Samba allows you to use a printer on a windows system from unix as well.

MySQL thanks

does anyone here know where I could find code to put in VB to print to a Unix Dazzle Print server?

What exactly is a "Dazzle" print server?

Is it lpd based? If so, you can setup a Win32 box to route print requestes from a server to the Unix side of things. Many stand alone printers use lpd and I have setup NT Servers that utilized the stand alone printers using the "lpr" protocol under NT.

Hope that helps.

P.S. It is generally considered polite to keep questions in the originating thread instead of branching off questions into new threads. That way, other forum visitors can see the entire thought process from initial problem to final solution.

It looked like he accidently started a second thread and then copied his response to the original thread. I have merged the threads.

Bug Thanks again

Sorry about branching off in the message board. I thought I deleted that thread. What your saying about using a Win32 box to print to the Unix side makes sense I am not sure if it is LPD based, actually I don't know what LPD is? Dazzle is the Unix Print Server we use. It handles all our print requests and we use perl scripts to spool off 6 to 12 at a time and so far the print server handles our printing exceptionally well, we never lose a print job through our Unix side and we print about a mile and a half of paper a year. But thats why I'm here. To automate the process and somehow I'm supposed to have perl scripts to move through text compare claim numbers and dollar amount on 2 text pads and print just the difference of claims and dollar amount rather than print everything and have lots of paper thrown out. But since our OS's are Windows 2000 we have to find ways to have windows make use of the superior Unix side

Could you please provide some more information on the Dazzle Print Server such as model number and manufacturer? My Google searches are pulling up random results and I don't see anything directly related to a "Dazzle Print Server".

So currently, print requests are going from the Win32 Side to the Dazzle Print server? Can you print anything to the Dazzle or is it app specific? If not app specific, that would seem to indicate that you could write a VB application that could print to the Dazzle as well.

The first place that I would look is in the printer defentions on the Win32 boxes. You can find that under Start | Settings | Printers. You might be able to determine how the printers is connected to the Dazzle.

Oh yeah, for the educational part of the show:

lpd is the daemon that handles printing under Unix.

Hopefully this is of some help.

MySQL thanks for all your help

it could be spelled differently like dazzel or dazle or dazzal print server. but I am having a heck of a time trying to write a script that when run it will print off a bunch of different text files. Unfortunately i have found out that we are definitely using windows 2000 computers in our data center but it will be great to still make use of our Unix system somehow. My main concern is to have windows 2000 be able to print to our Unix's side print server though. Thanks again for all your previous help!
