How to do Printing Acct. w/ Remote Printers thru gator/shiva boxes?

Post by Robert T. McL » Sat, 09 Sep 1995 04:00:00

We have a gator box which acts as a remote machine and has remote
printers.  The BSD based lpd does not do printing accounting for any
printer which is not local.  Or at least I can't get it to do it.
Our gator box will not do any printing accounting.

Does anyone have a simple way to capture the accounting information?

BTW.  This is will not be used to charge for printing, but really to
cut down on abusing our poor little laserwriters.

1. Problem with Remote Printing Thru Print Servers

I have a problem with UW7 Can you please address this on the forum on my
behalf for the time being. I shall be obliged.

Problem is as under:

I have installed a system with UW7 (7.1.0) and want to get some
printing on
the network using the Print Servers from D-Link (DP-100, DP-300) and/or
Balylan's Printer Servers. These P.Servers works very fine with SCO
OpenServer 5 but a little bit problem in the UW7 is that (with 2 or 3
printers installed) If I send some requests to one printer it is OK but
the requests are sent to more that 1 printer, only one printer prints
the others are idle until the first one ends the job and I want all the
printers working in the same time. Can you please advise or send my
to the forum ? Shall be grateful.

I also tried to find the Printcap file but failed.
