Re: Bizhub c450 - setting account tracking for color only
When setting up this option it is one of the variables that can be changed.
I reccomend using the Webportal.
Type the IP address of the MFP and then when the page is displayed, click log out and then log back in as administrator.
You will see the account tract and authification settings there.
This is far easier than navigating through the panel.

We have been having this problem and I am trying to find an easy way to push the fix out to all users automatically. What I have found is that the driver automatically inserts the Windows network login name as the user name under "Authentication/Account Track" insteead of the "Public" user. Even though I have it set to Public User in the driver on the print server (and defaulted to Grayscale), It has to be manually set for each user on their PC's driver. More often than not, it also has to be set in the Printing Preferences in the application the user is trying to print from (Ex. MS Word, Acobat Reader, etc.).
Yes. Easy to do, just go into the admin mode under utilities. Turn on Copy Track and then setup your accounts. You can restrict color, number of copies etc. This is also in your operators manual.
The default admin password is 12345678
you can use either the User Authentication or Account Track. With authentication you can give public access to BW and require a password for colour. With Account Track you can create users and limt acees, but you CANNOT give public access. ALL users would required to have a code. This is controlled for copy, scan and print functions.
The copy track function only keeps track of how many B&W/Color copies/prints are made per user account. There is no record kept on the machine of actual print copy content. That is not to say they might have some other device or software program that COULD give them that information.
this will happen if account track or authentication is enabled on the machine to enter a password for the driver go to the driver properties and click on printing preferences then the user authentication/account track button and you can enter your password there it would be the same password that you enter to make a copy
go to the printers and faxes page and in the driver properties click on printing preferences click on authentcation/account track and you should be able to enter you name and password from there unless you may have to be logged on as the administrator on your computer to make these changes
You will need to enter the admin mode, User Authenication/Account track & select either user authentication settings or account track settings depending on which you have setup ( you can check this by going into the general settings in user auth/account track ).
Once in your chosen method select the user/s you wish to restrict and select edit.
Select output permissions and set colour to restrict and ok.
Do the same for each person you wish to restrict.
Once done you will need to go into the 'Print Without Authentication' button and select Restrict.
When you have done this you will need to add the users information and passwords into the print driver for the C300 for each users pc.
You do this by going into start, settings, printers, select the C300 & right click, select properties, go into printing preferences & select 'Authentication/Account track', enter the user name & password into the relevent boxes (either account track or user auth depending on what you have setup) and then hit ok & apply.
Do this for ALL USERS.
The settings should now be saved permanently and if the user selects colour and they are restricted it will not let them print.
when you create account codes they are assigned a number, are you sure you are not starting at the end? It should only erase the previous information if you turn account track on then off. email@example.com
