Printing with Dlink DI-624S and VPN connection

Hi there, any help appreciated please.

I have a Dlink Di-624S DSL Modem Router. This unit has two USB ports for connecting two devices like printers, external drives etc.

With a printer connected to one of the ports, I have no problems printing from my laptop. However when I connect through the Router to a VPN, I am unable to send print requests to the printer. I have to log out of the VPN connection and then the router will pass the print request to the printer. Then I log back into the VPN to continue that work.

Is there a way that the Di-624S router can be configured to allow printing vis its USB ports when I am logged into a VPN?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
regards...Paul

I am guessing this VPN is something work related and not a VPN you setup yourself?? If that is the case your company's VPN access will not allow you to pass from there network back to yours which is why you are unable to print to your local home printer when connected to VPN. You might could run it by your IT staff and see if they will allow connection and help you set it up. If not then simply email the docs to yourself and then print them out after you are finished using VPN connection.

Hope this Helps

Repetitive disconnect problem....requires powering off & on to reset


I used a D-Link Di 624 for a number of years with Comcast and never had a problem with the router, but I did upgrade the firmware. You may want to look at the following items from D-Link about the DI-624S and see if you can find a better solution. I took the router out of service as I changed to Verizon FIOS and use their provided router.

Yes if you consult the manual that came with the router it will show you how to connect the modem to it and setup the DSL (PPPOE)settings. Some Modems though already have the PPPOE settings within the unit and then the router would just need to be set to automatic. You will need to configure from the PC but afterwards you can shut down all your PC's on the network at anytime.

Dlink Broadband Router Dl-604


You can connect many computers to a network with switches, (or hubs if you want an even cheaper option) but in order to connect to the internet there will need to be a router (or modem) to connect to your ISP.

anything else?

DLink DI-624s - can't get Cisco VPN Client to connect.


The "Virtual Server" setting is designed to give the general public access to a network resrouce (web/ftp/media server) on your internal network. If your the VPN concentrator is external to your network (meaning you'll have to use the internet to connect to it), then you won't need to define a virtual server on the DI-624.

You'll just need to enable the IPSEC and PPTP VPN Passthrough which it sounds like you've already done this. I've run into some ISP's that block VPN connections out of their network. If you have the ability, try to directly connect your laptop into your cable/DSL modem in place of your router and see if you can make a VPN connection, if not contact your ISP, if you can then verify you enabled the VPN passthroughs because your router is blocking them.

GIve it a shot and let us know your results.
