Hi, I am trying to access a printer on the internet. From my home PC if i want to connect to the printer at my office, what are the steps i need to follow. From my home computer i went to add new printer wizard and there in the URL i enter my officeserver IP address (Printer is connected to the server) and then it asks me for the username and password for which i entered the administrator user and password. but still for some reason it wont get connected. Where am i going wrong. The path i enter in the add printer wizard is http://ip_address/printers/printer_name/.printer. when i try this URL it says printer is offline but the printer would be online 24 hours a day. and if i try this path http://ip_address/printers/printername it asks me for a username and password for which i entered my admin user and pass and it would be returned with an error saying the username and password is invalid. My server is windows 2000 server. Is there any way i could access the printer? the server is directly connected to internet with a public IP.
