Steve, et al:
I am just guessing here, but I think the reason that VNC isn't including
this sort of thing is because it would probably be hard to do
cross-platform, especially when printing from a *nix machine which you are
viewing from a Windows desktop. :-)

Subject: RE: Printing
If you're on a LAN, you can share your printer and then print to it from
the remote computer. For example, if you have an HP LaserJet 1100 on
your admin PC and you want to print to it from \\Computer1, just share
your printer on the network.
On the remote computer do a "net use \\admin\laserjet1100" where admin
is your computer name and laserjet1100 is the assumed name of the share.
That is basically how Windows Terminal services pulls the trick off
except that it encapsulates the traffic along with the screen traffic.
It would be nice if VNC had this same feature but it looks like there is
no real interest to include it. Until then, you need to use the tactic
described above or the IP print server suggestion.
