Hi,

Is this printer reachable by URL on your relay server? i mean, can you connect to it by using something like

\\SomePublicIpNumber\printername

If yes you can install the driver for this printer on your relay server and share the printer, if not possible you will need to setup a VPN tunnel to where the printer resides.
