Abstract
(EN)

A computer network may include at least one network printer, a plurality of network computers for generating print jobs for the at least one network printer, and a network print server coupled to the plurality of network computers for queuing the print jobs for the at least one network printer. Moreover, the computer network may further include at least one printer control device coupled between the network print server and the at least one network printer. The at least one printer control device may be configured to provide remote access to the at least one network printer via the World Wide Web (Web) using a Web communications protocol, communicate the print jobs from the network print server to the at least one network printer, and isolate the network print server from remote access communications formatted in the Web communications protocol.
