1 Overview
This manual provides an overview of the installation, configuration and operation of
PaperCut’s embedded software Multi-Function Device (MFD) solution for Kyocera. For
general documentation on PaperCut MF, please see the PaperCut MF manual (also available
as online help in the PaperCut administration web interface).
Today’s MFDs are intelligent – 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 provide walk-up copier users with the same
rich application features provided in the print control area. These include:







Secure access to device functions via Card Swipe, Username plus Password, etc.
End user authentication including integration with single sign-on environments
Monitoring and control of photocopying, scanning, faxing and on-device printing
from device storage and USB drives to support quotas, charging, allocation and
logging
Allocation of all job types to accounts/departments/cost-centers/projects
Account invoice and comment options are supported
Release print jobs from a hold/release queue, also known as Secure & Find Me
Printing
Group based access control: Limit access to color copying or to the device as a whole
to selected user groups.
Highlights of the embedded solution include:
1.1 Consistency
The embedded solution is developed by the PaperCut Software development team and the
MFD interface is consistent with the workstation print interface, so users only have to learn
one system.
1.2 Integration
PaperCut is a single integrated solution where print 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 features can
be delivered to users regularly as software updates.
1.4 Vendor neutrality
PaperCut remains true to its vendor neutral stance. All embedded solutions are equal and
support all server OS’s including Windows, Linux and Mac.

Authentication methods available for a device
Not all authentication methods are supported on all devices. A grayed-out option indicates that the
option is not supported on this 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 may log in with their identity number. Identity numbers are
convenient when usernames are long or cumbersome to enter. For
example, rather than entering a username like ‘john.smith.001’, it may
be more convenient to enter an employee ID of ‘1234’. See the
PaperCut user manual for information about user identity numbers,
including importing identity numbers from an external source.
Identity number ->
Require PIN
When a user logs in with their identity number, they must also provide
their associated PIN. This provides additional security for identity
number logins.
Swipe card
The user may log in by swiping a card (e.g. magnetic stripe, smart card,
RFID). See the PaperCut user manual for information about user card
numbers, including importing card numbers from an external source.
See section 9 for a list of supported card readers.
Swipe card -> Require
PIN
When a user logs in by swiping a card, they must also provide their
associated PIN. This provides additional security for swipe card logins.
Swipe card -> Enable selfassociation with existing
user accounts
Users can swipe cards previously not used or registered at the device
with PaperCut and will be prompted for their username and password.
The swipe card can then be used at subsequent logins. See section 6.2
for advanced configuration of this function.
Copyright © 2010-2015 PaperCut Software International Pty. Ltd., All Rights Reserved.
17 of 29
| Kyocera Embedded Manual
Automatically login as
user
2015-09-02
Specifies that this device should always automatically log in as the given
user. This option overrides all other authentication methods
5.3 Offline mode
Offline mode enables the device to continue being used when the PaperCut server is unavailable.
See the PaperCut MF manual for details.
5.4 Usage of panel keys for ID number and PIN or card PIN
When logging in with an ID number, and optionally a PIN, the keys 0 – 9 on the device panel may be
used in place of the on-screen keyboard provided ID number and PIN are numeric. Panel keys may
be used for PIN entry after a card swipe, too. The corresponding fields are highlighted with a blue
frame on the screen.
In addition, the panel keys ‘C’ and ‘Enter’ may be used:


‘C’ clears the field in case of a mistyped number.
‘Enter’ advances the highlight to the next field – in case of screens with more than one field
on them such as the ID number + PIN login screen, or performs the log in equivalent to
pressing the “Login” button on the screen after the last field on the screen has been entered
or the screen only has one field.
5.5 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. The Security tab on each account controls account security
/access.
5.6 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 before the user logs in to the device.
The text can be customized by editing the device configuration from the PaperCut administration
interface. For more details see section 6.

username and password are valid for the device. The value “DEFAULT”
in this field will re-enable the default text.
ext-device.kyoceramita.restricted.allow-busylogin
Setting this to “Y” will allow users to log in and charge jobs to a
restricted account (user account or shared account) if any other job –
charged to the same or another account – is still in progress. This may
cause cost overruns with users going into negative balance.
ext-device-msg.cardassociation
Message to display when users are requested to associate their swipe
card with an existing user account. See section 5.2 for details. Specify
“DEFAULT” for the default text.
ext-device.self-associationallowed-card-regex
Specify a regular expression that limits which card numbers are
accepted for associating swipe cards with user accounts. See section
5.2 for details. Please contact PaperCut support for help with regular
expressions. Defaults to “.*” (dot-star) which includes all card
numbers.

