Argos Advanced Tracking for KIP uses two device settings - "pull" and "push". "Pull" imports data from the KIP controller, "Push" sends valid users/pins to the controller for walkup authentication.
Argos 7.0.8 introduced an exciting new feature - as-printed print tracking directly from the KIP controller. If you are running KIP 7 on your controller, Argos tracks all printing - Windows, Mac, KIP Request, etc - directly at the device. No need to track individual print queues. If you have the latest KIP software as well as Argos 7.0.8, we now recommend checking the "Windows and LPR" box under "Track Print Activity" to take advantage of this new feature.
The KIP controller will now need to be set to require authentication for walkup activity.
KIP Request is a stand-alone batch plotting utility provided by KIP. With Unified Accounting enabled on your controller, all Argos users will be available in KIP Request. To send a print job through Request, follow these steps:
KIP PrintNet is a web-based plot submission tool provided by KIP. With Unified Accounting enabled on your controller, all Argos users will be available in KIP PrintNet.
Argos supports IPS and System K controllers.
Devices running System K software must have the KIP Accounting and Cost Control license installed. Contact your KIP dealer to request this license if it is not already present.
KIP wide format devices that do not have IPS or System K series controllers can be tracked through Argos print tracking. Copies, scans and Request jobs on these models cannot be tracked.
