Question client printer redirection to terminal server (client server connection is RS232)

Dear sir,

I am using the minicom to open the remote session with rs232 connection with settings below
line /dev/ttyS1
Baud rate 9600
stop bit 1
parity none

i am successfully opening the session on my ubutnu 11.10 with minicom. Now i wanted to take print of the document placed on remote terminal server on my local printer.
i googled about it and got to know about resource redirection that is using local resource while session is ON. but as i am using the serial connection so i cant use the most suggested utility called "rdesktop" which is ip based connection utility which gives us printer redirection

Please give me suggestions how can i use local printer for printing, how to redirect printer in above case to get local printer available to terminal server.

client is ubuntu 11.10
connection utility Minicom (serially)

server is also ubuntu 11.10
but i have no privillage to make any changes there

Thanks & Regards

I do not know of a terminal program with this capability. Some have a printer pass through function but this is for raw text. You could always download the file to print.


linux client, printing, serial console
