Logon to One Network, Print to Another

Hello to All -

Helping a client who wants to get her Corp. e-mail by logging in to her remote Corp domain, and then print attachments and other docs to a printer on the LAN. She uses a laptop, does a lot of traveling and doesn't want to directly connect a printer.

** Peer-to-Peer local network via cable broadband modem and D-Link router.
** Wants to print to a HP Laserjet 4 Plus that is connected LPT1 to another PC in the network and shared on the LAN
** All machines are Windows XP Pro

Ideally, she would logon to her Corp domain and print locally without a lot of manual configuring -- connect to both networks?

All help will be appreciated,

I dont think you can do that without logging her into the PC with the Laserjet everytime she reboots.  My only suggestion would be to get an external or internal Jet Direct card for that Laserjet 4, put it on the network with an IP address and setup an IP printing port for her.

This would result in the seamless operation you are looking for.

Thank You, Stuart, for the prompt reply. While I would rather figure out a way to log in to both the remote and local networks at the same time with this client, your answer is definitely worthwhile and when this thread is complete I'll add points to show proper appreciation for your help.
