Method for restricting color copying on the Pastel2 using Authority Group restrictions applied to the default logged-in user.
When the Authentication mode is enabled, the Pastel2 can be set to allow the automatic log in of a selected user. This user is logged in automatically at power on and immediately after the log out of other users when the LOGOUT button is pressed. In addition to other restrictions, the Pastel2 can be set to prevent COLOR copying by walk-up users while allowing BW copying. In this method, a user is created and then restricted to BW copying only. This user is then set as the default logged in user. This user will always be logged in, even if the power is cycled off/on. A walk-up user can operate the machine as-is or use their individual log-in to obtain functionality that has been assigned to them.
