cannot print out of terminal services

I currently have a clients computer that is running windows 2000 pro on a windows 2000 server that cannot print to a Dell A940 printer out of Terminal Services.
Our company has 3 locations and we use Terminal services to logon to the application server at another location. When this computer is logged onto the other server and tries to print to his Dell printer, the print job will not send to his printer that is connected to the client computer. But when I set his default print to print to another shared printer that is connected to the client computer it will print. The printer that he can print to is an HP deskjet printer. Can someone please help me?

Have you checked the event logs on the terminal server? It could be that you just need to install the correct print driver for this printer on the server,

Thank you for your help. The printer was supposed to be setup on the server and it was not. I installed the printer as a shared printer and it worked.
