    I have an issue I was hoping someone else has had and could guide me on. I have remote users accessing Unix systems behind a firewall using RealVNC, and they have "local" desktop printers attached to their remote systems. How can they print files from the VNC session on their local printers? The firewall team only allows the RealVNC "session-manager" port to be opened, and they are very restrictive...however the remote users need to print locally due to the fact that there are no print servers in the environment they connect to with VNC. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I don't believe any VNC flavor supports that functionality.
