Workstation Devices

Workstation devices are printers that Equitrac tracks using the Desktop Printing feature, which is available as part of the Equitrac Client installation. Any printer you can connect to a client workstation using LPT or USB qualifies as a workstation device.

Workstation device are registered automatically in System Manager > Devices > Workstation Devices when users print from a workstation to a workstation device. The device is registered in Equitrac using the default settings. You can also add a workstation device manually, if needed. See the Equitrac Client Installation and Setup Guide for details.

Workstations that print via direct IP to a networked printer should use the workstation direct IP printing (DRC) feature of the Workstation Client. Unlike workstation devices, DRC printers are not listed in the workstation device view. Instead, they appear in the Standard view as if they were DRE printers.
