A question about network printer...
I have an Okidata C5200n network printer. I'd like to share my printer over the network. Just testing the waters, but say I wanted my dad back home (in another city) to be able to add my printer to his printers that he can print from in windows. So basically which port would I have to setup port forwarding(PAT) on my gateway/router? Port 631? If so, is there a way I can setup authentication? And what types are available. What do people normally do in this case? I mean anybody could just bruteforce my printer's site on port 631.
