Keep record of who is printing and the amount they print
Posted on 2013-01-30
We are doing some work in a school at the moment and there is an issue with the amount of paper and toner that is being consumed. The students (and teachers) need to print. But there are some who would print off 100 pages without even battering an eyelid.
Is there some way of monitoring who is actually doing the printing and the quantity of pages that they are printing? Maybe put some sort of password operated system in place that would log all printing. This way they would see that they are being monitored.
There are about 6 printers in different rooms that the students have use of. They are mostly HP LaserJet P2055 printers. The server is Server2003 and the desktops run W7.
Any help or ideas?
