Can I use my ubuntu server?

I'm not looking for a "how do I"... I can read up when the time comes. I'm just hoping someone doesn't mind giving me a quick yes or not.

I don't have a Raspberry Pi. I do have a 24/7 home server running Ubuntu 20.04. Should I be able to plug my Sidewinder X1 into the server via USB and utilize Octoprint? By "utilize", I specifically mean sending jobs to the printer from another PC on the network.

Again, I don't mind reading to figure out the details, I just didn't want to spend time researching just to find out if I can or not. Lazy, I know, but thank you.

Yes :slight_smile:

But it's not necessarily a good idea. If the server is busy data flow may be interrupted.
