Why can't I print from my local computer while I'm using the VPN?

Printer-friendly version

When you're connected to your office computer over the VPN, your office computer is the primary computer; your remote computer essential becomes just another peripheral for the office computer. So printing capabilities are restricted to your office computer while you're connected. To print documents stored on your office computer locally, you'll need to download those documents to your local computer and print them after you've disconnected from the VPN.
