Shop employee wanting to print from his ipad, iphone to a wireless printer
Posted on 2013-01-29
I have a bit of a dilemma. We are a small company and our network is a physically wired via ethernet and we also have fiber optics to connect a separate building to our main office.
We also have a wireless router setup through our sonic wall that we allow clients to use when they come to inspect the products we are building for them. Our employees are not allowed to use the wireless.
I have had a request from a shop employee, who wants to print to a wireless printer. I told him we did not have wireless printer. He then proceed to inform me that he would be a printer and set it up himself. I told him not to do anything because I would have to discuss this issue with the President of the company.
I personally do not like for employees to just randomly start setting up their own "little network environment". Does anyone see any problems with allowing him to do this?
I feel that we will be opening up Pandora's box, if he is allowed to do this.
Open to advise.
