Restricting printer usage   28 March 2009, 08:56

This is Siva. I am maintaining a lab in my University. In that we have two printers shared my 10 computers. I want to maintain that print jobs. I found your software online.
Our lab policy is to give 30 page free print out for lab users everyday. More than we don't want to take print out.

so in short I need a software which will keep track of user day by day and restrict the usage of printer not more than 30 pages per day.

So two printers shared by 10 computers. User's usage of printer tracking. (30 sheets per day)

Thank you. Hope will get a reply.

Unfortunately, our software does not provide any restricting or quota mechanism. You can use it to measure how many jobs are printed, but it cannot control or restrict printing.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
