Remote printing question

LarryLarry All-Knowing Sage ✭✭✭✭

Main Site A - - TZ500 - Active Directory Domain environment

Warehouse B - 192.168.200.yyy - TZ350 - Workgroup environment

Currently there is no communication between the two sites.

Now, client at Site A wants to print - sporadically - to one specific printer at Warehouse B.

What functionality am I looking at setting up in the SonicWalls?

What software (if any) do I need on the one desktop at Main Site A that needs to print remotely?

Any other considerations that I'm not even thinking about (or aware of)?

    First of all, depend on the printer brand and version.

    You can create access rule and nat rule to printer ip and port TCP 9100 on the warehouse and can access only for Site A.

    As MITATONGE mentioned, a strict port-forward (requires WAN Static IP addressing or DynDNS). Simple and straight forward.

    Or a S2S VPN tunnel.

    Setup the printer on the server infrastructure and share it out via Active Directory.

    Then in the future work on getting the warehouse PCs and users in Active Directory.

    Either Site to Site VPN tunnel or VPN client (GVC/SSLVPN, if need only single host required to remote print) will help you.

    While adding/installing the printer, choose IP instead using the netbios name.
