Question Printing from Linux to Windows Printer through puTTY (ssh)?


I am trying to do a rather wild thing. I want to print from a Windows XP laptop (over TCP/IP) to a Linux box (Fedora Core 2) which sends the print data through ssh (puTTY) to a Windows 2000 Print server.
The problem in detail: The laptop is not a member of our domain, so it cannot see the domain printers. I have a running Linux server which shall provide a printer queue in the form of 123.456.789.012/printer (or an equivalent if you have an idea how to do it). This printer should be sending its data through an ssh connection (preferably puTTY) to a Windows Network printer. I have to do this in such a complicated way because the Linux server is in a DMZ and is not "seeing" the Windows Network printer, since they are -of course- behind a firewall.

If anybody could give me some advice I will greatly appreciate it.

Of course, any other possibility is also very welcome.

Thanks in advance
