Printing while using FreeDome VPN?

How can I print to a printer connected to my local area network, while I am using F-Secure FreeDome VPN?

Now it seems I have to discontinue using VPN in order to print.

    Hello @PetteriPunakuono ,

    thank you for contacting us!

    On which device is the problem occurring? Is it on a mobile device or on your PC?

    When you connect to a VPN, the VPN software establishes a dedicated connection known as a tunnel to the VPN server in the FoxyProxy network. This re-routing of data to a remote network may make it very difficult to access local network resources such as printers and routers.

    Here I have described how to add a local network as trusted to the program. Please follow the steps and try again.

    1. Open F-Secure FREEDOME user interface
    2. Turn OFF the VPN protection 
    3. Go to Settings
    4. Enable Automatic killswitch
    5. Click Allow connections to other devices in trusted networks
    6. Select the network used in Trusted networks dialog
    7. Click Save 

    If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

    Best regards! :)
