Scripts for remote administration of printers

Posted by jl on November 13 2012th

It makes a reviewing logs found that our network had SNMP traffic that was denied by the different firewalls time. Looking at more detailed discovered that traffic was generated teams were discharged TCP / IP printer ports that no longer existed and that no one had removed. And as they were a few teams, we look for some way to do it remotely and in the documentation of Microsoft found that there were a number of scripts that enabled remote printer management.

These scripts are available from any computer, Windows XP and 2003 in the path% windir% / system32 and Windows 7 and 2008 in the% windir% system32 \ Printing_Admin_Scripts \ directory is-is and then you have the names of the 7 scripts and a short description of what you can do with them

Prncnfg.vbs - Sets or displays information about a printer.

Prndrvr.vbs - Adds, deletes, and lists printer drivers.

Prnjobs.vbs - Pauses, resumes, cancels, and lists print jobs.

Prnmngr.vbs - Adds, deletes, and lists printers or printer connections, in addition to setting and displaying the default printer.

prnport.vbs - Creates, deletes, and lists the ports TCP / IP standard printer, in addition to displaying and changing port configuration.

Prnqctl.vbs - Print a test page, pause or resume a printer, and clears a printer queue.

pubprn.vbs - Publish a printer in the directory service Active Directory.

To run you just have to go to a MSDOS session and run the command cscript followed the script name with options.

cscript Prnmngr.vbs -s -l equipo_pru

show all printers installed on the computer name equipo_pru

Not to extend this post but will post some examples in other post where we can see a practical use and we use very often.

Greetings.

The new Microsoft certifications - MCSE MCSA and returns

Posted by acts268 on 3rd September 2012

mcse

Microsoft is changing the format of the certificates once more. Changes announced yesterday entitled to Keynote, international conference and champagne!

The truth is that I do not like change, especially where it specifies that certifications expire 3 years.

Become famous acronyms MCSA and MCSE, but not with the original meaning, Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator and Microsoft Certified Systems Enginner. New acronyms are:

MCSA - Microsoft Certified Solution Associate MCSE - Microsoft Certified Solution Expert

The Microsoft Certified Master certification is also affected and becomes MCSM - Microsoft Certified Solutions Master.

Besides certifications are added for Developers on the same structure MCPD - Microsoft Certified Professional Developer. Megacrack read »
