    Hi everyone, had a question I couldn't find an answer for searching and was hoping someone might know.

    Here is the situation, I use a software to remotely connect to a PC (PC#2) in another location. When I use PC#1 to connect to PC#2 it cannot access the printer I have networked to PC#1.

    There is a piece of software I am using to generate reports on PC#2 that I would like to be able to print directly out of, as opposed to exporting the data, saving to PC#1, and printing.

    Thank you in advance for any advice!
