  • Hi Michael,

    Welcome to the MSDN Forum.

    How about this way?

    Monitor on a print queue, when it receive a print job, stop it to execute, and redirect the print job to another print queue?

    So how to monitor a print queue: http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/3313/Monitoring-a-Printer-Queue-from-VB-NET 

    How to monitor a printer queue from Visual Basic .NET

    When it receive a print job, use GetJob method to retrieve it, and Add it to another printqueue by AddJob.

    I hope this will be helpful.

    Best regards,
