    Submitted by Marcel de Roode: A cross-platform tool for monitoring of network printers and queues.

    It is now possible to manage print jobs on Windows and NetWare printers from a single, central, browsable location. Anyone who needs to watch many printers at once - helpdesks, printer operators, and administrators - will find Qcontrol a valuable asset for printer management.

    Pcontrol, which is included with Pcounter, has all the same features as Qcontrol plus extra Pcounter-related functionality.

    Network View displays all printers and queues on your network.

    Custom View displays only printers and queues you want to see.

    Other Features:

    • Viewing and modification of print job document properties.
    • Modification of Windows NT printer properties. (Yes, even on remote computers.)
    • Modification of Novell (NDPS/Bindery/NDS) queue properties: Users, Operators, and Print servers.
    • Create new printers/queues, rename/delete existing ones.
    • Standard print control operations: pause/resume/purge printers and queues, pause/resume/restart/delete print jobs.
    • Enhanced print control operations: cutting/copying/pasting/saving/viewing of print documents, moving jobs between printers and queues - even between Novell queues and Windows printers.
    • Drag and drop files onto printers/queues and drag documents from one printer/queue to another.
    • Launch printer configuration programs and/or connect to a printer's built-in web browser.
    • Realtime SNMP device status monitoring (requires Windows NT 4.0, 2000, 2003, or XP Professional).

    General information:

    • Qcontrol runs on all Windows versions.
    • Novell Client 32 highly recommended for NetWare support.
    • The free version of Qcontrol does not save Custom View settings between sessions, and does not startup in Custom View.
    • The paid version will remember all Custom View settings.
