Print Server is a kind of server, a device that allows the sharing of printers activity in a corporate network. The advantage of this device is the elimination of a separate computer that Print Server usually replaces. Current models support all most popular operating systems, including Linux distributions and network operating systems NetWare. They usually contain in themselves useful applications for Print Server management, including SNMP protocol for network monitoring and hardware diagnostics, and its POST synergy.
Print Server in practice: Connecting any printer to the computer network. The print server provides access to computer printers and provides print of users - it takes care of the distribution of print jobs from individual users to the printer or multiple printers.
