Is it feasible to implement a printer server with Raspbrry Pi3? let's say for 20 printers? or I would not support it?
Thank you very much for your comments!
What would such a print server do? Will it keep accounts of who printed how much? Will it serve as a firewall between a segmented network for network printers and the rest of your local area network? Will it provide network access to USB printers? Does it need to route printing requests from an encrypted VPN? Will you be sharing printers through Samba, CUPS or lpd?
Thinking of a small business that does not want to spend on a server and does not consider it cost effective to use a PC for a printer server ha ha
Assuming from 1 to 7 employees per printer, this company has 20 to 140 employees. The Pi is a great computer, but I would not want to be responsible for a failure in which a $35 device designed to teach children programming makes it impossible for anyone to print.
