[THIN] Re: OT - printing across the internet

When you use a standard TCP/IP port, Windows sets it to RAW, 9100 which is
correct. So probably the (printing) signal leaves your network on port 9100
but on the other side it is likely to be blocked by the router and or
firewall.

If the JetDirect is directly connected to the Internet, i.e. has a 
public IP, then you would likely have better luck setting it up as a 
standard TCP/IP port.
