Controlling Color Printing on Ricoh Multifunction Machines
Posted on 2012-09-13
I am about to deploy 265 Ricoh Multifunction machines, 7 different models all with the ability to print color.
We want to centrally manage the ability to print color without using 3rd party software, multiple shares, user codes, or having to enter authentication information everytime a user prints. We have created an AD group for color printing, users authorized to print in color will be added to that group, here is what we are looking for in a perfect world:
User sends a color print job, print server receives that job and checks to see if that user is in the color AD group, if no then it prints that job in B/W, if yes then it prints in color. Again we want to do this using 1 printer share 1 universal print driver and no user codes.
Our Ricoh tech is not sure how to do this, Is this possible?
