    PDF Print Server

    I'm investigating a PDF print server driver rather than deploying individual local printers. Requirements: must prompt the user for a destination, or be able to put it in their home drive; must be sharable; useful if it was free but not the end of the world.

    Any ideas/experiences?

    pdfcreator can put it into your users home folders providing that the user account it runs under which is I think system has access to those folders.
