Creating a LAN of thermal receipt printers on a laptop
Hey all I have been designing and developing a setup for a while now that basically
has one laptop computer acting as server
a router that connects to laptop wirelessly
4 thermal receipt printers (ethernet connected directly to RJ45 port in router)
4 gadgets that connect to printers and trigger them to print (each gadget has its own unique printer, e.g. gadget 1 is connected to printer 1)
Now i am trying to set everything up together, but am having difficulties getting my PC to recognize EACH receipt printer. They are all the same type of printer but I am trying to figure out a way for each printer to react autonomously to all the other printers, and only when printer # 1's designated gadget is prompted to print it prints.
Any help would be really appreciated, thanks guys!
