VPN - Printing While Connected to the Southwest Tech VPN

This document will show you how to print when using the Southwest Tech VPN.

Overview

  • For security purposes, while connected to the Southwest Tech VPN, you will be unable to print to a wireless-enabled printer in your home.

  • USB connected printers are not affected by VPN connectivity and you will be able to print as normal.

Workaround

  1. To print from your SWTC issued device to a wireless printer at home, save your document to the local computer storage (i.e. Documents or Desktop; if you save the document to a network drive, you will be unable to access it after disconnecting from the VPN).

  2. Disconnect from the VPN.  See the following document for help navigating the VPN software: VPN - Connect to the Southwest Tech VPN

  3. Once disconnected you will now have access to your home printer again.

  4. Print the documents needed and then reconnect to the VPN to continue your work.
