Implementation Notes

The print server is hosted on Linksys NSLU2 running OpenWRT 18.06 and p910nd. The device was generously provided by ignisf.

The device is connected using wired connection to the initlab network and uses usb2parallel cable for communicating to the printer, so that the usb connection is available for scanning. For some reason in order for the printer to be seen an usb hub is required.

A hardware hack has been applied so that the device boots on power-on (the power must be out for at least 5-10 sec).

The majority of initlab power users have access ssh access to the device (including maniax, lz1irq, ignisf, Slackware).
