Rename USB Printer to something Meaningful

Post by Organik » Sat May 19, 2012 10:10 am

This is absolutely a MUST that so far as been discussed to death and hacks that no longer work with newer firmwares make it a non viable solution.

Below a topic that discusses this problem in detail.

viewtopic.php?f=50&t=25221&p=107377#p107377

The bonjour service can be renamed and for MAC or Linux it works great but for Windows the alternative is a long winded name string which is 0% in common with attached device.

nas3abpr2 on Nas3ab wth is that??? Name of Device (qnap) port 2 on Nasdevice and not a hint what the ** printer it is, when you have more than 2 or 3 and they are different types your left to a low tech solution called post Its

PLEASE QNAP Implement this Important feature asap, dont go on ignoring the users!!!

Seriously!

I was disappointed to see this still hasn't been addressed as of firmware 4.4, eight years later, and wanted to submit my vote for either more sensible default Windows share names for USB printers or the ability to customize them in the QTS web UI. Thanks.
