I have to disconnect VPN in order to print.

Specs: Windows XP
We have several laptop users at one site sharing a printer but can only print to it when disconnected from VPN. Is there a way around this so that we do not have to disconnect from VPN in order to print.

Not an easy way. The point of a vpn is to make a secure connection from you laptop to the other site. I assume you have a local printer that you need to print from so that lan feature is being blocked by design of the vpn. Some people suggest breaking that security and allowing the lan to have access but that defeats the vpn in my opinion and creates a security issue.

One way that may work is some sort of remote desktop where you have two desktops then integrate the printer into the rdp.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.
