VPN - NAT Question

I have a remote office that has a DSL connection using PPoE with 1 public IP Address. I've installed a Dlink Di-704 gateway that enables me to have several PC's connected to the internet with 1 IP address. I installed the VPN client on the PC's and they connect to a VPN 3015 here at the corp. office.

My question is:

I want to install a laserjet printer to the 704 using an HP jetdirect print server. The 704 supports NAT, can I NAT the printer so that anyone from the internet can print to th printer located on the inside of the remote office?

Will I have problems because the PC's are using VPN?

Re: VPN - NAT Question

It shouldn't have a problem for you to do the Static NAT for the Printer. Additionally the VPN shouldn;t cause any problems with the NAT if you make sure to bypass the NAT by using Policy Route maps, something similar can be found at:

Hope this helps,

Thanks and Regards,
