Restrict color printing

The following table shows various tools that can be used to control color-printing access.
Color access control tools
Tool
Description
HP Embedded Web Server
The HP Embedded Web Server (HP EWS) is a Web-browser-based utility that provides an interface to the product that you can use to change product settings, including color access control settings. No special software needs to be installed or configured. It allows you to set color printing restrictions and view a log of color printing use. The HP EWS is designed for one‑to‑one product configuration monitoring and management.
HP Web Jetadmin
The HP Web Jetadmin provides an interface to the product through a Web browser on single network-administration servers. Use HP Web Jetadmin to manage HP Jetdirect-connected products within an intranet.
For more information, see the following Web site:
HP Managed Printing Administration (HP MPA)
HP MPA provides a means for controlling color printing through Managed Print Policies (MPPs) and Managed Printer Lists (MPLs).
For more information, see the following Web site:
HP UPD Active Directory Group Policy
Color printing access can be controlled through Active Directory Group Policy and the HP UPD Active Directory Administrative template within your Active Directory infrastructure.
Color usage job log
The color usage job log shows color and monochrome print job statistics for a product.
Product control panel
Use the product control panel to restrict color use in network-connected products.
For more information, see the following procedure.
To restrict color-printing access to a network-connected HP LaserJet Enterprise 500 color M551 from the product control panel, follow these steps:
  1. Press the Home button to return to the main screen, if needed.
  2. Press the up arrow or the down arrow to scroll to Administration, and then press the OK button.
  3. Press the up arrow or the down arrow to scroll to General Settings, and then press the OK button.
  4. Press the up arrow or the down arrow to scroll to Restrict Color, and then press the OK button.
  5. Press the up arrow or the down arrow to scroll to one of the following options, and then press the desired option:
    • Enable Color. This is the default setting. Use of color-printing features is unrestricted.
    • Disable Color. This setting denies the use of color-printing features to all users.
    • Color if Allowed. Network administrators can use this setting to allow color-printing to certain users and restrict it for other users. User privileges can be set using HP EWS. For more information, see the EWS online help.
