Remote printing

Hi all,

 

We recently moved employees from our office to their homes to work remotely and everything is up and running with normal database functions with one exception.  I'd like to be able to have them print to my printer (remote printing).  e.g. they generate an invoice and, when they print it, it comes out on my printer.

 

I've read about Google Cloud Print and HP's eprint, but those do not appear to do what I'm hoping.  Is there a way for filemaker to be programmed to do this or is it handled another way?

 

We are using FM10 and 11 and Mac computers.  Printer is an HP M602 currently connected to my network via ethernet.

 

Thanks in advance.
