2 Networks Printing to one Printer

laidbackfreaklaidbackfreak Posts: 991Member
Ok Guys I have two seperate networks (seperate VLANS) different IP range's etc and want to know if there is a way to get them both to be able to print to 1 printer?

1 network Server's are Novell... PC's are running XP
2 Network Servers (arent on site) but windows and PC's are running XP

Printers tend to be HP 4000 series

Anyone point me in the right direction ?
cheers
if I say something that can be taken one of two ways and one of them offends, I usually mean the other one :-)

    Skip the print server and print directly to the printer using the IP address. You can create individual IP pritner ports on each workstation or you could install the HP Universal Print driver and use it to connect to the printer.

    Exactly the way to do it, universal driver has gotten better. IP is always reliable as well.

    ok cheers guys I'll take a look at that option, any way to harden it from a security pov ?

    For example on the second netowrk I have ACL's in place that only allow ipsec traffic (Thats currently the only requirement) obviously I would need to open this up to allow printing, but any other options ?

    cheers
