    Hi All,

    I support a Mac G5 computer lab in a campus setting. The lab is comprised of 30 stations and a G5 running OSX Server doing the back-end user authentication and file serving.

    At this point, all of the stations direct IP print to the several printers in the lab. We charge users by the page, and at this point the charging is handled manually.

    We have implemented a print quota program in our PC lab with much success (the software is called PaperCut). We have tried to implement the same in the computer lab, but without much luck.

    We are looking for a native-Mac solution. The software must be able to:
    * Utilize a pre-pay system, allowing users to store credits
    * Be able to support multiple printers
    * Authenticate users through our OSX server's accounts

    Any ideas? We've pretty much given up hope.

    I Know it's a few years late, but ....

    Check out PaperCut NG.

    Should be what you were looking for.
