Trusted Extensions Label Administration

Exit Print View

Updated: August 2018

Security Text on Banner and Trailer Pages

When the printer is correctly configured with the job-sheets=labeled option, a banner page and a trailer page surround each print job. The banner and trailer pages contain label-related text and handling instructions for protecting printer output. For the printer configuration procedure, see How to Configure a Multilevel Print Server and Its Printers in Trusted Extensions Configuration and Administration.

The fields and the text that are printed on the banner page are shown in Typical Banner Page of a Labeled Print Job. The callouts show the names of the labels and the strings that appear by default.

The text, labels, and warnings that appear on print jobs are configurable. The text can also be replaced with text in another language for localization.

The differences on the trailer page are shown in the following figure. A thin black line is used as a frame on the trailer page, instead of the thick gray frame on the banner page. The page type identifier on a trailer page is JOB END.

    In addition, the Security Administrator role can make the following changes in a print configuration file that is called tsol_separator.ps in the /usr/lib/cups/filter directory:

  • Localize (translate) the text on the banner and trailer pages

  • Specify alternates to default labels that are printed at the top and bottom of body pages

  • Change or omit any of the text or labels

To customize the configuration file, see the comments in the tsol_separator.ps file in the /usr/lib/cups/filter directory. For further details, see Chapter 18, Managing Labeled Printing in Trusted Extensions Configuration and Administration.
