Bonehead print server question
Posted on 2009-04-03
I'm embarassed I can't figure this out. I have three label printers that I want to hook up to my network. Ideally, I would attach some kind of network device (HP JetDirect Print Server?) to the network (running SBS2003 over Ethernet) and plug in my three label printers via USB cables. But I just can't figure it out. We print only occassionally to these printers, but I was hoping to NOT have them next to a stand alone computer. I don't want to buy three individual network devices (RJ-45 to a single USB 2.0 port) -- it seems inefficient. I also don't want to buy a $4,000 enterprise print server. I'm sure I'm missing something -- any ideas?
