I have a USB printer on a 2008R2 server.
I want to be able to print to it from a remote 2008 server (accounting software in another office).
The software on the other end is quite fussy about changes - so I need to be able to print to a port directly by IP address.
I'm thinking LPD woudl work for that - I've never used IPP - but looks like a lot of overhead.
for either I'll have to open ports on the very basic firewall, so I want to keep them to a Min.
Looking for idea or options to get this done simple and easy.
