I have an application that only allows very rudimentary printer settings. In principle, only the IP of a network printer can be specified, which is then addressed via IPP (port 9100).
Now I would like to get rid of the physical printers used for this and provide several virtual PDF printers in the network. At first I thought of a classic CUPS server with PDF printing. The problem, however, is that these printers are addressed via a URL, e.g. http://printserver/printers/PDF. But in the above mentioned program only one IP can be entered and not a URL.
Is it possible under Linux to provide a virtual printer that is addressed exclusively via an IP address?
