How do I print on the local computer from the terminal server window.
If I can not do it natively are there any third party utilities that can help.

Which local computer- the one you are remoting to or the one you are remoting FROM?

If you want to print from the remote computer from within the RDC screen, just login and install the printer drivers and print to it.

If you want to print to aprinter attached to your local computer from within the RDC screen, you would need the same setup as though you were printing from the remote pc console to the printer connected to your local computer. If it's a LAN or you have a private WAN link, just share it. If it's remote and both systems have a connection to the web, install the printer accessible from the Internet.
