Ok, simple question here.

I have a computer or three in location a (along with a windows server 2003). I have a printer in location B. We used to use a computer in location B to connect to the printer and the VPN, but we are getting rid of the computer. How to connect the printer in place B to Place A? yes, I know a VPN is needed, but how to configure a printer for a VPN?? Is this possible. Is there a printer server with these capabilities?

You probably need to replace the computer you are getting rid of. Unless you have some sort of enterprise printer that supports VPNs you are going to need a computer to run that printer.

I've never heard of any printer which can run as a VPN client let alone a server. Entereprise or not. You need to get another VPN device back at location B. I don't know how your VPN is set up so I can't comment on what you need.

So if I got a set of devices meant for VPN, put one in each location, that would be the way to do it?
Any recommended VPN devices?
