Routing and Remote Access blocking printers?

OK, I have a Windows 2000 Server with 2 nics running Routing and Remote
Access. One NIC is set to 192.168.5.x and the other is set to 192.168.1.x.
Both IP ranges are in our subnet of 255.255.255.0, just separate ranges for
separate offices. On the 5.x side on the client computers, I can ping and
connect to any computer on the 1.x side. But I can't ping any printers that
reside on the 1.x range. I also cannot ping any printers residing in the
5.x range from the 1.x side. What's going on? Thanks.

OK, I've since disabled and reconfigured the Routing and Remote Access
Server, on the possiblity that the Win2K routing was the problem. That didn't
fix it. So what other possibilities exist to prevent printers on the 1.x side
from responding to pings from the 5.x side, as well as the printers on the
5.x side not responding to pings from the 1.x side. There is obviously a
disconnect. Does Active Directory or Group Policies have any bearing on
printer sharing?
