    Printing from one domain to another

    Heya,

    We've currently got one printer in an admin block in school, we have papercut print manager installed on the admin server. We have 2 domains and the printer is installed on the admin side. I'm wanting to be able to print to this machine from the other domain, is there an easy way of doing this? I could use the IP address of the printer directly but i want to be able to charge users for printing.

    Cheers

    A trust is needed between domain A and domain B, but also, you may need to adjust the security (on the printer itself), so users from the second domain can print to the printer.

    The alternative (if everything's on the same subnet), is to setup the printer on your curric domain (as well as your admin domain), giving it a different share name to suit.

    Looks like it's some sort of trust then, they're on 2 different IP address ranges but there's a firewall rule that allow traffic between the 2 ranges

    I've looked at the web print idea, if all else fails i can do that but ideally i'd like them to just be able to select the printer from whichever program they're using rather than having to use a pdf printer than upload the pdf to web print. Cheers
