Heavy load on server from ip printing?
Posted on 2007-03-23
We have a couple of HP color Business inkjet 3000 printers that users can print to (via tcp/ip). They are currently not going through a server. We have a Win2k3 domain/active directory. We now need to restrict printing on these printers (e.g. 20 pages per job, per user). As far as I know the only way to do this is if I share those printers through a server rather than straight tcp/ip. If that is not correct, please let me know. If so, my main question is will this put an additional load on a server, such as the file server (sharing the printer through it)?
