Block all print jobs outside iPrint.

Hi All

I work in a high school and we have Papercut doing the accounting for our printing. Our issue is that we have students bring in their own laptops and print directly to the printers via TCP/IP bypassing Papercut. Can anyone see a way we can configure the printers to accept jobs only from iPrint.

Many Thanks in advance.

The most effective solution would be to put the printers on a LAN of their own with a firewall limiting the IP addresses that can access the pritners.
Alternately, depending on the printer model, you can check if you can configure the pritner itself to limit the IP addresses from which they accept jobs. Some printers allow this to be configured.
