Hi, may be it is a silly question but I will post it anyway. Is there a way to configure CUPS in a droplet to use a printer connected to my laptop?

I'am actually looking for something similar. Did you find any solution for this?
I would like to “push” a local cups printer to a droplet so as to use it from a remote site. The local network is very restricted so I cannot access it from the outside. Only way I figure is to somehow tunneling traffic between a local cups server and a droplet.
Is there anyway to get this working?

Hi All,
