I know that this question has been asked before but I cant seem to find the answer i need.
I have a satelitte office with a standard DSL wireless router - a printer is connected to this along with a few pc's. These PC's all have the printer installed and can print fine wirelessly. When they make a standard ms vpn connection to the main office they are then unable to print to the local printer.
All the advice I have seen relating to this issue recommends 'Uncheck use default gateway on remote network', however, this is already unchecked - in fact the opposite seems to be true, if it is unchecked i can access all recources via vpn but not the local printer - if it is checked I can print locally but although the vpn appears to connect I dont have access to any resources!
hmm, scratching my head on this - any help very grafefully received.
Thanks, Andy

Make sure that the subnet in the remote office is different from the head office subnet. Also, make sure that the local subnet is not configured to be encrypted.

hmm. that sounds like it could be the reason as i did notice that both subnets were the same - i will give it a try as as soon as i can.
