    this issue is actualy resolved on IIS6 or higher.

    I would recommend you to upgrade your system.

    I guess that your printing code (that you have not posted here) is trying to print by using ASP.NET/VB code. Problem is that ASP.NET code runs/executes at server side machine NOT at the client machine. So when you test it in your own machine, where it acts as the server AND as the client at the same time, your works flawlesslly. But when you deploy it to a real server (IIS any version), your code will try to print to any printer available at the server NOT at the client machine.

    So, if you want to print the content of your page (HTML) then using simple javascript window.print() and for other more advanced scenarios (like printing PDF, DOC, XLS, or raw printer commands) then you might need some help from an external tool.
