is it possible to capture something about to print to a file with cups?

then i could write a script to send this file to a different location and print it there automated?

im attempting to print from two different locations without a need for VPN as its one printer dot-matrix hooked to a linux fedora core 5 pc and at the other end....

printing via dos program in windows.

hopefully this makes sense.

WINDOWS --> DOS --> PRINT FROM HERE ===> TO LINUX PC ON ANOTHER INTERNET LOCATION --> PRINT TO DOT MATRIX

I think you can print to the cups printer.

that printer being paused will left all jobs in /var/spool/printername

then you can create a script to look for any file and if so, scp to remote location. another script on remote can handle the printout to real printer.
