Print on a Network Printer which is not available to System on which the code runs

14 New Member
i am working on a project (windows service using VB.Net and C#) which gets the check details and check images from the database and prints the check to a printer.

Printer name is configured in a XML file.

Printer names are names which are available to the system on which the service is running.

Printers used are network printers and are added using Printers and Faxes -> Add a printer.

To validate the printer I am using the following code below:

_printDocument. PrinterSettings .PrinterName = printerName

if(_printDocume nt.PrinterSetti ngs.IsValid)

_printDocument. Print()

All the above things works fine.

Now the new requirement is that checks need to be printed on a network printer that is not added to the system or

not available to the system on which the service is running,but the printer is available in the network.

I did research on the internet ,but failed to get any information on this new requirement.

My question is

First Option:

Is it possible to print on a network printer which is not added to the system on which the service runs.

using .Net or Win32API?

Second Option:

I created a .prn file and tried to copy to the UNC path of the network printer but that does not work.Is there any location

where we can programmaticall y copy .prn files and the printer picks it from there?

Thanking you in advance

Every 10 seconds I need to search a SQL table for orders to print. The orders are created through WebForms on ASP.NET clients. The orders should not print until 10 minutes before they are due. The network printer will be available from the server running IIS and SQL Server 2000. If this were a Windows Forms application, then I would create a system timer in Form1.Load(). How is this done in an ASP.NET application?
