PDF creation on the server

Post by FGH » Fri, 09 Jul 2004 16:17:14


Having a small network of about 15 PCs we would like to move the creation of
the PDF on the server instead of using local licenses of Adobe Acrobat, in
order to allow all the users the creation of PDF files from Word,
PowerPoint, Excel, and other Windows applications (through a generic printer
like the PDFWriter) Can you please give me the name of products that will
allow me to do this? We are looking for a very simple system, that will
allow us to centralize this task.
Thank you for your support!

How about PDFCreator?

It is open source and therefore freely available. It works in exactly the
same way as the adobe printer driver for windows and can therefore be
installed and then shared over a network.

you can download it from: http://www.yqcomputer.com/

make sure you get the GNU Ghostscript one since the other version (AFPL) has
a slightly *** licences that prevents its legal use in any commercial
