Printing directly to a network printer via a socket connection

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I need to print directly to a printer via a socket connection either over LPD/LPR port or 9100. This is a star thermal printer.

The code i am writing it in is Flex and as3 but i dont think that should matter. A socket connection is the same in any language. I dont need anything based on any libraries because that will not help me.
