SMC Barricade firewall/routers have print servers. I have one, and it
functions as a Unix lp queue with a parallel interface. Works fine for
a postscript printer. The one problem I've seen is that its memory has
limits; sometimes very large graphical images won't print.
The newer SMCs have a USB printer queue. I'm not sure whether they
still have Unix compatibility, mine's three years old.
