Yes.

You can use the local printer with the remote connection..In terminal services options you have to check "printers" before connecting.

Also if you have installed sp1 if will have the fallback print driver or you may need to install the print driver on the terminal server

Option Explicit
Dim objPrinter
Set objPrinter = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
objPrinter.SetDefaultPrinter "\\Servername\Printername"
