It sounds almost as if you want pass through printing. I haven't done this kind of setup on SCO in a long time.

On doing a web search I found this link that talks about SCO printing including pass through:

http://aplawrence.com/Unixart/printing.html

Also you don't say how the clients printers are setup. If they're network printers setup via CUPs you may be able to use lp to use the local worstations as print servers. There is likely discussion of print servers in one of the links at above site.

Sir
We are using dot matrix printers to all Clients and connecting to SCO Server via telnet. All the printers are configured as local printers and set as default, Please
