On the server we have a scanner application, developed in .Net
When I run this program itself, there's no problem. The scanner application is able to send a report to a printer which I've locally installed. This works quite good.
However, this scanner application in reality will be called by a telnet server. We use Seattle Lab Telnet.
When I want to use exactly the same application through this server. In the configuration panel of the telnet server I can see that using the dos prompt and connecting through 'telnet localhost' I can see that it's connecting. Also that the scanner application is called from the telnet server.
But, what's not working is the printing itself.
I already went through some stuff and it looks like a problem with the local system account not finding the printer. The error code I get is 'no printer specified'
If I change the service of the telnet server to use the administrator account, I cannot log on with a telnet session.
Re: Printing crystal Reports through telnet server
Maybe some more information to add :
I just logged in as the user where I am supposed to log in to the telnet session, in order to print a report with crystal reports through the telnet server.
When I do this, I see following things :
1) My printers are defined. Also the default printer is correctly defined.
2) When I start the scanner application locally, and want to print out a report, this is working
3) When I open a telnet session, everything is working up to the point where it is supposed to start printing. At that point I get the error message : "Invalid printer specified"
I think it has something to do with the local system account, I can't get the telnet server to work using other credentials than that of the local system account.
Advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
