Sharing a printer on a wireless network

Help! I can't get the printers to share properly on my network at school. I've got a printer hooked up to a machine running Windows XP SP2. This printer is being shared and all of the other computers connected to the school's network via LAN lines will access this printer and print with no problems. However, when any of the grad students using laptops that are connecting to the network wirelessly (through a VPN client) cannot find this printer at all. Even if I hook them up to a LAN line and add the printer, it won't work when I am using the VPN client. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
