Printer Sharing Without a Network With Raspberry Pi Zero W @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
Here’s a DIY project that uses a Raspberry Pi Zero to allow for sharing a printer that doesn’t have network connectivity, or a network isn’t available. Here’s more from feiticeir0 via the Element 14 Forum:
Using a Raspberry PI Zero W I’m able to share the printer with more than 1 client . To this day, I have 8 working without a problem and more are yet to come.
This is a neat solution that solves a lot of problems: I don’t have to rely on a computer (Windows) to be on all the time for someone to be able to print. It’s more stable and reliable. Only requires WIFI. Installation on Windows is easy
