Registering IIS after installing Tpms.Service on Windows Server 2008 R2

On Windows Server 2008 R2, to make sure that Tpms.Server and Tpms.Agent are able to communicate it’s necessary to register the Internet Information Services (IIS) using Aspnet_regiis.exe. On this, run on the Com­mand Prompt:

C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -i

This is only necessary in case Tpms.Server has been installed on Windows Server 2008 R2. More informa­tion can be found on:

Note! Don’t use type-4 printer drivers for printer objects on ThinPrint Ports (see Overview of cmdlets).

Installation results

After finishing installation, the Tpms components can be found as follows:

  • Tpms.Agent can be found in the Services folder of the print server or workstation
  • Tpms.Service can be found in the IIS Manager of the central web server
  • Tpms.Powershell can be found in Windows’ Start menu or can be called using
    Import-Module Tpms.Powershell

    on the admin computer.
