OP Cloud FAQ

OP runs as a Windows service when installed on Windows
and can be stopped paused using the Services control panel:
• Navigate to Service within your Control Panel -> Administrative Tools.
• Find the service named OP and right-click on it.
• Select the operation you want to perform (e.g., Stop/Start/Restart).

OP is designed to manage print jobs from workstations that are spooled to a Windows server or workstation. These printers are shared and connected via a USB or LPT cable to the print server or workstation. You can also effectively monitor a printer’s usage in a network. It may be that you have networked printers directly connected via an Ethernet cable. OP can only monitor a networked printer’s usage. OP scans the network using the SNMP protocol for the networked printers and checks a print counter. SNMP does not save information about printing (user, color, page size, etc.).

Your printer driver reports color prints but prints b/w pages. It seems that this is a feature of the printer driver. You can adjust your cost of printing by specifying one price for color and b/w printing.

You need to setup Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) for network printers. OP scans the network printers using the SNMP protocol.
