    PaperCut and Guest accounts

    So the library is being a pain now that we have papercut they want to start charging guest for printing and copying.

    We don't accept CC via our website, so the funds must be handed over directly to the librarian. Of course they want to charge the guest more than what papercut charges for printing / copying.

    What are some methods you guys have implement for guest printing / copying:

    here is our:

    20 AD accounts in a Library-Guest OU all disabled
    When a guest asks for an account the librarians enable and account and gives the user a temp password.
    The user can then login to any computer, and a login script runs, removing the general papercut queue, and puting a papercut follow me queue with only the printer behind the library desk as an option.
    User prints, and walks up to the librarian who then releases the job and charges them and takes their cash.

    Seems like a pain for everyone involved.

    So questions:

    1) What about copying, the user can walk to any copier login and make copies, how can i prevent this?
    - Restrict the accounts to a $0.00 balance? Wont that affect printing?

    Lets hear some ideas!

    How do they logon to the computers? They could be sold vouchers which can be applied to their accounts. To limit the copying, you'd need PaperCut MF if your device supports it.

    We have papercut MF, but we dont wanna prevent the machine from copying for all users.

    The temp accounts they are given are AD accounts which get reset (password wise) nightly
