Print blocker for Win2K Pro

By les ·
I am looking for the ability to intercept data after it has been converted to standardized format for printing and transmited to print spooler on Win2K Pro.

The code would catch the data once it has been transmited to the print spooler but beforeit arrives.

Code would need to be written in C or C++

According to rules or permissions, the code would act as a proxy server/firewall and either block or allow the data to continue to print spooler

We are looking for someone that has code that would accomplish this, or some sugestion.

For example

1) User hits the PRINT key
2) Computer converts data into standardized format for printing
3) computer transmits data once standardized to print spooler
4) <<code/program>> catches data and reads headder.
4a) if APPROVED = Data is routed to print spooler for printing
4b) if DENIED = Data is blocked or not allowed to print

5) After APPROVAL the print data would be routed as instructed by computer originally

Is this something that is out there or if not then able to be created?
