    SMB (server message block) is the protocol that Windows uses to do all this sharing functionality and the network neighborhood and stuff. That essentially means that if there are no firewalls in the way, you can share your printer from your computer and connect to it from your office computer (which you are remote controlling from home) by adding a network printer.

    I actually would have sygate routing the vnc.... in this case would that block access to a networked printer?

    this sounds like I wouldn't even use the linux though

    vnc will run on both 98s and then I need to run an internet networked printer at home.

    any more details on setting up the home computers printer as a networked (internet) printer would help... can I just set up a share on the printer then access it through vnc remote terminal.
