To better assist companies that want to have printers on a separate network, isolated from users, you can now install Printix Client on a computer that has two network adapters (one for the printer network and one for the computer network), and then have it forward the print data to the printers on the printer network. Print data is sent via TCP port 21335. For additional information see the Printix Administrator Manual.
The Printix Client icon will feature a yellow dot when the Printix Client is on an Unknown network or if the Connection failed to the Internet/Printix Cloud.
To cope with Windows firewall policies that disable replying to ICMP Echo Requests, Printix Client is no longer relying on the ping command to check the status of computers. The ping command is still used to discover printers.

Printix Redirector: The printing user's Active Directory username is now transferred to ensure the user becomes the owner of the document in the Follow/Pull print queue offered by third party Follow Me solutions, such as PaperCut, SafeCom and Equitrac. If you have a previous version of Printix Redirector this update must be done manually. Going forward updates will happen automatically.
Deploying Printix Client via Microsoft Intune and Windows Installer through MDM did not work. An additional syntax has been introduced for the command line arguments. Example: WRAPPED_ARGUMENTS=/id:cbfce0b5-da2a-4cb6-b7f7-a04ee31cac90, where the id value should be replaced with your Printix ID as shown in the name of the MSI file.
