Just when you think that you can quietly do some overdue network redesign, everybody suddenly wants network printers / scanners hooked up. And of course, these things are dumb++
- Printers which don't understand DHCP relays and lose their IP address every time their lease expires.
- Printers which do understand DHCP, but their installers do not want to use it since they have bad experiences with it.
- Printers which don't understand DNS and demand the IP address of the SMTP server.
- Printers which don't have MacOS/X printer drivers, but understand LPR so Mac users get un-accounted printing facilities (yay!)
