Printing with an All-in-One while using a Remote Desktop Connection

I have shared numerous printers successfully while using Remote Desktop Connection to access my computer at work.  I recently got an HP All in One 4200 series at home and have been unable to print to it from the Host ( my work desktop).  It appears to be installed and when I print a test page it appears in the print queue and says it's printing but doesn't.

 I have tried various ports....

  I used the MS Knowlege base fix for printers that are not redirected in a RD session...
 
  (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;q302361)

 And I tried creating printers in both places using HP DJ 550 drivers as I saw someone else suggest.

  None of these solved my problem.

  Any ideas?

What version of XP are you using on your home PC AND at work?  Pro, Home or a mixture of the two ?

I have XP Pro on my desktop at work and XP Home on my laptop.  

Since I posted the question I've spoken with HP support and they say the 4200 All-in-One series doesn't support remote printing.  They instructed me to try using alternate drivers and creating a TCP/IP port but so far their advice hasn't helped either.
