OS 2.1 and Print To Go

The OS 2.1 update includes, we're told, an improvement to Print To Go so that you can print from your PC to your Playbook even if they are connected to different networks.  This is very exciting, but it doesn't seem to work.  Also, there is no update available (from what I can tell) to the desktop Print To Go driver.

 

I can reliably print to my Playbook whenit is on thesame network as my PC and just as reliably, I cannot print to it when they are not on the same network.  In the latter case, the error message I get helpfully suggests that I make sure myPlaybook and PC are both connected to the same wireless network.

 

This would seem to confirm my suspicion that the upgrade is not actually finished until new desktop software is released.  Does anyone haveany insight?
