Remote Desktop Connection Windows XP - Printing over VPN problem

    Question

  • Hello,

        I have an issue when connecting to VPN at my office with Windows XP.  The VPN connects fine, authenticates, and allows network activity without problems.

        The issue is that I want to bring my printers from home with me.

        On the remote desktop connection I remote to another PC in the office and have the check box checked on the remote desktop connection to "bring my printers with me."

        I have an HP LaserJet 1200 series printer and home and want to be able to print to this machine from the XP machine I remote into inside the office.  Thus - I can print documents to my home printer from work over the VPN.  My printer is not listed there.

        Is there any other settings I need to check or items that could be preventing this from working?  I believe the windows firewall is off.  The printer does work at home so I just need it to display on the computers I'm remoted into and shouldn't have to install the driver on each PC since its worked before with other computers and printers in the past for the most part.

        Any ideas?

     

    Thanks,

    Dan
