    Print logger only seems to be just that though a logging service rather than something than can enforce quotas on printing.

    Re: Limiting printing.

    Off the wall idea....

    Empty the paper trays prior to the lesson.

    Ask the teacher how many pages he/she expects per pupil and calculate how many sheets this will be in total

    Say it's a class of 30 and they should be printing 3 pages each. Put 90 sheets in the printer and if it runs out, tough.

    OK - I'll get my coat!

    Re: Limiting printing.

    Here's one (a request, not a solution I'm afraid) - not sure if I've mentioned this before...

    Rather than limiting the kids printing to so many sheets per week etc., like most of the software solutions seem to offer, I, in an ideal world, would like to bill the department for which the kid is printing. Not necessarily homework, but certainly while in that lesson. If they're using machines within the dept., then that's easy - obviously - but how about in the ICT suites which are booked by every man and his dog - and sometimes they don;t even book - they just turn up.

    Does anyone have any ideas for solutions to this?

    There's always the Linux box running CUPS option - I know that this will do the job although I can't help with the setup. It's also a free option!

    [quote="plexer"]Print logger only seems to be just that though a logging service rather than something than can enforce quotas on printing.

    From their website...

    "The program can also inspect sizes of print jobs based on defined quotas and prohibit printing, if the quotas are exceeded (cost recovery and audit print). Quotas for printing is very powerful and effective mechanism for cost management on printing in your organization."
    I'll download the evaluation version and give it a whirl.

    Ah ok didn't get as far as reading that sounds cool then maybe you will do a writeup of your findings after trialing it.

    PCounter can do this, you create client codes, then it asks which department to bill to in a popup window.
