I have an ASP.NET application where user is Anonymous when he connects to website. Also I have a printing server inside network. I want to let this user to print to the network printer.
In order to print I have to use File.Copy command. When I do this I get "Access denied". So I tried to impersonate the user with credentials of user that is inside domain and has the rights to print to that specific printer.
The problem is this user has to be Administrator, and I cannot let him be the Administrator. When this user is not Administrator then the printing is not working ("Access denied").
I tried to use Network Credentials but I don't know how to set credentials to command File.Copy. This command doesn't have any extensions or overloading for credentials.
In our solution we have a crystal report displayed on screen, we also have a copy of the report saved in temp file on the server.
We have tried using the Crystal Report ActiveX for printing and it works fine if the user has the proper access rights to their PC but in the environment it will be deployed there is no guarentee this would be the case.
I'm looking for a method (that doesnt involve ActiveX) of printing a file saved on the server (example a PDF file) to the users local printer.
The printer could be a shared printer on the network or a printer connected to their PC.
I have designed a report for printing cards and am able to print it on my local machine but when i upload on the server, i can preview the report but when i click print through a pdf its coming out blank.
I am using third party component for printing purposes (Combit list and label). There is dll which has function for printing. (means it suppresses the print dialgue box and have information embedded in a file about the printer location). The printer is shared printer and attached to machine which is different from the development machine. Now the printing from this printer works fine during debugging. But when I publish the pages in virtual directory and then executing the application does not print. (pages are also published on the development machine).
There is a hyperlink to a local file...for instance....C:/text.txt. This is not possible, because ASP.net does not allow links to local files. But, links to files on network drives such as W:/test.txt are working ok. how does the browser know which drive letter is local,and which is networked? How does it know that C: is local or D: is local etc, and that W: is a network drive?
