Hi, these are my ideas:
idea 1:
- enable "auto download recommended files" for those who are allowed to print- print to file
- send file to the node with the printer. the node will automatically download the file
- a script watches the download directory and forwards the file to the printer
pro: easy to implement
con: it is a hack and complicated to use

idea 2:
- implement a TCP forwarding plugin. It forwards all connections to localhost:localport to remote_localhost:remoteport. (similar to port forwarding with ssh)
- use IPP to print from local to remote over RS
pro: can use IPP with all features, easy to use, have a nice plugin for other use cases
con: takes more time to implement the plugin
