Remote control s/w that allows printing back to the remote site

Hi,

I need to set-up a vpn to another office to allow a user access to a database application and would like to configure printing so they can print to a printer in their own office i.e. the remote office.  I don't want to spend a lot of money on this so Terminal Services or Citrix isn't feasible.  Any suggestions for a low cost app like PCAnywhere but with print to remote capabilities?

Thanks

Yes. You can use your local printer, the remote printer or both from an RDP session.

TCP port 3389 is the default. You can change it on the workstation to whatever you want, but there's no real need to do that.
