Default Remote PRinting

Hi, I have a server that I use here at home as a FTP/HTTP/Print server. I want to though be able to print on this computer form anywhere where I am that has an internet connection. So I want to know which ports I should direct to my server in order to be able to print form a remote location. Example of what I want to do:
I am at school, and I want to print out a research document from my laptop, but want it printed at home. I want to be able have my laptop send the print job to my IP address of the server and have the print server, then, print it out on the printer connected to it.

The printer is connected via USB, the server has Windows 2K3 server on it, and the remote computers have Windows XP on them. THANK YOU!

Default Re: Remote PRinting

Are you using Internet Printing Protocol in IIS? If so, I haven't used it but, I believe that you can connect to it by just specifing http://printserver_name/Printers/share_name
