In addition, a corresponding device option has to be set on the device, either
on the device screen or in the device web interface. Some devices may not
offer the option to configure at the device or in the web interface. For
configuration at the device screen:






Press the “Utility/Counter” button.
Select “Administrator Settings”. Enter your administrator password and press
“OK”.
Select “User Authentication/Account Track”.
Select “Print without Authentication”.
Select “Allow”.
Select “OK”.

an indication of this setting needing adjusting.
5.3.5
PaperCut Settings
1. Ensure you are logged out of the device’s web interface from the previous
step. PaperCut cannot communicate with the device while an administrator is logged
in to the device’s web interface.
2. Log in to the PaperCut administration interface using a web browser (e.g.
http://papercut-server:9191/admin ).
3. Navigate to “Options -> Advanced” and ensure the option “Enable external hardware
integration” is enabled.
4. Press “Apply”.

both copy and print release functionality allows for post-installation testing. Chapter 4
shows how to change this setting later.
13. Click “OK”.
5.3.6
Verify Device Creation
The “Device Details” screen will now display, and it has an area titled “Device status” which
after clicking the “Refresh” link should show “Started – setting up device integration…”.
Please click “Refresh” again a few times until the status field shows “Started - connection
confirmed”:
While the setup is running, the screen on the device should first go blank with a message
“Now remote operating” and after about 30 seconds should show the PaperCut
“Authentication” screen with username and password field.
Before proceeding with testing ensure the device has started successfully and no warnings
or errors are shown on the device page.

The MFP communicates with the PaperCut server over the network (e.g. to authenticate
users or release print jobs). To provide an additional level of security, PaperCut may be
configured to only allow device connections from a restricted range of network addresses.
This ensures that only approved devices are connected to the PaperCut server.
By default PaperCut will allow device connections from any network address. To restrict this
to a subset of IP addresses or subnets:
1. Logon to the PaperCut administration web interface at http://<papercutserver>:9191/admin
2. Go to the OptionsAdvanced tab and find the “Security” section.
3. In the “Allowed device IP addresses” field enter a comma-separated list of device IP
addresses or subnets (in the format <ip-address>/<subnet-mask>).
4. Press the “Apply” button.
5. Test the devices to ensure they can continue to contact the PaperCut server.
5.4 Upgrading to a newer version
The PaperCut Konica Minolta Embedded will be up to date when you upgrade your
PaperCut installation; no further action is necessary.
When upgrading from a standard UI version of the embedded software (OpenAPI 3.1) for the
first time, the web based interface will not be enabled by default unless a new device is
created.
To enable this for an existing device set ext-device.konica-minolta.browser.enabled to “Y”
under the advanced configuration tab of the device details screen. See section 8.1.
To force all i-Option capable Konica devices to use the standard UI set ext-device.konicaminolta.browser.enabled to “N”. See section 8.1.
Generally the configuration settings such as whether the browser is to be enabled will not be
touched after upgrade so once it’s set one way or another it will be retained unless explicitly
changed by the administrator in PaperCut.

6 Post-install testing
After completing installation and basic configuration, it is recommended to perform some
testing of the common usage scenarios. This is important for two reasons:
1. To ensure that the embedded application is working as expected.
2. To familiarize yourself with the features and functionality of PaperCut and the
embedded application.
This section outlines four test scenarios that are applicable for most organizations. Please
complete all the test scenarios relevant for your site.
The following test cases assume a device with OpenAPI 3.1 or later.
6.1 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’ – used to perform basic copier monitoring and control and to perform
print release tests.
‘testuseradvanced’ – used to perform copier monitoring and control with account
selection enabled (i.e. to charge copying to accounts/departments/cost-centers/etc).
To setup these users in PaperCut:
1. Create the ‘testusersimple’ and ‘testuseradvanced’ users in your Active Directory or
LDAP directory.
2. Login to the PaperCut’s admin web interface
3. Go to the “Options->User/Group sync” page and press “Synchronize Now”.
4. Once the sync is complete, the users will be added to PaperCut.
The next step is to configure the users. To configure ‘testusersimple’:
1. In PaperCut, select the “Users” tab
2. Select the ‘testusersimple’ user.
3. Set the user’s balance to $5.00 and verify the account is set to “Restricted”.
4. Verify that this user is set to “Automatically charge to personal account” in the
“Account selection” options.
5. Press the “OK” button to save.

