  • Information about Print server

    Hi,

    I want to install print server on Windows 2003 system, but how could I check & record the logs e.g. User name, file name, file size of prints given on any printer installed on that print server. should I use any third party utility? if yes can anybody suggest the same? or any other solution is appriciated.

    Regards,

    I recommend PCounter - quite cheap and does logging of everything you want. Can even impose limits like no job bigger than 20 pages, charge for prints in currency and lots more.

      I use a small trick around that, I know it is very native, but I am using it.
      I spool the doucments printed and leave them in side the spooler, later on I can have a look on them.

        You could then use a script to do some reporting using this method.
