VB SCript for printer pin configuration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have this requirement where i need to create a vb or powershell script for printer pin. So its like when user asks for a print a pop will come which will ask for pin. The user then can go to printer and enter the pin and take the print. I want to know is something like this is possible?

    I know we can add and remove printers through scripts but is it possible to configure pin also?

  • What everyone asking this question fails to see is that the "Confidential Print" PIN is designed as a security measure.  It makes no sense to store the PIN and automate its entry.  That defeats the purpose of the PIN.

    I were to buy a secure printer like a Xerox and it allowed someone to do this I would want my money back.
