If the latter, the device will have an IP address on your local network, and if the printer is assigned address, you have opened access to your printer from the Internet. I say this because your "Virtual Server as is described in the manuals" appears to me to be port forwarding, and TCP port 9100 is used by HP on their network attached printers for JetDirect services.

I cannot tell, from what you have posted so far, if this is true, of course. What I actually know for certain, now, is that NAT is being used, as I'd assumed would be the case. That, unfortunately, is all I actually know. More information about your LAN and its configuration, related to the printer, would be helpful.
The printer is connected to the D-Link via Ethernet. I made a Virtual server. Yes, printer assigned address is and ports is 9100. My and the other computer are connected to the D-614 which is connected to the cable modem. In this way we are both reach Internet as HP 3000 printer which has Jetdirect card and is connected to DI-614 via Ethernet.

Thank you very much.
