Remote Printing Through a VPN tunnel

We have a PIX 501 setup using MS VPN client on remote computers to access MS Remote Desktop or Remote Web Workplace. This works OK but when a user tries to print something running on their office computer at their home printer the computer inside the network can not see their local printer at home. Because some of these people consult for several other companies where they are doing this successfully they don't want to install any special software like Cisco VPN Client. I am open to all suggestions.

Re: Remote Printing Through a VPN tunnel

You will have to configure split-tunnel on the VPN gateway and push it to the VPN clients. This will tell the client on what to encrypt (for VPN) and leave the other traffic in plan text for local printing. Otherwise, all your traffic will be encrypted and sent to the VPN gateway.
