I am trying to link the two internal nets (172.26.x.x and 192.168.1.x)
so users from both networks can use the printers in both nets.

My SuSeFirewall2 config is as follow:
- FW_DEV_EXT="any eth3"
- FW_DEV_INT="eth0 eth2"
- FW_ROUTE="yes"
- FW_MASQ_DEV="zone:ext zone:int"

From network 172.26.x.x I can ping up to eth2 but no futher, and the
same with network 192.168.2.x
What about ssh ? Can you ssh from one net to another ?

My Google searches have not shown any result. What do I miss in my
configuration ?
Are you sure it's a firewall configuration ? It could be the
configuration of your print-server system. Many printing servers, by
default, only allow printing from the network it is connected to. Just
check it to make sure.
If you are sure it is a firewall configuration, could you provide the
firewall log right after a printing attempt ? Also state witch machine
is printing to witch machine.
