[+Tracking printing to a photocopier+]

PaperCut can track printing to photocopiers just like a regular printer.  Printing is simply intercepted at the copier's print queue, before it reaches the copier itself.  In essence it works the same as a [[NetworkPrinters | network printer]].


[+Tracking walk-up copying+]

Tracking walk-up copying is a bit more involved.  It is generally done using one of two possible methods:

'''1. Using the photocopier's inbuilt features'''
-> Many photocopiers come with features for reporting and access control.  For example, [=PINs=] can be used to restrict access to the copier, and copying data might be available through the copier's web interface.

-> It is then simply a matter of keeping the [=PINs=] and usage costs in sync with PaperCut.

'''2. Using an external hardware terminal'''
-> Sometimes it is necessary to have an automated print management solution.  In these cases, external hardware can be purchased to link the copier up with PaperCut.  Access to the copier can then be controlled using cards or [=PINs=], and all copying is automatically registered against the appropriate user and/or account in PaperCut.

-> In this way walk-up copying can be managed just like regular printing from within PaperCut.
