We have a remote office that we could put on a hardware VPN (ASA5505) to connect a pc and barcode printer to our network. Since the PC can use Cisco AnyConnect it would be great if there was a way to have the printer on a stand-alone VPN.
The printer does need to be on our network to talk to a Bartender server.
I was not sure if there were any barcode printers that could VPN, or any IPP that would work.
The challenge would be the continuous session from the printer to our network.
The job would be submitted from the laptop, processed on the server, and sent to the remote printer.
The VPN can be done, but it is in another country so I was looking this over before the investment and configuration.
