Telling InfoPrint Manager where your remote resources are located

Once you have made the resources available, you have to make sure the InfoPrint Manager destinations that will be using them know where they are. To complete this configuration:
  1. On the system that InfoPrint Manager runs on, map a network drive to the directory that your resources reside in.
    1. Open Windows Explorer.
    2. Click Tools → Map Network Drive.
    3. Specify the user and password to use.


      1. In the Map Network Drive dialog, select a drive letter that you are not currently using from the drop-down menu in the Drive field.
      2. In the Folder field, type the Universal Naming Convention (UNC) name of the directory you shared on the system that your resources are stored on server in this format: \\resourcesystem\sharename.
      3. Select Reconnect at logon.
      4. Click Connect using a different user name.
      5. In the Connect As dialog, type the user name and password that you created in the step 1 in Using Windows Server.
      6. Click OK in the Connect As dialog.
      7. Click Finish in the Map Network Drive dialog.

  2. Start the InfoPrint Administration GUI.
  3. Select one of the printers that needs to access these resources and right-click it.
  4. Select Properties from the pop-up menu.
  5. In the Properties notebook for this printer, click AFP Resources.
  6. Find the correct field for your situation. For example, if your directory only holds fonts, find the Location of fonts field; if it holds only overlays, find the Location of overlays field. However, if the directory holds a variety of resources, find the Location of resources field.
  7. In the correct field, type the letter of the drive you mapped in step 1.3 and the share name of the directory that contains the resources. For example: x:\afpresources.
  8. Click OK to close the properties notebook and make the settings take effect.
