Limiting Access to Printer

By yasir.rafiq ·
I have a Printer over the LAN, and my sub ordinats at times send huge files for printing, and I have told them to avoid this as we soon run out of tonner, Now when I am in some meeting they do so, I woul like to do any of the following:

Limit print pages to only 2 pages for specific user, 3 for some one I allow etc.
Also printer will not print file grater than 500Kb.

Not easily done

You will need to purchase a document management system that can intercept the documents and ration printing and those can run into the millions of dollars.

It would be easier to simply remove their access rights to the printer though whichever OS your network is running on.

So, this means every Time I have to give and remove access rights, by the way I am using WinXP as OS.
