    Google Cloud Printer Driver and Service for Windows

    The driver enables you to print from any windows application, while the service allows you to share printers without having to be logged into Windows.

    Download: Cloud Print Driver / Cloud Print Service (requires Google Chrome and Windows 7, Vista or XP with XPS Essentials Pack)

    Two new Cloud Print services have been announced by Google. The first is the Google Cloud Print Service which runs as a service on a Windows server and allows administrators to share hosted printers through the Cloud Print system. The printers can then be shared to users within a Google Apps for Education domain.

    This means that your current classroom printers can be shared through Cloud Print to your Google Apps users without changing any of your internal infrastructure. Access to printers can also be managed through the Google Apps control panel.

    The second new service is the similarly named Google Cloud Printer Driver. Driver allows Google Apps users to install and print to any Cloud Print printers they have access to from native Windows applications. Now you can printer to Cloud Print printers from Microsoft Office, Adobe Reader or Photoshop. (Source)

    I Have been playing with it but cant seem to get the service to work on a server will work on client. But have been using the driver for a while it works really well. Teachers can now print from home.

    This service is really good there is one thing that I have found out that must be done for it to work correctly. These firewall rules must be in place or the service will not work correctly.add rule - static ip of google cloud print service pc to www.google.com/cloudprint Port tcp/443
    add rule - static ip of google cloud print service pc to talk.google.com Port tcp/5222
    The second one is really important else the printers will seem like they are offline and you wont get a very good print service. I hope this helps anyone else.

    Papercut integration:

    PaperCut Goes Google-y with Version 13.5 – PaperCut Blog / News

    System Administrators can now set up and administer Google Cloud Print for their existing network with a simple process within the PaperCut Options tab. The solution extends to both “Cloud Ready” and “Classic” printers and multifunction devices (saving the need to purchase new hardware).

    Once Google Cloud Print is set up, PaperCut V13.5 immediately provides control and tracking of all Google Cloud Print jobs, opening up the full suite of features including Find Me Printing and cost-saving Print Quotas.

    As usual, this is a core feature for all PaperCut customers, with no extra licensing costs or add-on fees. (Yippee!!)
