Mr Kevin,
You neither answered my question, nor do you have
any idea what the word polite means, as you have
so clearly demonstrated in all your replies.

I think you should get out of the loop since you
obviously are incompetent to answer the question.

You do not own this distribution list, nor are you
a representative thereof, nor are you
the FreeBSD developer community's elected spokesperson.

As you are ill-equipped to answer answer
technical questions sent to an email address created for
just such a purpose, the least you could do is shut up,
and let technically knowledgeable individuals reply.

I answered your question politely the first time, and you wanted to argue about it. I don't. Toddle along, now.

I have sen a few print servers.
Some can handle multiple printers of different
brands and models.
SOme print server I have seen connect to
printers via a set of parallel ports, others
via USB ports, and others via a combination.
Would you say that the print server has  built-in
protocols for every printer on the market?
Or does it merely act as a store-and forward
device, sort of like a buffer?

I would like to use a usb-2-ethernet converter
(Aopen has one - found it at a web site for $12).

What I want to use it for is to convert a usb
device like a printer to an ethernet connected

It's not going to work. You need a print server of some kind (lpr, Novell, AppleTalk) to handle connectivity protocol and spooling. That functionality is provided via Ethernet print servers or cards - just converting the raw signaling isn't enough.
