Fax/Notification Printing Integration (Using Remote Printer Destinations)

Administrator -

This article provides instructions to configure Printer Destinations in order to enable the printing of faxes/notifications to remote printers:
  • by email (through HP ePrint or using any other SMTP capable printer), or
  • using Google Cloud Print.

Printing Faxes/Notifications through Email

Procedure to create and configure a Printer Destination in your fax service settings in order to print faxes/notifications by email (using HP ePrint compliant printers or any other SMTP capable printers).

Note: Pre-requisites depend on your printer model:
  • For HP ePrint compliant printer:
    • The printer must be connected to the internet;
    • You must obtain an ePrint email address from HP.
  • For other SMTP capable printer:
    • You must have an SMTP server;
    • The printer must be able to receive emails from the domain corresponding to the region of your enterprise account (i.e. xmedius.com for North America or xmedius.eu for Europe);
    • You must assign an SMTP address to the printer.
  1. Access the Fax > Settings interface.
  2. In Notification Destinations > Printers, click Add and give the destination a name.
  3. Choose a Printing Method according to your printer model: SMTP or HP ePrint.
  4. Enter the email address of your printer as Destination Address.
  5. Click OK to complete the Printer Destination creation.
Important:

In order to finalize the configuration and allow your faxes to be printed, you still need to configure your fax routing mechanism to use the above created Printer Destination. This can be through the Incoming Routing Table (to route incoming faxes) or through a faxing Profile (to use it as additional notification destination).

For more information, please consult the fax settings dedicated help (Help > Fax Administration Help).

Printing Faxes/Notifications using Google Cloud Print

Procedure to create and configure a Printer Destination in your fax service settings in order to print faxes/notifications using Google Cloud Print.

Attention: Using the Google Cloud Print service in your fax routing flow allows Google access to the data contained in your faxes. Under such a configuration, encrypted fax delivery is not guaranteed end-to-end by XMedius. Please refer to Google's terms of service.
Note: This functionality requires the following:
  • A Google account must be set up (with registered printers).
  • The printer must be Google Cloud Print ready, or otherwise:
  1. Access the Fax > Settings interface.
  2. In Notification Destinations > Printers, click Add and give the destination a name.
  3. Choose Google Cloud Print as Printing Method.
  4. Acquire an OAuth Token:
    Important: Ensure to be connected to the Google account through which the remote printer will be used.
    1. Click Acquire Token.

      You will be asked to give your fax service the permission to access your Google account.

    2. Click Allow Access.
  5. Back to your Printer Destination configuration, select a printer among the ones available in the Google account.
  6. Click OK to complete the Printer Destination creation.
Important:

In order to finalize the configuration and allow your faxes to be printed, you still need to configure your fax routing mechanism to use the above created Printer Destination. This can be through the Incoming Routing Table (to route incoming faxes) or through a faxing Profile (to use it as additional notification destination).
