    Print Charging Software

    hi All,

    I have Macs and PC's on my network and I am looking for a Print charging package that works on both platforms.
    any ideas?

    Thank you
    Mason

    We use Papercut NG here. Works great with our AD accounts from Win/OSX clients. ITS provide us with a licence/support that provides all software upgrades.

    We use PaperCut MF here, licensed via Annodata who get it via Selectec. Easy to use, quick to set up, has lots of advanced features, and integrates with most modern copiers.

    Papercut works sweet on Windows networks with Macs.

    Another vote for PaperCut. We've run NG and MF from about 2006/2007. It works really well and is simple to set up.

    Print Manager Plus is what we use, as long as you print from your macs via a windows based print server that has the server software seems all is well so it says in the handbook

    +1 Papercut. Used pcounter and print manager plus, Papercut is worlds apart.

    Pcounter now has a native mac installer for local tools if required, but otherwise simple to use and lots of options.

    Does Pcounter still install it's own port for each printer? I never got on with that

    Yes, but this has been simplified, and these are more for communication so registry based.

    The port monitor setup is simpler, with all monitors merged together. There is now unofficial support for GDI devices with generally good success.

    SNMP support is better, and you can use a mass migration tool to change ports for TCP/IP or LPR onto Pcounter ports.

    There is a rollback option, and it's only on rare occasions there will be an output queue required.

    Happy to help with any questions, or niggles that people may have.
