PaperCut NG on AFP548
PaperCut NG has made the front page of the popular Mac server related site, AFP548.com. This should be a good way to help drum up some feedback from experienced Mac server admins. You can view the post here.
On the topic of server discovery in the client as discussed in a previous post. Some have suggested that we look at exposing the PaperCut NG server using Bonjour (aka Rendezvous). This is an interesting technology and we’re looked at this before. It would be relatively simple to register PaperCut NG server as a service. One issue we need to investigate further is discovery across subnets/domains. The current method of dynamically creating the client
.app package upon install with an embedded IP/server name works well in this regard. We’ll look at Bonjour a little more after we address some of the more pressing bugs/issues.
