papercut & the universal toshiba driver

apparently, the default finishing setting for the universal toshiba driver is duplex printing for eco reasons. on the print server that hosted the papercut pay-for-print devices, i tried altering the finishing setting by opening the printer properties -> advanced -> printing defaults -> finishing -> 2-sided printing. however, whenever i made the change and hit apply and closed out the dialog the setting would revert to duplex. this happened 3 or 4 different times even after i tried making a new printing profile. at least for me, i was able to resolve this issue by first changing the setting under printer properties -> general -> preferences -> finishing -> 2-sided printing and then going back to change the setting under printer properties -> advanced -> printing defaults -> etc. this time around the setting would stick.

additionally, some printers defaulted to using ldap authentication which interfered with the papercut login process on clients. this issue can be resolved by going to printer properties -> device settings -> account settings and setting user authentication to off. in some cases, device settings retrieval -> update automatically, may need to be disabled to get this setting to stick. source: http://www.papercut.com/kb/Main/ToshibaPrintDriverSpecifyLDAPServer
