This question is in regards to printing over a VPN.

I have 3 computers, call them computer work, home and college. Each has its own printer, call them printer work, home and college.

All PCs are running XP Pro. Work and College computers have their printers attached via parallel port LPT1, while computer home has the printer connected to Linksys router and has its own IP address.

All three computers use a Linksys router with VPN.

From work, I can see home and college desktops via Remote Desktop Control. When I do connect from work, home and college automatically create my work printer locally but I can't print from college/home to the work printer.

What I want to be able to do is connect to college computer and print a document to the college printer from work and home computers. I also want to be able to print to work from home and visa versa.

thanks in advance...
