    As does PCounter, OSX uses a local client which is FOC.

    We're using Papercut as of last week. Really impressive bit of software and support is fab! They go above and beyond to help you tweak things to work best for your environment.

    Hi David_PCN,

    Have you got a link for the Mac client for Pcounter? I've had a look on altmans website but with no luck.

    Cheers

    From random document on their site:

    Pcounter for Windows can be configured to log, track, and control shared printer access for Macintosh print clients running OS9 and OSX 10.x. This document provides instructions to set up Pcounter for Windows to work with Macintosh computers

    There's no client as such, I don't think, it's all done through a web page. This is explained in the user guide I believe.

    It's included in the latest release under a folder called client....

    Also, It's used to require the Pro version, now it's included as standard.

    We use papercut here too, but I'd like to know how you logisticvally manage the print credit; do youy charge the students and staff ex amnount?

    We've been using for alsmot a year now and we haven't started charging the students yet, and I am now asked to do so.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    What level of education are you involved in? Secondary/College/Uni? Visitors or part time courses?

    Print Credits for students can be updated automatically or manually based on a per user, group or OU basis.
    Most solutions have multiple payment methods - over the counter, wall mounted payment station, card payment, web based payments....

    It very much depends on when you want to make them pay:
    For all Jobs?
    For anything over a set cost per week?
    For colour jobs only?
    For copying only?

    For example, you could give them a free quote of 1 per week, which at 5p per mono side allows 20 sheets a week. This free quota did not then apply to copying or colour devices which use a real balance for which they've paid for and does not get automatically updated. If they use all 20 sheets of mono, they can then use the real balance for mono jobs also.

    for those wanting to give it a whirl the papercut lads released 11.3 this morning with a funky SNMP checking feature.