ext-device.card-selfassociation.use-secondarycard-number
2015-09-02
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-kyoceramita.login.device-adminusers
Specify which users are given device admin rights when logged in.
Device admin rights allow editing the address book and other
advanced functions available in the System Menu. As device admin
rights offer full device access, including the ability to deactivate the
PaperCut application, only trusted users should be given device admin
rights.
Specify “NONE” for no users to receive device admin rights (default).
Or specify a list of comma separated user names identifying the users
to receive device admin rights.
Or specify “*” to give device admin rights to all users.
ext-device.kyoceramita.login.show-release
Change this to ‘N’ to skip the print release screen during the login
process even with print release enabled. The print release screen will
then only be accessible by choosing PaperCut from the devices’
application menu. See section 6.4 for recommended settings for this
workflow.
ext-device.kyoceramita.release.list-format
Change this to change the displayed list of print jobs pending release
to include details in addition to or in place of the document name. Use
the following place holders for document details: %document% document name, %user% - username, %pages% - no. of pages,
%time% - time of printing, %cost% - cost of print job, %client% machine the print job was sent from. Example: “%user% %document%” would show jobs in the form “jsmith – Tax Form.pdf”.
ext-device.kyoceramita.release.show-cost
Set to ‘N’ to remove the cost display from the print release details
screen. Suitable for “release only” or “silent tracking” environments.
ext-device.kyoceramita.release.show-busy
Set to ‘Y’ to show a warning message when users are releasing
documents while the device is still busy printing or copying.
ext-device.kyoceramita.release.show-busy.jobtimeout
When above option is enabled then jobs that have been paused
(paper jam, out of paper) for this time are considered not to be
keeping the printer busy.

ext-device-msg.busy-onrelease
Message to display when above option is enabled. Specify “DEFAULT”
for the default text.
ext-device.card-no-regex
See section 6.3.2.
ext-device.kyoceramita.email.personalizedsender
Setting this to “Y” will take the user’s email address as stored in the
user’s PaperCut profile and use it as the “From”/”Sender” address
when scanning to email. (Note: ECOSYS/FS series devices may need a
firmware upgrade)
ext-device.kyoceramita.header.color
See section 6.2.2.
ext-device.kyoceramita.header.textcolor
See section 6.2.2.
ext-device.kyoceramita.restricted.allowmultiple-txn
Setting this to “Y” will allow users to charge jobs to a restricted
account (user account or shared account) if another job charged to
the same account is still in progress. This may cause cost overruns
with users going into negative balance.
ext-device.kyoceramita.extra-app-button.label
TASKalfa devices only. If set to a value other than “NONE” will display
a second button with this label underneath “Use Copier Functions” on
the print release screen. Pressing this button will enable access to the
device functions and show a specific device function, defined by extdevice.kyocera-mita.extra-app-button.target (see below). Example:
“Use Scanner”
ext-device.kyoceramita.extra-appbutton.target
TASKalfa devices only. Device function to show when pressing the
button labeled using “ext-device.kyocera-mita.extra-appbutton.label”, see above. Options are: APPLICATION, COPY,
CUSTOM_BOX, FAX_BOX, JOB_BOX, PROGRAM,
REMOVABLE_MEMORY_BOX, SEND, STATUS, UD_COPY and UD_SEND.
ext-device.kyoceramita.timezone.use-server
Setting this to “Y” will make the embedded app use the timezone of
the server for displaying job creation times in the PaperCut print
release job list. This overcomes some shortcomings with respect to
daylight savings that have been observed in Kyocera devices.
6.2 Look and feel of the user interface
6.2.1 Customized logos
The embedded application header has a header logo. This logo can be replaced with your
organization’s logo.

2015-09-02
The image must be saved as PNG files with the filename “logo.png” and should be 55 pixels high
and not more than 300 pixels wide, and less than 50 kB in file size.
This image should be saved on the PaperCut application server in the PaperCut application directory
under the subdirectory server\custom\web\device\kyocera-mita. Create the
subdirectory if necessary. The embedded application will fetch the image from the server to display
it on the device screen.
Verify the correct layout on the device screen after producing the image.
6.2.2 Custom header color
The header colors are defined in the Advanced Config in the devices details screen, see section 6.1.
The options to change are:


ext-device.kyocera-mita.header.color – the background color (type DEFAULT for the default
setting of dark green)
ext-device.kyocera-mita.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.
6.3 Configuring swipe card readers
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:
6.3.1 No conversion required

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.
6.3.2 Regular expression filter

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 (advanced)” which you will find on the
Options tab under Actions. The key is called “ext-device.card-no-regex”.
o The global setting however can be overridden on a per-device basis: The key “extdevice.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.

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.
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*
6.3.3 Format conversion
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 regexes, the convertors may be defined on either a global (all devices) or on 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
6.3.3.1 Standard Converters
The following table lists the converters available.
Convertor
Description
hex2dec
Convert a hexadecimal (base 16) encoded card number to decimal
format. Hexadecimal numbers usually contain 0-9 and A-F. 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, asciienc|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.
6.3.3.2 Using custom JavaScript
If the inbuilt converter functions are unable to meet the 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 [install-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
6.3.3.3 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.

