It allows ethernet Mac clients to talk to Localtalk only printers.
Think of it as a Localtalk/Ethernet print server and you've got the 
right idea.

Not if you don't have any Macs or any Localtalk printers.  If you have a 
Localtalk printer and a 'BSD/Linux server though you can use this to 
allow people to spool through the server to that printer.

This is not the print server you're looking for...
Send this print server to me...
Shipping only will be fine...


Seriously I saw something similar locally for $40 total minus the 
I'm in the middle of a move right now _and_ poor otherwise I'd buy it 
from you.  My old Dataproducts laser printer has dead ethernet but a 
good Localtalk port.
