TS Printing over ADSL


G

Guest

Hi!
Our company has a Windows 2003 TS (all client are Win2k SP4). One of our
offices is a small room in an office block supplied as office space by
another company (basically a serviced office).
We have two clients with private IP addresses going through an ADSL router
and VPNing a TS session to our TS server.
However! They have a printer and want to print over the network. I can't
publish it as it has no IP address to point to, and I cant use a Printer
Server because of the private IP addresses.
Any ideas of how to get this printer on the network, or am I going to have
to ditch TS Sessions and get people to print locally via a USB print switch?
Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

Why can't you do a print server on the VPN? At that point it would be on the
network, and they could see it from the TS session.

The clients DHCP from the ADSL router. Then they establish the VPN to our
Network and fire up Remote Desktop (TS Client Connection). But if I have a
PS attached to the back of our printer not VPNing how will it get an IP
address from our DHCP server? It'll have one from the ADSL router that the
Terminal Server won't know about becaus it's using the private IP addressing
scheme (198.168.x.x/10.0.x.x) etc.
Does that make sense?
