Question concerning routing - Linux / Unix Administration

Hi there, I have a problem with a mac OSX computer whihch works as a router. I use this computer as a router between a WLAN network with 192.0.0.0 and a Ethernet network with 10.100.0.0. This seems to work fine since i can access computers from the 10.0.0.0 to 192.0.0.0 and vice versa.

    Default Question concerning routing

    Hi there,

    I have a problem with a mac OSX computer whihch works as a router.
    I use this computer as a router between a WLAN network with 192.0.0.0
    and a Ethernet network with 10.100.0.0.

    This seems to work fine since i can access computers from the 10.0.0.0
    to 192.0.0.0 and vice versa.

    But I have a very weired problem with a printer within the 10.0.0.0
    network :

    If I print anything on it from within the 10. network it works properly
    but if i want to print anything from the router I get from the printer
    an Error like "Unvalid person".

    Does anyone know what this could mean and how to solve that problem ?

    Best regards and thanks in advance,

    Daniel

    Is that the exact error message?
     

    Well at first glance this seems to be a permissions problem, but without
    knowing more about your setup it's hard to tell.

    What operating system(s) do the other computers run? In particular, is
    the printer connected to a computer which runs UNIX and if so what
    printing system (CUPS, etc) are you using? Or is the printer connected
    via an ethernet connection? More info please.

    Hi Neil,

    thanks for your fast answer.
    I first also thought of an permission problem
    but at the end it turned out to be a simple driver problem.

    For some reason I don't exactly understand I can not use
    the normal driver under MacOSX (my router is a mac) for HP Laserjet
    printers, which uses the normal BSD-printing. I had to use the CUPS
    driver instead. So maybe there are permissions missing to use direct IP
    printing with the old BSD system.

    Could this be a way to explain why it works with CUPS only ?

    Best regards,

    Daniel
