in reply to Redirecting print output from WinNT to Unix

One option you have is to use the Redmon program that redirects a Windows printer port to a program (usually Ghostscript). You could then write a Perl program on the Windows box (that gets the Windows LPT output) and make it talk to the Perl program on the Unix box through a socket, and thus have control in both ends.

    Aha... this could be exactly what I need. It will also give me the option of writing a general-purpose server component that I could connect to from various clients, in case I need to do something similar elsewhere.

    Thanks, Brother t
