Trying to add printer on a TS machine that has a different network ID than the one it is on, yet it won't work!

hi guys,

I've got our LAN, on the 10.0.0.0/24 network. And I have another network on the 10.45.191.0/23 network. I've got these two sites connected to one another via VPN.
The routes have also been set correctly within each of the terminal services machines, so both can ping one another.

Im trying to add a printer which is on 10.0.0.55 on the server 10.45.191.41, yet it just won't see it. It's as though it is saying 'I can ping 10.0.0.55, but I sure can't add the printer connected there onto the 10.45.191.41 machine'.

Does anyone know how I can do this? So basically what i want iswhen the person logs onto 10.45.191.41, they can print to the printer that resides on 10.0.0.55.

How can I do this guys? Do you think it's firewall related?

Thanks
Yashy

Can you hit any file shares on that computer? Netbios and ping and printer sharing all run different ports. I don't know them offhand but it's probably not forwarding the correct ports for the printing.

That's a good point. I can't do file shares either. I'm running a sonicwall nsa 3500. But then the VPN tunnel surely kills any rules necessary and would permit ANY access?

I know I've had this issue with multicast and netbios traffic, it doesn't like to cross subnets. In a sonicwall tz210 there is a setting called "ip helper" that let's you setup some niftiness that makes the traffic look like it comes from the target subnet so the responses get through. This may be the issue. See if you have that same menu section on the NSA.
