Printing to large scale printer w/local IP


I am trying to find out if it is possible to put together a system that will act as a print server for a very large scale copier/printer. I'm probably not versed enough to give the proper details but, I'll try.

I work with a Xerox DocuTech 135 which already has a RedHat system connected for extended storage of digital jobs. I would like to replace the very old DOS based computer it has for sending digital jobs in to the copier.

I have seen that the copier does has a specific IP address and uses FTP for the extended storage. However, the DOS system uses proprietary Xerox software to serve the copier a file format called InterPress.

There are systems for sale that will serve jobs to this machine but, the lowest price tag is about $5,000. These systems are generally Sun Solaris based and have something to do with installing a LPD/LPR driver in the other computers of the network. If there was a Linux distro or package that would be able to interpret InterPress and use FTP to the copier's IP, I'd love to try to see if it would work.
