InfoPrint Manager GUI software

When you install the InfoPrint Manager server, you automatically install the standard InfoPrint Manager Java GUIs: the InfoPrint Manager Administration GUI, the InfoPrint Manager Operations GUI, and the Web GUI. You can also install two additional GUIs: the Basic InfoPrint Manager Administration GUI and the Basic InfoPrint Manager Operations GUI. The Operations GUIs provide a subset of the functions available in the Administration GUIs.

You can also install the Java interfaces on a suitable Windows or Linux systems. The system does not need to have the InfoPrint Manager server software installed.

The InfoPrint Manager Web Administration Interface and InfoPrint Manager Web Management Interface are installed automatically when you install the InfoPrint Manager server. You don’t have to install the interfaces separately on the remote Windows machines. The InfoPrint Manager Web Interface can be accessed by browsers anywhere on the network.

The InfoPrint Manager Web Administration Interface supports the same security features as the InfoPrint Administration and Operations GUIs and any existing FST security settings apply to the Web Interface as well. However, the read operations taken to display the objects in the Web Administration Interface web application are performed by a special user wsClient. This user must be a member of the WebServices group. The WebServices group needs read access for the List/Query (pdls) operations on each InfoPrint Manager system the Web Administration Interface connects to. Any other operations are performed with the specific user@hostname user connecting to the web application. For more information about the FST security, see RICOH InfoPrint Manager for AIX: Procedures.

The InfoPrint Manager Web Management Interface lets you perform some of the administrative tasks on the server. You can use the InfoPrint Manager Web Management Interface to configure and administer your print environment. InfoPrint Manager Web Management Interface supports various tasks, such as enabling the LDAP security or managing the Web Server, the Web GUI, or the Pull Print environment.

The InfoPrint Manager Web Administration Interface contains a login panel where you can use the Web Administration or the LDAP credentials. The InfoPrint Manager administrator must define users in the web application using the User Management function. The user name defined for login is mapped with a FST user based on which InfoPrint Manager commands are executed. Use these credentials for accessing the Web Interface Administrator: DefaultUser for user name and password for password.
