Is a print server really worth it in a home environment
Posted on 2006-04-09
I have Windows XP home and pro. I have a couple of printers I want to share in a 4 system wireless network.
One of the printers is a multi purpose printer that is almost impossible to configure using a Print Server. So, just to make things simple, cant I just do a share printer on the network and let all systems access it. Then, I can do the scan copies printer on the multipurpose printer (that were not available when it was behind a print server)
The printing is not sensitive in nature. Rather, it is mostly my kids and their school stuff. I put them behind a print server orginally because my cousin said they were more secure behind the PS (but then that blew away the multi function capibilities).
