Read about Internet Printing Protocol (IPP):
Presumably, your unspecified model router, unspecified printers, and
unspecified operating systems all support IPP.
Yes. I had looked at IPP via the wikipedia link. I couldn't figure out how
to implement that protocol with my XP Media and Vista lap tops,
Both of those have IPP printing clients. Get it working first on your
local LAN. Then, setup port forwarding in your Zyxel router for
TCP port 631
and IPP should work through the router. However, get it working on
your LAN first.
my HP 2600N laser
That's a Jetdirect network interface. Point your web browser to the
HP 2600N IP address and enable IPP.
I found this for a Brother printer. It looks much simpler than the HP
It's for W2K but should be applicable to XP. Vista is its own curse
so you're on your own with that.

That will be more difficult. That's a USB interface which means you
unspecified model computer and either XP or Vista will need to support
the server part of IPP. I know that the various Windoze servers
(2000, 2003) support IPP server printing, but I'm not so sure about
the various Windoze desktops. I'm too lazy too search the MS web pile
for details. Let me know if you can't find anything.

Port forward port TCP port 631.
Thanks and I'll look more into IPP but I get the feeling that its something
the OS uses when printing remotely all on its own and not something I
optionally invoke as part of the solution I'm looking to create.
Huh? Never mind. Don't explain.
problem I have is testing.
Plug, configure, print, swear, repeat.
I don't see the problem.
I wonder if there is a way to test the remote
printing capabilities aside from packing my laptop and driving to Starbucks
each time I want to try it out.
Yes, when you configure your IP address for IPP printer on the
clients, first use the local LAN IP for the 2600N printer. That will
be the local LAN test.
Then, configure another printer using the IP address that your ISP
assigns. That may change, but it only has to stay put long enough to
conduct the test. You can also use your dynamic DNS assigned IP
address. Some routers won't allow you to do that, but I think the
