We are running an old system that uses digi ports connected to a unix system to support slave printing. I am trying to educate myself on the current system and I am looking for a modern alternative to replace this system that supports the same functions. I am sure it exists but I am not a digi or a unix expert.
Right now the primary functions are, our clients log into our UNIX database from a remote site, access it with read and write privileges, and have the option to print things in our office or locally at the remote site.
I am assuming the ports that unix uses are TCP ports but I dont know. Still looking for good documentation on this stuff.
Can you give me some good suggestions to look into?
