Printer access via Router

Printer access via Router

I setup a seperate network for our training area using a Linksys 54G router. (The router has a static IP from the main network...and provides DHCP services to the training computers).  

If I want to allow access to a main network printer thru this router...how would I set that up? (If possible...)  Thanks in advance!

RE: Printer access via Router

Likely these easiest thing to do would be to make LMHOSTS entries on all of the behind the WRT54G workstations, or, use a print server that would identify the printer as an IP address.
