Allow IP Printer on lan to be accessible on Vlan?

  • Hi,

    I have a printer on my lan: I would like it to be accessible on the Vlan - 172.16.1.X

    My firewall rules on the Vlan are:

    States X
    Protocol IPV4
    Source *
    Port *
    Destination Lan net
    Port *
    Gateway *
    Queue NONE
    Description BLOCK ALL LAN

    How can I allow the Vlan to print on without exposing anything else on the Lan (192.168.1.x)?

    What printing protocol are you using? All that port above your block to the printers IP. Or if your unsure just allow any to that IP above your block rule.

    Does the printer have a gateway set - many times printers get overlooked if setting static IP of not setting gateway.

    Rules are evaluated top down as traffic enters the interface from the network its connected to, first rule to trigger wins, no other rules are evaluated. Post up your vlan rules and we can discuss if you want.
