AutoPrint runs in the background on a local workstation or on a LAN server. On a dedicated computer one or more special file folders are assigned - depending on the number of printers to address through AutoPrint. A simple tool to batch print nearly any printable file.
Each folder is reserved as a file container for one of these printers, multiple folders for one singular printer are also possible. These folders may be defined as public and are so far accessible for by all operating systems within the local network. Some user-application now sends a file to print (e.g. dosapp.prn) into one or more of these folders.
AutoPrint will pick up this file and send it to the corresponding printer and delete it finally.