8.2 Setting an explicit PaperCut Server Network Address
The copier connects to the PaperCut server to validate user credentials, display print jobs for
release, etc. 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. However, on some networks this address (in both cases) 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).

8.3 Configuring Swipe Card Readers
At the time of writing, Konica Minolta devices only support the following reader types:
1. AU-201 (MIFARE/Type-A cards).
2. AU-201H / HID Omnikey CardMan 5125 (HID Proximity cards).
3. AU-202H (HID iClass cards)
4. AU-205H / HID Omnikey 5427CK (HID Proximity/MIFARE/Type-A cards).
5. Network card readers (Elatec TWN3 with the TCP Converter/RFIdeas ethernet card
readers). These are set-up similarly to the “Fast Release” configuration in PaperCut
where the device is associated with the network reader via its IP/port.
Compatible card readers are limited to those supported by Konica Minolta firmware.
PaperCut’s embedded solutions are designed to support as many card readers as
possible and will add new card reader support at the firmware level, as new devices
become available.
The AU-202H readers which are HID proximity card readers will work in place of AU201,
but extraction of real card numbers is only possible via a custom JavaScript converter.
Some models do not support all of the listed readers. Please confirm the specifics for the
model in question with your local Konica Minolta dealer.
Swipe cards contain numbers 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 three ways:
Card Number Needs No Conversion

A typical case is the checksum being reported after the card number, separated by
an equals sign, such as 5235092385=8. PaperCut can handle this case by default;
it will extract the number before the equal sign as the card number: 5235092385.
Regular Expression Filters

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 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 “Config editor (advanced)” which is located
on the “Options” tab under “Actions”. The key is called “ext-device.card-noregex”.
o Additionally, the global setting 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.

PaperCut –Konica-Minolta i-Option Embedded Manual
o
2015-02-17
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})
 Extract the digits from between the two “=” characters in
“123453=292929=1221”: \d*=(\d*)=\d*
Card Number Format Converters
In addition to extracting parts of the card numbers using regular expressions, converting
numbers from one format to another is a common requirement. For example a card reader
may report in hexadecimal format, while the number stored in the source (e.g. Active
Directory) is in a decimal format. PaperCut includes a number of inbuilt converters to assist
here.
Note: Many card readers are configurable - the number format can be changed at the
hardware level via utility or configuration tools. PaperCut’s software-level converters are
there to support card readers that don’t offer this level of configuration, or where a global
software-level conversion is a better choice. For example it may be quicker to do the
conversion in PaperCut rather than manually reprogram 100+ readers!
Like regex’s, the convertors may be defined on either a global (all devices) or a per-device
basis.
To set globally:



Options -> Actions -> Config Editor
Search for “ext-device.card-no-converter”
Enter the name of the required converter (see table below) and click Update
To set at the device level:



Devices -> [select device] -> Advanced Config Editor
Search for “ext-device.card-no-converter”
Enter the name of the required converter (see table below) and click Update
Standard Converters
Convertor
Description
hex2dec
Convert a hexadecimal (base 16) encoded card number to
decimal format. Hexadecimal numbers usually contain 0-9 and AF. This will convert “946EBD28” to “2490285352”.
dec2hex
Convert a decimal encoded card number to hexadecimal format.
This will convert “2490285352” to “946EBD28”.
ascii-enc
Unpack an ASCII encoded card number string. E.g. given the
number “3934364542443238”, the ASCII code “39” is converted
to 9, “34” -> 4, “45” -> E, with the entire number resulting in
“946EBD28”.

