    Default Can't ping IP printer?

    I've set up 3 routers to provide security between two small networks, yet be
    able to share resources.

    The setup consists of a Speedstream DSL modem, a Netgear FVS318 immediately
    downstream; and two RP614v2 routers plugged into the '318. All computers (6
    total) are plugged into the 614's.

    I configured the routers so that they each have unique IP addresses, and
    serve (DHCP) unique ranges of IP addresses.

    All computers can share the DSL service without problems. Everything seemed
    fine.

    I then added an HP LaserJet 2300 printer with built-in Ethernet card (HP
    option). I plugged the printer into the '318. I then set up a (memory is a
    bit fuzzy, here) port for access to the printer's IP address (I think).

    When the printer is plugged into either of the 614's, the computers on that
    network can print to the printer. When it is plugged into the 318, no one can
    see it or print to it. Pinging doesn't work either (no packets returned;
    times out) when the printer is on the "other side" of the 614.

    I presume it is possible to access the printer across the router; what am I
    overlooking?

    Thanks,

    It was the Direct Route parameter in the FVS318 that I had configured, not a
    "Port". On this configuration page, the destination (printer IP) address was
    correct, but the gateway (FVS318's IP) address was incorrect.

    All works fine, now.

    FWIW, Netgear wanted to pass me on to their "Premium" tech $upport (in India,
    BTW), but I squeaked like a good wheel that needs grease, and I got help from
    the supervisor.

    Thanks to the (few) who responded.

    This reminds me of my situation when I tried to get my epson printer
    working through air port extreme. Without going into details, I called
    up epson to find out why I couldn't get the thing to work. They wanted
    to charge me $9.95 to tell me that it wasn't possible. My reaction was,
    as I asked the service center, 'are you set up as a profit center?'

    They're _EPSON_. Do you _really_ have to ask?
