Client is XP.

The client connects to his Business via pptp vpn.  He is able to browse his business's shares no problem.   I need to set it up, so when he's logged into the VPN, he can print LOCALLY at the printer sitting right next him. Is this possible?

Thanks

Is the printer right next to him a local printer or a network printer?

he is at home. The printer next to him is local attached to his PC.. He is a VPN client sitting in his house.

He wants to be able to print stuff he sees  during his VPN session, on to his local printer at his house. (ie: documents and things)

I have several users that connect PPTP too, I did not have to configure anything, the printer is already there. How are you connecting? What software are you using? What kind of firewall do you have? Has the person actually tried and failed to print something or are you just being proactive. Sorry so many questions but to me this was a non-issue.