javascript:<path> Advanced: Define a custom conversion function in JavaScript (see
below)
It is possible to chain or pipeline converters by delimiting with a pipe (|). For example,
ascii-enc|hex2dec will first unpack the encoded ASCII number then convert it to a
decimal.
Tip: Not sure which converter to use? Often trial and error is a good approach. After
presenting a card, the number will appear in an application logger message with conversions
applied (assuming the card is unknown to the system). Try different converters and inspect
the resulting numbers in the application log.
Using custom JavaScript
If the inbuilt converter functions are unable to meet requirements, it is possible to define your
own function using JavaScript. This is an advanced exercise and it is expected that any
implementer be familiar with programming and JavaScript. To implement your own
converter:
1. Create a file text file [app-path]/server/custom/card.js
2. Define a single JavaScript function in this file called “convert” It should accept and
return a single string. Here is a trivial example:
function convert(cardNumber) {
return cardNumber.substring(3,10).toLowerCase();
}
3. Enter a converter in the form: javascript:custom/card.js
Tip: Check the file [install-path]/server/log/server.log when testing. Any
scripting errors will be displayed as warning messages in the log.
Tip: A Javascript script may also be included in the pipeline. For example
ascii-enc|hex2dec|javascript:custom/card.js
Other advanced notes


If both a regular expression and a converter are defined, the regular expression is
applied first. This means a regular expression can be used to clean up the input (e.g.
remove checksum or delimiters) before passing to a converter.
In some special situations, a custom JavaScript implementation may not be enough.
For example, there may be a requirement to use a 3rd party system to decrypt the
number. PaperCut includes an advanced plugin architecture that the PaperCut
Software development team uses to implement these advanced converters. Please
contact support to discuss development options and costs.

8.4 Card Self-Association
Card self-association allows users to associate their card, or a new card, with this domain
account directly at the device.
8.4.1
Self-Association Workflow
The user is notified of the need for self-association and taken to the self- association screen,
which is analogous to the login screen.
The process works as follows:
1. The user swipes a card not known to PaperCut at a device with card self-association
enabled.
2. The device gives the user the option to associate the card with their account via a
separate self-authentication screen.
3. If the username and password match a valid domain username and password, the
card number is remembered and associated with this user thereafter – the user may
use this card to access devices without requiring them to enter their username and
password.

8.5 Host-based authentication
Host-based authentication refers to any external login to the MFP (originating from another
host).
This can be a desktop application such as a TWAIN driver or a web based application such
as “PageScope Web connection”.
Desktop based scanning applications using TWAIN drivers to communicate with the device
require “host-based authentication” to be enabled.
In this case a device-controlled driver or software pops up a dialog to collect any credentials
and to have the user confirm their action.
PaperCut has limited support for applications requiring host-based authentication. This
support can be enabled via the advanced configuration option “ext-device.konicaminolta.login.host-based” (see section 8.1).
Applications requesting host-based authentication will cause a popup to display on the
desktop showing username/password fields and an input field labeled “account” and “OK”
and “Cancel” buttons. The account field is a dummy field, owing to limitations of the device,
and any input will be discarded. The user is to use their username and password to
authenticate and go ahead with an action, such as scanning.
NOTE: It is possible to allow use of anonymous logins for host-based sessions (see section
8.1).
NOTE: No tracking or charging of jobs requiring host-based authentication will occur by
default. Should a user be logged in on the device’s panel at the same time the job is
authenticated at the desktop, the job will be charged to the user logged in at the panel.
8.6 Customizing the Header Logo
The embedded application displays a logo in the top left corner of the device screen. This
logo can be replaced with your organization’s own logo image.
The image must be saved as a PNG file with the filename “logo.png” and be 42 pixels high.
Save the image on the PaperCut application server at the location:
[PaperCut Install Location]\server\custom\web\device\konica\ioption\
You will need to create these folders if not present.
The embedded application will fetch the logo image from this location if present. After
copying your logo into position, verify it correctly appears in the embedded application.
8.7 Customizing the Header Colors
The header colors are defined in the “Advanced Config” tab in the device details screen, see
Config Editor. The options to change are:


ext-device.konica-minolta.header.color – the background color (type DEFAULT for
the default setting of dark green)
ext-device. konica-minolta.header.textcolor – the text color (type DEFAULT for the
default setting of white)
The colors are specified using the hexadecimal web/HTML notation (#RRGGBB) where “RR”
is the red component, “GG” is the green component and “BB” is the blue component.

8.8 Customizing the Application Logo Icon
On device models where application logo icons are supported, PaperCut applications
installed on the device will have the PaperCut logo set on the application shortcut. Note that
the shortcut is only shown where multiple applications are present (including third party) or
otherwise if the shortcut to the application is manually created on the main listing screen.
The embedded application will automatically use any icon named icon.png during the setup
process, when placed in the following location:
[PaperCut Install Location]\server\custom\web\device\konica\ioption\
Note, that the icon must be 48x48 pixels and be in the MFD specific variant of the PNG
format, which can only be created using Konica Minolta tools/OpenAPI SDK.

