I am trying to do a proof of concept for a project that I am working on. One of the requirements is that all printers will be configured with an external IP address so no matter where the users are they can have access to the printers via that external IP address. What I did was place the printer on the internal LAN and create an alias with a public IP on the dedicated WAN. Then I allowed traffic from the WAN to the printers internal IP address. This works great for the people outside of the SA but not for the people inside of the SA where the printer resides.
Now I know you are thinking point these people to the internal IP of the printer. Short answer, I can't. This is a requirement that they also print to the public IP of this printer. If I http to the public IP of the printer from outside of the SA I get the printers configuration screen. If I http from inside the SA to the public IP of the printer I get the SAs configuration screen (even with remote management disabled) on the alias. I need to be able to disable this somehow or get an answer immediately if this is not an option so I can move on.
