Is possible to configure a Linux computer to work as a "network printer device" ? I have an USB printer that I intend to share in the network like a native network printer device.
Is that possible? How?
NOTES: 'Autonomous' network printers usually communicate with the protocol "HP Jetdirect" (Also known as "Raw").
I have a RS/6000 with AIX 5 that finds and works with any kind of 'autonomous' network printer. And I would like to expose through Linux (preferably Debian) an USB printer in the network, like any ordinary network printer (autonomous device) which I could access in AIX.
EDIT: I need to do in AIX something like that, where 'my_printer_ip' is the Linux IP:
$ netcat my_printer_ip 9100 $ Hello remote USB printer plugged in a Linux ! $ <Ctrl+D>
