Qestion from customer for Monitoring Printings at Work:
I am attempting to try your print job monitoring software. I have downloaded and installed it on a Windows 2003 Server with the print service enabled. How do I get the printers added to the monitoring. Thanks,

It contains these program files: 1. pr_server_setupx.x.exe -> Print Job Monitor console and server program. Install it to central computer to monitor all printer activities. 2. pr_agent_setupx.x.exe -> Print Job Monitor agent program. Install it to remote computers which connected to printer (s) directly.

Another Question About Print Job Monitoring Software:
I have no problem installing the trial software. My issue is I have nothing reporting. Nothing in the printer list, computer list, etc. I have installed on a Terminal Server. Do I need to use the agent and install on another computer.
