You can use Gabriel’s Secure Gateway to securely expose many types of applications and services. This page will walk you through connecting to and using a printer that another user has shared over the internet using Gabriel.
In this example, lets say your friend, Bob or bob.domain.scom, as shared his printer from his MacBook over port 631. The Secure Domain Name for Bob’s printer would be macbook.bob.domain.scom:631
Open “System Preferences” and choose “Printers & Scanners”
Click on the “+” button to add a new printer
Click on the “IP” tab as shown in the picture below.
Enter “macbook.bob.domain.scom:631” in the “Address” field and make sure “Internet Printing Protocol – IPP” is selected in the “Protocol” drop down.
Give the printer a name and then click the drop down next to “Use:” to choose the printer drive. .
Note: Auto discovery will not work unless other ports are opened. You will need to know the type of printer you are trying to connect with. You will also need the printer drivers. For OS X, you can obtain packages will all drivers for select devices:.
