    RDP Printing Issues

    Hello all,

    I have an issue with regards to printing from RDP on an XP machine to server 2003.
    The issue is, that although the software or documents are on win 2K3, the user wishes to print on the local (non networked) XP machines printer.
    Is there an easy fix for this?
    I have gone through the RDP settings, and have tried to add the printer through 2K3, but with no success.
    I have come accross this once before, but I cannot remeber what the resolution was!
    Any ideas would be gratefully received!

    Are these USB printers ? If so there is a reg hack you can use on the host machine...

    Printers That Use Ports That Do Not Begin With COM, LPT, or USB Are Not Redirected in a Remote Desktop or Terminal Services Session
