DLP 11 to enable USB printer connectivity

Jump to solution

Hi,

This is my first post right here and would like to see if anyone can help my problem.

My company using Mcafee ePO 5 with DLP 11 to control USB port usage. For those blocked USB user or workstation, some of them have requirement to connect USB printer for personal printing which being blocked by DLP. 

May I know if any option can define under DLP such as Device Contol, so I can allow USB printer connection. Printer model might different subject to local country standard.

Thanks.

If you are blocking the devices using the Device Control and wish to allow printers, then you need to add an exception in your rule to allow printers. You can create an exception based on your requirement, if you know the vendor id and product id of the printers that you want to allow then you can probably use the VID/PID. Other possible ways can be used based on the requirement. 

 

Please review the DLP product guide to check how you can create an exception for a DLP rule.
