Printing with Firewall Policy and VPNs

Specs: Windows XP
hello all,

Notes:
Main Office (0.0/24)
Branch Albion Office (2.0/24)
Branch Fullerton Office (3.0/24)

Objective: Branch Offices talk to each other (printers)

Best Solution's: Buy IPSec VPN router with more then 1 VPN

Workaround: Not buy anything

I have 2 Cisco RVL200 IPSec routers, that im using for branch office VPNs. The routers only allow one IPSec VPN connection. Im using those connections to talk with the Main Office. Its not possible for me to do the translation at the main office on the firewall (Firebox X Edge X55e-W) Iv already talked with them, no luck.

What I have done is:

Albion Public IP --> Fullerton Private IP (0.3/24)
Fullerton Public IP --> Albion Private IP (0.2/24)

I cant ping just the IP but I can ping a port like 192.168.3.3:9100

Would anyone know an idea (firewall/PC) that I could set up the printers. I also set up a print share from the main office, but it takes way to long and times out when i try to print from the branch offices.

I would think all i would need to do is make the firewall changes and allow the ports. Is the problem that they are not on the same subnet. This is set up for the reason of the main office IPSec VPN.

Let me know what you think,

Thanks,

This statement makes no sense

"Im using those connections to talk with the Main Office. Its not possible for me to do the translation at the main office "

Didn't you make sure before you bought equipment it would fulfil your needs?

If you have a site to site vpn, why would you have any port filtering going on? You should be able to ping and see via browsing pcs and printers at the remote sites.
