Re-route Windows Server-Based Print Jobs (Print Server)

We tested out PaperCut, but it did not seem to work well. Looking for a way on a Windows-based Print Server (2008) to be able to automatically re-route print jobs when users print to another printer, and if possible display a message to the end user.

So for example a user prints a 10 page document to a desktop printer, it would then re-route to a heavy volume printer and display a message at the end user workstation about the re-routing.

Pcounter does this well, and has done for many years - it's server based and has rules that allow you to move, pause or delete jobs based on the copy count, total pages or even content.

On top of this you can report on both users and printers, by device or Colour usage.

Departmental accounting is simple to setup, and there is no workstation installation, although you may want this for notification which do not require the normal Windows comm's.

If the printers locally attached, a local client can be used to do the same role, but with central management.
