Dell ProSupport Help Desk by calling 1-866-516-3115, or by sending email to Imaging_Solutions_Support_CAC@dell.com. This manual will guide you through installing the hardware, installing the software to convert the Dell S2815dn to be CACStar enabled, and configuration of the customer desired authentication control options.
Initial Setup 1. The printer must be configured to use DHCP which is the default configuration. 2. Turn the power on. After initialization is complete, the Card Waiting For Card Reader display will say . This will take about 1 ½ minutes. Manual LAN IP Address Configuration: 3.

Step 1 – MFD IP Address This is the IP address that is used for access to these administrator web pages. It is also used for host computer connection to the MFD/printer. This IP address was already set in the initial setup process using the card reader keypad.
Step 4 – Configure Default Domain This field is used for DNS Server Name resolution. Set this to the Default Domain name for the LAN. Step 5 – Press Update Local Side Configuration These settings define the IP addresses used for Local communication between the CACStar and the MFD/printer.
Security MFD Function Enabling Check the boxes for Functions that require a validated CAC Card for use. If a box is un-checked the Function will always be allowed. For example: If you want the MFD Scan-to-Folder Function to only be available when a validated CAC Card is installed, check the CAC Enable Scan-To- Folder box.
Hold Print If enabled, Print jobs will be held in the CACStar until the user is authenticated at the printer by inserting their CAC card. After authentication, the user’s jobs will be printed. CAC Print Server Set this to the IP address of the Secure Print server. Server Print Only If enabled, print jobs will only be allowed from the configured CAC Print Server.
Email Setup If you have elected to control MFD generated email with your CAC cards, you will need to configure the item shown in the screen below. SMTP Address or Server Name Set the IP address or Server Name of the SMTP server. SMTP Port Number Set the TCP port number for SMTP communications.
Force Email to Self Choose whether you want to force all emailed scans to the user’s own email address. If not checked, he can send to any email address. If this option is not selected, the user can select the recipient from the printer’s internal address book or he can use the printer to enter the email address he wants to use.
Kerberos Email Authentication Check this box if you want to use Kerberos for Email Login Authentication. If this box is checked, the "Kerberos" section of "Authentication Method" web page must be completed properly. Authentication Method CAC Validated Timeout This setting is the number of minutes of inactivity before a CAC Validated session will be terminated.
Basic This includes PIN validation, card expiration check, and X.509 card certificate validation. If an NTP server is not configured on the LAN Side Configuration page, the expiration check is bypassed. The Basic level of authentication is always included and cannot be removed from the configuration.
LDAP Query Password: Password for the LDAP service account login. LDAP Search Base: Defines the location in the directory where a search will start. Example: OU=Users, DC=Itek, DC=com LDAP Search String: The Search String is used by the LDAP server to find users. In conjunction with User ID options below, this field helps create the query to the LDAP server to find users by name.
authentication to the SMB server if so configured. Multiple entries are allowed. KDC Server IP: IP address of the Kerberos server KDC Server Port: Port number of the Kerberos server. The default is 88. KDC Realm: Kerberos Realm KDC Realm Domains: This setting is used to map domains to the realm, and is usually only needed if multiple realms are defined.
Default SMB Server Address: The IP address or server name for the default SMB server. This address will be used if the SMB server address cannot be obtained from the printer. Default SMB Service Name: The Service Name for the default SMB server, e.g. myshare$.
SMB Folder LDAP Attribute: If a Folder Name is configured using %u, the LDAP Attribute defined here will be used to retrieve the path value for the %u field. Care should be taken when using "\" characters before or after the %u - based on whether the LDAP Attribute value includes "\"...
SMB Address Book SMB Address Book entries allow definition of multiple variable-based Server/Path destinations. Each destination name has the format "SMB-Book1" to "SMB- Book99" - this name should be used for the printer's "Server Address" configuration. The following sequences may be used to specify user-related data in the destination path: %F : First name, %M : Middle Name, %L : Last name, %E : Email Address, %e : EDI-PI, %I : PIC-Identification,...
User Logging User Logging provides a means to create, view or delete a user log file to track user activity. If this is enabled, it will log the date, user name, and other information. The log can be downloaded in a csv file format for viewing.
Use this page to load Issuer and Root Certificate Authority Certificates into CACStar. PKCS7, X509, PEM and DER formats are supported. Use the Browse button to select the Certificate file on your PC; then click the Upload Certificate button. If your certificates are in a .txt file format, please send them to us, and we will convert them to a supported format.
Administrator Change Password Use this feature to change the password for the administrator. When the Change Password button is clicked, the next internal web page access will require this new password. Administrator Access CACStar User Guide Rev A27 Copyright 2017 Digital Imaging Technology Page 26...
These settings allow the admin to provide additional security by limiting CACStar admin access to specified IP addresses. If the Allow all IPs box is checked, an admin can access the CACStar configuration items from a PC at any IP address if he knows the ID and password. If it is not checked, the admin must access the CACStar configuration pages from the IP addresses specified for Administrator #1 or #2.
Firmware Update Firmware is stored in flash memory and can be updated as necessary for addition of new features. The CACStar.cfg file may also be uploaded. It is a text file that contains the CACStar configuration items. For more details about how to update the firmware, please see the separate document “Firmware Update Procedure”.
Create and Export Current Configuration Create Config File will create a configuration file containing all current settings except LAN IP Address, LAN Mask, and LAN Gateway. Thus, the Config file can be used to configure other CACStars. The passwords are encrypted so they may not be edited. The first line of the file must not be edited.
Technical Support For help obtaining the correct firmware or documentation, contact Dell’s ProSupport Help Desk by calling 1-866-516-3115, or by sending email to Imaging_Solutions_Support_CAC@dell.com This page is used to obtain Log Files and Capture Files to help diagnose network and configuration concerns. Use of these features is normally in conjunction with technical support from your vendor.
Date Time This is used to set the system date and time in CACStar if necessary. The time zone should be set to your local time zone. CACStar User Guide Rev A27 Copyright 2017 Digital Imaging Technology Page 32...
Hold Print Files Hold Print Files Hold Print files will be stored encrypted in CACStar and can be printed with CAC authentication at the printer. Hold Print files expire after the set number of days. When the expiration date is reached, the file will be deleted without being printed.
Hold File Name Matching Format This field defines the format that will be used to associate the username in the Hold Print files with Card-Validated users. Any data can go into this field and keywords will be expanded. These keywords are: %F - the user's first name %f - the first character of the user's first name %M - the user's middle name...
Export Hold Print Usernames If you want to copy the usernames from one CACStar to another, you can Export the usernames. You will get a ***.db file which you can then send to another CACStar to load them into the other CACStar. CACStar User Guide Rev A27 Copyright 2017 Digital Imaging Technology Page 35...
Status The Status pages offer three views of information about the current operations of CACStar. Number of successful card validations, number of unsuccessful card validations, network operations, date/time, and firmware version are all displayed.
