Consider the following:

I have a CFMX7 application server running on a public/static ip address with the following TCP/IP settings


Now assume I have a remote user access the site ( They are on a different subnet with a different IP range.


Now assume that this remote user has a networked printer device on

Can I send raw data from the CFMX7 server to the printer device at the remote users request?

Hope this makes sense.

    Yes.  I would use CFX_RawSocket to send the raw request to that ip and port.
