Additional Media Guidelines for InfoPrint 1988 MFP
Paper designed for use with xerographic copiers should provide satisfactory print quality and feed reliability. Other types of supplies may be suitable. It is recommended that users test any particular brand for suitability to their applications. Refer to the printers User's Guide for additional media specifications.
Follow the media guidelines below for successful printing:
The following paper types are not recommended for use with the printer:
As an environmentally conscious company, InfoPrint Solutions Company supports the use of recycled office paper produced specifically for use in laser (electrophotographic) printers. The printers are consistently tested with recycled paper (20-100% post-consumer waste) and a variety of test paper from around the world, using chamber tests for different temperature and humidity conditions. InfoPrint Solutions Company has found no reason to discourage the use of today's recycled office papers, but generally the following property guidelines apply to recycled paper.
Recycled paper, paper of lower weight (<60 gsm / 16 lb bond) and/or lower caliper (<3.8 mils / 0.1 mm), and paper that is cut grain-short for portrait (or short-edge) fed printers may have lower bending resistance than is required for reliable paper feeding. Before using these types of paper for laser (electrophotographic) printing, consult your paper supplier. Remember that these are general guidelines only and that paper meeting these guidelines may still cause paper feeding problems.
Labels should be selected using guidelines found in the User's Reference or the Cardstock and Label Guide and tested for acceptability. Paper labels are supported for occasional use only. VINYL AND POLYESTER LABELS ARE NOT SUPPORTED.
Due to the InfoPrint 1988 MFP print technology, paper designed for use with xerographic copiers should provide satisfactory print quality and feed reliability. Other types of supplies may be suitable. It is recommended that users test any particular brand for suitability to their applications. Refer to the User's Guide for additional media specifications.

These printers/MFPs contain several standard and optional features and functions that improve or enhance the security of the device. See User Guide for more information.
Authentication and Authorization Subsystem (AAS)
This subsystem provides a centralized method for user authentication and authorization when trying to access protected functions or settings. It supports several types of user credentials including internal accounts, NTLM, Kerberos 5, LDAP, LDAP + GSSAPI, passwords and PINs. Access controls can be used to protect or disable various functions (i.e. copy, email, and fax) on the device. Access controls can be modified through settings from the operator panel or through the embedded web server.
Many access controls support both authentication (all users with valid credentials can gain access) and authorization (users in particular groups are granted access after they successfully authenticate).
Users can also disable unneeded protocols and network communication paths by which the MFP can be configured.
Security Audit Log
The security audit log monitors the device's operations and records security-related events and security-related settings changes. Supports industry-standard syslog.
MFP touch screen lock function/Operator Panel Lock
The MFP touch screen lock function disables the MFP functions such as copy and scan-to-e-mail. This helps secure the MFP from unauthorized use when the office is idle or unattended. An administrator must enable the function and set the Function Access Control (FAC) template for use with the function. Any authorized user may then lock the MFP touch screen or unlock the touch screen using the required credentials.
When locked, every job the MFP receives, will buffer to the hard disk. A user can print jobs, including received faxes, only by entering the correct credentials on the operator panel.
Note: This setting is only functional when a hard disk is installed.
Note: Back channel data will be processed while the MFP is locked. Reports such as user or event logs can be retrieved from a locked MFP.
Using the Secure Embedded Web Server (http)
When a browser is pointed to the MFP's address with the "http://" prefix the MFP and a client system can negotiate an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) connection. SSL provides encrypted connections to a device's Embedded Web Server via the SSL port (443) instead of the default HTTP port (80). This protects the contents of the session against eavesdropping, and allows for secure remote management of the printer.
Supporting SNMPv3 (Simple Network Management Protocol version 3)
SNMPv3 protocol allows for encrypted and authenticated network communications. It also lets the administrator select a desired level of security. Prior to use, at least one user name and password must be established from the settings page. To configure for SNMPv3 through the Embedded Web Server of the MFP:
Supporting IPSec (Internal Protocol Security)
IP Security protocol provides authentication and encryption of communications at the network layer allowing all application and network communications over the IP protocol to be secure. IPSec can be set up between the MFP and up to five hosts, using both IPv4 and IPv6.
Disabling Ports and Protocols
The TCP and UDP ports can be configured to be enabled or disabled.
