Hi all

What i need to configure on firewall to access from the laptop to the host in LAN?

Thanks you

It depends on what you want to access.

There’s port forwarding (access port(s)), reverse proxy (access a website) and vpn (full access) to reach internal devices.

Hi @mrmarkuz

I need to use a printer for print and for the moment anything else, so i thinking port forwarding is the better way in this case…
I don’t know which ports i need to open maybe i can use tcpdump to see it and open only i needed, otherwise i open all ports 1:65535

Don’t even think about opening the printer ports to the outside. In this case, it is better to use a VPN.

I use OpenVPN :slight_smile:

Good decision!

Which printer do you use? Which OS do you use on the laptop?
Can you ping the printer by name/ip from the laptop when connected to openvpn?
