Default Vigor 2600 Printing Issue

Hello,

For this posting I have taken a couple of random IP address so that my
quest for information is easier to explain. So far as I am aware the
IP numbers do not exist.

My Vigor 2600 has a public address IP address of 93.47.162.7 and is
pretty much set up as it came out of the box.

On the LAN there is a printer at fixed IP address 192.168.42.103

I would like to make this printer available to a friend at a remote
location. LPR has been enabled on his machine and I have in mind
simply stating that the printer is available at address 93.47.162.7

Now its a bit obvious that some configuration is required within the
Vigor unit for the print file to find its way to the printer but what
excactly needs to be added/changed?

Help from a Guru would be nice.

David Bradley

You would have to see if the printing could be redirected from the
source to a particular port at the router, then on the 2600 you could
redirect that incoming port to the printer IP.

If you had multiple public IP addresses then it would be more easier
as you could simply give a IP address.

This link (http://www.duxcw.com/dcforum/DCForumID2/1926.html)
talks about sharing printers using XP, if that is an option for you.

I wouldn't claim to be a guru, but it sounds like you simply need to
configure the LPR port (TCP 515?) to be open and associated with the address
of your printer/print server at 192.168.42.103. You can do this via NAT
SetupOpen Ports Setup.

You might also want to consider using the dynamic DNS facility if your
public IP address is not fixed.

Whether it is wise to open up this port for anybody to use and abuse is
another issue! You might want to try and restrict access to just your friend
using the firewall, or even consider VPN depending on your needs.

Mark.

Forwarding port 515 should do it but bear in mind that to prevent the
rest of the internet community using your "exposed" printer you will need to
implement some access control. Printer firmware generally doesn't have
any so and I'm not sure about the Vigor, so you might consider having a
machine with spooler S/W which can filter incoming connections.

To what extent is an 'open' printer a target for the "World and his
wife" to send trash to; any experiences out there?

I note your comments about a spooler. Without one locally are messages
lost in the ether if the printer is off-line or stored somewhere
[where?] to sprew out when the printer is on line again.

Thoughts on these matters appreciated.

As an aside to that post, the modern HP LaserJets (esp. LJ4550) and their
associated firmware have ACL's. Maybe this would be applicable? not sure as the
OP doesn't state any Make/Model
