As far as I know, the VPN (both the old Cisco IPSec kind, and the new
AnyConnect client) don't allow "split tunneling", meaning that when you
are connected, all your traffic must go to UVM. If you can't print to
your home network printer when you're at UVM, you won't be able to print
to it while you're connected to the VPN, either.
Direct-connected printers (eg USB) still work fine, though.
