Can a home wireless printer work when connected via VPN to office network?

jonrempe
I've had two remote user's that were set up with HP Wireless printers and both of them are unable to print when connected via VPN. When off of VPN printer works fine.

Printer also works when connected via USB cable.

Can VPN or Printer be configured to work together?

    Hi,

    It may work, but the Work VPN may have a policy that enables a vpn firewall that lockes you out of your home network and only allowss communications between the work envirnment and the workstation the vpn client is on. (ie the firewall may allow traffic on 10.x.x.x but block 192.168.x.x)

    you may want to check with your system administrator in regards to the VPN setup and policy.

    if you want to get around it, connect the printer a a local usb (or parallel ) printer
