Printing Local Vs. Remote

Printing is traditionally one of the most difficult areas of Virtual Office configurations.  Fortunately the right software can in fact allow printers to show up when users are using normal applications like Word, Excel PDF etc when trying to print.  Correct configuration offers the optional printers as the company printer networked or accessible from the Virtual Gateway Host computer, and the printer drivers loaded on each individual client.  In this way a connection from user 4 will display optional printers they have on User4’s machine AND the corporate printer.  Remote printing can also be disables if security prevents such remote printing.

Printing can become a burden if users are offsite so make sure to know if you want to allow home printers to be used before you install and configure the software.
