I have a client who uses logmein to connect to a Windows workstation and from there she uses Medical Manager client software to logon to a UNIX database server. I know that logmein will easily support printing directly from the Windows machine, but how would she print from the UNIX server to her remote printer.

When you say the client software logs in to a UNIX database server, what are the details of this?  What is the target information that needs to be printed?  Is it a document or report of some sort?  You may be best served pulling the file back to the windows machine and printing it from there depending on your network and server configuration.

Alternatively, the remote windows printer can potentially be added to the printers on the UNIX server and files to be printed can be sent to it directly using the lpr command.

She need to print reports. How would you suggest adding the printer or having the report print to a file? It's been a while but I think the client software is basically just a pretty Windows GUI for a terminal connection to the server.

Does the client software provide any level of print functionality?  If so what options does it present?

The client has opted to print to file on the local windows workstation and then print that file remotely through logmein. thanks for the help.
