Virtual printer Patent #: 5371837
AbstractA point-and-print capability is provided within a distributed environment. This point-and-print capability enables a user to select any of a number of available printers within the distributed environment via a user interface and then to have a document printed on the selected printer. The underlying loading of drivers and configuration steps are transparent to the user. This transparency is achieved in part by storing key printer resources, including printer drivers, on print servers that are distributed throughout the environment.
