File and Print server

Overview

The central server is used through the swannremovals office to allow files to be shared between all hosts on the local network using Samba. It also allows documents, photos etc. to be printed from any host within the office using the open source Common Unix printing system CUPS.

The server also hosts an LCDd liquid crystal display (LCD) server that displays the status of the central server so it can be seen in the office without having to log in to the server.
