Error Unix to Windows 2000 printing over the internet

I need help printing to the Windows 2000 Pro environement from a Unix box, that the Windows 2000 system dials into via a ISP. We are still waiting for our T1 line to be installed but will need to know if that process will change when that is installed. I know that you can print from Windows 2000 Pro to a Unix box over the web, but what about a Unix box to a printer on the Windows 2000 Pro system.

Can anyone please please please help!

THANKS

I would be surprised in the standard out-of-the-box print spooler on W2K would be 'open enough' to allow a file from outside the MS domain to be managed by the W2K printing process.

Having said that, you might find a more cooperative printing daemon process for W2K 'out there on the net'.

My first suggestion is to try a search with appropriate keywords on http://downloads.cnet.com

Let us know what you find out there.....

Below are two examples:

http://download.cnet.com/downloads/0...st-7-1.1530030

http://download.cnet.com/downloads/0...lst-7-1.900308

There surely are more and a wider search will yield more results Smilie Don't forget to search www.google.com as well if you don't like anything you find on CNET.
