Configuration profiles are profiles you can create and attach to your printer discovery, that contain essential information about your terminals installation and settings.

You can create a new configuration profile in two places:

  • Go to MyQ, Settings, Configuration Profiles and click +Add.

  • When you are creating or configuring your printer discovery, in the configuration profile drop-down, click +Add new….

Both ways open a new configuration profile pane on the right side of the screen.

Configuration profile settings
  • Enter a Name for the configuration profile.

  • Select a Price list from the drop-down. For further information, check Price List in the MyQ Print Server guide.

  • Check the Fax module checkbox if you can and want to use it. Otherwise, leave it unchecked (default).

  • Select a Terminal type (Embedded Lite) from the drop-down. If the type you want is not listed, install the terminal package first (details in the next step) and then the correct type will be available on the drop-down menu.

    Terminal type - default options
  • Click Install terminal package.

  • Click Browse to search for the *.pkg file, select it and click Open. If you want to set a specific port, check the Advanced settings checkbox and set the port.

  • Click OK to upload the installation package.

  • Once Embedded Lite is selected as the Terminal type, Login methods become visible.

    Login methods

    You can choose between two types of login: simple login and two- step authentication. With the simple login option, you can select up to three methods of login, and with the two-step authentication, you can select from two combinations of the login methods. The Login methods are:

    • PIN - Users can log in by entering their MyQ PIN.

    • ID Card - Users can log in by swiping their ID Card. The ID Card has to be registered on the user's account on the terminal.

    • User name and password - Users can log in by entering their MyQ username and password.

    • ID Card and PIN - Users have to swipe their ID card, and then enter their MyQ PIN.

    • ID card and password - Users have to swipe their ID card, and then enter their password.

  • In the Copier operation panel idle time field, add a number between 1 and 86400 to set how many idle seconds it will take the panel to automatically log a user out.

  • Check the Automatic configuration checkbox, so that every new device is automatically configured and the terminal package is installed to it, when activated. If left unchecked, you would need to do these steps manually.

  • In the Advanced options section you can:

    • Set a Local administration PIN. This PIN is used for logging in to the terminal's administration screen. Leave it empty to use the terminal's default.

    • Check the Language selection checkbox, if you want to give the users the ability to change the screen language when they log in to the terminal.

    • Check the Display numeric keypad checkbox, if you want a numeric keypad to be visible in the terminal's login screen.

    • Choose your ID Card reader type from internal or external. An internal card reader is directly connected to the printer. An external one communicates with the server over ethernet.

  • Continue with entering the Administrator user name and Administrator password in the Printer Credentials section. They must apply to all the printers in the discovery. If these are left empty or entered incorrectly, the applied actions will fail.

  • In the Network section:

    • Select an SNMP profile.

    • You can change the MyQ server address setting on the embedded terminal. By default, the terminal communicates with the MyQ server using the server's IP address. If you want to use hostname instead, select the Hostname:.. option. This is set on the MyQ Network settings tab, under General.

    • Select Set up IP filters if you want to receive print jobs only from the MyQ server. With this option selected, a new IP filter is created on the printing device. The filter denies print jobs sent via LPD, Raw and IPP protocols from other than MyQ server IP addresses.

      IP Filters setup
  • Click Save. You Configuration Profile is now ready and can be attached to a Printer Discovery and/or to selected printers.
