Remote control printer to print photos or documents
 
Hello, I am a college student in China
My home now has a connected 'HP MP250' printer with the UbuntuServer host
I wanted to send a message to my parents by controlling the UbuntuServer to print the file remotely
Is there any software that can be implemented?Or another way.

Sometimes I need to print documents, sometimes I need to help them print photos

Thank you very much.

Set up a VPN server on the Ubuntu system at your parents house, and use it to connect to their network, and print whatever you want.

So what? Use a different search engine; use TOR; use a VPN, or use whatever you used to find THIS site. And if you don't like your countries policies, get active and change them.

Searching for "how to print from linux command line" will give you plenty of results. Look at the lp command, but you are not thinking about this correctly. When you establish a VPN connection between your network and your parents, their printer will be available to YOUR SYSTEM, over the network. Set up a network printer as you normally would, and print to it using whatever program you'd like.

I'm sorry that I didn't reply in time when I was at school these days.
Thank you very much for your reply:)
