Lan ip printer forward to internet



  • i have a carp ip system setup so i have two carp machines that have both public ips then a seperate card for lan ips

    the printer is on the lan side (10.x.x.x) and i setup a virtual carp ip (public 128.x.x.x) and set a nat 1:1 for the printer lan ip to the public carp ip

    the printer is an hp 4000 series connected via ethernet with a static dhcp ip.

    i set up a firewall rule to allow full access from a  specific outside internet ip address to the public carp address

    when i try to print from the outside computer it fails,  but if i print on the lan side it works perfectly…

    any extra rules or nat forwarding i need to do for this printer?

    thanks!

  • The rules look good.

    Maybe a dumb question, but did you set the gateway on your printserver? (if you are able to set it).
    Could it be that you have no option to set a gateway on the printserver?



  • heres the screenshot for my print server
