Virtual Print Server
What is RPM Remote Print Manager?
RPM Remote Print Manager® (RPM) is our network print server product. It listens for print traffic on the LPD port 515 and port 9100, like many HP compatible printers.
RPM fits the Wikipedia definition of virtual printer yet it does quite a bit more.

RPM is implemented as a Windows print server. Its core capabilities include:
- managing your print workflow
- send print jobs to any Windows printer
- send print jobs to any printer on your network using core Windows print protocols, or LPR, or direct with port 9100
- archive print jobs to local folders, shared folders, or anywhere via FTP
- run any local application on your print job
- send your print job via email as an attachment or in the message body
RPM also provides extensive data editing, manipulation and translation.
Customize your print workflow
RPM is optimized to help you accomplish the print workflow you need. We also offer customization services where we develop additional software that works with RPM to accomplish what you need. We have been offering this service since 2010 and we have documented a number of the projects we have delivered for customers like you.
Windows version support
RPM 6.1 supports these versions of Windows: Vista, 7, Server 2008 (including R2), Windows 8 and 8.1, Server 2012 (including R2), and Windows 10. Support for Windows XP and Server 2003 has been dropped, so we no longer test new RPM versions on these older versions of Windows.
