Running Tomato 1.28. I can print successfully to the printer attached to the USB port of my ASUS WL-520GU when I'm local, by installing the print drivers on my PC, adding a printer, and giving it the IP address of the router, 192.168.1.1. My goal is to print to the printer remotely, over the internet. On a remote computer, I installed the printer driver, added a new printer the same way as I did locally, but gave it the public IP of my ASUS router. The print job doesn't make it through. I tried setting up a port forwarding rule in Tomato for any source address to forward port 9100 to 192.168.1.1. This still doesn't work. What am I doing wrong? I hope this is possible. Thanks so much for any help!

Connect with SSH and set your printer to eg 192.168.1.? = printer and then print.
Thanks Just Me. This works when I establish an SSH tunnel, and I can print, however I'm hoping there is a way to achieve this without using an SSH tunnel. The server that is sending the print jobs will need to print to multiple ASUS WL-520GU routers, so I would need to have an SSH tunnel going to each one of these routers, but if I am understanding things right, I can only have 1 tunnel going, since the tunnel is using localhost on a random port forwarded to 9100. I could not then setup a 2nd tunnel, because localhost is already in use from the first tunnel. Maybe there is a configuration that would work that I'm unaware of where I can have multiple SSH tunnels setup. Does anyone have any ideas I can try?
Thanks for your help!
Was thinking through this more (sorry this is all kind of new territory for me), and I should be able to setup multiple SSH tunnels since I can pick any random source port. Will have to give this a go.
