I have a question regarding if I need to purchase a local server or not for my office. The server will mainly be used as a print server.
At the moment all of our users (7 users) have a personal local printer. However, management wants all of the users to now only use the new Multi-Functional Printer from HP that we recently purchased for their print jobs. So we will be getting rid of all of the users personal local printers.
My office is currently located in the Cayman Island's. Our head office is in Paris, France. All of our data servers are in Paris, we connect to them on a secure wired connection (10 MB tunnel).
My question is, if I were to just setup the MFP printer on one or our servers in Paris, would the print job from the user in Cayman eat up the bandwidth and cause a huge delay to print a document since the job would go over the secure line to Paris and back to the MFP printer in Cayman?
