Printing

ID #1069

Does the printer server support printing to a remote TCP/IP queue?

No, the stock LPD server is rather simple and does not support printing to remote queues over the network, but there's an add-on package called LPRng (LPR next generation, see http://www.lprng.com/ ) for both FREESCO 0.2.7 and 0.3.x.

This package contains a full blown LPD server and client and can print so almost any device (serial, parallel, network). See the LPRng Printing Cookbook for some 'recipes'. LPRng integrates also quite nicely with SAMBA, so you can share your print queues via SMB network (the Windoze protocol).
