Management Issues

By Davis College ·
I run a computer lab at a college. I try to teach the students to save web pages in a document for their research to save a lot of typing and wasted paper.
They don't listen.
So I want to shut off the print option in IE and Netscape so they will be forced to copy and save instead of printing 100's of pages of junk.
I can not find any information on that, so has anyone done this or know of how to to it?

PBC,

Is your environment on a LAN? Are your printers shared out on the LAN or are they attached to each workstation separately? I am thinking of restricting the user account or group in the security section the printer in NT.

Let me know if you use NT4.0

The workstations all run win95 or 98. The server is on NT 4.0, and the printer has it's own network card. I looked through the policy editor and came up with nothing reqarding print restrictions in relation to program.

In http://www.jsiinc.com/tip1900/rh1976.htm you have all the answers for your requests in IE. I do not know if there is something similar for Netscape, but here you have the solution to the 50% of your problem.

This works if all stations run NT. Only the server is NT the workstations are 95 and 98.