6.4 Release-only expedited workflow
In environments where all or most users do not use account selection (for instance in larger
corporate environments where PaperCut is used purely for monitoring purposes), the following
settings result in an expedited workflow that requires fewer key presses to access all essential
functions:



In PaperCut, on the device’s details page, untick “Show account confirmation”.
In PaperCut, in the device’s config editor, set “ext-device.kyocera-mita.login.show-release”
to ‘N’.
On the device itself, in the System Menu, select Common, select “Default Application” and
choose PaperCut as default application.
This will result in the following workflow:





User logs in.
Device displays print release.
User can directly switch to Copy/Send/Fax/Document Box functions by pressing the
corresponding button on the left of the panel.
User goes back to print release by pressing the Application button on the panel.
User logs out using the Logout button.
Users that do have account selection enabled for them will see an additional account selection step
on login that will display even when they only log in to release prints. For this reason the above
configuration is only recommended in “release only” or “silent tracking” scenarios where users’
activity is automatically logged to their personal or a shared account.
6.5 Strict zero-stop copying
When a device has been configured for standard zero-stop copying, it is possible for a restricted
user’s copy job to not be halted immediately upon their balance reaching a value that is less than the
cost of the next page. Due to the pipelined processing of pages, a job can continue for a number of
pages that is dependent on the speed of the copier, resulting in a negative balance for the user.
To provide further control in this scenario, additional limit checking functionality can be enabled via
the device’s Config Editor in the PaperCut administration interface. The configuration option labeled
“ext-device.kyocera-mita.limit.strict” will need to be set to “Y” to activate this option. Please see
section 5.1 for more details regarding how to change a configuration option in the Config Editor.
This option will set PaperCut to estimate the cost of a print job, and decide ahead of time whether
the user should be allowed to copy the job based on their current balance. This estimation is based
on configurable assumptions regarding paper size, color/grayscale status and simplex/duplex status,
irrespective of these actual attributes for the copy job. The following configuration options control
these assumptions:



ext-device.kyocera-mita.limit-reference.paper-size
ext-device.kyocera-mita.limit-reference.grayscale
ext-device.kyocera-mita.limit-reference.duplex

| Kyocera Embedded Manual
2015-09-02
The precise values that these are configured to is dependent on the priorities of the organization,
however included below are two example configurations that may be useful to work from.
6.5.1.1 “Balanced” configuration
 ext-device.kyocera-mita.limit-reference.paper-size = A3
 ext-device.kyocera-mita.limit-reference.grayscale = N
 ext-device.kyocera-mita.limit-reference.duplex = N
When configured as above for a copier’s most costly values, PaperCut will generate a generous cost
estimate. The result is the chance of a cost over-run and negative balance for the user becomes nil,
however you may also encounter circumstances where copy jobs with cheaper attributes, such as a
grayscale, duplex copy on A5, are stopped a number of pages before the user’s balance would have
been depleted.
6.5.1.2 “Aggressive” configuration
 ext-device.kyocera-mita.limit-reference.paper-size = A4
 ext-device.kyocera-mita.limit-reference.grayscale = Y
 ext-device.kyocera-mita.limit-reference.duplex = Y
Under this configuration, copy jobs with more costly options may not halt before the user’s balance
becomes negative. Even so, the standard zero-stop limit will apply once the job hits those bounds as
this functionality is in addition to, rather than replacing, the standard zero-stop checks.

7 Known limitations and security
Kyocera devices have some limitations that have an impact on functionality and security.
7.1 Zero stop when copying
See section 6.1 about shortcomings of zero-stop when copying and configuration options to alleviate
these shortcomings.
7.2 Job restrictions on restricted accounts
Users are prevented from logging in with a restricted account (user account or shared account) if
another job charged to the same account is still in progress. Jobs in progress can be viewed using the
“Status/Job cancel” button on the device panel. Once the previous 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 section 6.1.

8 Troubleshooting and frequently asked
questions
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.
I’ve just moved from “Job Accounting” inbuilt to the copier and I’m having issues.
Leaving “Job Accounting” active on the copier can cause print jobs to go missing, prevent logins and
conflict with tracking of jobs. Double-check that that the functionality has been turned off on the
copier.

9 Appendix: Supported authentication card
readers
The PaperCut embedded solution for Kyocera devices currently supports the following card reader
manufacturers:



RF IDeas (USB), tested using RDR-6081AKU and MS3-00M1AKU but may support others
Elatec (USB), tested using TWN3 Mifare USB but may support others
SCM (USB), tested using SCL010 and SCL011
NOTE: The Kyocera Card Authentication Kit is required – this is an optional component that will have
to be purchased separately.
Other keyboard emulating USB card readers may work, but should be tested prior to deployment.
Please contact your Kyocera dealer for assistance.
Supporting card reader authentication is as easy as:
1. Connecting a supported card reader to the device via the USB port (Note: On some devices
this is hidden under a sticker on the side panel).
2. Enabling Swipe card as an Authentication method under the device’s configuration in
PaperCut’s web interface.
3. Ensure the card number, as read by the reader, is loaded into the Card Number field in the
PaperCut database (or consider using user self-association).
