You got to remember that a VPN will allow a remote computer to appear as
though it were a node on the network. So I suggest that you share your home
printer. Then on the PC your connecting to with VNC thru the VPN print to
it. Since you are now a node on the network there should not be any reason
the other pc that you are connecting to thru VNC should not be able to see

afaik vnc can't, but citrix metaframe can, among others. maybe they
are using some publicly available trick that you can use as well...
not sure though.
or if you are on the same network as the server, simply use the OS's
printer sharing support.
