We are presently working on this kind of setup, using the freeware program
Ghostscript. I was originally thinking of using Adobe Acrobat to generate
files a branch office overseas could view and print but not modify, but we
decided to first try GS and its sister program, Ghostview. If you can print
to a a file, Ghostview will let you view it. You can find Ghostscript for
several different computer platforms at

Good luck,
