Bridge a modem

July 17, 2009 at 13:03:27
Specs: Windows XP
I have to connect Area A to Area B.
A was just set up a few days ago.
The modem (provided by the internet company) is connected to my provided router.
It seems as though everything is set up correctly.
I tried to print at Area A from Area B but could not make the connection.
I think it has to do with how the Modem is bridged. Or even if it should be bridged.
i know the router is set up correctly. I had our company tech work on it. He just doesn't travel away from area B.
I need help in trying to find this solution so I can print at A from area B.
I am also at area B and cannot make it to A.
I need to be able to explain to my employee from A how to fix this problem. Can anyone help me?

We have no way of knowing, from your description, WHERE Area A is in relation to Area B.

Are they both behind the router or are these two sites you are trying to connect through the internet?

More information is needed. What are the IP addresses of Area A and Area B? How area A and Area B connected? How far away from each other are Area A and Area B.

In hat case you are looking at a Virtual Private Network. For that you need MODEMs at both sites with an Internet connection.

Decide where the server is going to be. Configure it as a server and the other site as client. Search google for VPN software.
