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
