You can configure a remote printer on your telnet server that points back to the printer on your telnet client.

I don't think that will be possible in my instance. I don't have permission to make modifications to the telnet server. I just hate to have to install windows on my machine so I can use my printer when connected. I guess I could try wine but thats more complicated than I was hoping for. I can't believe that there is no linux telnet client similar to the windows telnet clients that allow local printers during a telnet session.
