Hello, I am looking into the feasibility of having people in a separate office print to our main office over a WAN. Each office has it's own separate firewall and Static IP address.

I would like any experts suggestions **that have actually done this configuration before**. I know theoretically it can work, but I'd like to know how stable this setup works and how hard it was to implement for you.

I'm assuming I will need to do port forwarding and/or NAT routing on the two firewalls in this equation. After determining how many hours this would take to implement I can suggest to client whether we should proceed. End result should be rock solid printing over WAN.

For demonstration purposes, please assume:
Remote Office WAN IP:  88.88.88.88
Main Office WAN IP: 99.99.99.99
Main Office Printer LAN IP:  192.168.1.99
Printer ports used for communication??

thanks!
