I was wondering if there was any way to print a document to a network printer.  My condition is that the printer would be installed on a server, but not on the machine running my application.  Is there any way to print to a network printer in a situation like this??????????

Thanks,
kendal

Hi

You need to share the printer on the server, once you done that. You simple set the printername as the network address

\\computername\printersharename

and thats it.

Is there any possible way to do this and print to a network shared printer without the printer having to be installed on the local machine.  It appears that right now the printer has to be installed on the local machine for it to print to the network printer.

You could setup a request system on the server.

The request system would receive the request to print document abc to printer xyz.  Printer xyz is mapped on the server, but not on the client.

I have actually implemented a system like this where I work and it seems to work okay.