Using 802.1x Authentication
802.1x port authentication allows the MFP to join networks that require authentication before allowing access. 802.1x port authentication can be used with the WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) feature of an optional internal wireless print server to provide WPA-Enterprise security support.
Support for 802.1x requires the establishment of credentials for the MFP. The MFP must be known to the Authentication Server (AS). The AS will allow network access to devices presenting a valid set of credentials which typically involves a name/password combination and possibly a certificate. The AS will allow network access to the MFP presenting a valid set of credentials. The credentials can be managed by using the Embedded Web Server of the MFP.
Confidential Print Setup
Confidential Print Setup allows the designation of a maximum number of PIN entry attempts and allows setting an expiration time for print jobs. When a user exceeds a specific number of PIN entry attempts, all of the user's print jobs are deleted. When a user has not printed their jobs within a designated time period, the print jobs are deleted.
Encrypting the Hard Disk (AES-256)
Note: This setting is only available when a hard disk is installed.
The hard disk encryption setting gives the device the ability to encrypt all data, buffered and/or stored, on the devices internal hard disk drive. This protects not only residual data left over after jobs, but also protects data actively being used from malicious access at all times. When hard disk drive encryption is activated, an encryption key (256 bit AES symmetric encryption) is pseudo-randomly generated and stored in a proprietary fashion within the MFP and not on the device's hard disk drive. This measure insures the contents of the hard disk drive would remain indecipherable if the hard drive were stolen from the device.
This feature is disabled by default, and enabled through the Power On Configuration menu. When enabled or disabled, the entire drive is formatted, destroying any references to data that may have been stored previously.
Hard Disk Wiping
Hard disk wiping is the ability to clean/sanitize information buffered and/or stored on a device's internal hard disk drive. There are two levels of disk wiping supported within the device. A fast disk wipe is a single overwrite pass with all zeros. A secure disk wipe is a three overwrite passes with different bit patterns followed by a verification pass, otherwise known as a NIST compliant wipe.
There are 4 ways to initiate wiping of the hard disk:
Each of the above wiping methods can be configured to perform a single or multi-pass wipe.
Disk wiping can be enabled from the MFP touch screen, the Embedded Web Server, or manually through the Power On Configuration Menu.
Note: (1) Data written to the disk while disk wiping mode was off will not be wiped.
Using the Restricted Server List Function
The Restricted Server List lets a system support person restrict which hosts are allowed to communicate with the MFP over the network which prevents other hosts from managing and printing to the MFP. Note: The Restricted Server List only restricts TCP traffic; it does not affect UDP traffic. The Restricted Server List supports up to ten host addresses or ten network addresses.
Digitally Signed Firmware Update Files
Upgraded firmware files from InfoPrint Solutions Company are now signed with a digital signature, which verifies the source and authenticity of the updated code. This prevents a malicious user from creating and uploading to the MFP custom code that could intercept and expose potential confidential data.
Printer Management Utilities

The printer emulates an IBM mainframe, iSeries, or AS/400 host printer when used with the appropriate host software and this card. The printer emulates one TN3270E printer session and up to four TN5250E printer sessions using the LU1 SCS data stream over TCP/IP with the TN3270E and TN5250E extended Telnet protocol support in this option. This is supported directly from an iSeries, AS/400, or from a mainframe using TCP/IP or through any TN3270E capable gateway that supports TN3270E according to RFC 2355. The DSC/DSE or SCS data streams over LU3 or LU0 are not supported. The Telnet protocol function is only supported with the printer through the standard Ethernet network port or with the internal print servers.
The printer can be configured to save IPDS resources when attached to a LAN through the standard Ethernet port. This will improve performance on complex IPDS print jobs with host resources such as fonts, overlays, or page segments.
The IPDS emulation supports the IPDS data and resource towers. Fonts can be downloaded, captured and saved to an optional flash memory or optional hard disk in the printer. The US Postal Service (USPS) POSTNET bar code, USPS PLANET bar code, USPS 4 slate bar code, and the euro currency symbol are supported within IPDS. The euro currency symbol is also supported in the SCS, PostScript and PCL 6 emulations.
DBCS characters in Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Korean, and Japanese can be downloaded and printed from the host. DBCS fonts may be stored in flash memory or on the hard disk using the Font Capture feature to reduce network traffic and transmission time. The separate DBCS Font Cards cannot be used with the IPDS and SCS/TNe Card.
