Password protected print queue
We currently use Papercut 8 for auditing and controlling print use in school. However we have had a request for something which PaperCut doesn't seem to be able to do.
A teacher would like students to be able to print to a printer, but only be allowed to print once he has entered a pin-code on their screen. I appreciate PaperCut has the print-release station feature, but since he will be with them at their screens checking work he doesn't want to have to go back and forth to the release station which would be in a different room.
Does anyone know of any software that I could use in addition to PaperCut that would cause a user to be prompted for a pin code/password when they send a job to a particular print queue? Thanks

Call Christian Mahvi at papercut. He has taken on a few of my suggestions and 1 or 2 have come out in the bug fixes/patches. Always worth a try!

Wouldn't putting a release station next to the printer in question work?

Thanks all for your replies.
I have e-mailed PaperCut and was directed to the release station feature.

This bifrost - Trac doesn't help you but I thought it sounds cool enough to list it here.
