3.8 Printer server

FREESCO can act as a standalone printer server. In this mode FREESCO requires only a single network interface and NAT/firewall is disabled.

The printer server is based on the LPD protocol and can support up to two different parallel printers. USB printers are NOT supported due to the limitations of the 2.0 kernel. Serial printers are possible, but may require to install an additional command to set the serial line properties (baudrate, stop bits, etc).

The LPD server is quite simple, and does not support any form of queing, it's merely a TCP/IP → parallel port gateway. The LPD protocol is included by default in WinNT clients and better, for Win9x clients additional LPD software must be installed.
