<printer> A server device that is set up on a network to route print
requests and status information between computers and printers connected by a
network. A typical print server routes print requests for multiple computers and
printers on a network.
For example, a networked workstation user submits a print command that includes
a print file and information about the printer to be used, usually a nearby
printer for convenience. The print server sends the print file to the requested
printer. The printer spools the print file and provides job status. The print
server relays the status of the printer back to the workstation and makes this
status information available to other devices on the network.
