Please bear with me, my server and networking knowledge is not amazing.
The company that I work for has a central 'Head Office'. This is where our server room is located. We have a bunch of Windows severs providing services such as AD, Group Policy, DNS and Printing etc.
We also have a bunch of remote sites, most usually run a wireless network with a printer attached. All of the employees in each site can connect back to our main network via a VPN using a Cisco VPN application on their desktops.
We have a problem where whenever someone travels out onto a remote site, they often cannot print because they need to install the Drivers for the site based Multi-Function Network Printers. They cannot do this because, they don't have admin rights therefore, I have to remotely connect to their laptops via TeamViewer and then install it for them with my Admin password (while they have VPN connected).
Back at Head Office, all of our printers are networked and no drivers are required to be manually installed. (I assume Group Policy handles this).
Is it possible to have all of my remote printers automatically install on all computers via Group Policy, even though they are remote? There is no VPN between the remote networks and Head Office however, the VPN is established directly from the clients out on those sites and Head Office, which means the remote printers are not visible from Head Office.
I was thinking that maybe when the computers connect via VPN, they would be able to download the drivers for their local printer.
How should I handle this situation?
