    Accepted Solution

    Yes, you can.  You will be able to access just about any resourse on the destination network, unless of course the resourse is blocked.

    If the firewalls allows it you can print from home, to be able to use netbios names you need to have a WINS-server specified on your computer. Othervise set up the printer with a DNS hostname or IP.
