UPS for FileMaker preferences allow selection of a single output device, which requires all workstations to be setup consistently in a multi-user environment. However, when integrated with FileMaker Pro you can override the default settings by setting a value in one of the following global fields in the ship table:

Network Output
Output_IPNumber - IP number of remote printers
Output_Username - Username assigned on remote printer

Output_Password - Password assigned on remote printer

Windows Output
Output_WindowsPort - Port name that should be used for output

Mac Output
No adjustment is required for Mac users that have USB connected printers.

Note that because these fields are global, they can be set on a workstation by workstation basis in your database.
