It is possible to establish standards for the Interface installation that will not impact the Server settings or installs of the Interface on other computers.
The OM Plus client can connect to multiple servers in a distributed printing environment. These hosts can be added and managed through this screen. To add a new host to the list, select “Add” and then input the host name for that server. To remove a server, select it and then click “Remove.”
To select which servers the client will automatically connect to on startup, make sure a check is present in the box to the left of the host name for each desired server.
For large implementations with multiple servers, the “Use Host Selection Dialog” option is provided. This will present a selectable list of servers rather than the drop down menu. This option will automatically be enabled for clients connecting to more than 15 OM Plus servers.
For all changes to be finalized, they must be saved using the “Save” button in the lower left corner.
