Printer Monitoring

During this check, the program monitors the state of locally-connected printers (these can be networked printers configured for printing via network but installed as a local printer on the system). The printer monitoring check allows you to find out whether the networked printer is ready before sending documents for printing to it. This check can be useful when users treat claims to a system administrator that the remote printing does not work. The administrator can check the printer remotely, watch the printer's current state, and take some measures if necessary.

Warning! This check operates via WMI (as the previous WMI check). Remote WMI execution can fail with default Windows security settings. Your system should work with the classic access model (or normal, not guest) and you need admin rights on a remote PC to gather information from it via WMI.

 

Requirements: Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008/7/8.1/2012/10 supported.
