I'm trying to be able to print over the internet (outside of my intranet) to a LJ4000 EIO card.  

I've setup port forwarding on my DLink Router (DIR-655) to the IP address of the printer (  Public port 12121 to private port 515.  I've verified that LDP printing is enabled on the EIO board in the LJ4000.

I determined the IP address of my cable modem 69.14.x.x, and I setup a printer 69.14.x.x:12121.

I've attached a photo with these setting displayed.

If your going to use LPD then you need to set the connection to use LPR and specify the quue name on the printer. It will use the port to communicate to the printer, port translate within your router for 515 but then try RAW communciation on port 9100.

You may find that your port 12121 as it is in the reserved port range is blocked by the firewall of the external connection on your provider.
