Hi
  I will outline my setup below:
 
  I have a client wit with SBS 2003 and client pc connected to it, this hq has with 1 remote office connect using a VPN.

  The remote site is remotely dialling onto the a PC on hq network using remote desktop.  This pc is an XP pro pc.  The client runs applications on this pc.  The remote client needs to be able to print from this remote session locally.  I know you can do this using an sbs server but can the same configuration be done if dialling onto an XP pro pc.

Any assistance would be very helpull

Thanks
Stephen

If he is connecting to an XP Workstation on the SBS's LAN, then he should be doing this through Remote Web Workplace.  (see http://sbsurl.com/rww for info on that).  Then, on the Connect to Client Desktops Menu, there is a "More Options" link which if you click will expand a few more settings, one of which is "Enable documents on the remote computer to be printed on a local printer".
