    Papercut print limiter. Does it divert traffic?

    Hi,

    We are based over five sites and each site has a print server to stop traffic going over the WAN.

    If we installed paper cut on our main server and then installed the secondary server version on the other sites, does it transfer the print job from site A to site B and then site A again or does it just send details on how many pages the user is trying to print?

    Many thanks,

    Dan

    As far as I know, the print jobs remain entirely in the print queue for the printer that it is sent to, so nothing gets transferred between servers other than database backend info.

    Hi

    Could you not put the papercut client machine on the secondry print servers and this will forward the prints to the main one.

    Papercut just transmits transaction information, not the job itself.
