I was wondering whether it makes a difference in printing speed whether the printer is set up on the local server, or just set up as an IP on the network. In particular, I was thinking about printing permissions. If i set the printer up on the server, i can assign permissions to the global group on the printer. However, if we set up the printer as a local printer on each workstation, permissions can be assigned there but it is much harder maintain, and for the computer to verify permissions, and they may go out to a domain controller to check permissions. Would one way be any faster than the other?
