printer log file in windows xp professional

By srgmnab ·
Dear All,
I have a serious problem out here. One of my customer is
looking for how to view or store printer log file of the
printers connected locally on to a machine working on a
Windows 2003 network. The log file has to be maintained on
to the machine that the printer is connected to or on the
2003 server. The operating system running on the machine
is Windows XP Professional. All the printer is of HP
What exactally he is looking for how many and what prints,
the user is taking at what time.HP printer software does
not support log file.

hai thank you for the information.if you share printer in the network, will it be erased from the printer buffer if you change the existing ip address of the machine.

Share using NetBIOS

Share the printer, then create a local port on each other computer pointing to that printer: //hostcomputer/shared_printer.

Placing the printer directly on the network is even better. The printer will have its own IP address and you can create local ports pointing to that address.

Either option eliminates many of the problems of remote printing under Windows.
