OP Connector

If more than one Print Server is available on your network and some computers need to be able to print to more than one Print Server, you will need to install the OP Connnector software on your next Print Servers. OP can then be configured to select different Print Servers on your network to control specific print jobs.

Windows Setup

Install OP Connector and configure it for a specific print server:
1. Download and run the latest OP Connector from http://www/fitosoft.com/downloads/
2. Follow the installation instructions that appear on the screen
3. The OP Connector will be installed on your computer

Select OP Server from the list:

Type the OP administrator name and password:


Linux Setup


1. Download OP Desktop Connector from: https://fitosoft.com/downloads/

2. Extract archive
$ tar -zxf op_desktop_connector.tar.gz

3. Open op_desktop_connector directory:
$ cd op_desktop_connector

4. Run install script
$ sudo ./install.sh

Configure OP Desktop Connector for a specific print server:

Enter OP server hostname or ip address: <OP Desktop Server>
Enter OP server port number [1562]:
Enter local hostname [ubuntu]:
Enter OP administrator's name: <OP Admin name>
Enter OP administrator`s password: <OP Admin password>
Enable tracing to /etc/cups/op_trace.txt (0 - off, 1 - on) [0]:
Enable printing if exception occurred (0 - off, 1 - on) [1]:
Prepend each DeviceURI value for all printers with 'tea4cups://') [Y]:

Either from CUPS' web interface, prepend Device URI  for printer with 'tea4cups://'.

Or by directly modifying CUPS' printers.conf file, or with the lpadmin command line tool, just prepend each DeviceURI value with 'tea4cups://'. If you modified printers.conf directly instead of using lpadmin then don't forget to restart CUPS.


To remove 'tea4cups://' for all printers launch remove_tea4cups.py

You need to open port 1562 (UDP and TCP). This port must be accessible from the Internet on the machine running the OP Desktop Connector.


1 - Set "trace = 1" in the [global] section of /etc/cups/op-desktop-connector.conf
2 - Print something on a print queue managed by Tea4CUPS.
3 - Look at /etc/cups/op_trace.txt file for diagnostic and error messages.
