    iPrint functionality

    Does anyone know if it's possible to install an iPrint printer for a remote
    print not on the Novell network.

    Here is the configuration...

    We have a remote site with their own Internet connection using
    BorderManager 3.8 client to site to connect to our network. They are
    connecting via IP to an database at our site, and we'd like this program to
    be able to print to their local printers (at their remote site). I don't
    know if it's possible, but could we either (a) setup an iPrint printer at
    our site and point it to their public address of their router (using port
    forwarding on their router) or (b) setup an iPrint printer through the VPN?

    I'm sorry for the confusing post... any help would be appreciated.

    You could use an iPrint printer that is setup for "Direct Print". Which
    means the admin configures the printer and when it installs on the
    workstation it will then just print the data directly to the printer
    without first sending it to the server.

    I am assuming the remote printer(s) are networked at the remote location.
    Iprint is for ip or internet printing, so yes you could do either
    solution. My first preference would be to try and go through the vpn but
    you could also use encryption and send it straight through the internet.
    The most troublesome part will be to make the remote printer accessible
    from your location, that is either configuring port forwarding on their
    end or a dns name that resolves to their internal printer. Iprint can
    send to any ip address or dns name it will also allow you to change what
    port is used, so once it is setup on the remote end you should be able to
    configure an iprint printer on your end to send to their printer in raw
    mode.
