I found in the manual that it's possible to connect printers where
convenient, but I'm unable to find how to set up the printer so it is

I too have the same problem


may I know the printer brand/model?


I only got around to fix it last night. The printer is an HP 4600, which is old, so supported with the older drivers and hplip.

The trick was to define in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf:
[...the mac address of the node where the printer is attached...]

The last line isn't necessary, because that's the default.

then you can add it on the tjener's cups server with jetdirect using the ip number of the terminal (I was unable to assign a dns name to a terminal attached to the 192.168.0/24 network, as gosa kept enforcing that the address was in the 10.0/8 range)

Obviously you need the correct driver installed on the tjener for the printer to work properly.
