Use of lpr printing in Windows 2008 InfoView.


Is there anyway of using lpr printing from the Print Settings or other method for sending report output to a printer from a scheduled report. The reason I ask is we are having issues with using the "Specify the printer" option with the printer specified directly. The BOBJ server has to have the print drivers installed on it for this to work. The scheduled jobs hang if the printer is does not print the job. The server may be trying to install the print driver or the printer queue may be hung for some reason. If we use lpr print it sends the printout to the queue and returns immediately no need to have the print driver installed on the bobj server.

I am interested in others solution to this problem.

Thanks for your help,
