Printing Over the Internet

By dilkarajasss ·
ok guys i did my research but i got no answer, so maybe this will help me. I have a desktop computer at home with win98SE with a HP Officejet printer on it that is shared. I also have an Alienware laptop that is running on winxp. I have a wireless network that is running on these computers with a workgroup and at home i can use the HP Officejet with both the computers. The Alienware is using the printer wirelessly. Now my main problem is this: i go to school with my laptop and the school provides wireless internet for us, i want to be able to connect to my printer from the school's internet and print documents. my windowns 98SE is not a server or anything. some please help me do this .

The obvious answer is that you will need to set up a VPN tunnel to your home router. Whether your router can support this capability depends on the model and other factors such as whether you ISP will allow you to have a static IP address.

Unless you are willing to spend the money, I'd advise you waiting till you get home to print.

Im sure the school would not allow the VPN connection anyway, as was suggested prior. That would the be only way, and like he said, would be very difficult. Why not just print whatever you want to pdf, then send it home and print it from the pdf file?
