Printing over internet to Wireless Laser Printer??
I was wondering whether it is possible for me to print to my partner's laser printer over the internet?
i know the ip address of my partner's router, what else would need to be done if it is possible?

For a general service, he would have to do a port forward from the router the service. In this case it will be the printer.
Not sure if this will work with a printer. Alternative, it can be needed to setup a VPN connection.
Can you specify which laser printer is in use?

The printer is a brother hl-2135w

Did you try with the port forwarding? (UDP 137 should be standard configuration)

Nope, wasn't sure on port number. Will give that a try and report back with results.

i tried port forwarding on UDP 137 to the printer, but i was unable to find the printer remotely...
any other ideas ?

have you looked into THIS option?...it has a"classic printer" setup option for any printer that isn't already compatible out-of-the-box.
