Chapter 12, "Printing with Ubuntu," discussed how to set up and configure local printers and the associated print services. This section covers configuring printers for sharing and access across a network.
Offices all over the world benefit from using print servers and shared printers. In my office, I have two printers connected to the network via a Mac mini with Ubuntu PPC so that my wife can print from downstairs using a wireless link, and I can print from my three computers in my office. It is a simple thing to do and can bring real productivity benefits, even in small settings.
