Using Network Printer While Connected to Cisco VPN

Hello,

I just set-up a Lexmark X502n network printer at my father's home office.  The printer works perfectly, but will not print when he logs onto his work Cisco VPN client.  My guess is that the network admin has restricted all traffic while he is connected to use the remote default gateway, and blocked the local network one.

Is there anyway around this from my father's end?  Could I add some static routes to the local routing table or something?  Not sure if static routes are persistent or if I need to configure them each time he logs in with a batch file.  Any help would be appreciated.

To connect to local network while connected to the VPN, the VPN admin must enable split tunneling.

Yeah, split tunneling or "local LAN" needs to be configured on the VPN server.  The client does not allow you to bypass this restriction.  Can you connect to the printer locally via USB to get around this if the "network admin" is unwilling to assist?

I can, but I'd prefer not to as my father has multiple computers in the house that need to print to this printer.

Okay, then you'll need to talk to the network admin and see if he is willing to configure split tunneling.
