using microphone with 2003 Terminal Server

We are using Windows 2003 Terminal server and Win XP Pro clients and would like to use a microphone, preferably a USB one, in our terminal server sessions.  Is there any way to do this?
Currently, we can only get the microphone to work on the client - it does not get transferred to the server.  Do I just have to install the drivers on the server (similar to printer forwarding) or is it not possible or what?

Yes it is possible but only in Advanced and Enterprise editions of MPS 3.0 or MPS 4.0.  Multidirectional audio is not supported in Standard Edition or any previous version of Citrix.  See here: http://www.citrix.com/site/resources/dynamic/salesdocs/CitrixPresentationServerComparativeMatrix01SEPT2005.pdf

If you meet these requirements then make sure you have the audio virutal channels enabled.

sorry for that - I guess I read your question too quickly.

MS Terminal Server does NOT support bi-directional audio.  There may be other products out there but Citrix is the only one I know of that will enable you to do this.  I did a quick google search on the subject and couldn't find any products other than Citrix.