9 Uninstalling
In order to remove PaperCut authentication and print release functionality from the device:



Make sure the device is switched on, connected and the status on the “Device
Details” screen shows “connection confirmed”.
Delete the device in PaperCut by clicking “Delete this device” from the “Device
Details” screen. Warning: This will also delete your settings for this device such as
page cost settings.
The device screen will go blank and show a message “Now remote operating.” Wait
until it returns back to normal after 10-15 seconds, showing the standard copy
settings screen.
In order to reactivate PaperCut functionality on the device, recommence installation as per
the installation chapter of this document.
10 Known Limitations and Security
The Konica Minolta OpenAPI environment has a number of limitations that have an impact
on functionality and security.
10.1 Combining Auto-color and Duplex
A duplex copy job with the “auto color” color setting that has mixed color and black-andwhite pages will not differentiate between the color mode of the front and back side of a
sheet. The color mode of both pages will be recorded as that of the front side.
10.2 Copy restrictions on restricted accounts
Users are prevented from logging in with a restricted account (user account or shared
account) if another copy job charged to the same account is still in progress. Copy jobs in
progress can be viewed using the “Job List” button on the device screen. Once the previous
copy job has finished, users can log in again and charge to the restricted account. This
behavior can be overridden using a configuration key, please see chapter 8.1.
10.3 PageScope Box Operator PC software
The PageScope Box Operator PC software is not designed to work with an MFD connected
to an OpenAPI authentication application (like PaperCut). This is a limitation of the MFD and
Box Operator software.
Users still have access to the Box Operator functionality via the devices web browser
interface. It is recommended that users use this web interface instead of the PC software.
10.4 Job logging in case of network outages or firmware defects
PaperCut logs any user’s jobs after that user logs out, and the last job started during the
session finishes. In case of network outages or device firmware defects, the log out may not
have been reported to PaperCut by the device. PaperCut employs a number of timeout
mechanisms to ensure jobs will still get logged eventually.

After a delay of 1 hour (configurable, see section 8.1) of any user’s inactivity, the user
is assumed to have logged out and their jobs will be logged. Their funds, if escrowed,
will also be made available and – in case of restricted users – logging in is allowed
again.

PaperCut –Konica-Minolta i-Option Embedded Manual
2015-02-17
o


Tracking log outs with early firmware releases of the A4 bizhub C35 model
(mid-2011) has been shown to be more challenging than with A3 models. The
escrow timeout therefore defaults to 10 minutes on those devices.
After this delay of one hour, jobs being reported as finished by the device will still be
logged by PaperCut, with a delay of 5 minutes (configurable, see section 8.1). An
example for a job being started during a session and not completing before one hour
later may be a job that has been paused due to paper outage.
Jobs reported after more than 24 hours of one user’s inactivity (configurable, see
section 8.1) will not be logged or charged to any user.
10.5 Account Selection and Print Release
The authentication process may present an option to select a shared account and, if
presented, will enforce that one account be selected. Copies produced will be charged to
this shared account. However, print jobs released will remain unaffected by this choice and
will be charged to the account selected when sending the print job.
10.6 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 is also important that administrators know how
to bypass/disable the system if direct copier access is required – say to change advanced
system settings. Administrations should take the following precautions:
The copier’s administrator password should be changed and always kept secure.
10.7 Release All Device Configuration is Always Shown
The embedded solution supports making the “Print All” button that releases all jobs on the
print release screen configurable. Administrators may take away this ability on a device.
Note that the option is shown even when operating with the non i-Option device/mode
(where it is not supported).
10.8Browser Resetting to the Connection Screen
After a period of inactivity on the MFD, the browser will restart and go to the PaperCut
connection screen followed by the start screen, which varies depending on the device
configuration in PaperCut.
The automatic reset behaviour is controlled by the device and is configurable using:
Administrator setting > Environment setting > Reset setting > Auto reset > Web browser.
Note that hitting “Reset” button on the panel will reset the browser to the initial screen so any
screen currently shown will be navigated from and dismissed, this is not configurable.

