Hi,
 
Ive weird problem... Ive client who has hot desks in her office for users from different companies.

She want the users to be able to print to the network printers, but she wants to monitor what they print so she can charge them accordingly.

It is only small office, so Ive set up work group and print server with print management software on it (Windows XP Pro pc's). The printers are setup on the pc server/ print server.

I need to allow the users to connect to the printers via print servers even if they are in different work groups or domains...

or

Is there away to monitor direct IP printers. The printers do not have any print management.

i was think some thing like batch file- net use \\c-pc-01\Ricoh_Upper  /yes /USER:administrator ADMIN /Persistent:YES

but it cant find it...

cheers
ken

I believe Prnmgr.vbs is what you are looking for. More details can be found here:

Using your example above, I think you want it to look something like:
Cscript Prnmngr -a -s c-pc-01 -p Ricoh_Upper -m RicohMP6000C -u Administrator -w ADMIN
