I have several W2000 pc's using rdp to connected too a terminal server W2003. 1 pc doesn't connect the local printer even if I try it with a LaserJet 4 on LPT1. There is no error in the event log on the TS and PC. Can anybody tell me where to start searching?

First, if you run Remote Desktop Connection and go to the Local Resources tab, is the Printers box checked?

If that isn't the problem try upgrading the client to version 5.2.  You can find the installer under %systemroot%\system32\clients\tsclient on your 2003 server (assuming SP1 is installed) or it can be obtained here:
