  • If the printer supports SNMP then you could create your own SNMP server to monitor printer events.  Other than that, I think you would need a central print server running a print controller application.  Both could be fairly significant projects, but the SNMP server would probably be the easier of the two.  Also note that a web search may provide a number of existing SNMP printer monitors.
