Internet Printing?

By info ·
I have never been able to get Internet Printing to work for me. I have tried following all of the different answers found, but it never quite works.

I do an RDP, with a Static IP, into a Windows 2000 Server to access my application from the Internet. And now I need to print from that application to the printer connected to my laptop. Since I am in a Remote connection, I am unable to find my local printer.

I do have the access to my local printer and drives set to allow the access. How do I get my Local Printer to show up as an available printer? I must be missing a very basic step in the process.

Need to setup a VPN from your desktop to your server, once your in the server launch the VPN connection, then add the printer on the server in question.

you could try hamachi for a free/easy VPN fix

install on server and client, using hamachi create a network name and password on server then connect to the "network" and supply yoiur password. Just that easy, i believe hamachi uses a 5.x.x.x network/subnet
