printing remotely through tunnelblick to home printer

Post by JordanThompson » Thu Jul 09, 2020 2:57 am

Hi all,
I am out of the house on my mac. I have openvpn running on my openwrt router. I am able to remotely access my hosts at home. I can even web to my printer.
My mac (which normally prints to the printer when I am at home) does not see my printer at home. When I try to add a printer on my mac, it doesn't see it either. I have tried connecting via IP, but there are issues with drivers as it doesn't know what kind of printer it is.

Any idea suggestions?

If your printer supports 'Google cloud print' it could be away around the problem. www.google.com/cloudprint/learn/printers

Just a second thought...Could it be a firewall issue on the MAC?
