Simultaneous printing

By PGreeff ·
Hi. I have a client who needs to print information to two printers at once for security reasons - the printout is occasionally being destroyed by its staff to hide evidence of their activity. The server and workstations all run Windows NT4.0. Can anybody show me a way to achieve this?

This isn't exactly what you are asking for, but maybe it will help. In the printer properties screen under the Scheduling tab, there is an option to keep copies of documents after printing. If you setup security correctly, users won't be able to change this and you could restrict them from removing the print jobs. The jobs can be reprinted and removed by the client at a later time for review.

Good luck.

The print server should be logging all printer activity and includes information such as user and file name. I wouldn't waste paper printing to a second location.

Sounds like this guy is not going to be very popular around the office. To be quite honest, in a situation like this, it would be feasible to get this guy a personal printer. Depending on the length of the reports, you can get a refurbished older model printer for $50. There are a lot of security measuers to protect print queues and print jobs. Unfortunately there is no security once that printout is on paper. Anyone can shred or throw it out. Unless you want to invest in a security system with cameras to see who is the culprit. If you are worried about people complaining that he has his own printer, then install it after hours and keep it under his desk.
