How can I print PRN and PDF files to client's printer on the Web Server Cloud?

Hi

We have a requirement for converting .prn files to pdf. We are investigating your Verypdf PCL converter tool. (http://www.verypdf.com/app/pcl-converter/try-and-buy.html ) . We have the following questions with respect to the tool.

The requirement is as follows:

- Give an ability to the user to preview the converted pdf file (with a suitable watermark) as many times as they want

- But allow them to print only once (without the watermark).

As seen from the attachment , it is a government certificate and hence they can have only one original. But they can preview it as many times as they want. If they print the preview, then it has to have a suitable watermark such as ' Draft Copy for Preview only' written across the pdf file so that it cannot be used as an original. The preview is used to confirm if the details are correct.

Then once the user confirms that the details are correct, they can

- Print the pdf without the watermark- if it's a pdf the displayed pdf they print can only be printed once and cannot be copied, saved,emailed etc. as its the original alternatively we do not require to display the pdf but send the file directly to the printer for printing. They cannot print it again, it can be printed only once.

Our software is a web based software. As it is a Web Application and is on a Web Server we require to send the PRN file to the Client Machine in case we want to send the file directly to the printer.

In addition to the above , our another requirement is to exclude the first page when printing the file, as seen in the attachment the first page is just a header line.

Can you please advise if your tool has the capability for the same. I noticed that you have an different type of PCL to PDF converters (command line, SDK etc.)

This will assist us in purchasing the software. Thanks for your assistance.

Regards.

Hi

You have not answered my query. Please read my original email correctly. I understand that the pdf file looks fine, but

1) I would like to have my own watermark on the pdf file. Can you please advise how to insert a watermark on the pdf file.

2) My second requirement is as follows: Our software is a web based software. as it is a Web Application and is on a Web Server we require to send the pdf file to the Client Machine for printing the file directly to the printer.

Can you please advise how to achieve both the above objectives. Appreciate a prompt reply as I am going to make a purchase decision soon.

Hi

We would like to NOT allow Printing, Saving, Saving as a copy and also emailing of the pdf file which is generated from the PCL file. Can you please advise if this is possible.Appreciate a prompt reply as I am going to make a purchase decision soon.

Please note that we have Web Application developed in ASP.NET 4.0 (C#) using MVC . This is hosted on Windows 2012 server and IIS 7.5.

Please let me know if there is any documentation or Samples to integrate it with ASP.NET Application.

And how can we directly Print the PDF without opening it . On a Click of PRINT Button on the Web Browser, we want the PRN to be converted to PDF and send to the Printer on the Client machine. Alternatively we send PRN directly to the Printer on the Client machine .

Is this possible and how? . Note this is not a client - server or Intranet Application.
Its a Web Application hosting on Web Server in data Cloud.

With encryption option in PDFStamp Command Line or PDFStamp SDK software, you can disable printing option, but there is no way to disable Saving and Saving As options, because Saving and Saving As options are controlled by Adobe Reader, but not PDF format itself, so you can't disable Saving and Saving As options from PDF format.

You can run "bin/install_for_x64.bat" to register PDFStampCom.exe first, you need run it with administrator right, you can also run following command line to register it by manual,

PDFStampCom.exe /regserver

after you registered the "PDFStampCom.exe" COM component into your system, you can call it from your C# code without any restrictions.

Yes, this is possible. Your client can open the PDF file in Free Online Document Viewer Web App, your client then click "Print" button on toolbar to print PDF file to his printer directly and without download it first,

We can also print the PDF file from JavaScript without open the PDF file first, this can be done easily by JavaScript code.
