Hi Experts,

We have a puzzling VPN issue.

We have a Cisco VPN COncentrator We want to be able to print to an printer on a 3rd party network is it possible to add this printer to a windows server with an TCP/IP conection using this 3rd party remote IP assigned yo it?
Then send the print job to the Concentrator translate the IP to a remote  NAt'd IP and have the print job print to the remote printer that is on a 3rd part network?

Is this possible?

So to be clear.

- You have Site 1 and Site 2.
- Your printer is on Site 2.
- You want to print to this printer from Site 1
- Site 2 is connected to Site 1 via the VPN Concentrator located at Site 1?

NATed IPs?

Be more specific...

- Site 2's network is 1:1 NATed into a pool of Site 1's IPs?
- Site 2 and Site 1 both have PAT enabled?
- Site 2's VPN endpoint in Site 1 has only 1 IP and is MANY:1 NATed?

If that's the case, you should quite easily be able to just add the printer like your said.

the NAted IP in the printer or the real 3rd party IP on the printer then Nat'd it in the Concentrator?

Is it true that you can not route a 3rd part IP without Nat'ing it?

Thanks

What do you mean by 3rd party IP?

Can you post the details of the network ranges of both sites, and the Printer's real IP address.

Site 2 Printer IP 205.181.160.2(static reall IP)
Site 1 Server IP 10.255.50.12(add Site 2 Printer IP 205.181.160.2 send the print job to the VPN Concentrator translate the real IP to a Nat'ed Ip so it can be routed in the tunnel then try to print ot the Site 2 printer

The 205.0.0.0 subnet is a 3rd party network before the Nat translation not on our private IP subnet
is this possible witout Nating the 205.181.160.2?

Thanks
