Direct printing of PDF

Hi all.

I am currently researching on how to issue a direct print of a

PDF document to a local printer without displaying it in the

browser.

So far I managed it to attach the PDF XSTRING to the

response and the browser aks whether to save or to open the

PDF docment. I added a new mime type to the local machine

and connected it with a batch that starts the adobe reader

with print parameters.

This works, but the user is still able to save the file and so on.

Maybe someone knows how to configure the local machin to

supress the download dialog and directly execute the

document so the printer dialog opens automazically.

Thanks in davcnae,

Sascha

    ... or any other idea on how set the number of allowed printouts of a PDF document or how to print it directly?

    Cheers,
