Printing Local and Connected to VPN

Hello, looking for some help on VPN settings. Issue is home users are unable to print or ping to local printers while connected to Client VPN.

Assume you’re sending all traffic down the vpn?  Can you enable split tunnelling?

Do you have overlapping subnets with the VPN and the user's home network?

 

Things to check would be:

 - What local IP is the user's client?

 - What VPN IP is the user's client?

 - What IP is the printer?

 - What is the output from the client's route table when VPN is connected?

Agree it sounds like a tunnelling issue. We see this all the time with people using VPN's like hotspot shield and trying to print to local printers.
