Summary: The way it has you install any printer as an LPT printer, and then convert it to a standard TCP/IP port seems kind of like a roundabout way of doing it, but it works.
Pros: Small, reliable, converts my old USB laser printer to a network printer.
Cons: A little quirky to setup. You need to temporarily set your computers IP address to a 192.168.0.x setup otherwise the included software won't find the server on your network. Once it's found though, you can change it's IP address to match your standard network setup (I don't recommend setting it for DHCP)
Summary: I ran into a problem that was not specific to this print server but to certain printers. After successfully configuring the printer via the JetDirect port, it would print multiple copies of a document over and over, sometimes without end (or until the printer is powered off). The solution was to configure it with the LPR interface and enable the LPR Byte Counting option. After that, the issue disappeared.
Pros: Good performance, small size.
Cons: Does not come pre-configured for DHCP. Therefore, one needs either a Windows box in order to run the configuration application from the included CD or the know-how to configure a network interface on a computer to match the private IP subnet that the server is pre-configured for.
Summary: Not for the newbie this is old technology mostly replaced by network enabled printers if you do not understand networking and rely on plug and pray you need to read the entire manual and perhaps go online for a tutorial on tcp ip networking this device works great and does exactly what it was designed to do.
