Hi guys,
Do you know how i can solve this problem? I have network printer (192.168.1.150) in office in UK and I need  to configure it that people from USA can print that on that priner. Office in UK: router with static IP, printer configured with local IP address 192.168.1.150, there is no server, printer is connected to the router. The only idea I know and tried is that I configured port forwarding Public IP --> 192.168.1.150 port 9100 (printer's port) but it does not work. I can not leave any PC switched on as prin server . Printer has to work on its own. Is  there any way to set this up?

yes, there is...you can use Internet Printing Protocol...
Printers must be managed by a windows server as a print server...you configure your firewall to access that server as a web server, with a url for printers, your remote users can get to that page from internet and then send print jobs to it...

here is a link...to a doc

Hi. Thanks for very quick response! I  have seen this artice. If i understood it right I will need some server ( running PC) to make this printer available on the Internet..and this a problem because i do not have any. Is it possible to make this printer available on the Interent without PC ( server) connected to it? The printer is connected to the router directly. Thanks for help in advance

Does you printer have the print section in the web menu when you log in to the web interface for it?
