Considerations to activate MID support

Consider these before you activate MID support for your print device:
  • Your print device must be capable of supporting MID. Contact your InfoPrint representative if you are not sure of your print device capability.
  • If you want incoming non-IPDS print requests to be intermingled with IPDS print requests, it is suggested that you maintain control over the print mechanism rather than activate MID.
  • Jobs must be “stacked" before the print mechanism is released. This might lead to paper loss for the print device.
  • Releasing the print mechanism might prevent the IPDS host from processing subsequent print requests until the control is returned to the host (the time depends on the capacity of each print device).
  • The MID support does not allow for sharing of the print mechanism between two IPDS hosts for InfoPrint printers.
