I'm not even sure if this is technically possible, but it would be great to allow the HiveOS to do to AirPrint what it did to AirPlay. It would be similar to this hardware device: http://www.lantronix.com/it-managemen... or this app: http://www.ecamm.com/mac/printopia/

Bradley,
Our Bonjour Gateway is intended to work with all Bonjour services, including AirPrint. We have discovered an issue with IOS and AirPrint which we intend to address in a future release, but your Mac clients should be able to connect to and use printers that are separated from the Mac clients themselves by a Bonjour Gateway.

I was more thinking about extending AirPrint for network printers that don't already support it. Check out those links and you'll see what I mean.

I'm not even sure it would be technically possible, though. Just throwing out ideas.

Bradley,
My apologies, I should have followed the links before replying. I see what you mean now. Those are both full-blown print servers with local storage and queue management. At the risk of disappointing you, we would prefer to use our precious memory and CPU horsepower for other things.
