Sorry for the noob question. Been using DD-WRT in a very basic way for several years, but now I need to do something that's beyond me.

I have a few printers with static IPs that are used by every work station in the office. Now I'd like to also access them from one computer at home.

The antiquated software only wants to know the ip address of the printer in order to set it up. So let's say it's 192.168.1.150. As I set up a computer in the office, I simply provide that IP address, and it does the rest.

Is there a way in which I can do this from the home computer? Can I forward ports to get a single local IP address at home that will simply see that remote printer?

I understand the basic options are port forwarding, DMZ, OpenVPN, etc... but I want this simplest solution with just a minimal amount of security.
