Papercut - Printers web page
Small thing bothering me... I have two servers - one is acting as a Papercut "Primary", the other as a "Secondary". The primary has a web page which lists available printers, but only those installed on the primary. It would be nice to have the printers from the secondary listed also. Is it possible? Can't find any help on Papercut's site...

Did you modify the config file on the secondary server to point to your papercut main server? Then stop and start the service on the secondry server and voila!

I don't think I was very clear in the OP
Papercut has a web page for any user to view printers and connect to them if they wish, usually accessed via "http://<papercut_server_name>/printers". Now I can see all printers installed on the "primary", but none from the "secondary".

The web server is part of the Papercut application. So either Papercut knows about the printers or it doesn't. Are you sure your Secondary server is pointing at the Primary server?

From what I understand when I installed it here, the secondary print server is more for installing on clients that have local printers attached so they can still be charged accordingly and as such doesn't have all of the features of the main page as most of it can be done locally anyway.
What's the purpose of the second print server, is it just to spread the load?

Secondary is Server 2003 - for those printers that don't work well with 2008 (there are a few old HP's without drivers yet).
The secondary is pointing at the primary - the printer showed up on Papercut's admin pages, just doesn't show on the page users can view. Not a big deal, just an annoyance...
