How to send a report DIRECTLY to the printer (Linux App. Svr.)?

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

Here is the problem:
-- We have Windows clients / Linux App Server / Forms 10g R2.
-- Printers are attached to the Windows clients.
-- When we want to send DIRECTLY to the printer, we have to write data into a text file (using TEXT_IO) &
-- print the same using command HOST('lp -d '||<printer IP of logged in user>t||' '||<file name>,NO_SCREEN).
-- Our normal reports are displayed as PDFs.
Is there a way to directly send the PDF to the printer without having to re-write the report to a text file?? Then we can just use the PDF output and don't have to do any code changes (i.e. redo every report).

Use destype=printer.
The printer on the Windows client has to be defined as a network printer and be known on the Linux server.
Other options:
- use the orarrp utility
- if you call your Reports from Forms, you can use a Java bean

Thank you for the quick response. Can u please tell us how to make the printer "known" as a Linux server?? Will a normal network admin know how to do this or is it an Oracle developer's task?
