VLAN for Multi-Function Printer

On-site we have a Firebox XTM550 Appliance, Catalyst 2960 Switch, and an SF500 Switch. My end goal is to have a VLAN (VLAN250) configured for a Multi-Function printer that each other VLAN can print to. All of the VLANs are configured correctly, and pulling the correct addresses. I am able to ping the device (which is on a different vlan) but I am unable to configure it on different workstations (cant pull up the web gui either). Ive recently made a NAT change on the firebox (policy manager > network > NAT) allowing the optional zone (all vlans) access to VLAN 250 and vice versa. I have been unable to test this change as I am not on-site. Any idea if this setting change will allow functionality across VLANs, or is there any other settings which needs to be adjusted?

Have you ensured that all devices in all VLANs have a default gateway configured towards the Firebox, including the printer?
Have you tried reaching the printer from all VLANs? If you can reach the printer via Ping, it may just be a rule problem on the firebox.

If the firebox is mainly in place to do the Inter-VLAN-Routing, but not necessary to do any packet inspection/filtering between the VLANs, have you considered putting the SF500 in its place to do the IVR?

What happens if you put a PC in VLAN 250? Can you reach the PC from the other VLANs, and vice versa?

internal VLAN routing shouldnt be natted. it should just be routed.

Either add the new VLAN and its subnet details as an additional LAN IP, or create a new LAN internface and plug it into an appropriate port.

Turned out to be a rule within the Firebox. Allowed all traffic both ways (from optional zone to vlan250 & vice versa) and was able to access the printer without problems.
