Making Linux look like an HP JetDirect Card
Posted on 2004-09-26
Short - I want to make a printer share on a linux box Fedora2 (i'm willing to use diffrent os) work like an HP JetDirect card does. In other words I want to windows client to send print jobs to an IP address. I think HP JetDirect cards use port 9100
Long story: My corp accounting dept sends print jobs to my office printer using the HP's JetDIrect cards IP address. We have many jobs that are 500+ pages that just get filled away. I would like to take these print jobs and just save them to a pdf file. I've played and setup a linux box to take a postscript file and convert it to pdf. The box sending the print jobs I think is a SCO unix box, but getting changes to that box is not an option.
Short Summery: Take a TCP/IP print job ment for a HPLaserJet JetDIrect card and convert it to a pdf and drop it off in a share.
So guys/gals can this be done?
