Local printing over telnet

Hi every one
My environment is like this :
sever operating system is SCO OSR 5.0.7
I am running my pc with RHEL5.4 OS and connecting to server via telnet.
a dotmatrix printer is attached to my pc and I want get printing from my pc-printer during telnet. Will pass through printing works in this environment. If yes, what to do at server side i.e at SCO SERVER, what to do at my pc.

Please help me,

Thanks in advance.

No, it won't work. You will have to make your local printer a network printer that the SCO box can see remotely. That means RH on your side will have to play print server.

The simplest solution is to put the printer on the network by itself. Then either box can print to it. Many printers come network ready. What desktop printer do you have?
