Hello! So here’s the situation: At work we have several Mini’s (and some planned Taz 6’s). We also have a LAN network connecting all of our computers; it has not internet and no Wi-Fi capabilities. I want to be able to network all of my 3D printers to our network, but I am not allowed to use a Raspberry Pi because it is not an approved hardware device–no Linux based computers are. Windows based computers are approved (up to Windows 7). So, what are my options to control my printers on our local network? Here is what I was maybe thinking:
Use Octoprint for Windows on kind of a master control computer that would be plugged into all of our printers. Would other computers on the network be able to control the printers?
Use some sort of USB to Ethernet adapter that let’s anyone on the network control the printers from any computer connected to the network? Does technology like this exist?
Any other ideas? Thanks!
