Network printer for bishop

Postby aclawson » Sun Nov 02, 2014 9:24 am

The bishop would like to get the clerk's machine up on the network. For awhile it was installed as a shared device through the clerk's PC but Apple devices couldn't get that to reliably work. We have an HP P2015d so I have to either get a standalone network print server or a new network printer (HP has models for about $75).

What have you used?

I believe most are using the USB connection. I've shut off sharing via the clerk PC for our stake as it opens up the clerk PC to attack from the WiFi network. I don't think policy allows you to pay for "computers" out of the ward budget. That may or may not apply to printers.

So I think your best chance is a network server.

However, I think you want to work with your STS to get your firewall configuration upgraded. Otherwise, there's a good chance that the server and the user device will end up in different IP pools where they cannot communicate.
