Is it possible to implement printing to a network printer from a browser?
I wonder is it possible to make a page to print to a network printer? The functionality is simple, went to the page, downloaded the file, select printer, razmechtalas. A network printer should not be connected, otherwise you can print and embedded print browser. If so you can implement, then by what means?
If you use the standard OS print, the printer will have to install. The OS is not able to print to the printer is unknown to her. The printer can be set print and delete.
Since the printer is shared, that no one bothers to implement printing at a low level. But you wouldn't want to do it for a long time, what is not needed and will have to support all the different available devices. From ready-similar solutions - the spooler of the OS :)

1) to Organize the download page to the server.
2) depending on the selected printer, the document is saved to a specific directory.
3) On the server to connect all the necessary printers.
4) scheduler every minute, for example, to send the task to the printer for all documents in the corresponding directory.
Do not forget to clean the directory after printing.
