We have a web app that needs to pick up documents from the network and send them to one of a number of network printers.
This works fine, when the app is running locally, but doesn't work when published to the web server because there are no printers installed on the server.
I've tried using UNC paths to the printer, e.g. @"\\PrintServer02\Printer01" but get the message:
Settings to access printer '\\PrintServer02\Printer01' are not valid.
Our operations people don't want to install printers or printer drivers on the web server, so that's not an option, unfortunately.
Is there any other way to do this?
Many thanks in advance,
