Share Workgroup printer when on a Domain

I have a remote user that VPN's into the local domain. She connects through a router that has a local work group on that end.

One other computer on that workgroup has a printer she would like to use while still connect to our domain. When I try to add it as a printer I get...

A policy is in effect on your computer which prevents you from connecting to this print queue. Please contact your sys admin.

I am new to SBS 2003 and not sure where to find this policy to give rights. Yelp!

Remote printer redirect doesn't work with networked printers.  It can only be a printer that's attached to the workstation remoting in.

For a full overview of Terminal Server Printer Redirection (RDP printer redirection) see:

You have to be a local administrator to connect a workgroup printer.

Or on the computer that share the printer, you need to enable the guest account.
