Windows 2000 Terminal Server printing to clients printer

Hope you can help me with this one.\
I have a W2k Terminal Server, and clients accessing it via VPN. They use remote desktop connection in XP Pro. I set up the user profiles in the TS server to connect to the client's printer. When the client is logged in I can see their printer in Printers but it says unable to connect. Can you help me resolve this.


Regards

Hi
How is it connected to the client?
Just in case it's relevant,
Printers That Use Ports That Do Not Begin With COM, LPT, or USB Are Not Redirected in a Remote Desktop or Terminal Services Session

Printer Redirection Architecture in Windows Server Terminal Services

If these aren't useful please could you give more information about what you did to set this up, and any errors logged on the server and the client,

Hope this helps
