|Re: [PLUG] Setting up a Windows Printer to print to accept print jobs over VPN|
I am setting up my home office and connect to $WORK via a VPN through the Dell Sonicwall Netextender. I would like to setup my home printer as a printer on the VPN network. Would it be possible to have the printer on my Windows 7 machine be available for my UNIX (SCO OpenServer) servers to print to. Our WAN guys say my account is setup that it should accept print jobs to the IP address I am assigned when I log into the VPN.My issue is setting up the Windows 7 machine so the printer will be able to see the requests.I installed the Unix Print services for Windows on my Windows machine and can see the LPR port available but when I go to set it up it asks for the ip address of the server. I am unsure if I put the IP of my WIndows machine or the IP I get when I connect to the VPN.On the flip side I am wondering if I just try to use my Raspberry Pi as a print server connecting to my $WORK network with the VPN.TIA--John J.
