Install the Direct Print Monitor

This page applies to:

If your organization does not have a dedicated print server at one or more site, you should consider setting up Direct Printing. Direct Printing allows you to track and report on local printing that is sent directly from a computer to a printer, without a print server.

Each computer that prints directly to a printer needs the following components:

  • a print queue that sends jobs directly to a printer rather than to a print server queue. The print queue can use either the IP address or hostname of the printer.

  • a small monitoring component, known as a Direct Print Monitor. This monitoring component reports back to the Application Server.

The way in which you install Direct Printing depends on your operating system. For more information see:
