You mean you are not able to print to a printer on your local network? If so, then you must enable this feature in your VPN software.

Might also be the case that the OP's local network and remote network are using the same addressing (e.g., 192.168.1.x). And so now routing is ambiguous. If the printer is using, say, on the local network, it's probably being routed over the VPN, which obviously is not right.

That's why it's important to make sure you always use different ip addressing between the local and remote networks. It’s a common mistake.
