If you are talking about network printer, then having connected to the VPN SSL in tunnel mode, user will just have to Add Printer specifying its LAN IP address. Of course printer has to know route-wise how to talk back to the VPN SSL client.

Hi Yuri,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

Yes, Printer is network printer. We did the Add of printer with the LAN IP address and printing is working but scanning is not working as scanning tool is a different utility as scanning driver is not installed with the printer driver.

 

Please suggest.

Printer is installed but while installing scanning tool getting "scanning device is not detected. Please turn on device" but device is already ON and able to print the files. Scanner need to be work on SSL VPN full tunnel.

 

Any help will be very appreciated.
