Sorry this has take so long. Not much to report, I'm afraid.

My original question:

We have a small network of Sun 3s and Sparcs connected to two printers: a
SparcPrinter running NewsPrint, and a QMS 810. I'd like to set up
accounting for both printers, so that I can get a list of users and #pages
printed. Are there any free/share/pay-ware programs that can take care of
this easily?

Thanks, Mark. We have been thinking of getting the new version of
NewsPrint, but since this entails an OS upgrade, will sit back and
evaluate some more.
