      short answer:
      you can’t.
      (well, you can – see below) as – simplistically speaking – websites cannot access hardware and make it do things.
      just imagine one were to be able to write script of some sort that accesses your/any printer from a webpage or something and forces it to print 100000000 pages automatically without you being able to do anything about it.

      long answer:
      bearing the above in mind (again, somewhat simplified), it is – essentially – the printer that has to be able to control what does and what does not get printed automatically.

      3 options spring to mind here.

      a) using a cloudprint service:
      your printer is registered to a cloudprint service and picks up and prints whatever is sent to that service

      b) your printer is enabled to check a dedicated email account and prints whatever arrives at that account

      c) your printer can listen to some script/command.
      gprs printers – for example – usually have an API that one can use to let it do things
      (probably to be used in conjunction with this
      as there is no generic/standard API that would work for all gprs printers it will be something you would have to script yourself

      if anyone knows of another solution – or i am missing things – let me know and i’ll happily add/amend this here
