CUPS Question

This question relates to Debian and I guess any other Linux Distro.

Let's say I have two printers configured in CUPS PrinterX and PrinterY.

Is it possible to configure cups as such, that all documents printed to PrinterX from an application prints on PrinterY at all times.

Reason: (Not for discussion)
I use myxt.net and since Micro$oft bought it, you can only add one printer to the environment and some printers ( I want to print to) are not discovered by myxt.

AFAIN it's not possible, as CUPS is not supporting such stupid ideas directly. Perhaps some script can be used to implement such behavior - but even then - it would be just stupid: re-inventing the FAX technology in the era of e-mails ;)

Hmm, now if this is "Not for discussion" as the OP says, Why did they include it in
the post ?

That is because "microsoft" is not the owners of the domain
according to this:

http://whois.domaintools.com/myxt.net
Registrant Name: PERFECT PRIVACY, LLC
Registrant Organization:
Registrant Street: 12808 Gran Bay Pkwy West
Registrant City: Jacksonville


Probably not spam, but I think the thread belongs in "off topic". That is not something
for me to decided and do.
I do not see how any of this relates to Debian, the myxt thing seems to be related to another thing call os33,
and some printers ( I want to print to) are not discovered by myxt.

If this myxt or os33 can "discover" your printers, I think that might be more of a issue
the OP should take up with them, and their support, it is not a Debian related problem at all.
