Internet printing

Hi, I have setup two printers via IPP and can browse the printers and see what their current status is from outside of the network.  The problem is when I click connect, I get the following error:

Printer installation failed - the printer name is invalid

But all internal users can connect and print ok?

Regards,

Roy

Hi, tried the details as explained on the link above, still no joy!

Can view all the printers via an external ip address, how much paper is in them etc... but when I click connect its says printer installation failed.

It is setup on a windows 2000 server.

Regards,

Roy

This IS asp.net right?

By default, asp.net doesn't run with the permissions of a domain user, so if connecting to this printer has anything to do with using a domain user, you'll have to go through some steps to change this.

You may just try adding <identity impersonate="true" /> to web.config and see if it "fixes" the problem.
