asked on

accessing printer on another VLAN

Question about accessing a networked printer, the existing LAN is on 192.168.168.x/255.255.255/0, VLAN10 will be on 192.168.20.x/255.255.255.0.
Assuming that vlan ports are tagged correctly on the managed switches,  and allow traffic for both vlans, will clients on VLAN10 be able to print to the printer on VLAN1?  

Or, would I need a class B subnet mask in order for clients on vlan 10 to see the printer on VLAN 1?

You need a router to route between the two IP Subnets.

It is possible that your switch is a L3 switch and may do routing for you. What brand and model switch is it?

Starts with Sonicwall TZ210, then to a Netgear Prosafe GS724TP, then to a Netgear FS726TP.  The printer, a Sharp 5000MFC, and a SonicPoint on VLAN10 will be connected to the FS726TP .  
VLAN is provisioned on all switches.  I will check if the MFC is VLAN aware, or needs a PVID.  It will still need to print to clients on both VLANS.
