CA Spool - secure encrypted connections to remote printers


Article ID: 145476


Updated On:




Is there a way to use an encrypted connection to print to a remote printer?

For example,  this is a current definition,  how to make sure the transmission is actually encrypted:


* Fulfillment                                      


NODE PRT1,TCP,TCPHOST=external-DNS-name,  



Release : 12.0 14.0

Component : CA Spool


The Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) can be used to encrypt data that is sent between CA Spool and printers that support IPSec.

IPSec is a standard suite of protocols by Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) that provides data authentication, integrity, and confidentiality as data is transferred between communication points across IP networks; also there are no changes required to CA Spool to enable IPSec.
