Qcontrol - Manage network print queues and jobs

It is now possible to manage print jobs on Windows and NetWare printers from a single, central, browsable location. Anyone who needs to watch many printers at once - helpdesks, printer operators, and administrators - will find Qcontrol a valuable asset for printer management.

Pcontrol, which is included with Pcounter, has all the same features as Qcontrol plus extra Pcounter-related functionality.

Other Features 

  • Viewing and modification of print job document properties.
  • Modification of Windows printer properties. (Yes, even on remote computers.)
  • Modification of Novell (NDPS/Bindery/NDS) queue properties: Users, Operators, and Print servers.
  • Create new printers/queues, rename/delete existing ones.
  • Standard print control operations: pause/resume/purge printers and queues, pause/resume/restart/delete print jobs.
  • Enhanced print control operations: cutting/copying/pasting/saving/viewing of print documents, moving jobs between printers and queues - even between Novell queues and Windows printers.
  • Drag and drop files onto printers/queues and drag documents from one printer/queue to another.
  • Launch printer configuration programs and/or connect to a printer's built-in web browser.
  • Realtime SNMP device status monitoring.

General information 

  • Qcontrol runs on all Windows versions.
  • Novell Client 32 required for NetWare support.
