ftp printing from php to Windows server

Hi Guys,

We are developing a booking system for a client using PHP which has the function to be able to send documents to a printer via ftp.

Setting up an ftp directory on the clients Windows server to receive these documents is not a problem as this is pretty straight forward.

What I need to know is there a way to then get windows server to spool these documents to one of the printers on the Windows server.

Basically the system would be generating a lot of documents which they don't want to have to open each one individually in the browser and print this way as it would take to long.

Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.
