Notes:

Only one USB printer can be connected to the LinkStation.
Bidirectional communication is not supported i.e., remaining ink quantities and other printer status information is not supported.
If a multifunctional printer is connected, only the printer function can be used. Other functions such as scanning will not be available. If you need bidirectional communication or multifunction features such as scanning to work, connect the printer with USB Device Server instead.
The print server does not support Mac OS.
