Easy printing on windows clients 12 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 0
It is fairly easy to make it possible to print to any printer connected (and configured) on a windows machine, withou the need for any configuration on the Linux server.

If gsprint.exe (including ghostscript) is included in the installation package of the goglobal native client for windows, it is very easy to adapt golpr in such a way that a ps or pdf is sent to the client, and the locally installed driver is used, by printing the file locally using gsprint. This makes it possible to print without ANY configuration on the server on any installed printer connected to the local Windows machine, effictively enabling winprinters directly.

I myself have used this concept in an ASP environment, using not golpr, but gofile -x. The only drawback is currently that the user has to install 2 packages: the goglobal client, and the gsprint module. If it is included in goglobal, the rought edges can be smoothed.
