Control Color printing on Dell 5100cn and 5110cn Over Network
Posted on 2010-08-31
I have a Windows 2008 server and I want to be able to control who prints in color and who prints in black and white. The reason for this is in a school enviroment we do not want students wasting toner.
The printers in question are Dell 5100cn and Dell 5110cn. I have setup the printers on the server (Windows 2008), shared the printers, and then distributerd them through group policy. I used the drivers downloaded from Dell's website. All workstations are Windows XP SP3.
I have tried creating multiple instances of the printer with different print preferences on the server but the users always have the default settings on their printer after it installs for them.
Any help in limiting who can use b&w printing and who color?
