Chuck, you are right. You have no idea how simple it can be with a web 
connection now, even for printer sessions.  For example, if you have 
Client Access Express on your home PC and set up a session configured to 
63.167.147.10  you will have a green screen sign on in a jiffy.  Making a 
printer session is as easy.

Dan,

Have you thought about doing this over the internet ?

Don't ask ME how but I know folks on this list have talked about this in 
the past.
This would SURE be the cheapest way to do it but not sure what you would 
get into
with the label printing part.
