I need to print to a network printer in a different location over the internet.
Location A DSL-ROUTER-LAN-PC
Location B: DSL-ROUTER-NETWORK_PRINTER
The remote printer is a network printer and directly connected to the router. I would like a PC independent configuration, so that no PC has to run on the remote location when I send a printjob to the remote printer.
I understand IRR would be an option but not sure about the security issues nor how to set it up correctly. Security is not a major issue for this setup but the installation should be reasonably secure. I do not want to set up an VPN. Is there some easy way for security, such as user identification, ip-filtering or to send print data encrypted?
Can I use any network printer or better a print server adapter (e.g. Lan to USB adapter and a USB printer instead of printer with integrated LAN port).
Any help appreciated
