Lock Down Network Printers Colo Options

Hello,

     I have a client that has 2 Ricoh Color Copiers.  They have setup on a Windows 2003 server.  On the server they went to Printer Preferences and set to Black and White as they want that by default and don't want avg users to be able to change.

In the security tab of the printer they have the Domain Users and Everyone Group with Print only option selected.  However when a domain user tries to print they can still change the option to go to Color.  Are they missing a step?  They want users to pritn in B&W only and only a few select users to have the color option.  thanks.

Or just look for a suitable mono only driver. If one isn't available for the device, maybe find a "standard" pcl 4, 5 or 6 driver. i.e. Laserjet 4, laserjet 5.

What device is this?

They are ricoh Aficio MP C4500.  So I would create two printers?  One with normal driver and the other with mono driver only?

If the MP4500 & MPC4500 have similar features (trays, etc) then yes, try those 2 drivers first. Otherwise, post the PPD for the MPC4500. Either way you will have 2 drivers installed.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