10.9 Browser screen appears with scroll bars
The embedded software automatically detects maximum display panel resolution advertised
by the device and runs at that resolution.
On some devices, a higher resolution value may be returned preventing the screen from
being sized correctly and resulting in scroll bars appearing.
This makes the interface harder to use due to excessive scrolling, which can be rectified by
manually overriding the configuration settings (ext-device.konica-minolta.browser.screenheight and ext-device.konica-minolta.browser.screen-width) until optimal resolution is
achieved. See section 8.1.
10.10 Browser SSL Certificate Installation
The i-Option embedded application supports automatic installation of SSL certificates. This
capability is only supported on OpenAPI 4.x devices, and works as follows:




The certificate assigned to the PaperCut application server (that is the certificate
used for the identity of the application server when SSL is enabled) is located and
retrieved.
The certificate will be automatically imported as trusted to the browser of the MFD.
If the device doesn’t support SSL certificate importing, and an SSL connection to the
PaperCut application server is used using the default self-signed certificate, then the
browser may display warnings about the SSL connections (trust, hostname
verification). In such cases the certificate may need to be manually installed by the
administrator.
If a certificate issued by the standard issuing certificate authorities is used on the
PaperCut application server, then the manual steps may not be needed (as the
device browser comes with a set of ‘standard’ trusted certificates).
Example SSL warning dialog displayed by the NetFront browser:

10.11 Browser and connection errors
The browser that’s installed on the MFD may show error pop-ups whenever any connectivity
errors are detected between the browser and the application server. These are controlled by
the browser and the device including any messages that are displayed.
When a pop-up dialog is displayed the device may switch away from the browser to the
native user interface. After acknowledging the error dialog the switch back to the browser
application is done. It is possible for switch back to not work correctly and either the browser
interface not to be brought to the foreground automatically or a blank screen to be shown
which can be rectified by hitting “Reset” key to reset the browser to the initial screen.

11 FAQ & Troubleshooting
The device screen is showing “Connecting to server …” for an extended period
This message should not appear for more than a few seconds. If this message does not go
away (or if it is followed by an error message) then this indicates a problem.
1. Is the device’s network connection functional?
2. Is there a useful error message displayed in the PaperCut admin interface at
"Devices -> [device] -> Device status" (gray box)?
3. Try switching off the device for 5 seconds and switching it on again. This may
resolve some network connectivity issues.
4. Can the device connect to the PaperCut server on port 9192? You may need to
check routers and firewalls, including the Windows software firewall. A good way to
test this is to telnet to the server’s IP address on port 9192 (telnet 1.2.3.4
9192).
5. Does the device have the latest firmware installed? Connection problems may occur
with older firmware versions on some devices.
6. What is the IP address of the primary server? When starting the application server
service, e.g. after a reboot or, in Windows, through Control Panel > Administrative
Tools > Services > PaperCut Application Server, you will find a line like this in the log
file [app-path]/server/logs/server.log:
# System details: max memory: 493.1 MB, processors: 2, free space: 119,516.8
MB, hostname: aragorn, IP addresses: [192.168.1.23,
fe80:0:0:0:d168:5b94:721c:19b3%10], runtime: 1.6.0_11-b03, time-zone:
Australia/Sydney, locale: en_AU, encoding: windows-1252
The first IP address in the list of "IP addresses: [ ... ]" will be the one that the Konica
Minolta device uses to contact the PaperCut server. If you want it to use another
address, e.g. if you have multiple interfaces; please change the option
"system.network-address" in the global config editor, which is in the
administrator web interface on the “Options” tab under “Actions” on the left (not to be
confused with the device-level config editor on the “Devices” tab).
When starting the device with no network connection the boot screen may be
continuously displayed
Device may not discover an active network connection after a certain point and remain on
Konica Minolta boot screen, possible remedy may be to hold the power button on the panel
to trigger the “Sub Power Off” mode followed by turning it on and hitting ‘Access’ button.
Another alternative would be powering off and on using the main power switch.
The device screen is showing an error message “Your copy job has reached its
maximum color/black & white allowance” although no user is currently accessing the
device
This message appears when a user starts a copy job, walks away and at some point the
copy job reaches its maximum allowance. The user that started the copy job or an
administrator will have to log in to delete the job.

