Print to one massive printer from two separate networks...
Posted on 2007-08-01
What is the best way to do the following:
We have two separate networks now (192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 and 192.168.2.0/255.255.255.0)
All computers are using Windows XP using Windows
We purchased a Linksys RV042 Router (dual-WAN) that we are going to use with redundant WAN links (2xDSL) this will be the edge router for both organizations.
We also have two (cheap) home-type routers now, but they both have "advanced" routing capabilities for using RIP and creating custom static routes.
We want to be able to print to the same massive network printer from both networks, but we don't want to share any other resources/network connections between the two networks.
We would like to keep the existing network I.P.s if possible. (192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0 and 192.168.2.0/255.255.255.0)
We considered subnetting, but we would prefer not going that route unless it's the best way to go.
What's the best way to proceed?
