PrintMIBUK - LocalMPS

LocalMPS extends the scanning functionality of the MPS Client and MPS KEY to include printers connected directly to computers via parallel, USB or even serial ports. LocalMPS is a small program which can be installed on any Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista computer. It will constantly monitor printer activity and pass that information on to the MPS Client or Key enabling you to complete your printing environment profile.

Like all PrintMIBUK products, LocalMPS is designed to be simple to use. Installation can be accomplished in a few seconds, and for basic use no configuration is necessary beyond specifying which printer(s) should be monitored.

Once installed, LocalMPS simply waits in the Windows system tray watching for documents being sent to the specified printers. When a document is detected LocalMPS notes the number of pages printed, and makes that data available to a MSP Client or Key scan via Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

Running LocalMPS in the basic mode will provide the following information:

  • IP Address of the computer to which the printer is connected
  • Model of the printer
  • Windows Name of the printer
  • Pages printed since LocalMPS was installed

LocalMPS also can be configured to pass on the following information which may have to be entered manually the first time the program is run:

  • Serial Number
  • Starting page count (which will be incremented automatically)
  • Location
  • Asset Tag
  • Under Contract

LocalMPS is free, and works with all SNMP compliant management consoles, though additional functionality is provided when used in tandem with the MPS Client and MPS Key.
