How to make CUPS a JetDirect/AppSocket print server
I have been told that you can setup cups to listen to port 9100 like a working AppSocket (raw) printer.
I have been looking for some way to do this for days now and no luck... i have found 3rd party tools but none have worked for me ( ppf - Printer Port Forwarder for example )
i wish the printer connected to my routers usb port to print via port 9100 or some other using CUPS.
if there is a way to configure my linux router (with cups) to share its printer via por 9100 to other computers.
The client config i can do easy, but the server config is something that i am not sure can be done with just cups.
for example my routers ip address ( the router that has the printer plugged in to its usb port (/dev/usb/lp0) is 10.0.0.1.
My client machine is 10.1.0.1, and i wish to use the printer on 10.0.0.1 via por 9100 as i would any jetdirect print server.
I was told i can configure cups to do so but i have not found any way to do it if its true.
Is there really a way to do this? or is this just a myth?
Hope somebody knows,
