trying to remotley print to to win box usb printer


I have this senario:

In my lan a have a linux box and and windows box.
The windows box is just win (box z) and the linux box dual boots lin/win (box a).

Across the wan I have a windows box with a printer on it (box b). Its IP is dynamic but I have it setup for dns. I does work.

I would like to print across the wan to box b from a or z but mainly from A the lin client.

Ok I know I could vnc on both (a-b) right but I am confused how I will set the print buttons up.

Also I have smb for the box a to box z realtionship so I can share files between them.
