1. Take one Lantronix, Emulex, Summix, Zimax, etc., print spooler
box. These have 1 ethernet 10/100 mbps, 2 parallel port, 1 serial
port interface. OK OK, these use a wall plug power supply.
But the box I am looking at right now is 8inches wide, 1 inch high (thick),
and 5 inches deep.
I will not claim that the code changes are 'trivial' but if you are
familiar with IPFilter then it takes about a day.
The configuration and user interface is a bit more work.
Ummm... the whole slamboodle, with IPNAt, and Print spooling,
etc. etc. is about 982K, (compressed), uses about 8 Mbytes
RAM. You can save the configuration in CMOS (Dallas makes some
VERY interesting RTC, RAM chips just for this purpose).
Great. So tell me where I can buy one or more, and how to build and
blast new firmware into it. 8)
