My project is a intranet application working as an offline captive portal. This part i have working.
However, I need to add a thermal network printer that does not have USB or Bluetooth. I would like to plug the printer directly into my Raspberry Pi 3's eth0 socket, receive a static IP so that my application can send jobs to the printer.
I do NOT need anyone connected to the hotspot to use the printer, just a direct connection from the Pi to the printer so that the application can print receipts.
Is this possible?
It would be awesome if the printer could get the same IP everytime :)
My attempt at a configuration...
auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet manual iface wlan0 inet manual auto br0 iface br0 inet static bridge_ports eth0 wlan0 address 192.168.2.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
bogus-priv server=/localnet/192.168.2.1 local=/localnet/ address=/#/192.168.2.1 interface=br0 domain=localnet dhcp-range=192.168.2.10,192.168.2.254,1h dhcp-option=3,192.168.2.1 dhcp-option=6,192.168.2.1 dhcp-authoritative
thanks and much appreciated
