Thanks Peacedog, I've got my network printer working, but know my problem is the following:

I need the make a print server, but need to take control of the print jobs of my clients. I will decide what print jobs will pass to the printer and which to decline. Do you have any idea how to do this?

Any help will be appreciated!!!

Thanks!!!!

What are your conditions for the print jobs? Color, print size, etc?

No restrictions for the user, just to be able to deny or accept print jobs from the user!! in other words i need to see the queu that contains all the print jobs an permit me to erase a print job.

Couldn't you just have security settings on each printer?

It would be way to difficult to watch a queue. I'd suggest looking into setting permission on each printer.
