PIX to PIX printing with no VPN

I have a PIX 515 and a PIX 501 and an trying to setup a printer behind the 501 to be accessible to users behind the 515. Are there any special instructions that anyone knows to doing this? Do I have to create a special fixup protocol for port 9100?

I don't want to create a VPN connection for this if I don't have to right now.

Re: PIX to PIX printing with no VPN

On the 515 you shouldn't need anything special other than a nat/global which you should already have. On the 501, because traffic will be coming from outside to inside, you will need a static and an access-list. The access-list should just permit port 9100 (TCP or UDP?) and users will print to the global address of the printer that is defined in the static command.

In short, it shouldn't be any different to allowing any other IP traffic from a lower security interface (outside) to a higher security interface (inside).
