Printer Accounting?

Anyone successfully using a print server that supports print accounting? Preferably with user authentication or support of some kind?

Basically, my network has 500 or so computers, representing Linux, OSX, OS9, and Windows. I'm tired of not knowing where print jobs are coming from, especially when someone prints 8,000 copies of Pokemon codes.

I can't get PyKota to work for beans, so unless you have a magic key there -- I'm looking for something else.

We have pykota running. It handles all the various accounting models we require. The author is is very helpful, whenever we hit a problem.

Printingworks is another solution which I believe it uses pykota as the backend system. Support is readily available.

all the best.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
