Telenetwork Printing

The Setup:

Home internet connected to Xfinity/Comcast ISP using Cisco Wireless BGN router(No Firewall rules or NATing are setup). PC and VOIP Phone are wired directly to that router. PC is a Win7 Pro, VOIP phone is Mitel 5300 series and connects to Mitel 5000 phone system at work via NATing of cisco 1841 gateway router at work and works as if it is connected via the LAN. Can call in and out at will.

Work LAN is Windows 2003 domain controller, print server, dhcp and dns. Multiple servers, hosts and printers on the network. Gateway router is cisco 1841 configured for "easy vpn" connection authenticated via domain controller.

The Scenario:
User connects to the LAN via cisco vpn 5.0 and uses Enterprise API to create sales orders, add customers and run reports, make and answer telephone calls as if they were at work.

The question:
Can I take an existing networked printer (that already works on the LAN) to that location and connect it to the VOIP phones switch port, connect to the LAN via cisco vpn and print to that printer from the Enterprise API as if it was connected to the LAN? If so how do I make it work? Because I have already tried with no success.

Or is there an alternative solution? I've tried connecting the printer to the router and running a switch form the router or from the VIOP Phone. The one thing I have not tried is split tunneling on the vpn connection. Could use some advice as to how to get this to work OR what I should do to make it possible for the user to print from the Enterprise API?

The user would need to define the printer on their home computer and share it.  Then Enterprise API would be able to use the users computer as a print server and send the output to it.
