O&K Software announces release of Print Watch 4.2
OK Soft announced a tool to control, audit and optimize printing processes across a network. The technology detects the exact number of printed pages, preview of printed documents as images, setup of printing restrictions, reports that are available even in the browser – to fully control any printer in a network.
O&K Print Watch offers an authentication feature. Now you can set up a password for a user or a group of users to gain access to printers. When the authentication is enabled, the user will be required to enter a password before printing a document. A document will only be printed if the valid password is provided; otherwise it will be deleted from the queue without printing. The printing authentication option is expected to be useful in Internet cafes, libraries and other public places with public access to printers.
The Web server generates reports not only as tables, but also as different types of diagrams and graphs.
SMRKsoft accesses your computer files securely from any location
SMRKsoft has released My Remote Files v. 1.4, a Windows application that gives access to your files from any location, using an ordinary Web browser. With My Remote Files, there’s no need to purchase, install or learn to use software to access your files, change their names, compress them into Zip archives, or send them securely anywhere on the Internet. Now you can manage your files without an FTP server or FTP software, from anywhere in the world.
My Remote Files can compress your files into a Zip archive, for additional speed. The program has none of the arbitrary file-size constraints that make it so difficult to transfer large files across the Internet. Using My Remote Files, you control all of the file transfers directly.
My Remote Files solves data transmission bottlenecks that have caused problems with ordinary Internet file transfers. My Remote Files can be used to create a secure upload file server, with no need to set up a traditional server of any kind.
My Remote Files v. 1.4 runs under Windows 98/ME/NT4/2000/XP/Vista, costs US$25 for a licence that covers up to 20 accounts (or US$35 for a licence that covers more than 20 accounts), and may be purchased online at http://www.smrksoft.com/.
