Unless it's a proprietary name, I always have heard pcs dedicated to
routing and managing print devices referred to as "Print Servers." I
believe that's how the old Windows NT referred to such devices, and if
memory serves, Novell Netware also uses that designation. In any case,
"Print Server" would be my suggestion (unless, of course, that's a
proprietary designation that would confuse users about the underlying
network OS).
