    You would need to manually connect to the work printer the same as if you were in your office... Usually this is done by going to start, run and then entering \\<printer server name> and click OK. Go through the list of printers, right click the one you want and choose Connect.

    There may be a way to have this happen in a more automated way, but you'll have to have your IT people set up a login script or policy to do it.
