I have an Ethernet network, which utilizes two Digiboards to establish serial connections through the network.

I need help in serial printing. I have a HP 2230 printer with a JetDirect 615n internal Print Server. I need to connect this printer through the print server to a serial port on the Digiboard in order to enable UnixWare printing to a specific location on the network. Can this be done? How do you configure such a connection? I am new to networks, TCP/IP, bootp, etc. so I really do not know how to make this work. Since I've never worked on a setup similar to the one you have described, I won't be able to give you direct answers. However, don't loose hope as there are alternatives!
