Identify the printer from the cloud

0

It is said to identify the output printer, the APP server should reside in the same LAN with the printer.

What if I put the Java applicaiton in the cloud? How can the Java application identify the printer?

Many thanks in advance.

You have to somehow define the printer at the operating system level so the Java Printing Service can access it.

Many thanks for your answer.

I think accessing a local printer for printing a jasperreport from the cloud is as difficult as directly accessing a local printer  from a web application backend.

Azure virtual network may be a solution. However it needs technical support and cost.

I would suggest hosting the Java applicaton within our LAN instead, accessing the Azure SQL database via JDBC for its report data.
