Hello,

Would it be possible for someone to print to their home PC when they are working on XP (home) but remote desktopped into their XP professional work PC...

Would it just be a case of going into the remote desktop properties and selecting: "printers" under local devices?

Cheers,

L

There are several aps you can buy or subscribe to that will allow remote access even with XP home or Windows 9X systems.

One is called PC Anywhere, another Logmein and yet another is called Go To My PC.
There is also another, freeware named RealVNC which is cross platform and can be used with Linux and Solarus.

You can also use remote access from any other computer to one running XP Pro.

One workaround for your print question is that you probably might be able to email whatever it is that you want to print locally to your email account as an attachment and then print it.
