I've got an interesting problem to solve with the printer on our network - we have a network of Windows 7 clients connecting to a Windows Server 2008, and we use group policy to assign our colour printer (a RICOH Aficio MP C2050) to the clients, which works fine.
However, to try and save toner, what I would like to do is assign the same printer twice to the clients, once as it is, defaulting to colour, and another where it would default to black and white. I can't see a way to set printer settings in the group policy editor - does anyone know if this is possible?
If it can't be done in the group policy editor, then perhaps a login script could solve the problem?
I've also tried to find black-and-white only drivers for the printer but haven't been able to either. :-/
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Many thanks, Dave
