Re: remote printer configuration

Do you truly mean a remote printer? That is, a printer that is attached to a print server? Or do you mean a printer that is attached to the network?

A truly remote printer has very limited configuration options.

Re: remote printer configuration

as far as I know, none of the existing model scripts for network printers will meet the specifications you noted.

And "remote" printers, where the file is actually processed on a different system, don't either.

I'd suggest that you "pre-process" the file with somehthing like "pr" and then print it.

You could write a "wrapper" script for "lp" that would do what you want.
