Printing from the server
Overview
WEBDEV allows you to print from a WEBDEV site on a printer connected to the Web server. This option is useful for Intranet sites installed on a Windows server.
To print a report on one of the printers connected to the Web server, the Web server must be configured. This configuration depends on the type of printers used (local or network).
How to configure the server?

Configuring the Web server for the local printers (IIS Web servers only)

  1. In IIS, use a local account (IUSR) for the anonymous connections. This IUSR account corresponds to the "Internet guest" account and it belongs to the "Guest" group.
    To find out the IUSR account of current Web server, see How to identify the account that runs the AWP protocol.
  2. Check whether the printers used by this IUSR account are allowed to print ("Security" tab of printer properties).
Remark: No specific configuration is required for the other types of Web servers.

Configuring the Web server for the network printers

  1. Depending on the type of Web server used:
  2. Make sure the domain account is allowed to write to the Regedt32 registry:
    • Start Regedt32 ("Start .. Run .. Regedt32" from the Windows desktop).
    • Select the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\PC SOFT\WEBDEV\27.0" key.
    • Select "Security .. Rights". Check whether the domain account has the rights to create registry keys ("Total control").
  3. Check whether the printers can be accessed by the Web server.
  4. Check whether the printers used by the domain account are allowed to print ("Security" tab of printer properties).
