When connecting to the network using RWW all appropriate optional settings are selected (like print to local printer) and the printer on the client side (the one who is connecting via RWW) has been shared and the everyone group has full permissions. However when the user tries to print a document from the network to his local connected printer at home the printer is not showing up in the browse window. Only the document viewer printer from his machine. What is the proper procedure for setting up a client to print from remote to his home printer????? Not much information on the technet or Microsoft or Harry's book either!!!

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

You need to install the local printer's driver on the SBS machine.  Download the correct driver from the web, then just go to Printers and Faxes, click on File > Server Properties > Drivers > Install.

Sorry for the late response but I just happened upon your message!  And don't give up on Harry's books... there's a new advanced one coming out next month!

Good Luck!

Even after adding the print drivers, the printer doesn't show up in the list, so how are you supposwed to print. The 'solution" above is only half the solution. Where's the rest of the info necessary to get local printing working through RWW.
