How to connect to a networked printer on a different subnet?


Hello All,
While I was setting up CentOS 5.5 for my first time I faced this problem which is connecting to a printer is not possible, my tutor told me you need to change from eth0 to eht1 or eth2, what does that mean?
And if I do this, how can I connect a printer which I have its name and IP address.

You need a proxy that has two network interface cards. One on each subnet.

Thank you trist007 for your help, but the problem now is with connecting to the web, every time the OS says your eth0 is not working and asks me to change to eth2, how can I do it?

Really?? Since when could a TCP/IP printer not handle routing?

OK, so this is actually nothing at all to do with printers is it? You have a fault somewhere in your ethernet networking. Well I've no idea what is supposed to be telling you to use eth2, could you enlighten us what this is? In general IF you do have an eth2 nic, then use it. Unplug the cable from the current port and put it somewhere else...
