For AWS Windows servers, you can try the following:
When you create the printer name it EPSON on AWS_EBSHOST, assuming the local host name is AWS_EBSHOST.
The reigister a printer in EBS named \\AWS_EBSHOST\EPSON and it should print while RDP is active for testing printing.
Our EBS istance is on Oracle Cloud Linux OL6.
I want to connect it to local on-premise EPSON printer.
Please validate the following procedure:
1. Provision a PC with two network cards.
2. Connect this PC to an internet
3. Download and install endian firewall.
4. Attach the printer to this PC via patch cable.
5. Install EPSON printer driver to this PC? or to Oracle cloud linux server?
Can you expound more the next steps please.
Steps 1,2 and 3 were correct. On 4, the printer can be wireless or otherwise on the network, not directly connected to the Endian Firewall.
Install the following rpms on the OL6 cloud server:
Follow these Guides for setting up OpenVPN and Endian Firewall:
Install Endian Firewall:
Register for DynDNS:
If you name your certificate file efwebs.pem and register your dynDNS host as ebsguru.dyndns.org, you would establish a VPN connection from the cloud OL6 to your Endian OpenVPN via the following command as root:
openvpn --client --pull --comp-lzo --nobind --proto udp --dev tap --ca /root/efwebs.pem --auth-user-pass --tun-mtu 1500 --mute-replay-warnings --remote ebsguru.dyndns.org 1194
For 5, you install configure the Epson printer in CUPS just like on local Linux installations after you have established a connection.
Oppssss I forgot...Sorry the EBS R12.2.0 is hosted in AWS Windows 2012 R2 Server
Can I still test Ghostscript pdf printing on R12.2.0?
Once you establish a VPN connection from your cloud resource, it will be on your network just like a local server. Just setup the printer exactly like you would a local networked printer with Ghostscript and/or Xpdf for Pasta PDF printing.
Thanks best friend and to ALL!
