In a previous thread, it was mentioned to forget about AppleShare IP... at least for controling the internet access.
Now that I have my network set up right with my DSL and computers, I need to introduce a twist to the setup.
I have a few Epson printers. I have a surplus of network cards for Epson printers. After installing these, I now have Epson printers I can put on my network. I have already installed the approopriate drivers and such on my Mac clone which runs AppleShare IP. My thinking is that I could use this to control the queues for these printers.
So before I get started in this...
- Anyone ever done this exact thing before?
- Am I right to use AppleShare to control printer queues?
- Are there any special things I need to consider to put these printers on the network?
--To answer the side questions, I have about three printers I would like to put on the network, each serving a purpose (as each printer is a different model and class) and in a discrete location. I am not hooking them up just because I have them (well maybe I am with the one-but it is a 900G and has the blue and white to match my iBook... and it is fast)
