Pulling Networked Printer Data Without Using SNMP
Posted on 2013-05-18
I would like to pull page count data from over 50 networked printers. It works fine of course if I have SNMP enabled, but the network security guy forced us to turn it off on all printers. I am trying to save labor hours a tech spends printing out a page count total from each printer (adds up when factoring different floors ect), and I am also trying to avoid disrupting production (or using overtime to have a tech wait after business hours).
So is there a way to pull page count data from a networked printer without using SNMP?
I of course got the IP's and they receive data from users . . . pretty sure there is a way?
Anyone's constructive input would be appreciated.
