Novell iPrint Client for Macintosh


Users should not be prompted for authentication when installing an SSL enabled iPrint printer to a Macintosh workstation when the user credentials are stored in the keychain.  However, there are two scenarios where the user is prompted:

Scenario 1: The browser accessing the /ipp page to install the SSL enabled printer is Firefox.
Scenario 2: The user is an Active Directory user (any browser type).


Supply the password when prompted. The printer will install if the user has Access Control rights to the iPrint printer.

Novell is investigating this issue.
