How can I set up a LPR Print Queue on a Windows 2008 Server and redirect the queued reports to a file location on the network?


You need to install the LPDSVC in Windows to receive print jobs over lpr/lpd. Keep an eye on the event log for any error messages. You will probably need to enable passthrough on the printer to avoid mangling the print file.

You will need some extra software to send the print to a file. We have a solution at http://www.frogmorecs.com/printdistributor.