After restarting the MFP authentication/connectivity to PaperCut application server
stops.
This probleyoum may occur even if embedded was running successfully before the restart of
the device. Repeating the embedded setup rectifies the problem temporarily until the reboot.
This may occur on some devices if SSDP network protocol is disabled. Even if not used it
has to be enabled for the device to support integration with external authentication servers
reliably.
I am seeing an error in the Device summary page that states “Error: login: error=12,
message=no permission”
This message usually indicates that the credentials you’ve used to connect to the device are
wrong. These credentials will be the same as the username and password you enter when
logging into the admin UI of the device.
Warning appears on device summary page that states “The i-Option browser interface
is not available.”
The warning appears if the target device is detected as supporting web browser functionality
but it’s not been enabled in the configuration. The default (standard UI) interface is being
used instead. Advanced device configuration key ext-device.konica-minolta.browser.enabled
can be set to Y to enable i-Option (browser) interface. See Configuration Editor 8.1.
Standard Konica Minolta UI is shown instead of PaperCut’s web browser UI even
though i-Option is setup.
Ensure the device has started successfully by checking device status window on the Device
Details > Summary page.
Check that the browser interface is not disabled in PaperCut configuration under Device
Details > Advanced Config tab under key ext-device.konica-minolta.browser.enabled (Y for
browser/i-Option interface). See Configuration Editor 8.1.
If the configuration looks in order, this may mean that the setup process has determined that
the browser functionality is not available on the device, please check you have browser
license installed on the MFP and that you have obtained LK101 upgrade kit from Konica
Minolta, Refer to setup procedure step 13.
Device displays continuously displays “Connecting” message but doesn’t connect to
PaperCut application server.
The connecting screen is automatically rendered as the first screen on the device which
immediately should proceed to the logon screen. The transition is done using JavaScript so
if it’s disabled in the browser settings this will not occur. Please check the browser settings
on the MFP and any relevant networking settings that may impede connectivity to PaperCut
application server from the MFP. See 5.3.2
Browser gestures resize the authentication screen.
The web browser on the MFD used for hosting all of the UI supports gestures. The gestures
such as “pinch in” or “pinch out” allow the window to be resized and content zoomed.
This can be done by any user of the device and will scale the displayed page accordingly,
currently this feature cannot be controlled from software or configured on the device. The
double tap gesture will allow the screen to be returned to original view.
Alternatively gestures may be disabled in the service mode.
Long document and account names do not use ellipsis.

When running on device models that include NetFront browser any long document names or
long account names may not include the terminating ellipsis suffix ‘…’ the values instead are
simply truncated.
I am getting the following error message on device screen “Unable to unlock device
for use, please try again.”
This message may intermittently be shown at the end of the login process into the MFD
when done immediately after another user has logged out that had a job finishing at the time.
The error may occur intermittently anywhere between 10 seconds to a minute after the job
has finished and another login has started.
When using scan to me (email) feature both from and to addresses are set to the user
email address.
MFD allows the email address to be set for the machine under administrator settings,
however when used together with the authentication application and personal sender is
enabled (ext-device.konica-minolta.email.personalized-sender) the MFD automatically uses
this address for both to and from fields in any emails.
If personal sender value is not set, the configured machine email address takes effect and is
used as from field but scan to me function is not enabled by the device.
This is a known limitation of the OpenAPI platform.
When the UI is shown, a message is displayed: “Certificate credentials could not be
verified”
This message is usually indicative of the MFD browser not having the certificate used by
PaperCut application server in its trusted certificate store.
When managing the device using OpenAPI4 device type the certificate is usually
automatically imported.
Depending on the type of browser installed on the device and the model/firmware it may be
possible to manually import the certificate.
In the case of models using NetFront browser, the certificate can be manually imported by
logging to the device as administrator and starting the browser manually then importing the
certificate via the browser UI (URLInput button).
Normally in this case the certificate needs to be extracted out of PaperCut and hosted on
any web server that can be accessed from the MFD. A URL to the hosted certificate is used
to import the certificate into the browser.
Alternatively, it may be possible to turn the certificate validation off by logging in as
