Print from differents nets to same printer, help ?

This seems like a hard case to crack, I´ve been trying to find a solution
for this for a couple of weeks now:
* 2 nics in a NW6.5, ZFD7, BM3.9 box
* Bind printmanager to NIC1 IP
* I wan´t to be able to access the printers on PM from machines connecting
to NIC 1 and 2.

Communication to server works from computers connected to NIC1 and NIC2. I
can ping the NIC1 IP from computers connected to NIC1 and NIC2 IP from
computers connected to to NIC2. I can log in to server from computers on
both nets too.

It works fine to access the PM from computers connecting to the server on
NIC 1, but not on NIC2.

How can I access the PM bound to NIC1 IP ?

ps (I have tried using DNS name for PM instead of IP with same poor result).

Re: Print from differents nets to same printer, help ?

I´m answering my own question here..
I solved it by adding an old print queue and then setting each printer to
serve the queue, then I can access the queue from the other network, worked
like a charm..
