Windows print server

RPM Remote Print Manager® is our Windows print server product. What exactly does that mean?

What should you be able to do?

What can you expect from a Windows print server?

Print anywhere

You should be able to use all your Windows printers:

  • Print your documents to any supported Windows printer
  • With user credentials, print to any shared printer on your network
  • Print to several printers at once

Work with your data

You should be able to convert your data:

  • RPM fully supports Unicode so you can print anything to a supported printer
  • Use any Windows code page installed on your system
  • Fully support EBCDIC, undelimited text, SCS (native AS/400 format), and ASA

Print to file

You should be able to archive to disk:

  • Store jobs on any local or networked drive (with credentials)
  • Use job data, such as name, title, date/time, to name the file
  • You can print, archive, and email a job at the same time
  • PDF Is our most commonly used output format -- print jobs in, PDF out

Print to email

You should be able to email:

  • Convert print jobs to PDF, send as an attachment
  • Convert print jobs to HTML or plain text, send as the email message itself

Do the ultimate customization

You should be able to run a program:

  • Pass the print job to your program
  • Use job data on the command line, such as title, class, job name, etc.
  • RPM can run programs interactively and can monitor stalled programs

More ways to slice your data

  • convert from many formats to PDF
  • convert from one language to another
  • extract portions (see below)
  • prepend a file, append a file, before printing
  • “search and replace” -- alter the data

If you are cutting back on paper

  • you can convert your print jobs to PDF
  • store the PDF files on disk, put them in a hot folder
  • attach the PDF to an email and send it to a list of addresses

Extract your data

You can extract regions of data, perhaps print a limited range:

  • Our software can print at a start and end page
  • We can look for a phrase, and start printing there
  • We can look for another phrase, and stop printing there
  • We can skip a number of lines, then print
  • We can stop printing after a certain number of lines
